Who Gives Kudos:



Sunday School - September 30, 2012

Affirmation: I rise up to the high call of God and stop saying things about myself that are no longer true.

When we understand God's purpose for our life we can enter any situation or circumstance confident that we will see victory, because we are walking out the destiny God created us for, called us to, and has empowered us to step into. - Rob Hotchkin


We are a people whose lives have a destiny to stand in His Holy Place; to be a gate, an opening that ushers in His glorious presence, that the King of Glory would enter. - Keith Miller

"Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name....worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness." - Psalm 29:1,2

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

Your calling is your destiny as a child of God. It is where you will feel the most anointed. It is where you will feel the most connected to the supernatural realm. - Dennis Cramer


Affirmation: To truly know God I must seek Him until I pass through my knowledge into an encounter with the Almighty.

Remember: those who ask receive. Ask and it shall be given you. Live for God. Keep yourself clean and holy. Live under the unction of the Holy Spirit. Let the mind of Christ be yours so that you live in God's desires and plans. Glorify him as you establish his blessing upon other people. - Smith Wigglesworth

The heart knowledge of God's deep affection and full acceptance for us as His own beloved children is the best motivation for CONSISTENT SPIRITUAL GROWTH. - Mike Bickle

"You have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have receive a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, 'Abba Father!'" - Romans 8:15

How do we listen to his voice? With the ear of our heart. With love. Love has ears, as love has eyes. Just be there, and love Him, and let Him love you. - Peter Kreeft

When Jesus immortalized the principle of the cross-life by washing the disciples' feet, he added, "I have given you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you." (John 13:15). The cross-life is the life of voluntary submission. The cross-life is the life of freely accepted servanthood. - Richard Foster


Affirmation: Whenever someone tells me that God is not going to deliver me, I just tell them "He's already delivered me in the name of Jesus."

If you want to rise above your circumstances, then make the decision that nothing is going to stop your worship. Only you can determine the limits of your worship. Does your worship have the divine "lift" necessary to lift others above their circumstances as well? - Tommy Tenney

What our enemy has is a power stronger than ours, but what we have is authority over his power. - Watchman Nee

"Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall hurt you." - Luke 10:19


True Christianity is the most challenging life we can have, and also the most fulfilling. It is the ultimate adventure. It is far more than attending a couple of boring meetings a week. - Rick Joyner

Pressures have been placed in our daily life experience to "press" us into the image of our Lord Jesus Christ. - Wade Taylor

Sunday School - September 23, 2012

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.

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

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

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

How many people perish in a generation through empty learning, caring little for the service of God? And because they prefer to be famous rather than humble, they perish with their own thoughts. - Thomas a Kempis

Affirmation: I walk in the spirit, I shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

We should take a "love inventory" of all our relationships. Is there someone I truly dislike? Is there anyone who causes me to grieve the Spirit by forcing me to live in bitterness? - Tim LaHaye

Paul urges us to be so deeply rooted, so in union with Christ, that the impossible becomes possible, and the invisible becomes visible. - Keith Miller

"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might." - Ephesians 6:10

Think of yourself as one about to take a journey. Like all expeditions, our journey starts with a departure. Long before we ever arrive at holiness, we must depart from self-righteousness and pride. - Francis Frangipane

 Sanctification is the possessing the mind of Christ and all the mind of Christ. - John Wesley

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

The Lord is not just trying to change us -- He's trying to kill us! True Christianity requires the ultimate price -- the "whole burnt offering," which means our whole life must be place on the altar. - Rick Joyner

You need to resist the spirit of fear in order to walk forward in faith. You need to say, "In Jesus' name, I resist the spirit of fear. I command the spirit of fear to go from me." - Norvel Hayes

"Be not afraid, only believe." - (Mark 5:36)

Go beyond your natural mind. Drink deeper. Ask the Lord to help you. Be encouraged into a life of simple worship. - John Belt

 God is calling us out of hiding, He is enticing us to come away to live again, love again, believe again, and to bring our relationship with Him to new heights. - T. A. Lewis

Sunday School - September 16, 2012

Affirmation: I reject the expectations of the world and begin to discern the yoke that God has called me to carry.

When we understand God's purpose for our life we can enter any situation or circumstance confident that we will see victory, because we are walking out the destiny God created us for, called us to, and has empowered us to step into. - Rob Hotchkin

Every believer holds a position of authority that comes with God-given talents or gifts and is hidden in Christ Jesus, above all demonic authority. So why are so many of us ineffective? - John Bevere

"Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you...." - 2 Timothy 1:6

"Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou has put all things under his feet." - Paslms 8:6

In the same way Mary was chosen to conceive Jesus within her womb and bring Him forth into the world, so too, we as believers are chosen through intimacy and impartation from heaven (conception), to bring forth the Son of God to the world through displays of heavenly glory and power. - Ryan Wyatt

Lord, I thank You for a fresh measure of divine boldness to move forward into my destiny and experience victory on every side. In Jesus name, Amen. - Sandie Freed

Affirmation: Things have never been the way they are going to be because God is doing a new work in me.

An incorrect view of suffering has allowed the Trojan horse of disease to come in through the gates of the community of the redeemed. The sufferings of Jesus were realized in the persecution He endured and in the burden He carried for people. He did not suffer with disease. That must be removed from our idea of Christian suffering. - Bill Johnson

If we are not walking in the blessings that God has promised in His Word, it is because we have not positioned our lives in that place where God can use His power to bless and to save. - Markus Bishop

"He did not many mighty works there (in Nazareth) because of their unbelief." - Matthew 13:58

Our strategy against the accuser is to refuse to allow any words other than the Word of God to define our future. When the accuser attacks, instead of descending to his level of accusation, we must ascend in praise to the height of Christ's exaltation. We flee into the Presence of God. - Francis Frangipane

Those who are under the deception of evil spirits tend to be self-confident. They will not easily accept others' advice, nor will they trust in the feelings of other brothers and sisters in Christ. - Watchman Nee

Affirmation: I have a passion to give Jesus preeminence in everything.

When He gives you time, take it to pray. When there is not time, be satisfied anyway. Lift up your spirit to Him without making any outward sigh. Talk only when necessary. Bear the hardest things that cross your life. You need to deny yourself more than you need more light. Be faithful in keeping silent, and God will keep you from evil when you talk. - Francois Fenelon

Look beyond your feelings, fears, and your circumstances. You will find that your attitude and your outlook will change as your praise brings His presence into your life. - Myles Munroe.

"Who is the King of glory? The Lord, strong and mighty, the Lord, mighty in battle!" Psalm 24:8

We do not want a life that is crossed and balked. But it is part of the discipline of humility that we must not spare our hand where it can perform a service and that we do not assume that our schedule is our own to manage, but allow it to be arranged by God. - Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

To esteem someone better than ourselves simply means to value him more than we value ourselves. If Jesus could humble Himself and value our good above His own welfare, then we should certainly be able to do the same. It can happen when we die to self and live for God. - Andrew Wommack

Sunday School - September 9, 2012

Affirmation: The same power that raised Jesus from the dead enables me to rise out of my adverse circumstances and step into the purposes of God for my life.

God desires to extend the capacity of our thinking to reflect the expanding greatness of His heart. Pulling up our mental tent pegs keeps us mobil and moving forward into the destiny God has designed for each of us. - Garris Elkins

"And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes." - Ezekiel 47:9

Ezekiel had a vision of the temple and a stream of water that gradually becomes wider and more powerful. The waters, which represent what God has deposited within us (our destiny), must reach the sea, which represents the masses of humanity who are without Christ. - Sean Smith

Paul often spoke of patience and perseverance; they are necessary virtues for evangelism and discipling others. Jesus says, "Follow me" (Matt. 4:19). Well, He as gone ahead. So somebody must follow Him. Why not you? - Reinhard Bonnke

"Christ changes us from enemies into His friends and gave us the task of making others His friends also. - 2 Corinthians 5:18

To be a soul champion is the happiest thing in the world. With every soul you bring to Christ, you get a new Heaven upon earth. - C. H. Spurgeon

Affirmation: He has not limited me on how far I can go, even to sitting with Him on His throne.

When you read Gods word you, you must constantly be saying to yourself, 'It is talking to me, and about me.' - Soren Kierkegaard

"Jesus called in a loud voice, 'Lazarus, come forth!' ......Jesus told them. 'Unwrap him and let him go!'" - John 11:43,44

Just as Jesus told the people to unwrap Lazarus, so we must obey. The "Lazrus Generation" must clean up. and renounce the works of darkness. But we must not re-wrap them in church grave clothes. We must not let the Christian Clone Factory get their hands on them. We must give them the Word and the Spirit but not dull the edge of their uniqueness. - Mario Murillo

Satan's preferred mode of operation is exploiting ignorance (our ignorance of our inheritance and who we are in Christ) because it allows him to move with impunity. - Ed Silvoso

If you think Jesus won't heal you, you're wrong. He'll do anything scriptural for you. - Norvel Hayes

Affirmation: I consider Jesus the author and finisher of my faith. I consider Him instead of the cares of this world.

Steady persevering work in the unseen is the only way to keep the life un-crushed. Continually get away from pettiness and paltriness of mind and thought. Ask God to keep the eyes of your spirit open to the Risen Christ and it will be impossible for drudgery to damp you. - Oswald Chambers


God calls us, not only to know His Word, but to pray it. We must go from intellectualizing God's Word to being impregnated by it. - Francis Frangipane

"To Him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by His blood and made us a kingdom of priests to serve His God and Father..." - Revelation 1:5,6

A priest's first responsibility is to minister to the Lord, and then second, to minister to God's people. God's desire is that we, as a generation of priests, would come to His Mountain to speak directly with Him and hear His voice. - Ivan Roman

As we advance the presence of God in our lives we experience a series of little deaths in which we are asked to release many forms of attachments and to move increasingly from needing others to living for them. - Henri Nouwen

Sunday School - September 2, 2012

Affirmation: My job is to win the lost to Jesus Christ. There is life coming out of me wherever I go.

I cannot by "being a good person" tell of Jesus' atoning death and resurrection, nor of my faith in His divinity. The emphasis is too much on me and too little on Him. - Samuel Shoemaker

Get a vision from God and step out to do something with it. Don't be like the wicked and lazy servant who can't see beyond himself. (Matthew 25:24-30) - John Belt

"So I was afraid and I went and hid your talent in the ground"...But the master answered him, 'You wicked and slothful servant!' - Matthew 25:25-26

God is searching for believers who will value His presence over their own selfish desires and wait for His purposes despite long periods of preparation. They will value Him and HIS PLANS FOR THEM above all else. - Myles Munroe

We are to use the ability of God in our life to serve and disciple those who are weak, young or unable so that the Body of Christ might be whole. - John Bevere

Affirmation: I am called to ascend into the heavenly places and be seated with Jesus and at the same time descend to the earth with the evidence of Heaven's reality.

For a small reward a man will hurry away on a long journey while for eternal life many will hardly take a single step. - Thomas a Kempis

"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

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

The indwelling Holy Spirit enables us to bear more of the revelation of Jesus than was possible for the original twelve disciples. - Bill Johnson

Meditation is threatening to us because it boldly calls us to enter into the living presence of God for ourselves. It tells us that God is speaking in the continuous present and wants to address us. - Richard Foster

Affirmation: God increases in me as I behold His glory - not my own shortcomings.

My purpose is to pray for believers and those who do not know God. My prayer and my faith will make a difference. - Andrew Murray

You are upset by small losses, but do not see eternal gains! Your oversensitivity makes your trials worse. Abandon yourself to God. - Francois Fenelon

"You are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed."

- Luke 10:41

We deal with the devil by dealing with the carnal thought systems, the strongholds, that protect the enemy. - Francis Frangipane

Faith-filled prayers that line up with God's Word and plan can bring radical change to situations. God actually looks for these kind of prayers. - Cindy McGill
