The Mental Battle is Real – So is its Victory

It’s time to no longer allow the enemy to take bits of truth and turn it into a twisted daggar.

This last year has been mentally challenging for many of us. But! We with the power of the Holy Spirit working through us can break through those strongholds that are twisting our mind into a frenzie!

Those areas that take a piece of truth and mix it with an assumption, add in some hurt, dissapointment, anger and resentment and you get a fortress in your mind the enemy has built walls around.

Keeping that fortress may allow you a time of self pity, which can feel justified at first, but it will always hurt more. Self pity is the lock and chain around the fortress. We must be willing to acknowledge self pity is wrong and that it is justifying our sinful response instead of acknowledging God’s ability to set us free.

The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ,being ready to punish every act of disobedience, when your own obedience [as a church] is complete. – 2 Corinthians 10:4-6 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2Corinthians10:4-6&version=AMP

The only things that can break that is the truth of the word of God, the power of the Holy Spirit, repenting of holding on to those lying thoughts as truth and a determination to stop mulling over those painful thoughts after we receive forgiveness.

The next step is putting into action a plan for a new course. Finally seeing it through. You can get help all you want after that. But if the first steps are not taken it won’t do a lick of good. Conquer the battle in the mind first.

This is my testimony this week. I pray it helps you on your own journey of freedom.

Victory in your Testimony

Get ready for a massive wave of revival to sweep through this generation! God is doing something huge . Last night I had a dream that I was back in public high school school. I was in a large room of students during lunchtime and I began to share my testimony. It’s interesting because my testimony was as if I shared it right now as an adult. But the whole room became silent as I shared. I shared through lunch and then my teacher came in who would normally have whipped the class into shape and have me sit down but she didn’t she just stood there. After I was done sharing my testimony I asked who wanted prayer and 30 kids came eager to be prayed for. The school bell rang so I didn’t have a chance to pray for them and it was so painful to feel like I missed that chance as they had to walk to their other classes. I went up to my teacher and thanked her so much for allowing me to keep on sharing. She said she could not stop listening and thanked me. 

The feeling of joy and exhilaration when I woke up is something I will never forget. I am praying today for all those in classroom settings that they will be bold and share their testimony of faith. 

Romans 10:14-17 But how will people call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how will they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher messenger? And how will they preach unless they are commissioned and sent for that purpose? Just as it is written and forever remains written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news of good things!” But they did not all pay attention to the good news of salvation; for Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?” So faith comes from hearing what is told, and what is heard comes by the preaching of the message concerning Christ.”

It doesn’t matter big or small nobody can argue with your own personal testimony. They might argue your theology but never your testimony. 

One of my favorite songs when I was little was Be Bold! Be Strong! It truly has been my anthem.

🎼BE BOLD – BE STRONG- FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD IS WITH YOU. I wont be afraid, no no no, I won’t be dismayed, no no no. For I’m walking in Faith and Victory, Come on! Walkin in Faith and Victory. For the Lord your God is with You. 

Why dont you run through the camp, tell all the people get ready, get ready. Why dont you run through the camp tell all the people get ready! 🎼

GET READY FOR THE CHANCE TO SHARE YOUR TESTIMONY

Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our God day and night. 

11“And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.” 

Revelations 12:10-11

Emerson had it right! 2017

There is much wisdom in this quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson

“As long as a man stands in his own way, everything seems to be in his way.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

 I want this year to be the year that NOTHING STANDS IN OUR WAY FROM ADVANCEMENT in our marriages, families, church body and God’s people all around the world. 

Our fears, lack of courage, and doubt in God’s word can prevent us from attaining massive Victories. It’s  time to repent and renounce those lies. I am not letting anything hold me back in 2017! Its time for ADVANCEMENT! Time for CLARITY! Time for FAVOR OF PROVISIONS for Big Time Dreams. This is a year when God is blowing the dust off of prophetic words from the past. BUT YOU must be the one to pick them up, read them and declare your alignment with them. We will never be the same after this year! I believe it and I declare it!!
