30 Days of Identity: I Have been Delivered from Darkness
Read this 60 Second devotion. Each day, based on our verse of the day, we will add one new label to our Christian identity. At the end of 30 Days, we will have a life affirming, identity forming declaration. This is life changing stuff! --- Day 20
The Word - "He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.." Colossians 1:13-14 ESV
A Thought - "... delivered from the domain of darkness..." That is significant. It tells us that we were once citizens of the Kingdom of Darkness. It follows, then, that anyone that is not in God's Kingdom remains in the Kingdom of Darkness. Their citizenship explains their behavior. What if we put less emphasis on trying to force people that reside in the Kingdom of Darkness to act like citizens of God's Kingdom and put more emphasis on helping them change Kingdoms?
My Prayer of Declaration - Lord, because of You, I am a New Creation, I am Forgiven, I am Reconciled to God, I am Free, I am Loved, I am complete, I am a citizen of Heaven, I am God's Child, I am Strong, I am not afraid, I am God's Masterpiece, His Ambassador, His Witness and He Welcomes me. I am a Servant of God (just like Jesus), I am more than a Conqueror, I am Holy, I am becoming more like Jesus every day and I have been delivered from darkness! - All blessing, honor, glory, power and praise are Yours, Amen.
Touch the Hem of Jesus' Robe and transform your life, 60 seconds at a time. - Scott
