I take my stand on this truth today: I am complete in Christ.
No matter what I face, I have complete sufficiency in him. No matter what I need, I have complete provision in him. No matter what I do, I have complete power in him.
When I feel inadequate, you are the all-sufficient one.
When I feel afraid, you are the God of all mercies.
When I hurt, you are the Father of all comforts.
When I face today's challenges, you are Lord over them all.
So many times, Lord, I feel defeated. My deficits own my thinking. My deficiencies rule my days. I label myself BROKEN. INCOMPLETE. Yet you've declared me complete in Christ, and on that reality I take my stand.
Nothing is lacking. No blessing is missing. No need is omitted in your perfect design of me. The person I was before I met Christ is not who I am today. Christ is in me, and I am in him forever. I am a new creation, made perfect and whole. Lord, even my imperfections are only windows for your grace to shine more brightly through me.
I will not wait for other people to complete me – with or without their apologies or approval, I am whole and complete in You. I will not wait for an answered prayer to complete me – I already have all I need in You.
By faith, I rise up to my full stature in Christ.
By faith, I refuse to slink beneath my identity or slouch beneath my dignity.
By faith, I refute the devil's lies that I am damaged goods or beyond repair.
By faith I can do all things in Christ because I have all things in Christ and I am all things in Christ. He is my treasure, my fortress, my shield, my success, and my all in all.
That is my hope today, dear Lord. That is my declared intention. Grow and increase this faith in me, I pray,
As His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, (2 Peter 1:2)
Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God, (2 Corinthians 3:5)
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. (2 Corinthians 9:8)
But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God--and righteousness and sanctification and redemption-- that, as it is written, "He who glories, let him glory in the LORD." (1 Corinthians 1:30, 31)
