To Walk In Power, Change the Way You Think

Jesus said, “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.” Many of us were taught that this means we need to confess our sins and stop sinning. Of course, we do want and need to grow in holiness, but the word here used for “repent” actually means “change the way you think”.

In my years of healing ministry, I have been challenged over and over in how I think. The blockages we face in praying for the sick are in our minds, in our hearts, in the “vain imaginings” that exalt themselves against the knowledge of Christ. Jesus is telling us — commanding us — to change the way we think.

Say this with me: “With man, it is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

I’m posting a short video for you that’s pulled from a longer message I gave in Dayton, Ohio earlier this year. Some of you were there with me when I delivered it, but this is such an important thing for us to grasp that I wanted to feature it here on the blog. As you watch the video, allow the Holy Spirit to reveal any places where your thoughts are stuck in what your past has told you or where your understanding of science may have limited your faith.

“How did God do that?”

What a beautiful question to ask! If we can get to place where we address God’s mysterious ways with curiousity instead of unbelief (or disbelief), I think we’ll be on our way to walking in greater levels of his supernatural activity. It’s similar to the difference between Zechariah and Mary, two people who received similar pronouncements from Gabriel the angel. Zechariah seems to have responded out of unbelief while Mary’s response, though seemingly similar, carries a clear note of acceptance and submission to the impossible. In that moment, she changed the way she thought to embrace the nonsensical, thereby allowing faith to get on board.

It seems that every month at Global Awakening, we hear a report of a healing that should be impossible. Sometimes we even get the medically-verified reports to prove the healing happened, but every time God operates in a higher law than the laws of nature that we currently know, it’s a challenge for the hearer. Will you and I believe, embrace curiosity, and allow our minds to expand around the truth of God? Or will we doubt, get cynical, and keep the new idea cordoned off?

Action Points This Week

  1. Ask the Holy Spirit go guide you into all truth, releasing what that will look like to God.
  2. Look for opportunities to expose your own unbelief, so that you can…change the way you think!
  3. It can be helpful to write down two or three simple declarations of faith to speak aloud, thereby training the neural pathways in your brain to accept truth. Perhaps something like, “With God all things are possible, and all things are possible for him who believes. I believe, Lord; help my unbelief.”

    Hi, I’m attend a Vineyard church where the gifts of the Spirit are active. During a ministry time someone called out “shoulder pain that happened during exercise “ which was me. I was excited because it was painful and wanted healing. Two Godly men prayed for me but no healing occurred. They gave words of encouragement about staying obedient and patient. It’s been a week and a half now and I am baffled ( but not angry at God) , thinking that when a condition is called out, healing will follow. Any thoughts you could share on my situation? I am remaining faithful , still believing healing will occur, but just wondering. Thanks, Mike

    It's a blessing and encouragement to be able to hear such men as Clark, Johnson, etc. Believer's will always need to press into the Kingdom until we met the Lord, but it is never enough to completely satisfy my desire to finally be in the Kingdom that I've only "seen" in part. It is like hot lava flowing over the land but only burns and moves out the enemy' Praying for so very much, much more. There something mind-blowing about seeing the BODY OF CHRIST, by the Spirit, move upon His World. Lord Bless!!

    Is there a church in Mechanicsburg Pennsylvania that Randy Clark is associated with. I need healing to manifest
    • This commment is unpublished.
      Joseph Cotten · 2 months ago
      Valerie, we are not affiliated with any one church. Randy attends several churches, depending on when he’s in town or traveling. There are several life-giving churches in the Mechanicsburg area, though, who believe in God’s power to heal. If you’re in this area and looking for suggestions of churches to visit, we can give a few places for you to check out. If, however, you’re in a different part of the country, we have a listing of Network churches you can check out at https://globalawakening.com/network/network-directory

    Is Randy OK? He seems to be stuttering a lot. Should we be praying for him? I saw him in Southampton in UK - I'd love him to come back again

      Joseph Cotten · 2 months ago
      Hi Annie! Randy’s doing great! He’s traveling around Brazil right now as part of Youth Power Invasion. His speaking style has always been authentic and unpretentious. The “stuttering” you mention is simply him speaking off the cuff, like anyone would when recounting a personal story that they hadn’t planned on sharing.

    Beautiful and timely message brother Randy! Every message the Lord has been giving me is on faith. It isn't a coincidence- I lost my job in April and just landed another job. Lol and behold, I was diagnosed with a rotator cuff today ( I can barely move my arm without excruciating pain), while am supposed to start the job next week. I am a nurse and need my arms. Thank God I know and believe He is still in the business of healing, and there is nothing impossible with Him. Because by the stripes of Jesus, I was healed!
    Thank you for sharing this message!

      Joseph Cotten · 2 months ago
      Wow, Elizabeth. That’s a hard thing, losing a job and being forced to live on faith, not to mention the pain of a rotator cuff injury. We bless what God is doing in your life, and pray that God covers you with His healing virtue today, in Jesus’ name.

    I have seen a lot of mental and emotional healing and the job i am privileged to be in allows me to witness 1st hand Gods power at work in changing and transforming lives. I have first hand many people set free form long term addictions and the effects of it. I have not seen many physical healings. I know there is more and i am hungry for it. I prayed for a woman once who was healed of asthma and COPD. That was amazing! I was once in a place where I had to pray God i believe but help me to overcome my unbelief. Sometimes i still do. I know He can do it and i know there is more and i want to see more of His power and people being healed from physical conditons.

      What an amazing testimony, to have seen first-hand the supernatural power of God to heal emotional and mental illnesses! That's wonderful. Perhaps you have a message to work on in regards to faith for emotional healing and mental healing!

    I was there at ATD and this was one of the messages that really opened my mind up. Prior to ATD I believed I had a connection to the spirit and had heard his voice, but wasn't sure I had the capability to do anything but pray quietly. Because I don't know how it works. I still don't know the how of it but I can no longer hold back.

      Thank you for sharing this, Michael. We believe that God uses our conferences to advance people forward in their faith-walks, but it’s always so encouraging to hear from someone like yourself who was directly impacted by them. Bless you!

      Russ, we bless you in Jesus’ name, and command this back pain to go. We declare that Jesus’ blood covers your life, and that God is your healer. In Jesus’ name, I command all causes of pain and inflammation to go now, and for the Kingdom of God to rise up within your body.

    This is very timely!! Thank you!! I've been struggling with a mysterious illness for the past few weeks now (extreme fatigue and 'brain fog' - trouble concentrating/remembering and feeling like I've been living in a dream-like state). It's been pretty debilitating and I haven't been able to get out of the house much, including to go to work. The doctors aren't sure what is causing it, but I feel very strongly that God has been telling me that He will heal me. It has been a journey of growing in faith in believing that God wants to heal me. Just yesterday, I listened to a Bill Johnson teaching (from years and years ago) on Psalm 103. Randy's video clip above helped grow my faith even more! As I've been praying, I've slowly but surely been improving over the past week, and I am believing that God will fully heal me! He is so good!!

      Emily, you might like to check out Dr. Bob's teachings on Marilynandsarah.com. He has written a book entitled Dr. Bob's Guide to Prevent Surgery. In the shows he talked about common conditions that can be easily rectified. An important one had to do with thyroid issues. Have a listen, I think you'll be glad you did.

      Hi Emile. It seams how I was feeling in February 2019. All the symptoms you described and more that I was sleepy all day He time. I would sleepy 12 hours straight and 10:00 A.M I was sleepy again. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroid. Most people with Thyroid issue blood tests show normal I was told. Not saying that is what is going on with you just look ? familiar to me. By now I believe that the Lord already healed me. I went to Bethel Healing Rooms and they prayed for me. I haven’t felt anything since that. Praying ? for you.

      Emily... you may want to consider whether you could be experiencing a major alteration.... an upgrade from your former state into a higher "level". If so, this is what Randy wrote about repenting.... and your physical bodily system is adjusting. Of course you can ask God to explain

    Living in the tension of our current condition juxtaposed against Kingdom possible is a challenge. My daughter is mentally ill, but I have learned it is possible to bring God glory in the midst of disability and not just through divine healing. Even so, I’m contending for the fullness of God’s best on earth as it is in Heaven. I teach internationally on God’s heart for the disabled while bringing autism intervention into global regions with least access (rrsautism.org). But admittedly I want to bring divine healing as Holy Spirit initiates... I so appreciate the torch bearers in this realm who go before us leading the way. Thank you!

      Mary Romcevich · 2 months ago
      Melanie, you’re probably most aware of how God uses those with disabilities to open the hearts of many, awaken compassion which is a most essential need. Granted that this is true, in this hour He is doing something new to increase, and I believe those working with Him who have autism will “awaken” us greatly as He moves to “bring them out” through gifts of supernatural healing and miracles. I have seen two brothers healed immediately through prayer. Apart from those looking to others, parents will be used in many cases. When possible when dealing with other parents, remind them to rest in His Word and His Presence. And thank you!

    Consider the possibility that healing does not necessarily represent the use of some law of nature we don't know, but rather the invasion of heaven's "physics" into our lesser, three-dimensions-plus-time physics. The point is not that miracles are unnatural, but rather that our own universe was created out of heaven's "universe," and that what we regard as the rules of physics are actually just a small subset of what's possible there. When God intervenes, He brings with Him the "physics of heaven," so to speak, so that what is possible there occurs here.

    I was reading Acts 12 this morning, where an angel walks Peter out of prison. The chains simply fell off his hands. Now, that's not physically possible--unless some part of our three-dimensional universe got visited by beings that exist in six dimensions, or nine dimensions...and then it's just a simple matter of moving the chains into three dimensions other than ours, and voila!! off they come, 'cause they no longer even exist in our three dimensions.

    It doesn't really matter which of us is correct, it's still the case that what's possible in the Kingdom of Heaven supersedes what is possible in our three-dimensional universe. If we walk in the Spirit, we can have access to the greater Kingdom truth, even if we don't understand the physics of it, or even if we understand incorrectly. That said, though, it does come in handy to follow cosmology, because it helps us get the limits off our thinking.

    Lord teach us to "examine the thoughts and intents of our hearts" so that the only thoughts we ever receive and believe will have been already cleansed and corrected, processed, ordered and released through "REPENTANT THINKING."

    is the rest of this message on a You Tube or have to order from the Destiny conference. It is SO basic, such a KEY to the power of Kingdom authority, that I look for directions on how to hear the complete message. Randy, is this not your basic truth and Manifeso Message for your entire ministry calling?! Rev. Wm Hart
