If God is who He says He is, and if He can do what He says He can do, and if He cannot lie, and His covenant cannot be broken, why is it that so many born-again, spirit-filled Christians don’t believe this?
Oh yes, they might say they believe but at the heart level, they don’t because their actions tell on them.
Many Christians live like there is no God because they do and say any ol’ thing they want, regardless of what God’s Word says. It’s like they got saved and stuck and never moved on in the things of God!
Take healing for example. If you want to open a “can of worms”, just bring up divine healing and watch what happens to the conversation. It seems they’re so ready to believe that divine healing is for us today until they get sick, or until a family member gets sick. This isn’t right – either healing is true or it’s not true. And if it’s true, then why don’t they go to God and stand in faith when sickness attacks? It seems that God is after thought!
I remember an instance at a Bible study when I mentioned how God delivered someone from cigarettes by standing on and believing God’s Word, and how He still does that today. The response was: but that was an addiction, meaning that God doesn’t deliver people from addictions. You just need to cope with it. Such unbelief!
Needless to say, I was not expecting a negative response but it did reveal to me that not everyone truly believes what they say they believe. No wonder they don’t get their prayers answered!
Brothers and sisters, God is on our side and He wants to show Himself strong on our behalf but He’s waiting on us, we’re not waiting on Him. He’s always ready to perform his Word but we have to speak His Word in faith and then it will do what God sent it to do.
God’s Word is not void of power to cause itself to come pass because with God all things are possible. In others words, with God, the possibilities are endless!
2 Chronicles 16:9 (KJV) 9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.
Matthew 19:26 (KJV) 26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
Isaiah 55:11 (KJV) 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Jeremiah 1:12 (KJV) 12 Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.
Jeremiah 1:12 (AMP) 12 Then said the Lord to me, You have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it.
Psalm 89:34 (KJV) 34 My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
