God Keeps What We have Committed to Him!

Have you ever thought or even said, “Why did God let that happen?” Well, first of all, God only let’s happen what we let happen. What I mean by this is that we are the ones who really control how much God can actually move in our lives. Yes, He is the do-all, end-all but He won’t override our free wills. Therefore, He is not controlling everything that happens ion planet earth or in our lives. And everything that happens is not necessarily God’s will.

So, when someone asks why God let that happen, it’s wrong question because He was not the one who let it happen. We are!

Too many times, actually most of the time, people want to blame someone else for their misfortunes and a lot of the time they blame God, He is not the One who let or stopped something from happening.

Remember Genesis 1:26 where God gave Adam and Eve dominion over the entire planet? Well, things haven’t changed. Jesus bought back that lost authority and dominion and now it’s time for us to take our rightful stand in the Lord and take dominion over planet earth and everything that has to do with us.

Genesis 1:26 (KJV) 26  And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

If bad things happen, we need to look at where we opened the door for the enemy to get access to us.

 2 Timothy 1:12 (KJV) 12  For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

This verse tells us that God will keep those things that we have committed to Him. What have you committed to Him? What haven’t you committed to Him? These are serious questions that we need to ask ourselves.

1 Peter 1:5 (KJV) 5  Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Ephesians 3:20 (KJV) 20  Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

Notice that God keeps us by His power but it’s according to the power that works in us. And that means according to the amount of Word that’s in you because that’s where the power is – in His Word. Most people wouldn’t be able to fill a thimble with the amount of Word that’s in them. How on earth can they expect the power of God to work on their behalf if there’s no power working in them?

If you’ve been a Christian for any length of time, you should know that it’s the Word that you have to stand on to get results because the Word is where faith is and that’s how we please God and get results.

Hebrews 11:6 (KJV) 6  But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

By standing on God’s Word, we are protected, provided for, empowered, healed, delivered, and experience the victorious life that He has provided for us!

Psalm 138:8 (KJV) 8  The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: 
Philemon 1:6 (KJV) 6  That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
2 Timothy 2:1 (KJV) 1  Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
2 Timothy 2:4 (KJV) 4  No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

Don’t be the Devil’s Pawn in the Chess Game of Life!

Do you sometimes feel that you’re just a pawn in the Chess Game of Life? Well, that’s not God’s will for us. We have a God-given mandate to take dominion over the earth and bring it into subjection to God’s Word.

Genesis 1:26 (KJV) 26  And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

God gave Adam the dominion mandate and that’s how he was to rule the earth –  by speaking God’s Word. But satan came along and when Adam committed high treason, he lost his ability to rule supernaturally and was left to rule via his five physical senses and things were a mess!

But Jesus! Yes, Jesus not only won back our dominion mandate but reinstated us into right relationship and fellowship with our Father God!

Jesus tells us in John 14 that we can do the same works He did and whatever we ask the Father in His name, God will give it to us! Not only that, we now have legal authority over the devil and all his evil, conniving, deceitful ways.

We no longer have to resign ourselves to being satan’s pawns. Jesus overcame him and now we’re overcomers by faith in what Jesus did! Praise the Lord of glory!

So, pick yourself up and start dominating your circumstances and bring glory to the Name of Jesus!

Matthew 10:1 (KJV) 1  And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
Matthew 10:8 (KJV) 8  Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
John 14:12-14 (KJV) 12  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
13  And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14  If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

Luke 10:19 (KJV) 19  Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Romans 1:16 (KJV) 16  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
Isaiah 54:17a (KJV)
17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. 

Deuteronomy 28:1-14 (KJV)
 Psalm 91:1-16 (KJV)

How’s Your Foundation?

Matthew 7:24-27 (KJV)
24  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26  And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

Luke 6:47-49 (KJV)
47  Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
48  He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
49  But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.

 Notice that both men built houses but one laid a good foundation and the other didn’t. Also, the storm came against both houses! One stayed up and the other was destroyed. Why? Let’s take a deeper look.

First of all, let’s look at how they built their houses. One was diligent and patient enough to lay a good foundation, which is comparable to being grounded in God’s Word. Not only did the first person hear God’s Word, but he also did God’s Word and it probably was an on-going way of life to him.

The second person seemed to be in too much of a hurry and just built his house on the sandy earth – not a good foundation and not a good idea!

We see in Luke 6:48 that when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against the house with the good foundation and could not even shake it! I want you to notice that it was inevitable that the storm would come as we see in the following scripture:

2 Timothy 3:12 (KJV) 12  Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

This verse tells us that if we’re going to live godly in Christ Jesus, we will get persecuted! And many times persecution is a whole lot worse than a physical confrontation!

However, the first person’s house couldn’t even be shaken because he was steadfast and grounded on God’s word. But not so with the second person, who didn’t take the time to ground himself in the Word of God.

You see, brothers and sisters, if we’re going to be victorious, we have to be grounded on God’s Word. It’s imperative, especially in this day and age, to be grounded, fixed, stable, and unmovable on God’s Word. That’s the only way to be the victorious, overcomers God has called us to be. His Word has never changed and has as much power in it today as when He first spoke it.

James 1:22 (KJV) 22  But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

We’re to be doers of God’s Word, not just hearers. That’s how we build our foundation!

Hear & Be Healed! [Divine Healing – Part XIII]

Luke 5:15 (KJV) 15  But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities.
Luke 6:17 (KJV) 17  And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;

One of the things I’ve learned about praying for healing for others, is that it’s not only prayer they need, but teaching. They need to hear what God says about healing so their faith can be energized to be able to receive God’s healing. How can you believe for God to heal you without knowing what He has to say about it? You can’t.

So, simply stated, this is what you must do:

1 – Hear & listen to the Word.

2 – Receive the Word into your heart.

3 – Do the Word and receive your healing.

Remember the woman with the issue of blood. She heard of Jesus and what He did for others. She believed what she heard and pursued after Him, reached out and took her healing! She acted in accordance with what she believed and received the desired results.

You can’t talk sickness, disease, and evil reports and expect to be healed. It doesn’t work that way.

Acts 28:26-27 (KJV) 26  Saying, Go unto this people, and say, Hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and not perceive:
27  For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

 

Notice that they closed their own eyes. Even though they heard the Word of God, they closed their hearts to the truth and chose to believe a lie. That’s what happens to people who choose to believe the doctor’s report and the naysayers rather than the Word of God and His healing promises. And each time they choose not to believe, they harden their hearts a little more, ’til they are so dull of hearing that they can’t receive God’s truth and be healed. [Note: If your faith is not developed enough to receive your healing, go to the doctor but keep confessing God’s Word until it gets in you in abundance.]

Remember, if you don’t do what you can do, you’ll never do what you can’t do. Your part is to study, confess, and get the Word into your heart where it can develop and manifest in your healing. When you speak the Word over and over, you begin to believe it. You don’t really believe it the first few times you confess it – maybe not even the first 50 times! This is believing with your head – mental assent, not heart believing.

But as you continue confessing the Word, it eventually gets down into your heart where you really believe and then it comes out with power and manifestation!

This doesn’t happen overnight, but it will happen if you’ll stick with it and not quit. Standing on God’s Word takes effort – lots of effort – but it’s worth it. Anything of value will take effort. God is always faithful to do His part and answer every prayer that’s prayed in faith according to His Word. Our part is to keep Akeeping on and not quit.

Galatians 6:9 (KJV) 9  And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

You are the variable, the devil is not really the problem because you can bind him and he has to flee. The variable is you. Are you willing to do your part? If so, the results are inevitable. Go for it and get your healing!

1 Peter 5:8 (KJV) 8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
James 4:7 (KJV) 7  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Matthew 18:18 (KJV) 18  Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Proverbs 4:20-23 (KJV) 20  My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21  Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22  For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
23  Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

Are You Being Robbed? [Divine Healing – Part XII]

Noise, noise, noise! Everywhere – noise, noise, noise! Everywhere you turn somebody is saying something, whether it’s the news, music, or social media. Everyone thinks they have something to say that everyone wants to hear! Not so! But they try anyway.

It’s been said for years that if you tell a lie gong enough, people will believe that it’s true. That’s the whole concept behind propaganda. So what do we do? What can we do?

Well, first of all, we have to be alert and discerning about what we hear and not be bamboozled by the “philosophies and traditions” of men which make the Word of God of no effect.

Colossians 2:8 (KJV) 8  Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

Mark 7:13a (KJV) 13  Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition… 

How does what you’ve been hearing measure up to God’s Word? That’s always the bottom line. God’s Word is the benchmark from which we are to measure everything in our lives. If you slack off, it won’t be long before the “world” and its evil ways will talk you right out of your faith.

If you keep subjecting yourself people who speak negatively about God’s healing, their unbelief will get on you and hinder or negate your faith. You have to guard you heart.

Remember how you got saved? By faith in God’s Word that what Jesus did was true and you accepted it by faith. Well, that’s how you are to continue in your walk – by faith in what God has said in His Word, not by what the world is screaming at you. The devil is behind all that because he’s trying to steal God’s Word from you so that you fail miserably and then blame it on God.

Colossians 2:6 (KJV) 6  As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:

What has God said in His Word? He said:

  • Healing belongs to you.
  • Deliverance belongs to you.
  • Prosperity belongs to you.
  • Protection belongs to you.
  • Peace, love, joy, etc. belong to you.

Yes they all belong to you but you have to receive them by faith. God says what He means and means what He says. He’s faithful, faithful, faithful!

2 Corinthians 1:20 (KJV) 20  For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

God’s Word is His Will! [Divine Healing – Part XI]

God is God! He’s exactly Who He says He is and He will do what He said He will do; He cannot lie! Remember, all the promises of God are YES!

2 Corinthians 1:20 (KJV) 20  For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

Numbers 23:19 (KJV) 19  God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
1 Kings 8:56b (KJV) 56  … there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant.

So where does that leave us? If God will do what He said in His Word, why does it seem so hard to get results when we pray? Good question. Read on!

God’s Word is his will and if we’ll stand on His Word, in faith, we’ll get our desired results. Everything with God works by faith. So even though God has promised us things in His Word, the only way we can access them is by faith.

Hebrews 11:6 (KJV) 6  But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

It’s not your prayer and fasting, Bible study, church attendance, or tithes and offerings that gets your prayers answered. It’s faith in God’s Word that He will do what He said He will do and that includes healing! That’s why I use so many scriptures in my blogs so that you know that it’s God’s will.

Healing is part of the Lord Jesus’ atonement – bought and paid for by His precious Blood. And as born-again Christians, it belongs to us just as much as the forgiveness of sins.

Isaiah 53:4-5 (KJV) 4  Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

1 Peter 2:24 (KJV) 24  Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

God’s Word is His will and His Word must be the final authority for all we believe and do! The evil report [of sickness and disease] is not the last report. Don’t ever agree with the evil report. God’s Word is the final authority and God always backs up His Word!

John 10:10 (KJV) 10  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Pamela

Are You Basing Your Healing on God’s Approval of You? [Divine Healing – Part X]

First of all, every one of God’s promises are YES! But without faith it’s impossible to get them to manifest in your life because God is a faith God and that’s how He operates.

So, if you think you have to do everything right before God heals you, you’re on the wrong page. God isn’t looking for you to add to what Jesus already accomplished on the Cross. That was a done deal – perfect and complete. Your part is to receive what He bought and paid for –  your salvation – which included everything you’ll ever need in this life. That means your healing was bought and paid for at the same time as the payment for your sins!

1 Peter 2:24 (KJV) 24  Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

Your faith – Rom. 12:3 – that measure of faith that was given to everyone at the time of the new birth –  is what you need to appropriate in order to get your healing! Faith is believing that what God said is true and then acting on it! It’s really that simple!

Romans 12:3b (KJV) 3  …  according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

And just where is this faith we have been dealt? It’s God’s Word – the Holy Scriptures, the Bible! That’s where God’s faith is and that’s how we develop our measure that’s been given to us.

 Romans 10:17 (KJV) 17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Our faith develops as we continue to walk in the light of God’s Word! The faith that God has given us is actually His faith and that faith is powerful enough to move the mountains in your life and that includes healing!

Galatians 2:20 (KJV) 20  I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Faith is like a muscle. You don’t get more muscles as you grow up. You simply exercise the ones you have and they develop into strong muscles. Yes it takes effort but it’s worth it. What you invest in is what you value.

Study faith. Read faith books. Listen to faith teachings. Become a faith giant, able to move mountains! You can do it!

2 Corinthians 1:20 (KJV) 20  For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
Hebrews 11:6 (KJV) 6  But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Mark 11:22-24 (KJV) 22  And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
23  For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24  Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Accessing God’s Realm [Divine Healing – Part IX]

Hebrews 11:6 (KJV) 6  But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

As you can see, faith is the way we please Gad and access His  realm. Or, as I like to say, the power realm! It doesn’t matter what we do if it isn’t done in faith. It does not impress God. And there a lot of people doing a lot of things that are not in faith, trying to please God, and then wonder why their prayers don’t work.

Since Jesus already the price for our complete salvation, there is nothing else for us to do. We don’t have to add to what He has already done. And sad to say, many are trying to gain God’s approval by their works.

Jesus has done a complete work and now our part is to receive what He’s already accomplished.

That’s how it is with healing. We can’t do anything to make healing more available than it already is. It’s already in the available in the spirit realm – the God realm – but we need to use our faith to access it and draw it into the physical realm where it manifests in our bodies.

1 Peter 2:24 (KJV) 24  Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

As I’ve said, the price for our healing has already been paid but if it’s not mixed with faith, we can’t get it.

Hebrews 4:1-2 (KJV) 1  Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.
2  For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

As you see, the Israelites didn’t profit from God’s Word because they didn’t mix faith with it. And it’s the same with us. We must believe that what God has said in His Word, He means. And then we need to stand on that Word and believe that it will work for us. That’s how we mix faith with His promises.

God Absolutely Wants to Heal You! [Divine Healing – Part VIII]

Before I get into this blog, let me say that even though God absolutely wants to heal you, He is not the variable – you are!

Acts 10:34 (KJV) 34  Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
Romans 2:11 (KJV) 11  For there is no respect of persons with God.
Ephesians 6:9 (KJV) 9  And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.

As you can see, God is not respecter of people and what He’s done for one, He can do for others, if they’ll believe and receive. Remember, it’s not God Who’s the variable – it’s us! In fact, it’s not even the devil because we can bind him and he must flee.

James 4:7 (KJV) 7  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Now, even though God is not a respecter of people, that He’s not preferring one over another, He is a respecter of faith. And those that operate in faith in His Word are the ones who get results. In this case, it’s healing.

Hebrews 11:6 (KJV) 6  But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Here we see that if we walk in and by faith, we’re rewarded with results! Sound good to me! How ‘bout you?

So, just what is this faith that pleases God? Simply put, it’s our part in believing His Word and acting on it. Or as Andrew Wommack says, “It’s our positive response to what God has already provided by His grace.”

Faith is actually what activates God’s power and brings the healing into manifestation. The power and healing are already available in the spirit realm. But in order to get it to manifest in the physical realm, we have to use our faith.

 

Everything about our healing was bought and paid for by the Lord Jesus. And it’s the height of audacity and ignorance to think that we have to add to what Jesus has already done by being sick and disabled! Our salvation was complete and healing was part of it! Glory to God!

1 Peter 2:24 (KJV)
24  Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

The Passover Lamb – [Divine Healing – Part VII]

[Exodus 12 – You can refer to this chapter.]

When God instituted the Passover, He told the Israelites to kill an unblemished lamb and sprinkle the lintel and doorposts with the blood to protect them from the death angel.

Now, they were to eat the Passover Lamb the night before their Great Exodus and in doing so, they were healed, every one of them from every sickness, disease, or infirmity they had. They also left with silver and gold that they got from the Egyptians.

The point I want to make is that in eating the Passover Lamb, they were healed! And that can be true for us because our Passover Lamb is the Lord Jesus, Who is the Word of God. Jesus and His Word are One and when we partake of God’s Word, we too can be healed of whatever ails us.

This healing of the Israelites is the greatest mass healing of all times – about three million Jews healed in one night! And you know they must have had a multitude of issues having been Egyptian slaves for 430 years.

The good news for us is that we have an even better Covenant based on better promises – ratified in the precious Blood of our Lord Jesus. There should be no sickness or poverty among us because Jesus redeemed us from sin, sickness, poverty, and spiritual death.

Your healing was bought for you at the same time as the remission of your sins. How long did it take for you to accept Jesus’ sacrifice for your sins? In the same way it should be just as easy to receive your healing! You heard, you believed, you received! Praise the Lord of Glory!

Psalm 105:37 (KJV) 37  He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.
Isaiah 53:5 (KJV) 5  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Isaiah 53:5 (AMP) 5  But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.
1 Peter 2:24 (KJV) 24  Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
