Daily Devotional – 12/21/15 “Acceptance Speech”

Oh my God! I cannot believe it! To God who is the head of my life, to family and friends and all those who support me; I am truly grateful to be standing here today. Wow! I’m in amazement as I stand here to give my acceptance speech.

What am I accepting? Chile, I am accepting back everything the enemy has ever taken from me. I am rehearsing my acceptance speech for the time that is about to come when I’ll get everything I’ve prayed for. I’m practicing my acceptance speech for when sickness is cured. I’m putting the final touches on my acceptance speech for when my deliverance happens. I’m in the mirror daily, preparing my acceptance speech for the new house that I’ve yet to have built and for the debt that’s about to be erased. I’m reviewing my acceptance speech for the doors that are about to open in my favor. I’m getting ready for the places my talents are about to take me. Oh, I’m anticipating the great things that God is about to do; so I’m getting my acceptance speech together. I’m making sure my throat is ready for the shout of praise that will happen and I’m getting my feet ready for the dance that’s about to come forth. Oh, I’m standing on God’s promise and He’s about to loose everything the naysayers thought they could keep of mine. It don’t matter about what I wear, the acceptance speech is the most valuable part.

What about you? Have you started on your acceptance speech yet? You know for the blessing that’s headed in your direction, for that breakthrough that’s peeking in, for the deliverance that has your name on, for that healing that’s about to be manifested in you and for the peace you’re about to receive. Have you started yet? Have you gotten the words together for your acceptance speech yet because the enemy is about to give you back everything he has taken. Are you ready? God is about to loose chains of circumstance, break down the walls of bondage, pluck up the negative seeds that were planted in your name and snatch out sorrow. Do you have your speech prepared? I don’t know about you but I’ve been practicing mine and I’m ready for the victory party! I don’t know about you but my speech is ready, I’m simply waiting on God to say go! I don’t know about you but the enemy has had my stuff way too long and I’m about to get it back. What about you? Have you written your acceptance speech yet?

“The wicked band together against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death But the LORD has become my fortress, and my God the rock in whom I take refuge.” Psalm 94:21-22
