Series 1, Episode 5: Abiding in His Presence [Podcast]

Welcome to Series 1, Episode 5 of The Destiny Podcast. In this recording, Verge Ascabano shares about the importance of the heart in abiding in God’s presence. This is Day 5 of our 21-Days of Fire series.

Podcast Covers - 21DOF

In his repentance, David shared with us a revelation and the key to abiding in the presence of God – a broken and contrite heart. Humility and brokenness is not something we can ask from God; it is a conscious decision and effort to cultivate our intimacy with Him.

Key Points

•  Key Verses – Psalm 51:10-12, 15-17; John 15

•  A broken and contrite heart is important in going into the presence of God.

•  All kingdom matters are matters of the heart. When we come before God in prayer, it is important that our hearts are tender and humbled before God.

•  Humility is a decision. It is not something we can ask God to give us.

•  We have to continuously and consciously go back to the place of staying hungry and broken for God.

•  Allow God to deal with your heart. Is your heart hardened? Does it need cleansing from weeds and stones?

•  God is looking for hearts who are constantly and passionately seeking Him.

•  God’s desire is for us to be fruitful. Fruitfulness can be found only when we abide in Jesus.

•  Jesus invites us to a life intimately joined with Him.

•  Our intimacy with God is seen in our obedience.

•  It is our task to continuously cultivate an intimate heart with the Father.

•  God designed us to be in that place of fellowship and communion with Him. He placed Adam and Eve at the center of Eden, literally “God’s delight”.

•  Make it a conscious choice to be fully engaged with God to be intimate with Him.

Memory Verse

John 15:5

“I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.”

Series 1, Episode 4: The Heart of Intercession [Podcast]

Welcome to Series 1, Episode 4 of The Destiny Podcast. In this recording, Verge Ascabano shares about the heart of intercession. This is Day 4 of our 21-Days of Fire series.

Day 1 - Humility-4

Before Jesus ascended, he left his disciples with the promise of the Holy Spirit. They prayed with one passion, and received the promise at the day of Pentecost. In the same way, Destiny was started and rooted in intercession, with hungry hearts passionately seeking one thing — the presence of God.

Key Points

•  Verses: Acts 1:4, Matthew 11:11, Acts 2:42

•  Jesus describes us as greater than John the Baptist. John had the Holy Spirit upon him, but we have the Holy Spirit in us.

•  After Jesus left, the disciples were united in prayer, every day for 10 days. Gripped with one passion, interceding night and day.

•  The heart of intercession is in the context of Jesus’ promise: The Holy Spirit. Because of this, the disciples were united in prayer.

•  When we pray with one passion, our prayers are powerful.

•  The disciples were consistent because they were waiting for a coming promise. This is why we pray, we contend for God’s promises for us.

•  The pillar of fire came and separated into tongues of fire, and suddenly, God is not just a pillar of fire anymore. The Spirit of God dwells inside each and every one of us.

•  The tongues of fire from God allows us to speak in boldness. The fear of the Lord came upon everyone.

•  After the day of Pentecost, the disciples and followers continued to pray and gather. They already received the promise but they never stopped there.

•  Our desire is for the Holy Spirit and the fire of God to continuously fill us. We can never fulfill God’s call without the Holy Spirit.

•  We are praying for a promise. There has to be a pursuit. What are you contending for?

Memory Verse

Acts 1:14

“All of them were united in prayer, gripped with one passion, interceding night and day.”

Series 1, Episode 3: The Violence of Faith [Podcast]

Welcome to Series 1, Episode 3 of The Destiny Podcast. In this recording, Paul Yadao shares about the violence of faith. This is Day 3 of our 21-Days of Fire series.

Day 1 - Humility-3

The Destiny movement is rooted in humility, brokenness, reverential worship, fear of the Lord, and radical service to Him. With violent faith, students would pray at the right side of the library with loud cries, contending for revival in the campus and claiming nations as inheritance. This is the kind of faith that cannot be denied.

Listen to the Message by Paul Yadao

Download the mp3 (right click and save link as)

Key Points

•  Verses: Hebrews 5:7-9; Matthew 11:1-18

•  Faith has many facets. One side of faith is child-like faith, but there is a side of faith that sees the promises of God and takes hold of and contends for them violently.

•  Even Jesus prayed with loud crying and tears, and He was heard because of His reverential fear. He was a Son, but he learned obedience in the things He suffered.

•  Violent faith is anchored in humility and total dependence on God.

•  History is filled with people with violent faith. From Moses and Jacob, to Charles Finney, Bill Johnson, and Heidi Baker – men and women would pray and intercede for months, contending for the presence and fire of God.

•  There is a portion of our inheritance that we receive freely, but we can only expand something that we own and fight for. Whatever we hold loosely will be taken from us.

•  One of the greatest blocks to revival is offense. When leaders are offended, revival stops. We cannot exercise violence of Godly faith if we are offended.

•  Offense will come to all. When you entertain offense, the favour is blocked. You cannot see the works of God, and you cannot rejoice and embrace the new season, just like a prisoner locked up.

•  We are offended because we are trying to find a place that is not ours. We have a place in the kingdom of God. It is God who gives us that place, and it is God who will bless us in that place.

•  Let go of offense. This church is not ours; this is the church of God. We serve the Lord.

•  The only valid response to any offense is honor. Jesus never undermined the ministry of John the Baptist but honoured him. The only way we can be entrusted with the kingdom is to honor.

•  ”There is no one like John, but he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.” This is our place. Jesus placed the new generation in a much higher place. God takes residence inside of us.

•  The violent in faith are the ones entrusted with kingdom expansion, those who do not passively ask.

•  We are far more greater than John the Baptist. What is that “more”? What can we access in the kingdom of God? What can we do knowing that our platform is higher than our forefathers?

•  The degree of your violence in faith is the degree of your breakthrough. Will you pay the price?

Memory Verse

Matthews 11:12

“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.”

Series 1, Episode 2: Humility is a Choice [Podcast]

Welcome to Series 1, Episode 2 of The Destiny Podcast. In this recording, Paul Yadao shares about how humility is a choice in our walk with God. This is Day 2 of our 21 Days of Fire series.

Day 1 - Humility-2

Humility guarantees sustainability. However, a humble heart does not develop overnight, but is a product of consistent decision to remain humble in the sight of God.

Listen to the Message by Paul Yadao

Download the mp3 (right click and save link as)

 

Key Points

•  Verses: 1 Peter 5:5, Matthew 5:1-3

•  Prayer is not automatic. We need to press in for the presence of God.

•  There is no end to the practice of humility. Humility is a foundation.

•  When we posture our hearts towards humility, the grace and favor of God rests upon us.

•  Humility is like a cloak. You either choose to wear it or you don’t.

•  God gives grace to the humble. Exaltation comes after humility.

•  Humility is our doorway to kingdom promotion.

•  Humility causes us to be dependent on and sensitive to the Spirit.

•  Humility is the key to wisdom, whereas pride leads to foolishness.

•  In serving God, we have to see the vision of God, and go up to the mountain and seek an encounter with Him.

•  The journey into the mountain is a journey that prepares us for the encounter and the power released after that encounter.

•  There is a price to pay if you want to see God move.

•  If you want to see more of God, the key is to be spiritually bankrupt.

•  Humility guarantees sustainability.

•  Sometimes the greatest test in humility is when we are constantly winning our battles. Keeping your heart humble is a choice.

•  Humble yourself in the sight of God, and then before His people.

Memory Verse

Matthew 5:3

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

The Destiny Podcast, Season 1, Episodes 1-7 [Podcast]

Welcome to the first season of The Destiny Podcast. The messages in Season 1 were all taken from our 21 Days of Fire prayer and fasting campaign. They were recorded raw at the daily dawn prayer meetings at the right side of the UPLB Main Library, where the revival started.

21DOF Title Page-2

In the 90’s, students would gather in this place 5:30 in the morning to pray for revival. Daily they cried out to God to change their hearts and for God to use them to change the campus, the nation, and the nations of the world. This is how the movement of Destiny started.

In this season, we’re going back to our roots to cultivate the fire that started there so that we can steward it and take it to the next level.

You can listen to episodes 1 to 7 here in “batch mode”. Then once a week, we’ll publish each episode together with some notes and key points from the message. You’ll find it at the News Feed section every Friday Monday. If you don’t want to miss a single episode, click here to subscribe.

Is There Something Wrong with My Faith? (Keys to Believing Again)

|Verge Ascabano|

 

They say miracles do happen when you believe. But why is it that some prayers are answered while some are not, even if you believed in God? Why is it that even though you’ve prayed hard enough you still didn’t get your healing? Why is it that even when you believed God can help you solve your problems, you’re still in despair? Why is it that faith seems to work at times but most of the time it doesn’t? Is there something wrong?

I may not have all the answers you seek but let me help you by diving deeper into the idea of faith and believing. How much faith do you need to have in order to see results? How much believing do you need to do?

Roman Centurion

Let’s look into the story of the Roman centurion during the time of Jesus and see if we can get some insights about faith. Matthew tells us the story.

Matthew 8:5-13:

5 When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. 6 “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly.”

7 Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?”

8 The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed.

Notice the centurion’s faith. To him, there was no question that Jesus heals. He was not there to see if Jesus could indeed heal his servant. He knows as a fact (and reckons it as his reality) that his servant would be healed when Jesus says the word.

9 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

10 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.

Jesus was amazed by the centurion’s faith.

13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that moment. (emphasis mine)

This is powerful. The servant was healed the very moment Jesus spoke the word.

As You Believe so shall It be

So it happened just as the centurion believed it would. If he believed that Jesus will have to go and lay his hands on the servant then that’s what he would get.

Believing is a matter of accepting what’s real. Even if you say you believe but if in your heart it’s not real, then that’s not faith. It’s a matter of the heart.

In another instance, Jesus was teaching His disciples about faith.

Mark 11:22-24:

22 “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered.

23 “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.

24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. (emphasis mine)

Without a Doubt

Faith is about believing without a doubt in your heart. You may say that you believe but if there’s doubt in your heart then there’s unbelief. So faith then is all about removing any unbelief in your heart. It’s all about the heart.

You may be praying for quite some time now and you’re still not getting the results you’re seeking. Why do you think this is so? Maybe God has been speaking to you while you were reading this article. Search your heart and see if there’s still doubt remaining. Allow Him to illuminate your heart so that you may see clearly.

You may say you believe in God but in actuality your life doesn’t reflect having faith in Him. Or you may not believe in all these stuff at all but you want to start believing. What should you do?

Decide

Believing is a decision. Start with a simple prayer. First, acknowledge that you don’t have faith in God. Then ask Him to change your heart so that you may believe again. The very act of praying this prayer is evidence that you’re making a decision to believe in Him. Continue to pray and whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

It’s so good to believe in God. It’s the most radical thing you could ever do in your life. Imagine a life filled with faith instead of doubt and unbelief. It’s a life of freedom and victory. It’s a life full of endless possibilities. It’s a life where nothing is impossible.

The Radical Mindset: How to Get ‘Unstuck’ in Life

|Verge Ascabano|

 

Have you ever been stuck in a problem? Have you ever been in a bad situation where you just couldn’t seem to find any way out of?

stuck

Photo Credit: David Chartier via Compfight cc

I recently saw a video on the internet about a person who couldn’t remove his ring from his finger. He tried so many different ways of getting it out but nothing was working. Then there’s this guy who offers him a solution. It was so simple. He used a dental floss and slipped one end of it under the ring. He wrapped the string around the finger up to the knuckle. He then began to unwind the dental floss beginning at the bottom of the finger. Amazingly, the ring began to move up the finger as the string was being unwound! The solution was so simple yet so effective.

Sometimes you can only find the solution to your problems when you begin to see things in a different light. What you need is a whole new approach—a different perspective for you to find your breakthrough. The old way of thinking simply wouldn’t cut it. What you need is a brand new outlook in life. What you need is a radical mindset.

The Radical Mindset of Jesus

Jesus displayed a radical mindset. He thought differently and lived differently. He radically changed the way people relate with God. He called God “Father” and taught others to do the same. He performed extraordinary works like healing the sick and raising the dead. What He did was nothing short of revolutionary. He was a radical.

There’s a story in the book of Luke where Jesus displayed his different approach in life. He stood by the Lake of Gennesaret and saw two boats standing by the lake. The fishermen had gone from them and were washing their nets.

Luke 5:3 says,

3 Then He got into one of the boats, which was Simon’s, and asked him to put out a little from the land. And He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat.
4 When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.”
5 But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing…”

Notice what was taking place here. Jesus was a son of a carpenter. It’s safe to say that He was not an expert in fishing unlike Simon and the other men who were fishing almost all their lives. Jesus asks Simon to let down his nets for a catch into the deep. Who was this man to tell them what to do? They have been fishing and toiling all night but they did not catch anything. Perhaps they were already frustrated that time. And then a carpenter’s son tells them what to do. How would you have reacted if it were you?

Maybe you’ve been in that kind of place before. You’ve tried so hard to find the solution to your problem and yet you couldn’t find the answers. You were frustrated and now you’re desperate. So what do you do?

Here’s what Simon did. He said, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.” (v.5)

Simon could have held on to his ego and said:

“We have toiled all night and caught nothing. Who are you to tell us what to do?”

“We know what we’re doing Jesus. We’ve been doing this for years! It’s just that this day is not our day. There’s no point doing this again.”

But instead of saying that, Simon said, “Nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.”

Let it Go

What are the things you’ve been holding on to? Your talents? Skills? Your abilities?

Your skills and capabilities may have brought you much success in life. But what do you do when nothing seems to work? What if no matter how hard you try, you just couldn’t find your breakthrough? Are you still going to hold on to your own strength?

Maybe what you need is a “dental floss solution”—a fresh take on things. A radical mindset that goes beyond logic. Let go of what works and see God work.

When you let go of your own understanding of what works and trust Him instead, you will begin to see God working in your life in ways you’ve never imagined possible.

Maybe it’s time that we put our trust not on our own strength but on the one who gave us the strength. Maybe it’s time to let go of our pride and begin to trust in God.

Simon was skilled in fishing. He was probably an expert in that field. But Jesus invited him to launch into the deep and let down their nets to catch some fish. He could have refused Jesus and held on to his pride and say it was pointless. But what he did opened up a whole new world of possibilities that he had never imagined possible. Because of his response, his life has never been the same again.

After letting down their nets, they caught a great number of fish to the point that their net was breaking. And they were sinking because of the weight of their catch!

Nothing had prepared them for what they’ve experienced. A simple act of letting go and trusting in Jesus opened the door for them to experience the impossible.

Trust God

God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He has been doing great wonders and He is still in the business of doing miracles today. He is inviting us to have faith in Him. To trust Him. Proverbs 3:5-6 says,

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.”

It’s time to put our trust in Him. Let us not rely on our own understanding. Instead, submit to Him in all our ways and He will make our paths straight.

Let’s live the radical life and let go of our own understanding. We need to go beyond logic and live by faith. When we let go of our own ways, we will experience more of His miracle-working power in our lives.

Empowered by God

|Paul Yadao|

 

The world around us is looking for an authentic experience and demonstration of God’s love and goodness. Like mirrors, our lives are the best reflection of the image of God. Our lives that have been shaped by our personal relationship with the Almighty God are the powerful messages that the world reads and listens to. Our stories of miracles and blessings are like salt that triggers thirst to those who hear and observe our lives.

God is inviting us to dream with Him and change the world around us with His goodness, power and love.

The world is looking for models, for heroes, for champions. But what we see on the internet , the television or all around us are models based on personalities. Personalities are given accolades based on their charisma rather than character. We see that there are those who rise to the top because of their talents but they are lacking in integrity. God desires to reveal to this world His beauty, goodness, glory and love. And this is through His sons and daughters, you and I, that He sovereignly plans to do it. This is an invitation to change the world around us by His love and power.

Samaritan Woman

One of the most amazing stories in the Gospel that gives us a glimpse of the power of a transformed life is that of the Samaritan woman in John 4:1-26.

Jesus chose to stay and He initiated a conversation with a Samaritan woman. She came to draw water from the well and Jesus asked her, “Give me a drink.” In the course of the conversation Jesus unveiled one important truth—that He is able to give the Living Water of God to those who ask. Then a hunger rose in the heart of the woman and she said, “Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst nor come here to drink.”

Jesus said, “Go call your husband.” This statement unveiled the real issue in the heart of the woman. She has been looking for true love—something that could satisfy her inner thirst.

Then the conversation shifted to something spiritual as the woman perceived that He is a prophet. Jesus eventually revealed the heart of God—the Father is seeking for worshippers who will worship Him in spirit and in truth. And as if something happens in a moment, Jesus said, now is that time.The woman’s hunger touched something in the heart of Jesus. In the process she received the living water, the love she has been looking for. She has been set free from all the brokenness and shame.

And something amazing happened. She went to her town telling the men what Jesus did. She became the mouthpiece for God’s goodness, forgiveness and love. No more shame. No guilt. No intimidation. She proclaimed and demonstrated her freedom and it awakened a thirst in the hearts of others.

It came so natural. It was an overflow of the living water she has received. Perhaps some of those men were the ones who criticized or gossiped or slandered her. She was an outcast before she met Jesus. But after she received the gift of life she became the proclaimer of Good News. Such is the impact of her story that the whole town came out to see Jesus.

Catalyst

Her testimony became a catalyst for others to seek for the water that quenches the inner thirst of mankind. She became the very message of God’s goodness, love and power. Her testimony became a salt to their hearts that created the thirst for eternal things.

A God-empowered life will empower other lives.

When you look around do you see people looking for the living water? Can you feel their ache for things that only God can give but they look for it in different places? Can you identify with their brokenness, shame or guilt? Do you feel God’s heart for the lost?

Look around. Do you see present-day Samaritan women or men? Ask God to set you up for an opportunity to share your story of how good He is to you. Share your blessings. Show kindness. Be generous. Risk and love others and see what God will do through you. He’s calling you to change the world with Him.

How to Discover Your Divine Purpose

|Paul Yadao|

 

God is a God of purpose. Everything He created from the unseen to the seen, exist and come into being for a purpose. From the smallest particles of matter to the largest mammals, to the majestic mountains and oceans, to the countless stars in the universe, all of these display God’s majesty and might and wisdom. There is purpose for every design. Have you observed that most of the fruits and that are rich in vitamin C (sour fruits like oranges, limes, etc) are harvested during the rainy season? Have you ever wondered the purpose for the seasons (rainy, summer, etc)? If you could just take time to be curious and ask the purposes of the things around you, you will be amazed that all things have purpose for existence.

Myles Munroe said, “The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but a life without a purpose.” This is a profound and sobering statement on purpose. This is so true. There are countless individuals who are living their lives without knowing their God-given purpose. Without a God-given purpose everything becomes meaningless, no sense of fulfillment, no cause to live and fight for.

How do we know His purpose for us?

In Jeremiah 1:4-10 it says:

Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying:
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
Then said I:
“Ah, Lord God!
Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a youth.”
But the Lord said to me:
“Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’
For you shall go to all to whom I send you,
And whatever I command you, you shall speak.
Do not be afraid of their faces,
For I am with you to deliver you,” says the Lord.
Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me:
“Behold, I have put My words in your mouth.
See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms,
To root out and to pull down,
To destroy and to throw down,
To build and to plant.”

Encounters
Each one has a unique call and God-given purpose. And the way we come to understand this purpose is to have encounters with Him. That is, to experience Him intimately and personally. We find who we really are in our experience of Him. The more we know Him the more we know of His purpose to us.

As for Jeremiah, his encounter with God brought clarity to his purpose in life—that is to be a prophet of the nations.

CHOSEN – In his mother’s womb, God is intimately acquainted with him.

SET APART – Before his birth, God set him apart for a purpose—to be a prophet among the nations.

GUIDED – Although he was just a youth, God said, “Don’t say ‘I am a youth’ for I am with you.”

EMPOWERED – He will speak with authority because God puts His word on his mouth.

Knowing God
Like Jeremiah we too have divine purpose and destiny. You can ask God and He will reveal it to you. His call upon your life is what gives you fulfillment in life.

Knowing God intimately is embracing your divine purpose fully.

What gives you joy? What are your dreams? What are you passionate of? What is being stirred in you whenever you engage the Presence of God? Whenever you come to Him and delight in Him His purposes to you are made clear.

How will you live your life knowing that God has placed in you a divine purpose? You are chosen. You are set apart. He will guide you into your destiny. He will empower you to accomplish it. As you go deeper in love with God you discover His amazing purpose in and through you.

How to Experience God’s Power

|Paul Yadao|

 

God is Almighty. Meaning there is no one mightier than Him. He is Omnipotent. His power, strength and ability are without limits. And God does what He pleases. However, in spite of this unlimited potential He chose to reveal His might to those who are intimate with Him. It is relationship that brings us to greater experiences of His Miracle Working Power.

When we hear stories of miraculous works of God on a person’s life a desire is awakened in us to experience the same thing. This is a God-given desire. But how do we move from just having a desire for the miraculous to actually experiencing it consistently and progressively in our lives? Sometimes when these desires do not materialize frustration comes. We begin to think and believe that the power of God is only for the few selected ones.

Is this so? Is there a way to experience His supernatural power naturally?

It is God’s desire to display His POWER to us and through us. The best place to experience His power is in love. Love is the greatest motivator for God in revealing His power to us. As we grow in knowledge and intimacy with Him we find ourselves carrying out mighty exploits for Him because His power is upon us.

“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him…” 2 Chronicles 16:9

“…but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits” Daniel 11:32

The Unlimited Power of God is available to those who love Him and those who live for Him.

God desires to reveal His power to the weak and the humble. The ones who will say, “Apart from You I can do nothing”. As we learn to depend on Him in all things we begin to see that His power is available to us all the time. Even in the simplest situations and circumstances in our lives His power is available to us to access and experience.

God displays His power to us out of His great love for us.

Your key to experiencing His power lies not in your own strength and ability. You experience the greatest demonstration of His POWER in LOVE. Yes, love IS the key to experiencing the miracles of God.

Psalm 91:1 says, “He who dwells in the secret place of the most High (a love relationship, intimate and personal) shall abide (remain and trust) under the shadow (the covering, protection and blessing) of the Almighty.”

As we remain in His Love His power is manifested to us.

“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”
Psalm 91:14-16

God’s mighty power is available for us to access and experience to show the world His goodness. His power destroys the works of the enemy and reveals His glory. His power is in full display as we trust in His love. He loves to show Himself strong to those whose hearts are totally His.

Paul writes, “If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31) Now declare this: “His power is mighty in me because He loves me. In His love I am safe, I am strong and I can do mighty things.”
