Wendy and I bless you in this special emphasis for Lent 2016. I declare that you will never be the same again. Today's devotional, "Legal vs. Experiential Ownership," is a great truth to eradicate negativity and ignite positive expectancy in our lives. If we understand what is already ours in Christ, then faith will rise to defeat the giants of discouragement and pessimism that are standing in the way of our promise land.

My favorite quote from this reading is "Peter refers to the 'exceedingly great and precious promises' which were given to us 'that we may be partakers of the divine nature'” (2 Peter 1:4).

Here are some of Wendy’s and my favorite quotes to get you going. (We will probably repeat them later in the 40 days). :-)

  • Hope is the confident expectation that good is coming. It is an overall optimistic attitude about the future based on the goodness and promises of God.
  • Our hopelessness about a problem is a bigger problem than the problem.
  • There are no hopeless circumstances, but only hopeless people. Once people get true hope, the circumstance cannot stay the same.
  • Our hope level determines our influence level.
  • The renewing of the mind with truth ALWAYS brings transformation. It is impossible to renew your mind and not be transformed (Romans 12:2).

A help to do this fast successfully – Read the first few pages and introduction of Igniting Faith in 40 Days. It will give you great ideas for how to maximize this time.


Let's Declare This!

 “I choose to meditate on anything that has virtue or is praiseworthy. I think about things that are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, and of good report!”
