We are always saying how big our God is, how awesome God is, and when we get a cold, or virus, we say we are healed in Jesus name, and we receive our healing. THEN, let a doctor tell you that there is something more dramatic going on, let them use the "C" word, in referring to us, and BOOM, we fall apart. We start wringing our hands, LORD, what am I going to do? LORD, how am I going to get through this?
First of all, how fickle is our faith? Why do we think God can heal a cold, but He can't heal something like cancer, or other bad diseases? This is the same God that you say you believe that He spoke the entire universe into existence, right? This is the same God, that you say you believe that He created the moon, stars, sun, the firmament, the waters, in other words the heavens and the earth? This is the same God, that you say you believe that He forgave all of your sins, and that you will live in eternity with Him one day, right?
Then why do we put Him in a box when someone says the "C" word. Why do we think a word is bigger than God? You see when someone says the "C" word, they give life to that word immediately and they blow it up so big, that they think God, Himself has no control over it. If you believe that God, Himself made you, then why in the world would you not believe that He has the power to take something out of you, that does not belong there in the first place. We need to magnify God to what His word says He is, instead of what our little minds are trying to make Him out to be.
Someone shared with me, that when they were faced with a bad situation, they were trying to let fear slip in, and then God showed them, that fear will sneak in and steal the word, steal your victory from you, but Jesus says, He did not give you the spirit of fear, but of power, peace and a sound mind. You can not have a sound mind, peace or power if you have fear in your life. So when the enemy tries to rear its ugly head and give you fear over your situation, then you need to immediately with Faith, speak the word of God over your situation. Remember to put the word of God on your situation. Now, the enemy has to flee. That does not mean that he will not try to creep back into your thought life, but you have to stop him immediately when he tries to creep in and rebuke him out of your mind, Jesus did not leave you with a sound mind just so the enemy could come and disturb it with doubts. The Lord tells us, that we have authority over the enemy and that nothing by any means shall hurt you.
Luke 10 v 19...."Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you."......
Notice, He said, ALL the power of the enemy, and NOTHING shall hurt you.
We need to quit putting limits on what God can do. He did not in His word, say well, I can heal this or that, or I can do this or that. NO, He said you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Not just some of the little insignificant things, but ALL things.
Read Mark 2 vs 8-12....But immediately, when Jesus perceived in His spirit that they reasoned thus within themselves, He said to them, "Why do you reason about these things in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, 'Your sins are forgiven you,' or to say, 'Arise, take up your bed and walk'? But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins".. HE said to the parlytic, "I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house." Immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went out in the presence of them all, so that all were amazed and glorified God, saying, "We never saw anything like this!"......
Jesus is probably thinking, where do you base your beliefs? Why is this easy to believe, but not all that I say? What kind of faith do you have in the word of God? Do you believe the entire book, or just what is easy for you to believe?
One of my favorite passages in one of my books I have is
That which God has not planted is dissolved and rooted out of my body in JESUS' name. 1 Peter 2:24 is engrafted into every fiber of my being and I am alive with the life of God. (Mark 11:23, John 6:63)
1 Pet 2 v 24....who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness, by whose stripes you were healed.....
Mark 11:23...."for assuredly I say unto you, whoever says to this mountain, be removed and be cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says".............
John 6:63...."It is the Spirit who gives life, the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life"........
So, no matter how big you think your problem is today, first of all, put it in the right perspective, it is not bigger than GOD! AMEN!
I hope this blesses someone as much as it has me today.
Love you all and God bless you
