In his book “Dealing with Difficult Situations… the Processing of the Lord” #DWDS, the author Wayne Brown highlights five strategies to deal with difficult situations. One of which is being able to speak the Word into your situation. He goes on to say that we can do this by ‘finding out what God said about your situation and begin saying what He has said.’ Even Jesus utilized this approach when He Himself was faced with a difficult situation like he did during His temptation process.
