Mark 11:23: 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.

This scripture has been stirring in my spirit for the last couple of weeks. During this stressful, confusing, and fearful time of my husband and I trying to find a home to rent or buy before December, I have been holding on and trusting GOD to move for me like never before. The enemy has been telling me that I am not going to find a place to live and that my family and I are just going to be homeless.

Well, I stand in the authority of my Savior, JESUS CHRIST and I speak to the mountain of fear, stress, confusion, closed doors, debt and self doubt and I command it to "be thou removed in the name of JESUS and cast into the sea".

I don't doubt today. I believe GOD. I believe my father. I believe my daddy. HE has not forgotten me. He has not forsaken me. He has not lied to me because my GOD is not a man that he shall lie. HE is the sovereign GOD. HE is the only GOD. HE knows my name. HE is my shelter. He is my refuge. HE is my strength. HE is the I AM. HE is my peace. HE is my comforter. HE is my life. HE is my breath. HE is. HE lives inside of me.

Today, I encourage myself in the LORD and I stand believing that "all things work together for good to them that love GOD, to them who are the called according to his purpose" Romans 8:28.

My heavenly, awesome Father. My GOD. My daddy. My friend. My all. I come to you, humbly, praising your precious, holy name. I come to you in spirit and in truth, giving Thanks. Daddy, I stand in your power and command stress, debt, confusion, fear, and self doubt to be removed and cast away into the sea. I do not doubt today, but I believe in your WORD, my father. Your WORD says that I shall have whatsoever I saith because I believe those things that I said shall come to pass. I thank you in advance now, My father, my friend for opening the door. I give praise, glory and honor to you MY GOD for being Awesome. Thank you JESUS!!!
In JESUS' name I pray,

Standing on GOD's WORD!

I will believe with you that what you are seeking will come to pass.
I hope you prayed this prayer out loud so the enemy could hear you. The founding pastor of our church told us one time that the enemy could put thoughts into you mind but he can't read your thoughts. God bless you as you continue to trust the Heavenly Father. Just tell satan he has to flea in the name of Jesus. You are covered by the blood of Jesus and he cannot cross that blood line.
Looking forward to a triumphant answer to your prayers,

Very nice post, and I will stand with you, that you will find the perfect place to live right where God wants you. I responded to your comment on my blog and then realized you may not come back to that one to look - so go back if you get a chance, but I'm glad I came here.
Be Blessed.

Amen! I am standing in agreement with you in prayer. Continue to hold on in faith, my sister and remember - He promised that if you delight yourself in Him that He will give you the desires of your heart. He has also promised you that He will supply ALL of your needs. I can't wait to hear the praise report!

Thank you all so much for standing in the gap and in agreement with me. It is so encouraging. I am near tears because you all are such caring, thoughtful, loving women of GOD. I cannot express how much I appreciate you all praying for me. Thank you again so much from the bottom of my heart. I give GOD the glory and praise now in advance. I said the prayer out loud, Alice and am standing on the promises of GOD!
Be blessed in the name of JESUS!
Love you all!

Thanks for your comments. You would not believe how much trouble I had getting that post on my blog. I had the pictures in a different place and when I opened it this morning they were gone. I knew that poem had to be for someone because, you know who kept getting in my way. But I didn't give up. I was writing someone else about the problem I was having and an idea came into my mind. I tried it and it worked.
Praise God it was done before you got there to confirm what the Lord was telling you.
God bless you my sistah,

It is so good to hear from you and to know you are all right. I look forward to your posts. God is a great God and He never fails us and He's never late, He's always right on time. That's in a song my husband use to sing when he was singing with a gospel quartet back in the 80's and it still holds true today.

Thanks for letting me know you are back.

May the New Year be filled with lots of joy, peace, happiness and prosperity.
From my heart to yours,
