Overcoming Compulsive Behavior

September 30, 2006

Father, by the grace You have imparted to me, I will test my own actions, and then I will have reason for boasting in regard to myself alone, not comparing myself to anyone else. My importance and approval comes from You. I humble myself in Your sight and You will raise me up and cause my life to be significant in the name of Jesus. I am complete in You. Amen.

Releasing Cares

September 29, 2006

In the name of Jesus, I cast all my anxiety on God, my Father, because He cares for me. I am self-controlled and alert. The devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. By the power of the Holy Spirit, I resist him, standing firm in the faith…And the God of all grace, who called me to His eternal glory in Christ, after I have suffered a little while, will Himself restore me and make me strong, firm and steadfast. Thank you, Father, in the name that is above all names—JESUS! Amen.

Overcoming Fear of Rejection

September 28, 2006

Father, even though others may reject me, I am totally accepted by You. Once I was alienated from You, my God, and I was an enemy in my mind because of my evil behavior. But now You have reconciled me by Christ’s physical body through death to present me holy…without blemish and free from accusation. You are awesome and altogether lovely. In the name of Jesus, I resist the temptation to receive the rejection of others by remembering that You have accepted and approved of me. Amen.

Delivered

September 27, 2006

Today, I give thanks unto the Father…who has delivered me from the power of darkness, and has translated me into the kingdom of His dear Son. You brought me forth with joy and gladness. I live in the kingdom of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Once I was darkness, but now I am shining light in the Lord, and my goal is to live as a child of light in the name of Jesus. Amen.

In A Time Of Trouble

September 26, 2006

When I call, give me answers. God, take my side! Once, in a tight place, You gave me room; now I’m in trouble again: grace me! Hear me! In my anger I will not sin; when I’m on my bed, I will search my heart and be silent. My trust is in You, Jehovah, my LORD. Let the light of Your face shine upon me. Thank You for filling my heart with great joy. I will lie down and sleep in peace, for You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety. Amen.

Saved By Grace

September 25, 2006

My performance and the opinion of others did not save me. It is by grace that I am saved through faith; and that not of myself: it is the gift of God. Not by works of righteousness, which I have done, but according to Your mercy You saved me, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; which You shed on me abundantly through Jesus Christ my Savior; that being justified by grace, I should be made an heir according to the hope of eternal life. Thank You Father-God for Your tender mercies and lovingkindness. Amen.

Overcoming a Compulsion to Please People

September 24, 2006

Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe. In the name of Jesus I cast down the compulsion to please people. Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ. Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: see if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Amen.

The Father's Love

September 23, 2006

Father, I thank You for the great love You have bestowed upon me, that I should be called a child of God! I submit to Your Word that is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of my heart. In the name of Jesus I repent and renounce anger, bitterness and depression. In the name of Jesus, I look inside that I might experience Your love that is imparted to me. Amen.

Free From Condemnation

September 22, 2006

Thank You for releasing me from guilt and shame. I am in Christ Jesus, walking not after the flesh, but after the Spirit, and I am no longer under condemnation. I am blessed; my iniquities are forgiven, and my sins covered. The Lord is not bringing any charge against me. You are not counting my sin against me, and in my spirit is no deceit. Thank You for giving me the grace to accept and forgive myself for I am wonderfully made. In the name of Jesus, You are my Creator. Amen.

Identified With Christ (Continued)

September 21, 2006

Father, I thank You for sending Your Son to redeem me from the curse of the law. In him I have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of my trespasses, according to the riches of Your grace. I was included in Christ when I heard the word of truth, the gospel of my salvation. Having believed, I was marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, a deposit guaranteeing my inheritance until the redemption of those who are Your possession–to the praise of Your glory. It is Christ in me the hope of glory! Amen.
