Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace - February 8, 2013

For so long he had read and believed. He had accepted what was taught. He was faithful in his giving and service to the church.  And yet he had not experienced the abundance or perfect health promised.  All of his needs were not met!

All that was told to him, he did. And his pastor promised him that his prayers would be answered; God loved him and sent him His Son to die for him.

He knew it was true; not only was it told him, he had actually gone to the Bible and read it? He had confirmed it. But in personal experience – nothing!  He had no peace.

Still he would not give up; he could not give up; he had nothing else!  So once, more he would meditate on the Word and read it and study it. He would do all he saw. He would attack it anew, like he had never read it before.  With renewed fervor he would finally grasp that one kernel of truth that kept escaping him and he would have what he had sought for so long.

And so he began.  And as he was immerse in study he heard Him from within, "Speak now or forever hold your peace! And so, he began:

      "In the name of Jesus My God who has set me high above all the nations on earth; blessings shall come upon me and mine and and overtake us, because we obey the voice of the Lord my God; we are blessed in the city, and blessed in the country.   

      I am healed, from the top of my head to the tip of my toes. There is no infirmity in me! I am blessed by God! I am prosperous.

      All my needs are met. There is no lack in my home. I am able to give to worthy causes and participate in any ministry of my choosing. I have to give! God has blessed me!

      I am victorious in all things. I succeed in all I set out to do. God has empowered me to succeed in all things. I am the head and not the tail.     

      In every situation I have good success because I set the word of God before me. I meditate on it to ensure it, I keep it on my lips to speak and do it. I am blessed to succeed!

      My household is protected. My family is healthy with no infirmities. They family live in peace and prosperity. They also meditate on the word of God and receive His blessings. 

      And by the name of Jesus Christ we shall not turn aside from any that He has commanded. No government, no demon, no power on Earth can stop the plan of God in our lives as long we live according to God’s plan. And we shall never turn aside from His word in which He has commanded."   

And then he began a repeat of all he had said, in no particular order but as it came to him.   And he began to add specifics as he emboldened himself. And he danced, as David did. And he was happy, and successful and healed and victorious and prosperous, and he had peace.


Deuteronomy 28:1-14
1
If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations on earth . . . 14Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today, to the right or to the left, following other gods and serving them.

Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. 

1 Samuel 30:6-8  And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God. {7} And David said to Abiathar the priest, Ahimelech's son, I pray thee, bring me hither the ephod. And Abiathar brought thither the ephod to David. {8} And David inquired at the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.

Mark 11:23-24
23"I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. 24Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
