March On In Victory

How can we march on in victory? Jesus paid the price for us to live a victorious life through Him. He sent the Holy Spirit to help us always have the victory as we lean on, rely, depend on and trust in Him.  Our obedience to the truth that we know and hearing and obeying the Word of God will take us from victory to victory never defeat!  The resurrection power of Jesus Christ can reside in you as you sell out to him and surrender your life to Him.  He will take you step by step by step and each step will bring the victory over the world, the flesh and the devil who knows God has a great plan for your life. So trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding and receive the Victory today through  JESUS CHRIST AS YOU LIVE FOR HIM and allow the Holy Spirit to use you for His glory and comfort you as you draw others to Him BY LIVING THE LIFE BEFORE THEM!


Prayer to Break Free From Soul Ties

So pray this prayer to break soul ties that you don’t want off of your life:

“Dear Heavenly Father, I come before You in Jesus’ name. Thank You for buying me back from sin with the blood of Jesus. Jesus, thank You for dying on the cross for me–and thank You for being resurrected to life again so that I could live a victorious, powerful life in You. 

Dear Jesus, You paid the price with Your own blood for me to be free in every way. So, I receive Your gift of freedom. I choose to be completely free today.

Jesus, it is Your name and Your blood that make me free, and I thank You for that. You said that he/she whom the Son sets free shall be free indeed. So thank You that You’re doing the work as I agree with Your Word and obey You.

So Father God, in the name of Jesus, I plead the blood of Jesus over every unholy soul tie that is attached to or from me to any other person. And in the name of Jesus, with His blood, I (CLAP=>)BREAK every unholy soul tie right now.

In the name of Jesus, let every part of me that has been attached to someone else return to me, washed clean with the blood of Jesus, right now. And let every part of anyone else that has been attached to me be broken off and return to them, right now, in the name of Jesus.

Jesus, thank You for setting me free. I plead Your blood over my body, spirit, soul, mind, will, and emotions. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit afresh and anew. Please help me not to be conformed to this world, but to be transformed by the renewing of my mind in Your Word. Help me to wash my mind in Your Word every day, Jesus, and help me receive Your truth in all things.

Thank You, Father God. Thank You, Lord Jesus. Thank You, Holy Spirit. I love You, and I give You all the praise. In Jesus’  name, amen.”

If you prayed that prayer, then Jesus just broke the unholy soul ties off of your life.

You are very likely to feel different after praying that prayer. I often have had people tell me they can sense their freedom–that they suddenly feel disassociated (in a good way) from the people who have hurt them.

If you feel suddenly disassociated from those people, that is a VERY good thing! That is what freedom feels like, beloved. It feels whole and healthy just between you and Jesus–no other people needed. That is as it should be; you should feel whole and complete in Jesus alone. You want to be able to leave those people behind.

And you will find that, without the soul tie, you will be able to move on and stop thinking about that person.

However, here’s a spiritual warfare tip you’ll need to know:

If you prayed this prayer to break soul ties, be forewarned that the person with whom you had the ungodly soul tie will also feel the difference. They will suddenly sense that you are free from them; that you have broken free from their control or influence.

And they may not like it.

If the person abused or hurt you on purpose, they might not like it that you are suddenly free. It is very possible that they will (even out of nowhere) try to strike up a connection with you again.

True story. Beloved, BE WARNED that they may try to connect with you again. And if that happens, and they do try to connect with you again, be very careful. That connection wasn’t godly before, and it’s not going to be godly now. It is a trick of the enemy to try to pull you back into bondage.

So run.

In other words, if I were in your shoes, I would run not walk to say a polite “no thanks” to their efforts; and I would stay far, far away from them. Just a word to the wise on that.

Confession of Favor to Pray

Confession of Favor

In the Name of Jesus, I am the righteousness of God. Therefore, I am entitled to covenant kindness and covenant favor. The favor of God is among the righteous. The favor of God surrounds the righteous. Therefore, it surrounds me everywhere I go and in everything I do. I expect the favor of God to be in full manifestation in my life.

Never again will I be without the favor of God. It rests richly upon me. It profusely abounds in me. I am a part of the generation that is experiencing God’s favor immeasurably, limitlessly, and surpassingly. Therefore, favor produces supernatural increase, promotion, restoration, honor, increased assets, greater victories, recognition, prominence, preferential treatment, petitions granted, policies and rules changed, and battles won in which I do not have to fight.

The favor of God is on me and goes before me. Therefore, my life will never be the same. This is the time of God’s favor in my life. That is the favor of God. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

The World of Sin

Take dominion over sin. You do not have to be a slave to sin or yield to temptation. In Romans 6:14 Paul said, “FOR SIN SHALL NOT HAVE DOMINION OVER YOU: FOR YE ARE NOT UNDER THE LAW, BUT UNDER GRACE. ” Grace is the anointing given to us to overcome by the Holy Spirit. However, we can only overcome if we continually yield to the Holy Spirit and be obedient to the Holy Spirit’s promptings and the Word of God.  We are able to do this by humbling ourselves and calling on the Holy Spirit asking for his help to overcome and He will be there to help us.

Stand on the promise in Romans 6:14 and in the face of temptation, say out loud,“Sin shall not have dominion over me. I choose to dominate over this temptation. I have dominion over sin according to the Word of God.”

David prayed, “Order my steps in thy Word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me” (Psalm 119:133).  So lets make God’s Word a part of our very being. Walk according to His Word with the help of the Holy Spirit, then your steps will be ordered by the Lord, and you will be invested with power and authority to overcome.

My Challenge To You

If Jesus should come today, would you be ready? If you say the following prayer from the depths of your heart and surrender to Him as the Lord of your life, He will instantly forgive you of all your sins. As you trust Him, you will be filled with the hope and peace that only Jesus can offer.

If you are ready to make this commitment, please pray out loud the following:

Dear Lord Jesus, I am a sinner. I believe that you died and rose from the dead to save me from my sins. I want to be with you in heaven forever. Please forgive me of all the sins I have committed. I here and now open my heart to You. Please come into my heart. Be Lord of my life and my personal Savior. Baptize me in the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Now that you have given your life to Jesus Christ, it is important to pray and read the bible on a daily basis. It is also important to attend a Bible believing church regularly. Doing these things will help you to walk in continual fellowship with the Lord.

Out From Under the Shadows

Out From Under the Shadows

Romans 8:1 teaches, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”  That is telling us we don’t have to live in the shadows of our past. You don’t have to live under condemnation for things that you have done to others, nor do you have to live with hurtful memories from the past that others have brought upon you. It doesn’t matter how much you have suffered. Today is a new day! Jesus can make all things new – if you let Him.  Your life can be fresh and fulfilling, free from that which has been so damaging.

Excitement in the Now

I find life very exciting. I am more excited right now than I have ever been. More souls are coming to Christ than ever before. And I am so thrilled!

The future is before me. It’s before you. I want to love people and win souls until the day God takes me home to heaven. What somebody says or does doesn’t really matter. What matters is to be right with God, and to have a clean conscience before Him. The now is important.

David said it this way: “He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings (Psalm 40:2)” He goes on to say, And He has put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord (Psalm 40:3). “

Joseph could just as well have said those words. Peter or Paul could have as well. I can say them. Can you say them?

Upon his deliverance, David said that God put a new song in his mouth (vs. 3a). What was that new song? Even praise unto our God (vs. 3b). The result of that, David said, was that many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord (vs. 3c).

There would be confident reliance on the Lord as a result of the change in his life. He would experience great joy. the change in David would affect others positively by turning them to the Lord.

That can happen to you, Then, when you think of the past, you can joyfully say, “The Lord delivered me from hurtful memories and the pit of despair. He is steadying me now as I walk along.” And many will stand in awe and put their trust in Him. The promise is, Many blessings are given to those who trust the Lord…(vs 4, TLB). 

Romans 14:17 says, For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.” The kingdom of God is peace and joy. Go get it!

I Have Experienced the Healing of Memories-Dr. Lester Sumrall

I Have Experienced the Healing of Memories-Dr. Lester Sumrall

I know whereof I speak. When I was a young man, I had that dreadful sickness tuberculosis. One evening the doctor gave me only two hours to live.

Today I do not feel badly about that experience, terrible as it was. It was truly one of the greatest things that ever happened to me. It showed me the greatness of God, my healer, my deliverer, and taught me how to sympathize with people who are suffering and near death.

God is the Healer of Memories. He can put a new spirit within you. Great wrongs that have been done to you can be completely forgiven and forgotten. You can say, “Those experiences could have really harmed me emotionally, but God has turned what was meant for evil and used them for my good.”

There are people who die prematurely because they refuse to permit their memories to be healed. I beg you to allow God to heal your memories.

There have been many other hurtful experiences in my life which I could have allowed to fester and devastate me. But I Haven’t done that, and neither should you. Here’s how I have learned to experience the healing of memories.

  1. Come to the Lord Jesus and fully give your heart to Him.  Your spirit will come alive and will begin to direct your total being.  The Holy Spirit will indwell you and direct your emotions and He will give you power to control ungodly and hurtful desires and thoughts.  Accept Jesus into your heart today.

Psychologists can take your mind to pieces with their probing, but they cannot put it back together again. Only God can do that.  Only through the power of the Holy Spirit can healing from hurtful memories take place.

2.Forgive those who have wronged you. Forgiveness is a prerequisite for the healing of memories. Joseph forgave his brothers. He was sincere about it. I am sure tears ran down his face. He gave them everything they needed. That is the way his memories were healed.

It matters not who has hurt you or even how you have been hurt. There must be forgiveness. It may be a family member, a friend, a coworker, neighbors -someone who did you wrong. The wrongs were real, not imagined; or they could be over-exaggerated in your memory as a consequence of replaying those bad memories/bad emotional “tapes” in your head. Regardless -whether real or imagined – without forgiveness on your part, no lasting healing of memories will take place. 

Our ultimate example in granting forgiveness is Christ. Look at how Jesus forgave Peter who denied Him three times. More importantly, look at Jesus hanging on the cross asking the Father to forgive those who had put Him there. Jesus was a forgiver.

To be forgiven by God is to experience healing and deliverance. To forgive others frees us from hurtful memories that bind.  It will trigger a wonderful liberation from a defeated past and the beginning of a whole new outlook on life.  I have a friend who wrote this about forgiveness, and I like the way she expressed it:

“Calvary was an infinite event; it was the ground upon which Christ secured our forgiveness. It cost Jesus His life. It was an enormous price to pay. There is no way I can withhold forgiveness to another person when I look at the forgiveness of God in Christ. It didn’t feel good for Jesus to hang on that cross, but it feels good for me when I forgive. I feel right, cleansed, made new, recreated into a relationship that will honor Him. Joy is restored, and peace. “We have forgiveness through his blood” it’s the scarlet thread that runs through the Bible. If I am going to be fully identified with Christ, then it means that I will forever put into practice His forgiveness.  what a way to live! And what a way to die! It’s the only way. Believe me, believe Him, try it. It feels so good to forgive!”

3. One of the greatest ways to have your memories healed is to have love in your heart. Love and hate cannot co-exist in the human heart. Either you are a person filled with love, or you are a person torn by inner strife where hate-filled thoughts and ill will are battling with your deep-down desire to exhibit love’s virtues.

My thoughts are drawn to the Apostle Paul and the power of God’s love that invaded his life when he was on the way to Damascus to persecute the Christians there (see Acts 9). Once he was overcome by that love, he was a changed man. God’s love for us is the same as it was for Paul. He wants to infuse His love into us so that we too, will be changed. Then we will walk in Christ-like love toward others.

We are creatures cut out for love. God has made us that way. Jesus had much to say about love. In replying to the lawyer who asked Him which command in the Law of Moses is most important, Jesus replied, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. The second most important is similar: Love your neighbor as much as you love yourself. All the other commandments and all the demands of the prophets stem from these two laws and are fulfilled if you obey them. Keep only these and you will find that your are obeying all the others” (Matthew 22:36-40, TLB).


Joseph’s Example of Forgiveness

When I think of someone who exemplifies what I have been talking about here, I am reminded of Joseph. Genesis 37 provides the story of how, in a vision, Joseph saw himself elevated above his brothers, his father, and his mother. He was only seventeen and quite unwise. He told everybody in his family  about his dream. He would have been better off if he had kept quiet! That’s what got him in trouble. His brothers hated him. They called him a dreamer (vs. 19).

One day when Joseph brought their food to the field, his brothers plotted to do away with him. They stole his coat of many colors and put him into a deep empty well. They planned to leave him there to die.

Joseph could have hated his brothers from that moment on. Some of you hate members of your family for less of a reason than that!

A group of Ishmaelites came by and the brothers called out, “Say, would you like to buy a slave? We have a boy for sale. You’ll have to watch him though, he’s a dreamer. He doesn’t like to work; he just likes to dream. We’ll sell him to you for just twenty shekels of silver.”

What memories! When he got to Egypt, Joseph was sold again and began to work hard (see Genesis 39). Soon he was promoted to a higher position in the house of Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh. He was still just a young fellow, possibly around twenty years old, when his master’s wife saw him one day and thought to herself, “Hmmm, what a man!” The Bible says she cast longing eyes on Joseph, and she said, Lie with me (Genesis 39:7).

Joseph refused. How can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God? (Genesis 39:9). Joseph is an example of a Godly man.

The Bible says she taunted him day by day, but he wouldn’t give in. He tried to keep out of her way as much as possible. But one day, when no one was around, she came at him, grabbing him by the sleeve and again demanding that he sleep with her. Joseph slipped out of her grasp, but in the process his jacket was left behind in her hands. She screamed for help saying that Joseph had tried to rape her, and in a scuffle he left his coat behind. She held it before the men who came running to her assistance. It was incriminating evidence. Once again Joseph found himself betrayed, and he was put in prison. He was imprisoned wrongfully.

How many of us would still love the Lord after that? How many could forget such an experience? What would that do to your emotions and your memories? You talk about problems! Joseph had them.

While imprisoned, two of Joseph’s fellow-prisoners had dreams (see Genesis 40). Joseph, knowing that the interpretation of dreams belongs to God, asked the prisoners to relate the dreams to him, and then, trusting God, he was able to interpret them Joseph asked one of the prisoners (the chief butler) to remember him and his interpretation of the dream when he was released from the dungeon. But the Bible says that the chief butler forgot Joseph (vs. 23).

Joseph was again forgotten. What memories! They could have hurt him permanently.

Pharaoh himself had a dream two years later (see Genesis 41). He searched for someone who could interpret his troubling dream. It was then that the chief butler remembered Joseph. He told the king about the young Hebrew prisoner who had interpreted his dream. This secured for Joseph a release from prison. Joseph interpreted his dream,  that there would be a famine, and Pharaoh was so impressed that he elevated Joseph to the position of Prime Minister, which made him second only to Pharaoh. Joseph had not only interpreted the meaning of Pharaoh’s dream, but he also advised how to plan for the years of famine ahead. Pharaoh  recognized that the Spirit of God was in Joseph and said, Inasmuch as God has shown you all this, there is no one as discerning and wise as you…(Genesis 41:39). 

What kind of memories did Joseph carry with him? Would he sit there day after day thinking, “Wait until I find that woman…!  Would he think of his brothers who had caused him so much anguish? Would he ask for a royal Egyptian expedition force to march across the desert to find them so he could get his revenge? This is where “Forgiveness” comes in.

Then one day, while working in his office, ten of Joseph’s brothers arrived in Egypt. As they were ushered in, Joseph, seated in authority as governor of Egypt, greeted them. The famine was over all the face of the earth (Genesis 41:56). It was Joseph who opened all the storehouses and was in charge o saying who could buy the grain.

Did Joseph say within himself, “Here they come, my evil brothers. They took my coat of many colors away; they threw me into a well; and they sold me into slavery…now it’s my turn. I’ll get even!”

Among the sweetest verses in the Bible is the one when Joseph finally told his brothers who he was, and said, “Ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good…(Genesis 50:20).

God had healed Joseph’s memories. If you can see this and trust God, your memories, too, can forever be healed. Romans 8:28 says,  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Whatever has come to you, God allows it for your ultimate good, and for the good of others. Believing that will enable you to respond as Joseph did. (Dr. Lester Sumrall, “Healing of the Memories”, LeSEA Publishing, 2012).


The Prayer of Healing

It has been shown that if feelings of anger, rage, despair, yearning, and the many other emotions that crowd our thinking, and that have been pent up for a long time, can be fully expressed to someone who is trusted, one’s personality may gain a new state of balance and eventually function properly. God should be that “someone.”      The importance of being able to confide in a trusted pastor, counselor, friend, or loved one should not be minimized, but real healing of the memories comes as we entrust into God’s hands our entire personality, asking Him to do for us what we are not capable of doing for ourselves.  The Apostle Peter explains it like this: Trust yourself to the God who made you, for He will never fail you (1 Peter 4:19b, TLB).

David knew the pain of unhealed memories. To read the Psalms is to discover afresh just how much pain he experienced. David was totally ignored by his father when the prophet Samuel came to anoint one of Jesse’s sons to be the next king. Can you imagine how much that must have hurt the young lad? You can read all about it in 1 Samuel 16.

David says in Psalm 27:10, When my father and my mother forsake me, Then the Lord will take care of me (NKJV). David understood that it is God who strengthens the heart and mind and enables a person to go on in this business of surviving in the land of the living. I would have lost heart, David wrote, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living (Psalms 27:13, NKJV)

So it is that we must come to the heavenly Father for healing of memories, surrendering our defenses and excuses, being open to the work of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes it helps to write out a list of areas in your life that need to be cleansed and healed. Then as you surrender these things to God, relaxing in the Spirit, begin to thank Him for every new insight, however painful, that He reveals to you. Confess to God your feelings and emotions. Let Him do a cleansing work in you. Let Him comfort you. You will find that His love will take the place of the hurt and the hate you have been harboring.
