Living From Your Spirit Identity-With Podcast #13
Can you really deal with and conquer your anxiety?
Yes, you can as you build on your spirit identity. Guess what? This is not something you work at but a shift into believing what God says about you! With this shift, comes the breaker anointing! Below is a guest video from my Kingdom shaker breaker anointed friend, Michael Edwards. I hope you can watch this!
So, I’ve been very persistent in asking God to help me walk this spirit identity out. I’ve had my struggles.
I woke up one morning fighting anxiety last week. I have been walking in great peace and joy lately so this was quite disturbing to me. Even though it was election Tuesday, I still could not quite pin point the source of the angst I felt. I thought maybe I was feeling it for my husband or a friend. Even though I know part of my prophetic gift deals heavily with what I feel in the atmosphere, I still could not shake it.
I was in a place where I could not process this with anyone as my husband was busy at work and a few friends were out of reach. I’m rather glad now that I had no one but the Holy Spirit to work through this. As I was processing with it, the Holy Spirit spoke this to me:
“You can push back the anxiety you feel by pressing into my Presence. The press comes as you shift your MIND and activate your Spirit to hear from ME. It’s a spirit-identity shift. You can ask Me for more….. what ever you need…healing, peace, finances, connections. I delight to take good care of My children.”
So I was asking Him for the shift to my spirit identity. I wrote out some declarations for myself based on Scripture.
I got up and went on a minor cleaning spurt. Even got on my knees to mop the floor of my laundry room. I just felt like maybe being busy cleaning (and pleasing my husband) might help me shake the heavy gorilla resting on my heart. (chuckle).
Finally I sat down and simply tried to enter His Presence. I had read a lot of the Word that morning so I pondered what I had read looking for a slight point of understanding to my anxiety. Soaking in the word is a great set up to hear His Voice.
As sure as the wind started to gently blow the leaves on the trees outside my window, I knew I could ask Holy Spirit for a word from the Vinedresser for me. So I went over the declarations I had written and started to write in the voice of my Lord, Friend, Comforter, The Vinedresser.
I am so thankful for the Holy Spirit. His Words break off the fear that wants to produce it’s bad fruit of anxiety.
You can do this too. Stay in the Word. Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit. See with your Spirit eyes, from your heart, not your physical side from your mind. God speaks to your Spirit-heart, not your mind. Take note of what stirs up negative emotions or forces by different places or situations. Instead of falling to a victim mentality, rise up seeing yourself carrying the very presence of God and emanating His love, peace, and favor everywhere you go. I believe this inward conscious walk will bring shifts in your atmosphere as you carry His Presence.
As you learn to walk this way, being more sensitive to your spirit, you begin to understand you are in Christ, living in a place of habitation. You are seated with Him at God’s right Hand. As you continue to abide in Him, you can experience a total overhaul of your identity of who you really are. You can remind yourself that God is in control. You have no need trying to manage other people. He is the Mediator!
One thing I do know for sure… NO greater shift happens in your spirit identity than receiving the gift of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. This is like driving a car and always having your gas tank full. The same power that raised Jesus from the dead is alive in you. You can experience a baptism with evidence of speaking in tongues that can be like a power surge in your Christian walk. It’s not all about the tongues but an infusion of walking in a Kingdom realm. (For reference see John 3:5; Matthew 3:11; Acts 1:4; Acts 2:4; Acts 19:1-6; Jude 1:20; Romans 8:26)
So ready? Let’s make a declaration. (If you want to experience the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, inbox me on my Facebook page).
Declaration: I can conquer anxiety because I am one with Him. He lives in me. I can live by the Spirit Wind in peace and confidence. I carry His breaker anointing.
