I've been working in Freedom Ministry for many years but had never thought of DELIVERANCE from FOOD ADDICTION until I met Doug Cromer. If you have ever struggled with your weight, or felt the Holy Spirit moving in your heart about fasting and prayer to overcome food addiction, THIS is your confirmation!
When you don't feel strong enough, smart enough, or capable of doing what's in front of you for lack of WHATEVER....ASK THIS QUESTION, "WHO IS YOUR DADDY?!?"
...because I promise you HE IS ENOUGH, He is ABLE, and there is truly NOTHING BEYOND HIS POWER, so proceed with THAT confidence.
Not with who you are, or what you can do of your own power, but of WHO'S you are...and what He's able and willing to do for those who love Him.
What ever the challenge, no matter how daunting, say these words out loud;
"MY FATHER NEVER FAILS!"
I have become accustom to living in the Lord's presence, and hearing from Him through out each and every day, however there are times when He goes silent.
At first I find it odd, then after a day or so I try to rationalize that maybe He has nothing to say today, but eventually I have to face the fact that there must be something that I'm doing or not doing that is causing an interference; a breakdown in our communication.
Scripture tells us that HEARING IS EASY, right?!? Then why are there times when I can't hear Him?
Over the years I've come to find myself getting excited by the fact that each challenge seems more impossible than the next, because I know it's put me in the unique position of having a front row seat, to see first hand what He's going to do. I know He's going to come through in VICTORY....however, the exact way it will be accomplished often remains a mystery, until the moment it unfolds.
So I just stand in AWE of my Father in Heaven, releasing and decreeing what I already know to be true!
I can't imaging living any other way...
To live a life in God's presence, and then through that relationship with Him, to begin receiving revelation... is a powerful thing. However to understand the power of coming into agreement with what He says about you, is an entirely different level of supernatural experience.
Reading this I'm time warped back 20 years, to hitting rock bottom, and accepting that there was a lot about me that needed correction. Unable to stand my own reflection, I submitted to the Lord, asking Him to be merciful and change everything about me.
On Thursday of last week I lost my job. I can't say that it didn't hurt my feelings because it did. However it didn't blindside me, because the Lord had been telling me it was going to happen for weeks.
At the same time all this is taking place, a work of righteousness is being developed and orchestrated in God's people. The loving, compassionate nature of Christ is being implanted and formed in our hearts. Hate in the world is making sinners more like satan. Love in the Christians is making us more like Jesus.
