I Will He Said!

IDOK DEVOTION FOR WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 30, 2008


I am borrowing from Beth (Moore) again today; from the work book for her study, STEPPING UP. I want to give you the opportunity to see this beautiful exercise she led us to do. She wrote:
Read Romans 8:28-39 and let God tell you what He’ll do for you. Make this exercise personal by putting your name in the top blank and filling in the remainder with various promises God makes you in the portion from Romans. Turn each into an “I will” statement from God to you. I’ll fill in the first one so you’ll get the idea.
28 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.
29 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.
30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.
31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.
34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written:
“ For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”
37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,
39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Now for the rest of the exercise found in Stepping Up, page 60. (Beth Moore, A Life Way Publication)

As I did this exercise in my work book, will you please take a piece of paper and pen and do one for you too? I think it will bless you so much!!
One of my favorite I Wills on my list is this: “I will let nothing separate you from Me. Love, Daddy God.
Father, this is more wonderful than I could have imagined and I pray Holy Spirit that You will encourage and help each IDOK to complete this exercise. Speak to each one in the way each needs to hear from You. Do for them DADDY and even more what You have just done for me. Thank You. You are so gracious to draw us like this to You. Keep us moving closer and closer. And for these listed here, do that too. Draw them closer, build their faith, heal their bodies, emotions and spirits. Protect our IDOK Troops today; keep them safe in all ways, build them up in faith, keep their muscles strong and their emotions healthy and bring them home to family and friends at the appointed time. And Father, we pray for a successful conclusion to this war; we pray for Peace for Israel; for Repentance for America; for the Election of Your Choice for President; and for the revival of Your Church for Jesus sake. Amen and amen.
