New thoughts feelings

7 01 2018

Day 10 Wednesday January 17

“Lord, please cleanse and make new the way that I think and the way that I feel.”

  • Let the Spirit make new your thoughts and and attitudes. Ephesians 4:23
  • I will bring every thought through a Jesus filter, brought into obedience to Jesus. 2 Corinthians 10:4-5
  • I will set my mind on the things above, not on the things of earth. Colossians 3:2
  • I will not be conformed to this world, but I will be transformed by the renewing of my mind, that I may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2
  • I will not be unwise, but I will understand what the will of the Lord is. Ephesians 5:15-17
  • I will do nothing out of selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind I will esteem others better than myself. Philippians 2:3
  • I will not set my mind on high things, but I will associate with the humble. I will not be wise in my own opinion. Romans 12:16

Lord, today I submit to you. I live for you. I welcome you to help me see anything in my thoughts and/or feelings that does not honor you. Please help me to see you. Help me follow you. Please make my thoughts and emotions new. Today I decide to focus on you. Please fill my thoughts and emotions today. Give me the grace to not live by my own thoughts or emotions, but instead to live based on following you, loving you, and your words!





Faith to overcome

7 01 2018

Day 9 Tuesday January 16

Winning faith – “In God, I have strength beyond the challenge.”

Paul writes in Romans 8:37-39 “…in all this we are more than conquerors, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us,” What does this “more than conquerors” or “overwhelming victory” mean? To be completely and overwhelmingly victorious. To prevail completely.

  • Conquer – to gain the victory        (I did not have the victory, but now I do.)
  • Prevail – to prove superior in strength, to succeed, to win out, strength beyond the challenge.

“In all these things we have complete victory through him who loved us.” Rom 8:37

This means that, with the help of Jesus, you can have strength to outlast your challenge.

Let’s look at a few other verses that carry this truth:

  • I will overcome my enemies because He who is in me is greater than He who is in the world. 1 John 4:4
  • God has not give me a spirit of fear, but of power love and a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
  • With God’s help I will do mighty things.  Psalms 60:12
  • I will be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Ephesians 6:10
  • I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

Winning Faith Statements:

I believe: God is in control. God saved me because He loves me. God will be faithful to complete it.

I believe: I have strength beyond the challenge. I can do all things through Jesus.
