God knows my true
heart and thoughts. The Holy Spirit changes me on the inside before it shows on
Chronicles 28:9 (NASB)
“As for you, my
son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with your whole heart
and a willing mind; for the LORDsearches all hearts, and understands every intent
of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will let you find Him; but if you forsake
Him, He will reject you forever.”
If you love me,
you will keep my commandments. I will ask the Father, and He will give you
another Helper, that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth,
whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, because
He abides with you and will be in you.
I am no longer who I
I am becoming the
person my God created me to be.
Peter 1:21-23 (NLT)
you have come to trust in God. And because God raised Christ from the dead and
gave Him great glory, your faith and hope can be confidently placed in God. Now
you can have sincere love for each other as brothers and sisters because you
were cleansed from your sins when you accepted the truth of the Good News. So
see to it that you really do love each other intensely with all your hearts.
I can trust my God to
When my trust is in man alone, he will fail
40 (NASB) A Psalm of David
I waited patiently for the LORD; and He
inclined to me and heard my cry.
He brought me up
out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay,
And He set my
feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.
He put a new
song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God;
Many will see
and fear and will trust in the LORD.
How blessed is
the man who has made the LORDhis trust,
My life is not an
accident. God has created me,
special and wonderfully made me with a purpose for my life.
Timothy 1;7-9 (NASB)
For God has not
given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline. Therefore
do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord or of me His prisoner, but join
with me in suffering for the gospel according to the power of God, who has
saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but
according to His own purpose and grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus from

is the greatest commandment in the Law?” And He said to him, “’You shall love the LORDyour God with
all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’This is the great and foremost commandment. The second
is like it, ‘You shall love your
neighbor as yourself.’On these two commandments depend the whole Law and
God disciplines those
He loves and who love Him.
He works all things
out for good, even my poor choices.
In the same way
the Spirit also helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we
should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings to deep for
words; and He who searches our hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is,
because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
And we know that
God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those
who are called according to His purpose.
I lose the battle
with temptation in my mind first.
When I dwell on what tempts me, I’ve lost,
Corinthians 10:12,13 (NASB)
him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall. No temptation has
overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not
allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will
provide a way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.
Corinthians 10:14-18 (NLT)
I cannot live life to
the fullest independent of God. I choose life!
For those who
are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but
those who are according to the Spirit, the things according to the Spirit. For
the mind set on flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and
peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile to God; for it does not
subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, and those
who are in the flesh cannot please God.
I am free of guilt
I am given mercy and grace for my poor choices.
is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit
of life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could
not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the
likeness of sinful flesh as an an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the
flesh, so that the requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who do not
walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
Sin is no longer my
I want to do what is right in my Fathers eyes.
Therefore do not
let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, and do not go on
presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness;
but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as
instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not be your master over you,
for you are not under law but under grace.
