We are working with God to determine the future! Certain things will happen in history if we pray rightly. We are to change the world by prayer. - Richard Foster

He is truly great, who is great in the love of God. He is truly learned, who renounces his own will for the will of God. - Thomas a Kempis

"I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ...that I may win Christ." - Philippians 3:8

All throughout Scripture, God invites us to experience Him as we read the stories of His encounters with past saints. He invites us to "taste and see," responding to the invitation to know and be known by Him. - Bill Johnson

The purpose of revelation is restoration, the renewal in us of that likeness to God which man lost by sin. - Stephen Neill

Affirmation: My vision protects me from being misguided by good alternatives - It allows me to say no to lesser prospects, even if there are certain benefits to them.

A life without vision is a life that is destined to be a life without purpose. We must pursue a revelation of our God-given destiny. - John Belt

If you touch God, you can cause other people to touch Him also; but if you touch only the soul, you cause people to touch only you. - Watchman Nee

Importunate prayer is a mighty movement of the soul toward God. It is a passion of soul. It is the ability to hold on, press on, wait, and not give up. - E. M. Bounds

"Many scolded him and told him to be quiet. But he shouted even more loudly, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" - Mark 10:48

Faith is able to move mountains, and it will move every on that stands in its way. True faith makes the road; it does not follow one. That is why true faith is true freedom; no shackle can be put on it. - Rick Joyner

I love to be alone in my cottage where I can spend much time in prayer. - David Brainerd

Affirmation: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Man needs to be saved from his own wisdom as much as from his own righteousness, for they produce one and the same corruption. - William Law

Jesus said to Peter -- "Feed My sheep." You have to be the nourishment for other souls until they learn to feed on God. We owe it to God to be our best for His lambs and His sheep as well as for Himself. - Oswald Chambers

"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations"...

- Matthew 28:19

The transition from the earthly to the heavenly, from the natural to the life of faith, is a difficult passage - you believe that heaven can do what no one else can do. - T. Austin-Sparks

Faith is an active creative force. - J. H. Oldham

Affirmation: I live and walk in the spirit.

Many people profess faith in God, yet they do not know Him. The reason is obvious - such a relationship costs more than most people are wiling to pay. - Shawn Bolz

Put you faith to work, preach the Word and God goes into action. That is the dynamic of the gospel. - Reinhard Bonnke

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. - Psalm 23:1

The word "want" in the 23rd Psalm carries a broader meaning than simply not lacking anything. It also carries the idea of being utterly contented in the Good Shepherd's care and consequently not craving or desiring anything more. - Phillip Keller


Affirmation: There are some good people in my life who are "bad" for me because they're distracting me from the vision God has put in my heart.

Sometimes we come to church and act is if we are afraid of disturbing God from His celestial slumber. We speak in hushed tones and express our rare episodes of praise with the spiritual equivalent of golf claps. - Tommy Tenney

"Shout unto God with the voice of triumph. For the Lord most high is terrible; He is a great King over all the earth." - Psalm 47:1,2

The power of faith can be manifested in your life until men and angels will wonder. - Charles S. Price

Our task in life is to learn to bear God's "beams of love." - William Blake







Just as a new born needs nourishment and care, so do "new babes" in the Lord. God has called His Body not only to preach the gospel, but also to disciple new believers. - Patricia King

Every painful event contains in itself a seed of growth and liberation. - Anthony de Mello

Mood: None, or other

Sunday School - March 20, 2011

Affirmation: When I thank Him I am honoring Him. I am thankful, regardless of what my life seems to be.

Praise is that element of celebration that can transport us into the throne room of God. Once we are in the throne room at His feet, we need to worship and adore Him. As we worship Him in that intimate place, He begins to reveal His glory to us. - Chuck Pierce

What action steps can you begin, right now, to move toward reaching your vision and destiny in Christ? - Steve Munsey

"The most important thing is that I complete my mission, the work that the Lord Jesus gave me." - Acts 20:24

When "crazy love" is upon an individual he will be uninhibited in his expression of faith. Crazy love allows you to stand and flow in the Spirit. - Sean Smith

One who wants fellowship without solitude plunges into the void of words and feelings, and one who seeks solitude without fellowship perishes in the abyss of vanity, self-infatuation, and despair. - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

We think we have to have something great in our life before we can praise the Lord. David praised the Lord day in and day out. - even when things were boring and mundane. - Myles Munroe

The cry for more is a belittlement of what we must be and do and undermines the grace and providence of God in our lives. - Henri Nouwen

Affirmation: I dwell in Him and He is in me because He has given me of His Spirit.

Thank God, "It is finished", and I know that because it is finished , everything is mine -- things in heaven, things on earth, things under the earth. Jesus Christ is all power over all. He is in all. He is through all. Thank God, He is for all. - Smith Wigglesworth

Embrace the value of being a servant. Contrary to the world's view, we need to understand the high honor of servanthood. If you are called to any level of leadership, you especially need to embrace the call of being a servant first. - Che Ahn

"Indeed there are those who are last who will be first, and first who will be last."

- Luke:13:30

A yielded imagination becomes a sanctified imagination; and it's the sanctified imagination that is positioned for visions and dreams. - Bill Johnson

I do not depend on what I can do, but on what the Spirit of the Lord will do through my situation.

Giving thanks in the midst of an adverse situation, a difficulty intended to undermine your faith and destroy you, enables you to take hold of that situation and set it apart to God and His purposes. - Bill Johnson

The prince of this world is also known as the god of this age. The enemy attempts to block heaven's will from being done on Earth through a demonic hierarchy that is positioned between us and the third heaven. - Barbara Yoder

"The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. - 2 Corinthians 4:4

A witness of Jesus Christ is one who knows Him and is interested in introducing Him to others. Any person who says, " I don't need to witness; I just let my life speak,' is self-righteous. - Ros Rinker

The cliche 'charity begins at home' has done more damage than any other in the English language - Trevor Huddleston (English missionary)


Instead of conforming to the image of the world I begin to conform to the image of the reborn Spirit within me which is created in righteousness and true holiness.

Are we prepared to set ourselves apart for the Holy Spirit's ministrations in us? - Oswald Chambers

The most telltale symptom of surrender to slavery is grumbling and complaining. The one who complains has lost the faith; he had already given up in his heart. - RicK Joyner

So do not be foolish but learn what the Lord wants you to do. - Ephesians 5:17

Faith is where you take the biggest spiritual risks in your life, especially within your calling. Exercising faith is fundamentally a risk. Each and every time you "step out" within your call to obey God you take a risk. - Dennis Cramer

In you, Lord Jesus, I place my faith. I contend for the faith that moves mountains and touches the Father's heart. Revive me with miracle working faith. Amen - William J. Seymour (September 1906)


I see beyond my eyes and live for the unseen. My future is not ahead of me - it lies within me.

God has given you a skill or ability the world needs. He has been waiting for your birth. - Myles Munroe

How can you hear God speak, in His soft and tender way, when your hurried thoughts create a whirlwind within? Be quiet, and He will soon be heard. - Francois Fenelon

"For God alone my soul waits in silence; from Him comes my salvation." - Psalm 62:1

The Spirit of God is calling us forth, taking the truths of time and eternity and using them to awaken us out of complacency. If our hunger for intimacy is ever to be satisfied, we must have Him whose affectionate love is far better than the best wine of earthly experiences and possessions. - Mike Bickle

Those who draw water from the wellspring of meditation know that God dwells close to their hearts. - Toyohiko Kagawa (Japanese evangelist)

Affirmation: I am a child of the Most High God, and heir of God, a Joint-heir with Jesus and have the right to enter the holy of holies.

The more you believe and confess that God's favor is on you, the more you will see His favor work for you. - Joseph Prince

Receive His love. Press, and keep pressing into His heart, until you have pressed the image of His invisible nature into the substance of your soul. - John of the Cross

Ask God for the rock to pour out a river of counsel in your life. Imagine rivers of oil - not just a little vial, but rivers. - Keith Miller

What is Christianity but Christ living His resurrected life through the members of His body which is the Church. - William Law

In prayer, fire is the motive power. Religious principles which do not emerge in flame, have neither force nor effect. Fervency is the soul of prayer. - E. M. Bounds

"The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." - James 5:16

He didn't bring us out of Egypt to camp out in the wilderness, but to take us into the promised land of ever-expanding life. - Bill Johnson

Because many are more eager to acquire much learning than to live well they often go astray, and bear little or no fruit. - Thomas a Kempis

Affirmation: As a follower of Jesus I treat everything else as lesser in comparison to Him, the greater.

Our calling is a heavenly calling, unto a heavenly life: not after this life, but NOW. - T. Austin-Sparks

In the process of finding your impact you will find yourself, because nothing defines you as completely as your God-given mission. - Mario Murillo

Jesus said, "In the same way that you, Father, gave me a mission in the world, I give them (my followers) a mission in the world." - John 17:18
