God wants to heal YOU!
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.
Since it takes faith to please God, it’s absolutely impossible to please Him by what you do or don’t do unless it’s done in faith. Church attendance, Bible-study, praying, even giving tithes and offerings are not the way we please God and get Him to answer our prayers.
Yes, these are things we need to do because we love God and follow His ways, but the only way we actually please God is by doing it in faith. Therefore, everything we do must be done in faith. Otherwise we’re just spinning our wheels and deceiving ourselves.
As we’ve discussed in past lessons, faith is the way we access God’s realm – the spirit realm. We can’t work our way into God’s good graces. Jesus did all the work for us. There’s no more to be done. Our part is to receive what He has already done. The trouble with us is that we are so programmed to work, work, work for what we want. The more we work, the more we get. We even think we must work to gain God’s approval. Not so.
Jesus did a complete work. There’s no more to be done and it’s the height of ignorance, disrespect, and dishonor to think that we now have to add to what Jesus did to get God’s approval. Let’s rest in what Jesus did and rejoice that our sins and sicknesses are forever forgiven and paid for.
