PERSONAL CONFESSIONS

Written by Deborah. Posted in GOD CARES, Holy Spirit, JESUS IS ALIVE, Personal Confessions, Prayer, Seek God, Uncategorized, Waiting, Wisdom, WORDS HAVE POWER

FullSizeRenderYour personal confession broadcasts your real character and sets the course of your life. (See James 3:6) Watch what you allow to come out of your own mouth. Choose to decree what God says in His Word. Be careful not to judge others…because there is always something you don’t know in every situation. Speak God’s Word and stay in alignment with Him!

Print this off or save it, and choose to pray it daily out of your own mouth. Watch God move on your behalf.

CONFESSIONS:  

Jesus is Lord over my spirit, my soul, and my body. (Phil. 2:9-11).

Jesus has been made unto me wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption. I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me. (1 Corinthians 1:30, Phil. 4:13). 

The Lord is my shepherd, I do not want. My God supplies all my need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. (Psalm 23; Phil. 4:19).

I do not fret or have anxiety about anything. I do not have a care. (Phil. 4:6; 1 Peter 5:6,7)

I am the Body of Christ. I am redeemed from the curse, because Jesus bore my sicknesses and carried my diseases in His own body. By His stripes I am healed. I forbid any sickness or disease to operate in my body. Every organ, every tissue of my body functions in the perfection in which God created it to function. I honor God and bring glory to Him in my body. (Gal. 3:13; Matt. 8:17; 1 Peter 2;24, 1 Cor. 6:20).

I have the mind of Christ and hold the thoughts, feelings, and purposes of His heart. (1 Corinthians. 2:16).

I am a believer and not a doubter. I hold fast to my confession of faith. I decide to walk by faith and practice faith. My faith comes from hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Jesus is the author and the developer of my faith. (Hebrews 4:14; Hebrews 11:6; Rom. 10:17; Hebrews 12:2).

The love of God has been shed abroad in my heart by the Holy Spirit and His love abides in me richly. I keep myself in the Kingdom of light, in love, in the Word, and the wicked one touches me NOT. (Rom. 5:5, 1 John 4:16, 1 John 5:18).

I tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy. I take my shield of faith and quench every fiery dart. Greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world. (Psalm 91:13; Ephesians 6:16; 1 John 4:4)

I am delivered from this present evil world. I am seated with Christ in heavenly places. I reside in the Kingdom of God’s dear Son. The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. (Gal. 1:4; Eph. 2:6; Col. 1:13; Rom. 8:2)

I fear NOT for God has given me a spirit of power, of love, and of a sound mind. God is on my side. (2 Tim. 1:7; Rom. 8:31).

I hear the voice of the Good Shepherd. I hear my Father’s voice, and the voice of a stranger I will not follow. I roll my works upon the Lord. I commit and trust them wholly to Him. He will cause my thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and so shall my plans be established and succeed. (John 10:27; Proverbs 16:3).

I am a world overcomer because I am born of God. I represent the Father and Jesus well. I am a useful member in the Body of Christ. I am His workmanship recreated in Christ Jesus. My Father God is all the while effectually at work in me both to will and do His good pleasure. (1 John 5:4,5; Eph. 2:10; Phil. 2:13).

I let the Word dwell in me richly. He Who began a good work in me will continue until the day of Christ. (Col. 3:16; Phil. 1:6).

I thank God He is frustrating all evil plots and ungodly counsel in every area of my life, and over the nation. He goes before me to make every crooked place straight. The Holy Spirit reveals all hidden truth and shows me things to come. 

In Jesus’ Name. Amen. 

Psalm 103:20 reveals that angels obey the voice of God. Pray His Word and expect intervention.

Blessings,

Deborah

LOVE PEOPLE RIGHT WHERE THEY ARE…

Written by Deborah. Posted in and Leaders, Depression, Divorce, Family, FEAR, Fishing for souls, FOLLOWING JESUS, GOD CARES, Guidance, JESUS IS ALIVE, Love, Love people, Marriage, Motive, Obedience, PEACE IN TOUGH TIMES, Repentance, Salvation, Uncategorized, Valentine's Day

IMG_6326If you will choose to love people right where they are—love will light the way. Everyone is on their own journey in life. How does God see a young mother who is struggling with rage, or a young father who is struggling with his temper? How does God view a child who is crying out for help with pain from being bullied at school? 

Jesus paid the price in full for sin—and it is nailed to the cross. God has rescued us from any possibility of a curse. The Bible says so and that settles it. Christ has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law. When he was hung on the cross, he took upon himself the curse for our wrong-doing. For it is written in the Scriptures, “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree”’ (Galatians 3:13). 

That is great news my friends. The powerful truths found in God’s Word are life sustaining and enable us to extend the same life to people who are distraught and caught in the tangled web of sin—no matter if it is their own doing, or someone else’s. None of us have arrived–we have all fallen short of the glory of God. 

When a person knows that someone cares about them, no matter the distance, it’s like a breath of fresh air and rest for the soul. Confession is good for the soul and brings healing. Choose to be a safe place for others to share their hurts so they can move forward to healing. A safe place is where the intent of the heart is for healing and restoration. 

Many Christians wonder will God ever answer their prayers–to heal a relationship, repair a marriage, to bring back a prodigal child, to heal a sibling, to save a lost parent. Many times after we pray, things seem to get worse rather than improve. I’ve got great news– be reassured in the fact that your heavenly Father is at work behind the scenes on your behalf and in the lives for whom you are praying. 

It is time to plant hope in others through Jesus Christ—the Blessed Hope. Learn to love people right where they are in life. If you don’t know how to help them, ask God. He will lead you in the right direction. 

You can’t clean a fish till you catch it ….and God doesn’t expect us to get cleaned up before we come to Him. (That is the beauty of God’s grace and mercy). Choose to intentionally extend grace and mercy to those in need of help. 

God extends open arms to all. Don’t live another day thinking, that just maybe, because one trial hits right after the next, that your life is off course. Take time to turn to God’s Word and read about the trials and tribulations of those who submitted their lives fully to Jesus and followed Him. It wasn’t a rose garden with sweet smelling flowers perfectly lining a yellow brick road. 

God uses our trials and tribulations to prepare us to receive the blessings of His divine favor. He uses trials to position us in new platforms to touch the masses in need of a Savior—His name is JESUS!

Let me tell you one more thing—one of my favorite verses. I remember over twenty years ago how the Holy Spirit led me to a special service at a specific church and I heard a speaker share this verse: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him” (1 Corinthians 2:9). I will never forget that day—hearing that man say, “God changed the entire order of this service for someone to hear this word tonight.”  That is the amazing love of our heavenly Father. Don’t you dare give up. Don’t you dare stop short of all God has for you—keep moving forward IN CHRIST! 

Don’t fall for the trap of Satan and don’t believe his lies. Don’t listen to religious spirits or those who point fingers—turn to our loving Heavenly Father that has open arms for you. Turn to God and His Word—our map for success in life. 

You can become a world changer. God has removed every barrier and limitation to reveal the fullness of His glory in Jesus. “We all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit” (2 Corinthians 3:18). Everything we need comes from God’s presence, and He does not withhold it from us. Choose to renew your mind in the Word of God–read and pray God’s Word.  It’s the only way to experience the transformation God promised in Christ. The River of Life–only found in God–is at work in us to draw the world to JESUS. 

Jesus Christ blesses all who believe in Him with rivers of living water so that we are satisfied in Him and can be a source of blessing and refreshing to others. 

Choose to be fully committed to Jesus. He has great things for you to do WITH HIM. You may be the very one that delivers the greatest love letter ever written–the Bible–to someone in need this upcoming week. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you be more sensitive to His guidance. He will answer that prayer!

HIS love and mine, 

Deborah

WILL YOU TAKE A STAND? The Big Game, Presidential Debate, Election….

Written by Deborah. Posted in and Leaders, Debate, Elections and leaders, FOLLOWING JESUS, Football, JESUS IS ALIVE, PEACE IN TOUGH TIMES, Presidents, Salvation, Uncategorized, Wisdom

dstarczewski_9781498441667_back_covYou have probably sat on the sidelines to watch your favorite football team. You may watch the big game from your sofa or meet at a local restaurant and enjoy friends and food together. But there is a bigger war–between good and evil–that is happening all around us…and it is way too late to sit on the sidelines. 

With all eyes on the presidential debate, it is important that we are open to see the truth. This is probably the most pivotal election of all time. The only other election that takes precedence over all, is the one that matters for all eternity–being born-again from above through Jesus Christ. God wants all people saved. It is not His will that any should perish. 

Instead of assuming and attacking each other, we must rally together in prayer and unity to take a stand for righteousness. Success in life doesn’t matter very much where there is no safety. 

“I ask You, God, to wrap your arms of love around the families and friends of all who have lost loved ones in this war—-right here in America. I decree blind eyes open and light where there is darkness.”

There is always something you don’t know in every situation. Instead of being critics, may we use our voices to cry out to God for all people in this nation. It’s not hard to tell that America is on a moral decline at a high rate of speed. With terror in the streets, and needless casualties of a real war…it is the midnight hour, and we must take a stand.

One man–Elijah–took a stand. He defeated the prophets of Baal. Samson had a come back and destroyed more enemies in his death than he did in his lifetime. Delilah forgot to keep the scissors handy…and Samson’s hair began to grow again. He had a Covenant with God. 

A nation divided will not stand. Satan uses evil tactics to sow division and discord in a nation, in its leaders, in the family, in the church, and in the workplace. He poisons the minds of all who will take his bait. His mode of operation is to create strife and to cause everyone to fight against each other. It’s much like a Trojan Horse…in war..that destroys from within. Satan’s agenda is destruction. 

It’s time to take a stand…for righteousness. If one man named Elijah can make a difference, you can. Jesus used one little boy’s basket lunch to feed a multitude. Whatever we place in God’s hands, He multiplies. 

“Lord, I pray, the Holy Spirit draws us back to YOU as a nation. May revival fires fill every single heart to create a changed life that sparks revival fires in others across the nations.”

We are here on earth to stand beside each other, help when it is in our power to do so, squeeze a hand and listen intently to someone who is grieving, and to be a person who is so empty of self, but alive in Christ, that we feel the other person’s pain and are moved to tears and action like Jesus. 

THE MIDNIGHT HOUR (Will American Turn Back To God?) is a must read for every leader, every pastor, and every person who cares about the next generation to come. God’s Word is coming to pass before our eyes and with all the signs from Heaven we could be the generation that sees the return of Christ! We are called to occupy….to be about the Father’s business…..till Jesus comes! We are called to live like Jesus may come back today, and plan for the future…because no one knows the day or the hour of His return. 

We are not here to be entertained but to live in God’s power and advance His kingdom here on earth. America’s problem is sin–and the remedy is Jesus Christ! 

God wants to use you to advance His purposes and give you a future that is good. God used a man who committed murder (Moses) to lead His people out of slavery, a shepherd boy (David) to kill a giant and he became king, a virgin (Mary) to give birth to our savior Jesus, and a common fisherman (Peter) to lead His church. A man named Saul who had believers murdered, (now Paul after his conversion on the road to Damascus) was the most prolific writer of the New Testament.  If God can use all those mentioned above, God can use you and me!

 *(Excerpt from THE MIDNIGHT HOUR…published 2015). 

Pray with me daily:  God, I thank YOU for frustrating all evil plots and all ungodly counsel. I thank You God that the Holy Spirit reveals ALL hidden truth and shows us things to come. Father God, use me in your purposes here on earth. 

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do”(Ephesians 2:10).
