What has God given you? By Nina Keegan


Never forget what you already have in your hand..?

2 Kings 4:1-10

Elisha and the Widow's Oil

Now the wife of one of the sons of the prophets cried to Elisha, “Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that your servant feared the Lordbut the creditor has come to take my two children to be his slaves.”And Elisha said to her, “What shall I do for you? Tell me; what have you in the house?” And she said, “Your servant has nothing in the house except a jar of oil.” Then he said, “Go outside, borrow vessels from all your neighbors, empty vessels and not too few.Then go in and shut the door behind yourself and your sons and pour into all these vessels. And when one is full, set it aside.” So she went from him and shut the door behind herself and her sons. And as she poured they brought the vessels to her. When the vessels were full, she said to her son, “Bring me another vessel.” And he said to her, “There is not another.” Then the oil stopped flowing.She came and told the man of God, and he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debts, and you and your sons can live on the rest.”

How many times do we discount what God has already given us..? In this story,  this woman was so fearful that her sons would be taken away to pay her debt… She was already in a panic as you can imagine because she just lost her husband and now was thinking she would also lose her sons.…
What’s interesting to me is that Elisha asked two questions in a row… He first asked, “what shall I do for you? “ Followed immediately by, “Tell me what you have in your house?”...He did not even give her a chance to answer the first question when he was on to the next… 
My guess is he did not want to hear her complain and proclaim her whole story about what she didn’t have  deepening her fears..but he immediately wanted to switch the focus on what she did have! 
The more we proclaim our deficits… The more real they become!
But what’s interesting to me, was her reply… She said she had nothing…” Nothing, except a small jar of oil… “ 
What was about to become a huge blessing in her life she considered to be nothing.

God can always work with what we already have when we are grateful for what we already have!
How many of us overlook the blessing that is right in our hands? God has not stopped being a God of miracles… Your miracle is in your hands… God can work with what you already have… he’s the one who gave you what you already have in the first place! He just want you to realize what you already have!
 It does not always have to be something materialistic..
How many of us discount our abilities..? We declare  the fact that we may not have the qualifications,, The education… The people skills, … Do you think God doesn’t know your resume? God wants us to be blessed, he wants us to see ourselves in the image of his Son! God can and will use what we already have and can bless us mightily when we stop declaring that we have nothing…
I was with A  friend the other day that I have not seen in q while… When I asked how she was doing, it seemed like a bevy of complaints rolled out about all of the things that were wrong in her life… I am not discounting the difficult  things that people go through… But I paused after a  while and I said ..”Is anything going right with you?” You are sitting here now..you are healthy… You woke up today…”I told her that everyone goes through difficulties in life but our attitude during these trials will determine how quickly we get through them…
 God’s mercies are new every day, but we have to turn around what we are declaring over our own lives. Before long we can become cynical and jaded if we are not careful with our words and declarations… From the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks! We never want to have a hardness of heart towards the Lord… Let’s declare our blessings, let’s not listen to the chatter of defeat… Let’s stop looking over the fence at what the neighbors have.
Sometimes  We gaze at other peoples lives through social media and think they have the perfect life… We may not get to see the fight that happened right before the beautiful family photo was taken…

Are we appropriating the blessings that God has given us… ? God has given us a plan of redemption and has made a way for us to spend eternity with him… He says he will supply all of our needs according to his glorious riches in heaven… We need to stop deeming ourselves unworthy… God loves you! God has a wonderful plan for your life… He ihas given you unique tools, qualifications and assets… Characteristics that no one else in the world has… You were designed for a unique purpose in Him ..Let’s think about what we  do have..?
Write down those things about yourself that are good… And trust me when you think about it there is a lot of good… I don’t mean for you to write things down in an arrogant way… Apart from God we can do nothing anyway but think about what is your gift..?
Are you a people person?… Do you love children?… Are you good with finances?… Are you a good motivator?… Are you a prayer warrior?… The list could go go on and on!!!  When you have your list, pray over it and ask God to give you wisdom over your next steps to take… Ask him to bless and multiply what you already have!!!
What do you have?… God wants to use you powerfully and mightily.. let’s stop declaring we have nothing… Let’s  Let God fill our vessels up with a powerful , overflowing oil which represents the Holy Spirit .. let it overflow until we no longer have the capacity to contain it… God is an abundant God and he will do exceedingly abundantly more than we could ever ask or think! Eph 3:20
Let’s Turn our thinking around, let’s let God multiply and bless what he has already given us!
Deliverance belongs to you,! I pray God delivers us from a limited mentality that keeps us from moving forward in our call to serve him.

I pray for For each and every one  of you right now to be highly favored, to walk transformed in the blessings and callings he has for you… May God highly favor you and order every step you take and give you wisdom and direction , peace and joy! … Declare this is the day that you take steps forward with what God has already given you… We all have our unique something… And God wants to use you!!

Love and blessings to you all!!!

When the Battle Chooses You.. by Nina Keegan

Over and over again in life we hear this statement… “Choose your battles”… “Pick your battles”…

I remember when I was raising my boys, so many times I would walk in their rooms and have to turn around and just close the door… Boys having messy rooms was not going to be a continuous battle I was going to fight… I felt I had to choose which battles  I was going to fight.. more important battles than a messy room I felt were, “Are they walking with the Lord?  How are their grades? Are they respecting authority?”
 Them staying away from drugs and alcohol was a battle during their young adult years that I was adamant about.

“Pick your battles! Pick your battles!” 

But....

“WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE BATTLE CHOOSES YOU..?”

Picking which battles to fight is not always our choice… Many times the Battle picks us..

Getting a late night call that your child has been in an accident, perhaps a bad doctors report, perhaps losing a job..perhaps losing a loved one..

These are battles we did not choose… But yet they are still ones we have to fight from time to time…

One thing I think is very important is to ALWAYS be prayed up, armor on and battle ready… Too often people only start praying in the midst of their trials… They turn to God in the trial in hopes of a way out…

The Bible tells us to put on the full armor of God so that we are always ready for whatever may come our way; so we are fully armed with the WORD of God deep in our hearts and souls… We can pray a hedge protection around us and our loved ones that is so huge that the enemy complains about it.

Job 1:10 ESV 

Have you not put a hedge around him and his house and all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land.

I wonder sometimes if we are always dressed in our full armor or if it’s just a costume..?


 This is something we must answer for ourselves… 

One thing is for certain is that our armor after living some life, can become quite beaten up, dented, and resemble a battle worn ensemble fit for any military General! 

This armor ultimately protects us… It bears the brunt of pain, quenches the fiery darts and protects us…

The word of God is our offensive weapon… It is the double edge sword… It is what leads us through all battles… It is what brings us out the other side stronger, more confident and victorious .. through these battles we will undoubtedly fully comprehend who our heavenly
Father is!

Any military has a preemptive plan… They study and know the enemy, they understand the plot and the schemes.., We too must be preemptive… It’s not an “if the battles and trials are coming, it’s when.” We must stay prayed up with our full armor on knowing that no matter what comes our way, our Almighty God will be there… We are never alone and He will never leave us or forsake us…

We do not have a choice sometimes in life, the world can happen to us… But the kingdom of heaven is always advancing and greater are we with who is in us than who is in the world!

No weapon formed against us can ever prosper and when we go through these tough times, I guarantee you that good will come from it… We will be stronger, more fortified, and strengthened in our knowledge and reliance on the Lord… We are resilient in Christ… We are victorious in Him… And the blood of Jesus is stronger than any battle… We are the majority in Christ!

When the enemy fell from heaven
He took 1/3 of the angels with him.. that means 2/3 of the angels are on our side!!!

As Jesus is so are we in the world...
   Jesus spoke saying, 
“Don’t you know that I could call on my Father in Heaven  and he would send legions of angels to rescue me right now”… 

We have that same power… But we need to know that we have that available to us!

We need to study the word of God for ourselves… It is our battle plan… We must be armed and ready… When the battle chooses you; you will have all you need in Christ to fight and win…

The joy of the Lord is our strength… He knows the great grievances and sufferings of his people… But he is our comforter, he is ever present help in times of trouble… And he loves us all with an everlasting love…!

If you are going through a battle that you did not choose… Please know that God chose you…
You were his before the  foundations of the earth began!

He’s got a plan, he’s got a strategy and it is always for good!

When you cannot possibly see an end to your suffering… Look at the eyes of Jesus and know that he has suffered the unthinkable because of his love for you… He knows where you are and he will love you through it all.. His perfect love cast out all fear and with one touch of his favor the tide of the battle will turn!!!

“The tide will turn in our favor!”

The phrase “The tide is turning” means:

1. reversal in a situation, 
2. new and opposite flow,
3. to assist in getting over or moving forward
4. to carry forward with new momentum
5. to surmount a difficulty, obstacle, etc..to survive.

Prophecy this word over yourself and those who need hope right now, “The tide is turning in “my” favor, the tide is turning in “YOUR” favor, the tide is turning in “our” favor!!!”

Stay strong and stay focused and keep your eyes on Jesus!
Never give up! God's on your side. He loves you, and He's helping you! You're going to make it! 

Put your hope in God and declare by faith, “The tide is turning in my favor!”

He is the author and the finisher of our faith!!

Zechariah 9:12 (AMP)
12 Return to the stronghold [of security and prosperity], You prisoners of hope;
Even today I am declaring that I will restore double your former prosperity to you..


Because we are IN Him, and He is IN us, we walk and live IN His victory!
 John 16:33 (AMP)


Hebrews 6:19 (AMP)
19 This hope [this confident assurance] we have as an anchor of the soul [it cannot slip and it cannot break down under whatever pressure bears upon it]—a safe and steadfast hope that enters within the veil [of the heavenly temple, that most Holy Place in which the very presence of God dwells],

Psalm 34:7 ESV 

The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them.

Psalm 91:1-16 ESV 

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day

The armor of God, found in Ephesians 6:10-18, is made up of the following six items:
the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of the gospel, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit.

IT’S TIME TO LEAD by Nina Keegan

  IT’S TIME TO LEAD!
God is calling all leaders ..,
Are you just accepting certain situations because you don’t feel like you have a choice in the matter?

 Are most people actually just living their lives, existing, but not leading their lives because they don’t believe they have an option?

Nehemiah 2:17-18 New International Version (NIV)

17 Then I said to them, “You see the trouble we are in: Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, and we will no longer be in disgrace. 18 I also told them about the gracious hand of my God on me and what the king had said to me.
They replied, “Let us start rebuilding.” So they began this good work.

Nehemiah certainly had a decision to make when he was faced with the choice of accepting the situation at hand or changing it.. he made the decision to LEAD!!It is a choice… Leadership is always a decision to bring about change and to make a difference. Leadership is about making disciplined choices, choices that many times have a strong natural enemy of passivity. The enemy loves to freeze us in our decisions… Indecisiveness can paralyze us.. we become so afraid of making the wrong choice and the wrong decision that we do nothing…
GOD IS CALLING US TO GO... TO LEAD!!
Many people don’t want to “get involved”… Many people don’t want to put in the hard work they just want things to be status quo… But everything worth achieving is always uphill!

Walking downhill is the easy part it always takes less effort… We never want to be one of those people that just does enough to get by… If we want real change in our lives we have to put in the effort and it may be an uphill journey but hard work always pays off.

For Nehemiah, the wall and the work of God in Israel was worth a determined effort.. it was definitely going to be uphill.. but he was very determined to get up that hill and build that wall!!

No one else can build your wall… No one else can fulfill your destiny.. no one else was born with your purpose!

Let’s not be the one that sits in the boat all afraid… Let’s get out of that boat… Let’s let the Holy Spirit guide us into the yet unfinished and do those things that we know we are to do but they just seem to insurmountable to us…

 Remember if God put this purpose in your, life he will take you through it and by climbing that hill... We will become stronger and more resilient… We will have a sense of accomplishment and achievement and strength that will carry us through to victory.

I believe the Holy Spirit is calling all of us to lead… It’s time to make decisions that will make a difference… It’s time to do what we knew we were created to do!

GOD HAS NOT CHANGED HIS MIND ABOUT YOU... HIS DESTINY FOR YOU STILL SRAND!

We all could sit down right now and create a quite impressively long list of things that we need and want to change and we haven’t changed them because they’re all “uphill”. Through our time with God, let’s let him lead us and guide us and fuel us to go and make a difference and to be strengthened  for the changes we need to make in him!! God wants us to be the change… Not sit there and wish others would change things!!

Here is a quote that sums this all up by Theodore Roosevelt called “The man in the arena”

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
Theodore Roosevelt

  1. Proverbs 11:14 Where there is no guidance the people fall, But in abundance of counselors there is victory.
  2. Psalms 78:72 So he shepherded them according to the integrity of his heart, And guided them with his skillful hands.
  3. Proverbs 29:2 When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, But when a wicked man rules, people groan.
  4. Exodus 18:21 Furthermore, you shall select out of all the people able men who fear God, men of truth, those who hate dishonest gain; and you shall place these over them as leaders of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties and of tens.
  5. Luke 22:26 But it is not this way with you, but the one who is the greatest among you must become like the youngest, and the leader like the servant.

NOT EVERYTHING IS AN ATTACK FROM THE ENEMY BY Nina Keegan

Not everything is an attack of the enemy...

After working in ministry for many, many years, one of the things I hear people saying very, very often is, “Im being attacked..
“This is an attack of the enemy!”

 We have to stop giving the devil credit for everything !

  I even recently heard  a young woman  say that “I plugged my phone in all night long and I woke up and it was not charged… The devil just keeps messing with me!”
 That’s not the devil.. that’s a bad phone charger!

On this side of heaven it seems that we can make the enemy out to be a pretty big deal... and I am certainly not discounting his plots and plans… He does prowl around seeking whom he can destroy…we must guard our hearts, that is for certain!.. But... 

When we magnify our God and  fully comprehend that he is well able to brilliantly handle any and all darts the enemy launches our way, with ONE WORD OF GOD at  just the mentioning of the name of JESUS , the enemy has to flee!

 IT IS WRITTEN!

 It’s already finished… The enemy has already been defeated, so we must look at the enemy through this lens… through the lens of heaven… And what things actually look like from God’s viewpoint... What could the enemy possibly do to us..? 

WE MUST REMEMBER, the enemy is the father of lies!!! 

We have to stop believing these lies, he is not omniscient, he’s not omnipresent, he doesn’t see all and know all like our loving Father does… we have the Holy Spirit living in us ! HE IS EVER PRESENT  HELP IN TIMES OF TROUBLE! 
 The devil only knows what we say, he only knows what we declare, he only can mess with what comes out of our mouths and what we declare about ourselves and our situations… By speaking negatively and declaring these things over our own lives, we are essentially giving him a foothold… An opportunity… to take what we have said and run with it!

  God has  ALREADY equipped us with all that we need to stand strong against it all, and we have the power to resist him at the onset… Then, why do we even worry at all ? The enemy is vastly more afraid of you and the Word  of God that comes out of your mouth than you are of him ...

 We give him way too much focus and presence in our lives… But I believe when we are actually in Heaven with our loving Father and look back, we will say,” Is that all he is… That’s who we let  mess with our lives all the time?”

We will see that he is absolutely nothing… Just a squeaking, murmuring voice that we have the choice to believe or not!

Everything we need is already ours, bought and paid for by the blood of Jesus Christ… Your healing, provision, restoration, and salvation,  have already been nailed to the cross… Done! Bought and paid for!
Let’s spend more time believing what God has said and what Jesus has ALREADY done for us and all that that means for us instead of believing the enemies lies… Either way, you have to have faith in one direction or the other… Let’s choose faith over fear!
Fear is nothing more than false evidence appearing real!!!
Lies!

God is so so much bigger and he cares about the things that we care about. 

We have complete authority and we have complete peace that only comes from God… We are to walk in that peace knowing that  God will never leave us or for sake us… NEVER!! 

So in this world where apparently it seems that everyone gets a trophy when they have not always earned it… Let’s stop handing out  trophies to the devil and giving him credit for things he hasn’t
 done... !

Instead let’s glorify God for the things he has done!!!!
God’s love is perfect, powerful, sustaining, redeeming, vindicating, peaceful, and God loves you more than you could ever comprehend!! 

Exodus 23:22
If you listen carefully to all that he says I will be an enemy to your enemies oppose I will oppose those that oppose you

“Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” James 4:7

“If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments, and perform them … you shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely. I will give you peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none will make you afraid; I will rid the land of evil beasts, and the sword will not go through your land. You will chase your enemies, and they shall fall by the sword before you. Five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight; your enemies shall fall by the sword before you.” Leviticus 26:3

“For the Lord your God walks in the midst of your camp, to deliver you and give your enemies over to you; therefore your camp shall be holy, that He may see no unclean thing among you, and turn away from you.” Deuteronomy 23:14

“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Luke 10:19

“Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases.” Luke 9:1

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from me,” says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17

“Through You we will push down our enemies; through Your name we will trample those who rise up against us. For I will not trust in my bow, nor shall my sword save me. But You have saved us from our enemies, and have put to shame those who hated us. In God we boast all day long, and praise Your name forever.” Psalm 44:5

“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.” 2 Chronicles 16:9

“… but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.” Daniel 11:32

“This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of Hosts. Zechariah 4:6

BE ENCOURAGED.. by Nina Keegan

ENCOURAGE YOURSELF IN THE LORD!
It’s  time to get a new “self sermon” it’s time to preach to ourselves like David did…” oh my soul, why  are you downcast?”

If there’s one thing I know about David , it is that he would have the smallest of pity parties but then he would turn things around right away and encourage himself in the Lord… This is what the Bible means when it tells us to renew our mind and to resist the enemy at the onset.

Psalm 10:1

Why do You stand afar off, O LORD? Why do You hide Yourself in times of trouble?

“A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit.” (Proverbs 15:13)

What sermon are you preaching to yourself? This sermon will deem the course of your life!

As the mind thinks the man follows! It’s time we stop living according to our situations and start living by revelation…

 We must have a revelation of who is in the fire with us… You plus Jesus is the majority.. it’s time  l to start finishing the Devil‘s sermons with God sermons of grace… Grace is always greater than any failure, Grace is always greater than anything you need… Breakthrough, healing, restoration, provision? Let’s start preaching the revelation that Jesus already died for all that we will ever need…
And it is already ours because we are the righteousness of God in Christ!!!

The Bible tells us to let what we think on and what we say be pleasing and acceptable to the Lord… Can you imagine if God heard some of the sermons that we preach to ourselves? The sermons of not being good enough, it’s too late, we’ve done too much wrong, I will never amount to anything, nothing ever goes right for me, and the list goes on and on!!!

Many of us sound like a broken record… That is our continuous  loop and what we feed ourselves daily through our own negative self declarations!
It’s time to break that record and to sing a new song… It’s time to get a new sermon it’s time to encourage yourself and be the coach of your own soul!

 How would you handle someone else that spoke to you the way you speak to yourself? Sometimes we can be our own worst enemies and our  own bullies!

Let’s start changing our silent sermons, let’s focus on almighty God, let’s focus on what he has already done for us through the blood of his son Jesus.. let’s start our sermons with the SOURCE and not with self…

God is our source of all things… Begin to praise him and thank him .. a thankful heart is the key to overflowing joy, it’s time to start praying God‘s will be done today on earth as it is in heaven… If your situation doesn’t look like
Heaven,  then change what you are speaking over your life… God wants us to be healthy, happy and fruitful.. full of peace, and overflowing with joy.

Stop getting so complacent and so used to things being the way they are.. you are not stuck there!!

God has a better plan for your life and it starts right now!!!!!

But David encouraged himself in the Lord. I Samuel 30:6

For whatever was written in the past was written for our instruction, so that we may have hope through endurance and through the encouragement from the Scriptures. Romans 15:4 

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13
So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18




You Can Have What You Say.. by Nina Keegan

YOU CAN HAVE WHAT YOU SAY! 
Did you know that you can have what you say?

We all know the story of the woman with the issue of the blood… This infirmity crippled her life for many, many years but when she touched the garment of Jesus; she received exactly what she said.

For she said, “If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be made whole.” Mark 25:8


Mark 11:23-24
For verily I say into you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea, and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he said shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he says...
24) therefore I say unto you, what things so ever you desire when you pray, believe that you receive them and you shall have them.
“HE SHALL HAVE WHATSOEVER HE SAITH!”

I believe that this is true either way… We shall have what we say whether it’s good or whether it’s bad… We must speak life.

In Numbers 13 concerning the children of Israel, they sent 12 spies into Canaan.
Ten of the spies brought back an evil report from the promised land and two of them brought back a good report.

What is an evil report? It is a report steeped in doubt and fear, negativity and  lack.

What is a good report? It is a report filled with faith, confidence, hope and reassurance.

The 10 of them agreed that the land was definitely flowing with milk and honey and it was definitely a promise land and they even brought back with them giant clusters of grapes and pomegranates to help establish their report.
 “BUT”
Here comes the but, they also brought back a warning that there were giants in the land; that they felt too small and insignificant to be able to fight them… In their own site, they were as grasshoppers in comparison to the giants in the land....
God sent them there already knowing about the Giants..
God was not afraid of the Giants and God was not surprised by them… But God wanted them to look through their eyes of faith and look to the source… The one who brought them there would bring them through... the one who promised them would fulfill his promise… How many of us stop short of the promised land because of a “but”?

They had already talked themselves out of it by saying, “we cannot do it, we cannot take this land”… The problem is that all of Israel also excepted this report… How many of us believe the report of man instead of trusting that the reply of the tongue shall always come from the Lord and that he has the final say in all things… He’s the one who gives us the desires of our hearts… So when we trust him, he will make a way to see us through to victory. We have to stop walking in unbelief knowing that God will never leave us or for sake us...then, what do we have to lose?… We are never alone, He is always with us!

Doubt is just believing  in the wrong thing, it’s having faith in the wrong thing... it’s feeding your fear and not your faith. You always get and have in your life what you believe for and what you say!
If you say something repeatedly and for long enough.. those words will eventually register and become your anthem… They will end up controlling your life… 
A lie only becomes truth when you believe it long enough..

Those 10 spies got exactly what they declared... not one of them were able to enter the promised land and they remained in the wilderness until they died… What they said came to pass! Things were very different for Joshua and Caleb.

They said,” let us go up at once and possess it for we are well able to overcome it!” Num 13:30

Joshua said, “fear not because the Lord is with us…” Once again if the Lord will never leave us or for sake us...what should we ever fear?… We can put our GOD against any giant in the Land and watch the enemy get trampled!

Never once did Joshua and Caleb ever deny that there were giants in the land but they confessed, our God is well able to deliver them into our hands. Stop saying you can’t!  Stop declaring negativity and lack  over everything you need..

Remember you can have what you say..we must have a quick confession of faith and not doubt… It wasn’t the giants in the land of Canaan who defeated the 10 spies…
They were the ones that defeated themselves!
 It was the wrong thinking, wrong believing, and wrong speaking that defeated them!

If you’re feeling defeated right now, it’s not always the devil.. many times it is what you have declared, thought and believed about yourself and your situation… We need to speak  victory over our situations as Joshua and Caleb did and declare that our God is well able!

Stop preparing for failure
And get a vision of the Almighty God fighting your battles for you… Open your mouth and speak victory.. declare the outcome that you desire and that it is already finished by the power of the blood of Christ!

God already knows the end from the beginning.. he just wants you to agree with him and his word and that he is the God of all things possible and he never lets the righteous fall!… 

God bless you all!
