Lord God, forgive me when the deluge of weariness waters the seeds of doubt planted by the enemy. Too often I strive with the monsters You have already defeated on my behalf. Too often I engage them in unnecessary battles. Victory has been secured by You, Jesus. I need not fear or doubt any longer. I need not insult Your holiness by indulging these monstrous enemies of the past. I may never rid myself of the perpetual sowing of enemy seeds in my heart while on this side of the veil; but let my prayers take aim at the root of the resulting insecurity and challenge my faith with zeal and perseverance. Lord, protect Your beloved from the injurious nature of the venomous deceit which permeates the world around me. Make me remember Your perpetual mercies and unending grace that has carried me to the point I am today. How could I ever doubt the One who has proven His faithful love upon the cross and then so personally each day of my life? Jesus, Your kindness gives no room for suspicion, making the sin of doubt unwarranted and foolish. My soul is fully Yours, created by Your hands, loved by Your heart. Let my response to Your heavenly affection be true devotion empowered in trust that pushes the monster of doubt back into the shadow realm. I need not fear what life brings because You are with me. Under the mighty Word of the Lord found in Mark 6:50 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I bow in adoring prayer.
Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” He said. “Take courage! I am here!”
Mark 6:50, NLT
