Please Agree with Me in Prayer

This post is going to be a bit different. Tonight, I need to ask anyone who is reading this to agree with me in a prayer of healing.

Matthew 18:19 says: “Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.”

I am believing this. I am putting my complete faith in it. & if you all would come with me on this, I would so appreciate it.

For the last 7 months now, I have had a feeling of lightheadedness from the time I wake up to the time I go to sleep. I constantly feel close to fainting & more exhausted than I ever have before. I have headaches, blurry vision, & a few other symptoms. Needless to say, I have been fighting off a lot of fear in these past months. I have been to multiple doctors, & have finally gotten an MRI scan scheduled for January 28th. The fear, of course, is that I am going to receive bad news. My mind has a way of jumping to things like tumors or MS. These symptoms are impacting my life every day, & I just feel my strength depleting more & more. Thank God that HE is our strength, right?

So, here’s my prayer. I am believing 100% that these symptoms disappear by the 28th. That I walk into that office completely healed & restored by the grace of God. That I walk into my scan KNOWING that I am already healed & have already been treated by the TRUE physician & healer. I am believing this with all of my heart, & I hope that you will agree with me on this.

Lord,
Tonight I come to you on my knees, asking you to heal your daughter in the precious name of Jesus. Please Lord, take away my lightheadedness, my exhaustion, each symptom that I am having. Only you know what is going on in my body, and God, I just pray that you would divinely take care of whatever is causing me to feel this way. On the 28th when I go in for my scan, I just pray that I am walking into the doctor’s office already healed, without any symptoms, & in complete confidence that my God has already taken care of the situation. But most of all, I just pray that Your will be done. If it is not in your will Lord, take me through whatever comes my way. And if it is your will to heal me, thank you. I know that you are a healer, even though I am not yet healed. And I look to you so humbly because you are such a loving and faithful God. I love you and praise you in Jesus’ holy name.
Amen.

If you are agreeing with me on this, will you please pray this prayer with me? & please let me know in the comments. I would really appreciate it & be so very encouraged by it. Share with your friends, too, the more people bowing their knee to God, the better! & of course, I will keep you updated on what He is doing. I am so believing in the power of the Lord & the power of prayer on this one. Thank you for believing with me. 🙂

Freedom In Redemption

When we fail, so many times we fall into the belief that there is no hope for us anymore. We feel like failures, and put our faith in that feeling. We decide to believe the lie that God cannot redeem us, instead of leaning on the truth that there is NOTHING that our God cannot redeem. With this mentality, we become less effective and less powerful for the Kingdom. Faith is about truth, not feelings. Feelings change, because they are fleeting and unreliable. But truth is certain, constant and unchanging. Truth is something that we can confidently place all of our hope in. Knowing this, why would we allow our faith to be wavered by feelings? Why wouldn’t we lean more on truth, knowing that it is deeply rooted and will not differ? Instead, we depend on our feelings to lead us, forgetting the truth about the character of the Lord we serve. Let me remind you. Our God is a redeemer (Job 19:25-27), abounding in mercy (Psalm 145:9) and forgiveness (1 John 1:9), who makes all things new (2 Corinthians 5:17). Your failure does not hold enough power that the all-powerful King will think you to be beyond redemption. Our God is fiercely and forcefully strong for His children, and He is not intimidated by your sin. He knows exactly how to break you from your bondage, which He so humbly proved when He died on the cross with you in mind.

Facing Your Faith

I was saved about 2 years ago. At that time, my heart filled with constant, unshakable joy like I had never known before. Now, 2 years after Jesus filled my life with hope, purpose and a future…I am finally facing my faith.

When we make the decision to follow God with our lives, there is inevitably going to be a season where we are called to “face our faith.” This is the time when you begin to struggle and feel the very real pain of living in this world. This is when your faith and dedication to the Lord is being tested. For me, this time has shown itself since I got married 3 months ago. As an 18 year old girl who went straight from living with her parents in Colorado to her husband in California, I had a lot of adjusting to do all at once. I was suddenly dropped into a situation where I needed to learn how to love my new husband, take care of our house and his needs, find friends, get connected and start serving. All of this with an unexpected full-time job and a very tough ongoing situation at my husband’s work. I have been very overwhelmed, questioning if I have enough strength for all that I’ve taken on. I find my heart in a state of fear instead of joy, and my mind in chaos rather than peace.

Thankfully, I serve a God of greater than! He showed Himself in a church service and a conversation last night, just to show me that He is greater than my struggles.

The sermon last night was named “Get Up.” Must I say more? It was about those seasons that challenge you more than you think you can handle. Those situations that test you and break you down. But mostly, it was about that dream that was lost, that opportunity that was shattered, that hope that you had once but have lost along the way. The pastor spoke very bold and confident words over the congregation, telling us that our season of struggle is over, and the resurrecting power of Jesus is here to tell us to GET UP! He spoke from Luke 8:40-56, but the verse that stood out to me the most was verse 52.

“Meanwhile, all the people were wailing and mourning for her. ‘Stop wailing,’ Jesus said. ‘She is not dead but asleep.'”

If you read the entire passage, you realize that Jesus is saying this about a girl who He raises from the dead. That power, that resurrecting power that raised that girl from the dead, that raised Jesus Himself from the dead, is within us. And these things that we thought were dead, actually are just sleeping in God’s eyes. The pastor spoke about this, telling us that God can take that marriage and bring it back to life. He can take that business and bring it back to life. He can fill your life with purpose again, and your heart with joy. Because we serve a God of the second chance, the third chance, the millionth chance.

He wants to give you patience-ask for it. He wants to give you strength-seek it. He wants to give you hope-knock at the door. And don’t quit knocking until that door swings open and Jesus hands it to you Himself.

Trust Him for the impossible, pray BOLD prayers because bold prayers honor the Lord! He doesn’t need to see you succeed, He needs to see your faith.

So it’s time for you to face your faith?

God is greater than that. GET UP. Verse 53 and 54. “They laughed at Him, knowing that she was dead. But He took her by the hand and said, ‘My child, get up!‘”

Romans 8:11

“And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of His Spirit who lives in you.”
