Are you in a fight ~ for your health, your finances, to see the promises of God manifest in your life? I am and I am asking ‘ Will you stand believing God’s Word with me?’
I am in a fight right now for dental health. The dentist yesterday said I needed two teeth extracted, one on the top and one on the bottom, bone grafts, implants and did I mention money and lots of it?
Nothing is impossible for our God ~ nothing is too hard for Him to do. Any unbelief I may have is countered by the truth of God’s Word and if He said it I believe it.
Fact is fact but the Truth of God’s Word trumps fact.
This morning God excited my heart about something that will benefit you too ~ at first I thought it would take away from answering the Bible study questions in Beckoned by the King, but the truth of the matter is this. The chapter we are on is “Heth” which refers to God’s Word being the boundary for our lives and how the Word is our hedge of protection.
Ironically (?) the one word the Lord gave me for 2014 is ‘Definition’ as in His Word defining the boundaries of my life…this visit with the dentist has opened up the opportunity to have my life defined by His Word should I choose to take a stand on His Word of Truth.
Choosing to stand on the Word of Truth is my decision and I am hoping you will walk with me and stand with me. Your presence strengthens me and helps me to fight the battle and stay determined to win.
Oh! and do you want to know a secret? Its always been easy for me to pray for you ~ there has never been a time when I have laid hands on someone and God has not healed them…praying and believing for myself is soooo much harder. Thankfully, I have only ever had migraines and the Lord healed and freed me of them and all round I am pretty healthy.
This morning the Lord said, ‘Start declaring. Start declaring My Word and your situation will be shaped and defined by what I have spoken. Begin with Proverbs 2:1-8″.
The great thing is, you can do this too! I am going to really appreciate the comforting strength of your presence here, but as you join me in speaking out these declarations over your life~wow! Just watch and see what God does in your life! So let’s get started!
I receive the Word of God and treasure His Word within my heart. God’s Word hidden in my heart is a guard against fear, doubt and unbelief and I make a point of listening for and paying attention to skillful and godly wisdom. I turn my heart in that same direction while asking the Holy Spirit to help me understand all He wants me to know.
The Lord hears my voice as I cry out to Him for understanding and insight.
He will be my Teacher and will help me to understand how to have a reverential heart of worship for Him as I receive His teaching in my heart.
His Presence will overshadow me, He will speak to me. He will be a very real Presence in my life and as He speaks His words of wisdom, out of His mouth, flowing into my spirit, knowledge and understanding shall come.
He will uncover for me the sound and godly wisdom He has tucked away just for me. He will reveal to me exactly what I need for this moment.
I have chosen to be His Daughter ~ even though He chose me first and called me His Beloved. I have yielded to His love and made a decision to yield my life to His. As a result of that melding, He has become my Shield, my Fortress, my Rock of Refuge. He stands watch over me. He guards my path and preserves my way as I walk in His purposes for me.
His promises are all Yes and Amen! Glory to God for being the God of unfailing, unchanging promises!
With a humble heart of love and thanksgiving for all He has done!
