Mark 4:35-40 AMPC

“35 On that same day [when] evening had come, He said to them, Let us go over to the other side [of the lake].

36 And leaving the throng, they took Him with them, [just] as He was, in the boat [in which He was sitting]. And other boats were with Him.

37 And a furious storm of wind [of hurricane proportions] arose, and the waves kept beating into the boat, so that it was already becoming filled.

38 But He [Himself] was in the stern [of the boat], asleep on the [leather] cushion; and they awoke Him and said to Him, Master, do You not care that we are perishing?

39 And He arose and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, Hush now! Be still (muzzled)! And the wind ceased (sank to rest as if exhausted by its beating) and there was [immediately] a great calm (a perfect peacefulness).

40 He said to them, Why are you so timid and fearful? How is it that you have no faith (no firmly relying trust)?”

Romans 8:28 AMPC

“We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.”

Psalm 34:19 AMPC

“Many evils confront the [consistently] righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.”

John 16:33 AMPC

I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]”

Romans 8:37

“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”

Colossians 2:15 AMPC

“[God] disarmed the principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them in Him and in it [the cross].”

Psalm 34:6-10 NLT

“In my desperation I prayed, and the Lord listened; He saved me from all my troubles.   For the angel of the Lord is a guard; he surrounds and defends all who fear him.  Taste and see that the Lord is good.  Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!   Fear the Lord, you his godly people, for those who fear him will have all they need. . .and those who trust in the Lord will lack no good thing. “

First, you keep on tithing and giving offerings even when your mind says you can’t afford it.

Second, you refuse to let the devil steal your peace even when you have to go against your emotions and feelings.

Luke 13:10-11 AMPC

“Now Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath.  And there was a woman there who for eighteen years had had an infirmity caused by a spirit (a demon of sickness). She was ]bent completely forward and utterly unable to straighten herself up or to look upward.”

Luke 13:12 NLT

“When Jesus saw her, he called her over and said, ‘Dear woman, you are healed of your sickness!’ ”

Luke 13:13 AMPC

“Then He laid [His] hands on her, and instantly she was made straight, and she recognized and thanked and praised God.”

Third, keep claiming your healing even when the lying symptoms try to linger in your body.

James 5:15 KJV

“And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.”

Personalize the verse.

James 5:15

“And the prayer of faith shall save <<YourName>>, and the Lord shall raise <him/her> up; and if <YourName> has committed sins, they shall be forgiven <him/her> .”

Isaiah 53:5 AMPC Personalized.

“Surely He has borne <YourName>’s griefs (sicknesses) and carried <his/her> sorrows (pains); yet <YourName> esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for <YourName>’s transgressions, he was bruised for <his/her> iniquities; the chastisement for <his/her> peace was upon Him, and by His stripes <YourName> is healed.”

2 Peter 2:24 AMPC

“He personally bore <YourName>’s sins in His [own] body on the tree [as on an altar and offered Himself on it], that <YourName> might die (cease to exist) to sin and live to righteousness. By His wounds <YourName> have been healed.”

Fourth, don’t doubt God will more than meet your needs even when your bank account is in the red.

Psalm 84:11 AMPC Personalized

“For the Lord God is a Sun and Shield; the Lord bestows [present] grace and favor and [future] glory (honor, splendor, and heavenly bliss)! No good thing will He withhold from <<Your Name>> who walks uprightly.”

Fifth, keep believing your household will be saved even in the darkest hours and most trying days.

2 Peter 3:9

 “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

2 Peter 3:9 NIV

“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”

Sixth, keep claiming the promises of God for your life when it seems everything is falling apart.

Mark 9:23 GWT

Jesus said to him, "As far as possibilities go, everything is possible for the person who believes."

Hebrews 13:15-16

By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.  But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.”

Psalm 7:9 AMPC

“Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, but establish the [uncompromisingly] righteous [those upright and in harmony with You]; for You, Who try the hearts and emotions and thinking powers, are a righteous God.”

Seventh, you know that where you’re at is not where you’re going to stay … no matter how things look.

Proverbs 27:23

Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds.”

2 Samuel 12:2

“The rich man had exceeding many flocks and herds.” 

Genesis 24:35

“And the LORD hath blessed my master [Abraham] greatly; and he is become great: and he hath given him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold, and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses.”
