God's Will

The time will come in your Christian walk that you will be called upon to step out in faith and really take a stand believing for a miracle. It might be that you have a troubled marriage, or failing career, lack of financial resources, or perhaps difficulty falling pregnant or even some serious health issue, and you will be required to stand firm in your faith, believing God for His mercy and healing.

There are many promises in the Bible to help and protect you in such times as these. All you need do is to claim them. Sounds simple and easy doesn’t’ it? Not so you might say. When one is confronted with trials and tribulations it is very tempting to give in or simply give up. God does not want you to do this! He wants you to take the bull by the horns (pardon the pun!) and grab a hold of your rights! You need to be adamant that this healing does indeed belong to you because you are one of God’s dear ones. You need to get past all the worry and the fear, and all the ‘so-called’ facts and believe for what the world says is impossible.

Many people spend their lives complaining about their problems rather than doing something about them. They tend to believe only what they see and hear but the truth is that we need to believe in the unseen in order to be blessed. We need to have faith. 2 Corinthians 5:7 NKJV says “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” Faith is about believing in what we cannot see and trusting with our hearts and minds that we can have what God has promised for us. Hebrews 11:1 says “To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see.”

When things seem out of control, you must rely on the promises of God to get you through. When believing for our healing, we need to find out what God says about a particular topic, and then apply it to our situation. We then must speak or confess God’s word over whatever is troubling us, and then affirm our faith by thanking God that He is looking after us. We must really believe that it is ours for the taking! Mark 11:24 TNIV says “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

When believing for healing in your troubled marriage, say, it is written in Matthew 19:6 TNIV “So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” When believing for success in your career, say, it is written in Deuteronomy 28:8 “The LORD your God will bless your work and fill your barns with grain.” When believing for financial abundance, say, the scripture says in Psalm 112:3 “His family will be wealthy and rich, and he will be prosperous for ever.” When believing for that pregnancy, say, the Bible says in Psalm 113:9 “He honours the childless wife in her home; he makes her happy by giving her children.” When believing for healing of sickness or infirmity, say, it is written in Psalm 103:3 “He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.”

These are just a few examples of the very many promises of God’s will for you. Believe me when I say that the Bible has many more. God’s word is there for us to study and declare for ourselves, in order that He may fulfil our destinies and His wonderful plans He has for us.

His promises are true, and his word in there to guide us through life. Psalm 119:105 says “Your word is a lamp to guide me and a light for my path.” God’s will for us is to live glorious and successful lives so that we may become a light for others on their paths. He wants us to be the example of what God’s will is for His children.

Be that example of truth for them. This is what is required of you in your walk of faith. Submit to His will by being the living proof that faith in God is indeed rewarded, and you will find yourself living the life of your dreams! What more could we ask for? Amen.

All glory goes to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit for guiding and instructing me with these words of truth. Amen

PS Isaiah 53:5 NKJV “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.” Healing is our right because Jesus paid the price for it when He was whipped and hung on that cross to die. So then, what are you waiting for? Claim it now for yourself and your loved ones! Amen!
