I had the task this week of packing up the office which Rob held for many years. Going through books, finding cards he received, and books that he marked up with notes. I came across a handwritten note and was so touched by it that I thought I would share. For those of you who knew him, or heard his words, will know that he truly fulfilled this letter that he wrote. I am proud to share a promise made and a promise kept.
Heavenly Father, I come before you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. I make a decision this day, that when I preach your word I will preach it the way you have showed me, I will preach your word and only your word without reservation. I believe that what I preach comes to pass in the name of Jesus, I will act on what I preach and live what I preach.
I believe in the name of the Lord Jesus that your word will always come out of my mouth with power and boldness and that your anointing is always there. I also believe that you are my ability in all circumstances and you will always put me over.
I thank you Father because I preach your word not in man’s wisdom but in the power of God and give you all the glory.
I look at you Father and your word in the name of Jesus and not on situations or circumstances. Jesus Christ is the High Priest of my confession and I will hold fast to my confession of faith in your word. Father, I promise to abide by this promise which I have promised unto you in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
