Believing God for healing.
So much has been shared in The Word about healing. Awesome this thing known as faith. The Word says if we have faith as a mustard seed, we will receive. Again, we don’t have to outright believe, but rather give God a chance! He stands politely at the door and knocks
If you want, open the door. Throw it open! There is untold joy, peace and fulfillment! At times, we have so much going on. We might not even realize it. Time to get down on your knees in your quiet place and seek the face of The LORD.
I was looking up “healing” and found these scripture references. There are tons more, a good place to start is with the basics.
My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body.
Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He sent forth his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave. Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men.
Heal me, O LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.
He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
There is so much that might stand in the way of you receiving. Search your heart! I love where the word says to be ‘born again’; teeter toddle, loose balance first. One day you will run. Our goal is to get the prize! To ‘age’ myself, I was ‘older’ or at least ‘old enough’ to remember when Carl Lewis ran in the Olympics and broke records. Prior there were others and since, his record has been beat. Point??? All these athletes started somewhere! For the most part, they crawled once. One day started walking, then jogging, then running. Practice, practice, practice then award time. Frankly, No one gets up and wins awards right out the gate. I may be wrong, but we all see Olympic champs, they work for what they have. Got faith? You worked for it!
Encourage those around you. Pray for and with them, make a difference. We shall one existence all be where there is no time, extent of ‘atmosphere’, limits. To place it simply. Even our enemy from birth, will be permanently placed away and we shall be in The presence of our God.
There are many rivers to cross prior to reaching this point, a thing (of many) that makes it easier is the fact that it is worth it! Think about it, you might have so much ‘suffering’ now, but that is for a ‘short time’s only. I know it seems like ‘everyrhing’ is topsy-turvy. That is for a period.
Trying to stay off The Word, I am drawn to nowhere else but the book of Job. As shared, when written, by whom etc is a lot of unknown. But, rather let us look for the example that is read. He had it all, yes! He worked for it, but that is part of the lesson too. No matter what he did, the first thing he did was to dedicate it with praise and thanksgiving to God.
Again, not knowing exactly when this was written is cause for a bit of ‘confusion’, we have a keen idea of when everything else was written. But, let us look at it closer for a second, it was written. The people discussed did exist, you know what? Let us say that it was all ‘fiction’ there is a lesson here. In a ‘world’ where people ‘lived’; they had or obtained what they needed. This individual (still on fiction) had what he had. Now, ‘God’ saw this and built a ‘fence’ around him. Lesson here, if we believe in God and trust that he controls our all. We are blessed to be under His care and Love.
Job lost all. Property, children, spouse, health and was asked to speak out and give up his Spirit. We see what his response was. For this ‘sharing’ we will cut it short and simple ‘Naked and without I came into this World, naked and without I may leave it.’ No matter how bad things got, he trusted in an unseen God.
Now, this brings a key point to the forefront. We have not seen God! We talk to Him! Why? It is called faith. Our Lives are made ‘easier’ when we trust this unseen force, so we trust ‘it’ more. You just made the point; we didn’t see yet trusted and received, so we trusted more and got more….see the pattern? We start small and aim BIG.
I guess this is good a place as any to pray. There are a lot of prayers, let us pray this from within and let it all go.
Father Lord, Mighty King Jesus and Ever Loving Holy Spirit. To You I come realizing that there is something I must be hoping on to that is restricting me from receiving that which You have given in full. I know I am before You, cleanse my heart, Lord not only because I desire healing, but to Your glory. If I may, I decree health and good fortune in Jesus’ name. Father, Your will be done in my life. I may want, if it is not your will, be glorified in all actions, thoughts and words from me. Today and always, I am blessed to be a part of Your Kingdom. Lord, I desire to see You. Joy overwhelms my heart at the prospect which I am only too pleased to decree that here and now and know that it is established in Heaven. Father, I know all strength, power and wisdom is from You. Strenthen me, empower me, grant me Your Spirit to lift me up out of this place that I am. In my life Lord be glorified. I thank You for Your word. Lord, give me a hunger for it always. Lord I am made in Your image with Your essence coursing through me. Lord, touch me and make me whole. I ask once again that though be glorified in and with my life for this short while I am here on earth, I pray in Jesus’ almighty name, Amen
