Rhett Walker Band – Broken Man
I’ve done a little living
Things I ain’t proud of
And my best intentions
They all turn to dust
Burned some bridges, learned some lessons
Made me who I am today
Somewhere between a sinner and saint
I get lost, I get found
Lose my way, but I turn around
Hit my knees, lift a prayer
Ask for mercy, ask for grace
Then I do the best I can
And I thank God he loves a broken man

better to hated for who you are then loved for who you are not….
the whole bible is about money…
may you all question money with peace mercy and grace to overcome…
James 5:1-6New King James Version (NKJV)
Rich Oppressors Will Be Judged
5 Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you! 2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. 3 Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days. 4 Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth.[a] 5 You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury; you have fattened your hearts as[b] in a day of slaughter. 6 You have condemned, you have murdered the just; he does not resist you.
Matthew 13:24-30New King James Version (NKJV)
The Parable of the Wheat and the Tares
24 Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. 26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. 27 So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ 28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ 29 But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”’”
Matthew 6:19-21New King James Version (NKJV)
Lay Up Treasures in Heaven
19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Luke 16:11-14New King James Version (NKJV)
11 Therefore if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? 12 And if you have not been faithful in what is another man’s, who will give you what is your own?
13 “No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”
The Law, the Prophets, and the Kingdom
14 Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, also heard all these things, and they derided Him.
18 “And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.
Proverbs 10:22New King James Version (NKJV)
22 The blessing of the Lord makes one rich,
And He adds no sorrow with it.
1 Timothy 6:10New King James Version (NKJV)
10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
James 4:4New King James Version (NKJV)
4 Adulterers and[a] adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
did adulterers/adulteress in the bible “dream world” mean soliciting him for fornication… that he might be lured to earn unlawful money.
1 John 2:15New King James Version (NKJV)
Do Not Love the World
15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Matthew 19:21-22New King James Version (NKJV)
21 Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”
22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.
Matthew 13:36-43New King James Version (NKJV)
The Parable of the Tares Explained
36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away and went into the house. And His disciples came to Him, saying, “Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field.”
37 He answered and said to them: “He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. 38 The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one. 39 The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. 40 Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. 41 The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, 42 and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!
Amos 8:4-10English Standard Version (ESV)
4 Hear this, you who trample on the needy
and bring the poor of the land to an end,
5 saying, “When will the new moon be over,
that we may sell grain?
And the Sabbath,
that we may offer wheat for sale,
that we may make the ephah small and the shekel[a] great
and deal deceitfully with false balances,
6 that we may buy the poor for silver
and the needy for a pair of sandals
and sell the chaff of the wheat?”
7 The Lord has sworn by the pride of Jacob:
“Surely I will never forget any of their deeds.
8 Shall not the land tremble on this account,
and everyone mourn who dwells in it,
and all of it rise like the Nile,
and be tossed about and sink again, like the Nile of Egypt?”
9 “And on that day,” declares the Lord God,
“I will make the sun go down at noon
and darken the earth in broad daylight.
10 I will turn your feasts into mourning
and all your songs into lamentation;
I will bring sackcloth on every waist
and baldness on every head;
I will make it like the mourning for an only son
and the end of it like a bitter day.
Isaiah 3:14-15New King James Version (NKJV)
14 The Lord will enter into judgment
With the elders of His people
And His princes:
“For you have eaten up the vineyard;
The plunder of the poor is in your houses.
15 What do you mean by crushing My people
And grinding the faces of the poor?”
Says the Lord God of hosts.
saiah 10:1-4New King James Version (NKJV)
10 “Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees,
Who write misfortune,
Which they have prescribed
2 To rob the needy of justice,
And to take what is right from the poor of My people,
That widows may be their prey,
And that they may rob the fatherless.
3 What will you do in the day of punishment,
And in the desolation which will come from afar?
To whom will you flee for help?
And where will you leave your glory?
4 Without Me they shall bow down among the prisoners,
And they shall fall among the slain.”
For all this His anger is not turned away,
But His hand is stretched out still.
Amos 4:1-3New King James Version (NKJV)
4 Hear this word, you cows of Bashan, who are on the mountain of Samaria,
Who oppress the poor,
Who crush the needy,
Who say to your husbands,[a] “Bring wine, let us drink!”
2 The Lord God has sworn by His holiness:
“Behold, the days shall come upon you
When He will take you away with fishhooks,
And your posterity with fishhooks.
3 You will go out through broken walls,
Each one straight ahead of her,
And you will be cast into Harmon,”
Says the Lord.

Micah 2:1-5New King James Version (NKJV)
Woe to Evildoers
2 Woe to those who devise iniquity,
And work out evil on their beds!
At morning light they practice it,
Because it is in the power of their hand.
2 They covet fields and take them by violence,
Also houses, and seize them.
So they oppress a man and his house,
A man and his inheritance.
3 Therefore thus says the Lord:
“Behold, against this family I am devising disaster,
From which you cannot remove your necks;
Nor shall you walk haughtily,
For this is an evil time.
4 In that day one shall take up a proverb against you,
And lament with a bitter lamentation, saying:
‘We are utterly destroyed!
He has changed the heritage of my people;
How He has removed it from me!
To a turncoat He has divided our fields.’”
5 Therefore you will have no one to determine boundaries[a] by lot
In the assembly of the Lord.
Micah 3:5-11New King James Version (NKJV)
5 Thus says the Lord concerning the prophets
Who make my people stray;
Who chant “Peace”
While they chew with their teeth,
But who prepare war against him
Who puts nothing into their mouths:
6 “Therefore you shall have night without vision,
And you shall have darkness without divination;
The sun shall go down on the prophets,
And the day shall be dark for them.
7 So the seers shall be ashamed,
And the diviners abashed;
Indeed they shall all cover their lips;
For there is no answer from God.”
8 But truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord,
And of justice and might,
To declare to Jacob his transgression
And to Israel his sin.
9 Now hear this,
You heads of the house of Jacob
And rulers of the house of Israel,
Who abhor justice
And pervert all equity,
10 Who build up Zion with bloodshed
And Jerusalem with iniquity:
11 Her heads judge for a bribe,
Her priests teach for pay,
And her prophets divine for money.
Yet they lean on the Lord, and say,
“Is not the Lord among us?
No harm can come upon us.”
1 Timothy 5:8New King James Version (NKJV)
8 But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
Luke 6:38New King James Version (NKJV)
38 Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”

Galatians 2:10New King James Version (NKJV)
10 They desired only that we should remember the poor, the very thing which I also was eager to do.
1 Timothy 5:17-18New King James Version (NKJV)
Honor the Elders
17 Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine. 18 For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain,”[a] and, “The laborer is worthy of his wages.”[b]
if you do not call people anyone what GOD says all humans are…. then you are a liar.
Romans 3:4New King James Version (NKJV)
4 Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar. As it is written:
“That You may be justified in Your words,
And may overcome when You are judged.”[a]

11 I said in my haste,
“All men are liars.”

Philippians 3:3New King James Version (NKJV)
3 For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit,[a] rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh,
yet men come up with vanities to “judege and measure… to divide all things” amoung themselves…through technology… why?
Ecclesiastes 1:14New King James Version (NKJV)
14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and indeed, all is vanity and grasping for the wind.
Nick Lowe – “All Men Are Liars”
I am a witness, Acts 1:8, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” See yourself as a witness for Christ, having many opportunities to share the Gospel.
I am gracious, Luke 4:22, “And all bare Him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of His mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph’s son?” The Word of God says that Jesus spoke gracious words and He obviously was gracious. You are gracious, in Him. Say it to yourself and think it, “I am gracious, in Christ.”
I am thankful, Colossians 3:15, “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.” Consider yourself a grateful individual, thankful to be alive, happy to be alive. Happy to receive all the benefits of the work of Christ for your life, knowing that it is finished, in Him. Amen.
I am a vessel of honor, 2 Timothy 2:21, “If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.” I am a vessel of honor through which God’s gifts and fruit can pour.
I am anointed by His Spirit, 1 John 2:27, “But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.” Know that you are anointed by the Spirit of God, even as God would have you to know as a result of the work Christ. God has placed the anointing of His Spirit in you. That anointing teaches you and others around you. It is through the anointing that the gifts and fruits are dispensed. Amen.
I am made in God’s image, Genesis 1:27, “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.” God made you in his very image. God is beautiful. God is intelligent. God is creative, and He made you in His image. Jesus came to restore that image to you. Receive it. Accept it. Don’t be afraid. It’s O.K. to see yourself made in the image, the very image of God Almighty.
I am visionary, Proverbs 29:18, “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” I have a vision, from God. Say it with your own heart and mind, I have a vision, from God. He gives me insight. He shows me the way He wants me to go. He gives me goals that my life might be enhanced and full of vitality and refreshing times. Thank you, Lord, for vision from your Spirit.
I am healthy, 3 John 1:2, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” The Word of God says above all things that God would have you to be in health, to be prospering, even as your soul prospers.
Count yourself healthy. Say these things to yourself, I am healthy, my heart is strong, my organs are healthy and clean, my metabolism is balanced, my blood sugar is balanced, my thinking is clear, God desires health for my body and I receive health.
Physically I am healthy. Physically I receive only the exact proper weight for my body that God ordained it to carry. I am delivered from excess pounds. I see myself in shape, fit, physically ready, physically sound to carry out God’s vision in my life. I am delivered from toxins in my body and I am translated into total health for God’s plan in my life, for service and enjoyment. Thank you, Lord, that I am in shape, by your grace. I watch what I eat and I exercise properly to keep my body in top condition for you.
By His stripes I was healed, 1 Peter 2:24, “Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” From the very core of my bone marrow to the exterior of my being, my skin tissue is healthy, my eyesight is clear as well as my hearing. I am healthy. Thank you, Lord. Just thank Him for your health. Thank Him for wholeness.
I am whole, 1 Thessalonians 5:23, “And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
I am complete in Christ, Colossians 2:10, “And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.”
I am dead and hid in Him to my old life, Colossians 3:3, “For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God,” and Ephesians 2:6, ” And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.” The devil can’t find me because I am dead and hid in Christ. He is my protector. I am in the shadow of His wings. I am in the cleft of the Rock. I’m hid, in Him and nothing can come nigh unto my dwelling. Read also Psalms 91.
I am a new creation, 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” I am a new creation, old things are past away and all things have become new.
I am resurrected in Him, Romans 6:5, “For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection.” Praise God. My spirit, my soul, my body and me endeavors, my material world, my family, it is all complete. My perspective is right. I have the right perspective and I am confident of that fact, by God’s grace.
I am risen, Colossians 2:12, “Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.” I have resurrection power in my being. Jesus Christ is in me and He has resurrected me from the dead and defeated death itself.
I am prosperous, 3 John 1:2, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” I am a prosperous individual because the Word of God says that I am, in Christ. It permits me and encourages me to prosper. That everything I do will prosper if I will meditate on the Word of God. My life is prosperous and I don’t feel guilty about it because it is God’s good pleasure to give to me the kingdom.
I am successful, Joshua 1:8, “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” I am a success because the successful one dwells in me, and greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world. I am successful. I am dead to failure. Failure simply means to give up. When I seemingly fail, I am one who gets back up and I win.
I am a star, 2 Peter 1:19, “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.” I don’t envy the world, the people in the world or their vain glories. The Day Star is arising in my heart and makes me a star and shares His glory with me. Thank you, Jesus, for sharing your kingdom with me and your inheritance with me.
I am favored, Proverbs 22:1, “A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.” God has favored me because of Jesus. He doesn’t reject me. He is pleased in Jesus and I have received Jesus and through His shed blood I am favored by God.
He loves me for I am loved, John 17:23, “I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.” I receive the love of God. There is nothing that can separate me from the love of my God. For it says in Romans 8:37-39, “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
I am loving, Romans 5:5, “And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.” The love of God is in my heart shed abroad and loving others through me.
I am kind, Romans 12:10, “Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another.” I have the fruits of the spirit in my life. They are manifesting in my life.
I am gentle, Galatians 5:22, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith.”
I am meek, Galatians 5:23, “Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”
I am fearless, 1 John 4:18, “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.” Perfect love casteth out all fear. I have nothing to fear because I am secure in the love of God. God’s love anchors me, it secures me and displaces all fear from me.
I am popular, Acts 2:47, “Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.” I am growing in favor with man and with God. I am popular in the sense that people see the goodness of God in me and love to see the goodness of God and feel the goodness of God in me.
I am wealthy, Deuteronomy 8:18, “But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is He that giveth thee power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.” I am wealthy through the eyes of faith. All my needs have been supplied for God has given me the power to get wealth. I receive it. It is a tool from God to be used in His kingdom.
I am Holy Spirit controlled, Ephesians 5:18, “And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit.” I allow the Holy Spirit to rule in my heart, reign in my heart, guide my heart, and lead me. Holy Spirit of God I see you leading me, I see you guiding me. I receive your guidance. Thank you Holy Spirit for comforting me. I receive your comfort. Praise you, Jesus, for comfort through the Holy Spirit.
I am a winner and a conqueror, Romans 8:37-39, “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” God has made me victorious, even over death itself, the greatest enemy of all mankind. If, through Christ, I have defeated death the greatest foe, than I am altogether victorious over all things.
I am Spirit led, Romans 8:14, “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” God guides my path, He lights my path, He shows me what to do. I receive the leading of the Spirit of God.
I am a giver, 2 Corinthians 9:7, “Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.” I am a giving individual because God loveth a cheerful giver and I give cheerfully because I know that I will reap what I sow. I accept my harvest that I have planted through my giving. I am not going to reject it, nor belittle it, I receive the harvest of my giving.
I am a receiver, Mark 11:24, “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” I receive that harvest. Thank you, Jesus. See your harvest as a corn field on a farm. You have planted your seed and the corn is growing and you have a right to harvest the corn that you have labored to plant, so receive. Receive from God and receive your harvest for it is harvest time for those who sow seed. Psalms 126:5, “They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.”
I am uplifting, Philippians 2:3, “Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.” I am a person who lifts up others through the Word. I encourage them to see God’s best for their life. This helps me to see God’s best for my life (sowing seeds to others to help them see). Thank you, Lord, for sending somebody to me to lift up. I want to be a builder. I want to build your church, Lord. Jesus, I don’t want to be one who tears down through speaking negative things about others or myself. I desire your church to be built up. Jesus, I desire to obey you when you say, Feed my sheep. I desire to be a feeder and an uplifter. Thank you, Lord.
I am chosen, 1 Peter 2:9, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.” I am chosen by God and I am ready to go.
I am delivered, Colossians 1:13, “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.” I am delivered from the power of darkness and I am translated into the kingdom of God’s dear Son. I am delivered from every single thing that has to do with the fall and I am translated into everything that has to do with redemption. I rest in Christ and I receive total deliverance in every dimension of my life.
I am above problems, Ephesians 2:6, “And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.” Because I sit in heavenly places with Christ, by grace through faith, problems don’t bother me. And that puts me above the thoughts of this world. I am an overcomer because of it, now.
I am the head, not the tail, I am above only, not beneath, Deuteronomy 28:13, “And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath.” Though, sometimes on the exterior, it looks like my life is failing, in another dimension I have already succeeded – because God’s Word says to me I am “above only, not beneath; I am the head, not the tail.” Hebrews 4:1, “Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.” Sometimes it seems like things are not the way God would want them but it is a lie because God’s Word is true – above all other truths, above all other thoughts, above all other laws, above all other things. God’s truth reigns in my heart. It is so, so be it.
I am worthy, 2 Corinthians 5:21, “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” I have been made worthy. I am worthy by the blood of the Lamb of God. The devil is overcome in my life because God had made me worthy and when he (the devil) accuses me I just plead the blood. I stand before the Judge of Heaven and plea the blood. I enter my plea. I am worthy. I am worthy because the righteousness of Christ clothes me. He has imputed it to me.
I am righteous, 1 Corinthians 1:30, “But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption,” and Romans 5:17, “For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.”
I am clean, John 15:3, “Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.” I am clean. I don’t receive the feelings of uncleanness. I am clean, by faith in the Word of God. God has declared me clean and what He has called clean, do not call it unclean. Say to yourself, I am clean. Acts 10:15, “And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.”
I am powerful, Ephesians 3:20, “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” I am powerful because the dunamis power of God dwells in my spirit richly.
I am knowledgeable, 2 Peter 1:2, “Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.” I receive the knowledge of the Lord that I have Christ Jesus through His living Word. It increases my ability to see, know and understand who I am, where I am, what I have, and what’s been done in the Son.
I am wise, 2 Timothy 3:15, “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus,” and 1 Corinthians 1:30, “But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.” God’s wisdom is in me and resting upon me. Thank you, Lord, for your wisdom. All glory to you.
I am a prayer person, Ephesians 6:18, “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.” I am a person that likes to pray. I thank God for the opportunity to pray. I thank God for the privilege of praying. What a wonderful opportunity and privilege to intercede and to bring my requests before the throne of grace. According to Ephesians 3:20, “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,” mountains move through my prayer. I have mountain moving ability through my prayer and it is released from me through Him who dwells within me.
I am consistent, 1 Peter 1:10, “Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you.” I do on a daily basis those things that are of a good profession. I am a doer of the work for I am consistent, in Christ.
I am balanced, Colossians 3:15, “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.” I walk in a position of grace through the work of Christ that brings complete balance and stability in all dimensions of my life. I don’t start a project and quit, I see a project through to the end because it is finished in Christ. After that, I continue on to the next assignment God has for me. I am dead in Christ, to moving in any tangential way that is out of the way. Thank you Lord, for balance in my life.
I am charismatic, Romans 12:6, “Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith,” and I John 2:27, “But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in Him.” I have an anointing in me, that abides in me, that flows through me. The Holy Spirit has anointed me.
I am saved, Romans 10:9, That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” I am saved from death and everything that has to do with death – sickness, poverty, disease, depression, confusion, etc. I am saved daily, and I shall be saved, for my mortal body shall put on immortality. 1 Corinthians 15:53, “For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.”
I am sound minded, 2 Timothy 1:7, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” God has given me power, He’s given me love, He’s given me a sound mind. Through the work of Christ, I am dead to fear and resurrected to a sound mind. My mind radiates soundness. My mind is brilliant with soundness and clarity. See yourself facing your day with clarity of mind. You are dead in Christ to confusion and you are resurrected in Christ to soundness of mind. You are dead to dullness and numbness of mind and resurrected to sharpness and clarity. Thank Him now, with your all your heart for a sound mind. Thank Him by praising Him for soundness in this world that tries to fill us with confusion.
I am secure, John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” I am secure because God loved me so much that he sent His only begotten Son that if I would believe on Him I should not perish but have eternal life, everlasting life. I am as secure as one can be. Say and accept that in Christ Jesus you are saved and secure as long as you continue to trust Him, you are saved and will be saved.
I am liberated, Galatians 5:1, “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” I have been set free by the power of God, through the work of Christ and I receive my liberation. Jesus said I shall know the truth and the truth shall make me free.
I am blessed, Psalms 115:15, “Ye are blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth.”
Deuteronomy 28:3-6, “Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store. Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.” I am blessed coming in and I am blessed going out. When I leave my house I am blessed. When I come back to my house I am blessed. I am blessed in my house. I am blessed outside my house. I am blessed when I leave my city. I am blessed when I return. I am blessed when I leave my place of employment. I am blessed when I return to my place of employment. I am blessed when I go on vacation. I am blessed when I return from my vacation. Thank you, Lord, I am blessed wherever I go. Praise God for blessing my life.
I am your temple, 1 Corinthians 3:16, “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” You, Lord, dwell in me.
I am organized, 1 Corinthians 14:40, “Let all things be done decently and in order.” I am organized. There is order in my life because God is orderly and has put the entire universe in order. He has put nature in order and given great balance to all things. Therefore, that order is flooding me and flowing through me into my world, into the surroundings in which God has made me overseer and given me authority. Thank you Father, for order.
I am confident, 1 John 5:14, “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us.” I am able to look a person in the eye with complete confidence. I am calm. I am dead to being afraid and nervous. Therefore, I can be confident in everything that I think, say and do.
I am faith filled, Romans 12:3, “For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.” God has given me enough faith to start my journey toward abundant living. I receive abundant life, through the work of Christ. I place my total trust in His work of redemption to replace mine.
I am skillful in the Word, Matthew 7:28-29, “And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.” God has given me skill in His Word, for Jesus Christ is the Word made flesh and He dwells in me.
I am happy and full of joy, 1 Peter 1:8. Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory. I have joy unspeakable and am full of glory and it gives me strength, for the joy of the Lord is my strength.
I am redeemed, Galatians 3:13, “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.” I was sold into slavery when Adam fell and Satan was my master. Jesus came, redeemed me out of slavery and paid the price to set me free
I am creative, Genesis 1:1-26, I see myself with creative ability according to Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” God created the heaven and earth, He made me in His image and He dwells in me. Therefore, a creative ability is in me and flows through me. I receive my creative abilities.
I am occupying, Luke 19:13, “And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.” I am occupying my ground and I am much like a soldier who has great victory in the army he is serving which is holding that ground that has been taken. Therefore,
I am standing, Ephesians 6:13,14, “And having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, ..” I am standing my ground. I am dead to giving in to the enemy. Thank you, Jesus, for what I have and I am not letting it go. Praise you, Jesus, for it. I hold my ground, and what I have that God has given me, cannot be taken away. Praise God for everything that God has given me, in Christ. I take my stand, now.
I am faithful, Colossians 1:2, “To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” I continue to serve the Lord Jesus, by His grace.
I am obedient, 1 Peter 1:2, “Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.” Through Christ who is in me I have the strength to obey Him. I see myself as an obedient and faithful servant of God. He that is faithful over little shall be given much.
I am prudent, 1 Samuel 16:18, “Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war, and prudent in matters, and a comely person, and the Lord is with him.” I am prudent and wise with my finances and with the things I own. I know how to generate more from what I have. I know how to deal with social situations with poise because of the wisdom and prudence God has given to me.
I am a champion, Hebrews, Chapter 11, I am a champion of faith. Great faith is in me, the faith of Christ, and it makes me a champion. I do step out and do great feats in His name.
I am vibrant, Ephesians 3:20, “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” The dunamis power of God inside of me radiates from me and it makes me brilliant.
I am brilliant, Hebrews 1:7, “And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.” The light of Christ shines from me and makes me brilliant and that brilliance enables me to understand.
I am resilient, Proverbs 24:16, “For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.” If I fall I bounce back. I have resiliency in my spirit and that keeps me moving forward.
I am gifted, Ephesians 4:8, “Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men,” and 1 Corinthians 12:1, “Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.” I have gifts in my life and I release them through resurrection life in Christ. I receive the gifts of the spirit. The gifts of the Spirit operate in me. I seek them and desire them. By God’s grace I know they flow through me. I am a seeker and releaser of the gifts of God.
I am an encourager, Proverbs 25:11, “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.” When others are down, I am encouraging to them. I seek to lift and inspire others through the Word of faith.
I am truthful, Ephesians 4:25, “Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor; for we are members one of another.” I speak the truth in love.
I am miraculous, Mark 16:17-18, “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” I am miraculous. The miraculous power of God is released through my faith.
I am observant, Ephesians 5:14-15, “Wherefore He saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise.” I walk circumspectly and look about me through the eyes of the Spirit and I observe things beyond the surface.
I am perceptive, Matthew 22:18, “But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?” I perceive and discern because Christ is in me seeing beyond the surface of the situation.
I am eternal, John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not die, but have everlasting life.” I have everlasting life.
I am productive, Romans 12:11, “Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord.” My life is very productive and full of activities that produce bountiful things.
I am equipped, 2 Timothy 3:17, “That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” I am fully equipped to do all of the things that I must do for the Lord Jesus Christ, for my family, for my brothers and sisters and my country.
I am fruitful, John 15:16, “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.” I have the fruit of the spirit flowing through me.
I am consecrated, Hebrews 7:28, “For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.” I am separated and dedicated unto God.
I am sanctified, 1 Corinthians 1:30, “But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.” I have been cleansed and purged by Jesus and made ready for His work. He has made sanctification for me, in Him I am separated from the world. I do not try to separate myself from the world, I enter rest in Christ wherein I am separated and sanctified.
I am devoted, Psalms 119:33, “Teach me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.” I am devoted to everything that God would have me be devoted to and in the priority He would have me be devoted to them.
I am special, Ephesians 2:10, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” I am a special individual because God has created me unique. There is no one else in the whole universe like me.
I am encouraged, 1 Samuel 30:6, “And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.” I am dead to discouragement. I am encouraged at every point and stage of any situation for Jesus Christ is in me and greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:4, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
I am courageous, 2 Chronicles 32:7, “Be strong and courageous, be not afraid nor dismayed for the king of Assyria, nor for all the multitude that is with him: for there be more with us than with him.” I am courageous. I have great courage to face any situation for the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, himself, dwells in me and flows through me.
I am jubilant, Nehemiah 8:10, “Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” I have joy in life, I’m jubilant and happy. My days flow with joy. I will rejoice in the Lord each and every day. Thank you, Lord, for my jubilant attitude about life. I see myself going through this day with a jubilant spirit. “This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it,” Psalms 118:24. Philippians 4:4, “Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.”
I am galvanized, 1 John 2:14, “I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.” I have been fortified and alerted by the Word of God.
I am reigning, Romans 5:17, “For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.” In Christ I am made a king and a priest. I am reigning. and I have total victory in Him.
I am dynamic, Revelation 21:6, “And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.” The generating power of God radiates from me. God holds the power of the atom together and He is in me with the kind of power that it takes to do mighty miracles.
I am fervent, James 5:16, “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” I have a fervent prayer life and it is effective.
I am effective, Philemon 1:6, “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.” I am effectively affecting the world around me in tangible ways for the good.
I am fulfilled, Psalms 91:16, “With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.” I see myself fulfilled in my life. My life is fulfilling. God leads and guides me up every path, through every situation, and fulfills me. For I am filled full and my life is complete.
I am free, Romans 8:2, “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.” Even if I were in prison I would still be free. I would be free as one could be, for I am free from my sins and I am free from death. What should it profit a man if he should gain the whole world and lose his soul? (Mark 8:36) Because my soul is delivered from the power of darkness, I am free in Christ.
I am renewed, Romans 6:4, “Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life,” Ephesians 4:23, “And be renewed in the spirit of your mind.,” I walk in resurrection life. The Word of God is renewing my thinking every day and my faith is fully developed in Christ.
I am bold, Proverbs 28:1, “The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” I speak out when I know that I should, and do the things that I am supposed to do even if I am opposed.
I am a believer, Mark 9:23, “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” I am a believer and a receiver, not a doubter and a pouter. I believe I’ve received, therefore I shall have.
I am persistent, Ephesians 6:18, “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.”
I see myself persisting in the things of God and all good endeavors that God has granted me to do.
I am triumphant, 2 Corinthians 2:14, “Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.” Therefore, I am a winner.
I am forthright, Psalms 51:6, “Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.” I am direct, clear and honest in presenting God’s word.
I am tenacious, Hebrews 10:23, “Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised).” I will not let go until I see all I am believing for come to pass.
I am a soul winner, Proverbs 11:30, “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.” The greatest privilege of all is to win a soul. If I could but win one soul to Christ and save them from eternal damnation I have done more than the greatest of feats or exploits that man has ever accomplished. Thank you, Father, for the privilege and wisdom to be a soul winner.
As we close this study of God’s words, lets take a moment and pray.
Father, I give you the glory, right now, the honor and the praise. I am assured of my salvation. May your Holy Spirit touch me right now and bless my spirit as I pray. Father, that you would anoint me with your presence, right now. Fill me and seal all of the I AM’s, in my soul. Drive them deep into my spirit, that I might be profitable and successful in all that I think, say and do. That I would grow and prosper and be in health even as my soul prospers. I thank you for doing it, in Jesus’ name. It is done, in the Son. It is so, so be it. Amen.
Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus, that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
