How to Start Your Day Off Right

Adapted from Wake Up to the Word

Sanctify them [purify, consecrate, separate them for Yourself, make them holy] by the Truth; Your Word is Truth.

First thing when you wake up in the morning, before all the busyness of the day comes flying at you, take a moment with God and refresh your spirit with His strength. This will give you the mental and emotional peace that is the foundation of success. You can write an affirmation that addresses your specific needs, or you can use this one that I wrote:

“God, I am free by the power of Your Word. I believe You have given me the strength to break free from the bonds that have been holding me back from all the beautiful things You have planned for me. I thank You that I am free by the blood of Jesus and the sacrifice that He made on the cross of Calvary. Thank You for making me free through the truth of Your Word and for empowering me with Your power, strength, and wisdom. Help me to be all You want me to be. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

Prayer of the Day: Thank you, God, for the strength to break free from any bondage holding me back from all the wonderful things you have planned for me, amen.
