After talking with Jessica this passed Sunday after church, there was just complete peace. I think I can speak for both us when I say something powerful happened during the service. We have stepped into an area that is just completely full of joy. There are major areas we have both been feeling attacked in, BUT we had to put the devil back in his place and remind him who we are in Christ, that satan has absolutely no right to even attack us. We have been walking in the promises of God and speaking continuously over ourselves and each other the word of God in every area of our lives. Sunday, all I could really say was, it’s done!!!!!! We don’t have to fight, we don’t have to cry out to God, we don’t have to beg God, we simply just have to receive His promises by faith and it is done. He has already done everything He needed to do when He sent Jesus to die on the cross for us. 1 John 3:8 “…The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.” He took every curse, every disease, every LIE of the devil and completely destroyed them that we may walk in the fullness of Him, Jesus our Lord.
Last week I dove into a lot of scripture of asking without doubting. We are able to receive WHATEVER, we ask for, as long as we ask in faith (and as long as it lines up with His word – which promises for children do). James 1:6 “But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.” and Matthew 21:21 “Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done.” We must train our minds to constantly focus on His everlasting word to destroy that doubt. Just like any habit, it takes time to build. Habits and hobbies don’t just start from a one time thing. It takes 21 days to form a habit, so you must train your mind to go the word any time you have a form of doubt creep in. Truth is, we are flesh so it’s natural to allow negative, doubting, and fearful thoughts to scramble around in our mind at times, but we must take every thought captive! 2 Corinthians 10:5 “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” Instead of focusing on the natural – we need to focus on the supernatural. This is a process, and the habit for speaking His word over yourself starts with reading and digging deep into His word. You see, we can encourage and share everything we are learning and the scriptures we have found to stand on, but you must do the same as well. We will continue to speak these truths that we have found, but you also must grow to love His word and learn to speak these promises over yourself until you believe that it is done for you too!
We have definitely come a long way in this journey, and this was a process for us as well to learn to speak His word over ourselves. “The word of God is sharper than any two edged sword” Hebrews 4:12. It will pierce all those doubts, fears, and disbelief. I pray you come to a place where you fully believe that His promises are yes and amen, that His promises are already available to you if you just receive without doubting through studying and absorbing His word until it becomes part of you. It is done.
