I remember my mom telling me how powerful our words were.  As a child, I think of the 'sticks and stones....' talk.  But as an adult, I have a whole new outlook on what 'powerful words' really are.  

We were given the authority over satan through the power in Jesus name.  Then why do we not use that authority in our daily lives? Do we just forget?  Is it fear?  What is it?

The Bible is very clear.

Mark 16:17 says, "And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues..."

We need to apply this to our everyday lives.  It is now flu season and daily I hear of families coming down with this illness.  Every family needs to wake up saying..."I rebuke illness to my family in the name of Jesus!"  Does this mean you will never be ill?  Of course not, but in order for Jesus to heal, you need faith.  Worry is not having faith.  Doubt is not having faith.

In the dictionary, the word faith means: complete trust or confidence in someone or something.

Sounds easy hey?  It is not.  100% complete faith is not easy to obtain.  We are human.  We doubt.  We question ourselves due to normal line of thinking.  Well, the worldly normal is NOT in Jesus Christ.  Jesus Christ is (and was here on earth) everything but normal!  He is a healer, a creator, a deliverer from sin.  We have been given this 'not so normal' love in our lives.  We have his authority of satan, we just need to apply it.

Have you ever heard of that saying, "When all else fails, have faith"?  I cannot stand this saying!  Why should we only have faith last to everything else????  Faith is what we are to use FIRST AND LAST!  If we apply faith first, we won't need anything else.

Faith is NOT about strength, it's about having the strength to let go and let God to do his work.

So use those powerful words, "IN JESUS NAME" to claim authority over the strongholds in your life.

I often ask myself, aloud, "Why did God give me three boys and not any girls?".  My husband and I have three boys.  Their ages are 10 (soon to be 11), 15 and 17 yrs of age.  Having two teens has its pros and cons let me tell you, but that is a whole new blog!  

We see friends and relatives that have girls and they are so adorable.  Not that my boys weren't at one time when they were young, but not adorable like little girls are.  My niece wears pinks and browns, pinks and purples, and yellow and light blues.  She wears dresses and leggings, skirts and little dress shoes with a matching purse.  How sweet is that!  (Definitely not a question.) When my husband and I discuss this issue, he always tell me, "God thought we could only raise boys so that is what he gave us."  I just laughed it off.  But when I truly think about why God gave us boys instead of girls, I do not question him.  My husband is right.  Not that we cannot raise girls; we just weren't meant to have them. Why?  There is a reason why I have my three boys and no girls. But the reason(s) doesn't matter.  God has his reason(s) and I may never know what they are.  We are content with our boys because we know that there is a reason why we do not have girls.  Our boys are ours.  They are special.  We love them.  That is all that matters.
