Faith, Faith Comes by the Word of God

I Walk by His Word – A Declaration of Faith

By His Word

Jesus Heals a Man at the Pool of Bethesda

John 5:1-15:

After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, having five porches. In these lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame, paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water; then whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well of whatever disease he had.

Now a certain man was there WHO HAD AN INFIRMITY 38 YEARS. When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition A LONG TIME, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?” The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me.” Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.” And IMMEDIATELY the man was MADE WELL, took up his bed, and walked.

Declaration of Faith

Lord, I walk by faith and not by sight. I walk by faith and not by length of illness. I walk by faith and not by doctors’ reports. I walk by faith and not by what is impossible with man. I walk by Your Powerful Word and not by the limitations of this earthly realm. I walk by my inheritance in Christ not by what others say about me. I walk by Your death and resurrection, not by the works of the devil.

By His stripes, I am healed, my child is healed, those that I am praying for are healed, in Jesus’ mighty name, amen.

Spiritual Warfare

It Takes Faith Like a Child to Win Spiritual Battles

2 cor 10 4

 

For the weapons of our warfare are not by human might but Holy Spirit powered for the pulling down of strongholds.

2 CORINTHIANS 10:4

“So they rose early in the morning and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.” And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying:

“Praise the Lord,
For His mercy endures forever.”

Now when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated. For the people of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir to utterly kill and destroy them. And when they [Ammon and Moab] had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another.

So when Judah came to a place overlooking the wilderness, they looked toward the multitude; and there were their dead bodies, fallen on the earth. No one had escaped.” [2 Chronicles 20:20-24]

Worship is a powerful weapon against the enemy

When we lift up His Holy name, praising and worshiping Him, it brings confusion upon the enemy. Glory to God! We love to worship You, and we thank You that it also breaks the power of darkness off our lives.

May we humble ourselves as little children and worship You freely and wholeheartedly.

Autism, Healing, Neuroimmune Disorders, Prophetic Words

Parents and Caregivers Standing on the Promises of God for Your Autistic Child’s Healing – A Prophetic Word

A Word for Parents and Caregivers believing God for Healing for Child

A handy dandy Venn diagram because, nerdy.

 

Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all!

EPHESIANS 3:20 TPT

I have a teenage son on the autism spectrum who is also afflicted with PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal infections), a nightmare disorder that is best described (in my opinion) as a tormenting nightmare for both my son and me. Beginning in June 2018, I have been living a Spirit led, fasted life, standing on the Word, “These things only come out by fasting and prayer.” Mark 9:29

The Lord spoke this word to me to share with the small group of women whom I fast and pray with for healing from the same conditions as my son.

He also told me to share it here because it is for those who are walking by faith and not by sight [2 Corinthians 5:7] and who’ll…ONLY BELIEVE! [Mark 5:36]

The Lord said to STRETCH your imagination regarding your child, his (her) healing, and his (her) future, and stretch your imagination for yourself too, for your stolen hopes and dreams, seemingly dead when because of the time needed to care for a child whose health was stolen from him (her).

You can relate to these half-truths and twistings of the enemy to get you to doubt God. Take those thoughts captive and make them obey Christ!

He immediately reminded me that the enemy would keep trying to bring his lies to me so I limit my imagination and faith for son’s healing. He said the accuser will come and say ‘you are selfish to want your son healed, to want a future for yourself too because you are serving a special needs child’.

The truth is, yes, I serve my son, but it is not selfish for me to seek God for His healing promises to restore my son’s health and Psalm 139:16 future to be independent and have a family of his own – a dream he shares with me as we stand together for his healing. The Lord does not condemn me, His beloved daughter, for wanting my dreams resurrected too, the very dreams I believe came from Him. At the center of everything regarding my son is LOVE.

Do not allow him to use and twist what is beautiful about you (e.g. your servant’s heart, selflessness, etc.) to condemn you.

Humble yourself under the mighty hand of God, resist the devil, and He WILL flee [James 4:7].

The Lord reminded, “It does not make a person more righteous to serve and care for a special needs vs. a typical child. You gladly and with honor care for your special needs child, but it does not add to the righteousness you already have in Christ. Your righteousness and identity are in Me alone. So imagine as BIG as you can for your son and yourself because I will exceed it” [Ephesians 3:10]. Feelings of additional righteousness for serving a special needs child is a lie to get tenderhearted moms, dads, and caretakers like us to limit our faith as well as cause pride and idolatry.

Guard your heart, guard your heart, guard your heart

Be careful with whom you share what you’re believing God for regarding your child’s healing (even with other believers). When you begin to REALLY stand on the Word of God, you will get opposition, and sharing that with the ‘wrong’ people will invite naysaying and sometimes cruel attacks. Instead of them being happy for where you’re at with your faith and growth from God, some will try to talk you out of it and pull you down to their faith level, instead of turning to what the Word says about it, “I believe. Help my unbelief.” Also, some believe their children are called to suffer and them as well and won’t even ask the Lord for healing. Even Job was healed in the end.

Keep stretching your imagination for your child, his (her) healing, and his (her) future for yours too.

See him (her)…

  • walking, leaping, and praising God!
  • restored in health (in every way) and independent.
  • as a father or mother with a godly spouse and family.
  • prospering in every way.
  • free from torment, a captive set free.
  • so loved by a Father who is willing to heal, who came to heal and set us free, who wants your child well.

See yourself…

  • dreaming again.
  • dusting off your old journals, pulling out the prophetic words spoken about you, and speaking them out again, in faith and in Jesus’ name. (And go do it).
  • as the mother, father, or caretaker of a healed child, caretaker no more, whose identity and worth is in Christ alone, not in the title ‘special needs caretaker’ or what you do.
  • as a captive set free too.
  • ministering to and freely giving to others, in Jesus’ name, the healing He gave to your child.
  • free, no longer a caretaker.
  • healed in your body from the trauma and toll of caretaking.

Prayer

Lord, whomever this word is before, that it stirs their faith and is received fully and as revelation knowledge. That they, ‘only believe,’ according to Your Word. May they know You as Healer as well as Savior because You are those things and so much more. I’m in agreement with anyone who reads this Word and receives it by faith. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.

Little by little I am seeing my son being healed before my eyes. Glory to the Lamb!

P.S. This word is for ANY special needs parent or caregiver who’ll stretch his (her) imagination with God.

Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination!

EPHESIANS 3:20-21 (TPT)

Faith, Prayer, Purpose and Plans of God

Intercessors – Praying GOD’S Will Into the Earth

Cover th earth in prayer

Intercessors

Every move of God, big or small, was prayed into the earth by intercessors at the obedience of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes through one on fire saint or the prayers of many and all in tune with the heart and voice of God.

Answer His call to pray:

  • HIS Will into the earth as it is in heaven [Matthew 6:10] in every area of your life, your sphere of influence, and the secret things He reveals to You.
  • into existence to thwart, cancel, and destroy the plans, assignments and works of the devil upon the face of the earth.

Then, each move, plan, and purpose for the church and every son and daughter should be backed up continually by the fervent, effective prayers of His people.

If you don’t have a vital and trusted prayer partner, ask the Lord to send you one.

Don’t let the enemy or anyone convince you to underestimate the power of prayer.

Encouragement, Faith, God's Word, Healing, Jesus

Lord, I believe; help my unbelief, and He is So Good, He Does

Help my unbelief Lord

Lord, I believe; help my unbelief.
Lord, I believe; help my unbelief.
And He is SO good, He does.

 

So He asked his father, “How long has this been happening to him?”

And he said, “FROM CHILDHOOD. And often he has thrown him both into the fire and into the water to destroy him. But if You can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.”

Jesus said to him, “IF you CAN believe, ALL things ARE possible to him who believes.”
Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”

When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, “Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more!” Then the spirit cried out, convulsed him greatly, and came out of him. And he became as one dead, so that many said, “He is dead.” But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose.” ~ Mark 9:21-27 (CAPS and bold my emphasis)

We see in Mark 9, a desperate father who sought Jesus for his son’s healing and deliverance, and like all of us who’ve been in a dark and terrible situation for far too long, it becomes harder and harder to hope in those dark valleys, but God is SO good, He even helps us with our faith when we ask Him.

Immediately upon the asking, mercy and compassion showed up and honored a father’s desperate prayer for faith help. Jesus’ answer – only love – He totally set his son free.

O God, we cannot measure Your goodness, mercy, and faithfulness, but we know Your name is Faithful and True [Revelations 19:11].
