Separating The Darkness - Part One, A Prayer Of Supplication And Declaration
Lord, You are my restoration and my portion in all things. You restore every waste place in my life and make them beautiful reflections of who You are. Nothing is out of reach of Your redeeming and restoring love.
Today I need Your light in the midst of my dark places…in the midst of every area in need of restoration. I invite you to come and do whatever it takes…and impart whatever I need to reflect who You are in me. I acknowledge the value You have placed on me and agree with You that I am indeed treasure in an earthen vessel. Hover over my earthen vessel as you hovered over the earth and make all things new. I close my eyes and I can see You hovering over me. I can feel the breath of Your Spirit moving across me and into the recesses of my mind. Touch every hidden subconscious thought which does not line up with Your Word and what You have declared me to be.
As I sit in Your presence I will absorb every portion of Your being. I will absorb every truth and Word you speak to me. Come and penetrate the deepest places of my heart and mind. Penetrate to the very internal subconscious regions of my thinking from whence actions come. . In Your presence I am renewed…I am restored. Right now…this very moment…I declare that darkness is fleeing and Your light has come for Your mercies are new every morning…every moment. Your grace is all sufficient for the restoration of my entire being.
You inject me with pure light through the Living Word. Every Word I read and every Word You speak is transferring me in to a new season of life and sonship. One by one each hindrance is falling away for the dominos have been pushed. I declare that I am entering a new season of reformation and change.
Therefore, expose every work of the enemy and You will bring destruction to the enemy’s plans of darkness (Deuteronomy 34:27). I posture myself in Your presence and in Your Word. As I do this, come and hover over me. Let me hear Your breath inhale the darkness and exhale the light. I receive Your all sufficient grace and mercy. With faith and expectancy I breathe You in.
Lord, what seems like small steps to me has brought You joy. Forgive me for being so hard on myself when You are so pleased. What I cannot see, You can. You already see the victory. You already see and call me a victor. Time is of no matter to You. Teach me to love the process and enjoy going through it with You. Give me Your perspective on process and time. How I want Your heart in reference to patience and time.
I will grab a hold of Your word for it is truth and life to me. It is Light. I receive wisdom to walk as a king and priest…to function as Your ambassador with full authority and anointing. I agree with You and declare that my life is a place of Eden in this earth and an oasis for those in need. I am fruitful and I do multiply according to Your promise…according to Your Word. Perfect order is coming to my life and to my way of thinking. My mind is renewed in You by the power of Your Word and I am clothed in Your righteousness.
Lord, You have clothed me in Your righteousness and I am seated with You far above all hindering foes and powers of destruction. You are my strength…my Strong tower…my ever flowing fountain of Life and Light. I see You for You are with me and in me. I am Your watered garden, an Eden of abundant fruit and provision to the world around me.
I look at my life and actions sometimes and wonder how I can be made in Your image. Yet, You say I am. Therefore; I choose to agree with You and thereby, enable myself to walk in all You say I can and will. I am Your representative in and on Earth. I am a living example of Your image to those around me…an oasis to the needy and hurting. My focus is on You and You alone.
I tell my heart to be of good courage and to have faith. I break agreement with any lie to the contrary, lies forming a smoke screen aimed at fooling me in to believing otherwise. I break all covenants with guilt and shame. Instead, I embrace conviction by Holy Spirit and receive the freedom and liberty given to me by the blood of Christ.
Stir my heart to remember all the good things You have accomplished in and through me. This is not pride, but it is Your testimony in my life and has power to engender faith, hope and love. Stir me to remember all the times I have overcome by faith and endured until times of victory and I will be encouraged. Yes, stir me to remember who I am in You.
For, when I abdicate who You say I am, not only do I loose, but all those around me loose. I take the dominion You gave Your life for and I choose to walk in it by faith. I tell shame and guilt to flee, for I am walking in complete grace and forgiveness. Today is a new day of light and revelation. There is no time to waste on petty self-incriminations. I choose to forgive and let all inadequacies fall by the wayside as I embrace the Light of Your Word. I am Your representative. I am Your plan. Thank you for choosing me.
Lord, forgive me for every time I have gotten ahead of Your timing—for not building one day at a time because of fear or worry. When I do this I am hard on myself and feel I have failed in some way. Teach me to rely on the conviction of Holy Spirit with complete trust in the fact that Your kindness leads to repentance. Wash me with the cleansing power of Your Word each and every time I read or hear it. Water ever seed of Eden within my heart and enable me to flourish in practical ways into the oasis you say I am.
Continue to separate all darkness…all dark thoughts of failure and bathe me in Your light. Teach me to move with Your flow in order for things in my life to function properly according to Your purpose. Every house needs the right foundation. Separating light from darkness in my life builds a good foundation on which to operate from. Substance, the fulfillment of dreams and a confident heart become my portions.
Lord, once again I give You the hidden places of my heart where insecurities abound. I give them to You, and I move on. I can see the Jordan and I know the ark of Your presence in my life will move me across on dry ground. I will agree with You and say, “I am Your living example.” I ride with you and call You, Abba Father. Amen
