The Unseen/Invisible/Eternal has the Power to TRUMP and TRANSFORM the Seen/Visible/Temporary‏ -HFJ33

This is a devo I saved in my drafts to remember to send out since it was one of the many confirmations of all the words we were getting simultaneously about God’s Word being Medicine. But I forgot to send it! However, it’s fitting that I found it today because of the confirmation in it of our current confession! So, I’m believing this is not late, but right on time!
Trust the Great Physician
by Gloria Copeland

My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them [the Words of God] not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart…. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. – Proverbs 4:20-21, 23

There is a medicine so powerful it can cure every sickness and disease known to man. It has no dangerous side effects. It is safe even in massive doses. And when taken daily according to directions, it can prevent illness altogether and keep you in vibrant health.

Does that sound too good to be true? It’s not. I can testify to you by the Word of God and by my own experience that such a supernatural medicine exists. Even more importantly, it is available to you every moment of every day.All you have to do is reach for your Bible, open it to Proverbs 4:20-24 and follow the instructions there. …those five verses contain the supernatural prescription to divine health. It’s a powerful prescription that will work for anyone who will put it to work.

…These five verses teach you to keep your attention trained on the Word of God—not on lingering symptoms. Be like Abraham who “considered not his own body” (Romans 4:19). Instead of focusing on your circumstances, focus on what God has said to you.

Develop an inner image of yourself with your healing fully manifest. … Since what you keep before your eyes and in your ears determines what you will believe in your heart and what you will act on, make the Word your No. 1 priority. Keep taking God’s medicine as directed and trust the Great Physician to do His wonderful healing work in you! Scripture Reading: Deuteronomy 7:8-15 (© 1999 Kenneth Copeland Ministries)

It was the part about “considering not your own body” that I first felt the Lord was showing me is a perfect confirmation of our confession this week! “The flesh counts for nothing (it doesn’t get a vote ~ it’s report is irrelevant),” so don’t even consider it! Then she goes on to emphasize not focusing on, or giving attention to, the report of the flesh (the lingering symptoms/circumstances), but to focus and give our attention to the Truth of God’s Word – since “It is God’s Spirit that gives LIFE and those Words He has spoken ARE SPIRIT and LIFE ~ LIFE to our WHOLE BODIES and HEALTH to ALL OUR FLESH (John 6:63 and Proverbs 4:20-21).”

Those symptoms/circumstances which contradict God’s Word/promises are attempting to exalt themselves above the knowledge of TRUTH that by Jesus’ wounds we are healed! (II Corinthians 10:3-5, Isaiah 53:4-5, Matthew 8:17) (This can also be applied to whatever Truth/promise from God your circumstances are trying to exalt themselves above.)

This leads us to another set of confessions from much later in the Healing Confessions book that God also gave us repeatedly in the past week, beginning the very night that a new attack/battle began:

“God’s Word is TRUE and every opposing or contradictory report, symptom, feeling, or pain is A LIE in comparison (Romans 3:4).
(They may be physical fact, but Truth TRUMPS fact. Facts are temporary and subject to change. Truth is eternal. Truth has the power to OVERCOME and CHANGE fact if we choose to stay in agreement with it instead of and in spite of the report of the temporary facts ~ the report of the flesh. We believe and speak in agreement with the Truth of God’s Word instead of in agreement with temporary symptoms, doctors’ reports, etc. We do not deny that sickness exists, but we deny it the right to exist IN US because of our covenant in Christ.)”

“I take authority over whatever contradicts and attempts to exalt itself over God’s Word and promises, and bring it into obedience to the Truth of what Jesus has done for me! (II Corinthians 10:3-5)”

“I hold unswervingly to Jesus’ words; therefore I know the Truth and the knowledge of that Truth sets me free. Where the Spirit of the Lord is (or where the Spirit is LORD), there is Freedom! Jesus has ALREADY set me free from the curse and every work of the enemy; I will not be burdened again by a yoke of slavery! (John 8:31-36, II Corinthians 3:17, Galatians 5:1)”

I knew that I knew God was emphasizing this to us this week in the face of circumstances that screamed the opposite report of His Word! (He also gave us another word that first night that was a precise confirmation of this theme!) Then He showed me how perfectly these confessions and passages go with our confession for this week!

“It is God’s Spirit that gives me LIFE. The flesh counts for NOTHING (it doesn’t get a vote ~ its report is irrelevant). The WORDS that God has spoken are SPIRIT and they are LIFE. (John 6:63)”

So, praying that we will all keep our eyes fixed on what is UNSEEN and INVISIBLE (this has been a recurring theme for us for more than a month) ~ the ETERNAL, UNCHANGING Truth of God’s Word/promises ~ rather than on what is SEEN and VISIBLE ~ the temporary symptoms or circumstances that are SUBJECT TO CHANGE (which are lies, illusions, shadows, smoke and mirrors, in comparison to the Truth of God’s Word  ~ they “count for nothing, are irrelevant, and don’t get a vote“).

May we remember that as we stay in agreement with the TRUTH it will TRUMP and TRANSFORM the facts ~ overthrowing them, casting them down from their lofty place, and bringing them into obedience to Christ! The Unseen/Invisible is SUPERIOR; it has authority over and creates the Seen/Visible. Our Heavenly Father wants us to imitate Him by calling (speaking/declaring) things that are not (yet in the visible/seen realm) as though they already are (in agreement with His Word/promises ~ because they ARE realities/truth in the spiritual realm)!

Blessings and Prayers! Laura


By faith we understand that the worlds were framed (fashioned, formed, created) by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. Hebrews 11:3


So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. II Corinthians 4:18


Looking away [from all that will distract] {including contradictory symptoms and circumstances}, we fix our eyes on Jesus, the Pioneer (Author, Leader) and Perfecter [Finisher, bringing it to maturity and completion] of faith. Hebrews 12:2  


(And since Jesus is the WORD, this also means we FIX OUR EYES ON THE WORD) –..give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh. Proverbs 4:20-22


…God, who quickens the dead, and calls those things which be not as though they were. Romans 4:17 (KJV)
God, who gives life to the dead and calls into being [by His word] that which does not exist. (NASB) (Lit calls the things which do not exist as existing)


For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up (exalts itself) against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. II Corinthians 10:3-5


Your word, Lord, is eternal;it stands firm (is forever settled) in the heavens. Psalm 119:89


Heaven and earth will perish and pass away, but My words will not perish or pass away. Mark 13:31
