Affirmation: I dwell in Him and He is in me because He has given me of His Spirit.
God in Christ has given us life. This is a gift that frees. The many little dyings implicit in our move from self-preoccupation and narcissism to caring for others (discipling) are deaths that are really a form of resurrection that gives life to all. - Henri Nouwen
The Holy Spirit was given the task of not simply revealing all that Jesus possesses, but to actually "disclose" it to us. Every declared promise is a transfer of heavenly resources that enable us to fulfill the purpose of our destiny. - Bill Johnson
"He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you." - John 16:15

Put you faith to work, preach the Word and God goes into action. That is the dynamic of the gospel. - Reinhard Bonnke
Affirmation: I begin to thank Him. I name the gifts He has given me, starting with the blessing of life itself.

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
We aren't "trying" to keep the commandments, because the Law Giver is now IN US. And the law becomes a promise to us. The commandments like "Thou shalt not steal," become, "Thank you , Lord , that's a promise, because if we walk in the Spirit we shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh." - Kathie Walters
Affirmation: My treasure is in Jesus. I love Jesus above all else.
The fire on the Altar of Incense (Golden Altar in the Temple) was originally lit from the fire on the Altar of Burnt Offerings, which typified the cross. It does require sacrifice to pray. We must give up our self-life. The Lord is not just after a few minutes of our day -- He wants every thought taken captive and brought into obedience to Him. - Rick Joyner

"If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God." - 1 Peter 4:11

Godly people are called to bold, daring, fear-overcoming, breathtaking and impossible actions in order to accomplish the vision God has given to them. - Barbara Yoder

Affirmation: I realize that I am put here to do the will of God on earth as it is in Heaven.
When we allow sickness, torment, and poverty to be thought of as the God-ordained tools He uses to make us more like Jesus, we have participated in a very shameful act. To do so one must completely disregard the life of Christ and the purpose of the cross. - Bill Johnson
The Christian must bear the burden of a brother. He must suffer and endure the brother. It is only when he is a burden that another person is really a brother and not merely an object to be manipulated. The burden of men was so heavy for God Himself that He had to endure the Cross. - Dietrich Bonhoeffer
"Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ." - Galatians 6:2
When God gives us less than we desire, it is not because He is teaching us poverty; He is teaching us thankfulness. - Francis Frangipane

Jesus says, "And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one." (Mat. 6:13)
This does not mean that God might steer us toward temptation against our wills. It means that we are to ask God for wisdom to stop making bad decisions so we won't put ourselves into situations that will cause us to compromise our relationship with Him. - Myles Munroe
You cannot retire too much from the mindless chatter of the world. You don't need much time to tell God that you love Him! Lift your heart to Him. Worship Him in the depths of your spirit. - Francois Fenelon
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.
You must constantly seek to understand what God wants you to become (your destiny). - Matthew 7:7 - Steve Munsey
Intimidated believers lose their authority in the spirit by default; consequently, their gift -- God's ability in them -- lies asleep and inactive. Though it is present, it is not in operation. - John Bevere

In God's Kingdom, you do not rely upon your own understanding but allow the Spirit of God to reveal hidden meanings that will cause you to know God and His destined purposes.

This will cause you to see God's solution opposed to your own. - Chuck Pierce
Affirmation: I mind the things of the spirit and do not walk after the flesh.

Prayer permeates the whole personality. It becomes like our breath or our blood, which moves throughout the entire body. Prayer develops a deep rhythm inside us. - Richard Foster
Christ will give me grace to pray as I should. Prayer is incense that I burn before God. I pray, expecting an answer. - Andrew Murray

Affirmation: The growth of my faith is not like the growth of natural things that have built-in limitations.
A man's darkest hour is not when he commits a dishonest or dishonorable act. It happens when he refuses the invitation from the Lord to lay aside the desire of the world and come into the King's chamber for fellowship. All of heaven grieves when God's call is taken for granted. - John Bevere

Winter has passed. Rise up and come away! Amen and Amen. - T. A. Lewis
People who value performance think that what they do for God determines how much He loves them and how much He should do for them. Driven by performance, they become legalistic and impatient with others who are not performance oriented. - Alice Smith
As a father cares for his child, so our Father in Heaven cares for us. As we reflect the Father's heart, we will have that same care and love for those who surround us. When we take ownership of the family of God there is another measure of grace that is released in our hearts to DISCIPLE and help others to be who they are in Christ. - John Belt
