"Thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus." (Philemon 6)

I acknowledge that "it is not I that live, but Christ liveth in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of
the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me" (Galatians 2:20).  To acknowledge a fact is to confess that fact,
to affirm it, to give testimony to it.  Never can I forget the wonderful day when I walked up and down in my office affirming
over and over, "Christ liveth in me!" and the life I now live, I live by the faith of the Son of God.  It is His victorious faith by
which I really live!

I acknowledge that "Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to
the power that worketh in us" Ephesians 3:20.  In Christ that power is working within me.  What is that power doing
within?  It is doing exceeding abundantly above all we can ask or think.  Hallelujah.  I acknowledge often that the power
of God is working within me.

I acknowledge that "Whatsoever I ask the Father in Jesus' Name, He will give it to me" (John 16:24).  This is mine!  
Blessed privilege!  Hallelujah!  I ask the Father in Jesus' Name, and wonderful things happen.  I acknowledge this fact.

I acknowledge that "Greater is He that is within me, than he that is in the world" (I John 4:4).  I constantly acknowledge
that the Greater One is inside me.  The Greater One has control of me and He is far greater than the enemy in this
world.  How dominant this makes me over adverse circumstances, problems, anxieties.

I acknowledge that "God hath not given me the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind" (II Timothy
1:7).  I acknowledge that within me is the spirit of power, of love and of a sound mind.  This sets my faith on fire; I
acknowledge that I have these right spirits of power, love, and a sound mind now.

I acknowledge that within me is liberty, for the Holy Spirit is within.  " Now the Lord is that Spirit, and where the Spirit of
the Lord is, there is liberty" (II Corinthians 3:17).  I never say, "I don't feel liberty within me."  God says the Holy Spirit is
within me, and because of that the mighty Holy Spirit that liberated from the dead the body of Jesus Christ indwelling
me, that same mighty Spirit is producing liberty.  I have the liberty of the Spirit; I am also a liberator, setting others free.

I acknowledge that "The love of God is shed abroad in my heart by the Holy Ghost" (Romans 5:5).  I acknowledge I can
love with the same pure love with which Jesus loved needy humanity because the love of God is shed abroad in my
heart.  This is how I am known as a disciple of the Lord: "By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have
love one to another" (John 13:35).

I acknowledge that "I can lay hands on the sick and they shall recover" (Mark 16:18).  Jesus said so and it's my
supernatural authority to administer His healing power to sIck and infirm bodies.  They shall recover.
