Claiming Scripture over our lives is a formidable work! It is calling upon the supernatural power of God Himself to oversee our existence.
It gives us the ability to live with confidence and dominance. No matter what our situation, when God enters the mix, nothing can stop us. As we build an intimate relationship with our Lord, and live for Him, our vitality increases to amazing strengths. Inside we become armored with His Word, fully capable of resisting the enemy and causing it to flee.
No matter the graveness of the situation, when we claim the Word over it, and Almighty God’s power goes to work, it becomes a minor issue. God loves us and promises that He responds to His Word.
Jeremiah 1:12 (AMP)
Then said the Lord to me, You have seen well,
for I am alert and active,
watching over My word to perform it.
And we know it is truth~
Numbers 23:19 (NKJV)
“God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man,
that He should repent.
Has He said, and will He not do? Or has
He spoken, and will He not make it good?
John Osteen has some Scriptures He confesses over His life that I really like; here us one that particularly downloads strength into me:
“Hebrews 2:14 (MSG)
14-15 Since the children are made of flesh and blood,
it’s logical that the Savior took on flesh and blood
in order to rescue them by his death.
By embracing death, taking it into himself, he destroyed the Devil’s hold on death and freed all who cower through life, scared to death of death.
“I am He that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive forevermore, amen, and have the keys of hades and of death,” Revelation 1:18.
Father, who has the power of death? Your Word says Satan did have but now Your Son, Jesus, has the keys of death. He has the power of death. He took those keys by His mighty power when He descended into the lower parts of the earth. He is Lord over death! I cannot die until He personally turns the key! I boldly say that He will not turn the key until my days are fulfilled. I am Your child. I am joined with You in reaching this lost world with the Gospel. No demon nor devil can kill me.
No disease or sickness can kill me. I cannot die until my Savior, who loved me and redeemed me, says it is time. Therefore, I fear not! God is in charge. I will live on and on doing the work of Jesus, and when it is time, I will just fall asleep in Him. All sickness has left my body. You, O Lord, have taken sickness away from the midst of me.
So I claim it too: "I am determined that the Holy Spirit exerts His power through me as I do His work. I boldly say I am His and no sickness nor disease can exist in my body, for I am cleansed by the blood of Jesus and His work on the cross. I cannot die until Jesus says it’s time and my work on earth is done. Then I shall just fall asleep in His arms. All sickness has left my body, for my God has taken sickness away from the midst of me."
Confidence and ability pour into my being as I confess this truth over my life. God has enriched us with everything we need to do the work He has called us to do. There is never a reason to fear!
