Hi Trina. You have so much on your plate right now. I know it's difficult getting away for a little while by yourself without interruptions where you can pray and listen to what the Lord is saying to you. If you do not have peace in your heart about the direction that you feel you are getting from the Lord then I would say to wait, continue to seek Him and don't make any major decisions until you feel at peace with it. One of the ways that He leads us is through His peace. Continue to pray, worship Him and listen for His voice. He will not fail to give you the direction that you need.

Father, I lift Trina up to You. I thank You for the heart of love and devotion that she has for You. Father, I pray that as she seeks You and Your will for her life that You will speak clearly to her heart with the direction that she needs to take. Father, You said in Your word that the steps of a good man or woman are ordered by the Lord and that You delight in her way. I ask You, Father, to show her the next step she is to take and give her the courage to step out in faith to follow Your leading. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

I do not always post my personal life, like on my blog, about this going on in my life. I am really having a rough time balancing all my responsibilities with caring for my grandma, who is getting worse, homeschooling, training my kids in the Lord. I need to exercise to get rid of the diabetes too. Just many, many challenges at this time, and a little fearful of the unknown too I guess. I am so trying to rely in the Holy Spirit for His direction, but I still have no rest and no peace in my heart. I guess, I just keep on doing it until I do. Christ has to be my portion and my All and All! If anyone has some additional wisdom, I would really appreciate it!!

I pulled this off my FB feed this morning. Rick Renner is one of my favorite Bible teachers. This was his status for today:

"THE HOLY SPIRIT has every answer you need. He is inside you -- just yearning to connect with your mind and to flood your head with the ideas and answers you've been seeking for a long time. Get some quiet time today -- and let the voice of the Spirit reach up and reach into the recesses of your brain to illuminate you with the answers you need. He certainly will do it! -- RICK RENNER By the way, I think this is so important I am asking you to "share" it -- everyone needs the voice of the Holy Spirit!"

For those of you who are seeking answers to questions, what to do, where to go, how to change your lives, here is a nugget of truth for you!

John 14:16, 17 AMP And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever--The Spirit of Truth, Whom the world cannot receive (welcome, take to its heart), because it does not see Him or know and recognize Him, for He lives with you [constantly] and will be in you.

1 John 2:27 speaks of the Holy Spirit as the anointing and unction within you:

But as for you, the anointing (the sacred appointment, the unction) which you received from Him abides [permanently] in you; [so] then you have no need that anyone should instruct you. But just as His anointing teaches you concerning everything and is true and is no falsehood, so you must abide in (live in, never depart from) Him [being rooted in Him, knit to Him], just as [His anointing] has taught you [to do].

Seek your direction from the Holy Spirit who lives within you. Question Him about what you need to do to cooperate with His power within to make provision for whatever it is that you need. Then act on the instruction that He gives you.

May God bless each one of you with His supernatural wisdom and direction, Team!

Today was tough, first day my son has been gone on bad terms with my husband. My heart has been heavy but I know the Lord is working this all out for the better. I have been praising Him for keeping my son safe and for the time I had with him. Jake (my 18 year old son) is going to job corp. We made the appointment for administration before he left for Sept. 10th, so it won't be long before he is in a safe comfortable place where he can learn a career.
Our whole family seems to be under spiritual attack ,"but with God for us who can be against us!' Even though times are tough I can't wait to see Gods next move, after this last couple of weeks its going to be good!
Thank you all for your prayers and support you have helped me so much and I can feel Gods presents through every one of you.

The Lord is my strength!

Linda, God is right there with you. He will not leave you to travel the road by yourself. And we are here to pray for you and support you. May you feel God's arms around you to carry you through the difficulty.

Father, I lift Linda up to You and ask that You would strengthen her by Your Spirit who lives within her. I pray that she will feel Your presence and know that Your arms are around her to carry her through this difficult time. Father, grant her peace in her heart knowing that You are right there with her. I speak to the storm in her life and command it to "be still", in Jesus' name. Thank You, Father, for giving her Your presence, protection, and provision. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Hi everyone I have a Prayer Request for Jane Gibe, today. Jane's husband Robert has lost his Aunt Sissy and the Family is currently making funeral arrangements. A lot of these responsibilities have fallen to Jane. Let us as her Spark family lift her up in prayer to get her through this. Our sister Jane has so much on her plate, I believe this is just one more test to help her grow stronger and closer to her Lord God.
I want to thank everyone who has in the past and everyone now who always come forward in times of need, for we are truly Blessed to have such a team. in the name of Christ Jesus Amen

Hi Beth! Wow! Honestly, cardboard testimonies are new to me... but these were some great testimonies. Beautiful... There is nothing - absolutely NOTHING - that our God cannot fix, heal, transform or restore!

I admit I want to chase down the blind man at the end to pray for healing of His eyes! Father God, I don't know that elderly gentleman but I know that YOU do, and I send Your healing Word to him right now, that he might not only experience your healing touch but that he might know there is forgiveness and mercy and restoration with You as well, in Jesus' Name I pray!
emoticon

Can't help myself.. I lived for too long myself under sickness and oppression until the Lord taught me to be an overcomer and to stand up and stand against it in His Name and His power and strength. Now, whenever I see the work of the devil afflicting someone, I feel a strong desire to run the devil off. When I'm walking down the street, or through a shopping mall, or wherever, if I see someone who is ill, injured or handicapped in any way, I pray for them. I only approach them and offer to pray for them directly if I feel the Lord's leading but otherwise I will pray by myself for them.

Chris, there are no "experts" here. We all should be willing to learn from each other. Proverbs 27:17 says As iron sharpens iron, a friend sharpens a friend. (NLT) We learn from the Lord by His Spirit as we pray and study the word, but we also learn through interaction with others.

Epesians 4:16 says that the body of Christ is joined and knit together by what every joint supplies. Now, I know that sounds a little strange but God says that when we come together as the body of Christ we all have a supply to give so that the body can be a properly functioning body. You have a supply to give, Karen has a supply to give, I have a supply to give, etc. The end result of all of this is that the body of Christ grows up to maturity. We help each other by what we give in the comments that we make here on the team. Without your supply, or your input the body will not function properly. We need you!

Karen and I, as leaders, are here to oversee the team that God has placed in our hands. We watch the comments, we interject when necessary and we are here to help each team member grow and get the most out of this team's purpose. We don't want any team member to feel uncomfortable in posting a question or comment especially when they don't understand. So, join in and feel right at home. You're among family!

Chris, honey, we all go through a learning experience, and we continue that learning. Just like right now you feel that you have a lot to learn because you are new... for as far as I have come and what I have learned, I still have more learning to do. We are always growing from level to level, faith to faith. There will always be someone who knows more than each of us. And even if we thought we had exhausted the knowledge of man, God will still always know more.

the important thing is not in comparing yourself to others around you; it is simply focusing on continually learning in the Lord. Keep your focus on your Heavenly Father, on knowing Him and His Word, and don't worry about all the rest like that. There may be people who know more than you right now but think.... YOU now know more than some others. So relax. Rest in your Heavenly Father's arms. :)

HI Everyone

I want to be honest. I want to come clean tonight. I haven't been participating because I felt so behind in my understanding of the Word that I felt I had little to contribute. Some good friends talked some sense into me. I might need to ask people questions. I will have to use a concordance as well for verses as my knowledge of verses from the Bible is rather limited.

I picked a verse tonight involving pride as that is why I haven't been participating. It doesn't perfectly fit my problem.

It is Ezekiel 24:21 Say to the House of Israel;This is what the soverien Lord says; I am about to desecrate my sanctuary- the stronghold in which you take pride, the delight of your eyes, the object of your affection. The sons and daughters you have left behind will fall by the sword.

Pride hasn't overtaken me like a whole nation being destroyed like my guide says but It was keeping me from fellowship with like minded people. I am guilty of false pride emoticon

Chris

This morning I am reminded of Proverbs 18:20: Words satisfy the soul as food satisfies the stomach; the right words on a person's lips bring satisfaction.

This is so true. Think about how you feel after having "words' with a person; often your stomach is uneasy, upset or hurting. You may feel nauseous if it's been a heated argument. The words that have been spoken to you and that you may have said in retaliation bring the wrong kind of satisfaction; a negative effect upon our physical beings.

Proverbs 18:21 Those who love to talk will experience the consequences, for the tongue can kill or nourish life.

Every lash of the tongue in a heated argument slices a wound in the other person. The consequences of words spoken in anger leave wounds but the consequences of words spoken in love and kindness build up and nourish the other person.

Our words are containers of power, either for the bad or for the good. I pray that my words will give life, not cause death to another person. Oh, how I wish I could take back the words that I have spoken in anger to people. These are the times when I wish my lips were sealed or wired shut. How I hate the thought of the wounds that I might have inflicted upon another.

Today I declare that my words will bring life not death into another person's life. I cannot change what might have happened in the past, but I have control over what words I speak in the future. I declare that my stomach will be satisfied and at peace with the words of life that I speak today!

Thanks, Karen!

Thank you, Chris.

Father, I pray for Chris as he travels home today that You would give him safety as he travels. Father, I pray that You will place your angels around his vehicle from front to back, top to bottom and side to side. I thank You for giving Your angels charge over him to guard him and keep him in all his ways. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Please let me know when you arrive home, Chris!

Thanks Avanell.

What I do each day is to read the word each day and apply it in my life. I am so new that is the best way for me right now.

Please pray for safe travels for me as I journey home today.

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at the present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad. --C. S. Lewis

Are you satisfied with just being an ordinary, decent egg, so to speak, or do you desire to live your life to the fullest by fulfilling the potential that God has placed within you? You were created in the likeness and image of God to be a minister of reconciliation to the world around you. It is through the church, His body, that the world sees Jesus.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "The just shall live by faith." Romans 1:17

The gospel of Christ is the POWER of God to salvation for everyone who "believes".

Power -- dunamis -- might, great force, great ability, strength.

Jesus came to give us His gospel, His "good news" of salvation. But we have to "believe" it and act on it in faith. We don't grow through osmosis; we grow from faith to faith as we believe, receive and act on the good news of Jesus Christ. God's word is food for our spirit man. Jesus said in Matthew 4:4 But He answered and said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by brad alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.'"

What are you doing today to grow into what God has designed and created you to be?

I declare that I am being changed from faith to faith and glory to glory by the Spirit of God. (Romans 1:17 & 2 Corinthians 3:18)

Yes, you know I will pray for you, Chris! You will do well with your college classes! God will help you get it all done! Let me know when you start that other book. I have something to discuss with you about it, but not until you're ready to read it.

I will pray for you Avanell that you are able to get everything accomplished the way you desire. I have the book commanding your morning by Cindy Trimm and will start on that after Joyce Meyer's Battlefield of the Mind is read. I to face college classes soon. I also have my daily reading from the Bible and reading my verses. Perhaps you might pray for me as well friend and sister.

"Many don't realize that when a soul feeds on toxic thoughts and falsehoods, just like when a body feeds on toxins in the form of imitation food substances, it slows down and ceases to operate at maximum capacity. That's when you need to commit to doing a deep cleanse and detoxifying not only your body, but also your soul. You need to abstain from the thoughts, habits, and behavioral patterns that undermine your destiny, purpose, and happiness. What are the mental barriers and roadblocks keeping you from living more authentically? What is undermining your courage and creativity? What is keeping you from fulfilling your greatest potential?"

This is an excerpt from the book "The 40 Day Soul Fast, Your Journey to Authentic Living" by Cindy Trimm. I have just started this book and so far I am intrigued and challenged by what I am reading. I believe it would be a book by which we all could gain more tools for our tool belt for successful Christian living. It provides more ammunition for winning the battles that we all fight!

It's difficult for me to read and apply a book such as this because of the schedule that I am keeping with college, my responsibilities here and of course, my husband and home. But if it will help me overcome so I can help others overcome then it is well worth the extra time that I might put into it. Please pray for me that I can complete everything that I have to do with an excellent spirit such as what Daniel exhibited!

Hi Everyone

I am safe at my parents home till Thursday when I go back home from vacation. I am told by my friend who has been gathering the mail that there has been an armed robbery on the property in my absence. That is in addition to a burgalry or a residence earlier in the summer.

A good friend recommended Psalm 91. Are their any other suggestions for passages or verses about protection. BTW I was saved only 9 months ago so any help would be appreciated.

Chris

You're welcome, Susan! The freeing part of this is that when we get into God's word and understand all that Jesus died to give us that we can then pray to the Father without begging for something that has already been provided for us. We then agree with thankfulness that the victory is ours through Christ Jesus as He always leads us in triumph through His overcoming power. We pray from the victory side instead of pleading with God to provide something that has already been bought and paid for!

Thank you Avanell.... awesome and humbling to understand that Jesus already won for us so we don't have to keep "trying to win". emoticon If I walk abiding in Him, I walk in His victory..... another truth I need to focus on and allow the Lord to transform my mind. emoticon

Though they stumble, they will not fall,
for the LORD holds them by the hand.

My steps are directed by the Lord

He delights in every detail of my life

If I stumble I will not fall down

Because God holds my hand

Father, I thank You that I can trust you to hold onto my hand wherever I walk today. You know what lies ahead of me and the potholes that might be in my path. I thank You, Father, for delighting in every detail of my life. I know that You care for me and have directed my steps through life. Thank You for keeping me safe from harm. You are my Protector and Provider. You are the strength of my salvation and I place my trust in You. I pray that as I go through this day that I will glorify you in my thoughts, speech and actions. May You receive the glory for my life! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Praise the Lord! Isn't God good! He knows exactly where you are and what you need to hear to encourage you and help you achieve the good plan that He has for your life. I love your passage of scripture! It is one of my favorites! Seems like they all are! LOL

I love your statement "we overwhelmingly conquer"! YES! And verse 31 says: What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

We are on the winning team! God is for us, not against us! He freely gives us all things!

Hallelujah! I'm doing a "happy" dance here!

I just reviewed this thread today and feel like crying, I love it so much! emoticon
This is exactly what the Lord has asked me to do more of recently, and I am so excited to find these wonderful Scriptures from God's heart to yours, and now to mine.... I can add these to the list I am using to confess for myself, my husband and my son. emoticon
How great is our God!!

Today I prayed Romans 8:35-39:

Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Just as it is written,
ďFor Your sake we are being put to death all day long;
We were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.Ē
BUT in ALL these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.
For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

We overwhelmingly conquer! Let me believe You for MORE every day, Lord Jesus, for You are able!

ďGo and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.Ē (Nehemiah 8:10)

What do you base your belief on? Is it based on how you feel or what you are experiencing in life or is it based on the truth of God's word? Whatever we place our faith in will be what we see played out in our lives. What happens to us is not always God's will, but sometimes is the result of the enemy of our souls who comes to steal, kill and destroy and sometimes it is the result of a mindset that has been influenced by feelings, emotions, error in teaching, or what those around us may have said to us concerning our situations, but those things are usually man's logical conclusions and not necessarily truth. The only truth we can place our trust in is the Word of God. Truth supersedes fact! Before you assume that your plight in life is from God, check out His character and nature in God's Word, learn from His word what Jesus paid for in His crucifixion that are benefits to you as you become a part of His family. Then begin to believe the truth, instead of the lies of the enemy. Renew your mind to the truth of God's Word! God is good, all the time! The devil is bad, all the time! Good God, bad devil!

Today I declare:

That God is good and the devil is bad! That Jesus is the life giver and Satan is the life stealer. (John 10:10)

That the plan that God has for my life is good, filled with hope for a good future! (Jeremiah 29:11)

That Jesus bore my infirmities, sicknesses, sin, and lack and nailed them to the cross and by His stripes I am healed. (Isaiah 53:4, 5; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24; 2 Corinthians 8:9)

Job 38:12, 13 "Have you ever commanded the morning to appear and caused the dawn to rise in the east? Have you ever told the daylight to spread to the ends of the earth, to bring an end to the night's wickedness?"

Even though only God can command the morning to appear and cause the dawn to rise in the east, in a sense here he was asking Job if he ever thought about speaking into your morning and bringing order into your day?

Job 22:27, 28 You will make your prayer to Him, He will hear you, And you will pay your vows. You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways.

In the Old Testament the priest went into the Holy of Holies to meet with God. He was the only one who could enter that Holy Place and he went there on behalf of the people to confess their sins to God and offer the sacrifice that would atone for their sins. He then would hear from God and take what he heard back out to the people. He was a go-between, going before the Father for the people and before the people on behalf of the Father. Jesus is our high priest (Hebrews 4:14) and through His crucifixion He made it possible for us to go directly to the Father. He is the sacrifice that paid for our sins, once and for all. (Hebrews Hebrews 6:29 & 9:28) Now we can go directly to the Father and present ourselves to Him to hear from Him and enjoy His fellowship. The apostle John said in Revelation 1:6 that through the blood of Jesus we have been made kings and priests to our God. A king rules by decrees. Jesus said that His kingdom was not of this world but that it was in the hearts of men. And He said in Matthew 12:34-37 that what is in the heart will come out of the mouth and we will either be justified or condemned by the words that we speak.

The word that He gives us while we are in His presence is the Rhema word, or spoken word that the Holy Spirit gives to us to apply to our lives. It is then that we can command our morning, or order our day, according to God's word. His word is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, according to Hebrews 4:12. Paul said in Ephesians 6:17, the foundation scripture for this team, that the word of God is the sword of the Spirit. The sword of the Spirit, or the word of God, is what the Holy Spirit gives us in prayer from God's word that applies to our lives at that very moment. We slash the enemy with the spoken word of God. We take command of our lives with the spoken word of God. We order our day and take back the ground that the enemy has stolen from us with the spoken word of God.

What are you speaking over your day? Is is the word of God, filled with power and provision, or is it the negative thoughts of what you hear in your mind or what you see as reality in your life. Change comes as we renew our minds to the word of God. We must think like God thinks and act like He acts. He spoke the world into existence with His words. He set order in the world when it was dark and chaotic. He didn't speak about the darkness, but He called forth the light to dispel the darkness. God's word is light and life. Jesus said His words are spirit and they are life. (John 6:63) We frame our world with our words. (Hebrews 11:3) When Jesus comes back again He will rule the world with the sharp sword which comes out of His mouth. That is His word! (Revelation 19:15) We are to rule with Him at that time.

What are you declaring over your life today that would prepare you to rule and reign with Jesus when He comes back again?

I declare that my words are containers of power, filled with life and today I will speak life over myself, my family, my friends and my ministry! (Proverbs 18:21)

I declare that because I am willing and obedient I will eat the good of the land. (Isaiah 1:19)

I declare that because the Lord Jesus is my shepherd I will fear no evil and His goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life. (Psalm 23:4; 6)

I declare that because Jesus is the Good Shepherd He leads me in the way I should take and I hear His voice clearly. The voice of another I will not follow. (John 10:14; 27)

Today I declare that it's not by might, nor by power, but by God's Spirit within me that I am able to do the things that God has called me to do! (Zechariah 4:6)

I declare that I do not despise the day of small beginnings but I see them as new opportunities for God to grow the work that He has begun in us! (Zechariah 4:10)

Today I see that God is rejoicing in seeing the work begin through us as a team! (Zechariah 4:10)

I declare that God has anointed us to assist Him in His work on this earth! (Zechariah 4:14)

I declare that nothing is impossible with God. (Luke 1:37)

Hi ROADTOXENIA! Thank you for those Scriptures...more favorites! I have so many Scriptures that mean so much, sometimes it's hard to pick just a few. Guess that's why we have to listen for the Holy Spirit to highlight the ones we need on a particular day! emoticon

Yes, very good promises from God's word! I love them! Thanks for sharing them with us. I pray that others will grab hold of them and begin confessing them over themselves as well!

Karen, thank you for sharing your prayer with us. That's a great prayer to us in committing our day and our lives to the Lord. May we all incorporate it into our prayers for the day!

Hi!

Some of my favorites are:

Psalm 4:8 - "I will both lay me down and sleep in peace. For I know that you alone, O'Lord make me dwell in safety."

Numbers 23:19 - "God is not a man, that He should lie. Does He speak and then not act? does He not promise and then fulfill?"

Isaiah 26:3 - "You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is stayed on you, because his trust is in you."

Phil 3:13&14 - "I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it, but one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining towards what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me Heavenward in Christ Jesus."

There are many more but I will stop there.

Be Determined!
God Has It!
Smile It Is The Ultimate Antidepressant!
Life Itself Is The Proper Binge!
The Power Of Life And Death Is In The Tongue!
I Speak Life To You!
I Choose To Be Happy!

Also, when you start your day, ask the Lord to show you or guide you to someone who needs a touch of His love that day... it might be a neighbor on the street that could use a word of hello or encouragement; it might someone on Spark who can use a goodie to remind them that someone is thinking of them and that God loves them.

Try to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit's leading in all things. Pray:

Lord, I commit this day to you. Live Your life and love through me. Help me to show Jesus to those around me, and help me to recognize those You bring across my path to bless. Give me the right words or the right gestures to show them Your love. Thank you, Lord. I praise You for Who You are in Jesus' Name! Amen.

Today I declare that God has brought me to His banqueting table and His banner over me is love. (Song of Solomon 2:4)

God surrounds me with His favor as with a shield. (Psalm 5:12)

I am blessed by God to be a blessing to those around me. (Genesis 12:2)

Because I obey the voice of the Lord I am blessed in all that I set my hand to do! (Deut. 28:1-14)

God's blessings are never meant to be hoarded or kept for ourselves, but to be passed around to those that we come into contact with!

Ask the Lord this one question today: "Father, how can I receive Your love and give it to the next person I meet?"

Yes, Chris, that is a favorite of mine as well. And I say it out loud to myself "I say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my strength. He is my God and in Him will I trust!" The NLT says it as: This I declare of the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I am trusting him.

I like that! Thank you for sharing Chris!

I read all Psalm 91 yd because of an attack. I like v2 particulary. I will say of the Lord,"He is my refuge and my fortress my God in whom I trust."

Jesus bore my sins in His Body on the tree; therefore I am dead to sin and alive unto God and by His stripes I am healed and made whole (1Pet.2:24;Rom.6:11;2Cor.5:21.)

"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes through the Father except through me" John 14:6

Here are some of mine that I use:

The Lord surrounds me with favor as with a shield. Psalm 5:12

I commit my way to the Lord; I roll and repose each care of my load on Him; I trust, lean on, rely on, and am confident in Him, and He will bring it to pass. Psalm 37:5

I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christís sufficiency. Philippians 4:13

For God did not give me a spirit of fear or timidity; of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear; but He has given me a spirit of power, love and of a calm and well-balanced mind, and discipline and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7

Are you proclaiming the promises of God over your life today? Here are mine:

I am more than a conqueror through Him who loves me and I can do all things through His strength! (Romans 8:37 & Philippians 4:13)
The greater One lives inside of me and for that reason there is no weapon that's formed against me that will prosper. (1 John 4:4 & Isaiah 54:17)
When the enemy comes in like a flood the Spirit of the Lord raises up a standard against him through me because I fear the Lord and trust in His name. (Isaiah 59:19)
Because I belong to Jesus Christ and am filled with His Spirit I am anointed by the Holy Spirit with power to go about doing good and healing all who are oppressed of the devil. (Colossians 2:9, 10 & Acts 10:38)

Absolutely Chris! I ditto what Avanell said! Sweet brother, this team is about strengthening each other and also sharing and learning together to grow stronger in Christ, and proclaim and apply God's Word in the face of life's situations.

Chris, don't ever feel you don't know enough. We all started at the beginning and you will learn. The only way to learn is to fellowship with your family in Christ!

Since I am so young Sisters can I come here with a need and hopefully get some suggestions on verses. I truly am learning friends. I have read much of the NT and am on Mathew 5 now.

I don't know many verses except the ones a friend suggested that i read out loud.

If someone doesn't know me or read my introduction I was saved October 2012 so I am pretty new friends.

Jesus bore my sins in His Body on the tree; therefore I am dead to sin and alive unto God and by His stripes I am healed and made whole (1Pet.2:24;Rom.6:11;2Cor.5:21.)

"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes through the Father except through me" John 14:6

What are you declaring over your day?

Today is a NEW day! Today I will let my light so shine before men that they may see my good works and glorify my Father in heaven! (based on Matthew 5:16)

Today I will feed my spirit man the word of God that I might grow strong in the Lord to accomplish all that He desires of me! (Matthew 4:4)

My destiny lies ahead of me not behind me. I will look forward and move toward what God has placed ahead of me. My past does not determine my future! (Philippians 3:12-14)

That's a good verse, Trina. One of the things that I continually pray over myself is to thank the Lord that I am a new creation in Christ Jesus and the old things have been done away with and now I have a new nature fashioned after Christ Jesus and filled with His mind and nature. I am a work in progress but I've definitely come a long way and because Jesus is still working on me I will someday be just like Him!

Another important verse for me is 1 Jn 2:16. I pray this to disarm the devil's approach against my lusts, flesh, and pride, and ask the Lord what He wants me to be, to have, and to do for the day.

Thanks for Ps 91 and 103, I will do that! I am now going through the Psalms. I would like my son to memorize Ps 119.

Thank you, Karen! I have prayed Psalm 91 over my children a lot.

Trina, your son is blessed to have a praying mother. And yes, spiritual battles are where the temporal originates.

Ooops, Bobbie, I meant to say Psalm 103 is a favorite of mine as well!

I too, bring many scriptures into my mind and pray them for when I get anxious and weary! I also more and more have been burdened for my son and pray for him throughout the day. I love that it is called spiritual vitamins! My son is in such need of spiritual vitamins! One thing I have been praying for is for my husband and son for purity of mind! Spiritual battles are so much more important than temporal ones, and I need to keep this in the forefront of my mind!

That is great Karen, and I will be doing the same. It is great that this years VBS is based on that.

Wonderful! Thank you, Avanell - love your spiritual vitamins! - and Bobbie - a wonderful declaration! I too love to pray in my heavenly prayer language!

Recently, the Lord has led me to pray these Scriptures daily over myself and loved ones; I personalize them as prayer and declarations.

Psalm 91 (entire Psalm)

Ephesians 6:10:18: "I am strong in the Lord; I am empowered through my union with Him; I draw my strength from Him - that strength which His boundless might provides.
I put on Godís whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], and so I stand successfully against all the strategies and the deceits of the devil. For I wrestle not with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.

Therefore I put on Godís complete armor, and so I resist and stand my ground on the evil day of danger, and, having done all the crisis demands, I stand firmly in your place. I stand therefore - I hold my ground, having tightened the belt of truth around my waist and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, And having shod my feet with the preparation of the Gospel of peace. I lift up over all the covering shield of saving faith, and so I quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked one. And I take the helmet of salvation and I wield the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God. I pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all manner of prayer and entreaty. To that end I keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints.

2 Corinthians 5:17: I am in Christ; I am a new creation; old things have passed away; all things have become new.

Romans 13:14: I clothe myself with the Lord Jesus Christ, and I make no provision for the flesh.

Thank you, Bobbie! Jude 17 says But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit.

There is a heavenly prayer language available to believers through the baptism of the Holy Spirit that, when used, builds up our faith!

I declare my healing and my freedom from the bondage of the devil and the kingdom of darkness every morning which also makes me free from the bondage of sin ruling and reigning over me because of His shed blood that has paid my way and redeemed me back from the curse of the Law which is the Ten Commandments being replaced by the Spirit of love and grace and also I have the mind of Christ which gives me the wisdom of Father God that is living in my spirit because I now have the new nature of God and I pray in tongues all day long muttering my heavenly prayer language so as to pray out the mysteries and the love secrets from my new spirit into manifestation of my life because praying in the spirit empowers me to live and be led of His truth He has set aside especially for me to be manifested as I pray in His due set time which is perfect and perfected timing from heaven above. In the name of Jesus I pray this every day and I also claim, plead and apply the blood of Jesus over every area of my life and over everyone of my family.

Life is in the blood and without the blood of Jesus we are condemned to live in bondage forever and go to hell.

Romans 14:1,2 Receive one who is weak in the faith, but not to disputes over doubtful things. For one believes he may eat all things, but he who is weak eats only vegetables.

Here are some scriptures that I speak over myself to help in developing my faith. I call them my "Spiritual Vitamins". When read out loud the Word of God enters your heart through two gates, the eye gate and the ear gate. With consistent declaration the spirit man is built up and strengthened. What scriptures are you speaking over your life to strengthen your faith?

I am confident of this very thing, that God has begun a good work in me and He will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. Phil. 1:6

I have the mind of Christ and He has not given me the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 1 Cor. 1:16; 2 Tim. 1:7

I have an anointing from the Holy One and I know all things. And the anointing which I have received from Him abides in me, and teaches me all things that are true and not a lie. 1 John 2:20, 27

The Holy Spirit is my teacher and He guides me into all truth; He does not speak on His own authority but whatever He hears He speaks to me and tells me things to come. John 16:13

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want or lack for any good thing. Ps. 23:1

The Word of God is a lamp unto my feet and a light to my path. Ps. 119:105

I delight myself in the Lord and He gives me the desires of my heart. Ps. 37:4

My steps are ordered of God because I am a good woman and the Lord delights in my way. Though I may fall, I shall not be utterly cast down; For the Lord upholds me with His hand. Ps. 37:23, 24

The Word of God is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword. It pierces my heart and divides between my soul and my spirit. It judges my thoughts and intentions and brings change into my life. Heb. 4:12

I can take authority over the thoughts that come into my mind because my weapons are not carnal but mighty in God to the pulling down of strongholds and God has given me authority over all the power of the enemy and He cannot harm me. 2 Cor. 10:3-5; Luke 10:19

God has delivered me from the power of darkness and conveyed me into the kingdom of the Son of His love. Col. 1:13

My God is my healer. He has sent His word and healed me and delivered me from all my destruction. Ex. 15:26; Ps. 107:20

I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD. Ps. 118:17

No weapon formed against me shall prosper and every tongue that raises up against me in judgment I shall condemn for this is my heritage as a servant of the LORD and He is my righteousness and vindication! Is. 54:17

All my children shall be taught of the LORD and great shall be their peace [their undisturbed composure]. Is. 54:13

My afflictions may be many, but the Lord delivers me out of them all. Ps. 34:19

Because I dwell in the secret place of the Most High and abide under the shadow of the Almighty, I can say of the LORD, "you are my refuge and my fortress. You are my God and it's in You that I trust. Ps. 91:1,2

Because I have made the LORD my refuge and my dwelling place, no evil shall befall me and no plague shall come near my dwelling. And He gives His angels charge over me to keep me in all my ways. They hold me in their hands so I won't stumble and fall on the rocks of life. Ps. 91:9-12

Because I have set my love upon God, He will deliver me. He sets me on high because I have known His name; I know Him personally and understand His character and nature. I call upon Him and He answers me. He is with me in trouble. He delivers me and honors me and satisfies me with long life. And He shows me His salvation. Ps. 91:14-16

When I am afraid, I trust in my God; I praise His word and trust in Him. I will not fear because my God is for me. When I cry out to Him my enemies turn back. Ps. 56:9

My God is greater than anything the devil or the world can throw at me. He has overcome the world and He is the greater One living in me. Because I am in Him and He is in me I have overcome the world and have the victory through my faith in Him. 1 John 4:4; 5:4
