15 Healing Confessions For Your Body! by Elaine Davenport (Wednesday, November 21, 2007)

These confessions are not just for your heart, but also for: your mind, your body and your soul!

1. I praise the Lord for His goodness. God sent His Word and healed me and delivered me from my destructions.
2. I honor the Lord with my substance.
3. I fear (revere) the Lord and depart from evil; this is health to my body and marrow to my bones.
4. I honor God with my body and my spirit; my body is a temple of God.
5. God set before me life and death, blessing and cursing…I choose life! I choose the Blessing.
6. God’s Word to me is full of life and power.
7. God is my healer.
8. God is my life giver.
9. God frees me from disease.
10. There is healing in God’s wings for me.
11. God forgives all my faults and heals me.
12. I read healing scriptures daily and my body conforms.
13. By the stripes of Jesus, I was already healed!
14. God wants me well. Healing is His will for me.
15. When I touch Jesus, I am made whole. I touch Jesus today with my faith and my reading the living Word of God. As I confess these confessions and read healing scriptures; I am touching Jesus!

It’s important to Commune with God by Elaine Davenport (Saturday, October 27, 2007)

You’ll see an example below about Jesus. As busy as he was; he was never too busy to commune with God. In other Words he had two way communication with God. A lot of people think that in prayer; you just tell God what you want
and say Amen and walk away. This is important to know in order to receive your healing. God seeks to have a personal relationship with you. You are that important to Him. He loves you.

One Question:

Can you maintain any relationship in love if you don’t master the art of communication? Just asking.

And He healed many who were ill with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He was not permitting the demons to speak, because they knew who He was.

In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there.

Mark 1: 34-35

Do you need a Spiritual Direct Deposit? by Elaine Davenport (Sunday, October 12, 2007)

A lot of people want to get healed, but they don’t know what steps to take in order to get what they need. Imagine that what you actually need is a withdrawal.

I checked one of my new bank accounts the other day, It had the same amount of money that was there on the 4th of July!

I hadn’t put anything in it. I wasn’t going to be able to make a withdrawal from that account.

You’ve got to have faith for your healing. How do you get faith if you don’t have it already?

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word

of God. Romans 10: 17

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

It means that you should attempt (and you can do this) to hear the Word of God so much that you hear it in your heart. Faith speaks. In order to be able to speak in faith you’ve got to have it in your heart. The Bible says:

A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. Luke 6: 45
Sometimes, we may need healing and we already have faith; yet it becomes a challenge because we don’t see results right away.

I try to:

1. Stay close to God in Prayer, Thanksgiving, Praise

2. I do not forsake the assembly of saints; I go to church to hear the Word as much as possible

3. I read my Bible and search for answers

4. I stand and wait for the answer. God always answers. Always…

If my concern is Healing, I read healing scriptures 2 to 5 times a day. If it is:

Faith, Prosperity, Wisdom, Righteousness, Peace, Strength… whatever the challenge, no matter how big or how small the answer is in the Word.

Start today by making a Direct Deposit into your Spiritual bank account; you do have one. Oh Yeah!

Don’t get offended! (Part Two) by Elaine Davenport (Wednesday, September 19, 2007)

* Please if you didn’t read Part One; please read it NOW. Thank you.

and Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. (Revelation 12:10-11 NKJV)

THERE WAS A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO SPENT YEARS THINKING THE ENEMY WAS THE WHITE MAN. THAT ISN’T TRUE. YOU CAN’T SEE THE ENEMY; UNLESS OF COURSE YOU LOOK REAL HARD!

We shall overcome is the basis of the Christian walk. That’s why other people think Christians are so arrogant. It’s because they don’t understand our goals, our preparation and our training. We already know who the enemy is. We already know we’ll be persecuted. We already know there will be much to overcome. We already know there will be a battle and we already know that we win! The sin of offense is simply another thing that we must overcome. That’s all it is.

HOW DO WE OVERCOME OFFENSE

The best way to overcome offense is to cast our cares on God. It’s a load and it calls for you to be self focused and secretly or openly angry as well as unforgiving. Offensive takes you out of the game and forces you to sit on the sidelines. It takes you out of the will of God. It blocks healing, Blessings, communication, progress, faith and productivity. It can be like a festering wound unattended.

 

SIDE BAR

They actually teach classes to people in how not to offend people. They call it Rational Emotive Language when one uses languages that causes people to react emotionally. They teach that it’s by not using the word “you” or speaking with a accusatory style, manner or using those types of words. I’ve tried it; it works. The truth of the matter is that people are fragile but we can put on the shield of faith and gain strength from wisdom and revelation in this area.

Another way to overcome offense is to immediately forgive. Being polite to someone or being nice to someone is NOT forgiving them. DON’T FOOL YOURSELF! I’ve done that too. That type of feel good zone is only part of your imagination. You are not in God’s perfect will when you “say” that you’ve forgiven someone and you’re harboring what they’ve done to you. We all have different situations so go to the Word of God about yours.

Other ways to overcome offense are: prayer, practicing humility, being sincerely loving, talking out the problem to the specific party that offended you, a gesture of kindness on your part and just getting in the bible and meditating. It’s a sore subject when it happens, so try to understand it now and put it in storage.

Satan will not get an advantage! By Elaine Davenport (Monday, August 6, 2007)

Teach me good judgement and knowledge for I have believed thy commandments. PSALM 119: 66

Dear Heavenly Father, I have believed your commandments and I have ingrained them. I pray today for good judgement in the tasks that I undertake and for the challenges that I face. I pray for a special level of knowledge. I specifically pray for the ability to speak at the proper exact time, for the ability to be quiet at the exact proper time. I know that You have anointed my head and that I am protected in the midst of all mine adversaries and I know that I walk in your shadow. I am asking you to help me to carefully select my words so that they will not be misinterpreted so that Satan would not have an advantage. I thank you that ministering angels go forth to prepare a way for me and that favor not only surrounds me but it also envelopes me. In Jesus Name I ask and pray. Amen.
