Book Mentioned: SWITCH ON YOUR BRAIN by Dr. Caroline Leaf
John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
Don’t place all your hope in the natural. This is where we can get stuck. We’re placing hope in the natural but instead we need to look at the natural as our help and then look at our hope as the supernatural. You can’t find true and total freedom in a therapist office. You have to have the blood of the cross and the power of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
It’s not overnight. It’s a journey. It’s a process. John 10:10 is not talking about life to the full having expensive cars and big houses, it’s talking about in the midst of your trauma and pain, is when you can have the “life to the full” that John 10:10 is talking about.
I am promised more, not more stuff, but more of God and when I get more God, then I get more of life. And I move from mild to WILD.
So much science out now about what praying to God does to the brain. Your brain will literally shift and morph as you commune with God.
Praise and thanksgiving will help you fight your battles. Praise God for who He is and what He’s done and it will push back the enemy.
“Pray the promise instead of praying the problem.” We pray about being so anxious or depressed but what we are doing is claiming depression, claiming anxiety and claiming worry while talking to God instead, why don’t we recite the promises God has over our life? As you pray this scripture you will begin to feel that stuff rise and leave you because you are claiming the promises of God.
We don't serve a vague God. But most people pray vague prayers. But we need to get specific instead of being afraid God won’t answer our specific prayers. Ask God a very specific question today: show up here God. If we can get more specific with God, He’s going to show up more specifically with your faith will be restored.
