Prayerfully Speaking

Hope from the Truths of God's Word

Regardless of the flaws…

The following is a devotion from one of my favorite writers, Frances J. Roberts. I treasure her book – Come Away My Beloved.  Each devotion is written as if God is speaking directly to the reader.  God used this devotion to speak directly to the empty places in my heart today.  These words satisfy my soul. I pray that they will help you as well.

I Will Bring the Victory

Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.  1 Corinthians 15:57

O My child, have I ever failed you? Have I ever turned My back on you, or forsaken you? Have I not been your refuge and strong defense?

I have protected you and kept you in sickness and in health.  Yes, I am with you to help you now.  Fear not.  My purposes will be fulfilled in spite of your weaknesses, if in your need you rely on My strength.

My will shall be done regardless of the flaws in your life, if you count on the power of My righteousness. I do not work only in cases where there are no obstacles; but I glory in overruling the prevailing circumstances, and I take pleasure in bringing victories in those places where no victory is anywhere in sight.

Count on My coming. Know that whenever faith brings Me on the scene, everything is changed. Darkness is turned to light.  Grief is turned to joy.  Sickness to health.  Poverty to My sufficient supply.  Doubt to faith. Anxiety to trust.

No negative force can occupy the same place as My Spirit. When My Spirit comes in, all these things must go.  Yes, they shall go!

Ask for the victory.  I will come and bring it.  Don’t look for the victory – look for Me, and you will see the victory that I will bring with me.  After I have come, you shall behold the miracles I will do.
