Word of God is Our Antidote

Kathy — The Word of God is our antidote.  The Word is our bulldozer.  The Word has the power to displace the emotional residue pushed ashore by the tide or even by a tidal wave of circumstances.  So our part of the process is to clear out the blockages within self by agreeing with the Word and by speaking the Word and telling every contrary force to be removed! (Matt. 17:20)  And the truth is that if stress, anxiety, fear, anger, frustration, guilt and confusion are removed and God’s Peace is in the house, what’s going on outside does not hold the same threat.


In His Name Mountains Move

MichelleMountainSunsetAs the people of God assemble today may they hold one another up in prayer and share with one another by exhortation that the mountains of difficulty and impossibility that stand in their way are nothing in the sight of their loving Father and He is a mountain mover. Matt.17:20,TPT—“He told them, “It was because of your lack of faith. I promise you, if you have faith inside of you no bigger than the size of a small mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move away from here and go over there,’ and you will see it move! There is nothing you couldn’t do!


Mountains To Hills To Victory

Kathy — Mountains To Hills To Victory — While focused on circumstances, the Holy Spirit instructed me to speak to the “mountain” within. In a matter of seconds the Lord made me to understand that outward circumstances were not the real problem.  God could, in seconds, remove every hindrance and pull every devil off my back and, if that were best for me, He would.  So as good as that sounds, there is obviously something better. One of God’s principles is that He looks at the heart, not the outward appearance.  He deals with the root rather than just the fruit.  If my problem went away but could return and cause the same reaction in me, then the mountain is not really gone, it has just become a hill temporarily . . . until floods of life’s circumstances cause it to swell again. Matt.17:20,TPT—“He told them, “It was because of your lack of faith. I promise you, if you have faith inside of you no bigger than the size of a small mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move away from here and go over there,’ and you will see it move! There is nothing you couldn’t do!”


Contradict Darkness

It is not enough to simply confront the “giants” of this season of history. They must LightShinePathbe contradicted. Jesus contradicted the powers of darkness. In Matt.17 a man has an epileptic son who falls into fire and water. He takes the son to Jesus’ disciples but they only confront the demon. The man appeals to Jesus. He not only confronted the demon but He contradicted it. The boy was completely whole from that moment. Jn.14:12, Amp — I assure you and most solemnly say to you, anyone who believes in Me [as Savior] will also do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these [in extent and outreach], because I am going to the Father.”
