From the 40 Days of Daily Bread Series.
Yesterday we had a glimpse into Sally’s life. If you missed what’s going on click here.
Sally looked at what she had just written in her journal and began to feel a fight rising from inside her. She sensed the Lord was with her and she started praying:
The enemy is constantly lying to me. One thing he tries to get me to believe is that many things in God are complicated. I must rebuke that lie. I bind every lying Spirit in Jesus’ name and I loose the Spirit of truth and understanding right now. It is written in John 16:13 that the Holy Spirit will guide me into all truth.
Another problem is my mouth. Lord, I repent right now for speaking when I shouldn’t have been and I will study to be quiet, even if it is my business that I want to talk about, so that I will not be snared. In Jesus’ name.
Another problem is many times I feel inadequate to do what I’ve been told to do as a Christian. That is contrary to the Word of God. Right now, I repent for relying on my feelings and I say that I will no longer go by my feelings, but I will trust in You, Lord. For it is written that I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.
Thank You for Your promise, Lord, that You will instruct me and teach me in the way that I should go. Thank You for guiding me. Thank You for Your grace to help me do what I’m supposed to do. Amen.
Apply the Word
This section is to help us respond to His promptings. But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. James 1:22
- The above is based on a true story, because Sally was me. I remember this day. I had gotten to the end of my rope, and channeled my frustration into a determination to overcome. Jesus fought Satan and won by using the Word (Matthew 4:1-10), and so can you! You may need to grab your journal, work through your problems, and taste victory, too!

Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; Philippians 2:12 NKJV
Are you ready to taste victory?
Here’s an example of praying verses to overcome problems we are working through. [Tweet this]
