A. Change begins with renewing your mind and it is a process, not a one time event, and it involves both the addition of “Good” and subtraction of “Bad” from your life – In order for change to take place around you, it must begin with you. Change begins with renewing your mind and altering the way you think to line up with God’s Word (Romans 12:1, 2).


B. Man is a tri-part being—spirit, soul, and body (1 Thessalonians 5:23) – We ARE spirit beings, created in the image and likeness of God.  We POSESS a soul – our mind, will and emotions.  We LIVE INSIDE of a body. The spirit was never designed to be led by the Body, or by the worldly, sense-knowledge of the mind, but by the Word of God.

C. Grace is the power that we have through Jesus not only saves and restores us to right standing with God, but also helps us live victoriously – When we become born again, God not only gives us the grace to receive salvation – We are the righteousness of God through grace (2 Corinthians 5:21) AND there is grace available for everything we need in life; we access grace through faith in God’s Word (Ephesians 2:4-10, Romans 3:21-31, 5:1-5).

 D. God desires to be the head of your life – God wants us for him and him alone – our only source.  There can be no substitute. (Exodus 20:3-4, James 4:5-8, Luke 16:13, Ezekiel 6:8-9). If God is not at the head, then idolatry is in motion – We are defeated whenever something else has replaced God as Lord and master (1 Samuel 4-7)

E. If your life, in action, definition, habits, and the regular focus and fruit of your effort does not line up with the agenda of Jesus Christ – Then you need to change. How? Renew your mind (Romans 12:1-2)  See Chart.


 F. Indispensable (Essential, Absolutely Necessary).  They key to becoming indispensable is to know your purpose and fulfill it – God is a God of purpose.  Everything he created has a purpose. If you don’t know or understand the purpose – abuse (abnormal use) is inevitable.  As a woman, you must know and understand your purpose – and he purposed the woman to bring GOOD (Genesis 1-3, Proverbs 3:12).

Word Power

“Just as God created the universe by faith-substance and word-energy, you create your own universe by your faith and your words. If you don’t like what you have created, you can change it!” – Quantum Physics

“God used faith-substance and word-energy to create the universe. He spoke and the vibration (sound) of His words released the substance that became the stars and planets. Words are the carrier of substance. They carry substance to wherever it is directed. If you direct your faith toward your bank account with intention of filling it to overflowing, then your word-energy vibrations cause your account to become a magnet for substance in the form of money. It will begin to come to you through a variety of different places. If you direct your faith to the healing of your body, then your words carry healing energy to the cellular level of your body. On the vibrations of your words, faith-substance is carried to your body where it becomes the substance in the form of healing.” – from Quantum Faith

“I had to take ownership for some situations in my life. I had to ask myself, what role did my own words play in these situations? What words did i release unconsciously, carelessly, or unknowingly that contributed to creating current circumstances. I can change those things with my words.

A revelation on words God gave me: Words are ‘things’ wrapped in sound. If you understand this, you will be more aware of what is coming out of your mouth.”  – Suzanne Daniels, NSM
