How to Quickly Change Your World through Love

God is bringing a new movement to the Earth and many prophets, including myself, are saying this is going to be the biggest revival in history! But before we can see a revival of this magnitude in the world, we need to experience a personal revival in our own lives.

It starts by overcoming the things that have overcome us. If you have felt held down or held back, it’s time for breakthrough in your own life!

Keys to igniting revival in your own life

  1. Transform your thoughts to transform your life. Negative forces want you to believe bad things about yourself like: I’m depressed. I’m worthless. I can’t change. I’m stupid. I’m ugly. I’m such a failure. … the list could go on and on. But your negative thoughts are not who you really are. It is important to realize that your thoughts, feelings and behaviors are situational and can be changed.

    For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. Proverbs 23:7, NKJV

    Many of the thoughts and behaviors we battle daily have a root cause: something we have done, knowingly or unknowingly, or things that were done to us. Healing these emotional wounds can be a process, but there are new approaches that can dramatically cut down your healing and recovery time. If you commit yourself to the process, you can overcome them. It is part of your destiny to find healing and live a life of fullness.

  2. Move from judging others into blessing others. Sometimes judging others can hold us back from experiencing the breakthrough and personal revival we need in our lives. As we move from judging into blessing, we open the heavens over our lives to receive a full measure of revelation. This lifestyle enables you to hear God accurately and consistently. It is a strategy God has given me and over the years I have lived this lifestyle of blessing and love.

    Check your own words as you go about your day. If you mess up, recognize it quickly and move on. We get lots of chances to start over and do it right the next time. Ask God to bless your mouth to help you speak only life-giving words.

    Here’s a prayer that I use: “If my tongue has cursed me, knowingly or unknowingly, I ask forgiveness.”

  3. Believe God wants to bless you with more than you can imagine. God has called you to something, even if it seems like your life has been exactly opposite.

    In order for you to understand what God has called you to, you first have to believe that God wants to visit you. He wants to bring His loving presence and He wants to encourage you. The key to all of this is to not get disappointed or feel like you’re less than because God didn’t move in your life the way you expected Him to.

  4. Don’t get discouraged! Release any expectations of what might happen or should happen. It would be good to renounce anything in the past where you’ve been wounded. It’s so important to clear the air right now.

  5. Repent of any unforgiveness you have towards others. If you do this, you’re going to clear the spiritual atmosphere and be more able to hear God’s voice clearly.

We’re going to see great things happen over the next few months. Get your hopes up!

      Hello Vicki! I am so sorry your sons are struggling. I can imagine being a parent that is super difficult to watch your children go through hard times. Doug has a webinar on healing called Accelerate Your Time to Heal. This covers not only physical healing just also spiritual and emotional healing.

      I am agreeing with you for healing in your sons and family. Bless you!

    Thank you Doug and team for loving me to wholeness in Christ. I didn’t realize how years of expecting things my way and not seeing them had left me discouraged. As I read and repented, I began to weep and I could see and feel God’s love pour over those gaping wounds.. I am FREE to receive all He has for me so I can share it with a hurting nation. Thank you

    Doug, this is really important to me, I hope you will reply. This prayer that you use “If my tongue has cursed me, knowingly or unknowingly, I ask forgiveness.” Didn’t you get this off of a William Marion Branham video when he prayed this before he began ministering? And in this video the woman he is about to pray for was ill because people had judged her. Do you remember that? Is there a way I can get a hold of this video or transcript?
    That prayer is POWERFUL! More powerful than I think most Christians understand.
    I love you Brother and I love what you are doing!
    Keep up the good work, you are such a blessing to California!!!!!!

    A heartfelt thank you for this word of direction, as well as the recent peculiar and most pleasant call to fast. It has been a time of the sweetest communion with the Lord. Eagerly awaiting the great Glory Wave that is coming. (During the amazing renewal of the 1990’s, while praying at the east gate of our County, I stood on a flat rock in the surf. A huge wave crashed around me and the thousands of tiny seashells let out a thunderous roar. I felt the Lord saying, “There is a wave of my Presence that is coming that will be even greater than this. When this wave comes the multitudes will make a tumultuous roar.” I knew this had to be a Word from the Lord because I couldn’t imagine how any visitation could be greater than the renewal.)

    Deepest gratitude and praise to the Lord for you. He has made you a prince among men, as you have walked out His prophetic call on your life with such pastoral compassion and caring. I consider you my pastor.

    I need healing emotionally. My husband and i went through a traumatic tragedy a few months ago that almost took his life. Please pray for our healing of emotions because during these events previous emotional stuff not previously dealt with started to come forth. We need prayer of totsl healing in order to move forward!

    I would say yes and Amen to your blog. Implicit memory events and lie based beliefs keep people bound. There is inner healing that is also available today such as Theophostic Prayer, Sozo, or Immanuel prayer to help where we all get stuck. The values of love are not easily implemented by those motivated by fear. It is getting to the attachment center and getting a new encounter that changes us the most. Replace lies with a Truth encounter.
