Don't deny the existence of a mountain in your life...deny its authority to stay and refuse to allow it to stop the plan of God in your life. Don't be affected by the world's message.

If you have a tumor as big as a basketball, it's hard to deny it. But you can deny its right to be in your body. Your spirit must take precedent over the situation.

That's what Jesus did with Jairus. Jesus made it clear that even if He was late getting to his home, the girl would be made whole. And to be "whole" she would have to be alive. She wouldn't stay dead, no matter what the message was.

Once a man came up to me who was crying and complaining about circumstances with his family that he experienced over 30 years ago. "I come from a dysfunctional family. I have so many problems, I don't know what to do."

I looked at him and said, "You are still talking about stuff that happened 30 years ago. If you are saved, then it is passed away. What are you trying to remind God for? Did He give you a new heart and a new soul? Then walk in your given power! The Bible says to forget those things which are behind and reach out to those things that are ahead."

It's ridiculous to keep dredging up the past just so you can weep over it again and again. You can't change what happened in your past. Forgive those who have wronged you and release it. The Word commands us to do so.

Who didn't come from a dysfunctional family? Unless your entire family was born again with the full knowledge of the power of God living inside them, you come from a dysfunctional family.

It's time to quit living in the past, because the past never sees the future. Make up your mind, if Jesus is real and His Word is truth, then it ought to work in your life.
