I AM The Cure

Anxiety has become an epidemic of great proportion, but they treat the symptoms with a substance that will not cure, only pacify.

I want to heal them.

I want to remove the fear–wipe away every tear.

I AM the cure.

“With them indeed is fulfilled the prophesy of Isaiah which says: ‘You shall indeed hear but never understand, and you shall indeed see but never perceive. for this people’s heart has grown dull, and their ears are heavy of hearing, and their eyes have closed, lest they should perceive with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and turn for me to heal them.'” Matthew 13:14-15

Many expect instant answers for relief from the pain; invested a lifetime without any gain; yet give me just a moment–refusing to stay.

Yield to My Way; the Way to be healed–yield!

It takes time to build a kingdom and yet moments to tear it down. Just turn away and destruction begins–until you yield again–turn My way and enter in.

Resisting is the key–resist Satan and he will flee. But resisting isn’t passive you see.

Aggressively order him to leave!

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” James 4:7

When anxiety comes–command fear to go; order pain away. I didn’t leave you defenseless, but you must come to your senses–it’s all in My Word. I will heal your body, but you must guard the words you speak. I will deliver you from shame, but you must find the time to seek.

Yield to stay–I AM the Way you seek…

Guard what you speak!

“And to the centurion Jesus said, “Go; be it done for you as you have believed.” And the servant was healed at that very moment.” Matthew 8:13

“And behold, a woman who had suffered from a hemorrhage for twelve years came up behind him and touched the fringe of his garment; for she said to herself, “If I only touch his garment, I shall be made well.” Jesus turned, and seeing her he said, “Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And instantly the woman was made well.” Matthew 9:20-22

“And as Jesus passed on from there, two blind men followed him, crying aloud, “Have mercy on us, Son of David.” When he entered the house, the blind men came to him; and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to him, “Yes, Lord.” Then he touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith be it done to you.” And their eyes were opened.–” Matthew 9:27-30a

“And he called the twelve together and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal.” Matthew 9:1-2

“And they departed and went through the villages, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere.” Matthew 9:6

“And when Jesus entered Peter’s house, he saw his mother-in-law lying sick with a fever; he touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she rose and served him. That evening they brought to him many who were possessed with demons; and he cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick. This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah, “He took our infirmities and bore our diseases.” Matthew 8:14-17

“”Every one then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who build his house upon the rock; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.

And every one who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house upon the sand; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell; and great was the fall of it.”” Matthew 7:24-27

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” Romans 15:13

“Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in his ways!” Psalms 128:1


Exhale to Breathe

An empty heart is quiet and feels nothing–as if numb. You think you cannot go on and you really don’t care anymore for you are weary–spent.

There is so much hope for you, for you are in the best position to be filled!

For there is room for Me.

You see, when one is casting about–struggling with feelings, thoughts and emotions, I AM just more noise in the midst of their chaos.

I lead My sheep beside still waters that they may drink.

“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want; he makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul.” Psalms 23:1-2

You cannot drink in the midst of your struggle. You must be calmed, quieted. For you to be filled, I must be welcomed–invited.

Empty out that I may come in.

Releasing all the turmoil, struggles and fears to immediately receive My Peace, Comfort, and Hope is like exhaling to breathe again.

Fresh Air–No more despair.

The exchange that must be led by you.

For I do not force Myself upon you; I wait for you to realize that you need Me. I lead you to a quiet place, then offer you a drink.

“As a hart longs for flowing streams, so longs my soul for thee, O God.” Psalms 42:1

Fresh water–the substance of life; It is and–


“How precious is thy steadfast love, O God! The children of men take refuge in the shadow of thy wings. They feast on the abundance of thy house, and thou givest them drink from the river of thy delights. For with thee is the fountain of life; in thy light do we see light.” Psalms 36:7-9

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.” Psalms 51:10

“Teach me thy way, O Lord, that I may walk in thy truth; unite my heart to fear thy name. I give thanks to thee, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify thy name for ever.

For great is thy steadfast love toward me; thou hast delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.” Psalms 86:11-13



Hope Springs Eternal

The substance of a heart is much like the substance of faith. You cannot see the substance of a person’s heart, for it is hidden inside, but you have an idea of its makeup and, by outward expression, you receive an understanding of how it feels, reacts, responds. You speak to that person and you can tell if there is love within.

So it is with faith–you don’t see it, but you have an impression that it is there, and it is revealed by the outward expression of hope. In other words when hope takes action, a response of faith springs forth–hope springs eternal.

If you put action to your hope, faith emerges, and as faith emerges, you are encouraged. As you are encouraged faith grows–springs out of your heart as a stream of life…


Allow this faith to flow from your heart, through your mouth, mixed with the Word, and it shall not return void or empty. Hope shall spring eternal.

Your answer will come!

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” Rom. 15:13

“He who believes in me, as the scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart shall flow rivers of living water'” Jn. 7:38

“The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters; the fountain of wisdom is a gushing stream.” Prov. 18:4

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Heb. 11:1 KJV

“–because we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.” II Cor. 4:18

“Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.” II Thess. 2:16-17




Gifted Hands

Stir up the gift that is within you by the laying on of hands.

This practice has been greatly misunderstood. Many are the novices that are too quick to impart and extend their hand to another, foolishly, speaking anything that comes to mind; often of the flesh and not through My Spirit. Others have demeaned this practice and refused it as foolishness.

My Word says not to be ‘quick’ in the laying on of hands. It is meant to be an impartation in the Spirit. The elder blesses and exercises faith over the younger in the Lord. This is not determined by age, but the impartation of wisdom in the Spirit. There are times when a child shall lead.

Exercise faith through the laying on of hands…

  • Impartation of the anointing
  • Expression of wisdom, when spoken through faith in the Spirit
  • Strengthening faith in the one who receives by point of contact

All are good when done in faith through the wisdom of the Spirit and spoken rightly.

Let all things be in order, by faith, and in love.

“Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked the people; but Jesus said, ‘Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.’ And he laid his hands on them and went away.” Matthew 19:13-15

“And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple, and he healed them. But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying out in the temple, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant; and they said to him, “Do you hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes; have you never read, ‘Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast brought perfect praise’?” Matthew 21:14-16

“Do not neglect the gift you have, which was given you by prophetic utterance when the elders laid their hands upon you.” I Timothy 4:14

“Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:18-20

“Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands, nor participate in another man’s sins; keep yourself pure.” I Timothy 5:22

“A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.” Proverbs 18:2

“Better is a poor and wise youth than an old and foolish king, who will no longer take advice–” Ecclesiastes 4:13a

“Guard your steps when you go to the house of God; to draw near to listen is better than to offer the sacrifice of fools; for they do not know that they are doing evil. Be not rash with your mouth, nor let your heart be hasty to utter a word before God, for God is in heaven, and you upon earth; therefore let your words be few. For a dream comes with much business, and a fool’s voice with many words.” Ecclesiastes 5:1-3

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:23-25

“Command and teach these things. Let no one despise your youth, but set the believers an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.” I Timothy 4:11-12

“So, my brethren, earnestly desire to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues; but all things should be done decently and in order.” I Corinthians 14:39


Draw Near

Draw near unto Me with full assurance and a pure heart; confident that I will perform My Word in your life. For if you believe with your whole heart, that My word is true, then you can know that it is impossible for Me to lie; it is impossible for Me to fail you.

Why do you fear child, as if I do not hear? What makes you think I don’t care; why the uncertainty?

  • Trust
  • Know
  • Believe

I have full confidence in you–a human that is frail. Will you have confidence in Me–a God of all power? I will prevail. Never be it said that I have let you down; it is impossible. I AM a God of all things possible to them that believe.

Stop casting blame on Me–on others.

Look to your own heart

Take responsibility



“And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. Truly I say to you whoever says to  this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you receive it, and you will. And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against any one; so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.” Mk. 11:22-26

“–With men it is impossible, but not with God, for all things are possible with God.” Mk. 10:27

“Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you; therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you.” Is. 30:18

“Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the sanctuary by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way which he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, and since we have a great high priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Heb. 10:19-25


Only Believe

I have a time and a season for every good thing.

The seed is planted. It lies seemingly dormant, but it is at work in your heart as you ponder the idea of it. When you grasp the idea it begins to put down roots, tiny hair-like fibers at first. They are so tentative and delicate that if you put your “self” into it you would break them off. Pull it up and look at it too closely, and it will die. Don’t jump too quickly in the flesh and try to make it happen. Allow it to work on the inside of you and, in time, as it grows and puts down stronger roots the image and plan will grow in your heart. It will become clearer and, along with the image, an urging to move forth. You will feel a prompting to act. Go with what you know.

I will call you to step forth in one direction. Only one. I will not scatter you to and fro but, one path, one step–a clear direction. Do not follow after strange gods, but follow your God and you will see My will become your will.

You are learning obedience and discipline right now, and you are doing well. You please the Father greatly. You often ponder how you appear to others. Do not worry or even think about this. Keep your eyes fixed on your Father in Heaven and His will for you and it will manifest when His plans and purpose for your life manifest. You won’t care one bit what anyone thinks of you, for you will be gloriously happy and joyful that you have obeyed your God.

You cannot imagine the joy and delight set before you. You have been chosen for greatness far beyond your comprehension of what you know. No man has accomplished what will manifest in your life. Abraham couldn’t comprehend either and yet I chose him for greatness and it came to pass. It began when he believed and it was accounted to him as righteousness.

Only believe!

“–for I have chosen him, that he may charge his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice; so that the Lord may bring to Abraham what he has promised him.” Genesis  18:19

“No distrust made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, fully convinced that God was able to do what He had promised. That is why his faith was reckoned to him as righteousness.” But the words, “it was reckoned to him,” were written not for his sake alone, but for ours also. It will be reckoned to us who believe in Him that raised from the dead Jesus our Lord, who was put to death for our trespasses and raised for our justification. Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through Him we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in our hope of sharing the glory of God.”  Romans  4:20-5:2

“Take heed lest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside and serve other gods and worship them…” Deuteronomy  11:16a


Be Glorified

The hope that is within you is the same hope that raised Christ from the dead. Hope is desire–mixed with the Word, becomes faith–that births spiritual energy–the life of God within you–manifests to the Glory of God! It all begins with hope, but if hope is not built upon it remains as hope and nothing more. The end is never accomplished if the foundation is not built upon.

Many Christians never move beyond the foundation of hope. They hope they are saved. They never look into the perfect law of liberty. their eyes never feed on My Word. Their ears hear very little of My Word and yet they hope. What basis do they have to anchor that hope? They can’t know for sure if they are even saved, because they choose to remain ignorant to My Word that would be their anchor secure of truth. It is a futile practice that repeats over and over throughout the generations.

“Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through Him we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand and we rejoice in our hope of sharing the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit which has been given to us.”  Rom.  5:1-5

“May you be strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”  Col.   1:11-14
