Who Gives Kudos:



Sunday School - December 30, 2012

 Affirmation:  Wherever I go, and to wherever my influence extends, I bring the Kingdom of God into that place.

Under the unction and anointing of the Holy Spirit there comes a divine release as you are propelled forward into God's plan and destiny. As you take a "leap of faith" out of the nest of comfort and familiarity, you launch out into the deep. --- Am I willing to leave behind everything? - Matt Sorger
Are you ready? God has need of you. It is time to become a walking God-encounter for others. Stir up your faith, soak in His peace, and release it to your neighborhood as situations present themselves. Inhale His love and exhale His peace, for what you allow Him to do in you, He will release through you. - Julia Loren
"The river of God is full of water; thou providest their grain, for so thou has prepared it. Thou waterest its ridges abundantly, settling its ridges, softening it with showers, and blessing its growth."  - Psalm 65:9,10
God will fill your river! Tell yourself that your river is full!. Lift your hands and cry out, "Lord, soak me!" When He soaks you with His rain, you'll see Him do things for you that you could never do for yourself.  Your paths will drip with abundance and His rain will drop on the pastures of the wilderness in your life, empowering you to spring forth, bud, blossom and bring forth much fruit to the glory of the Kingdom. (v.11) - Keith Miller
You have been prepared for a harvest, gathered in by arms of compassion. You have been comforted by the Lord so you may disciple others, loving them to life. - Patricia King
Affirmation:  I present my body as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is my reasonable service. 
We are called to walk as sons of God to bring the atmosphere of the Kingdom with us wherever we go. Settling for anything less will almost be boring to us, as we learn the exhilarating lifestyle to partner with God in our dreams to transform the culture around us for Jesus. - Munday Martin
The best thing we can do is find that place with Him where we are living moment to moment in sensitivity to the Holy Spirit.  - John Belt
"There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus." Romans 3:22-24
When the enemy accuses you, remember Romans 3:24. This verse gives you the perfect defense against his words that seemingly prove your guilt. You are justified freely by the Blood of Jesus Christ that has redeemed you! Even the enemy knows the truth, but he wants to hurt you through guilt, grief and his deceptions. God's redemption does not have an expiration date. - K. Pelton
We dwell on the Healer, Jesus, and give Him glory for setting people free inside and outside. Sometimes people tend to complicate a simple matter. Let your faith be child-like and you will receive a grown-up healing. - Al Thomas
Affirmation:  He has chosen me in Him before the foundation of the world, that I should be holy and without blame before Him in love.
We serve a God who talks. And when we hear what He is saying, it brings life to our bones, and strength to our spirit man. - Steve Sampson
"Adoration" is the spontaneous yearning of the heart to worship, honor, magnify, and bless God. We ask for nothing but to cherish Him. We seek nothing but his exaltation. We focus on nothing but His goodness. In the prayer of adoration we love God for Himself, for His very being, for His radiant Joy. - Richard Foster
Proverbs 3:5-6 - "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways think on Him, and He will direct your steps." 
We have to understand things from His perspective, otherwise we will become anxious, critical and full of fear, which results in torment. God said He would keep us in perfect peace when we keep our minds on Him (Isaiah 26:3). - C. McGill
We pray feebly because we live feebly. The stream of prayer cannot rise higher than the fountain of living. We simply cannot talk to God, strongly, intimately, and confidently unless we are living for him, faithfully and truly. - E. M. Bounds
Mood: contemplative

SUNDAY SCHOOL - December 23, 2012

 Affirmation:  There is nothing more important in life than giving myself to my destiny - the purpose of God for my life.

As we step out in faith and let go, God will be asking us to exchange hard structured lives of security for foldable tents of faith so that He can bring us into our promised destiny. - Garris Elkins
"And even when he reached the land God promised him, he lived there by faith - for he was like a foreigner, living in tents. - Hebrews 11:9
You may have to sacrifice your reputation with your friends to have an encounter with your destiny. Only one thing will propel you to the point where you don't care what anybody thinks about you, and that is passion! - Tommy Tenney
"Your message burns in my heart and bones, and I cannot keep silent, Lord." - Jeremiah 20:9
We should view difficulties as servants, placed in our circumstances to accomplish a higher purpose. - Wade Tayor 
Affirmation:  The divine nature permeates my soul, transforms my mind, transplants my heart, and transfigures my spirit.
We cannot be in Christ and be a failure! We are clothed in His beauty, His purity, His authority, His name and His love. It is impossible to be in Christ and be a failure. - Kathi Pelton
You can easily step into the anointing to preach the gospel and to disciple believers. If we are filled with the Word and Spirit, then wisdom will flow from our heart and mouth. - Patricia King
"It is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure."  - Philippians 2:13
Hunger is something we must cultivate, just as David did.  He fed his hunger by feeding himself with revelations and remembrances of God. He'd lie on his bed at night and ponder about Him, and think about God and His goodness. - Keith Miller
The best way to set your heart on the higher realm is to ask the Holy Spirit to soften and transform it.  Ask Him to reveal Jesus to you is such a way that you will fall in love with Him in a fresh and real way. - Rob Meyers
Affirmation:  I am holy now in everything I do, just as the Lord is holy, who invited me to be His child.
There is a level of life we can reach where we practice "thanksgiving as a lifestyle" - when difficulty comes along, we have a huge inventory of blessings instantly accessible to bring us into His presence as well as the joy and delight He has over us. - Bill Johnson
"Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise! Give thanks to Him, bless His name." - Psalm 100:4
The very moment you feel drawn toward God is the moment to turn toward Him. Simply lean toward Him with a heart full of love and trust. Do this while you are driving or dressing or eating or while others are talking. - Francois Fenelon
Are you willing to be part of God's army of intercessors and stand in the gap? - T. A. Lewis
"So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found on one."  - Ezekiel 22:30

Sunday School - December 16, 2012

 Affirmation:  God has called me with a holy calling, not according to my works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given to me in Christ Jesus before the world began. 

Many Christians are disjointed. They just move on aimlessly, their minds in a cloudy state, no pattern in view, no DESTINY in sight. - E. M. Bounds
God wants to increase your might! Be faithful with what has been given to you, and you will get more. Ask the Lord to release His might for you. - Keith Miller
"Therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus." - 2 Timothy 2:1
Paul often wrestled in prayer for those whom he discipled --"until Christ be formed in you."  We can avoid many unnecessary misunderstandings, relationship pitfalls and spiritual abortions that lead to destiny delay or destruction if we will take the responsibility to DISCIPLE others into their inheritance in Christ. - Catherine Brown
If I am in the presence of a person for at least five minutes, I consider it an divine appointment (to share the gospel). - Bill Bright
Affirmation:  I exhort others into Kingdom realities.
The Holy Spirit does not draw us so we can hang up a "Do Not Disturb" sign and sit in our little comfort zone singing love songs to Jesus the rest of our lives. As fellow heirs with Christ, we are drawn into intimacy, then empowered in ministry to bring others into their destiny in Christ Jesus. - Mike Bickle
The Holy Ghost in the Christian was to be as powerful as the Holy Ghost was in Christ. Beloved, who has the faith to believe it? Who has faith to exercise it? We cannot exercise anything beyond what we believe to be possible. - John Lake
"Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I go to the Father." - John 14:12
Let God have perfect liberty when you speak. Before God's message can liberate, the liberation must be real in you. - Oswald Chambers
If you have any good qualities, believe that other people have better ones; by doing so you will retain your humility. It does great harm if you place yourself above even one other person. - Thomas a Kempis
Affirmation:  Wherever I go, and to wherever my influence extends, I bring the Kingdom of God into that place.
Spread your wings of worship and fly over life's circumstances.  If you've run out of strength, then wait (and worship) a little longer! - Tommy Tenney
Many Christians live from a view that God is in Heaven and we are knocking at His door. This could not be further from the truth. Jesus said to His disciples I am now with you but I shall be IN YOU.  If we are really His then He is in us. Now we are living from the newness of life standpoint, we connect spirit to Spirit with God in the inner courts of our heart  - John Belt
"...And the communion of the Holy spirit be with you all." - 2 Corinthians 13:14
If your Gospel isn't touching others, it hasn't touched you! -  Curry R. Blake
"Forgiveness is the answer to the child's dream of a miracle by which what is broken is made whole again, what is soiled is made clean again." - Dag Hammarskjold

Sunday School - December 9, 2012

 Affirmation:  God has called me with a holy calling, not according to my works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given to me in Christ Jesus before the world began. 

As you launch out and move forward in the plans and purposes (your destiny) God has for your life, don't be afraid to take a step of faith. You'll never know what's on the other side of the Red Sea until you step into it! - Matt Sorger
Jesus holds everything together, visible and invisible, by the Word of His power, which would mean that He is not only the Beginning and the End, but He is also the middle!  If His mighty Word of power does that for the universe, holding it together, how much more for your life will He uphold, maintain, sustain, guide, and propel your family, your destiny? - Keith Miller
"He is the image of the invisible God....all things were created by Him and for Him....He is before all things and in Him all things hold together. - Colossians 1:15-17
Those who were close to Lazarus had tightly wrapped and bound him. Jesus commanded them, "Unbind him, and let him go!" Lazarus had to be untangled before he was free to see, walk with, and touch Jesus again. Get free from everything that hinders your ability to hear, see, touch or walk with God. It's time to come forth in resurrection power! - B. Breathitt
Praise and thanksgiving prove we are trusting in God to do the impossible for us in His timing and in His way. - Victoria Boyson
Affirmation:  I experience the victory that is mine as a citizen of the Kingdom.
Let's move out in faith and apprehend the heart of God! He has plans that far exceed what we can imagine. - John Belt
The anointing of the Spirit led Jesus to the lost, the poor, the broken and the hurting. The fuel that fed His ministry was a burning heart of compassion. A key to walking in and releasing the anointing is love. - Mahesh Chavda
"But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them." - Matthew 9:36
God loves using ordinary, everyday people.  We become contagious carriers of the anointing from God Himself that propels you into action.  This true supernatural flow of the Holy Spirit gives you an insight into another's need and it enables you to understand their hurts, pain, needs, and heartache. - James Goll
Self is God's greatest enemy, because self always declares independence from Him. What is self? Whatever man possesses or is able to do without seeking, waiting on, or depending on God. - Watchman Nee
Affirmation:  When I come to rest in Him, He will then move through me, and I will actually find rest and refreshment as He does it.
Every advance that we make spiritually is preceded by an occasion to die to self.  The power in our lives comes from where we have died to self and now live unto Christ. - Francis Frangipane
The Lord does not just want us to talk to Him a couple of times a day; He wants us to abide in Him. - Rick Joyner
"And now, little children, abide in Him...." - 1 John 2:28
We must rise up and become intimate with God. Prayer is dialogue. if we dialogue with God, we will overcome our enemy. - Chuck Pierce
All that prayer requires is faith, hope, and love. Great holiness, or piety, or sanctity are not required. Prayer is a road to holiness. - Peter Kreeft

 Affirmation:  I am called to walk the earth, do good on the earth, and to do it in the power of the Holy Spirit.


Jesus is the fulfillment of the promised land for our lives. We no longer have to settle for manna. We can eat the food of the land of promise. There is variety, color, fullness and life for us in the promised land. No more desert, no more dry places. The promises of God bring us into a land of abundance, and the overflow with new adventures of conquest and expansion. Springs of life and rivers of living water overflow here. All of this is ours in the promised land. - John Belt
The people of God in Isaiah's day had starved their imagination by looking on the face of idols., and Isaiah made them begin to use their imagination aright. Rouse yourself - deliberately turn your imagination to God. - Oswald Chambers
"Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things." - Isaiah 40:26
Under the unction and anointing of the Holy Spirit there comes a divine release as you are propelled forward into God's plan and destiny. As you take a "leap of faith" out of the nest of comfort and familiarity, you launch out into the deep. --- Am I willing to leave behind everything? - Matt Sorger
Walk into a new way of thinking and living that comes from allowing God to expand you forward. -- Garris Elkins
Affirmation: I put on the new man which is in the image of Christ who is bringing me to a full knowledge of himself.
You were created by a miraculous God, and through Jesus Christ you're connected to a miracle. The only thing you need to receive your miracle is to discover who you are in Christ -- then you will understand the miracle working power Jesus has given you. - T. L. Osborn
Your life can be a display of the mighty works of God, a display of rivers of revelation, wisdom, and healing for harvest.  God wants you to go after the anointing of His power, not only for healings, but for signs and wonders too! The release of Christ's workings empowers you for harvest.  Call for the lightnings of God when you pray and see satan fall like lightning as God dethrones principalities. - Keith Miller
"And He said to them, 'I saw satan fall like lightning from heaven.'" - Luke 10:18
We have been called by God and anointed by the Holy Spirit to declare what He has done for us. We are to boldly tell everyone we meet what we have seen and heard about Him. - Wendell Smith
Let us look at nothing as though it cannot be transformed. - Francis Frangipane
Affirmation:  When I come to rest in Him, He will then move through me, and I will actually find rest and refreshment as He does it.
We can never just cry to God. We must also act. Prayer always leads to entering the fray. The movement of prayer is from God to neighbor. - Charles Ringma
Argue with the unconverted and they will think it is all a matter of argument.  Declare the truth without question as Peter did, and people are glad to find rest for their souls. - Reinhard Bonnke
"So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls." - Acts 2:41
One of the great difficulties man has is that he cannot be quiet before God. A disquieted person has great difficulty in receiving revelation. - Watchman Nee
He wants to pour infinite riches into your soul; prayer is a way of opening up your soul so that more of God can enter. - Peter Kreeft
