A CHANGE OF HEART

FROM "THE HEART OF THE MATTER" SERIES
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12)

GODS WORD WORKS

God’s Word is a law that works every time, all the time! 

Once a person becomes consumed with what God has said, their heart begins to be cleansed from the thoughts and images of bondage, and sickness. As a result they begin to think and see images of the healing, and freedom they have in Christ Jesus."

FAITH AND THE POWER OF GOD

FROM "THE HEART OF THE MATTER" SERIES
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. (Hebrews 11:6)

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT?

"But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man is blessed in his deed."  (James 1:25)

Many times in ministering to individuals who are seeking healing, I'll bring a mirror. This mirror is not a physical glass type mirror. It is a special, supernatural mirror designed to give them a true and accurate reflection of who they really are.

The reason I bring this mirror, is that on many occasions the person who is seeking healing has become so consumed with the condition that is plaguing them, that they are unable to see themselves any other way.

This mirror is called “THE PERFECT LAW OF LIBERTY”, which is the Word of God! God’s Word vividly paints a living picture of the freedom, healing, and provision that HE has given us.

There is a reason why the Word of God is called “The Perfect Law of Liberty”.

A “law”, is something that works all the time! God has already done a work in and through Jesus Christ!

John 1:1-14 declares that Jesus is the Word of God, and that all things are created by and through Him. Jesus went onto say that “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.” (Rev 22:13) So this reveals that God has done, and continues to do a great work through Jesus, Who is His Word.

God’s Word is the beginning and the end of your situation.

John 8:31-32 goes on to say "…, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

God’s Word is a law that works every time, all the time!

Once a person becomes consumed with what God has said, their heart begins to be cleansed from the thoughts and images of bondage, and sickness. As a result they begin to think and see images of the healing, and freedom they have in Christ Jesus.

The word “LOOK” in James 1:25 means; "to bend over and peer into, to get a better look." When you begin to peer into the Word of God, you'll begin to see yourself as a person who has been healed, delivered, and made FREE! You'll begin to see an image of health instead of sickness, victory instead of defeat, freedom instead of bondage, prosperity instead of poverty, strength instead of weakness.

You’ll begin to see how valuable you are. (John 3:16)

Colossians 1:13 says that God HAS delivered us from the power of darkness.

2 Peter 1:3 proclaims that God HAS given us ALL THINGS that pertain to life, and godliness.

Luke 10:19 Jesus Himself declares that He HAS given you & I authority over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt us.

Isaiah 53:3-5 & 1 Peter 2:24 tell us that we are healed, and that God HAS healed us.

Glory to God, are you beginning to see the reflection of HEALING, and VICTORY?

James 1:22-25 is telling us to look into this mirror. When we are influenced, impacted and occupied by what we see in the Word of God, that is when we will begin receiving what God has promised us.

Are you consumed with the symptoms’ of sickness today, or are you occupied with 1 Peter 2:24 which declares “BY HIS STRIPES YE WERE HEALED.”?

James 1:25 instructs us to look and to keep on looking into this mirror. "But whoso looketh. . . this man is blessed in his deed." When we begin looking into this mirror that is when we will begin experiencing the blessing and the reality of this truth in our lives.

Being occupied and influenced by our natural understanding is actually reversing the process which God requires for us to receive our freedom.

So many people are being controlled by how they feel. They have allowed their feelings to be the compass of their lives. They exalt these feelings above the most rational thinking, not to mention the Word of God.

By being occupied by these feelings, we literally establish and reinforce the condition the devil has us in. We become cemented in our bondage, limited, restrained and controlled by the deception of the devil.

If one stays in this position long enough, they literally walk into physical and spiritual death!

One of the greatest revelations one can get from the Word of God is that thoughts produce feelings. If you have the wrong feeling it is a sign that you have the wrong thought. If you have the right feeling, that’s an indication you have the right thought!

We should take a life lesson from Abraham our Father in the faith, and imitate him. He refused to consider his own body and he waxed strong in faith LOOKING unto the promises of God. (Romans 4:18-21)

We also can follow after Sarah, Abraham’s wife. We read in Hebrews 11:11 where Sarah "received physical power…because she considered [God], Who had given her the promise, to be reliable and trustworthy and true to His Word." (Amp)

Instead of considering her limitations, which were her age, or the deadness of her womb, Sarah considered the promise of God’s Word, formed faith in her heart, and received strength in her body to conceive a child.

In Numbers 21:8 we read an account where thousands of Israelites were dying, because of snakes that had bitten them. So Moses, under the direction of God, set up a brass serpent on a pole and set it before the people.

In verse 8 we read, "and it shall come to pass, that everyone that is bitten, when he LOOKETH upon it, shall live." Notice the condition was, "everyone who LOOKETH shall live." No one would receive their healing, except on the condition that they LOOK and continue looking at the brass serpent.

This brass serpent on a pole was a prophetic picture of what Jesus Christ would become in behalf of all mankind.

The serpent represented the curse of the law (SICKNESS). The pole represents the cross on which Jesus would be crucified.

In Galatians 3:13 we read where; "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law (sickness), being made a curse for us, for it is written, cursed is everyone who hangeth on a tree."

The word LOOKETH here in Numbers 21:8 infers a continual stare. This wasn’t a glance; they were to continually stare at it until they were healed.

Are you beginning to see it? Jesus became our PERFECT LAW OF LIBERTY!

The same is true today. The healing process is completed as we, not only begin to look into the Perfect Law of Liberty, but to keep our focus on JESUS, THE WORD, the Promise of God. We are to give Gods Word our full attention until we form a steadfast faith that receives His life giving power.

Begin looking at the right mirror. Change your focus from the deception of sickness, to the reality of healing. Walk in the freedom of divine health by looking into the Perfect Law Liberty today!

"HEART" WHERE YOUR THOUGHTS BEGIN

FROM "THE HEART OF THE MATTER"

TESTIMONY "I GAVE YOU WHAT YOU ASKED FOR"

TESTIMONY "I GAVE YOU WHAT YOU ASKED FOR"


By Diane Daily

For several months I had been experiencing a cough. The cough would come and go. At one point the cough seemed to stay longer then what was usual, and was accompanied with a sore throat and fever. After sometime a swelling on the right side of my neck appeared.

At one point the swelling became as large as a golf ball, but then shrunk back down. The soreness in my throat remained, along with a small lump that I could feel in my throat.

I began to hear "Go to the doctor." I thought to myself, "Could that be God saying this to me? " Then I thought, "God says in His Word that by His stripes I was healed, therefore I am healed. I don't need to go."

But the symptoms grew worse. I would hear "Go to the doctor". My friends and family would also encourage me to go to the doctor as well. I would always respond to them, I don't need to go to the doctor, because God says that by his stripes I am healed.

I took this stance for quite some time. Nothing got better, in fact it seemed to get worse. Then the cough got so bad that i could not sleep at night, and I was getting exhausted.

I decided to go to the doctor so I could at least get some cough syrup so I could sleep at night.

I was seen by one doctor, who after examining me, went and got another doctor to come in and check my neck on the right side. The two of them said it was very serious and that I needed to have more tests done.

I got a personal doctor to begin overseeing the tests, and he conducted another exam. He gave me allergy medicine, and cough syrup. He said that I eeded to have an ultra sound done on my neck. The appiontment was made within one week.

The ultra sound showed a very large mass on the right side of my thyroid. It was very suspiscious for malignancy. I was then advised to have a biobsy done. I asked for a referral to go to the Mayo Clinic. One was granted and an apointment was made within one week.

The day before my biopsy, I called the RSMI Prayer and Healing Center to come in for prayer. I said to God, "Father, I am asking for a miracle of healing, I need it now, and I can not wait. I am going in for prayer and I am going to receive what you have for me."

When I went in for prayer, Pastor Rory said to me, "When I lay hands on you, receive your healing." I said "Yes!" I knew that was God speaking to me.

When Pastor Rory laid hands on me and declared my healing, I fell down under the power of Gods Anointing. I remeber I began to laugh and laugh. My friend Kim who was there praying for me, had her hands on me begain laughing as well.

After a short time, I got up and it was done. I received my healing.

I went the next day to Mayo Clinic for the biopsy, and Praise God it was benign.

I was thanking God for His faithfulness to me and His faithfulness to His word. I then heard Him say to me, "I GAVE YOU WHAT YOU ASKED FOR." I began to cry out of gratitude and what I could not express with words unto such a loving God I believe my tears did.

Gods word is truth. God is forever faithful to His word. Jut believe God. He is who He says He is. He has done what He says He has done, and He will do what He says He will do.

Man can say one thing, but the truth is only found in God. His word is truth, for He is truth He can not lie. Just believe God He will bring His word to pass in you life. If you will choose to believe Him over man.

It gives Him great pleasure to reveal Himself to you.
