I love to rejoice in the fact that God is happy. Joy is who He is, so rejoicing is our response to who He is!
God wants to remove a poverty spirit from your heart. A poverty spirit keeps you trapped in a lower form of being. It is not about economic deficiency. True poverty is the acceptance of meager possibility. There can be a poverty of imagination, a deficiency of courage, a death in personal vision, a barrenness in the will that keeps you passive and beaten down. Poverty is accepting a limitation and being governed by lack. God has placed provision, not where you stand, but in the place you are about to tread. It’s in front of you, Beloved, one step ahead of a poverty mindset! (from Coming Into Alignment)
God doesn't call you to a ministry. He calls you to a relationship, and in that relationship you learn step by step, situation by situation, what God is like, what He will do, and how He will do it through you. That is how we all learn to partner with God in life. We don't have a life and a ministry. We just have a life! (from The Church Has Left The Building)
"Don’t be disheartened about anything. We may be curious about how God is going to make everything work, but we know that He will!"
If all you ever do is attack a difficult person’s behavior, you’re never going to be able to set them free to become who they really are. Accountability is not calling someone out on his or her behavior; it means calling them up to their true identity. (from Brilliant Leadership)
By moving in the fruit of the Spirit you can seriously affect the enemy and release yourself into power at the same time. You can exhaust the enemy with your love for people. You can depress him by learning joy. You can tire him by becoming peace. You can demoralize him with patience. You can discourage him with kindness. You can overcome him with goodness. You can debilitate him with acts of faithfulness. You can dismay him with self-control. You can dishearten him with faith. You can weaken him with mercy. You can intimidate him with your intimacy.
