God is Giving Me


Avoiding evil and injustice by applying past patterns of God's providence to presently unfolding events

Provident care of futurity; foreknowledge accompanied with prudence in guarding against evil.

Webster's, 1st ed., 1828

God's character is unchanging. He deals with man according to His Covenant.

I have foresight because I am working for the Kingdom of God. God has made enough of His plan known to me to enable me to plan successfully.

I am exercising dominion over the whole earth, and thus my perspective is global.

Because I judge righteously, and have spiritual discernment, I anticipate the acts of others.

Because my vision is Theo-centric, my perspective is not limited to my wing-span.

I am future-oriented.

I am becoming more and more farsighted.

My parents wanted me to be prudent, and my judicious life is an honor to their desires.

My friends know me to be careful, because I have learned from the past and can apply those lessons to the future.

My family sees me becoming more and more sagacious.

My parents are proud of my sapient life.

My circumspect habits are an asset to my community.

Those I work with are delighted that I am becoming more and more visionary.

I am not afraid to be looking ahead in a culture that is looking only at itself.

People around me can depend on me to anticipate future conditions.

The Spirit empowers me to be prescient.

I often think about how I can be prepared for the unpredictable.

My spirit reverberates with readiness.

These words resonate in my being; my study of my Sovereign God and His Word makes them a part of my life

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
-- Romans 8:28-29

I have remembered Thy Name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept Thy Law.
-- Psalm 119:55

This isn't that New Age "Positive Thinking" stuff, is it??
