Abram drove them away

And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon. And he took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not. And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove them away. (‭Genesis‬ ‭15‬:‭9-11‬ KJV)

In this passage. Abraham is being given instructions on an offering to lay before the Lord in regards to God’s promise of a child. I want to focus on the last part of this verse where it states “Abraham drove them away.”

There are many promises that the Lord has given each and everyone of us. Promises of healing both in the mind and the body. Promises of strengthening marriages, marital restoration, promises of childbearing etc. you have a responsibility in defending those promises to drive anything away that is in opposition to those promises.

How do you drive things away? By the word of God.

Standing over your promises declaring and decree in the word of God drives away demonic forces, negative words and any opposing forces.

After Jesus came out of the wilderness from the 40 days and 40 nights he was tempted by the devil. The way that Jesus drove the devil away was by the word of God. Abraham literally protected the offering and physically drove away the things that were trying to eat the promises away. We understand that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities rulers of darkness in high places. We drive away the enemy from all promises by decreeing the word of God.

It is written: By His stripes, I am healed
It is written: What God has joined together
It is written: God has plans to prosper me

Drive the buzzards away from your promises by decreeing the word of the Lord!

Its football season and everyone goes nuts when the opposing teams ball is intercepted by the team you are rooting for. Intercept means to stop, deflect, or interrupt the progress or intended course of.

It’s time for some spiritual interceptions to take place. It’s time to stop allowing the opposing team any more yards gained in your progress. The attacks are intercepted by prayers of the righteous,
Those prayers availeth much.

Perform some interceptions today!

1. If the enemy is attacking you with fear, INTERCEPT with “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

2. If the enemy is attacking your body with illness, INTERCEPT with “By His stripes I am healed.”

3. If you are fighting temptations of the flesh, INTERCEPT with “And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.”

4. If you are fighting attacks in your mind, INTERCEPT with “I cast down all imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.”

5. If you are fighting attacks against your business or income, INTERCEPT with “It is the Lord that gives me power to gain wealth.”

In Jesus name, Amen!

Standing – The Physical Exam

As I read through many of the postings on FB and other places. The foundation that everyone is trying to get at is why this strife is happening to them.
Many begin to explain the comings and goings of every aspect of their lives as they look for someone to explain to them why God is allowing this to happen.

You are hurt even at the point of despair and any sort of relief is welcomed to end the “right now” pain.

When you go to a doctor, you give him/her the symptoms of what you are experiencing. There are times where the physician can immediately give a diagnosis write a prescription and send you out the door. Then there are times where testing has to take place to get to the root of the issue (diagnosis) followed by a treatment plan.

When you express what you are going through, you are expressing the symptoms. It is going to take an examination of the Great Physician to give you a diagnosis and the proper treatment plan which consist of His Word, Your Faith, and your Mindset. There is no one on this natural physical earth that can tell you the right way to your victory but they can encourage you in knowing that you are victorious and more than a conqueror.

As you seek God, He can begin to reveal what the source of the issue is. The problem with this is, we don’t usually like what He shows us and the reason we don’t like it is because He starts with us, not our spouse, children, family etc… Yes a symptom may be separation, but the root cause could be a generational curse that has come down through your lineage to you and/or your spouse. If mom went through it, granddad went through it then something is not right.

Just like there are inherited diseases in the natural, there are generational diseases in the spirit. Once you figure out the issue then you have to begin to break that thing out of your life, and guess what, it does not happen overnight. Treatment plans are administered over time to ensure the disease is wiped out with all of its roots.

If God has told you to stand for your family’s salvation, deliverance, marriage etc., then you are the one that He saw before the world began.
God said “Cheryl” will be the one that will awaken herself and break every generational curse so that the generations to come will not be affected.

There is always one that God can trust to see an assignment through and that my friend is you.

Take your symptoms to God and ask Him for a diagnosis and treatment plan to end cycles that have been plaguing your family for years.

Physicals save lives, it is not admitting that you need a physical that can lead to death. Death of purpose and destiny for you and generations to come.

Make your appointment and go to Dr. Jesus today! He is right every time!

In light of the news and its reports on the ISIS situation something came to me.

These people literally sit back and plan how they can hurt Or destroy Americans. That is their focus and goal – sad but true. They sit around and contemplate how to take people out for no reason Except jealousy and hatred.

This is the same thing that the enemy and his kingdom of darkness does.

Assassinate is defined in Webster: to injure or destroy unexpectedly and treacherously. This is the enemy’s goal against all of us.

John 10:10 – “ The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

So now our white house administration has to sit back and plan how to counterattack this attack and currently as we speak, their are planes in the air hovering over ISIS ready to perform an airstrike if necessary.

Matthew 11:12 – “Now from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take
It by force.”

There is power in the spoken Word of God.

In Genesis 1:2 – …the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters and when God spoke creation began…..

I understand crying, hurt and pain but none of that is going to move the enemy. The only thing that moves the enemy is the WORD OF GOD!!!! Just as the white house is planning to do we must do also.

You have to hover over your situations speaking, decreeing and declaring the Word of God. As you speak the Word of God, it is just like bullets being sent upon your enemy, turning the treacherous acts they sent out towards themselves.

If the enemy has come against your finances and you are a tither: Assassinate them with: It is written, if I bring my tithes into the
storehouse, that God Will rebuke the devour for my sake in Jesus name! Bind up debt and poverty and loose wealth in Jesus name!

If the enemy has come against your family and their salvation: Assassinate them with, It is written, that God promised my entire house-
hold will be saved. Bind up every rebellious spirit and loose salvation into each one of their lives in Jesus name!

If the enemy has come against your health: Assassinate them with, It is written: healing is the children’s bread. He was wounded for my transgressions, bruised for my iniquities the chastisement of my peace was upon Him and by His stripes I am HEALED!!! Bind sickness and
disease, loose healing in Jesus name!

If the enemy has come against your marriage: Assassinate them with, It is written: What God has joined together, let no man (woman, spirit)
separate. Bind the spirit of divorce and separation, loose unity and restoration of the marital covenant in Jesus name!

Continue to speak the Word of God and you will spend less time on the temporary natural circumstance you see in your face! Yes I know they
Are talking about you, judging you, giving you bad doctors reports, telling you that it’s over and to move on but you continue to praise the NAME
That is above all the other names. Jesus is the name that demons tremble. Everything the enemy throws, throw it back, return to sender!!!

Your fight is not on the ground but in the air! You are seated in heavenly places and the enemy is under your feet. You are launching your weapon
Of mass destruction not from the ground but from the 3rd heaven into the second heaven. You have been given authority to tread upon serpents,
Scorpions and over all the power of the enemy. Your fight is not with people but against spirits!!!

So continue to fight the good fight of faith, in the AIR seated in heavenly places!

II Corinthians 12:7-10
“And to keep me from being puffed up and too much elated by the exceeding greatness (preeminence) of these revelations, there was given
Me a thorn (a splinter) in the flesh, a messenger of satan, to rack and buffet and harass me, to keep me from being excessively exalted. Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, For My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses
For Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

When I was believing God to restore my marriage I heard someone say that even after the manifestation you never stop standing. It is the most exact and true statement that was ever spoken. One day my husband and I were riding in the car and he said “Cheryl you are not praying like you should.” After discussing the matter, I realized that I entered into a “rest” mode. I had been praying for years and now that I had breakthrough I decided that God wanted me to take a break. I mean He does tell us to rest in him, right? ;) It was after that statement and an
revelation that I understood that my husband is my head and his head is Christ. If God told him that I was not praying enough then I had to accept
that was the case. Since then I have been on a daily mission confront the devil and his team of demons, sending everything they send my way right back to them. (Return to Sender!!!)

The splinter that Paul talks about in the scripture above is not an actual physical splinter. It is something that continuously was poking and
prodding at him attempting to make him give up on his ministry, call and life. The enemy never backs down, he just changes his ways of doing things to get you to give up. Every day that you wake up you must be prepared for battle against the thorn(s) in your side. Yes your family has been restored but the tactics that the enemy used to break it up will never cease. You must daily decree the word regarding your family and situations.

If your family had issues with finances and now has been restored. Continue to decree the word over your finances and tell the enemy what he will not do.
If you were a nagging wife or a controlling husband continue to declare and decree that you will not go back to those ways. If your family had issues with infidelity, continue to bind up the strongman associated with that issue, and all spirits connected to it sending it
back to the pits of hell where it came from etc. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 – Pray without ceasing……..the enemy never ceases so why should you?

When a doctor prescribes antibiotics he/she instructs you to take all of it even when the symptoms have ceased. Why? Taking the entire course ensures
That the infection is gone. The same thing goes for prayer. Manifestation of your answered prayers indicates that the symptoms are gone, but you must
Continue to take the entire course which ends at “until death do you part.” Prayer is the antibiotic that you will take until the day you leave this earth.
The manifestation of your prayers will continue throughout generations as long as Jesus delays His return.

Pray without ceasing!!!!!


1 Samuel 17:16 – “For forty days the Philistine came forward every morning and evening and took his stand.”

Newsflash: The enemy never relents in his stand against you. In turn, you must never relent in your STAND against him. Daily, you must do spiritual warfare!

But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. (Psalms 1:2 KJV)

1 Samuel 17:4-7 “A champion named Goliath, who was from Gath, came out of the Philistine camp. His height was six cubits and a span. He had a bronze helmet on his head and wore a coat of scale armor of bronze weighing five thousand shekels; on his legs he wore bronze greaves, and a bronze javelin was slung on his back. His spear shaft was like a weaver’s rod, and its iron point weighed six hundred shekels. His shield bearer went ahead of him.”

Ephesians 6:11-18 “ Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to STAND against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[c] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. STAND therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; PRAYING ALWAYS with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit,

What are you standing on today? Bad doctor’s report? Upcoming court date? Fear? Worry? Condemnation? If you are, that is exactly what the enemy wants you to do, just like Goliath did. He wore all of this outlandish stuff to frighten the people by their 20/20 vision, inhibiting them from seeing in the spirit what God had said regarding their trial.

God has given us everything that we need to Stand. The stand that we take is in another realm. He has given us the authority to trample on serpents, scorpions and over all the power of the enemy. Yes we have to take a stand in natural circumstances but the stand that we take in the spirit realm makes the natural realm obey. Stand on by His stripes you are healed. Stand on God has not given me a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind. Stand on there is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus!

Stand every morning and every evening.

Praying always…..

A Lesson From the Trash Can

Today at lunch as I was throwing away paper towel I noticed that I had also thrown some money in there with it. I began to walk away saying it was only $3 but then decided to attempt to retrieve it.

As I looked down I saw the money lying something not so pleasing but I went ahead and reached down and grabbed it.

I then proceeded to the closest sink to wash my hands just in case any of the not so pleasant trash got on them. The money was perfectly fine and spendable.

As I was walking away with my “dirty money” the Holy Spirit used this experience to speak to me about people. Money in any increment is valuable and so are people. Just because they may be mingling in around the wrong people, involved in ungodly and illegal activities does not make them any less valuable. Someone just has to be willing to get their hands dirty, reach in and grab the valuable items.

Will you stand in the gap for someone who may not be doing the right things but has purpose and worth? Will you pray for that child of yours that is on drugs or in a gang even though you are completely embarrassed of their current actions? Will you pray for a prodigal spouse, child or relative to reconcile themselves back to God and then to their families? Will you pray for the healing of someone that you consider to be an enemy?

The blood of Jesus does that for us. It cleanses us and washes of all our filth and sets us before the King of kings to be used for His use.
Each and every person has value because God loves them no matter what trash can they may be currently residing in.

Instead of walking away from what you may consider trash because they are dirty and covered in filth, reach in grab them, pray for them, wash them in the blood of Jesus and watch God use them in His way.

Money can be replaced but where a person will spend eternity cannot.
