Who Gives Kudos:



 

  

Sunday School - November 25, 2012

 Affirmation: Since I am in Christ I am in another reality and another life altogether.

 
Step into your destiny. Don't allow the accuser to falsely accuse you. It is your time to break forth. Declare it! - Sandie Freed
 
As you respond by faith to your calling, initially you might feel insecure,vulnerable,fearful, and weak. Most men of God in the Bible who responded to there respective calls initially felt the same way. - Dennis Cramer
 
"God has given to each man a liberal measure of faith." - Romans 12:3
 
There is something NEW God wants to do in each of us.  What God is about to do exists in our future ahead of us in that unexplored, supernatural campground called the Kingdom of God. - Garris Elkins
 
It will not be accomplished through human soulish striving but by a revelation of the Spirit and the activation of our faith to speak in agreement with God's destiny plan for our lives. - Paul Keith Davis
 
Affirmation:  I am renewed in the spirit of my mind: and I put on the new man, which after God has created in righteousness and true holiness.
 
Your starting point for spiritual maturity begins when you desire to do "all that Jesus began both to do and teach." (Acts 1:1) - T. L. Osborn
 
The power of the Lord was the anointing. If Jesus needed it, how much more, then, do we! - Mahesh Chavda
 
"On a certain day, as He was teaching...the power of the Lord was present to heal them." - Luke 5:17
 
 
When we come to a "crisis of faith", as God's vision for us is manifested in our spirit, the vision and purposes of God must be stronger that the fear. The jump is scary, but necessary. Only when you jump can you spread your wings to fly to the heights God created you to soar to. - Matt Sorger
 
There is a letting go of things that hinder so that we can lay hold of things eternal. The price we pay is spiritual hunger. We become spiritually hungry, pursuing the Lord, and are transformed into the habitation of God. - John Belt
 
Affirmation:  I persist in prayer with God until the substance of God's Kingdom is not merely a doctrine but a functional reality in my life.
 
Prayer is an exercise of the spirit, as thought is of the mind. - Mary F. Smith
 
You have resurrection power attached to your prayer life!  You can look to things that are absolutely dead and pray forth eternal LIFE! The same power in us is the same potency God demonstrated when He raised Jesus out of the grave. - Francis Frangipane
 
"His power at work in us who believe. This power in us is the same as the mighty strength which He used when He raised Christ form death...." - Ephesians 1:20
 
When every person in a congregation prays intensely while the pastor is preaching, a miracle happens. - Frank Laubach
 
In one kind of prayer, one "thinks" upon God; in the other, one "beholds" Him. The second is a purer practice. - Michael Molinos

Sunday School - November 18, 2012

Affirmation:

I am not designed to drift - I am designed for destiny.

Those who know their God will be strong and do great exploits. Move beyond your comfort zone into your destiny in Christ Jesus. - John Belt

We experience a moment at some point in our faith whereby we feel overwhelmed by circumstances before us and we have that assurance in Romans 8:31-39 that would set us firmly on His destiny path for us. - Catherine Brown

"Faced with all this, what can we say? If God is for us, who can be against us? Who can condemn God's own people? Who, then, can separate us from the love of Christ?" - Romans 8:31,33,35

Some of us have found ourselves relying on methods that worked in seasons past more than seeking something new from God that requires a NEW equipping for a NEW outpouring. God is doing a NEW work that will require steps of faith into uncharted territory. - Garris Elkins

Walking in the anointing leads us outward, away from ourselves to what the anointing can do for us, to paths of service, ministry, and our destiny. - Mahesh Chavda

Affirmation: The Spirit shows me what I should pray for and makes intercession for me.

Don't make prayer a formula. Let it always be fresh, not mechanical. Let the Spirit lead you each time, how to pray and what to pray for. - Steve Sampson

Our best days are yet to come! God sent us to do a job and we're going to reap because He is the one who sent us to do it! When we launch out at His Word, we're going to catch what we need to catch, even in some instances where we've not labored. - Sean Smith

"As the Father has sent me, even so I send you."

Plead the honor and glory of God's name. Throughout the Bible, this is one of the main appeals that intercessory priestly people made before God. They reminded God of His name and glory and appealed for Him to act on behalf of His name. - James Goll

When the worship leader or pastor steps up to a microphone and says, "It's time to pray," or "It's time to worship," we should know that in that moment the eternal law of sowing and reaping is activated. - Tommy Tenney

Affirmations: The Lord wants me to rooted in Him, not rooted in my idea about Him.

If it's an encounter with God, something will be changed in you. And also, as you behold Him, you can understand and believe for the manifestation of who He is in that particular dimension. For instance, if He shows Himself to you as mighty, you can begin to believe to operate out of His might. - Keith Miller

Our Eternal Lover lures us back regularly into His presence with anticipation and delight. We are glad to waste time with God, for we are pleased with the company. - Richard Foster

"My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God...- Psalm 42:2

Let us realize that the energies we expend in keeping our sins secret are the actual "materials" of which a stronghold is made. The demon you are fighting is using your thoughts to protect his access to your life. - Francis Frangipane

How soon we lose sight of all the miracles He has performed to bring us the victories we have already been given. - Victoria Boyson

Sunday School - November 11, 2012

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.

As we experience and express the spiritual life and ministry that the Lord desires for us, we are changed, since now His life is flowing through us. - Wade Taylor

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 (discipleship). - Oswald Chambers

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

- Matthew 28:19

The enemy has attempted to fence in your destiny. In other words, he has built a fortress in many of our minds using circumstances to build an ungodly belief system. He will also attempt to build a fortress by using our past failures. - Sandie Freed

Can you imagine a major breakout of the glory of the Lord over your life? Be prepared to ascend the hill -- to climb to greater heights and cover more ground for the Kingdom that you ever though possible before. - Keith Miller

Affirmation:

I arise and shine for my Light has come.

The Holy Spirit produces liberty and emancipation from the bondage of the past providing the hope of a glorious future in His rest. The Spirit is currently at work equipping and supplying us the life in freedom of advancing from glory to glory. - Paul Keith Davis

The heart of abiding faith "leans into God," anticipating His voice, looking for His next move. Like Jesus, we are to be able to say, "My food is to do the will of Him who sent me." (John 4:34) - Bill Johnson

We need to be awakened to the power of the Holy Spirit. He is our Helper, Comforter and Teacher. Even more, we need to know Him in His power. We need to be awakened to that surpassing power of what God has already abundantly deposited within us as sons of God. - John Belt

Silence before the Word leads to right hearing and thus also to right speaking of the Word of God at the right time. - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Affirmation:

Jesus calls me to a higher love, to embrace the burning and passionate heart of God.

Can you not give God just one minute? The first minute of each hour? One part of our sixty? Is that too much of a Sabbath rest for you? - Peter Kreeft

The heart of prayer is to connect with God and communicate with Him. Whereas, the heart of intercession is to bear someone else's burden. - T. A. Lewis

"Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ." - Galatians 6:2

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

If I am to experience God's presence, I must engage in more definite and persevering prayer. - Andrew Murray

Sunday School - November 4, 2012

Affirmation: I persist in prayer with God until the substance of God's Kingdom is not merely a doctrine but a functional reality in my life.

The failure of ministries to equip the saints (train believers to disciple other believers) so that every individual part of the Body of Christ is functioning is a primary reason for the overall ineffectiveness of the church. - Rick Joyner

As you respond by faith to your calling, initially you might feel insecure,vulnerable,fearful, and weak. Most men of God in the Bible who responded to there respective calls initially felt the same way. - Dennis Cramer

"God has given to each man a liberal measure of faith." - Romans 12:3

When you discover who you are in Christ, you begin to measure your life and ministry by Jesus' model. You begin to want what He wants for the same reason He wants it. - T. L. Osborn

After waiting on the Lord, there will come a moment when God says "NOW!" This is a "kairos" moment, where the vision God has put in your heart actually starts to take form and become reality. - Matt Sorger

 

Affirmation:

I thank God that he grants me according to the riches of His glory, that I am strengthened with might, by His Spirit, in my inner man.

The more a pastor teaches and preaches on the gifts of the Spirit, the more they will come into manifestation. - Norvel Hayes

The first step toward sanctification is to admit we are not as holy as we would like to appear. Humility, therefore, is the substructure of transformation. It is the essence of all virtues. Like Jesus, we must delight in becoming "lowly in heart." - Francis Frangipane

"trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and view others with contempt" - Luke 18:9

Self-righteous service requires external rewards. It needs to know that people see and appreciate the effort. It seeks human applause -- with proper religious modesty of course. True service rests contented in hiddenness. - Richard Foster

To look anywhere for wisdom except in the leading of the Holy Spirit is to give oneself up to darkness. - William Law

Affirmation: I am renewed in the spirit of my mind: and I put on the new man, which after God has created in righteousness and true holiness.

Prayer and sacrifice work together. Where there is no sacrifice, there will eventually turn out to be no prayer and vice versa. - Thomas Merton

One religious mindset that many Christians can be guilty of -- we are trying to change our old nature (old man) and improve ourselves. We fail to realize that Jesus never came to do that. Jesus crucified the old man so that by faith, we can walk in the new man who is already created in righteousness and holiness. - Kathie Walters

"I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me." - Galatians 2:20

Plead God's relationship to us. We are God's children, and we have the right to appeal to Him on that basis. - Wesley Duewel

Now let us do something beautiful for God. - Mother Teresa
