2 Corinthians 10:5 “Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ”
Deliver our children of the words that could bind them to a curse, even if all they have said was as simple as, “I hate going to school!” Lord, the flesh always hates the good, but today we subdue it and place it in obedience to the Son of God.
Acts 4:29-30 (NKJV): “Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.”
Jesus’ Name has power and is accompanied by miracles, signs and wonders. We declare right now that every attack of the enemy comes to naught in Jesus’ Name.
Philippians 4:4 (NLT): “Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice!”
No matter what we face for the day, we have a reason to be joyful. We have a Father who owns the universe, who is everything that we need and who remains faithful to His promises. Thank Him for the joy He has given us...rejoice in Him!
Acts 20:29 – “For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.”
Let our prayer reach Your presence and bring people to acknowledge You. Teach us, Lord, to care for the sheep that You have placed under our care and to be prepared, when the multitudes come.
Matthew 28:18 Then Jesus came and spoke to them saying, “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth”
The only authority the devil can try to exercise is the one that we allow him to have.
Genesis 1:26 (Amplified): "God said, let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness..."
Every one of us has the potential to possess Christ-like qualities and fruits because of our spiritual DNA, which is fashioned after that of our Heavenly Father. So be encouraged that you have the potential inside of you to follow in the footsteps of the Christ-like qualities He exemplified on this earth.
John 13:14 (NKJV) "If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet"
We lead, when people follow us of their own free will. We rule, when people don’t want to follow us. The question we need to ask ourselves is this: Are we leaders or rulers? Let this be the day we take up our mantle of leadership and see the kingdom of God in advance.
John 1:12 "But as many as received Him, He gave to them authority to become the children of God, to those who believe on His name."
Experience the joy of leading a lost soul to Christ, and praying with them to accept Jesus as their Saviour. Determine to be ready to lead others to Jesus, every day.
2 Timothy 3:14 (KJV) "But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;"
Faith goes up the stairs that love has built and looks out the window which hope has opened. God of grace and love, I so badly want faith that is acceptable to the world. Keep me to the things Your Word teaches me. Amen.
