About this Episode

Hello and welcome to RIOT Podcast (Righteous Invasion of Truth). We are honored you joined us today! Today's podcast is sponsored by: Bob Schoneman brokered by eXp Realty - In today's podcast Pete, Bob, and Barry walk people through how they can guarantee results with their New Year's resolutions. Let's face it we all make them, and oftentimes they fizzle out within the first few months of the year. They are also joined by a special guest from Power Point Ministries, Geoffrey Harris. They focus on three primary hot topic points; Plan to Win, Prepare to Win, and Expect to win!

  • Plan To win • Habakkuk 2:2-3 “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that whoever reads it may run with it.” • 2 Chronicles 15:7 “But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.” • Psalm 20:4 “May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.” • Psalm 33:11 “But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.” • Psalm 118:8 “It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans.” • Proverbs 3:6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
  • Prepare to win • 2 Cor 10:5 says We take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ • Phil 4:8 8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things • John 14:26 – "But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you." • Romans 8:26-27 – "And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don't know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God's own will." • Romans 5 and 6 but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace." • Romans 12:2 “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” • Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” • Hebrews 10:35-36 “So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.”
  • Expect to win • Phil 4:13 we can do all things • Phil 8:37 we are more than conquers through him who loved us • 1 John 4:4 Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world • Isiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against me shall prosper • Romans 8:31 if God is for us who can be against us • Ephesians 3:20 He is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.
