Claiming God’s Promises and Scriptures

by Zig Ziglar

As a child of the King I claim the fruit of the Spirit, which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control; here there is no conflict with the law.

Since I live by faith and follow the Holy Spirit, I will let Him lead me in every part of my life. I will not become conceited or irritate my brothers and sisters in Christ, nor will I be jealous of any of them. I always put on the full armor of God so that I can stand firm against all strategies and tricks of the devil, and I use every piece of God’s armor to resist the enemy in the time of evil, so that after the battle I will still be standing firm. I put on the sturdy belt of truth and body armor of God’s righteousness.

My shoes are the shoes of peace that comes from the Good News, so I am fully prepared. Since I need faith in every battle to stop the fiery arrows aimed at me by Satan, I will also put on my helmet and take the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. I w…

A Letter to God...

Dear God,

I just wanted to take this moment to thank you for being my God. You knew that I wouldn't take the time to seek you. You knew that I would run from your call. You knew that I was going to go against your will on many occasions. You even knew that even after I write this letter to you that I still wouldn't get it right. But God you had a purpose for my life. You created me, crafted me, shaped and molded me into the man I am today. Thank you for entrusting me with the vision, talent, gifting, and relationships that I have.

Speaking of relationships I wanted to specifically for my wife, a true Proverbs 31 woman. She is truly a blessed woman of God. She loves and longs after you. She knows what it means to be a wife and mother. She handles all of her responsiblilites with poise and grace. She's a smart, funny, secure, and confident woman who is also pretty cute too. I can see how much you are working in her life. She is growing each day and it is awesome to be able to …

Why Don't I Listen???

Today I feel very much like Paul.
"We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin.I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me.I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it." -Romans 7:14-20Today I had plans to do two very specific things.Begin writing My Fulfilled LifeWrite a special message to my WifeHowever that did not happen. Even when God directly intervened I still did something other than what I needed to get done. It is amazing to me how everytime I feel down about…

God's Faithfulness...

So many things are going on right now that it is hard for me to even put them into words. I have seen God move in my life before but never like this. I was asked by my Pastor to give the sermon on the 15 of October. I never thought that this day would come. I always knew that God had this for me, even though I spent many years running from it, but now I know that he always does what he says.

He blessed me and those who were able to listen.
