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
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

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
