Why is it that we, as humans, get upset first, and then look for the solution to our problems? Wouldn’t it be wiser to go to the solution and then rest in that? The answer, of course, is yes!
So, where are these “solutions” that we have available to us? You guessed it – God’s Word! Why would our heavenly Father, Who loves us with an everlasting love, expect us to go through this life on planet earth, left to our own devices and solutions? He wouldn’t and He hasn’t. Everything we’ll ever need to be successful and victorious has already been provided for us.
Yes, God has so graciously provided for our every need in His Word. That’s His part. Our part is to receive that Word and walk in it. Let me give you a few examples:
For our sins, He bore them on the Cross.
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.
For sickness, He has already healed us by the stripes of Jesus.
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.
1 Peter 2:24b (KJV) 24 … by whose stripes ye were healed.
Mark 16:18 (KJV) 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
For poverty, Jesus became poor so that we might become rich.
2 Corinthians 8:9 (KJV) 9 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
Psalm 84:11 (KJV) 11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
Matthew 6:33 (KJV) 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Mark 11:23-24 (KJV) 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.
Philippians 4:19 (KJV) 19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
For deliverance, He has given us His Name so that we can resist the devil and he will flee.
James 4:7 (KJV) 7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Philippians 2:9-10 (KJV) 9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
John 14:13-14 (KJV) 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. [The word ask means demand. We demand the devil to leave in the Name of Jesus.]
For spiritual death, He has given us eternal life through the Lord Jesus.
John 3:3 (KJV) 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
John 1:12 (KJV) 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Romans 10:9-10 (KJV) 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
We have the Blood of Jesus, the Name of Jesus, the faith of Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the whole armor of God, and the angels. Plus all of Heaven backs us when we stand on the Word of God in faith and declare His truth over every situation.
Hebrews 13:5b (KJV) 5 … I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
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?
