I'm not moved by what I see, I'm not moved by what I hear

I'm just moved by the mighty word of God.

Smith Wigglesworth said that. I sometimes ask for just some of the anointing that great man had.

Greg Dickow has been publishing every day his fast from wrong thinking. The one today made me think he might be channeling Smith Wigglesworth. OH, I KNOW. I don't believe in Channelling except by the power of the Holy Spirit in revelation when we are able to say what God says.

Here's what brother Dickow said in his daily message: It's worth reading

"The things around me are really getting to me."
We don’t have to be moved by the world around us. There is something greater working in us!

1. Reject the belief that your emotions and behavior are controlled by the events in your life. Our emotions and our lives are transformed, changed and shaped by the ‘renewing of our mind (Romans 12:2). Change your thoughts, and your emotions will follow.

2. The quality of your life is not determined by what happens around you; but what happens within you. Proverbs 4:20 says, “Watch over your heart with all diligence; for out of it flow the issues of life.”

3. Believe in the power within. Ephesians 3:20 - See: God is able to do above all we ask or think BASED ON THE POWER THAT WORKS WITHIN US. 1 John 4:4 says, "Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world."

4. Learn to use affliction to YOUR ADVANTAGE.
2 Corinthians 4:17 says, “It (the momentary affliction) produces an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison.”

5. How? It ONLY works “WHILE WE LOOK NOT AT THE THINGS WHICH ARE SEEN, BUT AT THE THINGS WHICH ARE NOT SEEN.” That’s the Word of God.

6. Change your focus.
When you look through a viewfinder of a camera, you can place the focus on a number of different objects. It's UP TO YOU, the VIEWER. In the same way, we need to focus on WHAT GOD SAYS, and not on any of the things even if they may seem closer to the screen! 2 Corinthians 5:7 says, "We walk by faith, not by sight."

THINK IT & SAY IT:
I refuse to let the events of my life to control by emotions or my way of thinking. My life is transformed by the renewing of my mind. I believe God’s power is working in me, to create a life beyond my wildest dreams. I will take advantage of anything that goes on around me, by FOCUSING on what God says. As I keep my eyes on His promises, it is PRODUCING His GLORY in my life, In Jesus’ Name!

Gene,
I think you will be blessed with this email I received yesterday!

From a Woman of God I am blessed to know:

I'm shooting this out to my beloved friends today -

Today, today I say you must pray. Pray for wisdom for things to come, pray for God's will in the earth to be done. Pray for God's grace, an extended hand, pray for His mercy upon our land. Keep things intact, there will be no lack, the saints are protected, His plan is perfected. Position, position against the enemy you see, he's swift and he's cunning as can be, but we send him running when we pray, when we pray, so don't delay, don't delay I say, this is the day, don't delay, we must pray, can you hear what I say. This is the season, the season of the King, let us soak in the season for He is the reason. A season of assurance, he'll give the endurance. Don't sweat nor fret cause every need will be met. My sisters, let our hearts beat as one, yay, in one accord as we soak in the season of the Lord.
In the matchless name of Jesus. Amen
