Wall of Fire Prayer

During times of trial and suffering, it helps me to remember what God said about himself. Who did he say He would be when I am in the firey furnace going through stuff I have no idea how to figure out?

God promised to be a hedge of fire around us and the glory within us.

  • “For I,’ declares the Lord, ‘will be a wall of fire around her [protecting her from enemies], and I will be the glory in her midst.’” – Zechariah 2:5 AMP

When life is crazy we have a secret place to go to. We can go sit at Jesus feet and baske in His presence. There we do not need words. We can rest in His presence and listen. We can open our hearts and minds to receive what God wants to tell us. God promised to protect us and hedge us in with His presence.

  • “You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah”  – Psalm 32:7

When the enemy comes in like a flood the Lord will raise up a standard and deliver us. God is more than able to defeat any foe.

  • So shall they fear
    The name of the Lord from the west,
    And His glory from the rising of the sun;
    When the enemy comes in like a flood,
    The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.” – Isaiah 59:19 NKJV

God also promised us that he would use the fire of his presence to refine us. He will draw out all the impurities in our lives and wash us with His word. He is the potter, we are the clay. He will use the fire of His Holy Spirit and His Word to change us from the inside out.

  • “I will bring the one-third through the fire,
    Will refine them as silver is refined,
    And test them as gold is tested.
    They will call on My name,
    And I will answer them.
    I will say, ‘This is My people’;
    And each one will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’ ” – Zechariah 13:9 NKJV

God will be with us in the fire, just like He was with those 3 boys in the furnace.  We are not alone. God is with us. And good news, we will come out on the other side and not even smell like smoke!

  • And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste andspoke, saying to his counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?”  They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.” “Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.” – Daniel 3:23-25

Wall of Fire Prayer:

Dear Lord,

You know. You see. We put our trust in You Lord to deliver us from the enemy. Salvation is for us and our families Lord. Deliver us. You are not willing that any should perish. Be a wall of fire around us Lord and be the glory within us.

As we walk through this firey trial Lord, remind us that You are with us, just like you were with those 3 boys. Protect us Lord. Let us come out on the other side and not even smell like smoke.

Give us divine wisdom and protection Lord as we sit in your presence. Renew our strength, renew our minds, and make the  path clear to us. Go before us and prepare the way. Protect us from evil, for thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory forever and ever, amen!

Surviving Domestic Violence

I was looking at old pictures the other day. Came accross the one I took after I left my ex and he smashed my window in my van. It wasn’t bad enough that he smashed it out, but he took the extra effort to bring some of the broken glass and put it right in front of my glass sliding door. Just so I would know he was there.

It’s been 10 years. I am so grateful that me and my kids are free and safe. I don’t miss the yelling, screaming, fighting, and violence. I treasure my peace today.

Want to see what it was like? Visit my link below and see some of my journal entries. Man, that was a lifetime ago. Thank you Lord for deliverance!

The Lord Has Given Us Freedom — Time 2 shine!

Sad, Tired, Unmotivated, Overwhelmed. These are some of the things I felt while going through depression. Feeling like I was doing everything wrong and I couldn’t do anything right. Depression is probably the worst thing I have ever gone through. There were a lot of issues going on in my life and that was like an open door for the enemy to come in […]

Delivered From Our Enemies

Delivered. It is finished. We have been delivered to serve our God without fear. We are saved from all those who hate us. We serve the Most High God and His Word shall come to pass. Don’t hate the haters. Show them mercy. Pray for them, and watch and see what God will do!

Luke 1:67-75

Now his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying: “Blessed is the Lord God of Israel, For He has visited and redeemed His people, And has raised up a horn of salvation for us In the house of His servant David, As He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets, Who have been since the world began, That we should be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us, To perform the mercy promised to our fathers and to remember His holy covenant, The oath which He swore to our father Abraham: To grant us that we, Being delivered from the hand of our enemies, Might serve Him without fear, In holiness and righteousness before Him all the days of our life.

The Enemy is Under Our Feet

The Enemy is Under Our Feet

~Copyright 2016 Diana Rasmussen~

from dailylifeverse.com

 

Submit yourselves to God

Resist the Devil

and he’ll flee from you

Jesus is above all powers and principalities

The Name above all names

Exalted to the Highest Place

He carried our sins and sickness away

At the Cross of Calvary

Christ’s victory is our victory

We’re seated with Christ in Heavenly places

Far above all principalities and all powers of darkness

We are above and not beneath

The enemy is under our feet

 

 

God, Who is our peace, will soon crush Satan under your feet. May the loving-favor of our Lord Jesus be yours.
 -Romans 16:20 NLV

Feelings Shouldn’t Always Be Trusted

Why can’t you trust your feelings? We live in a culture of I want what I want when I want it. And if it feels good do it – right? Well, that may be exactly what is wrong.  Yes, feelings are important. But they change, moment by moment. And feelings may not be based on truth.

I have had a few new followers based on my posts on suicide and cutting. Yes, I have been delivered from these things. Thank you Jesus! But looking back, I realize how much I made my feelings my God. And if my thoughts were wrong – my feelings were wrong – and my actions were destructive.

According to Psychology Today:

For if our thoughts are erroneous, or based on false assumptions, the feelings tied to these thoughts are bound to be equally distorted—and hardly to be trusted.

 

The Fickleness of Feelings

  1. Change over time

  2. Are sometimes unreliable

  3. May be based on old hurts

  4. May betray you

  5. May be based on false information

Now I am not saying we should be robots. But perhaps we should TEST the voices that we hear in our head. They are not all good. They are not all from God. I Know that when I was plagued with destructive thoughts I would replay the bad messages again and again in my head.

“You are no good”

“You deserve to die”

“Your family would be better off without you”

Now today I know that none of these things are true. They were lies from the Enemy of my Soul – the Devil, the Deceiver, and the Father of Lies. Yet in the past when I dwelt on these thoughts I ended up hurting myself.

My thoughts were not based on Truth. I believed the lies. And I was the one who suffered for it.

 

Even Dr. Dobson says our feelings should not always be trusted. According to Dr. Dobson:

We are told in 2 Corinthians 11:14 that the devil comes to us as “an angel of light,” which means he counterfeits the work of the Holy Spirit. This is why he is described in profoundly evil terms in the Bible, leaving little room for doubt as to his motives or nature. His character is presented as wicked, malignant, subtle, deceitful, fierce and cruel. He is depicted as a wolf, roaring lion and a serpent. Among the titles ascribed to Satan are these: “Murderer,” “Dragon,” “Old Serpent,” “Wicked One,” “Liar,” “Prince of Devils,” and more than 20 other names which describe a malicious and incomparably evil nature.

These scriptural descriptions of Satan are written for a purpose: we should recognize that the “Father of Lies” has earned his reputation at the expense of those he has damned! And there is no doubt in my mind that he often uses destructive impressions to implement his evil purposes.

Let us test our thoughts today. Let us take every thought captive. God does not want any of us to perish. I am praying for all my friends here battling destructive thoughts. Get help today. I had to. Just because I had a feeling doesn’t mean that it was true. Once my thoughts changed, my feelings changed, and my actions changed.

Get Up Sisters and Brothers

“Get up”. That’s what I heard the Spirit say when I woke up. Get up out of the old, and walk in the newness of life. How about you? Are you ready for the new things that God is bringing into your life?

I also saw a snake on the ground. the Spirit asked me to stop on it with the Blood of Jesus. So I did, squashed his stupid little head! Yes, we have the power and authority to step on the snakes in our lives!

Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. – Luke 10:19 NKJV

One thing I have learned is that I had to empty my hands. It was hard to receive anything from the Lord when I kept hanging onto the old things – my hands and my heart were full. Release it, let it go, open up your hands and your heart today to receive from the Lord. He has such beautiful things to show us. And rise with me my friends, “GET UP!”

Get Up

~Copyright 2015 Diana Rasmussen~

Get up, up, up, up, up

Though I have fallen I  rise again

Get up, up, up, up, up

Through the Blood of Jesus

I step on the Enemy’s head!

I’m leaving the old with all sorrow’s untold

Walking in the Spirit reflecting God’s appearance

A son or a daughter I’ve been washed in the Water

Gonna get up, up, up, up, up!

Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” – Romans 6:4 NKJV

O Zion,You who bring good tidings, Get up into the high mountain;O Jerusalem,You who bring good tidings, Lift up your voice with strength, Lift it up, be not afraid;Say to the cities of Judah, “Behold your God!”

Behold, the Lord God shall come with a strong hand, And His arm shall rule for Him; Behold, His reward is with Him, And His work before Him.

He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, And carry them in His bosom,And gently lead those who are with young. – Isaiah 40:9-11

He Hears Your Tears

God knows. And He hears your tears as prayers. We started this Bible study at Church about Depression. I know it’s a good thing. But can I say I am coming unglued? After our second session I went up to the Guest that came to teach us and just hugged her. I said thank you. It was like a wall came down in me. I had to go downstairs in the bathroom to cry. All these emotions just flooding over me. Idk why. Guess it was time for them to come out. As tears. So much healing yet to be done.

Help us all Lord, open our hearts and our minds as Deep calls out to Deep and we let the Holy Spirit in the secret places in our hearts. The rooms that words don’t touch. The rooms of hurt, and darkness. Shine your light Lord, and bring Healing in Jesus Name.

Psalm 116:1-14
I love the Lord because he hears my voice and  my prayer for mercy. Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath! Death wrapped its ropes around me;the terrors of the grave overtook me. I saw only trouble and sorrow. Then I called on the name of the Lord:“Please, Lord, save me!” How kind the Lord is! How good he is! So merciful, this God of ours! The Lord protects those of childlike faith; I was facing death, and he saved me. Let my soul be at rest again, for the Lord has been good to me. He has saved me from death,my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling. And so I walk in the Lord’s presence as I live here on earth! I believed in you, so I said,“I am deeply troubled, Lord.” In my anxiety I cried out to you,“These people are all liars!” What can I offer the Lord for all he has done for me? I will lift up the cup of salvation and praise the Lord’s name for saving me. I will keep my promises to the Lord in the presence of all his people.

“Raindrops fall from the sky because the clouds can no longer hold them”

RAINDROPS ARE TEARS

“Raindrops fall from the sky because the clouds can no longer hold them”

There are tears
my heart can’t hold
falling down soaking the ground

Water from my soul
releasing pain
It’s my cry to begin again

From a secret place
I see your face
Your raindrops are tears
Sent from above
pouring out love
Your raindrops are tears

drench my hurt
heal my pain
You can call me by a new name

soak the trees
heal all things
that are precious to a King

From a secret place
I see your face
Your raindrops are tears
Sent from above
pouring out love
Your raindrops are tears

You wept when I wept
You cried when I cried

From a secret place
I see your face
Your raindrops are tears
Sent from above
pouring out love
Your raindrops are tears

Cleaning House By Breaking Generational Curses

I recently had a Pastor from another country ask me about breaking Generational Curses. There is varying teaching out there on this subject and I confess I am no expert. So I do what I always do – search it out.  I truly believe that God has given us the Holy Spirit to change the course of our families. Time and time again there was a King in the Old Testament that did not follow God, but in the next Generation his son turned back to the Lord. God is a Redeemer and I believe He can redeem our past, our present, and our future – and the same for our families. God isn’t on the same time table as we are. He is not limited. He can do all things.

  • What if God has called you to break and destroy all the generational curses that have plagued your family?

  • Would you do it?

  • Would you ask the Lord to forgive the sins of your fathers and the sins of your children?

  • Would you stand in the gap like Moses did for your family?

  • Would you stand in the gap for your Church family and all the followers of Christ?

I believe the only thing that can break a Generational Curse is applying the Blood of Jesus. It is His Blood that has the Power to break curses. He became the curse so that we would not have to bear it. I wrote about this in one of my Spring Training Posts – Breaking Generational Curses.

GOD’S WORD FOR YOU:

 Christ purchased our freedom [redeeming us] from the curse (doom) of the Law [and its condemnation] by [Himself] becoming a curse for us, for it is written [in the Scriptures], Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree (is crucified); To the end that through [their receiving] Christ Jesus, the blessing [promised] to Abraham might come upon the Gentiles, so that we through faith might [all] receive [the realization of] the promise of the [Holy] Spirit. (Galatians 3:13-14 AMP)

 The blood shall be for a token or sign to you upon [the doorposts of] the houses where you are, [that] when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and no plague shall be upon you to destroy you when I smite the land of Egypt. (Exodus 12:!3 AMP)

And they have overcome (conquered) him by means of the blood of the Lamb and by the utterance of their testimony, for they did not love and cling to life even when faced with death [holding their lives cheap till they had to die for their witnessing]. (Revelation 12:11 AMP)

Here are some great teachings on how to clean house and break those curses by Pastor Bev Tucker from Life Church in IL.
