“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that HE IS, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6)

1. Today I will live in the now! I will live in the now because I understand that God is in the now . . . that He is the “I Am” . . . that He lives in eternity where one day equals a thousand years (and vice versa), so that He is not bound by the limitations of natural time. Anything can happen today!

2. Today I make the decision to walk by faith for the next 24 hours, because I know that faith is now and that it is impossible to please God without faith. I will conduct the affairs of my day according to what I believe, rather than by my five natural senses. I will walk by faith today, and not by sight.

3. Today I will not hesitate to approach the Throne of Grace, because it is written that “he who COMES (continually) to God” will have God-pleasing faith. My righteousness consciousness will prevent my heart from condemning me, so that I can make myself comfortable in God’s presence and can feel at home there!

4. Today I will diligently seek God and His Kingdom. In every circumstance that occurs today, I will look for the Kingdom truth or principle that is being communicated to me. I will listen diligently for the voice of the Good Shepherd in every conversation that I have. I will be relentless in my pursuit of Him today.

5. Today I will believe that God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. I will be perceptive enough to recognize a reward when it comes to me today, and I will have the boldness to accept it and enjoy it. The discovery of rewards will cause this day to be a great adventure for me. It will be a day of increase for me!

6. Today I will be thankful for what God has done for me previously, but I will pull myself out of the past (where He was), so that I can live my extraordinary faith-life where HE IS! I believe that God IS . . . HE IS! . . . HE IS! . . . HE IS!

7. Today I will not miss one miracle that is headed my way. My expectation and faith-filled words will cause me to attract God’s best, and to repel what is negative and counterproductive to the Kingdom. I know that I am blessed today because I know that God is, and today I will live in the now!

 

 

 
Father, I come to You today, believing that YOU ARE, and that You are my rewarder because I diligently seek You. Help me to keep my focus on You today. In Jesus’ name, amen.
