I see and understand my weaknesses, but I rejoice in the fact that I know the Lord who will take my shortcomings and will make me what He wants me to be!
Don't worry about changing who you are. Ask the Lord to make you what He wants you to be. Ask Him to bless you and to change your heart to be obedient to His will.
Break down my fears, Lord, that I may be obedient to your will...
Iíve tried to help you, but you resist me. I listen to what you tell me, but you always get angry when I respond. I guess Iím getting too close to the heart of what is really troubling you. When I get too close, you get mad and react very badly because I must be touching the point within your inner being that is the core of your hurt.
I love you and want to help you. I understand what you are going through and can help you see things for what they really are. You do not let me get too close to you. I try, but you have such a big wall up. I really care for you and want to help you but you keep resisting me.
Let go of the foolish things you are chasing after. They are the wind, and the wind keeps moving.
When you talk to someone, look inside the person's spirit. Look past what you see in the physical and listen to the other person's heart.
I'm not afraid, because God has me in the palm of His hands.
Isnít it great, how you donít need to fear when you follow the Lord!
Get busy doing what God called you to be.
Be clean in your person, that the Lord may bless you.
In purity there is strength.
Stay clean and pure. Wait for God.
Be honorable. Do what is pure and right.
Have a heart for people and their problems.
Are you following the assignment that God as for your life?
God will provide for you what you need as you walk on your journey.
Sin will weaken you.
Be strong and quiet as you wait for your breakthrough to come through.
Leaders are eagles. They fly alone. Fly, fly, fly. Your foundation is in concrete, and it will not break.
In the quiet times recognize the strength that you have.
You know you are in God's will when you are falsely accused, when your motives are questioned. That's the price we pay as Christians. Years ago I used to become sad when people misunderstood me. Now Iíve come to learn it is spiritual warfare.
Before you answer someone in a rage, take a few steps back and get a hold of yourself.
See further than you can see.
Your time clock is not Godís time clock. God has a specific time when He wants you to do things for Him.
You donít need to be concerned about what the world around you is telling you to do. Your goal is to be obedient to the leading of the Holy Spirit, to His will and to His promises.
God has told you which way to walk, and He wants you to walk in obedience.
When you begin to pray, continue to pray through the hills and the valleys.
Tell the Lord that you are available for Him.
Thank the Lord that you are changing. You may not be fully complete, but you are one step closer to complete victory.
You are called of God. His hand is upon you. He is calling you for a purpose. He has chosen you. Will you answer His call?
God has given you your dreams. There is a time and a purpose to them.
Although a dream has not yet been realized or fulfilled does not mean that the dream is not real or possible. If it is of God it will be fulfilled.
God works on you in the pit of despair.
Believe God no matter what.
God does not want you to rest where you are. He is not finished with you yet. He has other things that He wants you to do. He has more for you.
When Godís got you, Heíll never let you go.
God says, ďYouíre mine.Ē
Donít settle back. God wants you to go forward.
Although you may not know how to do what the Lord is calling you to do, just say ďyesĒ. Be obedient to His calling, and He will give you what you need to make it through. Walk in faith.
God will open doors no man can shut, and will shut doors no man can open.
As a believer in Christ, your best days are ahead of you.
Be everything that God has called you to be.
You are a new creature in Christ.
You are loved and accepted, and are someone special in the eyes of Christ.
You have gifts that God has placed inside of you. Nobody can do a certain task the way that you can do.
The Lord is shining on me to provide all of my needs, financial, physical & spiritual.
Anyone can say that they are a Christian, but the proof starts with those who trust in Him no matter what. He has you in the palm of His hands.
Resist the fear that you are not going to get out of the trap that you are in. God knows where you are and has not forsaken you or abandoned you. He knows what you need.
Rejoice in the blessings that are coming your way. Confess them.
Get to know more about God, and learn obedience to His word. In this you will be at peace.
Confess His promises with a fervor that you've never had before. He loves you. His love for you has not changed.
All things are possible for God. Nothing is too hard for Him. It does not matter on what you are feeling, or what you are experiencing.
You were created to give God glory. He cares about you.
Don't worry that you're not who you want to be. God will make you what He wants you to be.
Don't be concerned about your shortcomings. You have no weakness in God.
God will make you what He wants you to be. Quit worrying, struggling, fighting. Lean of Him and His promises and give your life to Him. Go free!
God is my shield and my portion.
Build on the foundation that I have put within you.
Spend time with the Holy Spirit. Tap into your spiritual side. You will be amazed at the conversation that is going on within you.
In the quiet times I find you.
In the quiet times I hear from You, and You refresh my soul.
Tap on what is inside of you. Give it an audience.
Be filled with My Power and My Spirit.
The power that you crave is in God.
Accept the pleasures of life as blessings from God, but donít let them take the place of God.
All of us are born, we live, and then we die. Lord, please prepare my heart to meet You when You call me home.
Let the Word of God refresh you.
As you grow closer to God there will be a struggle within your flesh. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Accept God, and give Him your life.
