You will show me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
—Psalm 16:11 (NKJV)
Jesus, you have plans for me—plans that give hope! No matter what happens, I rest in the peace of your unfailing love. You have shown me the path of life and lavished me with your abundant grace. I trust in your unconditional love that settles and guards my heart. I trust your goodness. I trust your Word. You are my loving Abba Father, my Redeemer—my Healer—my Protector—and my Deliverer. I believe and declare I am free!
Fear, you have been crucified with Christ! Doubt, you have no place in my mind! It is not I who live but Christ who lives in me! And I live my life by faith in the Son of God, who gave His life for me. Each moment, Jesus, is your breath filling me with hope and promise and purpose. Each day is your assurance that greater is your power within me than any evil which tries to come against me.
Lord, your right hand is a place of honor. And there is where you invite me to rest in you. I rest in who I am in you. Your acceptance and mercy encompass me. You pour into my life your riches in glory. And you pour and pour. And I receive and receive. I am whole. I lack nothing. I have everything. What you have given me is a wonderful inheritance!
I am no longer my own. You indwell me. You call me redeemed and new. You call me righteous. You call me chosen. You call me your child. I am free to walk by faith and not by sight. I am free to trust the authority you died to give me. I am free to love as I have been loved by you. No longer do I question your love for me! I receive what you gave your life for me to own! You are my fullness of joy—my strength and power and pleasure forevermore!
