In the book of Luke, chapter 18, there is a parable of an unjust judge, who, out of irritation, gives a favorable judgment for a women who was being harassed by her adversary.

When I read the Bible, I always put myself and my situations in the parables I have read, and look for solutions to the issues or problems that I am facing at the time.

What situation are you facing today that is screaming in your mind? Is it stealing your peace or disturbing your sleep?

If it is, then try what I do when I am in the same situation. I speak God’s word over my situation and decree and declare the Truth, even when it appears to be the opposite of what is going on in my life.

I begin by praying a simple prayer and ask the Holy Spirit to lead me into all truth and guide me as I walk through this situation/problem, and out of it as well, into complete victory. I pray something like this out loud as well:
“Father, in the name of Jesus, I silence every rioting spirit in my mind and command every harassing spirit to go! My mind is clear! And I can claim in advance that my future is better than my now! I am destined to win and walk in peace and joy! Nothing can separate me from Your love and Your purpose for my life. I am free from all that tries to hinder me. 🙏🏻 Amen

I love what 1 Peter 4:12-13 says in The Message Version, “… Friends, when life gets really difficult, don’t jump to the conclusion that God isn’t on the job. Instead, be glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner …”

Take some time today and read 1 Peter 4:12-13 and pray them over yourself and your situations. Watch the power of the Word transform your world.
