Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you," declares Yahweh— Jeremiah 1:8 (Lexham English Bible)
Dearest Abba, Father, I thank You that You are my Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer. I recognize that everything I have is from You. I gladly surrender all at Your feet for Your glory. I thank You that it will please You to restore me at Your perfect time. Father, I am in great distress. Please protect me from my enemies who are too strong for me. In worldly sense, I don’t stand a chance. However, I praise You and take comfort in this fact that You have ultimate authority over everything and all situations I face are allowed by You to bring about Your purpose. Therefore, I will not be afraid nor dismayed. What can man do to me? The battle I am facing is not mine but Yours. Thank You that You are my awesome protector and provider. I put my hope in You because You are a God of mercy and redemption. You will prove Yourself strong on my behalf when I confess my weakness and put my confidence in You. You won’t let me be ashamed before those who wait to see my fall. Hide me under the shadow of Your wings from the wicked, unjust, and cruel people who oppress me. Keep my feet from falling. Break down every stronghold that the evil one has erected around me. Make me prosper and flourish under Your divine provision of means and wisdom and strength. Through the grace of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.
