Don't Agree Things Are a Pain in the Butt Unless You Want a Pain in Your Butt - By Linda Burton

Mark Virkler's picture

Last summer as we were moving furniture, I felt my lower back go out of place.  I fell to the floor crying out, “My back, my back.”  As I lay there I prayed, “Lord Jesus, please lay Your hands on my back and heal it.”  In a little bit I was able to get up and move about with discomfort but not intense pain.  Then every day I noticed less discomfort and more flexibility.

In December, I started feeling pain in my lower back and sciatic nerve in my right leg.  It was in the same place as the injury last summer so I believed it was coming from that.  I started doing exercises to strengthen my lower back and to relieve the pain.  After three weeks, the pain was still very intense and not getting better.  At this point I began questioning if there was something else going on. 

I went to Jesus and quieted myself, turned to vision, tuned to the flow of the Spirit and journaled.  I asked Jesus what the root of this pain was.  I saw and heard Him laughing.  He asked, “Did you not agree with your daughter that some things in life are a real pain in the butt?”  Immediately I remembered her making that statement and my agreeing.  Oh my! Oh my!  Jesus then said, “I just gave you what you asked for!”  I saw the twinkle in His eyes and He chuckled.

Needless to say, I immediately confessed, repented and asked forgiveness for making this agreement.  When I awoke the next morning, the pain was gone and has not come back.

Jesus said, “Beloved, words come easily and agreements are made without thought.  In the Kingdom, every word is of great importance, for good or evil.  Listen to the words of your heart as you also listen to others." 

The issue my daughter was referring to was "more month than provisions."

Soon after this experience, my daughter called and in the conversation she said, “Mom, I just don’t know how I am going to pay the electric bill." As we were talking, she exclaimed, “I just paid the electric bill online and we have $10.00 left in the bank account! I didn’t think we even had enough."  Together we raised a hallelujah and praised our mighty God for His provision of more than enough.  Things are still financially tight but there continues to be more than enough! 

            Our loving holy Papa, You are so incredibly amazing. Your majesty, goodness, and loving kindness bring us to a deep sense of awe of You!  We thank You that You are our faithful God that goes before us and prepares the way for us.  As You prepare the way, Your light illumines the way we are to go.  You never lead us astray or down a dark dead-end alley.  You are never too late or too early.  Everything about You is perfect.  Thank You for who You are in us and for who we are in You.

            May we have soft and pliable hearts that respond to Your loving touches.  May we not be so busy or distracted that we forget to come and sit at Your feet and spend time with You.  May we regularly take time to celebrate life as sons and daughters of The Most High God!  Thank You, Papa, thank You! We love You!

Prayer Application for breaking agreement with lies

Examples of lying agreements to be aware of and to renounce: Pain in the neck, sick to my stomach, never enough, I cannot succeed, I am a victim of…, I am sick with ..., etc. 

Discernment: Lord, are there negative agreements or judgments I have made against self, others or circumstances which are now binding me and keeping me from Your bountiful provision and full health? Remind me of them. Show me what they are and how they have affected my life. Lord, speak to me Your truths which counter these lies of the enemy so I can speak them over my life. Journal out what He speaks.

Confession and repentance: I confess and repent of my sin of embracing these lies, and of living in judgment against myself, others and circumstances. I release  judgments against myself, others and circumstances which have affected my life, and acknowledge that You can and do work all things out for good (Rom. 8:28). I ask You, God, to forgive me, and I receive Your forgiveness. I forgive myself for participating in this sin.

Action: I break off the power of these word curses, and command all connected demons to leave in Jesus' name. Jesus, cleanse the cellular memory of this trauma. Lay your hands on the ailing body part and speak health, healing and release to it, thanking God for setting you free and restoring you to full health in Jesus' name. Jesus, I speak in faith that by Your stripes I am healed. I speak to these damaged cells to be restored in Jesus' name. Function normally, in Jesus' name.

Yes, isn't it wonderful God has given us exceptional gifts to help us let go of our physical as well as our emotional pain. 

The book I wrote, EFT for Christians, Tapping into God's Peace and Joy, with help from your daughter Charity, really is another fantastic tool to help us with our limiting beliefs and our negative thoughts and words that keep us bound up in painful, and often sinful, behavior!  

Keep up the good work!
