Psalm 139:23-24 (TPT)

Pray this scripture:  
God, I invite your searching gaze into my heart. Examine me through and through; find out everything that may be hidden within me. Put me to the test and sift through all my anxious cares.

Hurdles: Forgiveness

 

Activation:

Demonstration of Forgiveness:

I choose to forgive ___________, and I release them from my judgment.

I choose to no longer partner with the lie ______________.

Holy Spirit, show me the truth. (Write down this truth.)

Ask Holy Spirit, "Is there anyone I need to forgive?"

As Holy Spirit brings to mind the person and/or situation, begin to use this model to declare forgiveness in that relationship.

Application:

Defend your act of forgiveness by taking thoughts captive.

Begin to embrace the gift of Abundant Life.

Hurdles: Taking Steps

 

Activation:

Think of something that you have been viewing as an obstacle.

Now begin thinking of it as a challenge to something more "abundant" that the Father has waiting on you.

Application:

Your situation has been given to you in an amount "you can handle."

Lay out a strategy "to handle it" and begin to DREAM of the greater things the Father has in store for you.

Reconciled Sons and Daughters

 

ACTIVATION:
You have the rights of sonship...

1. We are safe - there is nothing to fear.

2. We have divine DNA.

3. We have access to the Father.

4. We have the Father's attention & affection.

5. We have assurance of our sonship.

6. We have unimaginable wealth & resources.

7. We will have some sufferings; shared glory.

APPLICATION:

Here's a challenge for you:

Change the way you speak to God from "formal" to "intimate/close." You are no longer slaves to sins; you are sons/daughters.

Example: Not This: "Dear God"

                This: "Our Father, Daddy, Dad, Papa"
