When times are tough, we can take comfort in knowing that The LORD is our refuge and stronghold!
In this episode of Spirit Connection, I give you an update … and more key Bible verses to call upon The LORD’s goodness and faithfulness.
- That God has us covered no matter how things look.
- What we are going through and how you can help.
- The promises God gives about His ability to rescue us.
- How repenting and extending forgiveness can turn things around.
Let’s get started
I have been sharing over the last few weeks about the difficult times we’ve been going through. When we are going through difficult times, The LORD is our stronghold and help.
This is what The LORD has been speaking to me and how we have been praying.
The LORD is pouring out His great love and power for us right now!
The LORD is our refuge and stronghold
“The salvation of the righteous comes from The LORD; he is their stronghold in time of trouble. The LORD helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in him.” Psalm 37:39-40 NIV
When we are in need, or going through difficult times we can press into The LORD.
Pray, utilize The Bible, and ask for forgiveness and mercy. If you are not in a difficult time, you can do this for others.
The Bible is very powerful
“But the plans of The LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.” Psalm 33:11 NIV
The LORD is calling us to use The Bible, prayer and repentance. This will help us and get us through difficult times or even our daily lives.
I’ve been using Psalm 33 and other Bible verses to pray and proclaim The LORD’s great love and power over us.
We can take refuge in The LORD
“Keep me safe, my God, for in you I take refuge.” Psalm 16:1 NIV
Praying, repenting, and using Bible verses is very powerful. We can call out to The LORD for mercy, forgiveness, protection and safety.
The LORD is rescuing us
“He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me.” Psalm 18:17 NIV
This is such a powerful verse! The LORD is rescuing us, and He is our stronghold in times of trouble and distress.
More about our difficult time
I am asking you to consider praying for Linda and I, our families, our friends, and our ministry. We still have a very urgent financial need! Our ministry, InLight Connection, is in need of an urgent financial boost right away.
We are asking people to pray for us as we are going through this time.
Also, please pray and ask The LORD about giving to our ministry.
As well, Linda and I recently lost two close family members in the last few weeks. My sister and her husband went to Heaven. They both were very strong examples of Faith.
Linda and I have been in a time of transition with our ministry. I was able to use the entire month of April for prayer and to receive counsel. I know this prepared us to go through what we are going through now.
Thank you so much, LORD, for Your loving-kindness through good times or difficulties.
We ask You for mercy, safety, protection and greater power and declare, “peace be still.”
In the name of Jesus Christ, our LORD.
Repentance prayer to break through:
I’m going to walk you through a process that I use.
I find Bible verses, pray in the promises, agree with others, and do deep repentance of anything I might have “in common” that would stop The LORD from moving and blessing us.
It is important to add worship, fun and joy to this!
Think about it, pray about it and let’s agree together for your needs.
What do you specifically need?
Here’s how you can remove any strongholds, jam-ups, gridlocks and delays:
Repent, renounce, and break anything we have “in common” … including generational — soul ties, curses and things we may have done knowingly or unknowingly.
We also come into agreement in prayer to break out of things that are holding us back.
We forgive and break off the spirit of unforgiveness. (We don’t have to agree with the person or people who wanted us to forgive them.)
LORD, I ask forgiveness if I have done anything that has hurt anyone. If I’ve come into agreement with anything, knowingly or unknowingly, against this message — or anything that would stop You from breaking us out of the old season and into the new.
Also, I ask forgiveness for any misuse of anything You’ve given me, known or unknown.
LORD, we ask You to flush out the things that are unseen and send them to where the true Jesus sends them.
In the name of the true LORD Jesus. Amen
