{ Day 136 }

Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him; I will surely defend my ways to his face. Indeed, this will turn out for my deliverance, for no godless man would dare come before him! —Job 13:15-16

I speak this confession to God when I face pain and pressure: "I am loved, and I love You; therefore, I am successful. I love You even when my love is only in seed form and is still immature. Even though my love is weak, the position of my soul is to be a lover." The pain of pressure drives our souls into the secret place. When circumstances are difficult, many individuals hold to their confession that the circumstances will improve in a certain way. But a higher confession is this: I am loved, and I am a lover; therefore, I am successful. Pain will drive you to the only place of comfort—to that confession—the confession that delivers our hearts from despair.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Father, with Mike Bickle, help me to confess daily: "I am loved, and I love You. Even though my love is weak, it is my position and desire to be a lover of You. Therefore my life is a success."

One reason why God allows pressure is because it
refocuses our souls on reality.
