RISE ABOVE THE ELEMENTS
And we know that all things work together
for good to them that love God, to them
who are the called according to his
purpose (Romans 8:28).

Nothing in life, including the weather and its
elements, is set to your disadvantage. The
different seasons—summer, winter, autumn, spring—
were all created for your benefit.
In Genesis 8:22, the Lord said, “While the earth
remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat,
and summer and winter, and day and night shall not
cease.” All the weather conditions have come to stay,
because God made it that way. Nevertheless, He made
them subject to you. It makes no difference how harsh
the weather may be, you can rise above it.
Someone says, “I decided to take things easy,
because I’ve been ‘under the weather’”; how could
you be under the weather? Be above it! If you confess
you’re under the weather, the debilitating effects of the
atmospheric conditions will buffet you.
Some believe that during winter, there’s a sharp
rise in the incidence of respiratory infections, such as
the “colds” and the more severe “flu.” Thus, many
never look forward to winter; they dread it. No! If
you’re born again, you’re to rise above the weather
and all its limitations and effects, with your words.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that during winter the
weather would suddenly become hot, no. It just means
that no matter how cold it gets, it won’t have any
negative effect on you.
The earlier you start professing words of faith to
recondition the elements and circumstances in your
favour, the better for you. When others say, “There’s
cold and flu spreading like wildfire,” your response
should be different; you’re to say, “In and around
me is divine health, because I dwell in a different
atmosphere; the atmosphere of the Holy Ghost.”
Even now, declare, “I rise above the weather
conditions and the health or environmental issues
they bring. I have eternal life in me; I’m indestructible,
impregnable, and imperishable. I carry my own
atmosphere everywhere I go.” Hallelujah!
In the Name of the Lord Jesus, I rise above all
limitations and conditions that seek to put men
under. I walk in the dominion and power of the Spirit
over and above circumstances, and elements of this
world. I acknowledge that all things work together for
my good; therefore, I experience victory, prosperity,
and success today and always. Amen.
