From now on, you must not be fearful. Fear is faith polluted. Fear is faith in the enemy. Faith is trust in God. When you fear, you are saying to God that the enemy has more power than He has.
Whenever we are truly, deeply in love with someone we shouldn't feel fear. There is no fear in love - only passion, understanding, and kindness.
The Lord will keep me from all harm - He will watch over my going and coming both now and forevermore, in Jesus' name.
No evil shall befall me and my household, neither shall any plague come near our dwelling, in Jesus' name.
One benefit of prayer in the morning is your mind is clear, your spirit is alert, you are still at peace and you are not troubled by the issues of the day. You give God your first fruit, the best of your morning and the best of your day when you come before Him in the morning.
I receive the baton of favor and unimaginable breakthroughs during 2015, in Jesus name.
My expectation will not be cut off in 2015; I will experience what I am expecting from God, in Jesus name.
Twenty-years later I found out that it was closing. This once-proud institution was now meeting in their Fellowship Hall, unable to pay to clean or heat the sanctuary.
There is always a test before a testimony and a fight before any victory. Victory is sure for every Christian believer who will have faith in God. So, the issue is how to maintain your faith till you have your testimony. Many people have given up at the verge of their turnaround. But you can stand strong till you get your answered prayer.
Gracious God, I acknowledge that You are worthy of all honor, glory and praise. I am thankful for the victorious work of Your Son, Jesus Christ at Calvary for me. I appropriate His victory for myself now as I willingly surrender every area of my life to Your will.
Thank you for the forgiveness and righteousness that has been given to me as Your adopted child. I trust in Your protection and provision daily. I know that your love for me never ceases.
Isaiah 53:5 He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.
Prayer is a channel of communication with God and for you to effectively communicate with Him, you need to identify who He is to you. If you see God as a task master you will relate and talk to Him as a hard boss.
We thank God for the privilege of seeing 2014 and pray we will finish well, in Jesus' name! Let us spend day and night this year thanking and praising God for His faithfulness and for what He has in store for us.
I am walking in perfect health today; I am filled with joy today; I am prosperous and successful today; my dreams are colorful, my visions are clear, and my goals are gigantic, and I am blessed, in Jesus name. My steps are ordered by the Lord (Psalm 37:23).
When a person is bound or oppressed, he does things that are beyond human reasoning and plays the fool beyond his or her control. Notice, I did not say possessed. This is because a Christian cannot be possessed--he or she can only be demonized or oppressed. For a Christian to be possessed, he or she ceases to be a Christian, because the demonic forces have completely taken over his or her spirit being. This has to occur willingly. Only an unbeliever whose spirit is defenseless and open to occupation can be possessed.
Do you get it? WE are God's new address! He works IN us, WITH us, and THROUGH us to advance His Kingdom to the benefit of ALL people because He's a loving Father.
Do not judge people. You are not perfect yourself. If you need to ask God to lead you to another church, if you feel that your pastor has failed you then ask for a meeting. Discuss the matter with your pastor and make sure you are at peace.
Keeping me and all that concerns me in perfect peace that surpasses all understanding
Hearing me in the day of trouble and sending me help from your holy sanctuary
Sending your angels to take charge and keep me in all my ways
It is important to know the patterns of behavior that provide you with the evidence of demonic oppression. There are stages through which satanic oppressions or possessions manifest. When you begin to observe the signs, it will help you identify what is going on.
One of the greatest challenges to finishing strong is idolatry. It is so important that John concluded his first letter with “Little children, keep yourself from idols…” (I John 5:21). In his book Keep Yourself From Idols, Bible teacher David Alsobrook defines idolatry by distinguishing between the active and passive participants of idol worship: “Idolizer or idolater? An ‘idolizer’ is someone who has a particular idol but whose life is not wholly given to idols. Such a person whose life is full of idols is properly called an ‘idolater’ and has no inheritance in the kingdom of God.”
Why is your bed strategic? Because the place where you sleep is a site of divine renewal or satanic regression. You could be either made or marred on your bed. Lying on your bed in the solemnity of day or the serenity of night, you can initiate, maintain, and sustain fruitful thinking that will change your life. Great thoughts of glorious happenings could be inspired on your bed as you thoughtfully guard your hearts in deep search of divine mysteries: “There is a spirit in man, the inspiration of the Lord giveth them understanding,” Job 32:8.
Each day as we step outside, we are surrounded by people wearing masks. There's the woman who, as a little girl, was never validated by her daddy. So, she jumps from man to man hoping one day to meet her knight in shining armor. There is the little boy trapped within a big, burly man’s body who’s been dragging around with him all the years of loneliness, the pain of not measuring up, even trying to fill his God-shaped void with a woman. Having repeatedly failed, he's tried drinking, porn, drugs, big-boy toys--in some cases, the ministry.
