In honor of Black History- Quote: “I wasn’t concerned about the hardships because I always felt I was doing what I had to do, what I wanted to do, and what I was destined to do.” —Katherine Dunham
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
Today God is first and we and serve a mighty God! Today God is first and I praise him and believe by faith that he won’t fail. Today God is first and I come against the spirit of worry; instead I choose to trust God. Today God is first and I decree and declare that I shall live and not die. Today God is first and I believe what his word says; “I am the head and not the tail.” Today God is first and I rebuke every lie of the evil one! Today God is first and by the power of the Holy Spirit that is within me; I take back my power, joy, peace, and everything the devil thought he stole from me. Today God is first and I will stand on his Holy word and decree and declare that greater is coming! Today God is first and I believe that my family is safe, healed, and saved in Jesus name. Today God is First and I’m walking by faith and not by sight! Today God is first and victory is mine! Today God is first and I speak unity, love, and forgiveness in the atmosphere. Today God is First and I give him praise to him for every mountain, trial, and tribulation; because I know that it’s all working out for my good. Today God is first and I refuse to accept anything but the very best. Today God is first and I will pause to give thanks and reflect over my life…I know God has been good to me! Today God is first and I will remind myself that I am not my past. But I am who God says I am; a child of the most high King! Today God is first and I can do all things with him who strengthens me. Today God is First and I am filled with courage and all the boldness that is needed to for fill my purpose. Today God is first and I’m expecting his favor everywhere I place my feet. Today God is first and I will shout and tell the world that he’s been better to me than I could ever be to myself. Today God is first and he’s worthy to be praised! Today is first and he is Lord in my life!
