This morning we will look at ways by which healing is obtained. As we look at the early church teachings they used healing as a means of advertising the Gospel as well as blessing the people. God is Merciful:
- Nehemiah 9:17 (NLT2) They refused to obey and did not remember the miracles you had done for them. Instead, they became stubborn and appointed a leader to take them back to their slavery in Egypt! But you are a God of forgiveness, gracious and merciful, slow to become angry, and rich in unfailing love. You did not abandon them,
- Psalm 103:8 (NLT2) The LORD is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.
- Psalm 86:15 (NLT2) But you, O Lord, are a God of compassion and mercy, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness.
- John 14:13 – 14 is a good example of this; You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, because the work of the Son brings glory to the Father. Yes, ask anything in my name, and I will do it! “Ask” in verse 13, in the Greek means (a demand –of something due).
You are not demanding it of the Father, because the Father has given you authority over Satan.
Are you asking in trust for true faith is asking in trust. Let me ask you:
Do you trust God?
Do you believe God can?
Do you believe God will?
If God healed yesterday, He will heal today…for God is the same yesterday, today and forever. God has made a way in and through the New Covenant for the healing of our bodies. Rely on God’s promises, place your trust in Him, be patient and wait on the Lord for in His timing, He will do it. GOD IS FAITHFUL to those that love Him, trust Him and obey Him.
Jesus healed the sick out of compassion and to draw all men to Him. It is the same today, Jesus heals today, through the power of the Holy Spirit, out of compassion and to draw all men to Him.
Set your mind on praising and worshipping God. Be ready to give God all the praise and worship through His Son, Jesus Christ. Believe in God’s Word, trust in God’s Word and let God’s Word take root in your whole body, soul and spirit.
Again let me say, faith is simply to place your trust in Jesus Christ and His finished work…the resurrection of Jesus Christ is all about a new creation that of Christ in us and regeneration of a new man.
Don’t try to make the healing happen, it’s not us that makes it happen. IT IS FAITH IN GOD, yes, the full assurance that GOD WILL. So trust Him with all you body, mind, emotions, thoughts, spirit and soul. It is God our Creator, who works good things out for our good.
In other words, ALL THAT IS WITHIN YOU, believe, trust and obey. GIVE HIM YOUR ALL! Let God do what only God can do!
More on healing in tomorrow ‘s thoughts.
As always, love in Christ Jesus,
