I believe destinies will be born in this event, so come, shake off everything that seems to hold you down and move into your God given destiny.
Today is the final edition of our divine health and healing series which we have been running since the beginning of April. Many people have been healed and saved and I give God all the glory for this. Today I want to share briefly on one reason people fail to receive their healing. There are several reasons why you may not have received your healing yet such as unforgiveness, bitterness of heart, and a few others. But the biggest culprit is doubt.
Doubt is a major tool the devil uses to rub you from the blessings that God has already given you in Christ Jesus. Before I go on to address doubt, I want to assure you that if you are truly born again, faith is not your problem because the day you gave your life to Jesus, God gave you a measure of the same kind of faith Peter used to heal the cripple man at the gate called beautiful. So As a Christian, faith is not necessarily the problem. As we saw last week, you can receive your healing no matter how small your faith is. However you have to use your faith. It is when you use or express your faith, that you take possession of your healing.
Doubt can stop you from expressing your faith and thereby keep you from receiving your healing. It is the devils tool for rubbing you of your blessings. The devil creates doubt by sending negative thoughts about the sickness continually to your mind. They are usually based on the way you feel, what your read, what you see with your physical eyes, physical circumstances and so on. These thoughts might be facts but I have come to understand that facts can actually be deceptive a lot of times when you are expressing your faith. The Word of God is truth and anything that goes contrary to the word of God is a lie. These contrary thoughts the devil creates in your mind are lies although they can be very strong.
Let me share with you 5 simple steps to eliminating doubt in order for you to receive your healing. It is the same step Abraham took to give birth to Isaac.
- Find God’s healing promise to you and meditate on it. 1 Peter 2:24 is a good place to start, because Jesus has already healed you
- Believe in God’s willingness and His ability to heal you completely
- Receive your healing by being fully persuaded that God has healed you and say it confidently. For example say with your mouth confidently, Because Jesus has healed me by His stripes I am completely free from every form of sickness. Please insert the name of the sickness in the statement.
- Thank God from your heart like he has already healed you. Give him glory for it like it has already happened. To do this, you have to ignore your feeling and every contrary report or thoughts and believe only what God has said
- Then do what the Spirit prompts you in your heart to do. If you are in a healing service, do what the preacher tells you. It may be to do what you could not do before or simply go to your doctor for another test. Whatever it is do it expecting to be healed. Once you do it in faith your healing will manifest.
Healing is not always instant.
Your healing may happen over a period of you practicing these five steps. So you need to resolve to continue in it until your healing completely manifests, because God has already healed you in Christ even before you believed it. I will like to invite you to the healing service of the All Believers Prayer Convention which holds on Sunday 27th April by 4 pm. I and other anointed preachers will help you receive your healing.
Jesus Christ is the healer!
BEFORE WE END OUR PROGRAM TODAY, I want to give you an opportunity to make Jesus Lord of your life. He wants to make Himself real to you if you will let Him. Say this simple prayer with me:
Jesus I know you are the son of God and you died for my sins. Today I give you my life, take me and change me. Be the Lord of my life. Thank you Lord, for I am now yours!
If you sincerely made that prayer from your heart, you are now a child of God and have started the journey of a fruitful life. Join a Bible believing Church that will help you grow in God. If you reside in Enugu city feel free to visit us at The Cornerstone Church, Trans-Ekulu, we will be glad to have you.
