MESMERIZED BY THE WORD OF GOD, JAN 4, 2014

The truth is that when you focus on problems nothing changes for the better and the problems only get worse but when you focus on where you are going with the Word of God, there is a release of power, dunamis power, Kingdom power that eliminates all the problems you face in this world today. That is exactly the Kingdom at work. 

When Satan tries to get you to focus your attention on the problems, on the past, on the circumstances, on lack, on the disease, on symptoms, and on failures and if you yield and you keep your focus there then you’ve got no strength, no power, no ability to deal with it. 

The more you focus by faith on the Word the bigger the Word gets and then the problem begins to shrink in your eyes.  It begins to look to you just like it did with David when David looked at Goliath he wasn’t fazed with what he saw.  “Man, I am going to take your head off of your shoulders, you Philistine who has no covenant with Jehovah God.”  David only had a rock but then David had something more powerful then the rock, he had the Word of the Lord to go with it which sealed Goliath’s fate and David spoke it out.  Jehovah God put it in David’s mouth. BUT YOU HAVE GOT THE WORD OF GOD TOO!   The more you focus on the Word of the Lord the bigger it gets, and then the problem gets small in your eyes, your thoughts and with your declaration of the Lord this thing is completely destroyed. 

Jesus taught this focus when He taught you, “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.”  In Heaven there is no curse, no sickness, no lack, and so how do you get it out of Heaven and here?  This is what Jesus taught us, “I only say what I hear my Father say.  The words that I speak, they are not my own.”  So Jesus enquired of the Father.  He kept his eye, His focus on what is written and what He heard from the Father. So then He only says what He reads from the Word and what He hears from the Father.  And it’s the Father and not Jesus that did the works.

It is the Father and not you who does the works.  Just like Jesus you are not responsible for healing yourself or anybody else or make you or anyone else prosper.  It is though your responsible for inquiring of the Lord and focusing your attention on Him and the Word of God and opening your spiritual ears to hear of the Father and the Spirit what to say and do. Then you don’t add anything to what the Word and the Spirit tells you to say and then you don’t take anything from it.

Jesus cursed that fig tree and He did it with just nine words.  Just because Jesus used nine words doesn’t mean that we need to speak nine hundred words because we think we are weaker than He is.  The next thing that Jesus said after He cursed the fig tree was, “Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, ‘be thou removed”, using nine words.

So you say the Word of God and what you hear from the Spirit and the Father that dwells within you does the works and He does the works.  You say and He does is how the Kingdom works on your behalf.

You sow the Word in your heart and Satan’s job then is to come immediately to steal the Word, steal your focus on the Word working for you.  He knows if you say what the Word says and what you hear the Spirit telling you to speak, then the Father will do it and the devil is defeated in his effort to stop the Word from working for you.

Now if the devil can instead get you to focus on the problems at hand and say what it looks like, repeat over and over what the professionals said in their diagnosis, get your attention on the demonic chatter, chatter, chatter in your head and  get your focus, attention on his world system solutions, then he does his work.

The truth is the devil can’t do anything to you as long as you only keep your focus and your words and your actions in line with the Word of God and what the Spirit is saying to you! The devil can’t just come in and do his works just because he wants to because if that were true he would kill everybody on this earth, Christian and non-Christian.

Bad things happen to good people because good people making bad choices.  And they can continue to make bad choices and in the background they don’t even know what is happening in the background, the spiritual realm. 

There are principalities and powers that are at work all the time trying to destroy your life by your words. You continue on that path of speaking against the Spirit and the Word and pretty soon you will open your life up to rulers of the darkness of this world and bad things, destructive things will come because you used your mouth to speak it. The bad things are coming as a result of your words you spoke.  It is taking you to places you don’t want to go.

It is so vitally important to you that you stick with what the Spirit is speaking to you and what is written in the Word because you are in a time of a lot of information.  You are getting information every day of what is happening in this world, all the bad news and all the tragedies, disasters, new diseases, everything bad because they won’t broadcast or write anything else.  These are not good days for the person who is a worrier; because there is plenty of bad news to worry about.  People today are just wrapped up in this constant bombarding of information, bad information.  So it is vitally important that you as a believer in Christ and the Word that you are daily in God’s Word meditating it and speaking it over your life and that you are listening to what the Spirit is speaking to you.

Every day you can hear God’s voice.  I hear the voice of God all day long because I asked Him to speak to me all the time and He started talking not just during the day but sometimes a lot of time during the night.  If you are not hearing God speak to you every day, then let me be perfectly honest with you, you have your life, your mind, your heart too cluttered with the things of this world.  You must, it is imperative, it is vitally important to you that you keep God’s Word before your eyes just as the Word tells you.

Prov 4:18-22 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. KJV

It is vitally important to you that you quiet your soul and body down enough to where you can hear the Lord speaking to you. The Lord is not going to speak to you unless you do this.

2 Cor 10:4-5 For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, 5[Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One),  AMP

Reasonings, theories, “yah but”, anything that exalts itself against the Word of God and what the Spirit of God has spoken to us, that’s what we must get out of our thinking and replace with the Word of God.  You must be on the alert and you must recognize those contrary thoughts immediately and declare, “That is not my thought,” and then speak what is in line with the Spirit and the Word of God.  And then you will hear from the Lord. Remove this kind of thinking out of your thinking and images that this world information produces in you; fear, hopelessness, despair, no answers, worry, concern, etc..  Bring EVERY THOUGHT to the obedience of the Word and Christ Jesus’ redemptive work that frees you from this low life living and low life results.   

Again you must invite the Lord to speak to you or He will not interrupt this noisy, busy world around you, talking to you.

It is not supposed to be with you, “How is God going to do this?”  It is always, God said that He would do it and you keep yourself in faith in what is written and the spoken Word to you.  This Kingdom of God process works a hundred percent of the time.

You must never get distracted and you won’t be distracted if you enquire of the Lord about everything, every thought you have, what is His purpose for each day.  Inquire of the Lord,  “Father, I give my whole life and everything in it to you and I am enquiring of you about this day and I expect you to speak to me the Truth so that I overcome this world by faith in your Word which is Truth to me.”

From time to time I counsel people and there is one particular person I minister to on a regular basis and lately the Lord has been giving me just one word for each time we speak.  This week the word was “mesmerize”.  The meaning of that word is “to hold the attention of (someone) to the exclusion of all else or so as to transfix them”.  You know that’s what the negative information of this world, the devilish chatter, chatter, chatter in our heads try to do is mesmerize us, hold our attention to the exclusion of all else, all the Truth about us in the Word of God and what the Spirit of God has spoken to us.  So now is the time to take captive every negative, devil chatter, chatter, chatter, every worried thought that tries to mesmerize us, hold our attention to the exclusion of the Word of God and speak right out and say, “That’s not my thought, and then proceed to speak the Truth of the Word of God about us and what the Spirit has spoken to us. Let’s be mesmerized by the written and spoken Word of God and speak it only.

Faith Declaration:  I am mesmerized by the written and spoken Word of God.  The written and spoken Word of God has taken hold of my attention and focus so that all else of this low life of the flesh has no power in my thinking and in my speaking.  I have thought patterns that line up with the Word of God and I speak the Word only and the Father does the works.  I am what the Word of God says I am.  I can do what the Word of God says I can do.  I have what the Word of God says I can have. The fulness of The Blessing of Heaven (Ephesians 1:3), the fulness of The Blessing of Abraham and the fulness of The Blessing of Jesus is operating in my life. The Word of God rules in my thoughts, feelings, emotions, in my speech and in my life and the Father does the works.
