As I was riding in the car with a 4 year, His little eyes spotted a Toys R Us.
“Toys R Us”, he screams.
I responded with, “I see it. But it’s closed.”
He says, “No, they will open on Sunday.”
I let him know that they aren’t open anymore and won’t open again. He would not accept what I was saying. Here I am, older and wiser trying to explain the cause of Toys R Us closing. He still didn’t want to hear me. How often do we cut God off. Here He is with His infinite power and great wisdom. But we act like we know it all. We insist on getting our point across and block out what God is saying. If we can just get in our heads that God’s ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts are higher too. He knows things that we don’t. Way more! So the next time God try’s to tell you something, listen. He’s speaking now. Are you listening?
Lord, I intercede even now for those who are imprisoned by mental bars. We know that the enemy’s job is to steal, kill, and destroy, but you have given us power over the enemy. You have given us the victory. You have given us the power to speak to our mountain and it has to move. Your word says that whatever we bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatever we loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. So we bind the hand of the enemy right now. No weapon formed against us shall prosper. For we are more than conquers. I bind mental illness, for you have given us a sound mind. The spirit of depression, because your joy is our strength. The feeling of not being enough, for You thought we were to die (on the cross) for. The feeling of loneliness, for You will never leave us nor forsake us. The feeling of not being loved, for you are love. When we found You, we found love. I loose your peace that will flow like a river. Joy that is our strength. Laughter that does good like medicine. Your love that will find us even in the darkest moment. You’re our strength when we are weak. Help us Lord to live our life according to Your Word so that we will walk in our purpose, for Your glory. Lord, I pray for their complete freedom. In Jesus name. Amen.
Fill your mouth with life, not death. Proverbs 18:21
