Now is the time to abandon a life of worry, anxiety and fear, and launch into a life of faith, boldness and power!

Transcription

Carlie:
Did you know that fear can actually cause a pattern of unbelief? That’s right. Well, stay tuned and we’re going to show you how to break that pattern and live a life fearless in the promises of God.

Speaker 2:
Why live a normal life when you could be living the abundant life? Welcome to the Abundant Life program with Ashley and Carlie Terradez.

Ashley:
Hello, and welcome to Abundant Life. We’re so glad you’re with us today. Welcome, praise God. We’ve got a great show for you today. We’re talking about how to live fearlessly. Amen. God has not given you a spirit of fear. He has given you a spirit of a sound mind and of love. And what else?

Carlie:
Power.

Ashley:
Power. That’s right. I missed out power on that one.

Carlie:
Power, love, and a sound mind.

Ashley:
Because you can tell these are not scripted. Praise God. We just go for it here, praise God, in Abundant Life. But we’re so excited because we’re sharing with you these truths that are really helping people live out the abundant lives. Praise God. We’re empowering. We believe our ministry is called to empower believers in the promises of God.

Carlie:
Amen.

Ashley:
And one way of doing that is showing you practically how to overcome some of these things and really what we’re sharing on Abundant Life. We’ll just be honest. Let’s just be honest with the audience a moment. What we’re sharing in abundant life is-

Carlie:
I always get worried when you say that, like, “What’s going to come out your mouth next?”

Ashley:
You never know.

Carlie:
You never know.

Ashley:
What we’re doing on these programs is we’re sharing with you our mistakes basically of what we’ve done and been through so that you don’t have to go through the same mistakes basically. Everything we’re teaching, basically, we’ve lived and we’ve got stories to tell because we don’t do everything perfectly and we’ve not arrived. Praise God. But we feel like we’ve left in these areas. God has shown us some things and we’re able to share those things. So we get a buzz at sharing those things with you. And we get testimonies from around the world of people receiving these truths, is the word of God.

Ashley:
It’s the word of God we’re sharing. And we get testimonies of people taking on these teachings, taking these promises, and living them out. And it’s amazing how people’s lives can be changed. The word of God will change your life. Praise God. In this series, we’re talking about how to live fearlessly. And I love the acronym, fear, false evidence appearing real.

Ashley:
And we’ve been looking at lots of different things involving how to overcome fear and how to not let fear dictate you, not let fear call the shots in your life. Live your life by faith. If you live your life by fear, it’s going to hinder you, it’s going to withhold you. In fact, it can even be called torment, fear can because to torment. Whereas faith is all about increase. Faith is all about going for it. Faith is all about expanding and about advanced. Praise God.

Carlie:
It’s about accessing the promises of God every year of our life. Amen.

Ashley:
Amen. Accessing the promises of God is powerful.

Carlie:
Amen. So we’ve covered a lot of ground. This is actually the last part of our series on covering fear and how to live fearlessly. We started at the beginning of the series way back talking about a definition of fearless and what it means to live a fearless life. That the word fearless means to be without fear.

Ashley:
Yes. Fear less-

Carlie:
I know, right?

Ashley:
… means fearless.

Carlie:
But to be bold, to be intrepid, to be fully of courage, to be courageous. And that is the kind of life that God has called us to. And we can have confidence and live that kind of life when we really understand what it is that He’s done for us and the power that lives on the inside of us and the precious promises that God has for us. We can live that kind of life when we are confident and secure as our position in Christ.

Carlie:
We’ve talked about how fear is based in insecurity and how insecurity is important to overcome because out of understanding our identity comes out authority, which is how we actually crush and overpower the lies and the power of the enemy in our life. And so this has been a journey that we’ve been on. We’ve hope you’ve been able to join us for all of our programs. But if you’re just joining us today for this final part, I would encourage you to go back and watch the rest.

Carlie:
Today, we’re going to be going through, as Ashley was saying, some practical things about to how to break the pattern of fear. If you’ve recognized that fear is operating in life in a certain degree or in a particular area, we have good news for you, we have the antidote and we’re going to go through today on the antidote to fear and how to overcome it. Amen.

Ashley:
Amen.

Carlie:
So let’s jump right in here. We’re going to look at the pattern. Fear it’s formed by a pattern of unbelief. Fear and unbelief are closely connected. We’ve talked about how fear unchecked causes unbelief, and unbelief is something that hindered Jesus performing miracles, it will hinder us from accessing everything that God has for us. So we don’t want to live with unbelief in our life, and we don’t want to tolerate fear in any area because it’s not going to lead to good things as you saying, it’s going to lead to torment.

Ashley:
Amen. If someone’s just tuned in watching. So you just made a big statement that you said that unbelief and fear hindered Jesus performing miracles. And I just feel like we need to just explain that real quickly in case this is the only program you’ve watched. But that this is an account where Jesus took the blind man out to the city and there was unbelief. And He said, because of their unbelief, He could do a few mighty works there.

Ashley:
And basically what’s happening is, when we’re not believing God needs our cooperation, He’s given us free will. And He needs our corporation to be able to perform miracles and to heal and to save and things like that. So what was happening was is, is their unbelief stopped Jesus doing mighty work, stopped the power of God flowing. So that’s how important it is to deal with this fear and this unbelief, because it will actually hinder the power of God in your life.

Ashley:
Jesus was unable to do many mighty works in that city because of their unbelief. Not because He wasn’t able, God is always able to, in fact, even more than that, God’s already provided. God’s already provided everything we need, but if we’re not believing it, if we’re not receiving that, if we’re not accepting that, we’re not going to receive it, we’re not going to live it out.

Carlie:
For sure, for sure. Okay. Let’s look here in Hebrews, we’re in Hebrews chapter four, verse 11, it says, “Let us labor, therefore, to enter that rest, lest anyone fall by the same pattern of unbelief. For the word of God is alive and active and sharper than any two edged sword piercing even to the division of soul and spirit of joints and marrow and able to judge the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

Carlie:
You see if we don’t keep a check on fear, if we don’t learn to recognize it and to eradicate it, it’s going to form a pattern of unbelief. We don’t want to be stuck in that pattern. So let’s look here Ashley. We’ve got some things here that like you were saying that we’ve lived right. That we’ve lived through and we haven’t got this nailed down, but we’ve learned a few things and I think they’re going to be a blessing to people. Amen.

Ashley:
Amen.

Carlie:
So the number one thing I’ve gotten here is believe right. Belief for good. It’s a choice. Once we’ve recognized that we have fear operating in our life in an area and wherever the root might be, it could be from a traumatic experience. It could just be from a past negative experience in some way, it could just be that we believed a lie. Some fear and will often to a degree based on lies ultimately. We use the acronym, false evidence appearing real.

Carlie:
But what fear does is it takes a lie and it makes it bigger and bigger and bigger until it changes our whole perception of things. It interferes with the way that we’re thinking, if we interfere with the way that we’re thinking, the way that we’re speaking, the way that we’re acting, and the way that we respond to situations and relationships and people around us.

Ashley:
Yeah. And it’s a choice.

Carlie:
It’s a choice.

Ashley:
Jesus said, “Do not fear.” Many times throughout the gospels, He told various people, the man with the epileptic son, He told the disciples several times, He told you Joris. So do not fear. And if Jesus is telling us not to fear, that means we have the ability not to fear. We have the choice to not fear. I’m thinking of Deuteronomy 30. Deuteronomy 30, God says, “I’ve put before you life-

Carlie:
Set before you life and death.

Ashley:
… and death. Choose life.” This is something we have to choose. We have to choose to not fear. And someone said, “Ashley, how can you choose not to fear?” Well, it starts by believing right. It starts by believing the truth about who you are in Christ and about who Christ is in you. Praise God.

Carlie:
And we’re talking here about breaking a pattern. It’s that breaking a habit. If you’ve lived a life where fear has been a big part of it, you’ll have developed habits, responses that are fear based that are so normal to you that you wouldn’t necessarily even realize that you’re doing them. And I think Ashley, it’s like breaking any habit. We need to first recognize what we’re doing. One of those indicators actually is our speech. If I let people talk to me for long enough, I can usually detect what they’re believing.

Ashley:
The abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.

Carlie:
Exactly.

Ashley:
So what happens in the end is we end up what we say the most is usually our predominant thought. And then whatever we believe will come out eventually.

Carlie:
Right. Right. I like what it says here in, this is in Psalm 27, verses 13 and 14. It says, “I believe, I believe.” This is really important. We need to choose to believe what the word of God says about a situation. And it’s not based on, we’ve talked about this, but it’s not based on what it looks like or what it feels like. We’re talking here about operating by faith, putting a trusting confidence in what the word of God says, rather than what our body is telling us, what the doctor is telling us, or the circumstances are telling us, what it looks like in the natural realm.

Carlie:
We’re operating here in a faith realm, choosing to believe what the word of God says about us. It says, “I believe I will see the goodness of God in the land of the living.” God is a good God. When we start to put trust in the word of God, in other words, we’re saying, “I trust the word of God above my circumstances.” We will start to see the goodness of God all around us. We will start to see good things in places where all before we saw negative things. So one of the characteristics of a fear is negativity. And it’s hard to be around people that are negative, isn’t it?

Ashley:
Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Carlie:
But people that are positive, you could be around them all day. And the importance of this is crucial. We’ve looked in a previous episode about difference between having a victim mentality and having a victor mentality. When we choose to believe the word of God, we choose to believe that God ultimately is good and that He has good and precious promises for us. That He’s a good, good father. He’s going to take care of us in every area, financially, emotionally, spiritually, physically.

Carlie:
We’re trusting in His goodness. It says, “I believe I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord and be strong. And may your heart be stout and wait on the Lord.”

Ashley:
Stout?

Carlie:
Stout.

Ashley:
It’s a modern English version.

Carlie:
That’s another word for courage here. But I’m going to break this down a little bit. And in the New King James, it says, “I would have lost heart unless I had believed that I’d see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord, be of good courage.” Okay. So stout and courage, the same thing. “And he will strengthen your heart.” One way to strengthen our heart against fear here is to do these things. Believe, choose to believe, choose to believe, and then wait on the Lord.

Carlie:
This bothered me for a while because I was thinking, “Oh man, I’ve got to wait for God to do something. Maybe like I’m waiting for a bus to come.” Or it’s kind of like will it show up or won’t it? It seems like it’s undecided almost.

Ashley:
You’re just waiting and maybe it’ll happen.

Carlie:
Yeah. But when we were operating in faith, that’s not what this means. The word wait, it means more than just hanging around for something to happen. Okay. It’s to look expectantly, to be hopeful and to be eagerly waiting and to believe the best. Man, that’s powerful, isn’t it? It means to look with expectancy so we can put our faith … One of the keys to overcoming and breaking down this pattern of unbelief is choosing to believe the word of God and to look with expectancy.

Carlie:
To look for the goodness of God, to look for it, to have a positive expectation. The word courage it means be of good courage. This is powerful. It means to be constant, firm footed, steadfast, and immovable.

Ashley:
To be decided and don’t just be put off by the smallest challenge or something that comes against it. Is that this is what I believe. This is God’s nature. This is the truth. And even though my circumstances don’t look like at the moment, I’m going to be steadfast on the word of God.

Carlie:
Yeah. And we’ve experienced moments in our life like this where we’ve had to choose to believe the word of God above our circumstances and not be moved from it. And actually to keep the word of God in front of our eyes. Could you bring up Joshua 1:8 for me?

Ashley:
Great verse.

Carlie:
Because I think this perfectly-

Ashley:
Excellent choice.

Carlie:
Excellent choice.

Ashley:
Some may say. Joshua 1:8, the classic there, in fact, Joshua, the whole first chapter of Joshua is really powerful. But Joshua 1:8 says, “This book of the law,” we can replace book of the law with the-

Carlie:
The gospel.

Ashley:
… word of God. Yeah. The word of God, the promises of God, the word of God. “This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth.” It’s interest is, do not depart from your mouth. Again, talking about speaking, not just believing, but also speaking it, “But you shall meditate in it day and night,” meditate in the word day and night. And we can meditate. God has given us the ability to meditate on the goodness of God. He’s given us the ability to meditate on His word.

Ashley:
Because if you think about it, you’re able to worry. You’re able to worry and operate your normal daily routine. You can have another track in your mind, if you like, playing worry, worried about an unpaid bill or worried about a family member or worried about the situation, you can worry whilst you’re doing your everyday activities with that part of your brain, that part of your mind, that part of your soul, if you like, that you use to worry, we’re meant to use to meditate on the goodness of God.

Ashley:
So we’re meant to meditation. It doesn’t have to be some people get intimidated by meditating and they think it’s going to have to be like-

Carlie:
You got to sit cross legged on the floor in a yoga position.

Ashley:
No, that’s just the weird, that’s just-

Carlie:
No, that kind of meditation.

Ashley:
That’s the Eastern meditation.

Carlie:
Right. We’re not talking about that.

Ashley:
I’m talking about meditating on the word. But when we meditate on the word, it doesn’t have to be like tons of scripture or anything. It can just be one truth in the word. And you take that truth and the Holy Spirit will start showing you this. You take that one truth and just to start keep thinking about it, “Man, this is good.” And you start thinking, keep thinking about that one truth and keep mining that over in your mind. And utter it. Meditation means to utter it. So, you meditate.

Carlie:
The word meditate actually means to speak, study, utter or roar it like a lion.

Ashley:
You like the roar it like a lion.

Carlie:
I like the roar it like a lion. So, in other words, if we take the word of God and we keep it before us. And when you’re going through a challenge, when fear is really big on the inside of you, this is even more important to do this. One way that I found was really powerful actually was to write them out and write scriptures out, find scriptures in the word of God. I’m choosing to stand on this. I’m choosing to believe this above my circumstances. And one scripture that I’ve stood on before. Psalms 107 verse 20. “He sent His word and healed them.”

Ashley:
Amen.

Carlie:
Amen. He sent his word and healed them. So, take the word of God, write it out, keep it before my eyes and then to speak it, to study it, and then utter it and roar it like a lion, to declare the word of God over my life.

Ashley:
Yeah. We’ve had situations where I remember one time we was living in London and we had some challenges. And we bought a bunch of post it notes-

Carlie:
We had sticking notes.

Ashley:
… and we wrote out scriptures and stuck those sticky notes-

Carlie:
Everywhere. All over the flat.

Ashley:
All over the apartment. And every time we opened the fridge, there was three or four sticky notes with these verses on we’d look at it. Every time we brushed our teeth, these sticky notes are there.

Carlie:
We were brainwashing ourselves with the truth.

Ashley:
Yeah. That’s what we’re doing, keeping the word of God before our eyes. So, meditate on it day and night. Back to Joshua 1:8, “Meditate on it day and night that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it.” God’s word is good for us. And He gives us instructions. We’re not doing things to make it happen. God’s already done it. He’s already provided for us. But we observed to do what the word says. We observe to do what God tells us to do so that we can appropriate the things that he’s already provided for us. Observe, do all the coding that is written in it, “For then,” listen to this is. This is this. “For then,” once you do these things-

Carlie:
There’s consequence to doing those things.

Ashley:
There’s a consequence, then you will make your way prosperous and then you’ll have good success. Now am I saying that if you do these things, then God’s going to bless you? No. God’s already blessed us. God’s already provided for us. God’s already given us everything. Every precious promise is yes and amen is already ours. This is the way we actually see it come about in our life. This is the way we actually see these promises. The promise of provision, this is how we see it manifest. The promise of healing, this is how we see our body physically healed.

Ashley:
We have it already in the spirit realm. When we got born again, we become just like Jesus on the inside, we can one spirit of the Lord. As Jesus is, so are we in this world. First, John 4:17. So we have this spirit, Colossians two, eight and nine says we’re complete in Him. So we already have this. The question is, are we releasing it into our soul? Are we seeing it in our everyday life? And this is the formula, if you like, hate to say the word formula, but it’s like a formula.

Carlie:
Keep an understanding.

Ashley:
Yeah. Like a formula to how we can see the promises of God that we already have coming back in our life. Praise God. And right here, this is a great thing. The verse before that, I won’t read the whole verse. But the verse before that, Joshua is commanded here, the Lord commands Joshua, do not be afraid, have courage. And we’re talking about fear in this series. We’re talking about, do not let fear in it.

Ashley:
It’s our responsibility to not be afraid and to choose to know any thoughts of fear that come in to choose to reject those thoughts, to choose to replace those thoughts with thoughts of faith instead.

Carlie:
Amen. And it’s really significant. Actually there’s a few times in that chapter, Joshua one that the Lord says to Joshua, “Do not be afraid,” do not tolerate fear, do not live with fear. Do not settle with fear. Only be very courageous. Remember that word courageous is courage. It means to be constant, to be firm footy, to be immovable. Immovable in what? Immovable in the word of God. Immovable in what He says.

Carlie:
If we’re immovable in the word of God in our life, and we commit to speaking it, studying it, uttering it, roaring it like a lion over our situation, fear will not have a choice. It will have to leave. And we will start to break down that pattern of unbelief. So maybe you found yourself in habitual cycles of speaking out feelings, speaking out negative feelings, negative emotions, negative confessions. One thing that I did that really helped me to recognize this, this is … I used to be very sarcastic. I used to have … I did.

Ashley:
I remember.

Carlie:
Don’t be sarcastic now.

Ashley:
I remember.

Carlie:
I used to be very sarcastic and I really didn’t like that quality about me because I just didn’t like it.

Ashley:
The lowest form of weak.

Carlie:
I just didn’t like it. And I wanted to break it, but I didn’t realize it had become a habit. And the Lord showed me this and I don’t know if anyone else has ever done this and they probably have, but this is how the Lord told me, to break a habit, you needs to have a change of actions. And so, I actually put a rubber band. This sounds a bit barbaric. I put a rubber band on my wrist and every time I caught myself being sarcastic, I just ping it on the inside, and I’m like, “Ouch, that [tunged 00:18:27],” because it’s kind of sensitive right here. But you know what that did for me that really broke a habit. I’m like, I didn’t want to do that anymore.

Ashley:
I love how we’re teaching this. We teach the grace of God and we teach the promises of God, but-

Carlie:
But beat yourself with a stick.

Ashley:
Beat yourself with a rubber band.

Carlie:
But there is a way to break a habit, this is what I’m saying. And when we have a pattern of unbelief, we formed a habit. And sometimes we can find ourselves speaking out those words of unbelief, those things that aren’t based on the word of God. And we don’t even realize that we’re doing it unless somebody around us says, “Do you realize that you’re so negative? Do you realize that you’re so toxic basically?” And not all of us have friends around us that are-

Ashley:
Good enough to do that too.

Carlie:
… good enough to do that.

Ashley:
We had a couple of people living with us once. And one was a young man who’s a friend of ours. Their son came to live with us, so he could go to Bible school. And the other person was an older lady, an elderly lady who was actually a nanny for our children. So at this very young guy, he’s probably 17 and then like a 70 year old in our house. And I remember they were both speaking at the same time basically.

Ashley:
She was speaking out all this fear and unbelief about her health. And just saying, “This is going to happen to me. That’s going to happen to me. I know this always happens to me,” and speaking out all these sickness and unbelief about her health and the healing and stuff, and just toxic stuff about how she was going to get sick and everything else, and even speaking on the kid. “Don’t do that. You’ll get sick. And this will happen to you.”

Ashley:
And then the 17 year old boy was going, “I’ve got no money. I’m not going to be able to afford it. I’m not going to be able to pay for this. It’s so hard to get a job now and it’s impossible to ahead.”

Carlie:
“I don’t have enough.”

Ashley:
“I don’t have enough.” And in the end I stopped and drummed it together. I said, “Hey, hey, listen.”

Carlie:
You actually were driving. He pulled the car over and said, “I’m done with this.”

Ashley:
I parked the car. I packed the car. I pulled up the cars, “Listen.” I said, “You’re living in my house.” I said, “In my house, we don’t see speak sickness and we don’t speak poverty.” I said, “You may be sick in your body, we’ll pray for you. And we’re going to believe the best for you. You may have a lack in your finances. We’re going to pray for you and believe the best for you, but we’re not going to constantly speak out lack and constantly speak out. Basically, we’re not going to keep giving voice to the problem. We’re going to give voice to the solution, praise God, rather than the problem.

Ashley:
And the more we voice, whatever we focus on, wherever we magnify, gets bigger. Whatever we focus on gets magnified, gets bigger. And I don’t care what’s going on. I’m not going to focus and magnify the problem. I’m going to focus and magnify the solution.” Anyway, they took my advice. It wasn’t really advice. It was a command because they were living in my house. Basically you can either believe in my house-

Carlie:
Or you can move out. Get happier or move out.

Ashley:
I was more [aberratious 00:20:53] than that. But anyway, I was pretty serious about we’re not going to do this. And their circumstances changed. Within a few months, I’m telling you, their circumstances changed. And it’s amazing how they started to see the promises of God. They both believed in and they both loved the word and stuff and they saw the promises of God come about. But it’s important to check what are we believing? What are we allowing in?

Ashley:
We can’t just allow all this fear in our life. This is what this series has been about. If we allow fear in and if we focus on that and if we give fear of a voice, then it can be powerful and can hinder us receiving the promises.

Carlie:
And there are many different ways that fear can enter into our life and enter into our thinking, our heart. And I was actually saying, if you’re not careful, it’s going to start coming out in a confession. We need to be careful what we’re listening to. We need to be careful what we’re watching. If you’re one of those people that watches the news every day and every day you get mad watching the news and you’re jumping up and down shouting and getting angry. And you’re getting frustrated, then turn it off.

Carlie:
It’s not good for you. Now, I’m not saying you need to be cut off of the world, but if you’re watching something and it’s not producing good fruit in you, and it’s actually creating anxiety or stress, then don’t do that anymore. There are some simple things that we can do. Listen to who and be careful what we listen to. Even Christian music can have negativity in it.

Ashley:
Oh yeah. Christian music. There’s some Christian music out there.

Carlie:
Things that aren’t scripture just because they have a good thing. You don’t let it get in your head. Be careful.

Ashley:
I’ll tell you what. [crosstalk 00:22:14] to turn over the radio and listen to secular music, heathen music.

Carlie:
At least you know it.

Ashley:
[crosstalk 00:22:17] the Christian stuff is like-

Carlie:
It’s not going to mess you up.

Ashley:
… “God’s going to do this to you and God’s going to do.” No. God doesn’t put sickness on you to teach you something. God doesn’t do these things. And some of these Christian music, they’re just but negative confession. Is bad. Jesus said, “Be careful how you hear.”

Carlie:
That’s right. Be careful how you hear.

Ashley:
Be careful how you hear.

Carlie:
And you’re the only believer in your family. And you’re surrounded by people that are just … they don’t know the Lord, or maybe you’re in a church with people that really aren’t positive. And don’t really speak the word of God. We can still encourage ourselves. David had to do this in the Psalms. He said, “Bless the Lord. All my soul and all that is within me.” Feed yourself. Even online. You’re watching the Abundant Life program here.

Carlie:
We’re hoping to encourage you and empower you in the promises of God. There’s so much good teaching. There’s so many good things, but it takes a discipline to seek those out. I want to read this Psalm here and leave you with this. And this is David who, by the way, he’d been through a lot. And there’s a lot of wisdom in the Psalms. He says, “I will bless the Lord at all times.” Not just when I feel like it, at all times, “His praise will be continually in my mouth.”

Carlie:
Praise Him when you don’t feel like it, especially, is powerful. Praise Him when you feel full of fear, praise Him when you don’t know how to make a decision, praise and worship, it invites the power of God into our situations. It’s powerful.

Ashley:
Yeah. And when we’re praising Him in times like that, it’s not that we’re faking it or anything-

Carlie:
We’re not.

Ashley:
… because God is always worthy of praise. God is always good. Regardless of our situation, we can always find something to be thankful for.

Carlie:
But we are choosing to take control of our thinking in that. “My soul will make its boast in the Lord. The humble will hear of it and be glad. Oh, magnify the Lord with me. Let us exalt His name together. I sought the Lord and He answered me and delivered me from all of my fears.” I just believe if you’re looking for deliverance from fear today, you’ve come to the end of this series on living fearless, being a fearless believer, being bold and very courageous.

Carlie:
If you haven’t yet, the point in this course, I ask the Lord to deliver you from your fears, that deliverance is available right here, right now in this moment. You can say, I’m going to say a real brief prayer. And I want you to repeat after me and believe this in your heart. And I’m believing that you’re going to be delivered from fear. Amen. But even after that, there’s a process of mind renewal, which is your part.

Carlie:
The deliverance is easy. That’s the Lord’s part. He’s provided that for you, but making sure that old pattern of thinking doesn’t creep back in, that’s our part. That’s how we start to break those habits and renew our mind to the truth of God’s word so that we don’t invite those things back in again. Amen.

Ashley:
Amen. That Romans 12:2. Do not be conformed to this world. Don’t be conformed to the fear, but renew your mind, be transformed by the renewing of our mind.

Carlie:
Amen. Let’s pray for the people, Ashley.

Ashley:
Amen.

Carlie:
I feel like we’re going to take some authority here.

Ashley:
Amen. Go ahead.

Carlie:
Father God, I just thank you that you have called us to live a life that’s free from fear, that we don’t have to live in fear a moment longer. And right now, we invite you to come on into our hearts. We receive your deliverance, Jesus. We will bless you. Let the words of our mouth and the confession of our tongue bring glory to you. Lord, we repent for all of those words where we have spoken out fear. We speak a [crop 00:25:30] failure, that those words that we’ve spoken to have been negative that have been full of fear, we speak to them to be uprooted right now in Jesus name.

Carlie:
And we just agree Lord, with your word, we magnify your word Lord and your truth above all of our fear, above all of the negativity, above our past experience, above the reports that are coming against us. About our emotions. We take captive our thoughts in Jesus name, and we bring them, we subject them to your word Lord. And right now, we declare that your perfect love to be casting out fear in Jesus name. Amen. Be free from all fear in the name of Jesus. That’s for you today, you can live a life free from fear and be bold and very courageous. Amen.

Ashley:
Amen. That’s awesome.

Carlie:
Amen.

Ashley:
Praise God. That’s awesome. Well, thank you so much for being with us. We’ll be back real soon. And just like Carlie said, you have got everything you need to live a fearless life. Praise God.

Carlie:
Amen.

Ashley:
In fact, you’ve got everything you need on the inside of you to live the abundant life. So don’t just settle for living a normal life. Live the abundant life. And we’ll see you real soon. So, we’re almost believing for our daughter Hannah’s healing. We loved God and we love the word of God, but because no one taught us the truth, we didn’t see that manifest until we understood the truth about healing.

Carlie:
Our whole family has been impacted by this understanding of what Jesus has already done. And so now we’re living life out of victory rather than living life out of fear.

Ashley:
And that’s why we’re so excited here at Terradez Ministries. We want people to be empowered, to walk in the promises of God.

Carlie:
