Have you ever found yourself talking to God about your problems? As if he doesn’t already know what’s going on. Duh! LOL!! I’ve really been on this point in my quiet time lately and as I was watching a sermon, the pastor said that God has provided the supply before we had the demand. And that thought stopped me in my tracks. Because it’s true. There is absolutely nothing that you or I will ever experience that’s new to God. And God has given us everything we will ever need. Our job is to take hold of it.
Let’s use healing as an example. Say, we have a migraine. If God said that by the stripes of Jesus we were healed, then we don’t have to live with that migraine. We don’t have to wait for Jesus to get back up on the cross and die again. That would be absurd. He already did it. He was the supply before we had the demand.
So, how do we access this healing? I’m glad you asked. We do what He told us to do. That migraine is our mountain in this particular moment. And what did The Word tell us to do with a mountain? He said speak to it.
“Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him.24“Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.” Mark 11:23-24
He didn’t say for us to talk to Him about it. He said speak directly to our mountain. And believe what we say. He’s given us the authority.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. 13“Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.…”John 14:12-13
This concept is so simple that we tend to complicate it. Because common sense says that it shouldn’t be this easy to be healed. And there are many who will have trouble receiving what I’m saying. But pray about it. Ask God if what I’m sharing lines up with His Word. If you choose not to believe it, then you will not experience what I’m saying. And yes, there are things that we can do that will short circuit our healing. But it’s not because God didn’t make the supply available.
As I was studying this lesson, I had a headache, and in that moment, I was unable to speak to it with any power. I didn’t believe it would work. So I took two aspirin. And I kept studying and went to bed. The next morning, I woke up with a pain in my neck and decided to exercise the authority I was given and believe that I could cast out my pain. So I laid my hands on my neck and spoke to the pain. I commanded it to leave my body and thanked God for the authority I’d been given to be able to do this. Then I twisted my neck from side to side and the pain was gone. Seriously. I praised God. Later that evening it came back. So I did it again. And the pain left.
If this is new for you, start small. Build your faith and your confidence in God’s Word. If you don’t believe it, it won’t happen. But if you do believe it… you’ll find a whole new world of authority in the Name of Jesus opening up to you! It’s awesome!
Be Blessed and Have a Fantastic Day!
