Faith believes, speaks and acts on the WORD!
When you need something from God, go to the WORD and find a promise of God that covers the need, believe what it says, and receive your answer by faith. Say, “It’s mine!”
Because you are a joint heir with Jesus, when you read His promises, remember that He is the WORD (John 1:1). It is the same as if Jesus were standing there in the flesh, speaking that promise to you personally. You are seated together with Him in heavenly places and are part of His kingdom – a child of God and the seed of Abraham through faith in Him. He has given you His promises to actively believe and receive, just as Abraham did and was blessed. Receive them. See yourself through the eyes of faith, receiving what you are believing for, and praise God for the answer. Act as if it’s already yours (James 2:18,20)
When you need healing in your body, don’t pray, “IF it be Your will.” God’s WORD in Isaiah 53:4-5 and 1 Peter 2:24 already lets you know healing is His will. He sent Jesus to the cross so you could walk free from sickness and disease. And during His earthly ministry, Jesus healed all who came to Him. Multitudes came to Him to be healed of their sicknesses and diseases. Not one was turned down because God was teaching that person something through the sickness. No! He healed them ALL (Matthew 12:15; 4:24; Luke 4:40; 6:19), based on the prophecy in Isaiah 53:4-5 spoken about the Messiah many hundreds of years before His birth (Matthew 8:17).
God’s WORD is His will – for everyone!
Not all will receive it, just as not all will receive salvation, though God has provided it for everyone (John 3:16).
Believe His WORD and boldly declare, “Father, Your WORD says Jesus bore my sickness and carried my pain. So I rebuke this sickness and command it to get off my body, in the Name of Jesus. Sickness, you can’t stay here. My body is God’s property. Based on Your WORD, LORD, I believe I receive my healing, now. Body, I call you healed in the Name of Jesus!” Continue to speak God’s healing WORD over your body, and spend time praising and thanking Him that His healing power is working in you mightily, delivering you from every sickness and disease.
Now act as if you’re healed!
Do something you couldn’t do before, by faith. Don’t be moved by what you see or feel, but keep God’s WORD in your heart and in your mouth, praising and thanking Him for the total manifestation. It was yours the moment you believe it, received it, and put corresponding action to your faith. Act and think healed by keeping your mind renewed with the WORD of God concerning your healing!
Abraham did these things and was blessed (James 2:21). To receive Isaac, “he did not consider his own body to be dead (when he was about a hundred years old), nor yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb. He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strong in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully persuaded that what God had promised, He was able to perform” (Romans 4:19-21). He and Sarah spoke their faith, calling each other “father of nations” and “mother of nations” (Genesis 17:5,16; Romans 4:17-18). As a result Isaac, the son of promise, was born to a ninety year old woman and a one hundred year old man. When God later asked Abraham to sacrifice his only son, through whose descendants God and promised that all the nations of the earth would be blessed, Abraham didn’t flinch. He knew God would keep His blood covenant promises and “make [Abraham’s] descendants multiply as the stars of the heavens” and give them the lands He had promised (Genesis 26:4). So he “offered up Isaac…accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure” (Hebrews 11:17,19). And he did receive his only son in a figure — Isaac was figuratively raised from the dead as a type and shadow of the coming Jesus — God’s only Son — raised from the dead for our justification!
Abraham had believe and received the promise of God with all his heart. He was fully persuaded that “in Isaac your seed shall be called” (verse 18, NKJV). He boldly put corresponding action to his faith in what God had sworn through the blood covenant cut between them, and God counted it to him for righteousness. “So from one man, though he was physically as good as dead, there have sprung descendants whose number is as the stars of heaven and as countless as the innumerable sands on the seashore” (verse 12, Amplified Bible, Classic Edition).
From the descendants of that child of promise came the entire nation of Israel and all believers in Jesus, the promised Seed (Galatians 3:16).
Faith believes, receives, and acts. God ALWAYS honors His WORD!
