Listen with your spirit to the Word of God in
Deuteronomy 33:25b. “Your strength will equal your days.”
2 Corinthians 13:4 “Jesus was crucified in weakness, yet He lives by God’s power. Likewise, we are weak in Him, yet by God’s power we will live with Him to serve you.”
Beloved one, by your Father’s strength you have life.
I bless you with strength in your spirit for each day. I bless you with waking up every morning knowing that the living God is sustaining, strengthening, and renewing your spirit, soul, and body for the opportunities and problems that he sets before you today. I bless you with knowing that your Father’s power provides everything you need today for being who you are called to be and doing acts of obedience to him that he appoints for you to do in Jesus’ name. I bless you with the assurance of inner quiet, security, and strength for each day for as long as God chooses your lifetime to be. I bless you with assurance of his help and presence in all the majesty of his glorious detail with which he has ordained your days. I bless you with a constant and growing sense of his presence with you for his purposes and his pleasure.
By your Father’s promise you have life. Beloved one, listen with your spirit to God’s Word in Psalm 119:50. “My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.” Your Father renews your heart and your spirit with his promises. I bless you with recalling the many times that your Father has been with you, has loved you, has taken care of you, has blessed you. I bless you with holding on to promises that he is making to you from his Word and by his Spirit. I bless you with deep understanding that his words are your very life. I bless you with knowing that your faithful Father is watching over his purposes that await a future time for fulfillment. I bless you with enjoying life, being renewed, refreshed, and restored in your relationship with God and his faithfulness expressed in his Word.
By your Father’s life you have life. Beloved one, listen with your spirit to God’s Word in John 5:26. “For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself.” Your Father has life, and he has given his Son life in himself. I bless you with the life that Jesus has in you. I bless you with knowing the life of your Father and of his Son living in you and enlarging your spirit to know him better and love him more. I bless you with knowing that you are alive and well and awake and fully present to life today by the power of his Holy Spirit.
By the power of the Living One you have life. Beloved one, listen with your spirit to God’s Word in John 11:25. “Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me will live...’ ” I bless you with believing that the Living One lives in you as your life for today. I bless you with appropriating with your spirit the full measure of the life of Jesus within you for the here-and-now.
By the light of Jesus you have life. Listen again with your spirit to John 1:4. “In Him was life, and that life was the light of men.” I bless you with light that comes from the life of Jesus living in you and through you. I bless you with his life that lights your way, your relationships, your time, your decisions.
By the words of Jesus you have life. Beloved one, listen to John 6:63. “The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life.” I bless your spirit with hearing and knowing the words that Jesus speaks to you. I bless you with meeting him daily spirit-to-Spirit. I bless you with not doing anything by mere human effort. I bless you with being energized with the life of eternity upon all that you are, and think, and do.
Be blessed in the name of Jesus who is your life.
