STORED PREVIOUS PROBLEMS IN BRAIN

You will get exactly what you put your intention on.

It can be a better life (above) or it can be 'sickness', 'stress', and 'money problems'.

I have a body that sometimes wakes up in pain, but I put my attention on health and I 'walk' off my pain.  In a few steps all pain is gone.

The problem is that the brain has recorded my waking up in pain, and has previous records of waking up in pain from the brain's genetic recordings from past lifetimes.  Then the Brain puts the pain there from those recordings (mine and its past) when I wake up.  But I ignore it and insist on health. 

 

The good news? After a while, these recordings will fade into the background.  

The bad news? they are always ready to come back. (See 'MIND, BRAIN, BODY'). 

Mark 11:24; Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

We need to visualize ourselves where we want to be - in life or in health, as if it has already  happened.  If we believe we have received it, it will be ours.  

We live in the future. We are in the future.  We stay there.   We do not look at, or accept, what seems to be in front of us.  

Ephesians 3:20;  

Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly

beyond all that we ask or think, 

according to the power that works within us,

“who is able to do more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think”  Really!!! 
 

"According to the power" (of the Holy Spirit) "that works within us"

 

That means the Holy Spirit  (if we have chosen to have one) is supporting us, beyond all that we ask for or even can think of!  That we can be unbelievably powerful with faith and belief!

 

When I told others about this joyful news, they would look at me in preferred disbelief.

Hebrews 11:1; Now faith is confidence

in what we hope for and

assurance about what we do not see. 

* “faith is the confidence” = we have faith/expect and we are confident.
* “in what we hope for” = what we really want.
* “Assurance about what we do not see” = we are assured that it will happen even though we cannot see it - we 'know'.

We can see that the universe "was formed at God's command" and it was made out of nothing.  That was how the universe and everything in it was formed.  It makes sense that the things we want would be formed the same way: Out of nothing (from our imagination) through faith and belief.

Luke 11:9;  (Jesus speaking).

"So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you;

seek and you will find;

knock and the door will be opened to you."

 

"Seek and you will find"  =  Search and you will find what you are looking for.

“Ask and it will be given to you".  =  you will get what you ask for.

"Knock and the door will be opened to you."   (having found what you were looking for you will need to knock at that door to get involved with that opportunity)

It does not say knock a few times and give up.

It is FAITH and BELIEF that will make it happen.

Mark 9:23;

 “If you can?” said Jesus

“Everything is possible for one who believes.”

Matthew 21:21; So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. 22 And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”

Matthew 18:19; “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”

Everything - everything - "everything

 

is possible for one who believes"

2 Corinthians 5:7;  For we walk by faith, not by sight.

It  takes faith to ignore what the 'natural' (what we see and hear) is telling us

 

and live and walk in our vision.  

Matthew 9:20–22;

“Then a woman who had been bleeding for twelve years came up behind Jesus and touched the hem of his clothes. She thought, ‘If I only touch his robe I’ll be healed.’

When Jesus turned and saw her, He said, "Be encouraged, daughter. Your faith has healed you." And the woman was healed from that time on.

This woman had FAITH.  She could have been stoned to death for such a deed, because she had a problem of blood and was considered 'unclean'.  She had lived this way for 12 years!

Her unwavering and adamant faith took her to Jesus  and because of this, she was healed.

Hebrews 11:6;

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek Him.

Those who do not have faith cannot please God. 

and without faith God is not going to reward us,

because without true faith

we are not believing that He can reward us - "rewards those who earnestly seek Him."

ATTITUDE, TIME, AND TRUST

Proverbs 17:22; A joyful heart helps healing, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”

 

Luke 8:50; When Jesus heard this, he responded, "Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.”

I live my life joyfully, and why wouldn't I?  If I believe the future that I want is in the here and now (even if in the natural, it isn't), and if I know that it is the real reality (not what I see around me) and I live in that future, then why wouldn't I be full of joy?

If I have God by my side helping, what more powerful force could I have?

Sometimes it is a process, and it takes time.  Just trust in the Lord, and He will always provide.

What works for me is a vision board, which is a board, paper, or.....? with pictures of my desired future visions on it. I take a long time to choose exactly what I want or close to it.   

 

I tend to put mine where I see it often like on the fridge or even on my computer desktop, or cell phone.  If board or paper, I splurge on a full color print at an Office Depot type place.  Then, with the help of the vision board, that is where I live.  I live in that future and it is where I have to be if it is going to happen for me.

It can be quite difficult at first because the reality of the present keeps reasserting itself through people, brain messages and Satan, but I color everything with the future I am living in.  What really helps is living in God's presence and holding the hand of His Holy Spirit who readily agrees with me (as you can see from the Bible verses above).  God knows the universe He created, and He knows how He created and changed it, and how we can change our circumstances using His tools.

2 times a hurricane was going to hit us directly.  I did what I have told you above and in both occasions it went either around us or further North.

This is great except when it comes to the negative.  Just the lightest, even fleeting, negative thought goes into play with a resounding thud! I have found myself fall foul to this on several occasions.   Then I have to begin the up-hill climb to pure faith/belief all over again.  Not difficult, but irritating, at least for me.

ELIJAH

The prophet Elijah is one of the most interesting and colorful people in the Bible, and God used him during an important time in Israel’s history to oppose a wicked king and bring revival to the land. Elijah’s ministry marked the beginning of the end of Baal worship in Israel. Elijah’s life was filled with turmoil. At times he was bold and decisive, and at other times fearful and tentative. He alternately demonstrates victory and defeat, followed by recovery. Elijah knew both the power of God and the depths of depression.

Elijah, a prophet of God whose name means “my God is the Lord,” came from Tishbeh in Gilead, but nothing is known of his family or birth. We first meet Elijah in 
1 Kings 17:1 when he suddenly appears to challenge Ahab, an evil king who ruled the northern kingdom from 874 to 853 BC. Elijah prophesies a drought to come upon the whole land as consequence for Ahab’s evil (1 Kings 17:1–7). Warned by God, Elijah hides near the brook of Cherith where he is fed by ravens. As the drought and famine in the land deepen, Elijah meets with a widow in a neighboring country, and, through her obedience to Elijah’s request, God provides food enough for Elijah, the woman, and her son. Miraculously, the widow’s barrel of flour and jar of oil never run out (1 Kings 17:8–16).

 

The lesson for the believer is that, if we walk in fellowship with the Lord and obey Him, we will be open to His will. And when we are in God’s will, He fulfills all of our needs, and His mercy to us never runs short.  WE CAN DO ANYTHING IF IT ALIGHNS WITH GOD'S WILL.

We next see Elijah as the central character in a face-off with the prophets of the false god Baal on Mount Carmel (
1 Kings 18:17-40). The prophets of Baal call upon their god all day long to rain fire from heaven to no avail. Then Elijah builds an altar of stones, digs a ditch around it, puts the sacrifice on the top of wood and calls for water to be poured over his sacrifice three times. Elijah calls upon God, and God sends fire down from heaven, burns the sacrifice, the wood, and the stones and licks up the water in the ditch. God proved He was more powerful than false gods. It was then that Elijah and the people killed all of the false prophets of Baal, in compliance with God’s command in Deuteronomy 13:5.

After the great victory over the false prophets, rain once again fell on the land (1 Kings 18:41-46). However, in spite of victory, Elijah entered a period of wavering faith and depression (1 Kings 19:1-18). Ahab had told his wife, Jezebel, of God’s display of power. Rather than turn to God, Jezebel vowed to kill Elijah. Hearing of this, Elijah fled to the wilderness, where he prayed for God to take his life. But God refreshed Elijah with food, drink, and sleep instead. Then Elijah took a forty-day journey to Mount Horeb. There Elijah hid in a cave, still feeling sorry for himself and even confessing his belief that he alone was left of the prophets of God. It is then that the LORD instructed Elijah to stand on the mountain as the LORD passed by. There was a great wind, an earthquake, and then fire, but God was not in any of those. Then came a still, small voice in which Elijah heard God and understood Him. God gave Elijah instructions for what to do next, including anointing Elisha to take his place as prophet and assuring Elijah that there were still 7,000 in Israel who had not bowed to Baal. Elijah obeyed God’s commands. Elisha became Elijah’s assistant for some time, and the two continued to deal with Ahab and Jezebel, as well as Ahab’s son and successor, Ahaziah. Rather than die a natural death, Elijah was taken up to heaven in a whirlwind (2 Kings 2:1-11).

John the Baptist’s ministry was marked by “the spirit and power of Elijah” (Luke 1:17), fulfilling the prophecy of Malachi 4:5–6. James uses Elijah as an example of prayer in James 5:17–18. He says that Elijah "was a human being, even as we are," yet he prayed that it would not rain, and it did not. Then he prayed that it would rain, and it did. The power of prayer is in God, not in our own human nature.

As was true for Elijah, when we focus on the tumult of life in this world, we can get our eyes off of the LORD and become discouraged. God does display Himself in mighty works of power and judgment such as wind, fire, and earthquakes. But He also relates with us intimately and personally, such as in the quiet whisper. God meets our physical needs, encourages us to examine our own thoughts and behaviors, instructs us in how to proceed, and assures us that we are not alone. When we are attentive to God’s voice and walking in obedience to His Word, we can find encouragement, victory, and reward. Elijah struggled with typical human frailties, yet he was used mightily of God. It may not be through such obviously miraculous displays of might, but, if we are yielded to Him, God can use us powerfully for His kingdom purposes, too.

 

WARNING: SATAN; Satan likes to enter negatives into your mind, and into the body's thought systems. See 'YOU, YOUR BRAIN AND YOUR MINDespecially as we get closer to God.

The body gets alarmed and sends negative messages to your mind. The body will even manifest pains, which if we get concerned or worry about - we get.

Faith and belief require adamant and complete non-acceptance of negatives from whatever source.
