A Day in the Life

Woman in a Carboard Box

I have a question: Am I radical? meaning, do I live too far out of the box and would you be more comfortable if I were inside that box?

I was talking with someone yesterday about the weather and our authority over it. You see, we had planned a Christmas luncheon for the Healing Center I work in and by the reports of the weather men; we weren’t going to be able to have it. Those that were coming lived in different parts of the state and had many miles to travel to get here and with all the freezing rain and ice that they were predicting that would be impossible to do. (Not to mention, this is the south and we don’t drive on ice, we just don’t do it).

A few days before the event, we began making declarations to the weather systems, the powers and prince of the air and putting them on notice that we would in fact have our meeting and the weather would not manifest as the weathermen kept predicting. We would not dodge the bullet but instead, we were removing the bullet!  We then sent an email out to everyone asking for agreement with our declarations.

On Saturday, that’s exactly what happened; every person who was to come to this event came and there were NO problems with the roads. They were perfectly dry, and of course, we were not surprised.

So back to my conversation yesterday: This person was commenting about the email we sent out about coming into agreement over the weather. They personally wanted it to snow and become icy but they felt a conviction from God to ‘get over it’ and agree with us, which they did. Also, they wondered about us praying like that in the first place. I corrected her and said we weren’t “praying” at all or asking God for anything, but instead we were declaring and commanding as God had given us authority to do. We can’t keep asking God to do for us what He’s expecting us to do.

While she agreed with this on some level (her words), she thought it was a radical belief. As in who does this??  Don’t we just pray and ask God for protection and to keep us safe and that’s it?

I answered, ME, I do this and I’ve seen too much happen to stop declaring now! And no, we don’t just pray for God to do everything for us. We take dominion and declare the enemy’s hand is removed.

I had this conversation about 5 years ago but the question still remains; am I radical, do I live too far out of the box, or are there better questions?

Are you living in a box?

Are you experiencing the kingdom?

Are you walking out the things you talk about?

Me – I’m living on the edge, as far as I can go, today. Tomorrow, the edge will extend out even further.

To answer the original question, no, I’m not radical; this is normal everyday life for believers and especially me. This is what normal is in the Kingdom, but not normal by the worlds standards. I won’t live in that box! If that scares you, stick around because you ain’t seen nothing yet!

On Good Friday, we were yet again declaring storms to cease. Another day in the life. . . .. .

  1. Love it! And you are not alone. After 5 years of drought-like conditions in Dallas, Texas, our lakes were drying up and water supplies were at risk. I stood on the promise that I was meant to be blessed with a plentiful water supply – so commanded the lake to be full. Presto! It is full. But to your point, who can I tell!?

  2. Hi
    Are there any boundaries to the authority we have in Christ?
    Any recommendations on books, sermons etc to learn about this subject?
    Thx
    Lewis

    1. Lewis, the following are several scriptures on the subject of authority. I’ll check and see if I can find any specific teachings on this for you…….

      The Authority We Have

      The anointing and our authority are interdependent, we move in the anointing to colabor with God, but we also have authority we must exercise to take dominion, the most powerful thing we can ever do is to agree with God (and each other)

      1. Authority in delegated power

      Luke 10:19
      19 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.
      NKJV

      2. Jesus has authority over all things in heaven and earth

      Matthew 28:18
      18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
      NKJV

      3. The body of Christ has been given this authority

      Ephesians 1:20-23
      20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.
      22 And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church,23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.
      NKJV

      Ephesians 2:5-6
      5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
      NKJV

      4. Authority is exercised through submitting to the head (Jesus) through humility and brokenness.

      (refer back to outline on “what is sickness”)

      Authority scriptures:
      [soak in them,
      expand by revelation,
      share testimony]

      2 Corinthians 5:21
      21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
      NKJV

      1 John 4:4
      4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
      NKJV

      Luke 10:19
      19 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.
      NKJV

      John 14:12
      “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
      NKJV

      Philippians 4:19
      19 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
      NKJV

      Hebrews 4:16
      16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
      NKJV

      Romans 8:37
      37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
      NKJV

      Isaiah 54:17
      17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
      And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
      You shall condemn.
      This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD,
      And their righteousness is from Me,”
      Says the LORD.
      NKJV

      Ephesians 6:16
      16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery Darts of the wicked one.
      NKJV

      1 Corinthians 15:57
      57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

      Colossians 2:10
      10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
      NKJV

      Mark 11:23
      23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
      NKJV

      1 John 2:27
      27 But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.
      NKJV

      1. Thanks so much for taking the time to find all these. I will look them over and meditate on them.

        I am somewhat limited by my own lack of imagination. Would you mind posting articles in the future about this topic?

        Thanks again.

  3. Hi Ginny… Love your blog.
    When we have dangerous or threatening weather systems come through…I’m out on the porch with the shofar. We live within 40 acres…pretty secluded. We don’t have damage on our property. Our trees are wonderfully intact…our old rickety buildings…together.

    But, we leave the 40 acre wood…and within 500yds….limbs are down….branches all over. But…not us. I am in the process of extending the range of authority…protecting surrounding homes/properties. I am seeing change.

    My family doesn’t smirk any more. Sometimes, they come out to watch. Large balls of hail…diminish. Winds stop.

    I guess I’ve taken this for granted. I guess I didn’t really appreciate what I have been walking in for the past 20 years.

    I home-schooled our daughter. And it’s been a regular occurrence for her to find dead birds…pray over them….and see her throw them into the air. Some would fly. Well. Some not.

    I’m thinking I should try to blog. I’ve tried before…and It just hasn’t flowed. Maybe you could pray for me. I’ve had a writing anointing spoken over me…but…it’s just not moved easily.

    Sorry to ramble here. I love what I see you share on other FB pages ….etc.

    Thanks for being so transparent…

    JaneAnn.

    1. Hi JaneAnn, Thanks for stopping by and leaving a great comment. I love how we get to do these things and how afterwhile they don’t even seem so supernatural. No, they are just our new normal.
