BONDAGES OF THE MIND—SITUATIONS AND SOLUTIONS, PART 8
In Genesis 18:14 we hear the voice of God saying: “Behold I am the LORD, is anything too hard for me?” This is more than a simple faith statement, this is a bonafide declaration of God Almighty, asking a rhetorical question of those who would allow doubt, fear, wavering, to water down their faith level.
It was a reply to Sarah’s laughter when God once again declared she would have a biological child. The child of promise!
Situations and Solutions brings us face to face with whose report will we believe. Sarah was ninety years old, past the child-bearing age for women, but God is a boundary expander, and He removed all boundaries with that one statement.
What does it mean to us today in the twenty-first century? If God is truly everything we read of Him in The book, then can we take His Word and expect boundary expansion, our situation does not have to be the same as Sarah’s. What He revealed to me: No matter what the situation, the solution will always be The Word! The Greatest Weapon in the Universe. When our confidence level rises to flood level, and we trust God and His Word to intervene, we have found the solution, and we have peace, not anxiety, fear, doubt and out and out unbelief
This was a response to questions from me about praying for situations that were beyond my level of comprehension of how God needed to respond.
He spoke Isaiah 54:17 into my spirit: “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue rising against you in judgment you shall condemn.” The word condemn means to lock up in solitary confinement. They are neutered, castrated, not able to bear fruit, not join with likeminded words to form a cloud. Situation: weapon of….! Solution: weapon defused: by the uncompromised Word of the living God! No weapon formed shall prosper!
Romans 12:2 NKJV
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.
“Eat and drink!” he says to you, but his heart is not with you.
2 Corinthians 10:4
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds.
My heart within me is broken / Because of the prophets;
All my bones shake./ I am like a drunken man,
And like a man whom wine has overcome, / Because of the Lord, / And because of His holy words.
“Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.”
Listen now: The service has been separated into three parts, like a delectable meal prepared specially for you. Be blessed!
Scripture Faith Builder
Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the Name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and His anointing.”
