Thank You! And, What God Has to Say about His Word

First, may I just say ya’ll are THE BEST! Thank you for taking the time to share your questions on prayer. And, even more, thank you for your honesty and vulnerability. I have created a notebook compiling your questions and can’t wait to begin the adventure of answering them one by one in preparation for writing this book. Ya’ll I gathered nearly 70 questions!! Who knew? I’m so thankful ya’ll love prayer as much as I do!!

Many of your questions talked about praying God’s Word. So today, I thought I would share precious truths and promises about God’s Word. God has much to say in the Bible about the purpose and value of His living and active Word. He gives us powerful truths. Life-changing promises. All to incorporate into our prayers!

IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD, AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD, AND THE WORD WAS GOD.  HE WAS WITH GOD IN THE BEGINNING. THROUGH HIM ALL THINGS WERE MADE; WITHOUT HIM NOTHING WAS MADE THAT HAS BEEN MADE. JOHN 1:1-3

Man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. Deuteronomy 8:3

Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Deuteronomy 6:6-9; 11:18-19

How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to Your Word. Psalm 119:9

Your Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. Psalm 119:105

As for God, His way is perfect; the Word of the Lord is flawless. 2 Sam. 22:31; Proverbs 30:5

My Word that goes out from My mouth: it will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it out. Isaiah 55:11

Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. Colossians 3:16

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the Word of Truth. 2 Timothy 2:15

For the Word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

Do not merely listen to the Word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.  James 1:22

And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. 2 Peter 1:19

When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart’s delight. Jeremiah 15:16

Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away. Matthew 24:35

If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you wish and it will be given you. John 15:7

Put on the full armor of God … Take the … Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God … And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. Eph. 6:11; 17-18

I would love to hear YOUR favorite verses about God’s Word. Please share them in the comments.

“I Am Loved” Faith Proclamation for You

Happy Thanksgiving week!!

I always love this week because it’s often a slower-paced week, good for resting and relaxing. I pray you find some time to rest and spend time with friends and/or family.

Before I share my news, if you’re looking for the winner of Suzie’s giveaway from my last post, I announce the winner at the end of today’s post.

I have some fun news to share with ya’ll. I know you, like me, LOVE God’s Word and Bible study. In a few weeks, my next book releases. It’s a study of 1 John entitled I Am Loved: Living in the Fullness of God’s Love. You can read a sneak peek at Week 1’s study here.

Over the next weeks and months we’ll have some fun giveaways and surprises for you. So watch your inbox! If you’re not already a subscriber, join us here. I’d love to also have you join our launch team. Get more info here.

Today, I’m sharing a faith declaration I created for the study. I thought Thanksgiving would be a great time to be grateful for, and declare God’s promises over, our hearts.

In the near future, when time allows, I will make this declaration available in a printable. But, for today, I pray you’ll take a few minutes, sit quietly with the Lord and speak these precious promises over your heart. May confidence and strength rise up within you as you remind yourself of who and Whose you are.

 I am Loved, a Bible study on 1 John by Wendy Blight.

“I Am Loved” Faith Declaration

Abba Father, I proclaim this day …

I am forgiven redeemed, cleansed, and sanctified by the blood of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. (1 John 1:7; Ephesians 1:7)

My body is the temple of the God’s Holy Spirit. (1 Corinthians 6:19)

I am an instrument of God’s righteousness, yielded to Him for His service and His glory. (Romans 6:13)

I am a vessel of His goodness, mercy, love, and grace. (2 Corinthians 4:7-10)

The devil has no hold on me and no power over me. Fear cannot control me. Anxiety cannot overwhelm me. I am a blood-bought daughter of the One True God. (1 John 4:4, Revelation 12:11)

I will stand steadfast in the Commander of heaven’s armies. Every battle is His, and by His power, no weapon formed against me shall ever prosper. (Psalm 91:7-8)

I have overcome Satan, and I crucify my flesh, my pride, my ego, and desiring my own way to the glory of my Father in Heaven. (Romans 8:31-38)

I receive in all its fullness the mind of Christ, and I stand on and commit to walk in the truth that my heart, my mind, and my body belong to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 2:12-16)

I am a covenant child of God Most High. Bought with the blood of Jesus. I will contend for my faith. I not waver. I will be bold and brave, standing confidently in who and Whose I am. (1 John 3:8; Hebrews 2:14-15; Psalm 91:13)

I am a daughter of the Conquering King. Greater is He who lives in me than he who lives in the world. I know this. I believe this. I commit to live this. And because of this, I will live a life of victory that brings honor and glory and praise to my King. Amen.
