God’s People are Called to Live in Perfect Peace

perfect peace

You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.

ISAIAH 26:3

God’s Word says we can live in perfect peace because our mind is fixed on Him, because we trust in Him.

This means and entails….

He IS His Word (John 1:1; 14), so we fix our mind on it alone in every situation. As His children, we are called to be in the daily, regular process of getting to know His Word more and more, allowing it to renew our minds and build our faith. Thus, whatever comes, we can stay in perfect peace because we are able to take Him for His Word above what we see.

We can come to a place where we know His Word well enough to apply it to every circumstance because we have quick access to it as it’s become rooted in our hearts and minds. We don’t have to be anxious for anything or shaking in our Holy Spirit filled bodies every time something is thrown our way if we know our Father through His Word and choose to commune with His Spirit.

Over the past nearly two years, the Lord, through His Word, has deeply rooted in me what He says about healing, but lately, I have been stressing about a “seeming” threat to my finances. The other day, I said, “Enough, this is not Your will, Lord,” then, I stirred up the Word within me and spoke it out loud and said this is what the truth is and that He is my Source and that He will supply all the needs of me and my son according to His riches and glory [Philippians 4:19]. Period. Amen. He cannot lie.

So, I will continue to apply His Word, believing and not doubting, regarding this situation until all the “wobbliness” to my faith about it is gone, knowing all will be well. This doesn’t mean I do nothing in the natural but that I pray about it all so He leads me and I stay Spirit led about it every step of the way.

The NAME Above Every Name – A Prayer for Healing

The name above every name - a prayer for healing

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

PHILIPPIANS 2:9-11

Prayer

Lord, we rebuke every affliction attacking, (name), at the root and command them to go and never return in the name of Jesus. Grace us to keep our eyes solely on You, Lord Jesus, and You ARE the Word.

Let the storms around, (name), melt like wax in Your presence. All afflictions have a name and You are the NAME above all names so we squash every bit of sickness, disease, the demonic affecting, (name) in JESUS’ name, amen.

Pray for the Church

O God, Shake, Break, and Wake the Church

shake break and wake your church Lord

Prayer

O God,

Shake, break, and wake the Church.

It’s been passive and way out of balance for far too long – either hyper-grace without loving correction or painfully and destructively religious.

The enemy is steamrolling over the church (as His Body) and laughing while doing so. Taking a centimeter of land here, a few feet there, over time, until wicked strongholds are formed, until principalities and powers of darkness have erected permanent structures of pure evil. Um, Planned Parenthood. 

Mighty God, shake the church from its slumber. Its passivity is allowing evil to run rampant in this nation and upon the face of the earth. Little by little, the enemy has been taking ground and normalizing all sorts of wickedness and all You’ve heard from our lips is – ‘grace, grace, grace’, ‘that’s not loving’, ‘I don’t want to offend anyone’.

Lord, give us deeply rooted and abiding spiritual revelation that we are vessels that show the way to turn from sin, to bring restoration and healing – this is true love.

Sin brings death. Leaving others in their sin and allowing the enemy to have them for eternity is the most unloving thing imaginable.

Lord God, break our hearts for what breaks Yours. “O Lord, You are our Father;
we are the clay, and You are our Potter; we are all the work of Your hand” (Isaiah 64:8). Mold and shape us into Your image, keep us on the narrow path with You.

Father, wake us. We prophesy in the name of Jesus, “the hour has come for you to wake from sleep” (Romans 13:11), for we “are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober” (1 Thessalonians 5:5-6). Church, “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you” (Isaiah 60:1). God’s people, “Wake up, and strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your works complete in the sight of my God. Remember, then, what you received and heard. Keep it, and repent. If you will not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come against you” (Revelation 3:2-3). “For anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, ‘Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you’” (Ephesians 5:14).

We command scales and veils to fall off the church’s eyes, we command all dry bones to come alive, we loose Your resurrection power to the church.

All in Jesus’ mighty name we pray, amen.

Warriors for God, please share so prayers stretch everywhere.

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.

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)
