When Tim was so very ill and at deaths door we were still hoping (wishing) for a cure to 'fix ' his heart. We grabbed at anything in the natural we could find. But after many different therapies we tried - each failed to 'do the trick ' and make him better. Thank God that He is so loving and never gives up on us, any one of us!
When we heard Mark 11:23 read on TV it had the potential to change our lives forever. But - it was up to Tim and I to choose to believe God 's Word and begin saying what God says to move any mountain in our path.
Oh, it would have been so easy for us to click on another channel and not listen to this teacher any longer. Why? Because at this time we were in a church that did not encourage us to listen to any other ministers outside of our own denomination. Also, we were not taught that this scripture literally meant what it said and that we could absolutely believe what it said was true for us today.
Some of you reading this newsletter may be in the midst of terrible financial problems, family problems, work problems or physical problems. And - you may never have been taught to take hold of God 's Word and receive it for yourself.
I am here to tell you that if you make the decision to choose to leave your 'spiritual ' comfort zone and allow God to work in your life by speaking forth the scriptures over your situations (mountains) you too will see the victory.
Choose to believe the Word of God over anyone or anything. God works by faith (absolute trust in Him.) He expects us to live by faith, everyday, in every situation in our lives. He is waiting for us to speak forth His Word back to Him so He can move in our behalf to change things.
I can 't take the first step for you - But I can promise you that the moment you take the first step in faith and begin speaking forth God 's promises that are written in the scriptures, God will begin working in the spirit realm and you will see your victory!
How can I make this bold claim? Because God is not a respecter of persons. His will is the same for everyone, and He always backs up His Word.
I also want to tell you that you don 't fully have to understand the scripture when you begin speaking it over your 'mountain. '
We sure didn 't when we began to speak to heart disease (the mountain) to get off of Tim 's body. But we latched onto how to operate God 's way and the devil and sickness knew it must bow its knee to the name of Jesus!
Then we began to read the Bible and learned how to operate in faith using Mark 11:23-24 as a framework. Our faith grew and we began to believe God for bigger things (Romans 10:17).
Don 't be afraid to step out and believe God. He truly desires to bless you and not withhold anything from you. Ephesians 3:20 says that God is able to do exceedingly above what we can think or imagine according to the power working within us.
Proverbs 4:20-22 says to "Keep My Words in your heart for they are Life and Health to a mans whole body." Mat. 12:34 - If you have God 's Words in your heart then you will speak them out of your mouth.
So - go for it, and start commanding those mountains to move out of your path of life and stop blocking you from receiving anything that God has for you and your family. God is ready to do a great work in your life!
