¨      The problem: there are many negative voices in our personal worlds that can fill our minds with thoughts contrary to the word of God (these can come from family, friends, school, work, the enemy, the world (via any of the media or in person), even church, many times inadvertently).  Our spirits have been reborn; our bodies do what our souls (minds, wills, and emotions) tell them to do. Therefore the battle remains in the soul. We need to reprogram ourselves to think how God thinks. Decide the God’s word is more true than what I see, feel, think, experience, etc. In addition, it is powerful to change us. Is. 55.10-11 “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. 2 Tim. 3.16-17 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. Heb. 4.12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Pr. 4.23 Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.  18.21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit. 23.7 For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he. Col. 3.1-3 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. Rom. 8.5-8, 13 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. Rom. 12.2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. 2 Cor. 10.4-5 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. Eph. 4.22-24 Put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness. Phil. 4.8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. Not mind over matter, but scripture over ‘reality’ or what our senses tell us.

 

¨      How to use this list: read, quote aloud, thank and praise God for, study, memorize, pray, meditate, and sing. In short, fill our minds on the word of God day and night. Josh. 1.8 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. Ps. 1.2-3But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. Ps. 119.9, 11 How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word. Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You. I have access to all of the promises of God in Christ. God says, Yes and So let it be. 2 Cor. 1.20. By which, He has given to me exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these I may be partaker of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust 2 Pet. 1.4..

 

¨      Never again will I confess "I can't", never again will I confess weakness, for I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me Phil. 4.13. The Lord is the strength of my life Ps. 27.1. I that know my God shall be strong and do exploits Dan. 11.32. Blessed am I who walk not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of the scornful; but my delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law I meditate day and night. I shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever I do will prosper Ps. 1.1-3. The Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead, dwells in me, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to my mortal body through His Spirit who dwells in me Rom. 8.11. That He would grant me, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man. Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within me, He is able to accomplish infinitely more than I would ever dare to ask or hope Eph. 3.16, 20. Such confidence as this is mine through Christ before God. Not that I am competent in myself to claim anything for myself, but my competence comes from God. He has made me competent as a minister of a new covenant--not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life 2 Cor. 3.4-6. But I have this treasure in a jar of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from me 2 Cor. 4.7. And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong 2 Cor. 12.9-10. But I have an anointing from the Holy One, and I know.  As for me, the anointing which I received from Him abides in me, and I have no need for anyone to teach me; but as His anointing teaches me about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught me, I abide in Him 1 Jn. 2.20, 27. For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily and I am complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power Col. 2.9-10. For the weapons of my warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God for the pulling down of strongholds 2 Cor. 10.4. I trust in the LORD forever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength Is. 26.4. As my days, so shall my strength be Dt. 33.25.

 

¨      Never again will I confess lack, for My God shall supply all of my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus Phil. 4.19. The Lord is my Shepherd I do not want [Jehovah Rohi] Ps. 23.1, Jn. 10.11. I have given and it is returned unto me -- pressed down, shaken together, and running over Luke 6.38. For I know the grace of my Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for my sakes He became poor, so that I through his poverty might become rich. 2 Cor. 8.9. I have unsearchable riches in Christ Eph. 3.8. God will withhold no good thing from me as I live righteously Ps. 84.11. I receive abundance, more than I need; I am blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Eph. 1.3. He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for me, how will He not also with Him freely give me all things Rom 8.32? Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and am in health, just as your soul prospers 2 Jn. 3. I bring the whole tithe…and I see how God throws open the floodgates of heaven and pours out so much blessing that I do not have room enough for it Mal. 3.10. I who sow bountifully will also reap bountifully. So I give as I purpose in my heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves me, a cheerful giver.  And God is able to make all grace abound toward me, that I, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have abundance for every good work 2 Cor. 9.6-8. And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen [The Lord my Provider] Gen. 22.14. As His divine power has given to me all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called  me by glory and virtue 2 Pet. 1.3. I delight myself also in the Lord, and He shall give me the desires of my heart Ps. 37.4.

 

¨      Never again will I confess fear or confusion, never again will I confess doubt and lack of faith, never again will I confess worries and frustrations, for God has not given me the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind 2 Tim. 1.7. God has dealt to me the measure of faith Rom. 12.3. I cast all my cares upon Him, who cares for me 1 Pet. 5.7. In righteousness I will be established: tyranny will be far from me; I will have nothing to fear, terror will be far removed; it will not come near me Is. 54.14. I will fear no evil for You are with me, Lord, Your word and Your Spirit comfort me Ps. 23.4. I find peace of mind as I keep my mind upon God Is. 26.3. When I am afraid, I will put my trust in God. I will not be afraid of what man can do to me because I trust in the LORD Ps. 56.3, 11. I will not be afraid of bad news because my heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD Ps. 112.7. God is not the author of confusion, but of peace 1 Cor 14.33. I can rejoice in the Lord no matter what the circumstances are. I am anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, I let my requests be known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus. Phil. 4.4, 6-7. Simon Peter, a bondservant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to me who has obtained like precious faith with him by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ 2 Pet. 1.1. This from a man who walked on the water, saw the lame walk, whose shadow healed many and who walked out of jail bonds a free man! I won’t let my heart be troubled I believe in God, I believe also in Jesus. Peace Jesus has left with me, His peace He has given me, and not as the world gives does He give it to me. I won’t let my heart be troubled, neither let it be fearful. John 14.1, 27. Therefore, having been justified by faith, I have peace with God through my Lord Jesus Christ. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in my heart by the Holy Spirit who was given to me Rom. 5.1, 5. Then Gideon built an altar there unto the LORD, and called it Jehovahshalom: unto this day it is yet in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.[The LORD our peace] Judges 6.24. But He was wounded for my transgressions, He was bruised for my iniquities; the chastisement for my peace was upon Him, and by His stripes I am healed Is. 53.5.

 

¨      Never again will I confess supremacy of Satan or the world over my life, never again will I confess defeat, for greater is He that is within me than he that is in the world 1 Jn. 4.4. God always causes me to triumph in Christ Jesus 2 Cor. 2.14. In righteousness I will be established; I will be far from oppression, for I will not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near me. No weapon formed against me shall prosper for my righteousness is of the Lord Is. 54.14, 17. Though I walk in the flesh, I do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of my warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God for the pulling down of strongholds 2 Cor. 10.3,4. And the God of peace will crush Satan under my feet shortly Rom. 16.20. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with me. Amen. The Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom 2 Tim. 4.18. I overcome the accuser by the blood of the Lamb, by the word of my testimony, and not loving my life unto death Rev. 12.11. I take on the whole armor of God, that I may be able to withstand in the evil day. By faith, I am able to quench all of the fiery darts of Satan Eph. 6.13, 16. I am submitted to God and the devil flees from me because I resist him in the NAME of JESUS James 4.6. Christ has redeemed me. Christ has defeated satan, and satan no longer has dominion over me. I have been delivered out of darkness and placed into the kingdom of God Col. 1.13-14. Since I am born of God, I have overcome the world. I have victory over the world through my faith I am the one who overcomes the world, because I believe that Jesus is the Son of God 1 Jn. 5.4, 5. Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over Ps. 23.4-5. In the spirit, I am seated with Christ Jesus in heaven far above all the powers of the enemy. Eph. 2.6. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He will deliver me from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He will cover me with His feathers, and under His wings will I take refuge; His truth shall be my shield and buckler. I will not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at my side, and ten thousand at my right hand; but it shall not come near me: only with my eyes will I look, and see the reward of the wicked. Because I have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, my dwelling place, no evil shall befall me, nor shall any plague come near my dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge over me, to keep me in all my ways. In their hands they shall bear me up, lest I dash my foot against a stone. I shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, the young lion and the serpent I will trample underfoot. “Because I have set my love upon Him, therefore He will deliver me; He will set me on high, because I have known His name. I will call upon Him and He will answer me; He will be with me in trouble. Ps. 91.2-15 Jesus says to me, “whatever I bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever I loose on earth will be loosed in heaven”. Mt. 18.18 These things Jesus has spoken to me, that in Him I may have peace. In the world I will have tribulation; but I’ll be of good cheer, He has overcome the world John 16.33. Who gave Himself for my sins, that He might deliver me from this present evil age, according to the will of my God and Father Gal. 1.4.  For if by the one man's offense death reigned through the one, much more I who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. Rom. 5.17. And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovah nissi: [The LORD my banner] Ex. 17.15. Therefore says the Lord, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will rid myself of my adversaries, and avenge me of my enemies [Lord Sabaoth] Is. 1.24. Behold, Jesus gives me the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt me Lk. 10.19. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil 1 Jn. 3.8.

 

¨      Never again will I confess lack of wisdom or guidance, for Christ Jesus is made unto me wisdom from God 1 Cor. 1.30. I have the mind of Christ. I have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God: that I might know the things that are freely given to me of God.  But, as it is written, eye has not seen, nor ear has heard, neither has entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love Him, but, God has revealed them unto me by His Spirit 1 Cor. 2.9-10, 12, 16. I trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not to my own understanding, in all my ways I (intimately) acknowledge Him and He directs my path Prov. 3.5-6. Your Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path Ps. 119.105. I let the Word of Christ dwell in me richly in all wisdom Col. 3.16. As I meekly engraft God's Word into my life, it saves my mind from thinking wrong thoughts, my will from making wrong decisions, and my heart from feeling wrong emotions Jms. 1.21. I am successful as I meditate on, speak and apply the Word of God in my life Jos. 1.8. And I follow Him, for I know his voice. Yet I will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for I do not know the voice of strangers.” I hear and obey the voice of Jesus Jn.  10.4-5, 27. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide me into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell me things to come Jn. 16.13. God's Word leads me as I walk, keeps me as I sleep, and talks to me when I awake Prov. 6.22. God's Word builds me up and gives me an inheritance among those that are sanctified Acts 20.32. I am being led by the Spirit of God, for I am a son of God Rom. 8.14. Whenever I lack wisdom, I ask of God, who generously gives it to me without reproach Jms. 1.5. And He will bring me by a way that I knew not; He will lead me in paths that I have not known: He will make darkness light before me and crooked things straight. These things will He do for me, and not forsake me Is. 42.16. And my ears shall hear a word behind me, saying, This is the way, walk in it, when I turn to the right hand, and when I turn to the left Is. 30.21. Ps. 23.1 The Lord is my Shepherd - Jehovah Rohi

 

Never again will I confess sickness, for with His stripes I am healed Is. 53.5. Jesus Himself took my infirmities and bore my sickness Mt. 8.17. Jesus was going throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness among the people. The news about Him spread throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all who were ill, those suffering with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, paralytics; and He healed them Mt. 4.23-24. And as I go, preach, saying, 'The kingdom of heaven is at hand.' I heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, and cast out demons. Freely I have received, freely I give Mt. 10.7-8. But she came and began to bow down before Him, saying, Lord, help me! And He answered and said, It is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs. But she said, Yes, Lord; but even the dogs feed on the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. Then Jesus said to her, O woman, your faith is great; it shall be done for you as you wish. And her daughter was healed at once Mt. 15.25-28 (Healing is the children’s bread and I am God’s child!) You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him Acts 10.38. And He Himself bore my sins in His body on the cross, so that I might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds I was healed 1 Pet. 2.24. Bless the Lord, all my soul and forget not all His benefits, Who forgives all my iniquities and Who heals all my diseases Ps. 103.2-3. He sent forth His word and healed me, and delivered me from my destruction Ps. 107.20. And said, If I will diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD my God, and will do that which is right in his sight, and will give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, He will put none of these diseases upon me, which He has brought upon the Egyptians: for He is the LORD that heals me [Jehovah-Rophe] Ex. 15.26. And I will serve the LORD my God, and He shall bless my bread, and my water; and He will take sickness away from the midst of me Ex. 23.25. God be merciful unto me, and bless me; and cause his face to shine upon me; that His way may be known upon earth, His saving health among all nations (that includes me) Psalms 67.1-2. Surely He shall deliver me from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. I will not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flies by day; nor for the pestilence that walks in darkness; nor for the destruction that wastes at noonday. A thousand shall fall at my side and ten thousand at my right hand; but it shall not come nigh me. Only with my eyes shall I behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because I have made the LORD, who is my refuge, even the most High, my habitation; There shall no evil befall me, neither shall any plague come nigh my dwelling Ps. 91.3, 5-10. But unto me that fear His name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and I will go forth, and grow up. Mal. 4.2. I do not let the word depart from my eyes; I keep them in the midst of my heart; for they are life to me who finds them, and health to all my flesh Prov. 4.21-22. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven Mt. 6.10. (There is no sickness in heaven, so I pray for God's will in my life as well as other's, that there should be no sickness!) The Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead, dwells in me, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to my mortal body through His Spirit who dwells in me Rom. 8.11.

 

¨      Never again will I confess loneliness for Jesus said, Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world Mt. 28.20. He will never leave me, nor forsake me Heb. 13.5. And Jesus will ask the Father, and He will give me another Counselor to be with me forever-- the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But I know Him, for He lives with me and will be in me. He will not leave me as an orphan; He will come to me. Jesus replied, "If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love Him, and we will come to Him and make our home with Him. Jn. 14.16-18, 23. I am an adopted child of God Eph. 1.5. For I have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but I have received a spirit of adoption as a son by which I cry out, "Abba! Father!”  The Spirit Himself testifies with my spirit that I am a child of God, and if a child, then an heir also, heir of God and fellow heir with Christ, if indeed I suffer with Him so that I may also be glorified with Him. The Holy Spirit makes intercession for me when I don't know how to pray. If God is for me, who can be against me. The fact is that nothing can separate me from the love of God Rom. 8.15-17, 28, 31, and 35. I am in the hands of Jesus and in the hands God, the Father. Therefore, nothing is able to take me out of God's hands Jn. 10.28-29. In Him I live and move and have my being Acts 17.28! Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in my heart by the Holy Spirit who was given to me Rom. 5.5. I draw near to God and He draws near to me. Jms. 4.8. It was round about eighteen thousand measures: and the name of the city from that day shall be, The LORD is there. [Jehovah Shammah] Eze. 48.35. Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with me Mt. 1.23. And He will walk with me, and will be my God, and I shall be His person Lev. 26.12. You have beset me behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me. Where shall I go from Your spirit? Or where shall I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall Your hand lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me Ps. 139.5, 7-10. And even to my old age He is He; and even to gray hairs will He carry me: He has made, and He will bear; even He will carry, and will deliver me Is. 46.4. The LORD my God in the midst of me is mighty; He will save, He will rejoice over me with joy; He will rest in his love, He will joy over me with singing Zeph. 3.17.

 

¨      Never again will I confess curses or bad luck for Christ has redeemed me from the curse of the law, being made a curse for me, that the blessing of Abraham might come on me through Jesus Christ; that I might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith Gal.  3.13-14. No evil will befall me neither shall any plague come near my dwelling. For the Lord has given His angels charge over me and they keep me in all my ways and in my pathway is life and there is no death Ps. 91.10. All these blessings will come upon me and overtake me because I obey the LORD my God: Blessed shall I be in the city, and blessed shall I be in the country. Blessed shall be the offspring of my body and the produce of my ground and the offspring of my beasts, the increase of my herd and the young of my flock. Blessed shall be my basket and my kneading bowl. Blessed shall I be when I come in, and blessed shall I be when I go out. The LORD shall cause my enemies who rise up against me to be defeated before me; they will come out against me one way and will flee before me seven ways.  The LORD will command the blessing upon me in my barns and in all that I put my hand to, and He will bless me in the land which the LORD my God gives me. The LORD will establish me as a holy person to Himself, as He swore to me, if I keep the commandments of the LORD my God and walk in His ways. So all the peoples of the earth will see that I am called by the name of the LORD, and they will be afraid of me. The LORD will make me abound in prosperity, in the offspring of my body and in the offspring of my beast and in the produce of my ground, in the land which the LORD swore to my fathers to give me. The LORD will open for me His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to my land in its season and to bless all the work of my hand; and I shall lend to many nations, but I shall not borrow. The LORD will make me the head and not the tail, and I only will be above, and I will not be underneath, because I listen to the commandments of the LORD my God to observe them carefully Dt. 28.2-13. I have victory over poverty, sickness, and spiritual death. In the fear of the LORD is my strong confidence: and I shall have a place of refuge Prov. 14.26.

 

¨      Never again will I confess discontent or depression because I have learned, in whatsoever state or circumstances. I am content Phil. 4.11. He has borne my griefs and carried my sorrows Is. 53.4. With joy, I shall draw water out of the wells of salvation Is. 12.3. God will keep that which I have committed unto Him until the Day of Judgment 2 Tim. 1.12. I know that God is working all things together for my good and His glory. For I, whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover I, whom He predestined, He also called; I whom He called, He also justified; and I whom He justified, He also glorified. Rom. 8.28-30. But the fruit of the Spirit (who is in me) is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law Gal 5.22-23. But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head Ps. 3.3.I have firmly in place the helmet of the hope of salvation Eph, 6.17, 1 Thes. 5.8. Now may the Lord Jesus Christ and my God and Father, who has loved me and given me everlasting consolation and good hope by grace, comfort my heart and establish me in every good word and work 2 Thes. 2.16-17. Blessed be the God and Father of my Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Mercies and God of all comfort, Who comforts me in all my tribulation, that I may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which I, myself have been comforted by God 2 Cor. 1.3-4. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in my heart by the Holy Spirit who was given to me Rom. 5.1, 5. For God is not unrighteous to forget my work and labor of love, which I have showed toward his name, in that I have ministered to the saints, and do minister. And desire that I do show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end. That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, I might have strong consolation, who has fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before me. Which hope I have as an Anchor Of My Soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters into that within the veil Heb. 6.10-11, 18-19. Now the God Of Hope fill me with all joy and peace in believing, that I may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost Rom. 15.13. 1 1 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope Jer. 29.11.

 

¨      Never again will I confess unworthiness or condemnation because He has made Him to be sin for me who knew no sin; that I might be made the righteousness of God in Him 2 Cor. 5.21. Because of the righteousness that I have in Christ, I am fully accepted of God Eph. 1.6. I am an heir of God and a joint-heir with Christ. What the Father gave to Jesus also belongs to me Rom. 8.17. God's complete love for me casts out the fear of judgment 1 Jn. 4.18. I have bold access to the throne of God to find mercy and grace in time of need Heb. 4.16. I am confident that since God began his good work in me that He will continue that work until the day of Jesus Christ Phil. 1.6. There is therefore now no condemnation to me who is in Christ Jesus Rom. 8.1. Giving thanks to the Father who has qualified me to be a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in the light Col. 1.12. I sanctify myself therefore, and am holy: for He is the LORD my God. And I will keep His statutes, and do them: He is the LORD who sanctifies me [Jehovah-M’kaddesh] Lev. 20.7-8. In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby He shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS [Jehovah Tsidkenu] Jer. 23.6. By which will I am sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. For by one offering He has perfected me forever that is sanctified. Heb. 10.10, 14.The Lord will perfect that which concerns me Ps. 138.8. Therefore, having been justified by faith, I have peace with God through my Lord Jesus Christ Rom. 5.1, Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over my sins that were previously committed Rom. 3.24-25, And such was I. But I was washed, but I was sanctified, but I was justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Cor. 6.11. For by grace I have been saved through faith, and that not of myself; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest I should boast Eph. 2.8-9. Not by works of righteousness which I have done, but according to His mercy He saved me, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit Tit. 3.5. But to me who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, my faith is accounted for righteousness, just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works: “Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, And whose sins are covered; blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.” Rom. 4.5-8 Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified me, made me worthy to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light Col. 1.12 I fix my eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of my faith Heb. 12.2.

 

¨      Never again will I confess lack of purpose or destiny for the Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound Is 61.1. Then Jesus came and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Mt. 28.18-20 And He said to me, Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. These signs will accompany me who has believed. In His name I will cast out demons, I will speak with new tongues; I will pick up serpents, and if I drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt me; I will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover Mk. 16.15-18. As the Father has sent Jesus, He is sending me." If I forgive anyone their sins, they are forgiven; if I do not forgive them, they are not forgiven." Jn. 20.21, 23. But I will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on me; and I will be his witness in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Acts 1.8 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled me to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given me the ministry of reconciliation, and has committed to me the word of reconciliation. Now then, I am an ambassador for Christ, as though God were pleading through me: I implore others on Christ’s behalf to be reconciled to God. 2 Cor. 5.18-20. I am the light of the world, giving off the light Christ. I am the salt that gives life flavor and the salt that preserves purity Mt. 5.13-14. 29 I let no corrupt word proceed out of my mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers Eph. 4.29. I am able to walk in the light as a child of the light Eph. 5.8. I am God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works Eph 2.10. I also, as a living stone, am being built up a spiritual house, a holy priest, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.  I am a chosen person, a part of a kingly priesthood, a holy nation, and a God-possessed person that declares the praises of God who has called me out of darkness unto to his marvelous light I Pet. 2.5, 9. I am a sweet aroma of Christ unto God 2 Cor. 2.15. "I abide in Him, and He in me. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can I unless I abide in Him. "He is the vine, I am a branch; I who abide in Him and He in me, I bear much fruit, for apart from Him I can do nothing. God has chosen me and ordained me that I should go and bring forth much lasting fruit. Jn. 15.4-5, 16. I wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places Eph. 6.13. I fight the good fight of faith…to which I was called 1 Tim. 6.12. I endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. I don’t entangle myself with the affairs of this life, that I may please Him who enlisted me as a soldier 2 Tim. 2.2-3. 17 Because as He is, so am I in this world 1 Jn. 4.17. So God sought for me among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Him on behalf of the land, that He should not destroy it Eze. 22.30. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to me for the profit of all: for to me is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, the word of knowledge, faith, gifts of healings, the working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, different kinds of tongues, the interpretation of tongues 1 Cor. 12.7-10. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to me, use them: if prophecy, prophesy in proportion to faith; or ministry, use it in ministering; teaches, in teaching; exhorts, in exhortation; gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness Rom. 12.6-8. And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. But, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ (the head orchestrates where my place is in the body) Eph. 4.11-13, 15. As I have received a gift, minister it to one another, as a good steward of the manifold grace of God. If I speaks, speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever 1 Pet. 4.11-12. But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking me to worship Him. God is Spirit, and I who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth Jn. 4.23-24.” Such confidence as this is mine through Christ before God. Not that I am competent in myself to claim anything for myself, but my competence comes from God. He has made me competent as a minister of a new covenant--not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 2 Cor. 3.4-6

 

¨      Never again will I confess my old man’s rule in my life, never again will I confess bondage for I was spiritually dead to the things of God. I was actually dead in my spirit, but I have been made alive by the spirit of Christ Eph. 2.5. I am set apart from the world unto the living God; therefore, I am a saint I Cor. 1.2. God has predestined that I be formed into the image of Jesus Christ Rom. 8.29. God is working in me both to will and to do of His good pleasure Phil. 2.13. I have put on the new man, which is created in the image of God. I actually have the divine nature of God dwelling within me 2 Pet. 1.4. God has elected me to be holy and to receive His love Col. 3.10, 12. My inner man is renewed every day 2 Cor. 4.16. 20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. Gal. 2.20. I am washed, sanctified, and justified by the name of Jesus and the Spirit of God. My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit purchased with a price 1 Cor. 6.11, 19-20. I'm a new creation; I'm a brand new person. Old things are passed away, behold all things have become new 2 Cor. 5.17. In Christ, I am complete; therefore, I need nothing more Col. 2.10. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But I, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, am being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord 2 Cor. 3.17-18. For the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death Rom. 8.2. I have been made free from the power of sin and have become a servant of righteousness Rom. 6.18. It was for freedom that Christ set me free; therefore I keep standing firm and am not be subject again to a yoke of slavery. For I was called to freedom, so I do not turn freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love I serve others. As I walk in the Spirit, I do not fulfill the lusts of the flesh Gal. 5.1, 13, 16. And I know the truth, and the truth makes me free.” Therefore the Son makes me free, I am free indeed. Jn. 8.32, 36. No temptation has overtaken me but such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow me to be tempted beyond what I am able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape, that I may be able to endure it 1 Cor. 10.13. Put off, concerning my former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of my mind, and that I put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness Eph. 4.22-24. O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God. 7.23-25. By which, He has given to me exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these I may be partaker of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust 2 Pet. 1.4.
