The first was what I learned and came to believe to be the truth of God. I walked around with a small “gold” bound promises book filled with the promises of God. I read them out loud in my home, in my car at stop signs and traffic lights, and whenever I had a moment.
When a circumstance arrives, it is the promise of God that prevails. That stands up in the face of fears and does not bow to the winds of words and the attacks of the enemy. (I so struggle when people desire to use a personal experience to “disprove” the words of God. Or to justify why “it doesn’t work”. To sacrifice the word for the sake of man’s opinion does not a theology make.)
The second piece was to discover who I am in Christ. What did my acceptance of Christ mean to me? How did I change? Who did I become? What could I stand on and walk in? Those are what I call the “I am’s” of God.
I have started putting together a devotional predicated on these. I am only writing one a day while I work on my other books, my job and my family.
