Are You Dealing With Grief?

Are You Dealing with Grief?

Today every direction you look there is news or information about loss, such as death, dying, murder, tragedy, etc. Death is a natural part of life. However, death can be untimely, unlawful, premature, and unexpected where you simply are not prepared for the intensity of emotions and everything that you may feel.

There are many written descriptions and definitions of grief. There are many theories about grief, but nothing really can describe or explain how each person experiences grief. Or how an individual may process the stages of grief. Grief has been described as deep sorrow ( Grief is thought of as the response to loss. “…Although conventionally focused on the emotional response to loss, grief also has physical, cognitive, behavioral, social, cultural, and spiritual dimensions….” (

I want to talk to you about my personal experience of grief. I have lost many close family members and friends throughout the years. The death of both parents. The death of my mother, over 20 years ago, was the most devastating until September 2022.

As family/friends poured in over a period of three days, I watched them all thinking why are they here, why are they upset, why are they acting like this? Stacey is fine. I had previously witnessed her receive so many miracles, for years, that I refused to accept what was happening. I was in a place called “Denial”. I know this may sound odd, but it is what it is. And on that day ‘It’ is where I was. Denial can masquerade itself as ‘faith’.

For many months prior the Lord told me to prepare myself for September. I prayed and spoke forth God’s protections, blessings, grace, strength, provision, healing, etc. over September. God did not give me any specific instructions other than, “Something life changing will happen in September”.

Let Me Go Back a Minute

The only other time I had this type of prophetic instruction was years ago beginning December 2001 while in watch night/cross over into the new year prayer. I heard the Lord say, “Prepare yourself for October 2002”. During that time of prayer, I felt the weight of that word and cried out to God to cancel whatever it was. I knew that it was a warning to prepare myself. The first months of 2002 was given to prayer about October. I became nervous, even though I had been praying and seeking guidance about October. There was a sharp shift in my spirit around August 2002 when the Holy Spirit reminded me of the word. I didn’t know why but it was strong, as if danger was approaching. Let me tell you, I knew whatever it was; It was Big in my life.

The Precision of God

In September 2002 I consulted the Lord. Lord, you said to prepare myself for October of this year? The Lord assured me that He would be with me and would give me strength to overcome. I began to thank God for His help and strength to endure, to overcome whatever it was. I know some people may not believe in prophetic warnings and may choose to only believe in prophetic blessings. But I have lived my entire life receiving prophetic warning which are in fact the blessings of the Lord.

Some people believe that when God gives you a warning that you can pray it away. But I have learned (by the teaching/leading/and guiding of the Holy Spirit) to receive it just as He gives it! For me when I receive a call to intercession God will give me a vision. And from that vision, I know how to intercede in prayer to change the outcome. But this was not that. This was a clear warning from God.

When the middle of October 2002 passed, I began to get concerned and again consulted the Lord. Lord, you did say prepare myself for October 2002, right. October 20, 2002 the word of the Lord came to pass and my mother transitioned from this life to eternal life. I had wished God would take me but the Holy Spirit reminded me that I had work to do and the children needed me. I suffered a severe depression during this time. I asked God daily to take me. Each day my thoughts of death were interrupted by, “It’s time to pick the kids up from school”. I was in a deep dark pit but people saw me smiling, still going to church, still appearing to be, Okay. I was not okay, but I carried on the best that I could. And with God’s help.

Carry On—Do Not Give Up!

Speaking of overcoming “Still going to church” is what saved me. It’s important to surround yourself with the right environment, to connect with people who believe in the power of prayer. To be in the atmosphere of the preached word of God. To be in the midst of praise, prayer, worship, and the Word.

God is Faithful

So when I received the warning to prepare myself for September 2022. I was a praying sister because my only frame of reference for this kind of word, was my Mother October 2002. I began to pray in the Spirit daily and my time was spent praying in the spirit and working. I even prayed in the Spirit while working. I knew a mighty storm was coming.

The Holy Spirit directed me to tell my daughter (Stacey) to read Romans chapter 8 and to meditate on it. She did and said that it blessed her tremendously. She said she felt a strong desire to grow even closer to God and to grow spiritually. She called me in the middle of the night and wanted to pray. As we prayed, the Holy Spirit led me to “walk her through Romans chapter 8”.

I began reading it to her slowly, I was reading it but it was as if the Lord Himself was reading it to her. She began to cry, Oh my God Ma something is happening to me. The pain is gone! I feel God so strongly. She started to cry and rejoice. She said it was as if the Lord was purifying her, she couldn’t explain it. She said she desperately wanted to be closer to Jesus. I told her it was the power of the Holy Spirit.

On September 15, 2022 while in worship and prayer, I received an intense prophetic warning. This shook me to the core because my daughter (Stacey) was scheduled to have an important procedure that day. I needed to pray before going to the hospital. God assured me that the outcome today would be good, she would go in and come out of the procedure with no complications. The Lord was with her and she did go in and come out safely.

As I sat there in the family surgical waiting area, the Lord said this will be my last time there for Stacey. But it was not a good feeling. He was warning me, “Soon”. Initially I got upset and began to reject it. After recovery when we were back in Stacey’s room, she kept saying Ma, I’m over all of this. She looked me in the eyes and said Ma, I love you but I’m tired, I really am Tired and I’m done. I want you to understand that I’m not loosing faith, my faith in God is strong as ever. But I need you to understand that I am Over It. I’m tired. I’m ready to be done with all of this.

Her words hit me Hard; but the Lord helped me to keep my composure. Ordinarily I would have went into praying her out of that and going on and on until she was encouraged. But that day, I listened. I knew! The Lord had warned me, “Soon”. Over the next few days She kept saying, I want to go home. The doctors said she needed to go to rehab to get stronger before leaving the hospital.

I begged her to go to rehab just until her oxygen level was safe and stable. She agreed reluctantly, but I felt heavy as if she really didn’t want to and didn’t intend to. One morning she called upset because the entire team (at her bedside) advised her it was unsafe for her to go home, she needed skilled rehab/therapy/and stabilized oxygen support to go home safely.

She was adamant, I Want to Go Home. And she did! Stacey Marie my 33 year old daughter graduated from this life on September 25, 2022. But for the two days prior I cried out to God and late one night the Holy Spirit reminded me “Soon”. This is ‘Soon’ and I knew. On Sept 25th 2022 while standing at her bedside, in a room full of people I felt her kiss me on my right cheek. I felt her hug me. Although I knew, That was the day I felt defeated and completely overwhelmed, “God I can’t go on! I can’t make it through this! Lord, please take me”. I sat there in some state of shock, dismay, disbelief, unbelief, and adamant denial. Then reality and Acceptance.

I watched my daughter Tracey (Stacey’s twin) closely. I watched the look in her eyes. I literally sat there and watched her withdraw within. She appeared present, but I knew and could hear her thoughts. Previously I was relieved to hear Tracey pray at Stacey’s bedside. But I had this sinking feeling that if Stacey leaves, Tracey will soon follow. I rebuked the very idea of it all. I rejected the idea of Stacey leaving and the idea of Tracey following.

Awareness of ‘Christ in Me’

All during Stacey’s homegoing preparation/funeral—I kept feeling like there was more devastation to come—Tracey?. My God, how I prayed. I rebuked premature death; I rejected the spirit of grief over Tracey; I dismantled every wicked plot of the enemy over Tracey. I flat out refused to hear, Tracey will not be here Soon. I screamed and yelled NO. I cried, begged, and prayed NO. I said the spirit of fear was trying to come upon me through grief. I would not accept it.

I talked to Tracey and rebuked the spirit of heaviness over her. I told her to be careful what words she speaks because our words have power and to cancel the assignment of any words about giving up and feeling like she’s not supposed to be here without Stacey. She said, “Okay Ma, I know I’m not giving up. I’m still trusting Jesus”. Tracey also kept saying she wants to get closer to God; feeling like she needed to draw closer”.

One night Tracey said they started going to church more and she was feeling more hopeful and planning her life. She expressed big plans concerning her life. I knew the Lord was moving on her and it gave me hope and courage. I thanked God and prayed for her continuously. I had a dream about a thief attacking me and stealing the laptop that I was holding onto. In the dream I had just stepped out of this mobile home type building where there was a large apartment complex next door.

As I was leaving the building and stepped down the two stairs and onto the parking lot a thief ran up on me and snatched the laptop out of my hand. I reached to grab it back from the strongman/thief but he ran away. I woke up gasping and startled. I immediately began to pray and cancel the robbery and declare that the thief will be caught. I went into warfare prayer and asked the Holy Spirit to help me catch the thief and restore what he snatched away from me.

This was a prophetic dream. I can tell the difference because of the way I feel upon waking or remembering. I tried to go back to sleep to go back to the dream and stop the thief, but could not get back into the dream. The next dream I had that same night was of all these women at my house praying, preaching and prophesying. My nieces were there and one of them was prophesying and praying in the spirit.

In the dream I was watching all these women praying at my house then we all went into the kitchen and started cooking food in preparation for the event we were praying about. The power of God was so strong in the dream. I woke up knowing the two dreams were somehow connected. The next morning I was trembling, shaking for no reason. I thought maybe I shouldn’t send my granddaughter to school but the Holy Spirit said send her.

I prepared for work quickly because I felt something was about to happen, but I didn’t know what it was. Why was I shaking and trembling? I prayed Lord what is it? Oh God, I need to call Tracey, but I thought no she’s at work. I knew my sons were all home, so I tried to settle myself. Just as I was praying, Father, whatever it is I release it to you in the name of Jesus. My phone started ringing 3 calls at the same time. I knew!

I just knew I had to get to Tracey, but no one had told me anything yet. I called the first number it was the hospital; all they would tell me is that Tracey had been involved in a traumatic event. I started screaming, Is She Alive? Tell me the truth, please tell me. The person said, I can still hear her voice so clearly today— “It doesn’t look good”. I called my sons screaming and crying, when I got there and walked into the hospital doors—-the trembling stopped immediately.

I knew going up on elevator that Tracey was gone but I still prayed fervently. My clinical judgement knew upon walking in the room looking at the monitors, but my mother instinct still refused. As the doctor talked with me, I heard every detail but still could not accept that this is happening.

God had a woman there (a complete stranger) who was praying for Tracey (On the way there I had asked God to send an angel to pray and let Tracey hear them praying). When I walked into the room she was praying and agreed with me for a miracle. Then she began to cover me in prayer. God sent this woman. She kept telling me that the Holy Spirit told her to get on a plane and get to that hospital but she did not know why (She was from Delaware). While traveling her cousin called her and said that her cousin was in ICU (the room happened to be next to Tracey).

God’s precious prayer warrior initially thought God had told her to come because her cousin was fighting for his life. She described how when she first got there she was rushing to get to her cousins room (next door to Tracey) but it was as if suddenly the Holy Spirit yanked her to go into Tracey’s room and pray. This would have been while I was on my way rushing there. God had indeed sent his ministering agent ahead of me. She was praying mightily for Tracey.

Let’s Be Clear

When I say that I received prophetic instruction what I mean is, I have a history with the Lord in this. When he speaks or reveals a word to me, It Comes to Pass. I live my life following His instruction, guidance, direction. I consider the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ, God’s precious Spirit to be my personal and very best friend. However or whenever He chooses to speak or reveal to me, it has never failed, since I was a child. We have history, and a close relationship that I completely depend upon and trust. My life has been tremendously blessed by His instructions and leading.

I trust His leading even when I don’t understand, even when I disagree. Like the day I was working in the yard and ‘knew’ my nephew was going to die soon. I kept seeing his face everywhere. I rebuked it and cried out to God. When I heard, in the Spirit he is going to die very soon, I also heard that I would experience it just like his mother would experience it. The knowing was so strong that I sat there in a field of tall grass with the heat from the sun beeming on me. I dropped the electric trimmers I was cutting the grass down with.

I began sweating profusely and shaking my head, I was saying God no. No please Lord. The next day I got the devastating news but it had really happened that previous night. I was hesitant to answer my phone. During this time, I became what I can only describe as ‘paralyzed’. I became physically ill at the weightiness of it all. I’m only sharing here what is related to grief. I honor and respect God totally.

He is Lord of my life and I so appreciate and welcome Him in every area of my life. I respect His Voice. I love the Lord and am assured of His great love for me. I believe in the power of the Holy Spirit and that God will prepare His people. God desires to speak clearly with His people to warn, prepare, bless and build you up according to His will and according to the plan and assignment he has for your life.

I believe in receiving prophetic warning, blessings, and directions. I am alive today because of the voice of the Lord. “Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.” Revelation 3:22. We as followers of Christ are the church, the living body of Christ. God wants to reveal himself to you. It’s all about the Relationship. When you value a relationship, you tend to listen and pay closer attention to the people you love and respect. When your life is the Assignment and your story brings the Father Glory—–you are able to Trust in the Lord with all your heart (Proverbs 3:5-6).

The Lord wants to have a lifetime of conversations with you. Are you willing to allow quality time with Him, giving Jesus your undivided attention. Are you concerned about His will for your life. Do you want God’s insight and guidance in your life? Do you honor the Word of God? Are you walking with God?

My Tracey Ann transitioned from this life to eternity on March 21, 2023, almost 6 months from her twin (Stacey’s) death. As I stood there looking at Tracey’s face, all I could see was Peace. I saw such peace and this gave me great comfort. Tracey was listed as a Donor and when they asked me, I immediately had a flashback of a conversation we had where Tracey was very troubled about something pertaining to donating a kidney when Stacey needed a new kidney. I

I remembered how important being a donor was to Tracey and how she had said long ago that one day she would be able to be an organ donor. When I received the report of the different people who were blessed with a part of Tracey I was amazed and comforted. Tracey was violently murdered! I completely trust God’s justice.


During one of my intense ‘bad’ days I thought this is it Lord. I cannot make it through this. The pain was so intense and consuming that I almost asked God, to take me. But right at that moment the Precious Holy Spirit invaded. I felt the presence of God so strong. I was crying, God Help Me. A spirit of worship rose within me. I began to worship God, His presence was overwhelming.

I felt the love and strength of God come over me in waves. I was not aware of time passing or anything. I was in Him and He was in me. Jesus poured oil over my head and it ran down. I was praying in a depth of language a spiritual language and I began to pray in tongues that was nothing like I had ever experienced.

I then stood up and put on a garment of praise for the future spirit of heaviness. I have experienced the supernatural strength of God when Stacey died, it was an all sustaining strength that I had never experienced before. I could not comprehend this grace or the power of God to overcome. I received strength in the inner man.

Now this encounter with Jesus concerning the things to come with Tracey’s murder and how to deal with loosing both of my girls. How to deal with the deep hurt when childhood memories flood me. God gave me Help to deal with all the grief. Whether it is a moment or a tsunami, I have been equipped by God to deal with it.

The grace and equipping has come and continues to come in layers and depths. For example, I have obtained the strength of God to handle the day to day. God has given me the power to overcome. I have the Joy of the Lord as my strength. I am more than a conqueror through Him (Jesus) that loves me. I can do what the Word says that I can do. I can have (the Victory) that God says I can have.

But, when I would try to imagine the future without them, no Stacey no Tracey; it was unbearable. I would feel like a little child who runs to their parent when they are afraid in utter fear like a nightmare. One day during this intense moment I heard the Spirit of the Lord say come and sit with me.

As I sat there, I was reminded of the importance of reading the Bible, even when you don’t want to, even when you don’t feel like it, even when it is difficult, even when you are angry and sad. The words that I speak they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63 NIRV— “The Holy Spirit gives life. The body means nothing at all. The words I have spoken to you are full of the Spirit. They give life.”

Then the Holy Spirit led me to read the Psalms. As I read, it was as if I was being washed and showered. I thanked God for the washing of the Word. God’s Word is powerful!!!. It was speaking directly to me; the power of the Word was undeniable.

My answer to the question, Are you Dealing with grief? Is a resounding ‘Yes’. There is a difference between experiencing grief, or handling grief. Grief is something that must be dealt with. I have found that when we began to ‘deal’ God will reveal. We deal, the Father reveals. The Father extends to us an open invitation to Deal. When we decide to Deal with grief, suffering, loss, death, tragedy—God reveals His strategy to us.

What I have found in living through the death of both of my daughters is that there is a way to deal with grief. Grief must be dealt with. We decide how we choose to deal with it. It is a choice. I still choose Jesus. I decided that there is absolutely no way for me to handle this level of loss without the help of God.

I recognized that I need Jesus, who is my help when I need him. Only God can give you strategy for how to deal with an overcome grief. It is a process that the Lord Himself, the Lord strong and mighty on your behalf; will walk you through. It is a process of unfolding and revealing to you how to deal, for you. God wants to give you a custom-made set of tools that is designed specifically for you.

One day not long after Stacey’s funeral I was saying God I don’t want to be in this group. How did I get here? This group that I have always prayed for. This group that No One wants to belong to. The group, Mother’s whose children have died. I don’t want to be a part of this sad and unfortunate group. This tragic group—where it feels unnatural.

I said Lord, I know this is not your will for my life. Then the Holy Spirit began to download/upload scripture to me. Bible stories/testimonies began to flood my mind. It was odd but extremely comforting. It was like Bible stories started dancing through my head. Daniel in the Lion’s den, Gideon and the battle, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abedgno delivered from the fiery furnace, the birth of Jesus, John the Baptist/beheaded, Noah’s Ark, Isaiah’s vision of God, Jesus prophesying to the Samaritan woman, Jesus arrested in the garden of Gethsemane, Paul and Silas in prison praying and worshipping God, Paul’s shipwreck, the Holy Spirit sent to the disciples.

I was caught up in the Spirit and engulfed in His presence. The Lord was revealing more of Himself to me in that moment and I received more strength. I Received the More of God. I received greater revelation of ‘Christ in Me’. I began to declare the Word over myself. I went in worshipping and started thinking about the Lord and who God is.

Every heaviness lifted and I was actually laughing out loud, and had so much joy. The joy and peace He gave me was ridiculous. The Presence of God was revealed within me. I saw myself and heard myself, praying for them when they were small girls. I recalled dedicating them to the Lord. I saw them singing and praising God. I pictured Tracey sitting with me watching preaching and praying and praising on tv, while the other kids were outside playing.

I pictured me and Stacey laughing as we pulled up to nursing school after the 90 minute ride of praising Jesus. We would laugh so hard that we were so caught up in Jesus we forgot we were supposed to be studying and cramming for tests. It was like God was reassuring me, All things really are working together for my good. I knew that God was keeping my sons and family. I was sure that I could help my grandchildren through this process with victory.

I want to encourage you today that you can Deal with Grief. You can do all things through the power of Jesus Christ who gives you strength. God wants you to have the victory. You are called to be not just a conqueror but more than a conqueror, you are an overcomer.

I want to declare to you today that no weapon that is formed against you will be able to prosper and every tongue that rises against you in judgment is condemned. Every fiery dart sent to destroy you will instead make you strong. You will testify of the goodness of God in your life. You will be a light that shines in dark situations with the glory of the Lord. You can make it through this and you will deal with grief because greater is He (the Holy Spirit) that is within you than any attack.

In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, we command the spirit of grief to break off you. We command negative thought patterns Go! In Jesus Christ name. We dress you up in the realm of the spirit. We put upon you the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. You are clothed in the garment of praise that will repel every and anything that comes to defeat you. Like a chemical equation H2O (2 parts hydrogen plus 1 part oxygen produces water). Your deep pain + your loss/loneliness + your suffering+ your grief like a spiritual equation will produce a greater praise.

God will take it all, all that the enemy meant to destroy you; God will turn it to your good. The Lord who is Mighty—will work for your good. Where circumstances say you should be down—God is the lifter of your head. Your worship will transform your tears—as a sweet aroma ascending to the very throne of God. You are like the tree that is planted by the rivers of water you will bring forth your fruit in season, and whatever you do will prosper. Delayed and prolonged grief—Break in the name of Jesus!

Deal Don’t Deny

Don’t deny the hurt, don’t try to act like it’s not happening, don’t shut down and not talk about it. The power of life and death is in your words and you will eat the fruit of your words. Open your mouth and talk. You cannot afford to shut down and shut up. The devil wants you silent and alone.

Share your story. Your story will give God the glory. It’s okay to feel what you feel but it is not okay to refuse to deal. Dealing means you get God’s Revealing. What does it mean to refuse to deal. To refuse to deal with grief involves holding on to your many emotions and feelings and thoughts to the exclusion of God. Experiencing grief in such a way that you are in fact rejecting God.

You are angry and you are sinning when you refuse to forgive. You are operating from a place of pride when you desire vengeance more than you desire God. God will vindicate, vengeance belongs to God and He will repay. Let God be God and you be a follower of Christ. First things first, you should be seeking the Kingdom of God and his righteousness.

Have you acknowledged the Word of God in your situation—the Bible—God’s Word. What instruction does the Word tell you. What decisions have you made and what confessions have you made. Have you decided to choose Jesus and His way of doing things. Have you spoken ungodly words in your grief and prayed for others to suffer.

Do you think, it’s not handled unless it happens your way; then you are operating in pride. And let me tell you dear brother and sister, pride goes before a fall. Pride comes before destruction. If you are handling grief by holding on to unforgiveness and bitterness then you are outside of God’s will for your life.

Yes, it is not easy. Yes, it is a process but forgiveness is necessary. You have received the Lord’s forgiveness and you are required to forgive others. Refusing to forgive is sin. Unforgiveness places you in direct opposition of Jesus’ instructions for living.

Do you believe that God is able to handle this? Can you accept that ultimately God is still in complete control? Do you have Faith in God? Faith works through love. Love is what purifies your desires and motives.

Jesus said, a new commandment have I given you, that you love one another. Dealing with grief involves dealing with the issues of our heart. I pray that you let the words of your mouth and the meditation of your heart be acceptable unto God. Where is your focus? Make Jesus your top priority.

Deal with your grief!

Please do not allow a root of bitterness to develop in you and choke the life out of you. Jesus came that you might have life and a more abundant life. Listen, I know it is Hard. But you are God’s beautiful people and you do have Help. God is your very present help in a time of trouble in a time of need.

Let me tell you, I, Rhonda called on the Lord in great distress and the Lord heard me and answered me. The Lord delivered me. The Lord strengthened me with strength deep in my soul. You must deal with grief in your soul. In your mind, your will, and your emotions.

And you can deal with grief victoriously. God has granted you life experiences that you can draw upon to help you. You have various strengths. Use your strengths. Yes, during a time of grief and sorrow we tend to think of how weak we are. How helpless we feel. But I want to admonish you to Surrender it all to God. Release every hurt, every frustration, every disappointment, release it all to Jesus.

How do you Release it?

First you must make a decision to trust, honor and respect God enough to put your case in His hands. It’s personal. It’s personal between you and God. You can talk to God and He will listen and hear you. I have found that when you speak his language (the Bible-the written Word of God) that he listens and responds.

God loves you so much, more than any words can say God loves you with an everlasting love. His love for you is beyond our ability to fully understand. For God so loved you that he gave His only Son for you to have eternal life. God wants you well and delivered from the hurt and sting of death. You are spiritual and you must deal with grief in your soul. Shift your thinking, shift your perspective. God has more for you than you can even imagine. The Lord wants to reveal more of Himself to you on a personal level. He wants to meet you right where you are now, and take you to deeper depths in Him and higher heights in Him.

Second, you must do your research. What does the Bible say about the situation? You don’t know—good that is Perfect. Read with your heart longing for God’s help. The Holy Spirit will lead you in the Word/Bible. It is so wonderful when He leads you to exactly what you need, even though you didn’t know it’s what you needed.

The living Word of God is powerful, and it is Alive. The Word of God is so sharp it can get down to the root of your grief. For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints, and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12 NIV)

Is it possible to look at your grief from a different lens. Can you see your grief from a God perspective? Can you embrace it as an opportunity for you to become more intimate with God. Will you allow the Lord to pour His love on you and in you and then move through you. Can you trust the Creator of the universe to create in you and to restore you, to build you up and give you joy that comes with strength.

I feel the power of the Holy Spirit moving on you, setting your free from deep hurt. Dipping you in the river of life, and giving you living waters, writing a new story about you. A story of renewing your fight, your strength, your healing, your joy. Building you up and giving you upgrade upon upgrade, victory upon victory. I can hear you singing a new song to the Lord. I can see you lifting your bowed head and glorifying God for your deliverance from the spirit of grief.

Let’s Go———————Let’s Release It

As you go through grief-don’t stay there. You are passing through it? Have you been praying about it? Yes. Great now is the time to trust that your prayers are answered. Now is the time for you to prophesy about it. To speak to the mountain and command it to Move. God has given you the power to speak life, deliverance, healing, increase, provision, and victory in your life.

You must release your prophetic declarations from your mouth filled with faith; faith in God; faith in what He has given you; Faith in what Jesus says about you, behold I have given you the power….Jesus said whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Lift up your voice and say, Grief—I Release your grip from my life. Declare that you are free in the wonderful name of Jesus Christ. This is my Testimony—this is how I am overcoming daily to the glory of God.

Shift Your Perspective to God’s Perspective and Prophesy Over Yourself

Speak it Boldly with Absolute Confidence in the Power of Jesus

  • I am strengthened with all might according to His glorious power. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Colossians 1: 11, Philippians 4: 13).
  • The same spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in me and also gives life to my body (Romans 8: 11).

  • The law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8: 2).
  • I am complete in Christ and the fullness of God dwells in me. All the treasures of wisdom and knowledge dwell in me through Christ Jesus (Colossians 2: 3, 9-10).
  • Wisdom in my heart is like water in a deep well, I am a person of understanding and I draw it out (Proverbs 20: 5 AMP).

Woman Who Are You!

  • I am strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. I draw my strength from Him, that strength which His boundless might provides (Ephesians 6: 10).
  • I am strengthened with all might according to His glorious power. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Colossians 1: 11, Philippians 4: 13).
  • The same spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in me and also gives life to my body (Romans 8: 11).
  • The law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8: 2).
  • I am complete in Christ and the fullness of God dwells in me. All the treasures of wisdom and knowledge dwell in me through Christ Jesus (Colossians 2: 3, 9-10).
  • Wisdom in my heart is like water in a deep well, I am a person of understanding and I draw it out (Proverbs 20: 5 AMP).
  • I have perfect knowledge of every circumstance and situation in life for the Spirit of Truth dwells in me (John 16: 13).
  • I am delivered from the power of darkness. I know the truth and the truth has set me free (Colossians 1: 13, John 8: 32).
  • Jesus said that whatever I bind on earth is bound in heaven and whatever I loose on earth is loosed in heaven. I now loose the blessings of God to flow into my life. I expect to be overtaken by goodness (Matthew 18: 18).
  • The Holy Spirit teaches me all things and brings all things to my memory. I know and remember who I am. I now use my words and my faith to manifest God’s highest and best for me! (John 14: 26). (
