Weekly Declaration

As believers, we are God’s children. A child of God will reflect His character. Each week, we focus on one scripture while highlighting a declaration (Who God is) and affirmation (Who we are as believers).

This week’s scripture is:

27 When the time came for Tamar to give birth, it was discovered that she was carrying twins. 28 While she was in labor, one of the babies reached out his hand. The midwife grabbed it and tied a scarlet string around the child’s wrist, announcing, “This one came out first.” 29 But then he pulled back his hand, and out came his brother! “What!” the midwife exclaimed. “How did you break out first?” So he was named Perez. 30 Then the baby with the scarlet string on his wrist was born, and he was named Zerah.

Genesis 38:27-30 NLT

Declaration

God’s plan cannot be set aside.

Affirmation

I will yield to God’s plan.

God has a plan for everyone. And yet oftentimes we feel as though we already know what’s going on. But in reality, many situations and seasons we encounter are well beyond our capacity. God sees the end. All we can see is right now. That’s why we have to yield to God’s plan. Following His instructions in the now makes for a fruitful future.

A Prayer Starter…
Heavenly Father, You are all knowing. You see the end and it’s a good ending. Lord, your plan is far beyond what I could ever imagine and sometimes I need help yielding to Your will. Continue to lead me and protect me as I follow your instructions… In Jesus’ name. Amen
