When my daughter Virginia (born at 24 weeks) was in NICU fighting for her life, I was speaking the Word over her constantly. ๐Ÿ“–

I had my list of scriptures and I would read and confess them over her every day, multiple times a day. ๐Ÿ“ƒ

Now, I am a faith person. I believe in the power of Godโ€™s Word. I was fully persuaded that the Word would do what God says it would do. ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

But despite all my believing and confessing, Virginia deteriorated – to the point where she was teetering on the edge of life and death. After being given this terrible news by the doctor, I remember thinking, WHY ISNโ€™T THIS WORKING? ๐Ÿ˜ญ

I was speaking the Word over her ALL THE TIME. Was the Word not working or was I missing it somewhere? ๐Ÿ˜ฐ

So (thank God!) I did the only thing I knew to do – I asked God to, โ€œHELP ME!!!!โ€๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

And He did! He showed me where I was missing it. He showed me that even though I was speaking the Word over Virginia I was also talking about the problem – about her condition in the natural. ๐Ÿ—ฃ

The Word-seed I was sowing over her was being choked by the fear, doubt and unbelief-seeds and those words were causing the Word to be unfruitful. (Mark 4:19, James 3:11)The moment I shut my mouth and refused to say anything except what God said about Virginia, she started to improve and never looked back. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

My point is, when things arenโ€™t working, when weโ€™re doing all we know to do – standing and standing, believing and confessing – and we still arenโ€™t seeing results, we need to HEAR FROM GOD! ๐Ÿ’ฌ

The Holy Spirit is our HELPER! He is right there, close by, wanting to show us what to do – but we need to ask Him to help us and then tune our ear to hear Him.๐Ÿ‘‚๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ•Š

And when we do – when we humble ourselves and ask the Holy Spirit for wisdom, He will show us EXACTLY what we need to do because He wants us to walk in victory more than we want to! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

Thatโ€™s GOOD NEWS! โค๏ธ#faithtalks
