Have you tried “everything” to heal? Like, wishing the problem would go away? Like talking about the problem to everyone you know? Like, praying every morning, like mouthwash? And yet, nothing seems to work… Now what?
Here’s my number one surefire approach to positive change: every 37 seconds. Huh? Here’s the deal. Many problems require constant persistence rather than the “every now and then” approach.
I remember the time I learned this. I had just been hit with a huge spike of fear. The kind that grabs your gut and twists it in a dozen knots, and then sends buckets of bile into your throat. You know the kind. The situation warranted a bit of fear—concern, perhaps. But not this. No way. I knew that Satan had overplayed his hand.
So I spent the next month challenging the fear. Commanding it to go. Reminding it of the promises and character of God. Every 37 seconds. Over and over and over. Every time the gut would twist, I’d remind the enemy that I was having no part of it. Every 37 seconds. Every time the fear hit, I’d whop it and demand that it to go. Every 37 seconds. Every time the bile would rise, I’d replace the lying fear with the Truth. Every 37 seconds.
You know what? Within a month, the fear was gone. And what’s more, the issue that caused the fear had absolutely no power over me! I was free!
I’ve used this same approach for the past 30 years, both personally and with others I’ve ministered to. It works every time it’s used consistently. Not once in the morning. But every 37 seconds.
