God Is Healing Our Land!
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
We have prayed that God would heal our land. We have confessed our sins and we have believed that God is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from all our unrighteousness. Now we must begin to say and affirm what we believe. This is a critical time for us who believe that we can have what we say. Jesus promised us we could. Let me say that again. These are the words of Jesus, Himself. Not an interpretation, not an opinion of some Bible teacher, nor the exegesis of some Bible scholar. These are Jesus’ own words. “…he will have whatever he says.”
So it’s up to us now to say what we believe and desire to see. The challenge is to resist the subtle seduction of the enemy to continually talk about how bad things are and rehearse again and again the latest news report of doom and gloom. That can be very difficult because our emotions want to take hold and we feel the need to express our righteous indignation against the negative conditions that are paraded before us day after day, and from well meaning folk who feel motivated to keep us informed of the condition of things.
But we can fight the good fight of faith against the enemy and still be informed and aware of his tactics. No, we don’t need to bury our heads in the sand and pretend everything is fine. That would be foolish and effectively give the victory to the adversary.
What we need to do is begin now to speak words of faith and declare what God is doing in every situation and not what the devil is trying to do to defeat us.
Here’s a for instance: The next time you hear about some advance of radical extremist taking territory, whether it’s physical, political, social or economic or any of such things, instead of saying how terrible it is. Stop! And begin to speak words of faith against them.
If the news says, “Radical jihadist have taken the city of…” then we say, “God is removing all the evil forces from that city and peace and righteousness is prevailing in that country. The WORD of God is being proclaimed there and the gospel of Jesus Christ is going forth unhindered and millions are hearing the WORD and believing and millions are being saved in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Now, that may seem a bit odd at first, but remember it is exactly what Jesus said we should do to mountains that stand in our way. We speak them into the sea.
We can do this. Will you join me and encourage others to do the same? The same applies to the state of things in our nation. We can speak righteousness over this nation and those who oppose it will become ineffective and powerless in their attempts to defeat us. God IS healing our land and we are speaking the truth, we are speaking what God is doing in love, and we have the victory over sin and evil through our Lord Jesus Christ.
This nation belongs to God and His people. We are seeing it restored to greatness and reaffirmed on the foundation of the WORD of God.
We are ONE NATION UNDER GOD!
