We read in Judges 6: 16 And the LORD said unto him, Surely I will be with thee, and thou shalt smite the Midianites as one man. How would it change your life to know that God of all creation is for you? If you only had that sort of ultimate assurance as Gideon was told how would you do things differently? These words Gideon obviously needed to hear and take to heart, are the same words you probably need to hear today that ought to connect in deepest part of your spirit and soul. Because this is part of God’s will for your life. Allow me to give you a Scripture as I firmly believe this still applies to us today from the resurrected Lord Jesus/ Yashua.
We read in Matthew 28: 17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. (so some people who saw the actual physical resurrected Jesus still entertained a spirit of doubt, probably relatives of Thomas)
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
We are instructed in Hebrews 13: 5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
How is it so many believers in churches today act like God is actually against them somehow? Or that he does not love them as much as someone else they know because they still have some sin issues in their life? How many times have I heard someone say to me they believe God will heal and restore others, but for some very unscriptural reasons and feelings they give me thinking it can not happen for them? What a lie from the pit of hell. Or they will say to me that “God does not heal everyone”. Then I must asked them if God actually really totally paid the price for everyone’s sin on that cross at Calvary? If in fact He did, then how come not everyone gets saved? Simply stated not everyone accepts his offer of salvation which also includes healing incidentally.
Listen to me, Romans 8: 31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
If Papa God is for us lets get on with his program here. If Papa God was willing to give His only begotten Son Jesus/Yashua for us, knowing he would suffer such a terrible death but also knowing he be resurrected to glory. How much more ought we simply trust that our Lord delights in us and will generously give us anything and everything we need?
The Lord Jesus himself told us in John 14: 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. ( so there is no limits on what you can ask for)
14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. (This is the requirement to get prayers answered)
Its time to stop listening to the enemy remind you and define you of past failures. The Lord Jesus is our healer, and our provider and supernatural healing and provision will happen because of who Jesus is, not because of who we are. When you understand this principle, healing and provision and restoration happens in Jesus’ name. The Lord did not say we had to be perfect before he would deal with us. We simply need to understand he loved us first whilst we were still sinner, then won’t he love even more as saints? 1 John 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (propitiation means appeasing the Lord with the Atonement of Christ).
As Jesus received the penalty for all our sins, so that we can avoid the terrible punishment that we deserve for breaking the commandments.)
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Let us get a revelation here that the Lord truly loves us and has a good plan for our life, a plan that is probably much better then any of the ones you previously tried. The Lord Jesus is interceding for each one of us and orchestrating things to have the Holy Spirit help us and guide us.
Romans 8: 28 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.
When you accept this as reality then we ought to be better able to cope with every circumstance in our life. So we can better manage both the positive and negative things. Because when you accepted the Lord Jesus salvation plan your spirit was made alive, and your soul is reconciled with Papa God, and your body becomes a temple for the Holy Spirit and then you also becomes eligible for the first resurrection providing you keep being a doer of the Word.
