Promised by the Father

Speak these promises of Truth over your life if, for even just a moment, you feel hopeless, unwanted, unworthy, worn down, or uncertain. Remember to Whom you belong, and cling to The Father’s Truth concerning who you truly are:

You are God’s treasured possession; the praise of His glory!

You are adopted by The Father as one with The Son!

You are promised the imperishable crown of eternal life!

You are a citizen of Heaven!

You have received an inheritance that will never perish, spoil or fade!

Your purpose has been anointed, ordained, and secured!

You are sealed and blessed with the covenant of Grace and Eternity!

You are rescued, ransomed, redeemed, renewed, sanctified, and more fully transformed into The Lord’s image with each passing moment!

You are chosen, holy, special - a royal priesthood - called out of the dark and into the marvelous Light of the Living God!

Hallelujah!

Living In His Lighted Image

Let us live a life that truly reflects our transformation in Christ and the essence of our Father God, whose image we are created in.

A life that is full of love, grace, peace, mercy, forgiveness, joy and freedom.

A lighted life that clearly indicates to others that there IS a Redeemer and a Savior...a real reason for hope in this shattered, decaying world.

May we live in a way that gives weight to our testimony and clearly shows the regenerating power of The Holy Spirit.

May the unbelievers, the broken children of God, see His light as a roaring fire within us...may they find their way home to our Father...and join us in Eternity.

In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Freedom from Fear

God's immutable Word tells that us He has not given us a spirit of fear. Walking in a state of perpetual fear is bondage; a spiritual battle only conquered through God and His truth.

Reacting to protect ourselves from eminent danger is a healthy fear response. In contrast, being a slave to fear produces crippling hopelessness, doubt and uncertainty...all strongholds of the enemy. False emotions beget a faulty belief system, which robs us of our peace and derails us from our authentic path of freedom.

As with any darkness, a spirit of fear is demolished by light and truth...and that Truth is The Word of God. We must don the Sword of The Spirit...read, believe, absorb and apply The Word. "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8:32)

Praise The Lord that He has called us into His marvelous light and that He is with us always!

Joshua 1:8-9
"This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Ephesians 6:17
And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Galatians 5:1
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not be encumbered once more by a yoke of slavery.

John 8:36
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

Romans 8:15
For you did not receive a spirit of slavery that returns you to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship, by whom we cry, "Abba! Father!"

Stepping Back Into His Will



When we drift, we most likely will experience some sort of spiritual crisis. No matter where we may find ourselves in such a painful season as this, we must always remember God’s love for us never changes. His love is perfect and completely independent of our humanity.

As we turn back to Him, we may find there are consequences for stepping out of His will. However, as believers, we can take comfort that there is never an eternal penalty for our sin. The Lord is always mighty to cover us with His comfort, grace, and mercy. And, He alone is the sustainer of our soul and spirit.

When we repent and draw near to The Father, He offers forgiveness, restoration and spiritual renewal. And regardless of the circumstances, He can repurpose our pain. He will equip us to realign our lives with His will, all for His glory. We must have faith and trust Him...as we wait for Him to generously return us to joy of our salvation.

Let us examine and probe our ways, And let us return to the LORD.

Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Supernatural Strength of Endurance

Be courageous and transparent before God. Open up to The LORD regarding your struggles. Give the battle to Him; exchange your struggle for His strength.

Be watchful at all times. Consider the spirit behind the negative emotions and difficult situations you face. The enemy prowls around like a lion and can gain a foothold when we drift.

Put on the full armor of God. Stand boldly on Truth...steadfast and fixed on the Gospel of Jesus.

Be alert and aware of your enemy. But, know with confidence The LORD of hosts is the recipient of your prayers...God is the ultimate authority and the unlimited source of your hope, faith and trust.

Be strong and let your heart take courage. Wait on The LORD...and run your race with supernatural strength of endurance.

From Guilt to Grace


When we find our identity in Christ, we need to fully embrace God's marvelous grace and let go of the guilt and shame of our former self. The Lord seeks to save, redeem, restore, sanctify, transform and bless. Jesus Christ IS the cure for soul sickness. Why receive the imperishable crown of eternal life, and not live to reflect what He deems we are worth?

In His family, we are able to achieve a whole, healed identity...an enriched life blessed with freedom, peace and joy. Jesus paid a high price to provide us with an abundant and fruitful life!

Let us cling to His acceptance and forgiveness!

Let us rejoice that He deems us worthy!

And may we envelope ourselves in His grace, given freely to those who believe and receive Him.

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.

Prayer Warrior


Battles are fought and won on our knees. Through prayer, the door to Heaven’s Throne Room opens and a supernatural, all-powerful response is elicited from The Lord of Hosts. Thus, we gain access to the spiritual realm and power over our enemy and his strongholds.

Pray as a confident warrior, suited up in all your spiritual armor! Engage the enemy with all the authority God has assigned to you through Jesus! Align your thoughts, will, and emotions with The One who created all things seen and unseen. Pray without ceasing and remain steadfast in faith and Truth. Remain patient as The Lord works on your behalf - He has already blessed and protected you in ways you cannot fathom. Draw upon His power and strength! Praise Him and claim the victory in The Name of Jesus!

Brethren, we are called to walk victoriously as confident conquerors in Christ! Stay vigilant, watchful, and close to The Lord. Although we may be subject to attacks, the war is won, and the power of the enemy has already been demolished through the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Hallelujah!

Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
