Hello! Today's devotion is "Bringing Life to Dead Places."
God does this and so do we. All of us have dead looking areas in our lives. Everyone has, at least, one area of life that looks really dead. It is screaming at us, "This situation really is impossible!" I have a phrase I like to use in response to this apparent hopelessness, "Let's just laugh at that."
Here is a truth to remember: Our hopelessness about a problem is a bigger problem than the problem. One of the greatest ways to break off hopelessness is to prophesy over ourselves. The Bible says, "Let the weak say 'I am strong.'"
Let's declare, "We are strong people going through a weak experience." Let us refuse to create our identity by our feelings or our circumstances.
A help to do this fast successfully – Remember, we are not to deny the facts of a situation in our negativity fast. Joel 3:10 does not say, "Let the weak say, 'I am not weak.'" If you are weak, go to the doctor or get prayer, but don't conclude you are a weak person because you are having battle with weakness.
Being on a negativity fast does not mean you are not being authentic, but it means you are learning to process your feelings in a healthier manner.
LET'S DECLARE THIS!
“The God of hope fills me with all joy and peace in believing so that I abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit!”
