KEY SCRIPTURE: Joh 11:39 KJV “Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days”.
The scripture has said God’s way is higher, and His thoughts are also higher than man’s. Every follower of the Lord must strive to put away natural reasoning and align himself with what God says. God can only work for us when we accept what He says. In our key scripture, the Lord asked that the stone placed at the mouth of the tomb be removed. Martha said her brother has been there four days and would be stinking. My question is, is the Lord not aware that after four days he should be rotten, and therefore stinking? Impossibilities lie in man’s world. There is no impossibility with God.
The scriptures show us the proper posture, to always adopt to overcome the atrocities of Satan in the lives of the people of God. Jas 4:7 KJV” Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” This is God’s eternal instruction to overcome every problem, no matter how detonated it may be. It says ,
1. Submit to God.
2. Resist the devil
3. The devil will leave you
Submitting to God means knowing what God has said, concerning that situation. and believing it, fully. For example, if the instruction of scripture says Jesus has carried away your sicknesses. Then irrespective of how you feel, thank Him for taking away that sickness, and from that moment, you no longer carry or have the disease.
The next instruction is to resist the devil. Tell Satan, the perpetrator of that evil condition to leave you, and that he has no place in you. After such resistance, maintain your stance. Be very authoritative in resisting the devil. Never use the word, Satan you MAY leave me. That statement gives Satan, or the devil a choice to either leave or stay.
The Lord says the evil one flees whenever this principle is carried out faithfully. Stand your ground in acknowledgment of what God has said, claiming that, Satan or the devil has left you. No matter how much Satan tries to make you feel he is there, insist that according to God he can’t be in your life any longer. This power no matter how stubborn he may be will surely leave you.
The problem of most children of God is that; so long as they feel negative symptoms, then the problem is there. This is the trap of the enemy. According to the scripture, by obeying the principle of James 4: 7, your condition is over. Do not give up.
In the name of the Lord Jesus, I submit to God and His word; I rebuke every evil condition, whether sickness or demonic activity of any kind to leave my life and never manifest any longer. I thank God that from this moment, I am totally free. Thank you, Jesus, for your liberation.
Mar 11:23 KJV “For verily I say unto 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 saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.”
Joh 14:13 KJV: And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”
