I wasn’t going to blog today instead I was mapping out what my next blog was going to be about also setting up my schedule for this along with next week when my spirit said, “you need to blog”. The reason my spirit is leading me is because the devil has really been trying (noticed I said trying) to come against me, my family and those that I love.
Last week I battled food poisoning. Oh my gosh! I never ever want to go through that again. It was the worst! I couldn’t control my bodily functions, I had chills, I got hot, I shook … it was crazy! And on top of that, I had to deal with my three-year-old all by myself. At one point I was in so much pain, I felt like my body was being pulled apart and if I didn’t have anything worth living for I think I would have said Lord take me.
Praise the Lord I know who I am in Him!
I knew this was an attack of the devil and I was done, no I wasn’t going to let him defeat me.
A few years ago Kenneth Copeland ministries sent a card with healing scriptures on it and I pulled it out, read every single one, some of the scriptures twice, even three times. I sang “I am the Lord that healeth thee” over and over. But most importantly, I made the scriptures personal.
Mark 11:24 says
For this reason I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe (trust and be confident) that it is granted to you, and you will [get it].
I said Lord, as it says in Mark 11:24 whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that is granted to you and you will get it. Lord, I am asking for my healing and then I went into the specifics of what was bothering me. I made it personal.
Then I went on to Matthew 19:26
But Jesus looked at them and said, With men this is impossible, but all things are possible with God.
Once again I took the scripture and applied it. I said Lord Just like it says in Matthew 19:26 all things are possible because like it says in Mark 11:24 I believe, trust and put my confidence in you.
I don’t care how bad you are feeling, whatever it is, use His Word and apply it to your situation. Don’t just read it, receive from it, and keep reading it until you do. Once you have got it and you will know when, apply it, and make it personal to your situation. It will work for you too.
Back to my food poisoning immediately after I made it personal I started to feel better and anytime my mind tried to wander I put it right back on God and His Word.
Every good and every perfect gift is from God (James 1:17) For from Him and to Him are all things (Romans 11:36) He made perfect bodies, He gives us good and perfect gifts, so when something comes along that is not good or perfect you know that is not of Him.
Even though my circumstances all around me in the natural were telling me I was sick, needed to go to the emergency room almost caused me to panic, I knew in the supernatural where my heavenly Father operates that I was perfect. Which means no sickness or disease… I just needed my supernatural self to manifest in the natural. Praise the Lord I knew how!
His Word is the Key! Spend time with Him in His Word and I can’t say this enough apply apply apply it to your life, I promise it will make a difference if you let it.
Whew, I have ministered to myself and I pray that this helps someone else out there too.
If you need someone to stand in prayer or have a prayer request, leave me a comment and I will stand with you.God bless
