Lay Hands on Yourself

pt1178_350x383_ON_PAGE-stretched

Sometimes you just have to lay hands on yourself. You have to stir it up. There is no mountain too high, no valley too low, that you can not cross it. Remember, He goes before you, He makes every crooked path straight.

What are you facing today? Speak to it! If you have His Holy Spirit then you have all you need, because He said all authority has been given to you, you will do greater things than He did because you have His Holy Spirit in you. He said to not be afraid, you will have troubles in this world, but He has overcome this world. He has redeemed us on the cross and He has defeated death through the resurrection.

What can man do to you? God holds life and death in His hand, there is no need to fear. Do not look around you, look to Him. He said though a thousand fall at your left side and ten thousand at your right, do not fear because it will not come near you.

He opens doors no man can shut, you are blessed and highly favored of God.  You have been redeemed, He has called you by name, you share in the inheritance, you are a son/daughter of God. You have been set apart for a higher calling, you have been anointed to preach the Good News to set the captives free. You are free!

Call forth those things that are not as though they were. Declare with your mouth, prophecy over your life, over your family, your relationships, your ministry… be about the Fathers business. From the days of John the Baptist until the present time, the kingdom of heaven has endured violent assault, and violent men seize it by force [as a precious prize—a share in the heavenly kingdom is sought with most ardent zeal and intense exertion].

Walk in love, because love covers a multitude of sins. Forgive those who have offended you, freely you have been forgiven, so freely forgive others.

Do not believe the bad reports, do not rely solely on what your eyes see, I say put on your spiritual glasses and see as God sees. You are not a victim! You are above and not beneath, you are the head and not the tail.

If God is for us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?]  He who did not withhold or spare [even] His own Son but gave Him up for us all, will He not also with Him freely and graciously give us all [other] things? Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect [when it is] God Who justifies [that is, Who puts us in right relation to Himself? Who shall come forward and accuse or impeach those whom God has chosen? Will God, Who acquits us?] Who is there to condemn [us]? Will Christ Jesus (the Messiah), Who died, or rather Who was raised from the dead, Who is at the right hand of God actually pleading as He intercedes for us? Who shall ever separate us from Christ’s love? Shall suffering and affliction and tribulation? Or calamity and distress? Or persecution or hunger or destitution or peril or sword? Even as it is written, For Thy sake we are put to death all the day long; we are regarded and counted as sheep for the slaughter.

Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us.For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

So, my friend, remember the promise. Remember who you are. You are not the old you that was once swayed by the circumstance, tossed to and fro on the waves. Your feet are firmly planted on the rock that will not be moved.

Put your hand on yourself, do not wait for someone else to do it… you do it!

You have been called for a purpose.
