Who Gives Kudos:



 

  

Sunday School - April 29, 2012

Affirmation: The Holy Spirit indwells me, and I have God's Word. I use it to frame my world.

The "sound" of your Godly calling (destiny) should be nothing less than the driving force behind how you live your entire life. - Dennis Cramer

Do you desire that Christ should dwell in your heart by faith? - Smith Wigglesworth

"Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any on hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me." - Revelation 3:20

Without the gate-opener of praise and thanksgiving, we are left in a place of stagnation. The river of God's Life is dammed up because of our lack of appreciation for what He has done and is doing. - John Belt

How do your earthly relationships reflect your relationship with God? What do they reveal about how you are treating Him? - Shawn Bolz

Affirmation: I speak life into my circumstances. I go to the Word of God to find out what he has to say about me and my situation, and I say what He says.

 

Prayer is love. To love God is to seek His presence, to seek intimacy and union. (You do not love God if you do not want to spend time with Him.) Love is also communication. (You do not love God if you do not want to talk with Him and get to know Him better.) - Peter Kreeft

 

Religious perfectionism misses the essence of the message of the gospel. The gospel is good news. The good news is that we have been called into relationship with God, not a religious performance. - Steve Sampson.

"May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and love of God, and the fellowship (communion) of the Holy Spirit be with you all." - 2 Corinthians 13:14

Prayer is when you turn away from the world and are preoccupied with the things of God. "Koinonia" (fellowship,communion) is when you turn away from the things of God and are preoccupied with God Himself. - Jerry Coulter

As we go inward in growing communion with Him, we learn how to call forth the living water within us and release it in an outward flood that transforms lives. - James Goll

Affirmation: I plant the Word of God in my heart which will produce my miracle.

"Then He said 'Let me go, for the day is breaking.' But Jacob said, 'I will not let you go, unless you bless me.'" - Genesis 32:26

Persevere against any and all difficulties which confront you in your seeking to collect your internal being. Do not desist until that bright sun of the Lord's internal light begins to appear within you. Be steadfast until the Lord gives your spirit His blessing. - Michael Molinos

When we live outside of self-denial, we demand that things go our way. When they do not, re revert to self-pity. Jesus made it quite clear that self-denial is the only sure way to love ourselves. - Richard Foster

"He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for my sake will find it." - Matthew 10:39

 

May the brilliancy of the King's face shine upon you in a great way, and may you reflect His light--the light that releases the manifold wisdom of God through your life! -- Keith Miller

Sunday School - April 22, 2012

Affirmation: I don't sit around waiting for God to produce my harvest. I find precious promises from the Word of God and plant them in my heart and in my life.

Our vision is linked with our calling. If you feel you have not defined the vision God has for you in this season of your life, ask Him to clarify your call. Out of that call, allow Him to define your vision and show you the direction you are to take. - Chuck Pierce

It is the Christian's calling to be a priest unto God. Sadly, though this is the calling, many believers forsake this high privilege and degenerate into the lower classes. - Watchman Nee

"Feed My Sheep."

- John 21:17

If I love my Lord I have to FEED HIS SHEEP. There is no relief and no release from this commission. Beware of counterfeiting the love of God by working along the line of natural human sympathy. - Oswald Chambers

When you have an important decision to make, pray and fast. Jesus wants us to operate in the way He operated; much time in communion and love with the Father, and much accomplished for the Kingdom. - Myles Munroe

 

Affirmation: I watch over my heart and mind to keep it moist, watered with the Word, and free from the weeds of unforgiveness, doubt, fear, and discouragement.

One might well ask, whether the feebleness of our desires for God, the Holy Spirit, and for all the fullness of Christ, is not the cause of our so little praying. - E. M. Bounds

The Spirit of wisdom gives you ability that is beyond your ability. It is the creative ability to flow in the thing He is asking you to do. - Keith Miller

"That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. - Ephesians 1:17

I make it my business only to persevere in His holy presence (the inexpressible sweetness which I taste and experience there) -- an habitual, silent, and secret conversation of the soul with God, which often cause me joys and raptures inwardly, and sometimes also outwardly. - Brother Lawrence

"Hath God indeed said ye shall not eat of every tree in the garden?"

Affirmation: Jesus knows my name. Jesus loves me personally. Jesus gave all for me. Jesus deserves all from me.

Never cling to the things of this life, no matter how important they seem to you. Trust completely in God. View each moment as if it were the whole sweep of eternity. - Francois Fenelon

He loved us enough to leave His Father in Heaven, and He expects no less from us - asking us to abandon all other loves for Him. As His followers, we are to treat everything else as lesser in comparison to Him, the greater. - Shawn Bolz

"If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters - yes, even his own life - he cannot be my disciple

. - Luke 14:26

There is no middle road. You are either righteous by God's unmerited favor or you are trying to merit righteousness with your own works. - Joseph Prince

Lord, make me a tabernacle for Your Spirit like the tabernacle of old. Fill me with Your Shekinah glory. Amen. - William J. Seymour (December 1906)

 

 

 

 

This was the beginning of reasoning about the things of God. - William Law

Sunday School - April 15, 2012

Affirmation: He has raised me up with Jesus and seated me in heavenly places. He has given me His name. His Blood, His Authority. His Power. His Spirit.

One of the dimensions of living the way of Christ, besides living a life of love, forgiveness, and service is embracing the spirituality of DOWNWARD MOBILITY. This is a willingness to modify our career, change our location, or whatever other sacrifices we are called to make, for the sake of following Christ's purpose for our life (our destiny). - Henri Nouwen

As I pray, it is the Crucified Christ who comes to walk with me and in whose power I live. - Andrew Murray

"If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you." - John 15:7

Are you willing to spend and be spent; not seeking to be ministered unto, but to minister? - Oswald Chambers

God gives each believer the gifts he needs to reach the destiny God has for him. - John Bevere

Affirmation: I confess today that I yield my heart to God's word so that right thinking, right believing, and right speaking becomes a way of life for me.

The Lord will allow a challenge to occur in our life so that we are provoked to rise up and remain on guard! We must not allow a spirit of slumber to overtake us. - Sandie Freed

Why are we so lackadaisical in our search for God? One possible answer is that we have yet to experience the beauty and power of God's manifest presence. Therefore, we don't understand that the reward of our seeking is worth every bit of our effort, and more. - Myles Munroe

"One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in His temple." - Psalm 27:4

The peace of God, or the absence of His peace in your spirit, is the voice of the Lord. It is clearly one way He communicates to every child of God. - Steve Sampson

Who is He that you should hunger and thirst for Him and set aside time to seek Him diligently? - Mike Bickle

Affirmation: I draw closer, week by week, to knowing and loving Jesus Christ.

Many are attached, as if by chains, to things they can never really own. I want you to know how to live in such a way that you are free from soulish attachments to anything this world has to offer. - John of the Cross

When we allow grace for the failures of others we will also reap grace for our own shortcomings, Instead of criticizing others we will look at them through the "new wine" of grace. - Paul Keith Davis

"Truly, truly I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink His blood, you have no life in you."

John 6:53

Those who abide in Jesus will know the anointing and will flow in it (John 15). We plug in through intimacy, fellowship, and communion with Him. In so doing, our roots grow deep and so we become deeply rooted in Him. - Keith Miller

We must pray for those we know are lost for their hearts to be seasoned by God, so they can be drawn by the Holy Spirit to receive the Lord as their personal Savior. Let us release the Holy Spirit's action, through prayer to draw all people to the Father. - John Mark Pool

Sunday School - April 8, 2012

Affirmation:

Through prayer I know His presence continually. I am called to be His dwelling place.

The central message of Christianity is: "What are you waiting for? Believe now in the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ. Everything is finished. He has already taken care of your sins! This is the very essence of the crucifixion and the resurrection. - Ros Rinker

God, Himself, has given you a generous measure of faith. He has deposited within you the precious amount, degree, size, and portion necessary to fulfill your calling with great success. - Dennis Cramer

Give yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life, and surrender your whole being to Him to be used for righteous purposes. - Romans 6:13

You, beloved, live and operate in the supernatural realm! The Lord Jesus is with you 100 %! You are a successful person! -- Joseph Prince

Shake the dust from your past, and move forward in His promises -- Kay Arthur

Affirmation:

I was created for glory. I am commissioned to be like Him, and He is glorious!

Never tell a person something can't be done, because God may have been waiting for centuries for someone ignorant enough to believe that the impossible could be possible. - Myles Munroe

Good feelings will not free us. Ecstatic experiences will not free us. Getting "high on Jesus" will not free us. Without a knowledge of the truth, we will not be free. - Richard Foster

"You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."

Information overload can become a huge barrier to your God-given dreams, leaving little time for intimacy and communication with the One who seeks to bring those seeds inside you to greatness. - Steve Munsey

Am I spending time in His presence? Everything depends on this. -- Andrew Murray

Affirmation:

I present my body as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is my reasonable service.

The Holy Spirit is given to make us witnesses, and His own work is to highlight the work of Christ and actuate it in human lives. If we want to move in the Spirit, we need to get into that kind of activity because that is what He is doing. - Reinhard Bonnke

"But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be my witnesses .... to the end of the earth."

- Acts 1:8

 

Those who intentionally ignore elements of Scripture that are outside of their experience and teach others to do the same rarely have the profound encounters with God and the corresponding miracles taking place in their lives. - Bill Johnson

Deeper prayer: A simple vision of God, seeing Him and loving Him (and very gently rejecting all the images which come into your mind). Everything within you is collected, centered and fixed wholly on Him. - Michael Molinos

The more we receive in silent prayer, the more we can give in active life. -- Malcolm Muggeridge

 

 

- John 8:32
