There’s Victory for You Now

Matthew 6:9-13.

“Give us this day our daily bread.” I want you to know, there is victory for you today, right now. But first here are some quotes and Scripture.

“Faith does not eliminate questions. But faith knows where to take them.” – Elizabeth Elliot

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength.” – Corrie Ten Boom

Psalm 16:11 – “Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”

To walk into the new, you have to leave the old. Isaiah 43:18-19. Ecclesiastes 5:18-20. The present moment is all that is really available to you and me. God is ready and willing to help you right now. There’s victory in your now.

Matthew 13:3-9. The seeds that fall on stony ground do not have strong, deep roots and will fall away at the first sign of persecution or trouble. Those choked by the thorns are the ones who get caught up in the cares of the world and forget the Word, possibly they have been hurt and their wounds hold them back . Some seeds fell on good ground and understood the Word and produced fruit.


Those that fell on stony ground didn’t have deep roots. When trees don’t have a good root system, it doesn’t take a whole lot to destroy them. It’s the same way for a Christian. That’s why it’s so important to keep praying even when no one’s watching. Keep holding onto God, kill lions and bears when no one’s watching. This helps build your root system and keep you strong in the Lord.

The Future

The seeds that fell on stony ground are people who are always worried about their future. The news media is full of stories that bring fear to the people who watch it. It’s everywhere and it’s caused people to fear the future. If you are battling fear of the future, serve notice on the devil. Let him know you understand that you can’t control the future or determine the future, but you are in the hand of the One who holds your future.

There’s nothing wrong with planning ahead for some things, but you are not living in next year or ten years from now. You are living right now and you can enjoy today. Psalm 118:24.

Let’s not let our best memories with God be from ten years ago. Let’s make the best memories with God today and then let’s make even better ones tomorrow. Sometimes we get so caught up in the past or the future that we don’t enjoy the now. 

The Past

We need to learn to let go of the past. We can’t change our past, but anything and everything back there is under the blood. Hurts and pain, those thorns, let them go! We need to move on with God and those things will do nothing but hold us back. I hear a voice calling, “Come up a little higher!” Do not stop living because you’re afraid you’ll get hurt again. 

Enjoy the NOW

There should not be a more special day than today. God wants to release you from the fear of the future and the wounds of the past. He wants you to come into the now. There is victory for you now, hope for you now. There is deliverance, peace, a new beginning, and strength for you now!

Pray and ask God to release you from the tug of yesterday and the pull of tomorrow, and ask to step back into your now. Pray that He give you this day’s daily bread. You can live now, laugh now, pray now, worship now! You can have peace and victory right now! There is victory in your now, dear friend!

A Blessing Or An Anointing

Let’s take a look at 2 churches: Saul’s church and David’s church.

1 Samuel 11:15. Saul’s church had just about everything that could be wanted naturally. They had a fancy building and money. Saul used to be a praying man. 1 Samuel 14:35. Later on, however, I don’t see him building an altar. Later on, we find him going to a witch. Instead of seeking God, he went to seek the things he used to try and destroy.

1 Samuel 15:26. I believe there are some ministries standing around the world today that have millions of followers who think everything is fine, but in reality, God has walked away. God walked away from Saul and no one knew but Samuel and David. 1 Samuel 28:6.

The Kingdom of God is going on. It will not stop if a man or woman in a leadership position sells out to the devil and won’t come back to God. God will have someone to replace them. The work of God will go on.

So, let’s talk about the second church.

Psalms 34:1. David’s church had a praise. Despite everything David went through and what he faced, he was going to bless the Lord at all times. Even when it looked like there was no way out of his hard situations, he was going to praise the Lord. David’s church was one full of worship. Psalms 95:6.

Psalms 20:7. David knew who his keeper was. Psalms 23:1. David knew who his provider was, who was going to give him peace, and who was going to protect him.

1 Samuel 16:12. David had a word from the Lord to hold onto right here. I would encourage you to pray for your personal word from the Lord. When the battle is raging, we need that word from God we can hold onto and wave in the devil’s face when he comes against us. “If God be for us, who can be against us?”

When David went out to face that giant, Goliath, He knew he wasn’t going to die. His word from the Lord had not been completed yet. He hadn’t sat on the throne as king yet. If you have a word from God, you will keep going. The Word of God will carry you through a desert, keep you in a storm, keep you through a battle, and make a way for you.

David had an anointing.

An anointing has nothing to do with emotions. There are a lot of ways to explain it, but here’s what the anointing is: the Spirit of God flowing through an individual. This individual needs to be a clean and willing vessel; one who is open for the Spirit of God to flow through.

There’s a lot of people that the Spirit of God flows into, but it never flows out of them. To them, it becomes a blessing and not and anointing. Anointing is something that will touch another. A blessing is something that will touch a person and then it will stop with that person.

David’s anointing started at his head, but it would flow out of him to touch a whole nation. It’s not enough to let the power of God bless you. Are you letting the anointing flow and touch anyone else?

When a person goes to church and they get free in the Spirit and start worshipping the Lord, it touches other people. How many services have been hindered because the anointing came to someone who decided to be a reservoir and locked it up instead of letting it flow? They made it a blessing for themselves rather than an anointing to flow to others.

What David has wasn’t just for him. He had something that would kill a giant and set a nation free. He had something that would lead a kingdom back to God. Saul led the people away from God, but David’s blessing was to become an anointing for Israel.

We shouldn’t let the anointing only be a blessing and stop with us. The anointing will break yolks and set the captive free. We should let it flow and touch other people!

Thank God for every blessing we’ve received! When people get around us, however, we need to let the anointing flow that it might touch them. When they walk away from us, they need to know they’ve been touched by the Holy Ghost power that flows through us.

Your anointing is never just for you.

If a person’s anointing fixed all their problems, they’d become an island all by themselves and they wouldn’t need anyone. A person’s anointing is to help someone else. Their anointing will work when they are lying in a rehab bed hardly able to move. It will work when they can’t talk. It’s not a person’s strength, talent, or charisma, but the anointing of God flowing through them that touches another person.

Jehovah Jireh, Almighty God our Provider lives inside of us. We need to let Him touch other people through us! The anointing will set the captive free, lift up hands that are hanging down, heal the sick, prophesy, and lift up Jesus.

This generation needs what you have, dear friend. They need that anointing of God to flow to them. Lift your hands and ask the Lord to stir the anointing in you, so that people might see the glory of God and be touched by His power and love!

Healing Pt. 2

Hello Beloved Reader! I’m Faith and thank you for visiting me today! Today we are continuing with PART TWO of this healing series.

When it comes to healing, there can be a lot of questions. If I haven’t covered a particular question that you would like an answer to, then please leave a comment and the Oasis Team will do our best to find a correct and suitable answer for you.

PART ONE of this series went over what healing is, two aspects of healing, that healing is Biblical, and a couple of questions on healing. PART TWO is going over a few more questions: Is it acceptable to go to doctors and physicians? What about healing for people with mental disorders? What about going to see a counselor or psychiatrist?

Let’s get started.

Some people do not go to doctors for the sake of making a religious point. Sad to say, but this has not helped the death toll from sickness to lower. That is not to say in some cases this shouldn’t be done, but it should not be done with the sole basis of making a point.

Jesus did not command people to stay away from doctors. After all, Luke (one of Jesus’ disciples) was a physician. Doctors can be very wise in their understanding of the human body and indeed can be used as instruments for God’s glory in that aspect. But they cannot be the only source of healing. Take the woman with the issue of blood in Luke 8:43. It could be said that no one could heal her because of their lack of knowledgeable breakthroughs during that time, but even still, that proves doctors do not know all. Even today there are incurable diseases and ailments that doctors cannot seem to heal. Therefore, we cannot and should never put full trust in doctors. They did not create the human body and they most certainly do not know all there is to know about it. However, there is One who can identify with having all knowledge and creating all creation.

That being said, doctors should be accepted as a second opinion if needed. God can and will heal a person, but who knows? Maybe there is a doctor, a nurse, or even another patient that needs to be witnessed to. It might take going to the hospital to do that. So, a person should take their need to God first, seeking Him for His guidance in what should be done.

To heal means to become healthy again, but it also means to become sound again.

Now, “sound” can mean without disease, but it also means solid, stable, and showing good judgment and sense. This could represent the healing for mental states that are not sound such as mental disorders, depression, anxiety, and broken hearts. (Psalms 147:3 | Psalms 34:18) Healing for these things goes much deeper for with this healing comes a great change in a person’s life, not just outwardly, but inwardly as well. It changes a person’s mental state, in turn changing their physical actions.

Is it alright to go to psychiatrists and counselors?

God is the ultimate standard here. A person should never receive help like this from a human before they consider God and His counsel first. (Proverbs 19:21) There are many places in Proverbs where it speaks of having counselors and wise advice. It’s not a sin to receive counsel. It’s not a sin to ask for help. However, God is, again, the ultimate standard. With everything that is heard, with every word of advice received, it would be best to seek the counsel of the Lord for truth to those statements. Understand that those who give counsel should be dealing with the Lord first as well. Their words should stand with God and never against Him if a person is to get true help from them.

These healing blogs may be technical and frank, but I will state this: God is love. He has only the best interests in mind and will never try to destroy His people. Healing is in His will. His children need not fear sickness and disease.

Use Me in This Season

What do seasons mean spiritually?

Seasons change; the same season doesn’t last forever. Don’t make permanent decisions in  temporary circumstances. If your in the middle of Winter, don’t worry, things will get better and the sun will shine again. When we go through rough seasons in our lives, it should remind us more and more that this is not our home. John 16:33.


Spring is the time of new beginnings. The time of year where things enter a state of renewal. Dormant plants that have laid all Winter long rise up again. Leaves grow back on the trees. In our walk with Jesus, Springtime means fresh visions and new dreams. If you are going through a rough season, you can be confident in God’s faithfulness and know that at some point this season will end and a new one will begin. God will move and turn things around.


Summer is a season that warms us. The days are longer and the nights aren’t cold. Spring and Summer are also seasons where you can plant crops. You can even gain some harvest in Summer.


The weather starts to chill, the remainder of the harvest is gathered, and things start to prepare for the the next season.


This is a time where most of the natural world goes into hibernation. Activities seem to come to a stand-still. It’s a time to review your dreams and make new plans. It’s a time to rest. I believe Peter was talking about a Winter season in this passage 1 Peter 1:6.

With a church full of people, you will most likely find someone going through spring and someone going through winter.

People can be in different places in different seasons. Someone could be going through Spring, like the children of Israel who were coming out of the Red Sea. Some people may be facing their Winter season, like the ones going into the Red Sea. They may not know what will happen in the next little bit, but if they will keep on walking, they’ll walk right out of their situation. Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning. Keep walking and God will bring this season to pass.

Now, if you go outside to plant crops in the Winter, they probably won’t grow because it’s not the right season. But understand, God inside of us performs miracles and the the Holy Ghost doesn’t have seasons. We may be subject to seasons, but the Holy Ghost is not.

God doesn’t just want to use you in your Spring or Summer season. He wants to use you in every season.

As a child of God, there is no time off. We are too close to eternity. God can use you to help deliver someone when you are fighting depression. God can use you to lay hands on people and they get healed, when doctors have given up on you. God can use you to speak prosperity to someone when you can’t pay your own bills. It’s not about our feelings or emotions, but the presence of an eternal God that abides in us. God can use us when we are broken to help someone else.

It should be our desire that in whatever season we are in to be willing to let the Lord use us and be a part of whatever He is doing.

David had his seasons.

Around about the time he was taking care of his father’s sheep was his Spring season. He went through Summer when he was anointed king and faced Goliath. Right between being anointed king and killing Goliath, David had a Winter season.

During your winter seasons, don’t let the devil talk you into the thought that Jesus is mad at you. Seasons are a sign that you are chosen by God. David was anointed to be the ruler of the land, but at some point before that he was hiding in a cave.

A person may want to cross their arms in the Winter season and want to feel sorry for themselves and depressed. They may not want God to use them. But while you are in your Winter season, other people are in their Winter season, too. 1 Samuel 22:2. Sometimes you have to get up so other people won’t miss out with God. They need you to get up in your Winter season and keep on living right even if you don’t feel like it. God is still God. He abides in you and is not subject to seasons.

We shouldn’t operate by chill bumps, or emotions. We should be led by the Spirit of God, and directed by the Word of God.

Elijah went through his seasons.

In his Spring season, his prayers held the rain back. He helped a little widow woman not run out of food during the famine. But even this man of God has his Winter season, 1 Kings 19:4.

Joseph had his Winter season in prison.

But even then, he interpreted dreams for at least two prisoners. The anointing was not controlled by the bars he was behind or the shackles he was bound with. His anointing was inside of him and he let the Lord move through him and use him in the midst of his Winter season. Joseph’s dream from earlier in his life was on hold. Yet he showed his integrity when he submitted himself to God during that time to help fulfill someone else’s dream.

Jesus had His seasons.

In His Spring season, He was in the temple at 12 years-old, amazing those there with His words. In His Winter season, He’s on the cross. He looked around and there were two men on each side of Him that were about to die as lost as they could be. In His Winter season, Jesus changed a life and told one of the men He would be with Jesus in Paradise. Hallelujah!

1 John 4:4.

Remember, Friend, Jesus lives inside you. Your circumstances, your season, does not have control over your anointing. Jesus can use you in every situation and season. Make it your prayer, dear friend, “Lord, whatever you’re doing in this season, please don’t do it without me!”

Healing Pt. 1

Hello, Beloved Reader! I’m Faith and thank you for visiting me today!

This is PART ONE of a series on healing. When you finish reading this blog, if you have any questions on healing, feel free to leave a comment and the Oasis Team will do our best to find a correct and suitable answer for you.

I like to get down to the nitty-gritty details of things so let’s define the word ‘heal’ before we begin.

Heal – become sound or healthy again

First, I will express there are two aspects of healing: natural and spiritual. The spiritual can manifest itself through the evidence of a miracle (such as a cancer-ridden body becoming cancer free in one night). We will touch on the spiritual aspect later.

I would like to talk about the natural aspect of healing for a moment. Parts of the natural healing process happen every day. Say you cut your finger while peeling potatoes for family dinner. Immediately, the healing process begins. Blood seeps out, eventually beginning to clot via platelets and a scab is formed when the clot hardens. Under the scab, the body begins repairing the skin that has been opened and when the scab falls off a new layer of skin is exposed, healthy, healed. This process and other variants of it happen all day every day.

Nature has its own way of dealing with disease and wounds. Yet, we cannot rely on nature in some cases because it can take too long to heal or even never heal at all due to weakness, lack of proper nutrients, complications, and time. Cancer can be an example here.

That being said, there is a spiritual aspect to healing as well. This can be further broken down into two aspects: a spiritually physical healing and a spiritually mental healing.

As a church of Biblical believers, MDT Church/Oasis Ministries/Anthony Wynn Ministries does believe in this spiritual aspect to healing. Why?

Well, for one, healing is Biblical. You can find this in quite a few Scripture passages. (Luke 5:15 | Acts 3:1-8 to list a couple) This concept of healing being Biblical can be proved with the Bible in three verses. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 | 3 John 1:2. As you can see through these two passages, it is the Lord’s will that we be in good health. If a person is sick, then there is even a Bible verse that gives them the right to claim healing for themselves. (Isaiah 53:5)

So, why don’t we see it very often?

That’s our problem. Yes, quite literally, we as a people hinder the almighty, powerful God from doing His great work in us and for us. How do we hinder Him? Through our unbelief. (Matthew 13:58) It is not that God is limited, for nothing is impossible with Him. It is that God is hindered from doing mighty works because we as a people do not believe He can and/or will. Belief is one of the bases of the Christian “faith,” you see? A person must believe to receive. The Bible is nothing but a story book if not reverenced as the ultimate guide and loving words of the Father. Unbelief makes spiritual healing nothing but a fable.

If we do believe, why hasn’t healing come yet?

I’m not an expert on this subject. All I can say is that it’s all for the glory of God. Take this passage of Scripture for example. (John 9:3) Some sicknesses are for punishment. Some are for the work of God to be shown through us, if not for our benefit, then for the benefit of others so that they might see His glory through us. This of course can only happen when we believe and trust that God has our best interest in mind and not only our best interest but also the best interest of others. You see, possibly through your sickness and after, you can be a testimony of God’s love to people you might never have come in contact with if you had never had your illness. It’s all for the glory of God, witness to others, and opportunity for growth in your spiritual walk with God.

That being said, is it acceptable to go to doctors and take medicine? What about healing for people with mental disorders? What about going to see a counselor or psychiatrist?

In the next blog we will touch on these questions so be sure not to miss it. In the meantime, why not check out our Healing Scriptures Course on Oasis Academy? I’ll put a link to the class below. Thank you for reading!

Christ Is Our Rock

I’m going to give you a simple way to study certain things in the Bible.

So, you may read a verse in the Bible stating that Jesus is the ‘living water.” Okay, now go and look up what water is and what it does. Water will satisfy you when you are thirsty. Water will clean you up when you are dirty. Water will wash your wounds.

2 Samuel 2:21-22. Psalms 62:2 | 71:3 | 18:46 | 31:2 | 61:1 | 78:35. 1 Samuel 2:2. 2 Samuel 22:47. These Scriptures are talking about God being our rock.

1 Corinthians 10:1-4. Exodus 17:6.

Now, this rock needed to be big so enough water could come out of it to quench the thirst of over 3 million people. So, this wasn’t some little rock; it was a boulder. We don’t need to listen to the devil when He tries to make himself seem bigger than our God. Jesus is bigger than anything we are going through.

Smite – to strike, to beat, to hurt

This rock in Exodus is a beautiful representation of Jesus. In chapter 17 verse 6, it says that Moses was to smite the rock. That action represents Jesus being smitten on the cross. Matthew 26:31. Moses smote the rock so water could come out. Jesus was smitten on the cross so that living water could flow out of Him. Isaiah 53:4-5. John 19:34.

Out of His side flowed blood and water. This represented forgiveness, the Holy Ghost, and the keeping power of the Lord. Water gives strength and life.

The next time we come to this rock it’s a different story.

Now, when the children of Israel came to the rock, God commanded Moses to speak to it. Not beat it, not shake his fist and get angry at it. The first time, Christ was smitten, this second time, we speak to Him. Numbers 20:7-13.

Why did Moses smite the rock the second time?

Moses was almost like the Lord to the people. He might have thought that if he smote the rock again and the water came out that he would get the glory. If he went out and spoke to the rock, the Lord would get the glory. There’s too many people out there trying to steal God’s glory. But we have not bled and died for anyone. We were not crucified for anyone. That was Jesus who went through all that for us, so to God be the glory! At the end of the day, we all brush our teeth the way. We are little people. We own nothing, and whatever good things we have, the Lord gave them to us. We aren’t that strong or good. We ought to be on our way to Hell, but Jesus has had a lot of mercy on us. We have nothing to boast about except Jesus!

Let me talk a second about the forgotten rock.

Deuteronomy 32:18. 1 Peter 2:4. Mark 12:10. Now, here’s a little bit of Jewish history. It’s not exactly Biblical, but here’s what people think happened. When they were building Solomon’s temple, the quarry was around 3 miles away. There was not allowed the sound of a hammer inside the temple. The builders had to cut stones and beams, then bring them to the site of the temple, and the materials had to fit together right. So, each cornerstone was marked with a number. When they were bringing in one of the cornerstones, somehow the number got misplaced. They pushed the stone over the hill and the weeds soon began to grow over it.

There are some people you may know that have pushed Jesus over the hill. They’ve put Jesus out of their way and have forgotten Him. He is waiting on them, all they have to do is pull the weeds out of the way. One touch from Jesus and he can turn a life around.

We are in the Master’s hands.

Daniel 2:34. This stone was made without hands. This could represent the virgin birth. God does not need our help, but we need His. We may not have all the answers right now and we may be in a tough spot, but we are in the hands that created the universe. We may be struggling, but we are in good hands and we know that we will be alright.

If you put a basketball in my hands, it’s worth about $3. You put a basketball in Michael Jordan’s hands, it could be worth thousands. We are lumps of clay and what matters is whose hands we are in. Thank God we are in the hands of our Creator!

Jesus keeps us safe.

There was a time I saw a family having a picnic on a place of ground in the middle of a river. I went out to town for a little bit and when I passed by that river again I saw ambulances and the rescue squad. There was even a helicopter and boats. When I went to see what was going on, the power plant had opened up. The whistle for people to get out of the river had not gone off. The family that was there before was now in a flood. If the water got any higher, it was going to drown them. The people who were there to rescue them didn’t know what to do.

But there was a rock that this little family was able to cling to. One of the men came by and told us that the water would never get as high as the rock, so the family would be okay. The safest place for that family was not in a boat in the middle of the waves of the river with someone trying to help them. The safest place for them was on that rock.

The devil may be throwing a flood at you, but it will never be higher than the Rock you are putting your faith in.

A century ago, an ocean liner went down and took many people with it. One 16-year-old boy didn’t drown and the reason why was because he clung to a rock all night long before he was rescued. When he was rescued, he was asked if he shook while he held to that rock. The boy said, “Yes, of course, but that rock never shook one time.”

Jesus is our rock, my friend, and He will keep us in times of trouble. I pray this word encouraged you. Keep clinging to the Rock of our salvation! God bless you!
