Faith for Healing – Part XVI

God wants to heal YOU!

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.

God’s kingdom rests entirely on the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ and His provision for us. It’s not based on our good efforts. It’s based on our walking by faith in what He has done – believing and receiving. It’s a done deal!

We need to enter into the rest that God has provided by ceasing from our own works of trying to get God’s approval, but rather relying on what Jesus has done.

Notice in the above scripture that the Word preached did not profit them because they didn’t mix faith with it. The Word was true but not to them because they refused to be persuaded that what God had said was what He would do.

It’s the same with us today. If we want the promises of God to manifest in our lives, we must mix faith with our prayers. God’s promises don’t happen automatically just because we confess them once or twice. Nor do they happen just because it’s God will for us. It’s not a matter of what God can do but on what we can believe and receive!

Our believing has to be mixed with faith in God’s Word and faith that He will do what He said He would do. He’s a Rewarder. He knows what He’s doing and we honor Him by believing His Word.

Hebrews 11:6 (KJ 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.
