The victory for the believer in every area of our lives is connected to the mindset that we have. If we are carnally minded, it is death (Romans 8).  But if we are spiritually minded, it is life and peace. One mindset has no power for victory and leads us to death. The other mindset is not only life but is life producing and sustaining. To trust God for healing and the breakthroughs that we need can only be accomplished when we have a mindset that is kingdom-centered. I want to give several points to hopefully strengthen your faith so you can push forward with the mindset to win every battle that comes your way.

[1] Come Kingdom of God

In Matt. 6:10, Jesus tells his disciples that they need to pray “come Your kingdom, be done Your will.”  They had watched the strength of the ministry that Jesus had. Bodies healed, devils cast out, lame legs straightened, and so much more. They had watched how Jesus would head away to a private place and pray. They knew that the secret to the mighty power in His life had to be connected to how He had prayed. Prayer is vital, but prayer that has no authority can do nothing. They asked Jesus how to pray with authority, and He began to teach them.  The second part after praise was praying for the kingdom and the will of God to be manifested. This was the strength of His prayer. The kingdom of God is also the government of God being revealed. Jesus proved it in every area of His ministry. 

[2] Word

Psalm 103:1-5 states that God forgives all your iniquities, heals all your diseases, redeems your life from destruction, crowns you with His favor, and changes your confession. The word gives us everything present in the kingdom of God. There is no disease or sickness in God’s kingdom. When we pray for it to come into our lives, deliverance from all that is not a part of His kingdom can now be applied. Jesus stated in Mark 1:15, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has drawn near. Repent and believe in the gospel.” This message was the key to accessing the victory over sickness that God intended in His gospel. With the forgiveness of sin came the power to heal, deliver and set free your life. In Acts 3:19, Paul writes, “Repent and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.” What a great refreshing that can be had when we are freed from the power of sin and healed of all diseases that have afflicted and oppressed our lives. Healing is the children’s bread. (Mat. 15:26), and we have the right according to the word to access it.

[3] Our Confession

Paul wrote in 2 Cor. 4:13, “And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, ‘I believed and therefore I spoke.’ We also believe and therefore speak.” Confession of the word of God is paramount to the believer. Romans 10:8-10 states that the word is near you and in your mouth [The word of faith that we preach]. This is for all areas of your life. It goes on to say in verse 9, “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Belief and confession go hand in hand. Verse 17 states, “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” When we have a promise that belongs to us, we let the word get down deep onto our being until faith rises inside our spirit. When this happens, we can speak the word of faith, and then no matter what stands against us must submit to the word. Mark 11:22-23 says, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Our confession can only be effective when we have a promise from the word, and that can only happen when we meditate on the word until faith rises inside of us. This is what makes the confession of Paul so strong: “I believe therefore I speak. With the same spirit of faith.” So we also chase the same spirit of faith so that we can also speak.

Believers, the kingdom of God, and the will of God is what Jesus wanted us to pray for.  He stated in Mat. 16:18, “I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” You are the church of Jesus Christ. Hell may come at you with every sickness, disease, and sin. But Jesus has released the access to His Father’s kingdom that He operated by to you and I. With this in hand, we have every promise made sure, and we lack nothing to bring God’s kingdom down into our lives as we overthrow all the works of the enemy. The victory is truly ours. All we need to do is stand in the confession that the kingdom possesses and walk forward in the overcoming, healing power of God.
