Possession Through Proclamation // Glimpses Link Up — 20 Comments

  1. Thank you, Barbie, for this encouragement to proclaim God’s Truth over our hearts and lives. It can be so hard sometimes, but God keeps giving us sufficient grace and His Truth to shut the mouth of that deceitful liar, Satan. Love and hugs to you!

  2. YES! I am working on claiming freedom over several things in my life right now too. I love how your church has a united focus. It is so easy for me to want to give up rather than releasing it to God and let Him help me with the hard work. Thank you for these words today.

    • It is definately a struggle, one I fight more often than I have to. Surrender would make it all the more easier for me. I’m still learning. Have a beautiful weekend Mary!

  3. Beautiful verses, Barbie! I’ve never heard of proclaiming scripture over ourselves (well, I’ve never heard it called that 😉 ), butI think it’s a beautiful idea. My identity comes from Jesus, and he promises in so many ways to be all that I need.

    • When I speak the scriptures over myself, I am proclaiming the Word of God over my mind and spirit. It’s something I’ve been out of practice in doing, but hope to make it a regular routine again. Thanks for stopping by Anita!

  4. Barbie,
    Reading your post was like a gentle affirmation of what Godo has been teaching me the past several months. I pray God continues to give you hope and grace to experience the freedom you have in Christ. It is a battle, at times, that is for sure…but we are overcomers in Christ (Romans 8:37)…I can so relate to your struggle…day by day, moment by moment, my friend xoxo

    • Thank you for your encouragement Dolly. I so want to be more involved with what you are doing, because I know your words will help to further my freedom walk. But I so lack the energy. Please know I pray for you and that your words will touch many and bring hope and healing. Blessings!

    • It’s so true that when we have a fresh, new perspective about things, and a positive one, that it can affect how things fall into place. Thanks Jodie!

  5. I’ve never thought of Psalm 126 as a warning against faithless speech, but I see the truth of it. We look at all that God has done in the past, and then trust Him for the future — even if it’s a future that we did not predict or ask for.

    • That’s so true. I’ve had many seasons in my life where I didn’t understand, where I still don’t. Choosing to trust is hard, something I am continually learning.

  6. Barbie,
    Oh the negative self talk and then the enemy is more than happy to join in and echo those sentiments. I love the words of a song, by Casting Crowns I believe….”I will choose to listen to and believe the word of TRUTH”. We can’t talk ourselves out of our negative thoughts, but when we hold them up against scripture, all of a sudden they lose their validity and then we can choose to listen to lies or listen to the word of TRUTH. Praying that for you…for all of us.

  7. I’ve never thought of Proverbs 18:21 as relating to the words we say to ourselves before but it is so important to speak positively over ourselves and to claim God’s truth even when we don’t really feel it. Thanks for this encouragement.
