1) Introduction


2) Teaching the Bible

Proverbs 12:25 (NKJV)

Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, But a good word makes it glad.

Isaiah 53:4-6 New Living Translation (NLT)

4 Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down.

And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins!

5 But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed.

John 14:27 New King James Version (NKJV)

27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.

Matthew 8:17 (NLT)

17 This fulfilled the word of the Lord through the prophet Isaiah, who said, “He took our sicknesses and removed our diseases.”

1 Peter 2:24 (NIV)

24 “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”

Isaiah 10:27 King James Version (KJV)

27 And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing. -

lets pray for you then we will show you how to keep what you have received.


Prayer for you.

Your Part

Reading God’s Word - The Bible - is really important.

Proverbs 4:22 New Living Translation (NLT)

22 for they bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body.

Romans 12:2 King James Version (KJV)

2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Resist thoughts of failure and doubt with the Word of God. a YOU ARE NOT A FAILURE - YOU ARE GODS CHILD AND YOU ARE SUCCESSFUL.

Ephesians 6:17 King James Version (KJV)

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

we have to guard our mind - Kevlar helmet - Protect your mind. Think on good things.

Romans 8:31-39 New International Version (NIV) - More Than Conquerors

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[b] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

1 John 4:4 New International Version (NIV)

4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.

3. Speak words of truth over your mind and life.

Romans 12:2 (KJV)

2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,

2 Timothy 1:7 King James Version (KJV)

7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Philippians 4:8 (KJV)

8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

I think on things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, good report, virtue, praise, think on these things.
