We’re so glad you’re joining us. The healing/faith journey series originally began as an email group in the fall of 2013. Jesse and I felt the Lord was leading us to go back through my book Healing Confessions based on God’s Word (2008) during that season, in order to take the time to meditate on them one by one. Though we still read from them each night together, we felt we needed to focus on each one for a significant period of time, asking the Lord to help them once again move from mental information to heart revelation that would produce the mountain-moving faith we needed in our situations. We asked those we thought might be interested to join us and the group continued to grow. We are now transferring this series here so people can continue to join us, yet still start from the beginning and work through at their own pace. In addition to the confession for each week, the series also includes confirmations the Lord brings us through various avenues and other recurring themes He emphasizes. Whether your need is for healing or encouragement to hold on to the promises of God in any area, we pray these messages inspire and strengthen you all the way through to the complete manifestation of your victory in Christ!
Here’s the first message and the follow up message sent later the same week:
Confession #1 / Scriptures to meditate on wk 1:
“God’s divine power has given me EVERYTHING I NEED for life (natural life) and for godliness (spiritual life) through my KNOWLEDGE OF HIM and HIS GREAT AND PRECIOUS PROMISES which He has given me by His glory and goodness. By believing and receiving His promises I participate in HIS DIVINE NATURE and escape the corruption that is in the world through sin.” (II Peter 1:3-4)
His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. II Peter 1:3-4 NIV
For His divine power has bestowed upon us all things that [are requisite and suited] to life and godliness, through the [full, personal] knowledge of Him Who called us by and to His own glory and excellence (virtue). By means of these He has bestowed on us His precious and exceedingly great promises, so that through them you may escape [by flight] from the moral decay (rottenness and corruption) that is in the world because of covetousness (lust and greed), and become sharers (partakers) of the divine nature. II Peter 1:3-4 AMP
