Did you hear that Chuck Norris has been diagnosed with COVID-19? The virus is self-isolating! Ha!
There are few things that make me laugh like a Chuck Norris joke. And this particular one, really brightened my day. I don’t want to be like Bob, as sensible as he is. I want to be like Chuck.
This joke reminded me of one of God’s greatest generals, John G. Lake. When the ebola virus broke out in Africa, he showed no fear to this highly contagious disease. He didn’t run in the opposite direction, or kept the scientifically recommended distance. He ran towards the giant, laying bare hands on the sick. And they recovered.
This was a medical marvel! Science couldn’t explain this powerful demonstration of one man’s faith. But John G. Lake was happy to put his faith to the test. Under microscopic witness, they placed the deadly virus on the palm of his hand. The virus died.
This is how he explained it to the mesical profession: “I have the life of God in me, every virus that comes in contact with me dies.”
1 John 5:12 says, “he who has the Son has life…” We have life. The same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead is alive inside of us. What chance does a virus have to survive in the presence of the Creator of Heaven and Earth?
Bob may be sensible and Chuck Norris might have brute force, but you dear friend, have authority over all the power of the enemy. You have access to supernatural power.
When we live our lives within the shadow of God Most High, our secret hiding place, we will always be shielded from harm. How then could evil prevail against us or disease infect us?
Psalms 91:9-10 TPT
It’s time to believe who the Father says we are. It’s time to believe that all things are possible. It’s time to shine, with the Light and the Love you carry. It’s time to release the power of Faith inside of you.
What God did through John G. Lake, he can and will do through you, if you believe. God is no respecter of persons. He doesn’t only flow through special, anointed vessels, he flows through surrendered ones. Those who connect with him, receiving his Truth and Power. And those who are willing to release it to the rest of the world.
“But we are certainly not those who are held back by fear and perish; we are among those who have faith and experience true life!”
Hebrews 10:39 TPT
God is FOR you. His plans are to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a glorious future and a hope. Just think about this today. On purpose. We cannot plumb the depths of what is possible for us in Christ. Why settle for a limit?
Today, I pray that every child of God will have a fresh awakening of the Spirit of Life that are residing in them. May we unite in Faith as we release the power of the spoken Word accross our world. There is no power greater than the name of Jesus. And God has elevated his Word above his Name! (Psalm 138:2)
Let’s declare it!
Today, I hear the Father saying: “Faithful Child! My heart is stirred as you embrace who I have created you to be. Fearless and free. Strong, brave and overcoming. You are not conforming to the pattern of this world, but you are being transformed by the power of my Word. My Word, that cannot fail and cannot be shaken. Steadfast. Immovable. Always abounding. Always loved.” ❤
