Do you like the condition of your environment?? I mean the one you carry with you! How are things around you?
How do you feel??
Do you often experience turmoil, still? The same things happening, over and over? Your not still on that semi-permanent "roller coaster" ride, are you?
There is another post here, titled, Get Off The Merry Go Round. It deals with more physical changed within ourselves and our decision making; here, I'd like to mention the spiritual aspect.
The good news is, as a child of God and having received His unconditional gift of forgiveness and grace, we now have authority over our spiritual environment around us.
Luke 10:19 NLT
Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you.
Jeremiah 1:12 NIV (also in photo above) The LORD said to me, "You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled."
**When you hear, receive and obey the word of God you are given the power to decree the word.**
Job 22:28 Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.
We can decree something - and expect Gods Word to perform (Jerimiah 1:12) and bring about what it is we ask (1 John 5:14). This is our inheritance (Isaiah 54:17) as a born-again child of God
This doesn't depend on how 'good' we are; thank goodness, too! It all depends on who He is, and what HE said and promised. So go on and expect it! Continue to call those things that you need, into existence. Line it up with His Word, and what He has promised you....and you cant go wrong.
Finally, don't let darkness set the agenda!
Use your God-given authority - and command the devil out. Then ask God to continue to cover you, always (it acts also an expression of your faith).
Just believe. And watch things turn. For your good!
Dear Father God, I ask that you show me just who I am, in YOU - and teach me to walk and act in that authority you have given me to walk in. All the time! You desire mw blessed and happy, full of your joy. Cause me to believe what You tell me through prayer, and what You tell me and show me inside your Word. Cause me to receive the liberating truth of Your Word, and to renew my thinking - about myself and others, daily. Help me to meditate and focus on the positive things You say in Your Word, and on my many blessings from you; and forget and move on past all the negative aspects of my past, along with my faults. You died for my forgiveness of sins, and to give me newness of LIFE - I receive it, and embrace it by faith, right now. Thank you Lord! Amen
