Jentezen Franklin quotes (showing 1-12 of 12)

“We need to send our words out in the direction we want them to go. In other words, we need to start talking victory when we’re staring at defeat. We need to start talking healing when we’re feeling sick. We need to start blessing and prosperity when we don’t have anything. We need to speak about marching when we feel like quitting.”
Jentezen Franklin, Believe That You Can: Moving with Faith and Tenacity to the Dream God Has Given You
“Unless you put prayer with your fasting, there is no need to fast. If it doesn't mean anything to you, it won't mean anything to God.

I can do without a lot of things, but I cannot do anything without Jesus.

Moses fasted. Elijah fasted forty days. Paul fasted fourteen days. Jesus fasted forty days. If the children of God do not fast, how will we ever fit into the armor of God?

Fasting is not a requirement; it is a choice. It is a vow you choose to make to pursue God on a deeper level. The entire time that you are on a fast you are acknowledging God. When you are feeling hungry, empty, and weak, you connect with God without all the clutter. In that way fasting is a time vow. It is also a discipline vow. Fasting, especially a longer fast, strengthens your character in every area of your life.

If you do not have the power of a made-up mind to honor God with your body, you will be at the mercy of the lust of your flesh.

If failure is not a possibility, then success doesn’t mean anything.

Prayer and fasting were a big part of Jesus’s life. Why should it be such a small part of yours? If Jesus needed to fast, how much greater is our need to fast?

If we are not drawing closer to God, we are drifting farther from Him.

I am not in this for what I can get out of Jesus. I’m in this because He loved me first and gave Himself for me. I have nothing to go back to. I crossed that bridge a long time ago. The enemy, this world, difficult circumstances—it doesn’t matter. I’ll still be in church. I am never going to walk away from God.”
Jentezen Franklin, The Fasting Edge: Recover Your Passion. Recapture Your Dream. Restore Your Joy
“We must get to the place where we are desperate for God again. We must begin to desire Him more than food or drink. Let us be filled with the Bread of Life instead of the refuse of religion. Begin to make fasting a regular discipline, and see how God answers your hunger!”
Jentezen Franklin, Fasting: Opening the Door to a Deeper, More Intimate, More Powerful Relationship With God
“When you get stubborn and out of God’s will, usually it is the well-intentioned whom you will kick and mistreat.”
Jentezen Franklin, The Amazing Discernment of Women
“One of Satan’s greatest fears is that women will find out who they really are and what a significant role they play in his ultimate downfall. Women have not been relegated to mere privates in God’s army, rather they have been chosen as key players. The biblical record shows that God will use women to transform the world.”
Jentezen Franklin, The Amazing Discernment of Women
“The secret to tapping into the supernatural is for you to have the courage to do the natural first.”
Jentezen Franklin, The Fearless Life: Live Worry-Free No Matter What Happens
“The sixth sign that you are under spiritual attack is that old iniquities begin to resurface in your life. What is an iniquity? Some consider iniquities to be those old habits that your soul wants to fall back on when things don’t seem to be going your way—things like smoking, drug abuse, excessive drinking, visiting the bars or clubs, indulging the flesh.”
Jentezen Franklin, The Spirit of Python: Exposing Satan's Plan to Squeeze the Life Out of You
“I heard about a lady whose doctor told her, “You’ve got rabies.” Immediately, she pulled out a pad and pen and began writing. Thinking she was making out her will, the doctor said, “No, no, this doesn’t mean you’re going to die. There’s a cure.” “I know that,” she said. “I’m making a list of people I’m going to bite.”
Jentezen Franklin, The Amazing Discernment of Women
“Many women spend their lives pretending to be stupid because their husbands can’t handle an equal!”
Jentezen Franklin, The Amazing Discernment of Women
“One of the greatest tragedies of prayerlessness is the unemployment of angels. Millions of angels line up at heaven’s unemployment office when no one on earth prays to God. Angels are attracted to the place of prayer. In Acts 12:5, the church prayed without ceasing for Peter, and an angel came and touched him. When Peter awakened, the chains fell off as a result of the angel’s touch and he was freed.”
