THE POWER OF POSITIVE CONFESSION 100 POSITIVE CONFESSIONS
INTRODUCTION We must begin to speak like kings and princess which we are – The Bible tells us in 2Cor. 5:20 “If any man be in Christ, He is a new creature, old things have past away, behold all things have become new.” This new life covers what comes out from our lips. Our lips should carry new revelations, new wisdom, new songs, positive confessions and above all power to create. God said in Genesis 1 – “Let there be light” and there was light. We, who are created in God’s own image and likeness, also possess God’s creative ability, when we become born-again. We must learn to maximize these creative powers in our tongue and proclaim boldly – “I shall have what I say. I believe therefore, I receive”. I speak the same thought as God, and His words coming out of my mouth shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish the purpose for which I sent it. In Jesus name it shall be done. As Christians we are not immune from temptation. Infact they come to us on daily basis in form of negative thoughts. But we can take every negative thoughts captive into the obedience of Christ by speaking the word of God. These words are helpful for those that may be struggling with battles in the mind. Confessing the word of God is one way we can overcome.
2

As we daily confess positively, these five things will begin to happen:  Every aspect of your life will begin to experience changes (positive confession is a catalyst of change).  You will begin to fulfill your destiny in life (positive confession is your passport to your place of destiny in life).  You begin to possess your God-given success (confession precedes possession).  Your direction in life will become clearer (positive confession sets your direction and determine how far you can go).  Our lives are sustained (positive confession will sustain us when all hope is gone). 1 I am a success not a failure (Joshua 1:8) Lots of folks always see failure in all they do. The reverse should be the case as believers. We must have a success mentality, and uproot every seed of failure. Never believe what others may say about that venture you are about to go into. Hold firmly to God’s unchanging word, which contains the promises of success. 2 I am a blessing not a burden (Genesis 22:17 – 18) Some individuals are like yoke or burden on others. People do all they can to avoid these set of individuals like plagues. Are you a blessing or a burden? The choice is yours. The Lord has created you to be not just a blessing, but also a channel of blessing. 3 I am a city set on a hill not on a valley (John 8:23) The valley is a place meant for mediocre. The hill is where champions dwell. Samson was born a champion, but immediately he took a wife
3

from the valley of Sorek, that was the beginning of his downfall. You must make a bold decision to remain on the top of the hill and never think of going down to the valley. Like the scripture tells us – “I will look up to the hill from whence cometh my help” (Ps. 121:1) 4
I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me (Phil 4:13)

Some individuals are specialists in speaking negatively about any situation they find themselves. They daily fill their thoughts with “I cannot”. I cannot be rich, I cannot be healthy, I cannot have children, I cannot be the first, I cannot get married, I cannot get that job……. etc. It is really disheartening that Christians also indulge themselves in these negative confessions. We must realize that all things are possible to them that believe in the Lord. With men, it may be impossible, but with God all things are possible. 5 I am the head and not the tail (Deuteronomy 28:13) Some individuals take delight in being the tail in all areas of their life. They are either afraid to be the head, or they feel uncomfortable when they are on top. Your destiny is at the head, not the tail. 6 I am above and not beneath (Deuteronomy 28:13a) It is not sinful to aspire to become the president of a country, or the governor of a state or the chairman of a local government. It is only sinful when we choose to be beneath others all the days of our lives. Who says you cannot be the leader of people? You have all it takes, because you have the wisdom of God dwelling in you.

7 I am fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalms 139:14) Some years ago, I was talking with a wonderful sister, and she said something very depressing: “People say that I am too fat and ugly.” I tried to convince this beloved sister that what she was told wasn’t the truth, but it was impossible. She had already registered the negative comment about her beauty in her subconscious. We must have a high opinion about ourselves. You are created in a unique way and when you see yourself in the light of that truth, nobody can say anything contrary to change your feeling. You are the best God created. 8 I am the apple of God’s eyes (Deuteronomy 32:10) This is one of the biggest revelations in Gods word, because knowledge of this fact gives us peace and rest from every attack of the enemy. Before anyone can touch or harm you, he/she must harm the lord first, which is as impossible as the sun rising from the North. 9 I am a lender and not a borrower (Deuteronomy 15:6) The borrower is a slave to the lender; hence we must break ourselves free from the yoke of borrowing. As children of the all Sufficient God, we are created to lend to the nation and not borrow. 10 I am fruitful not barren (2Peter 1:8, Exodus 23:26) Lots of families are daily afflicted with barrenness, which may be a result of one medical defect or the other, spiritual curse or affliction by the

5

enemy. And as with the times of old, the lord has sent his assurance of fruitfulness to his children – “none shall be barren in the land”. If Sarai at an old age was still able to bring forth a child, then the lord will surely shame all those that have mocked you, and cause you to be fruitful in Jesus name, Amen. 11 I am a victor, not a victim (1John 5:4) We often hear of accident victims, kerosene explosion victims or armed robbery victims, Air crash victims etc. These accidents leave in their wake sorrow, pains and heartache. Today, the yoke of been victim is broken, and we declare boldly that we are victors. In every area of our lives, we are more the conquerors. 12 I am a winner, not a looser (2Corinthians. 2:14) The Brazilian National team has a winning mentality. They enter into the field to play with one purpose - “To win”. This winner mentally saw them winning the world cup at Korea – Japan 2002 and also made them the No. 1 footballing nation according to FIFA ranking. So many individuals and even Christians enter into various ventures with half of their heart beating failure, failure, failure, and they end up eventually on the loosing side. Beloved sons and daughters of God, you are born to be winners, not losers. 13 I am a child of joy not sorrow (Isaiah 61:3) Joy attracts light, while sorrow attracts darkness. No wonder Jabez cried out to the lord “to enlarge his coast”. Jabez was not happy because his name was influencing every aspect of his life. No matter what the enemy steals from you, never allow the enemy to steal your joy, because with

6

joy, comes strength. Sorrow may last for a night, but joy comes in the morning 14
I am a divine project, not an abandoned project (Philippians 1:6)

One major feature of the Federal, State and Local Government is the constant issue of abandoned projects. Billions of naira is yearly wasted on projects which are later abandoned by dubious contractors. But thank God we have a heavenly father who delights in starting and ending everything concerning us. He will never abandon us. That is a promise he has constantly kept. 15 I am a solution, not a problem (Isaiah 8:18) Some individuals are celebrated in gatherings, because their presence carries with them solution where there was an existing problem. So many are like problem children. Anywhere they go, they leave with them a trail of problems. Instead of attracting people, they end up discouraging people. Desire to be a solution to your generation. The Wright brothers solved the problem of transportation with their invention of Aeroplane. 16 I am a child of destiny not of accident (Jeremiah 1:5) A child of destiny is 100% sure of what he / she is born to achieve. A child of destiny can never be stranded in life. On the contrary, those who feel they came into this world by accident, never aspire to make any impact in any chosen field. They are never happy. They end up making up the numbers, and go just as they came. You are a child of destiny – you were perfectly and thoughtfully created. You are endowed with

7

wonderful gifts to fulfill that destiny. Go ahead and begin to work into your God-given destiny. 17 I shall not lack anything good (Psalms 34:10) The scripture tells us in Psalms 105, how God gave his beloved people quail to satisfy their hunger and bread to keep them strong. The lord also gave them water when they become thirsty. That same God is still able to provide your every need. He knows what is good for you, and as you call upon him today, he is ready to satisfy your heart desire. 18 I am destined for heaven, not hell (John 14:1 – 3) Any sane individual who have had a glimpse of hell, will not even wish his enemy to go there. The story of the Richman and Lazarus is a typical illustration of the horrifying experiences that awaits those that go to hell. In contrast, heaven is a place of peace, joy, gladness and abundance. There would be no weeping or sickness there. It is a place specially prepared for the saints. If you have not started making preparation to spend eternity there, you better start right away. The choice of where you will spend eternity is the greatest choice you can ever make here on earth. 19 I shall not die, but live to declare the good works of the lord (Psalms 118: 17). Majority of people (Christians inclusive) live with the constant fear of death. It is a demonic yoke which must be broken to enable you live victoriously. Dave became afraid when his 20th birthday anniversary was approaching.

8

Reason: Two of his other siblings died before the celebrated their 20th birthday and an unusual fear enveloped the entire family as Dave was about to clock 20. Thank God for faithful men, as a prayer session was held at their family home, where the spell of death was eventually broken, and Dave is alive today, declaring the good works of the lord. Never believe what the enemy says, because he has no right to terminate your life, since he did not create you. You shall not die, but live. If you refuse to die, no man can bury you alive! 20 I am an asset, not a liability (Proverbs 31:10 – 29) Finding yourself with someone who is a liability is one of the most funniest and difficult task to undertake. Even more pathetic is a situation when that individual happens to be your wife or husband – you need divine intervention. Proverbs 31 tells us of the virtuous woman. This woman does not only have multiple virtues, but she is also an asset to the husband, family and community. Do people see you and run away or do the community or society entrust responsibilities on you due to the Assets you possess? Every spirit of liability is destroyed from your life today. Begin to acquire assets for exploits. 21 Greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world (1John 4:4b) When little David came face to face with mighty Goliath, he knew Goliath will fall, because he (David) was carrying something greater than twenty Goliaths added together. The spirit of God that dwells in you is capable of destroying every opposition standing between you and your breakthrough. The devil can only bark, he cannot bite. So never be

9

afraid of the enemy. Reason: The combined forces of darkness cannot withstand the power of God inside of you. 22 I am favoured not cursed (Proverbs 8:35) My beloved brother or sister out there, you may be feeling lonely, discouraged and abandoned. You may think you are cursed or destined for failure or disappointments. Not so my dear, you are not cursed. Looking at the story of Esther, one will see many reasons for her to give in to discouragement. Esther chose to hold on to her unfailing God. She became highly favoured by God and by the King Ahaserus. Today, I release the favour of God upon your life. Every curse will begin to disappear, because the lord has redeemed you from all curses through his precious blood. 23 I am encouraged, never to be discouraged (1 Samuel 30:6) Discouragement is a killer. When it comes, all hope seems lost, and the individual looses the will to continue. Some commit suicide or die slowly and painfully. Discouragement is a trick of the enemy formulated to cut short your destiny in life. The scripture tells us that David encouraged himself in the lord his God. He was greatly distressed and had a thousand and one reasons to give in to discouragement, but he chose to encourage himself. Even if others don’t encourage you, go ahead and encourage yourself. 24 My ending shall be better than my beginning (Haggai 2:9)

10

When others think it is over for you, rejoice and be glad because they have forgotten that your very life is inscribed in the palm of the lord, and he is ready to lift you when you are down. Job lost all he had, but not even his wife could persuade him to curse God and die. The result was so glaring – “The lord blessed the later end of Job more than his 25 beginning”.
I am not a pity, but envy to my generation (Genesis 26:12– 14)

Isaac dwelled in the land of Gerar, where there was famine and lack. Instead of complaining and winning awards in self pity competition, the scripture tells us that he waxed great and went forward and grew until he became very great. The result was that the Philistines envied him. Why won’t they envy him, when it was obvious that he was a success. Nobody ever envies a poor man. Never try to win the pity of others. Choose rather to be an envy to your generation. 26 I refuse to be intimidated (1Samuel 17:32 – 37) The enemy is the master of intimidation. If one is faithless, the result of intimidation is outright fear and then defeat. David though he was small refused to be intimidated, because the lord was with him. If God is with you, why must you be intimidated? Just like Goliath fell flat before David, all forms of intimidation will fall down in the mighty name of Jesus. 27
I confess “The anointing of the Holy one abideth in me” I possess yoke destroying results by the anointing (1John 2:27; Isaiah 10:27)

The anointing that breaks every yoke abides in every believer. The yoke of barrenness, sickness, oppression, failure, rejection etc cannot

11

28

withstand that anointing that dwells inside you. Begin to manifest the power of the anointing.

I confess “I lay my hand on the sick and they shall recover” I possess positive healings for the oppressed (Mark 16:18)

Jesus Christ promised his disciples that greater things shall they do in his name. In the name of Jesus, when hands are laid on the sick, they shall recover. The nature of a sickness is not a parameter to the efficacy of the healing that comes upon the oppressed when the hands of an anointed child of God are laid on the oppressed. Never be afraid to lay your hands on the sick. It is an instruction, just do it and the Lord will do the healing. 29 The enemies that rise up against me in one way will flee before me in seven ways. (Deuteronomy 28:7) Seven stands for completeness. It implies that their fleeing will be complete and total. None will remain to torment you anymore. When the lord rises on your behalf and scatter the enemies, they have only one option: To flee. After the enemies have all ran away, you will have rest on all sides. 30
I will tread upon the serpent and scorpions and over all the works of the enemy and nothing shall hurt me (Luke 10:19)

Serpent and scorpions stand for devil and its agents. The implication of Luke 10:19 are that we have absolute power over the Devil and its agents. Serpents and Scorpions may be dangerous and deadly, but children of the living God are more powerful and deadlier. 31
12

I confess “My God shall supply all my needs” I possess the supply of every need (Philippians 4:19) There may be period of lack or want, but that does not erase the all sufficiency of God. I have personally experienced one need or the other, but at the end, God miraculously supplied my need. He is still the same yesterday, today and forever. 32
I confess “The lord shall preserve me from all evil” I possess preservation from all forms of evils. (Psalms 121:7)

When the angel of God visited the camp of Pharaoh and killed all the first born children of the Egyptians, the children of Israel were sound asleep. They were all preserved. No evil shall come near your dwelling this year in Jesus Name! Amen. 33
I confess “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God”, I possess the assurance that I shall see God for the blood of Jesus has made me pure in heart (Matthew 5:8)

The most glorious moment will occur when we see the lord face to face when we behold the wonderful presence of the one who died for our sins. It would be the most wonderful moment. 34
I confess “Jesus is my lord” I possess salvation (Romans 10:9-10)

The greatest miracle that can happen to a man is the salvation of his or her souls. Until you are saved, you are not safe. Peace and joy are product of salvation. If you are going through this book, and you have not yet experience the joy of salvation, why not go ahead and declare Jesus as lord and saviour. 35

13

I confess “By his stripes I am healed” I possess healing (Isaiah 53:5)

The 39 stripes that came on the lord Jesus Christ stood for all the types of ailments that can ever afflict us. As his blood flowed from his wounds, the blood became a symbol of our healing. It was signed and sealed by his blood. 36 absolute freedom (John 8:36) As many that are bound with one form of illness, oppression, curse or circumstances, there is hope because the lord has made you free. That is the main reason he had to leave his throne up above, to come and set us free. 37
I confess “The love of God is shed abroad in my heart by the Holy spirit” I possess the ability to love everyone (Romans 5:5)

I confess “The son has made me free” I possess

Loving everyone including those who hurt us willingly, is one of the most difficult things to do, even as Christians, but the Holy Spirit enables us to do it. Our love must not be selective or based on sentiment, but must be Christ centred and compulsory. 38
I confess “The righteous are bold as a lion” I possess Lionhearted boldness in spiritual warfare (Proverbs 28:1)

Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of Judah. He was not afraid of the devil, as he triumphed gloriously over the devil. As children of the Lord, we are of the tribe of Judah also. The lion gives birth to little lions. These lions are never afraid of going to confront other

39 14

animals. The battle cannot be avoided; victory is sure, as the lord is there to back us up.
I confess “I am the redeemed of the lord” I possess redemption benefits everyday (Psalms 107:2)

Every redeemed child of God possesses some wonderful benefits which include:  Healing from all forms of ailments  Promise of everlasting life.  Access to the throne of the Almighty  All round success  Fruitfulness in all areas of your life. 40
I am not shackled by sin, Demons or fear: “Thy God whom thou serveth continually, He will deliver thee” (Daniel 6:16)

This is a faithful promise from the Almighty and the one who promises is not a man that he will lie neither is he the son of man that he will repent. All he has promise, he will do. 41
I am not oppressed by cares, difficulties and troubles; I am “casting all my cares upon him, for the careth for me” (1Peter 5:7)

Never carry all the problem of this world on your shoulder. You will end up dying before your time. Some people’s problems are visibly seen on their faces. They behave like the fellow who after entering a bus taking him to his destination, still carried his load on his head. We must learn to cast all our cares upon the lord for he careth for us. 42

15

I am not without Joy; “His joy shall be in me, and my joy shall be full” (John 15:11) The joy of the lord is the greatest asset a man can ever possess. When you remain joyful in the midst of trials and tribulation, even the enemy will give up on your case. Choose to remain joyful even in the midst of 43 your problems, and experience real peace. I am not in a loosing battle, “the lord shall fight for me, and I shall hold my peace” (Exodus 14:14) Many a times, we choose to fight our battles alone and it ends up hurting us. There was this fellow who was facing numerous battles on a daily basis. He had tried to cope with the battles on his own, but he discovered his strength was not sufficient enough. He eventually handed over the situation to the lord. And one after the other, the lord began to deal with each of the battles, until none remained. Those that rely on the lord can never be on the loosing side. 44 I possess supernatural help in every situation, for I confess “my help cometh from the lord, which made heaven and earth” (Psalms 121:2) Never you fall into the trap of relying on your uncle, brother, friend, father or even mother. All these sets of people can disappoint you when you least expect them to. Whatever the nature of help you need, the lord is there to see you through. 45 I possess the ability to be a positive blessing, for I confess “so will I save you, and ye shall be a blessing” (Zechariah 8:13)
16

It is a wonderful experience to receive the blessing of God, but it is even more exciting when we become a source of positive blessing to others. It lightens up their life and gives them joy and hope where there was once darkness. That is the power of being a channel of blessing.

46 I possess wholesome, sound sleep at night, for I confess “He giveth his beloved sleep” (Psalms 127:2) Many people find it extremely difficult sleeping at night. Some resort to taking pills, while others force themselves to sleep. Some are afraid to sleep at night because of the fear of demons, witches and wizards. The bible tells us how Jesus slept in the boat, while the disciples were fear stricken, because of the storm that was threatening the boat. Sound sleep is your heritage. Possess it! 47 I possess the assurance “my labour in the lord is fruitful”, for I confess “for as much as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the lord” (1Cor. 15:58) We shall never be among those that labour in vain! The lord assures us in his word - that the labourer will be first partakers of the harvest. I will never be a spiritual “Agbero” that shows people the way, and never go inside. 48 I possess strength for my day for I confess “As thy days, so shall thy strength be” (Deuteronomy 33:25)

17

It is a mystery that has been hidden from so many. As we grow older, we get spiritually stronger. More than anything else, we must desire to draw nearer to the lord, and get strength with each passing day. 49
I possess special honour from my father for I confess “If any man serve me, him will my father honour” (John 12:26).

Honour is given to whosoever deserves it. As long as you serve the lord faithfully, your honour will never pass you bye. Elisha served his master Elijah faithfully. He also served the lord. When it was his turn, God honoured him. 50 I am not sick for “my father healeth me of all my diseases” (Psalms 103:3) 45 No part of the scriptures ever recorded that Jesus was once sick. It never occurred. And as Christians (Little Christ) we also have that same power to live above sickness. 51
I am not bound for “the son has made me free” (John 8:36)

Just like we have physical prison to keep prisoners captive and physical chains to bound people to restrict their movement, there is also spiritual prison and chain which are used by the enemy to hold captive children of God. But the good news Christ brought to mankind as prophesied in Isaiah 61:1 – 3 “The spirit of the lord is upon me, because the lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the broken-hearted to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound” we are free from every shackles of the enemy and we have been given power to set others free. What a wonderful privilege. 52
18

I am not defeated for “I am more than a conqueror through Christ who loves me” (Roman 8:37)

A clear revelation of this word will free the spirit of every Christian from the fear of defeat and failure. The battle will surely come whether we like them or not, but one thing is certain. “If we know the God we serve, and realize that he has never lost any battle before”, we will face any battle that comes our way confidently, and come out victoriously. 53
I am not weak, for “the Lord will give strength unto His people” (Psalms 29:11)

It grieves my heart many at times to see so called Christians behaving like weaklings. Every little headache or fever and they begin to panic. Any little noise under the bed and they cannot sleep at night. They live daily like chickens, when they ought to live like eagles. The eagle is the strongest bird in the air, never afraid of opposition, never tired of flying higher. Today, choose to tear off every garment of weakness, and put on the garment of strength. “The joy of the lord is your strength”. 54
I am not powerless, for “Ye shall receive power after the Holy Ghost is come upon you”. (Acts 1:8)

One of the marks of a true Christians is power. Power to evangelize, power to heal the sick, power to live holy lives, power to get wealth. The promise of the Holy Spirit came with power, and as many that desire that same Pentecostal power, it can be theirs.

19

Remember the power is not for gymnastics or for showmanship; it is for the edification of the body of Christ. Samson had raw power, but he never knew how to use it to the glory of God. Whatever good thing is given to you, as long as its use is not known, abuse of it is inevitable. Power can be abused when its use is not known. 55
I am not lacking any good thing for “no good thing will be withhold from them that walk uprightly (Psalms 84:11)

The word “good thing” entails everything that makes life meaningful – Wealth, good health, success, children, cars, houses, life partner etc. No wonder the bible encourages us in Matthew 6:25 – 33 not to think of what to eat drink or put on, rather we should seek God’s kingdom and walk uprightly, and all other things, including things that will make our lives beautiful, will be added unto us. 56
I am not afraid of any plague for “there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling (Psalms 91:10).

A plague is an infectious disease that kills a lot of people or anything that causes pain or trouble over a period of time. In both instances, a plague is not something any sane individual would embrace or desire to acquire. The Almighty God has given every one of His children a foolproof assurance, that no evil will befall you; neither shall any plague come near your dwelling. It is a promise which cannot be broken. 57

20

I am not running from the devil for I am “resisting the devil and he is fleeing from me. (James 4:7) We must not run from the devil, because our back is not protected. It is a matter of “No threat No surrender” No matter how fierce the battle may be, one thing is certain, we would overcome, and the devil will flee in terror. We are only allowed to flee from fornication, not the devil. The devil is a toothless bull dog that can only bark and not bite. Continually resist the devil and he will flee from you. 58 I confess “for with God nothing shall be impossible.” I possess impossibilities becoming realities, I am linked with God by divine birth (Luke 1:37) As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. If you think impossibility you will get impossible results. Takes your eyes off yourself, and begin to enter into God’s own plan for your life. David won the battle against Goliath, even before the first stone was fired at the mighty giant (1 Sam 17:43 – 49). David knew that with God, nothing is impossible. Are you there thinking that all hope is lost, lift up your eyes and strengthen those weak legs, because every mountain of impossibility have already been broken down.

59 I confess “Blessed be the lord, who daily loads us with benefits”, I possess a life daily loaded with the benefits of the lord. (Psalms 68:19). The life we live daily in Christ is not dull as many assume it to be.

21

Apart from the excitement and colour Christ adds to our lives, we also have the added advantages of daily being loaded with countless benefits from the smallest to the greatest benefit, nothing is left untouched. The Psalmist knew what he was saying in Psalms 68:19, because he had tasted of God’s daily benefits. 60 I confess “the lord will give strength unto his people; the lord will bless his people with peace. I possess daily strength and abundance of peace. (Psalms 29:11). 61
I confess “I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life “I possess light upon life’s pathway for I am following Jesus (John 8:12)

62
I confess “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that ye always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work”. I possess all grace, abounding grace, saving grace, healing grace, baptism grace, allsufficient grace (2Cor. 9:8)

63
I possess freedom from fear, for I confess “I the lord thy God shall hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, fear not” (Isaiah 41:31)

22

Majority of people live in perpetual fear – fear of darkness, fear of untimely death, fear of accident, fear of heights, fear of failure, fear of the unknown etc. Fear is a spirit, and it torments. In the scripture, God encourages his children to “fear not”. This phrase “fear not” appears more than a hundred times, not by error, but to emphasize the need for us to be afraid. Christ conquered fear on the cross of Calvary when he cried “it is finished” 64
I possess bountiful blessings financially for I confess “He which soweth bountifully shall reap bountifully (2Corinthians 9:6)

As we sow into God’s vineyard, he is also mindful of our labour, and he will duly reward us bountifully. As we give to God’s work even in tithes and offering, he promised us in Malachi 3:10 that He would open the windows of heavens and pour upon us blessings, that there would not be sufficient room to contain it. This is what I call bountiful financial blessing. 65
I possess the peace of God. For I confess “The peace of God which passeth all understanding, shall keep your heart and mind through Christ Jesus our lord” (Philippians 14:7)

As long as you are connected to Christ, who is the prince of peace, no man can steal your peace. Troubles may be raging on your left, right, back and front, but your peace is secured, because it is not based on circumstances, but on Christ the Solid Rock, which no man can move.

23

66 I possess eternal life, for I confess “my sheep hear my voice and I give them eternal life” (John 10:27). Eternal life promised as many that believes in the lord as the saviour of their life. It is a life more precious than gold or silver. Nothing can be compared to it.

67 I possess continued guidance for I confess, “The lord shall guide me continually”. (Isaiah 58:11) The lord guides us through the help of the Holy Spirit. Angels also stand as guide over our lives, but they are not often seen. The pathway of life is filled with lots of potholes, and it takes the continual guidance of the lord to see us through. “The word of God is a lamp unto our feet and a lamp unto our path” (Psalms 119:105). They that rely absolutely on Gods unchanging word can never get stranded in life. 68 I confess “as far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us” I possess the assurance that my sins are removed from me, hallelujah! (Psalms 103:12) Many of us find it hard to believe that our sins have been forgiven us. Thus, we allow Satan to torment us with our past. We forget that we have been fortified by the precious blood of Jesus. And as 2Cor. 5:17 tells us, “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new”.
24

69 I confess “I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh” I possess the spirit out poured upon my life continually. (Acts 2:17) We are in the dispensation of the Holy Spirit, and there is a mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the thirsty souls in our generation. The outpoured spirit is a source of strength, power, wisdom and unction.

70 I shall reign over nations, but they shall not reign over me (Deuteronomy 15:6b). Man was created to reign over other creatures. As children of God, Christ has given us power also to reign over nations and cities. Lots of folks are however ignorant of the awesome power that have been bestowed on them. No wonder Solomon, the author of the book of Ecclesiastes tells us about an error he observed: Servants rode upon horses while princes walked as servants upon the earth. We must begin to reign like kings and princes. 71 Goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life (Psalms 23:6) They that follow the lord as sheep follow their shepherd will never struggle to feed or get favour from their shepherd. The things most people pursue in life – cars, houses, riches, children etc are supposed to pursue us, not the opposite way round (Deuteronomy 28:2) The shepherd careth for all the needs of his sheep, hence I am
25

confident that in every area of my life, I would continually experience the goodness and mercy of God.

72 My head shall never lack fresh oil (Psalms 92:10) One of the things the anointing oil does for a believer is that, it positions the believer for unusual favour. It is the anointing that makes the difference. Others may struggle to succeed, but because your head has been freshly anointed, it will attract success, not struggle. Just like oil attract things because of its sticky nature; our head will attract good things from the lord in Jesus name! Amen. Many a time, we conclude that some individuals head don’t have oil. What it implies is that they are never lucky. Whereas others get employed, they remain jobless inspite of their good credentials and CV. Stand up on your feet and place your hands on your head and proclaim: “My head shall never lack fresh oil.”

73
No Weapon formed against me can prosper (Isaiah 54:17)

We are in a cruel world, where Satan delights in killing, stealing and destroying everything that brings us joy. The enemy Satan does this through the deployment of different weapons. These weapons can be in form of accidents, sickness, failure, death, disappointment barrenness, oppression ……… the ultimate aim of the enemy is to crush and eliminate its victim. The good news is this: No weapon formed against me (put your name) shall proper! They will surely try all means, but they can never succeed because we enjoy spiritual immunity against Weapon

26

of darkness. Trials and temptations will come no doubts, but we will surely scale them through. 74 God has given me power to tread upon serpent and scorpions and over all the power of the (Luke 10:19) As believers, we engage in spiritual warfare daily, and the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but spiritual. The word of God is a strong weapon against the power of the devil. Infact, Jesus in Mt. 4:1–11, used the power in the word, to overcome the temptation of the Devil. The blood of Jesus, evil forces begin to disappear. The name of Jesus is a strong tower the righteous run into it and they are saved. The bible tells us in Phil 2:9-11, that God has highly exalted Jesus and given him a name that is above every other name. At the mention of his name every knee must bow, and all tongue must confess that Jesus is Lord. As you praises and worship God demons will begin to tremble. Prison doors are opened and every demonic chain of oppression is broken. That is the power of praise and worship (Acts 16:25-26). 75 I am an overcomer. I have overcome my adversary by the blood of the lamb and by my confession (Revelation 12:11) When we decide to put on an overcomers mentality and dump fear and failure from our lives, every single part of our lives begin to behave like true overcomers. If we tell ourselves daily that we can make it, we would make it and overcome every insurmountable obstacle.

27

But on the contrary, if we confess with our own lips that we feel sickly and weak, sickness will overcome us, and if we are not lucky, sickness will consume us. Learn to confess positively and use the power in the blood of the lamb against every one of your 76 The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead now lives in me and is energizing, motivating, empowering and equipping me for total victory today and always (Rom 8:11). 77 I am a new creation, old thing have passed away all things have become new (2Corinthians. 5:17) One of the things God promised is in his Word is that he will do a new thing” Before God can do a new thing for us; we have to forget about the old things. Jacob was tired of his condition, and he asked God for an enlargement. Jacob was tried of been labeled a “deceiver” he fought with an angel and asked for a blessing, and what did he get – “a brand new name”. He becomes known as Israel. You may have failed in the past, but God can make all things new in your life. He alone can transform a barren woman, to become a mother of children. He alone can turn lack to abundance. He alone can turn a man from mockery, to become a celebrity. 78 God loves me and his plans for me are good (Jeremiah 29:11) The fact that God loves me cannot be disputed. God mustn’t do everything for me, before I can acknowledge his love for me.

28

My being alive today is a testimony to his love. Many of us would have likewise perished if not for the love of God for us. The free gift of salvation is also a proof of his love “for God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him would not perish but have eternal life” John 3:16 His plans for me are good, even through I may not be seeing all he has in store for me. One thing is sure, God loves me and he has wonderful things in stock for me. 79 If God is with me, therefore, nobody can be against me. (Exodus 14:13-14) Elijah told his servant not to be afraid of the number of the opposition. They may be thousands, but the Lord that is in me is greater than the greatest conciliation of the enemy put together. God has the supernatural ability to confound every power of darkness standing against us.

80 God is opening the windows of heaven for my sake and rebuking the devourer for my sake. (Malachi 3:10-11) Spiritual devours have one major target, to wreck havoc in our lives and leave us devastated. They come in form of spiritual cankerworms caterpillars, locust and palmerworms. But as the window of heaven is opened on our behalf, these spiritual devourers will be strongly rebuked.

29

81 God is able to mall all grace abound towards me, that I always having all sufficiency in all things, may have on abundance for every good work. (2Corinthians 9:8) We can’t do much except the grace of god abound in us. Apostle Paul said – “I am what I am by the grace of God” When the grace of God is made available to the believer, nothing will be lacking in his or her life. The grace of God is a catalyst of positive change. 82 Every Word that I speak will not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing where to I sent it (Isaiah 55:11) Eresi was just fifteen years old, when she was afflicted with hypertension. She courageously spoke to the hypertensive situation – “Lord you know I am innocent of this”, and that was all. Hypertension fled from that beautiful daughter of Abraham. Like Eresi; we can speak the word of God unto our situation, and it will prosper in the thing where to we sent it. 83 I shall mount up with wings like the eagle. I shall run and not be weary; I shall walk, and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31) Eagles never get tired of flying. They settle for things above. In contrast, chickens dwell among dirt and they never fly for long. They love scavenging for worms and crumbs on the ground. We must not settle for crumbs. We must learn to soar like the eagle. Only then can we walk the pathway of life without fainting and run the race set before us without been weary.

30

84 I am above every circumstance in life (Ephesians 1:21) Our lives should not be controlled by circumstances around us. The economy of Nigeria should not be deciding factor in our Lives. We are seated far above every circumstance in life, and we must not forget that. In the land of Gerar, there was a terrible famine, Isaac still sowed in that terrible land and reaped bountifully. The bible records that he waxed great and went forward and grow until he became very great. Isaac was above the circumstance in Gerar. You shall be great! 85 I will lay down in peace, and sleep for the Lord makest me to dwell in safety. (Psalms 4:8) Lots of folks go to bed ach night, but can’t sleep peacefully. They go through what medical experts call insomnia (inability to sleep). This unusual ailment may be caused fear of the unknown or problems of life. But the Lord has assured that he will make you to dwell in safety. Right in the midst of a great storm, when all the disciples of Jesus were afraid of premature death, the Bible records that Jesus Christ was at the hinder part of the ship sound asleep (mark 4;35 – 41). That is a great lesson for those who cannot sleep because of one storm or the other. 86 This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it (Psalms 118:24) Each day comes with its own unique blessing and we can harness these blessing when we can harness these blessings when we cultivate the right attitude. You cannot wake up early in the morning and start the day with complaint, and expect that day to be glorious. What we say concerning any particular day eventually determines how the day turns out to be.
31

If we confess with our lips “Today will be fruitful and prosperous for me and my household”, it will be so according to your faith. The scripture tells us “as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7). 87 Whatsoever I lay my hands on shall prosper (Psalms 1:3b) Stories abound of business men and women young entrepreneurs and determined folks, who have been blessed with multiple streams of income. The secret of their success lies in the covenant they made with the lord, tapping into (Psalms 1:3b) “Whosoever I lay my hands upon shall prosper” The list is endless – Felix Ohiwerei, Mike Adenuga, Pat Utom, jimoh Ibrahim. They all have one thing in common. They are involved in major sectors of the economy, and they are prospering. Never be discouraged by comments of individuals, even as you contemplate to go into one venture or the other. If God blesses you, no man can stop you from prospering. 88 I am too loaded to be frustrated (Genesis 39:1 – 21) Joseph had a dream, a very bog dream. He wasn’t afraid to share the dream with his father and brothers and that single act led to a spontaneous reaction. He was sold into slavery, and the enemy tried all he could to frustrate him from achieving his dream. But the fact was this – Joseph was too loaded to be frustrated. Even in the pit of darkness, he held on to his dream. Right there in Egypt, he never lost focus or got frustrated even while in prison, and his strong determination and faith in God took him to the throne. Beloved brothers and sisters, you are too loaded to be frustrated. No man born of a woman can frustrate God’s plan for your life.

32

The combined forces of darkness may try to do it, but none of their counsel can stand. 89 I am a plus not a minus (John 21:25) It is not only funny but also pathetic to observe how frustrating some individual’s contributions are. In Nigeria’s last world cup qualifying match for Germany, 2006 against Angola, it was obvious that one of our key players in the attack was a minus, and that was a contributing factor to our inability to win that particular match. The coach foolishly delayed his removal till the second half and it was pretty too late for any meaningful impact to be made. The damage had been done. Nigeria failed to qualify for the world cup and the coach was sacked. We must desire to be a plus to our generation, and avoid meddling with people who are minus. This is a major key to our success in life. 90 The lord has delivered me from every form of afflictions (Psalms. 34:1) There is no where in the scripture where we are promised immunity from afflictions or temptations. Infact, the Bible says – “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the lord delivereth him through them all.” Afflictions may come in form of sickness – “the woman with the issue of blood” is a classical example, but she overcame her affliction. It may come in form of barrenness – Hannah, Sarai…” But they all had children. It may be poverty – “The widow woman” but she became an oil merchant and poverty disappeared. Whatever be the affliction, the lord has assured us in his word that he will deliver us from all forms of affliction.

33

91 The lord hast granted me life and favour, and his visitation has preserved my spirit (Job 10:12). When the lord visits a man, favour will inevitably follow that man. Zacheus knew such secret and crave for the visit of Jesus Christ into his home. When the Lord visited Mary and Martha whose brother Lazarus had died four days back, death was rebuked, and life came upon lifeless body. We must all desire a visitation from the lord, and our lives will never be the same. When angel Gabriel visited Mary, her life was transformed beyond her imagination. 92 I am not created for reproach, I am created for signs and wonders (Isaiah 8:18) People are tired of hearing stories of our being children of God. They want to see tangible signs and wonders following our claims. We must become signs to our generation. We must desire the miraculous to begin to unfold in our lives, and cause people to wonder where the miracles are coming from. The Lord is wonderful, that is, He is full of wonders. We who are connected to him are living testaments to our generation. Reproach must be far from us. The Lord promised the Israelites that the rod of the wicked shall not come upon the righteous who are far above reproach. 93 I am a pillar, not a caterpillar. (Revelation 3:12)

34

A pillar is a support upon which a building stands. Any slight shift in the pillar of a building could spell disaster as it happened in Judge 16:26 – 30, when Samson avenged his enemies by shifting the pillars in the temple of Dagon. About 3000 men and women died when the pillar got shifted. That is the power of a pillar. On the other hand, a caterpillar is an insect that is destructive. It feeds on the leaves of plants and leaves it dead. Many Christians are like caterpillars. All they do is to destroy. They do this by gossiping, rumour mongering, backbiting, strife and unnecessary envy. The option is left to us. But I choose to be a pillar not a caterpillar. 94 I have the seed of greatness in me, therefore, I cannot be small (Zechariah 4:10) Planted in the heart of every human is a seed of greatness. Just like a baby grows up physically to become a man, every thought and ideas we have, can be nurtured into greatness. If we are small, it is an indication of our attitude and mentality. A man cannot rise beyond his attitude and mentality. David was a little shepherd boy, but God has already planted in his heart the seed of greatness. Others may be satisfied with the little achievement. There are many more achievements waiting to be accomplished. 95 I have a sound mind (2Timothy 1:7) The lord tells us in his word that he has not given us the spirit of fear but of boldness, of love and of a sound mind. You can never be confused in your mind, as long as you stay connected to the prince of peace. You

35

can never get stranded in life’s journey as long as you stay connected to the light of life. Satan cannot defile my mind with filthy and negative thoughts. Never! Confess aloud: “I have a sound mind, because I am created in the image and likeness of God”. 96 I am making progress today and daily by the grace of God (Philippians 3:14) You may look back at how far you have come in life, and become discouraged when you cannot see any meaningful progress. It is not time for discouragement. Forget about the past and like Paul say – “I am pressing forward towards the mark of my high calling”. Never you think of the past, never get worried of the future. Focus in the present. Resolve in your heart to make good use of today. When you do this, you will discover you are making daily progress. 97 The riches of the gentiles are coming to me daily (Isaiah 61:6) Beloved, never you make the mistake of envying sinners. There is nothing to envy in their cars, building, clothes etc. when the time for you to shine finally comes, all the riches of the faculties will be surrendered to you. If you doubt me, check Genesis 12:36. Ask for favour in that business of yours and you will be shocked as gentiles will be trooping to buy from you daily. It is not by using charms or juju. Darkness cannot comprehend light.

36

98 I shall suffer no loss today and always. (Acts 27:22) The dark places of the earth are filled of the habitation of cruelty. We need the grace of God to survive in this cruet world. Lanre Modile was out in Alpha Beach, Lagos to enjoy himself during the December picnic. The date was December 22nd, 2003, just three days to Christmas. He never returned home from that picnic at Alpha Beach. His disappearance is still a mystery and a big loss to his parents. We live in a world filled with wickedness and we can do well to invoke the power of God upon our life and family. As the lord liveth, “I shall suffer no loss”. 99
Today, my going out is blessed and my coming in is blessed! (Deuteronomy 28:6).

Many go out healthy but return home sick. Some go out alive and return as dead corpse. Others go out complete and come back deformed. The enemy is out to steal, kill and destroy, but it will never come near our dwelling. We shall go out blessed and return home more blessed in the mighty name of Jesus! Amen. 10
I am waxing stronger and stronger on a daily basis. (Joshua 14:11)

I am waxing stronger and stronger in every area of my life! I refuse to be sickly. I choose good health. I am waxing stronger in my business, education, marriage and spiritual life. Jesus grew and waxed great both in wisdom, stature and favour; hence, I must do likewise. He was never sick for one minute. Even while he was on the cross, he was very strong. Death could not hold him captive.

37

He triumphed gloriously over the enemy, and he has given us power to tread upon serpent and scorpion, and over all the works of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt us.
