Being Tenacious

June 25th, 2022

How tenacious are you?

The word tenacious means: not readily relinquishing a position, principle, or course of action; determined: tending to keep a firm hold of something; clinging or adhering closely.

Matthew wrote by The Holy Spirit in chapter 11:

12  From the moment John stepped onto the scene until now, the realm of Heaven’s Kingdom is bursting forth, and passionate people have taken hold of its power.  TPT

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Micah chapter 2:

13   “The breaker [the Messiah, who opens the way] shall go up before them [liberating them]. They will break out, pass through the gate and go out; So their King goes on before them, The LORD at their head.”  AMP

The term “the breaker” is not a passive term but denotes a passionate, even violent action or force as necessary.  We are called to be warriors which means we have to fight for what is rightfully ours.  Those who are passive will not be classified as overcomers.

Many believers have been passive and have chosen the doctor’s opinion rather than FATHER’S Truth.  Doctors practice but FATHER’S Word is perfect, complete, lacking nothing. 

I have been healed multiple times of life-threatening diseases by being tenacious concerning HIS Word.  Did I go to a doctor in those cases?  Yes, but I did not rely on the doctor for healing.  In both cases, the doctor thought I was going to die.  I began to immerse myself in healing Scriptures and my body responded.  My soul and my body aligned with my spirit.  It surprised the doctor and nurses when I recovered.  I only share this to testify of the healing power contained in GOD’S Word and it works but there are times you must be a tenacious as a bulldog!

Had I kept immersed in the healing Scriptures, I don’t believe it would have been necessary to go to the doctor.  My faith would have eliminated the need.  However, I did not continually renew my mind in that area thus I became “void” of the healing Scriptures in my soul.  FATHER disclosed that reality to me.  Our souls require renewing thus we must not allow ourselves to become dull in those areas.  Walking in Divine health is better than getting healed when the crises arrive. 

Don’t wait for a crisis to take heed of what FATHER shared with me.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 3:

4   God will always be proven faithful and true to His Word, while people are proven to be liars. This will fulfill what was written in the Scriptures:

Your Words will always be vindicated and You will rise victorious when You are being tried by your critics!

FATHER’S Word is the final Truth in all cases, without exception.  Healing is included in Truth.  It is up to us to be tenacious and hold on to HIS Word in the area of our need until the need is resolved.  Our soul must line up with our spirit in order for the body to respond.  That is where the battleground resides… our mind.  We must truly believe The Word over all that the world has deposited into our minds. 

If you keep depositing the world’s opinions, how can you expect your mind to align with The Word?  It is your choice.  Each of us is responsible for our own decisions.

We Are Responsible

June 24th, 2022

If you have no joy or peace in your life, then ask FATHER to fill you with HIS Fountain of hope.  The key to hope is the revelation of Agape Love.  To develop faith, you must first have hope.  The Word is the Source of Hope.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 15:

13   Now may God, the Inspiration and Fountain of hope, fill you to overflowing with uncontainable joy and perfect peace as you trust in HIM. And may the power of the Holy Spirit continually surround your life with His super-abundance until you radiate with hope!

Are you radiating with hope?  Are you surrounded with super-abundance?  A vast majority of believers would have to say “no” to both questions.  If it were not possible to answer “yes” to both, The Holy Spirit would not have led Paul to write this particular verse.

FATHER is not withholding anything from us who are pursuing a close and intimate relationship with HIM.  We do not have to pass some test in order to access HIS Inspiration and Fountain of hope.  HE is constant and unchanging in HIS Love for us thus the problem lies with us, not HIM.

We are responsible for our own level of revelation of Love, hope, and faith.  An excellent example of this Truth is recorded by The Holy Spirit in Mark chapter 5:

24 Jesus went with him, and the huge crowd followed, pressing in on Him from all sides. 25 Now, in the crowd that day was a woman who had suffered horribly from continual bleeding for twelve years. 26 She had endured a great deal under the care of various doctors, yet in spite of spending all she had on their treatments, she was not getting better, but worse.

Sound familiar?  Even the doctors back then were “practicing” even though they relieved her of all of her money.

27 When she heard about Jesus’ healing power, she pushed through the crowd and came up from behind Him and touched his prayer shawl. 28 For she kept saying to herself, “If only I could touch His clothes, I know I will be healed.”

The woman developed hope because she heard about Jesus’ healing power.  This hope brought faith when she took action simply to touch His clothes.  Did Jesus know her plan?

29 As soon as her hand touched Him, her bleeding immediately stopped! She knew it, for she could feel her body instantly being healed of her disease!

Her faith manifested healing, fully and completely!  Did Jesus lay hands on her?  No!  Did He speak some prayer over her and ask FATHER to heal her?  No!

30 Jesus knew at once that someone had touched Him, for He felt the power that always surged around Him had passed through Him for someone to be healed. He turned and spoke to the crowd, saying, “Who touched My clothes?”

This verse is vitally important to understand.  The woman’s faith healed her, not Jesus doing or saying something on her behalf.  She did not meet some criteria by Jesus in order to be healed.  Her faith made her whole.  When she heard The Word spoken, It produced hope and hope brought forth faith.

31 His disciples answered, “What do You mean, who touched You? Look at this huge crowd—they’re all pressing up against You.”

Jesus knew the healing power was accessed when it occurred but He did not know to whom.  Many people were touching Him but only one was touching Him by faith.

32 But Jesus’ eyes swept across the crowd, looking for the one who had touched Him for healing. 33 When the woman who experienced this miracle realized what had happened to her, she came before Him, trembling with fear, and threw herself down at His feet, saying, “I was the one who touched You.” And she told him her story of what had just happened. 34 Then Jesus said to her, “Daughter, because you dared to believe, your faith has healed you. Go with peace in your heart, and be free from your suffering!”

Each of us has the opportunity to access the super-abundance in the areas of our needs, whether it be healing, joy, peace, finances, or other immediate needs.  FATHER isn’t making the decision whether you receive from HIM, you are.  HE is at rest and is expecting you to receive The Word which first brings forth hope and then walk in faith until the manifestation occurs.  The Word has the power within Itself to cause Itself to come to pass.  We need to access what FATHER has already placed inside of us.

Get Understanding!

June 23rd, 2022

Your temptation is linked to what you think on.  Pursue the Truth and your understanding will increase and you will cease being tempted.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Philippians chapter 4:

6 Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell Him every detail of your life, 7 then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will make the answers known to you through Jesus Christ. 8 So keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God, praising him always.

If you fully focus on The Word rather than the world, temptation has no hook into you.  The world will tempt you with various aspects of unrighteous in order to get you to dwell on unrighteousness to the point of temptation.

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 11:

13These heroes all died still clinging to their faith, not even receiving all that had been promised them. But they saw beyond the horizon the fulfillment of their promises and gladly embraced it from afar. They all lived their lives on earth as those who belonged to another realm. 

14For clearly, those who live this way are longing for the appearing of a Heavenly city.  15And if their hearts were still remembering what they left behind, they would have found an opportunity to go back. 16But they couldn’t turn back for their hearts were fixed on what was far greater, that is, the Heavenly realm!  So because of this God is not ashamed in any way to be called their God, for He has prepared a Heavenly city for them.

We must not look back on the past but forge ahead toward the Heavenly city.  Jesus wiped away our past so let us not dredge it up anymore.  The adversary wants to remind us of our past failings but we must rebuke him and keep our minds focused on the promises in The Word.

Once again, meditate on The Word and renew your mind daily.

Jesus spoke in Mark chapter 4:

24 Then Jesus said to them, “Be diligent to understand the meaning behind everything you hear, for as you do, more understanding will be given to you. And according to the depth of your longing to understand, much more will be added to you. 25 For those who listen with open hearts will receive more revelation. But those who don’t listen with open hearts will lose what little they think they have!”

It is vitally important that we heed these Words Jesus spoke.  The key to understanding is being diligent to ponder and meditate on The Word you read and hear.  As I heed His instructions, I get greater clarity in all areas.  I am not interested in man’s opinions for men have an inherent tendency to speak what they believe even though it is not supported by the Truth.  I would simply like to hear the Truth and only Our Heavenly Father has all Truth.

Your Focus Is Your Choice

June 22nd, 2022

Whatever you focus you attention on, your heart becomes sensitive to that. Conversely, what you neglect, your heart becomes insensitive to that area.

Do you focus on the natural or supernatural?

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 3:

13 This is the time to encourage each other to never be stubborn or hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.

The word carnal means you are dominated by your five physical senses.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 8:

5 Those who are motivated by the flesh only pursue what benefits themselves. But those who live by the impulses of the Holy Spirit are motivated to pursue spiritual realities. 6 For the mind-set of the flesh (carnally minded) is death, but the mind-set controlled by the Spirit finds life and peace. 7 In fact, the mind-set focused on the flesh fights God’s plan and refuses to submit to his direction, because it cannot! 8 For no matter how hard they try, God finds no pleasure with those who are controlled by the flesh.

How do you become more spiritually sensitive or spiritually minded?

Glorify GOD in some manner every day.  We should value what FATHER, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit have done in our lives.

Be thankful.  My wife and I have a placard on our wall with the word “Grateful” for we are truly grateful to HIM for all that HE has done.

Protect your imagination.  Cast down any vain imagination that arises.  If an imagination which promotes unrighteousness in any fashion arises in your mind, speak against it and cast it out of your mind.  Do not dwell on it but dwell only on the positive.  Your imagination provides seed for hope so don’t allow the wrong seed to be planted in your heart.  The wrong seed will ultimately produce despair, anxiety, and guilt.

Meditate on The Word and renew your mind daily.

By doing these four things, you will become more sensitive to GOD and improve your hearing of what The Holy Spirit is directing.  If you focus on the problem rather that FATHER’S solution, your heart will become insensitive to the supernatural.  You will then begin to walk in fear, uncertainty, and doubt rather than in faith and peace.  This will separate you from the Holy Spirit flowing through you.

Jesus spoke in Mark chapter 4:

18 And the seed sown among thorns represents those who hear the Word, 19 but they allow the cares of this life and the seduction of wealth and the desires for other things to crowd out and choke the Word so that it produces nothing. 20 “But the seed sown on good soil represents those who open their hearts to receive the Word and their lives bear good fruit— some yield a harvest of thirty, sixty, even one hundred times more than was sown!”

We must not allow the world to crowd out and choke the Word out of our lives.  The responsibility lies squarely on our shoulders of what path we take which is determined by our daily priorities.

As for me and my family, we will serve THE LORD.

Be Sensitive to The Holy Spirit

June 21st, 2022

Become sensitive to hearing and responding to FATHER’S Voice through The Holy Spirit.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 4:

17 So with the Wisdom given to me from the Lord I say: You should not live like the unbelievers around you who walk in their empty delusions.

18 Their corrupted logic has been clouded because their hearts are so far from God—their blinded understanding and deep-seated moral darkness keeps them from the true knowledge of God.

19 Because of spiritual apathy, they surrender their lives to lewdness, impurity, and sexual obsession.

The end result of blindness is a reprobate mind with attributes of lewdness, impurity, and perverted sexual obsession of all types.  We now see this all around us and the media continues to promote acceptance of such activities, especially on television.  Even the commercials have become bold and brazen.

23 Now it’s time to be made new by every revelation that’s been given to you.

24 And to be transformed as you embrace the glorious Christ-within as your new life and live in union with Him! For God has re-created you all over again in His perfect righteousness, and you now belong to Him in the realm of true Holiness.

25 So discard every form of dishonesty and lying so that you will be known as one who always speaks the Truth, for we all belong to one another.

When I quote Scripture (in context), I most assuredly speak the Truth.  FATHER will judge homosexuality and in no way endorses improper sexual behavior.  People are kidding themselves if they think otherwise.  They are shallow fools.

Paul also wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 1:

21 Throughout human history the fingerprints of God were upon them, yet they refused to honor him as God or even be thankful for his kindness. Instead, they entertained corrupt and foolish thoughts about what God was like. This left them with nothing but misguided hearts, steeped in moral darkness. 22 Although claiming to be super-intelligent, they were in fact shallow fools.

We must not be guided in any way by those shallow fools who call themselves super-intelligent for they will lead the masses into the proverbial ditch.  Our direction must be determined by The Holy Spirit, not man.

Wisdom recorded in Proverbs chapter 4:

26 Ponder the path of your feet, And let all your ways be established.

27 Do not turn to the right or the left; Remove your foot from evil.

We must be vigilant in removing ourselves from evil and this is accomplished as we listen intently to The Holy Spirit.  It requires a sensitivity that increases as we ponder The Word in the quietness of our surroundings. The Holy Spirit inside of us is more than willing to guide us into all Truth if we so desire.

Paul further wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 3:

20  Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. HE will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! HE will outdo them all, for HIS miraculous power constantly energizes you.

Do you relate more to the natural or the supernatural?

Jesus spoke in Mark chapter 8:

14 Now, the disciples had forgotten to take bread with them, except for one loaf of flatbread.

15 And as they were sailing across the lake, Jesus repeatedly warned them, “Be on your guard against the yeast inside of the Pharisees and the yeast inside of Herod!” 16 But the disciples had no clue what Jesus was talking about, so they began to discuss it among themselves, saying, “Is he saying this because we forgot to bring bread?”

17 Knowing what they were thinking, Jesus said to them, “Why all this fussing over forgetting to bring bread? Do you still not see or understand what I say to you? Are your hearts still hard?

18 You have good eyes, yet you still don’t see, and you have good ears, yet you still don’t hear, neither do you remember. 19 When I multiplied the bread to feed more than five thousand people, how many baskets full of leftovers did you gather afterward?” “Twelve,” they replied. 20 “And when I multiplied food to feed over four thousand, how many large baskets full of leftovers did you gather afterwards?” “Seven,” they replied. 21 “Then how is it that you still don’t get it?”

Jesus was not pleased when the disciples were not grasping the higher spiritual realities.  If there was ever a time to walk and be guided by The Holy Spirit, it is now!  We need to remember all the blessings bestowed upon us in the past as we deal with the challenges in the near future.  Things may get ugly but those of us who are spiritually prepared will have sufficiency to make it through and minister to others.

An Urgent Dream Given to Chris Reed

June 20th, 2022

The following short video highlights what various “alternative” economists are warning to those who have ears to hear. The mainstream media is simply regurgitating the narrative given to them by those who seek ultimate power.

The Holy Spirit through the writings Servias has posted is meant to prepare you and me for the tumultuous times ahead. We are not to fear but instead by led by The Holy Spirit Who will navigate us through what lies ahead. It won’t be a lengthy time but we need to prepare ourselves for the duration of a transition.

FATHER is leading me to spend more time dwelling on The Word on a daily basis and be sensitive to what The Holy Spirit is directing me to do in preparation of a “perfect” storm. Will this storm happen? I can only share what I am led to do. We have recently purchased things (appliances, etc.) that are subject to failure rather than wait for them to fail. We have also increased our purchases for our cupboard.

We must remember that FATHER designated us to be here on earth for such a time as this and HE has empowered us to handle whatever lies ahead. We must tap into what is resident in our spirits!

Hearing And Responding

June 19th, 2022

Hope is our anchor.  It will stabilize us as we become sensitive to hearing and responding to FATHER’S Voice through The Holy Spirit.

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews 6:

19 We have this certain hope like a strong, unbreakable anchor holding our souls to God Himself. Our anchor of hope is fastened to the mercy seat which sits in the Heavenly realm beyond the Sacred threshold

We must place all our hope in Our Heavenly Father, His Word (Jesus), and The Holy Spirit.  This is where all Truth and success are found.  Why spend an inordinate amount of time listening to the opinions of men and women who are supposed experts in their field.  The Holy Spirit is the true Expert for each of us and we must become sensitive to hearing Him.

Wisdom wrote by The Holy Spirit in Proverbs chapter 4:

20 Listen carefully, my dear child, to everything that I teach you, and pay attention to all that I have to say.

21 Fill your thoughts with My Words until they penetrate deep into your spirit.

22 Then, as you unwrap My Words, they will impart true life and radiant health into the very core of your being.

23 So above all, guard the affections of your heart, for they affect all that you are. Pay attention to the welfare of your innermost being, for from there flows the wellspring of life.

If we are to become sensitive to hearing and listening, we must separate ourselves from the noise of the world.  The world wants to pressure us into staying busy and overworked whereas FATHER wants us to give HIM time away from our busy schedules.

Luke recorded by The Holy Spirit in chapter 6:

12 After this, Jesus went up into the high hills to spend the whole night in prayer to God.

13 At daybreak He called together all of His followers and selected twelve from among them, and He appointed them to be His apostles.

This was the pattern of Jesus in the Gospels.  Before He made important decisions and before great events in His Life, he sought the Father.  Once He saw what FATHER wanted, Jesus obeyed as the fully matured, perfect Son

The Beloved Disciple wrote by The Holy Spirit in John chapter 5:

19So Jesus said, “I speak to you timeless Truth. The Son is not able to do anything from Himself or through My own initiative. I only do the works that I see the Father doing, for the Son does the same works as His Father.

20 “Because the Father Loves His Son so much, He always reveals to Me everything that He is about to do. And you will all be amazed when He shows me even greater works than what you’ve seen so far!

21 For just like the Father has power to raise the dead, the Son will raise the dead and give life to whomever He wants.

Can you image yourself in the above passage as well?  A mature Son or Daughter will first personally image the greater works Jesus mentioned, then activate hope, resulting in faith.  As a result, manifestation will occur.

Love, Hope, And Faith

June 18th, 2022

Love precedes hope and hope precedes faith.

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in 1st Corinthians chapter 13:

12   For now we see but a faint reflection of riddles and mysteries as though reflected in a mirror, but one day we will see face-to-face. My understanding is incomplete now, but one day I will understand everything, just as everything about me has been fully understood.

13 Until then, there are three things that remain: faith, hope, and Love—yet Love surpasses them all. So above all else, let Love be the beautiful prize for which you run.

As we pursue the fullness of Love, we will develop hope through the promises in The Word.  Hope given to us in The Word is then the basis for bringing forth faith.

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews 11:

1   Now faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for. It is all the evidence required to prove what is still unseen.

2   This testimony of faith is what previous generations were commended for. 3 Faith empowers us to see that the universe was created and beautifully coordinated by the power of God’s Words! HE spoke and the invisible realm gave birth to all that is seen.

The faith movement downplayed hope and only focused on faith.  Yet hope is the basis of faith and the basis of hope is The Word of GOD.  Hope and imagination are effectively the same for unless we can personally imagine ourselves being able to receive the promises of health, healing, blessing, and prosperity, we will be unable to walk in faith for those realities.

Unworthiness keeps believers from activating hope in their lives.  Jesus’ Blood made a worthy and once we received salvation, behold all things are new.  Our spirits are perfect, wanting nothing.  We must then focus on renewing our minds.

Every aspect of unworthiness was dealt with when Jesus died for our sins.  If you are feeling unworthy, repent, accept the work of Jesus at the cross, and move on.  Begin renewing your mind to the promises given to us and appropriate the anointing deposited inside of you so that you can walk as an overcomer in all areas.

Wisdom recorded in Proverbs 13:

12  When hope’s dream seems to drag on and on, the delay can be depressing. But when at last your dream comes true, life’s sweetness (the tree of life) will satisfy your soul.

Adam and Eve were meant to eat of the tree of life in the Garden.  We too are to eat of the Tree of Life and walk in total abundance in all areas.

The Word of Love produces hope which produces faith which produces manifestation.  If you do not allow your imagination to image what The Word says about you, you stop the process.  Don’t allow any aspect of this Truth to be cut off.

Mature Sons and Daughters know who they are and they expect full and complete manifestation of the promises contained in The Word to manifest in their lives.

From Conception To Manifestation

June 17th, 2022

You give birth to miracles, you conceive them.

Miracles are based on reality, not fantasy.  Imagination is based on your ability to see something that is in your heart.  It may not have physically manifested.  In order to see it, you must conceive it.  Fantasying is not the intended use of our imagination so we should not allow ourselves to pursue fantasies.  

How does conception work?  There must be a seed.  The Word is the seed which must be planted in the heart so conception will occur.  Your heart is as a womb and you must protect that seed until it fully develops and physically manifests.  We must not abort the Seed by allowing the adversary to steal, kill, and destroy.  Our imagination will suffer.

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Genesis chapter 6:

5   The LORD observed the extent of human wickedness on the earth, and he saw that everything they thought or imagined was consistently and totally evil.

Men will be judged by not only their actions but their thoughts and imaginations as well.  Thankfully, Jesus cleansed you and me of our imaginations of the past.

We must resist vain imaginations!  Imaginations can result in a self-fulfilling prophecy.  If you imagine, think, and speak scarcity then you will move toward scarcity.  The reverse is true as well.

It is also true of the people who are close to you on a day to day basis.  If you are constantly surrounded by negative people, you will tend towards negativity.  You become like the company you keep.

Let us not limit FATHER by unwillingness to imagine or think less than what HE promised and committed HIMSELF to do on our behalf.

As Jesus expressed in Mark chapter 11:

22   Jesus replied, “Let the faith of God be in you! 23 Listen to the Truth I speak to you: If someone says to this mountain with great faith and having no doubt, ‘Mountain, be lifted up and thrown into the midst of the sea,’ and believes that what he says will happen, it will be done. 24 This is the reason I urge you to boldly believe for whatever you ask for in prayer—believe that you have received it and it will be yours.

It is also written by The Holy Spirit in Psalm 78:

41   Again and again they limited God, preventing HIM from blessing them. Continually they turned back from him and provoked the Holy One of Israel!

42 They forgot HIS great Love, how HE took them by HIS Hand, and with redemption’s kiss HE delivered them from their enemies.

43 They disregarded all the epic signs and marvels they saw when they escaped from Egypt’s bondage. They forgot the judgment of the plagues that set them free.

As you and I gain a greater revelation of FATHER’S unconditional Love, our imaginations will flourish and our limitations will cease.  Nothing we imagine in righteousness and contained in HIS Word, whether written or spoken, will be withheld from us and we will establish HIS Kingdom on this earth.

God often asks us to do impossible things. He’s not setting us up for failure; He’s laying the groundwork for a life of radical faith. When we are aware of our inability, it causes us to depend on Him. He is the God of more than enough. He is the One who works through us to do what we cannot do on our own.

Jesus loves to turn inadequacy into abundance. Our obedience and willingness pave the way for miracles. When we’re aware of our insufficiency but choose to partner with the all-sufficient One, our faith becomes a magnet for miracles. When the Lord asks us to do something impossible, it isn’t to deter us. It’s so that when He comes through, we’ll know exactly who deserves the glory.

What Do You Focus On?

June 16th, 2022

You must allow your imagination to line up with your prayers.  If you can’t see yourself healed, how do you expect to be healed?

Faith is the substance of things hoped for (imagined), the evidence of things not yet seen.  FATHER imagined the earth before HE formed it.  HE imaged it.

Ultimately, you value what you focus on and this includes what you imagine.

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Isaiah chapter 26:

3   Perfect, absolute peace surrounds those whose imaginations (H3336) are consumed with YOU; they confidently trust in YOU.

4  Yes, trust in the Lord Yahweh forever and ever! For Yah, the Lord God, is your Rock of Ages!

The Hebrew (H3336) word “yetser” is translated imagination.  It means: conception; to form, fashion, frame; to be predetermined, be pre-ordained.

We cannot imagine healing or prosperity without valuing what Jesus has done for all of us.  We must be able to conceive, imagine, and expect our healing to come forth specifically because of the stripes of Jesus.  He willingly accepted those stripes for us 2,000 years ago.  He willingly went to the cross for our consistent prosperity because His Blood eliminated the temporary nature of atonement once and for all.  Full restoration to FATHER was attained.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2nd Corinthians 8:

9 For you have experienced the extravagant grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that although He was infinitely rich, he impoverished Himself for our sake, so that by His poverty, we could become rich beyond measure.

Your life is directed by your tongue which expresses your dominant thoughts.  If you are focused and speak about scarcity, then you will ultimately experience scarcity.  The same is true if you consistently think on blessing, healing, and prosperity, and your words line up with your thoughts, you will experience them.  I am a living testimony of this Truth.  There is power in the tongue.

James wrote by The Holy Spirit in chapter 3:

2   We all fail in many areas, but especially with our words. Yet if we’re able to bridle the words we say we are powerful enough to control ourselves in every way, and that means our character is mature and fully developed.

3 Horses have bits and bridles in their mouths so that we can control and guide their large body. 4 And the same with mighty ships, though they are massive and driven by fierce winds, yet they are steered by a tiny rudder at the direction of the person at the helm. 5 And so the tongue is a small part of the body yet it carries great power! Just think of how a small flame can set a huge forest ablaze.

6 And the tongue is a fire! It can be compared to the sum total of wickedness and is the most dangerous part of our human body. It corrupts the entire body and is a hellish flame! It releases a fire that can burn throughout the course of human existence. 7 For every wild animal on earth including birds, creeping reptiles, and creatures of the sea and land have all been overpowered and tamed by humans, 8 but the tongue is not able to be tamed. It’s a fickle, unrestrained evil that spews out words full of toxic poison!

9 We use our tongue to praise God our Father and then turn around and curse a person who was made in HIS very image! 10 Out of the same mouth we pour out words of praise one minute and curses the next. My brothers and sister, this should never be!

11 Would you look for olives hanging on a fig tree or go to pick figs from a grapevine? Is it possible that fresh and bitter water can flow out of the same spring? So neither can a bitter spring produce fresh water.

What we say, think, and imagine impacts our walk.  This is all done in the soul realm and we must not allow the adversary to rule us in any aspect of our lives.  We alone establish and control our focus.

As Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Philippians chapter 4:

8   So keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God, praising Him always.
