I am still listening to the Orange Revival from Elevation Church. Normally, I just listen to the podcasts. This is a great message so I am sharing a link. Elevation Church graciously shared (for Free) each night’s service. I haven’t listened to all of these messages yet but Joyce Meyer’s message and Christine Caine’s messages are worth taking the time to listen to as well.
At the end of this message, Craig Groeschel shares a list of declarations that he says each morning. These are good, so I am typing them up.
- Jesus is first in my life.
- I love my spouse and will lay down my life to serve her/him.
- My children will love God and serve Him with their whole hearts.
- I will nurture, equip, train and empower them to do more for His kingdom than they can think or imagine.
- I love people and believe the best about others.
- I am disciplined.
- Christ in me is stronger than the wrong desires in me.
- I am growing closer to Jesus every day.
- Because of Jesus my family is closer, by body is stronger, my faith is deeper, and my leadership is sharper.
- I am anointed, empowered and equipped to reach people far from God.
- I am creative, innovative, driven, blessed beyond measure because the Holy Spirit dwells within me.
- I develop leaders. It is not what I do, it is who I am.
- My thoughts and imaginations are under the power of Christ. I take thoughts captive to be obedient to Christ.
- I wake up with purpose, direction, and meaning every day of my life.
- Pain is my friend. I rejoice in suffering because Christ suffered for me.
- I bring my best and then some. It is what happens after my best that glorifies God.
- The world will be different and better because I serve Jesus today.
I have been thinking about a 90 day challenge our pastor put forward on Sunday. Making some declarations (maybe these or some version of these) would be a good place to start.
He ended his message by having us say, “Let me see what God can do through me.” The message meshed so well with our pastor’s (Harry Fleming, City Chapel at Slaughter Creek click on the link to listen) message on Sunday. Sometimes the small changes we make in our lives lead to the biggest changes. Let’s do something and “let’s see what God can do through us.”
