I'm Claiming God's Promises!

In the Bible God promises to take care of us and tells us that He will meet our needs. By the blood of Jesus Christ I am claiming those promises. Because He promised... and He cannot lie!!

I'm claiming the promise of healing for my husband.
Praise the LORD, O my soul;all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits- who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

I'm claiming the promise that I have no need to worry."Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, "

I'm claiming the promise that there is no need for fear.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

I'm claiming the promise that God will meet our needs.But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

I'm claiming the blood of Christ to annoint and protect my family.For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.

And above all.....

Come to me, all of you who are tired and have heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Mathew 11:30 .Isaiah 26:3 says, "And You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You." Fix your mind on Jesus in the midst of your problems. Lean hard on Him. Think only on that which is true and honorable and right (Phil. 4:8). Put your life in His hands, and trust Him with the results.

I am walking by faith today and pray I have the strength to do it again tomorrow.

That is awesome! God's Word and the promises He gives us are what has made the past year bearable. It is what gets me out of the bed every morning and gets me through the day, each and every day. I give Him all the praise and glory for whatever is done in our lives to glorify Him.
