As Promised – The Great Forsake and Take

My beloved Sisters,

Thanks is too small a word for the privilege to serve you. You are graces of a merciful God to me. How I pray God revealed Himself to you in an intensely personal way today. Here is the equipping that I promised in the simulcast to those who are ferociously ready to forsake fear and take courage. You will find a cover sheet for your notebook, a letter from me suggesting how to use the resource, and enough verses to keep you well immersed for a good while. They are life and liberty to any of you who, like me, have battled a stronghold of fear but they are also vastly useful when you are facing a temporarily intimidating or frightening situation, like surgery or a speech in front of your class or a hard conversation requiring you to speak the truth in love. It doesn’t matter what circumstances are tempting you to fear and to shrink back from your faith and your calling, you are invited and even commanded by God to take much courage. It is your right of daughtership, “for you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons [and daughters!], by whom we cry, ‘Abba! Father!’” (Romans 8:15)

By all means, you are welcome to openly share this link with anyone else who could use this kind of equipping, whether or not they joined us for the simulcast.

The Great Forsake and Take

Stay in the Word, Sisters! You are chosen and loved by the sovereign King of all creation and the calling on your life demands power and insight that only He can bring. Trust Him. He cannot do you wrong.

Christ is life,

    I have been going through a very rough few years. I have been hit from every angle and we are raising are 2 yr. old grandaugther. She is pure joy! I know God led me here today. I have had this sudden love for jars. I have been collecting them I thought to use in my office for sewing supplies. All different sizes and designs. Who new God had a marvelous plan for those jars. I love the way God comes right down into our lives. I got my angry worship on today and I am going to take back what the enemy has stolen from me. He is going to be sorry he messed with me. God will take this and just make me stronger. Through my heartache and pain I will bless others. I will never give up! My God is Mighty and yes worthy of Praise. Your prayer spoke to this sister and I receive it. Thank you all for this day I needed revival.

    Thank you, sweet sister, for powerfully sharing God’s Word with us today. I loved the prayer you prayed for your sister…I prayed it right back to God thinking of you! How did you know that I needed to hear what you taught? God constantly amazes me. Sept. 15, 2012: The day I pushed back the enemy, forsaking fear, and taking courage. I love you, Mama 🙂

    We had a “God” day in Ft. Valley Georgia!! 13 women! thank you for listening to our Lord! I do have question, we were wondering if Beth’s prayer for “her sister” could be posted. It said so much, and spoke to many hearts. But we would like to have it as a memory or a reminder of what we have prounounced and declared with you. Hope that will be possible! God Bless!

    Dear Beth,

    Thank you once again for being such a blessing unto me & my daughter Jesse( Jasdeep) today.Thank you for all the effort you have put into preparing the lesson for the simulcast as well as the fear & courage booklet. May our Lord return a thousandfold in blessings to you & your loved ones.
    I truly desire Christ to fill me, this jar of clay to the full & overflowing. I ask Him for a revival of faith in my life so that I may be what He truly wants me to be. Come Lord Jesus and take over!

    I honestly didn’t think the simulcast would be as effective as being with you and your team in person, but it was.
    Thank you for making this ministry available to us in
    Canada…As usual God used you to speak into a very difficult situation that we are facing… it seems as though God always uses you to minister right into my life. Thank you for your obedience to do what He leads you to do. He so often uses you to shed His guidling light and bring encouragement and the renewed desire to move forward. Love you Beth

    Hello Beth,

    I attended your simulcast today in Reading. What a wonderful Word from God you brought. The Word spoke volumes to my spirit! I read and prayed through the scriptures you provided on fear already, and I’m going to print out the PDF and meditate on these verses in the weeks to come. I already feel more encouraged than I did earlier today. Thank you for that incredible message! May God bless you and keep you.

    Carolyn says:

    Thank you. There are no words to tell you how God has used you today in my life. And just when I thought I had all that He had for me this day- you prayed for me. There are no words. Finally, I truly believe that He can demolish the strongholds that I have been fighting with His tools, but in my strength. Thank you Beth. Thank you and Praise God. I have never written to anyone like this before but I just wanted you to know how thankful I am that you listen and were willing to sacrifice to overcome your personal fears so that God could continue to use you so mightily.

    Debra says:

    Thank you for the blessings received today! We were not made for fear – thank you for dispelling some of the darkness today! We had 140 at our simulcast event – 1st time to host! You can include another country as we had one from Ireland with us in West Virginia! This past week we prayed for revival to start with us – thank you for touching us with the word that reemphasized this in us! Glory to God!

    Dear Beth,

    Thank you. As I sat in the Sovereign Center today, I could hear God speaking through you. There have been times in my life when I’ve been Girl A and times when I’ve been Girl Z. I’m not okay with being ‘fine’ any longer. You are so right, my dream home isn’t anyplace on this Earth. My dream home is with my Heavenly Father. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    I am still reeling, in a very good way, at all the reminders and truths that you shared with us today. I will never forget this day and am anxious to purchase and share this tremendous blessing with others. Many, many women spread the good news! Thank you! I am forever changed!Praise God!

  16. 316
    Peggy says:

    Today was an incredible event. God truly used you, Beth to speak the truth to the women (and some men) in attendance both at the Sovereign Center and throughout the world. Thank you sweet Jesus for hammering home FEAR NOT and then sharing how to do just that! All the answers are in the Bible….and Beth you reinforced this fact. God Bless you, the Cottrells, the Moores and all the unseen in the background. Sh sh sh shalom!

    Thank you Beth and ministry team!

    This day was the most perfect, God-ordained day, a day for which He was preparing me all week long! wow!

    I am so grateful for your open, surrendered hearts to be used by God. I have followed you and done the studies, all of them. God has used you as instruments of healing in my life.

    Thank you again! I pledge to pray for your ministry.

    Thank you so much for praying for me today sister! I was filled with so much fear that I had not been out of my house for weeks. This morning was so much different though, I woke up and felt this urgent need to get out that door and make my way to the Simulcast today.

    As if God himself was guiding me to where He knew I needed to be. I was so moved by every word you had spoken and every song that Travis and the prayer team sang. It was as if you were speaking soley to me helping me to push back my fear and take courage.

    Today I am free I have confessed my sins. I trust Jesus to be my personal Savior and His spirit now dwells in me! I have been ressurected from the dead. Now I will live in the supernatural life with God. I want to have the certain rights of one of the daughters with the rest of my sisters that have been promised by God, our Father in Heaven.

    Today was an amazing day!!! I can not wait to see the woman that God will make me to be. Thank you so much for all of your words of encouragement, letting the Lord speak through you to me and setting me free from my bondage. Words simply can not express what has happened to me today.

    I will stay strong and steadfast with my heart as I push back the enemy and receive all that the Lord will choose to use me for. “The Lord speaks and many, many women spread the good news”. Our God is a great God today I was witness to the miracle that is now me. Bless you, Travis and the prayer team for all that was revealed to me through you today!!!!

    Your Sister,

    I have recently moved into a new area, away from my church family, and friends. Over the years, we lovingly completed several of your studies and I was very determined about finding a way to bring you along with me. How surprised I was to see your poster up at our new church. I tried to talk a couple people into going with me, but they all had plans. Your message about girl A and girl Z was exactly where I am. I see myself in both examples, which of course brought be to tears during one of the praise songs that Travis led. During the prayer for your “sister”, I was sure the words were spoken just for me. I almost wanted to look up to see if you were standing over me, but I didn’t want to break the power that was so evident in the room. Thank you so very much.

    Lisa says:

    Wow!!!! God was truly speaking through you in Georgia today. We worshiped and studied with about 325 women at our church. Thank you for praying over us. If possible could you post the prayer so we can have a copy to always remember the words and petitions that were presented to our Father in our behalf today.
    Thank you Beth, Travis,(music was over the top) and team,

    Kathy Jones says:

    Wow, thank you for the word today through the simulcast. The powerful prayer at the end is confirmation how good God is and how He wants us to live in faith and not fear. I look forward to studying “The Great Forsake and Take” along with Wising Up in the next few weeks. I can’t wait to share it with my husband who suffers from fear and anxiety. Ironically, I stayed for our weekly church service after the simulcast and our pastor was also speaking on fear and how Peter was fearful when God asked him to step out of the boat and onto the water. Again, confirmation on getting the “faith” back in “faithfulness”.
    I pray I will be faithful in speaking the word and not being fearful.
    Thank you and your team for all you do and I love Travis, his voice is amazing….
    Blessings and Good Night from Sunny South Florida. (although it rained here all day..LOL)

    Lisa Perna says:

    WOW! All I can say is how awesome and FAITHFUL is our God!! Every word penetrated my spirit and soul today! The presence of our living God was felt during the entire day!! The prayer over me was powerful and well received!! Today was a day that was ordained for me and I thank you so very much for always speaking volumes into my life!! I felt so honored that I could actually be in Reading to feel everything in person!!! God Bless you and your amazing team!!

    Kelley Lucht says:

    I enjoyed your simulcast today, it was exactly what I needed to renew my faith. Thank you for your passion and ability to convey God’s faithfulness. My faith was revived. You must be exhausted! I plan to print off your blog about fear and will reference it daily…God spoke loud and clear through you today. Thanks you! Kelley

    Michelle says:

    There aren’t words enough to express my gratitude for the word you brought to us today. As a believer for many, many years, I find myself in such a spiritual valley and riddled with fear of the unknown. I have become slave to it and have allowed the oppression to affect every part of my life.
    Today, I felt a fresh inflowing of the Holy Spirit to my soul like I haven’t felt in a long time. It was a time I so desperately needed!! The Lord graciously directed me to a fellow pastor’s wife who has shared some of the same struggles and as we cried together, we declared victory over fear and we relished in the way in which the Holy Spirit was moving in such a tangible way that we could feel him all over our skin! AMAZING!!!
    Thank You, Jesus, for the victory I have in You! Thank You Abba for using Beth to speak directly to my dry and weary soul. I may have been down but I am not out!! I will “walk on in victory”!!!

    Debbie says:

    What a day. I will never be the same. Thank you for your faithfulness to deliver the message and thank you to my Lord to prepare my heart to receive the word and to the Holy Spirit for making it it real to me. Those 7 points were a refreshment to my mind and soul and 2 Kings 4 will never be the same for me. I am so peace, God has restored me. Thank you.

  28. 328
    Kelly Campbell says:

    Thanks so much for sharing God’s Word with us today. I am praying that I will be unrecognizable in a few months. I am quietly listening to God for the areas of fear, anxiety, and worry so that I can set our some jars of my own. Some are obvious, and they are always right in front of me, but I want Him to examine me and work in me to give me strength and courage in areas I am not even aware of yet.
    Thank you, Beth, for speaking to us, for giving your fear to God! He definitely worked through you. I was blessed in the Presence!

    Printed out the Fear and Courage pages and excited to study through them. However, none of the blue and gray words, references etc, printed out. I have pages of fill-in-the blanks. Any one else have this problem? Or maybe fill-in is the way it is supposed to be??

    Janelle says:

    Beth, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for allowing Jesus to live and breathe through you. I cannot imagine the emotional exhaustion that must go home with you, but also the incredible blessing.

    I just feel the need to tell you what a difference Jesus is making through you. It is so hard to even find the right words. I received with joy and tears every word of your prayer, just wishing it could penetrate even deeper into my soul. My family has battled the stronghold of fear for as many generations as any of us can recall.

    I am the first to attempt to break free, and I have been fighting a very literal battle since April. I have been experiencing many victories, but also many defeats, and I do not have the support of my family, who reinforce many fears every time I am with them. They unintentionally would be the “Gehazi’s” who would keep me from the feet of Jesus, and the Pharisees who would argue me out of believing God. The enemy does not want to let my family go, but by the grace of God this scourge of fear will NOT pass to my precious daughters.

    Today I was given more truth to use to defeat the enemy, as well as beautiful word pictures (gotta love that snake on the wooden leg). You truly will never know what a difference you have made in the life of this (like yourself) former pit-dweller. Well, maybe still crawling out of the pit, but Lord Jesus, let me be even freer!

    I am in the process of studying Believing God with a few friends and I am so thankful for teachers like you, who passionately give us biblical truth. Each time we turn on the DVD, we jokingly but seriously too always say that of course Beth is going to tell us each EXACTLY what we needed to hear that day. And this is only because the Spirit of the Living God simply emanates from every pore of your being.

    Sorry about the length of this comment, but one more thing…

    We are trying to figure out a way to transform Believing God into something we can teach our children in a kid-friendly way, especially the part about being Who He Says We Are. A friend (who is a teacher) and I (who just love my children by have no writing talent whatsoever) have been brainstorming and wondered if you have anyone on staff who might tackle the task, or would be willing to talk over some ideas with us.

    Again, THANK YOU!

    Kristi says:

    The most awesome thing was how God spoke to me through your petition for “your sister.” How wonderful that we can study and study and study and still not figure Him out. He will still amaze…

    The second awesome thing was the privilege of meeting you, Beth. “Pretty close to Philadelphia” Thankyou for your faithfulness to God’s truth!

    It was an incredible day!! Praise God and shout it from the rooftops!!! :))

    I recieved the biggest blessing today from you today. Also your praise team was awesome.

    Today is the day for OUR REVIVAL! Forsake our fear and take courage…The Lord speaks, many,many women spread the good news. All of us need a miracle. I have no fear so I say move back fear. These are words that I am going to live by every day.

    Thank you for praying for me, your “sister”, I recieved every spoken word that you prayed to our heavenly Father. You are a true blessing.

    Becky says:

    I’m sure you didn’t know it, but every note you prepared for today was just for me. I’m thanking God today for His faithfulness and for yours.

    I’m also pretty sure I’ll be getting my “angry praise” on a little more from now on. Tell Travis I said “thanks” for that one.

    Christie says:

    Dear Beth and Simulcast Team,

    I just have to let you know how much your prayer meant to me. You were praying for me, I heard it, the one who “thinks everything is fine and doesn’t know what to ask for”. Yep, that was me. I wrote as quickly as I could as you prayed for me, writing words that resonated with me as you spoke them. I can’t wait to see what happens as I look over my notes from this day and wonder why I wrote that word, or that word, or even that one later on. As I type, I’m printing out the Great Forsake and Take challenge on CARDSTOCK

      …because I think this is going to be with me and used by me for a long time. I have SO many friends that I need to share it with! Thank you for an amazing second half to my weekend.

    Thank you so much for your obedience to our Heavenly Father to bring His word to us in ways we can relate. Also I want to say what a beautiful sight to see when you just get on your knees and keep on teaching His word with such joy and love and complete surrender to His will. Thank you sweet Jesus for this amazing woman you use to show others complete surrender.

    thanks for listening to the Lord and sharing with us. Thanks for sharing about the women in II Kings. i have been in both camps. The Lord started a major work in my heart today and I can’t wait to see the change in three months!
    The music was electric, thanks Travis and team! I was hoping to hear “Shackles”, next time.
    I have been to many of your seminars either live or simulcast. this was the best yet! Praise you Jesus for He is Worthy!!!! Many prayers were answered today.

    Thank you Beth! I was at your conference today in Reading PA and I was blown away. I have been studying and living Gods word through you for the past few months but man on man, that was incredible! My entire church group (including my mother) walked out of the sovereign center sobbing..for good measure of course! You are such a wonderful speaker and have such a passion for our beloved father and I will be forever a fan of yours ♥

    Most fondly yours

    Thank you, today I realized how distance at times I can become from GOD, I layed down my fears today. WIth alot of trials going on in my life, today made me realize all the fears I have with my daughters tumors, surgery, my own health, on top of a court battle for my precious son. Although I give it to our LORD sometimes it still bothers me, I relized again thanks to this Simulcast and mainly to our Lord Jesus that he is in control and I have no reason to fear since HE will be there with me. Thank you God so much for Beth and her staff, along with many, many people in my church who have been praying for my family. Thank you so much. God Bless!!

    Can we PLEASE get a copy of the prayer you so amazingly wrote and prayed over your “sister” today???

    Thank you so much for it all today! I had made a note earlier to look up verses and make my own “Fear Not” notebook- I’m so excited to have your now!!!! 🙂 THANK YOU!

    The prayer was so beautiful and so true- I would love to have it to pray over and over again! 🙂

    Praise God I don’t have to fear! If God is for me who can be against me? I will push back the enemy and take back what he has taken! I will be one of the ‘many women who spread the Good News’! Thank you Father, God for using Beth and the team help me regain my courage and cast out fear!

    Danielle W. says:

    Wow! What an amazing day! Beth, the prayer and the declarations you had us repeat to our sisters sitting around us was SO POWERFUL! Is there anyway, we could also get a copy of what you had us repeat to each other? Also, I really hope someone writes a transcript of that POWERFUL prayer as I would love to have that too! THANK YOU SO MUCH for today!

    What a moving and blessed message. Praise God for all that He has, is and will do in us as we go forward in faith and foresaking fear. I am looking forward to the great changes and growth I anticipate in my life in the next 90 days and going forward from there.
