Have faith and do not doubt

God is better than our wildest imagination about Him. It is His goodness to us to understand His goodness. It is the goodness of God that leads us to repentance.

We are born of God and we have His genetic make-up. We have sonship with God. The moment that we are born again, we become a full mature son and an heir of God. God sent forth His Son, born under the law, to redeem those under the law that we might receive sonship.

Our Father's house has unconditional love and bread enough to spare. It has everything that we need despite there being famine outside the house. We are sons of God and have a right to stand in His presence.

All that God has is ours. Let us inherit from our Father. We do not have to be smart or mature but we are an heir nevertheless. God leaves His inheritance to us even though we are not perfect because we are His child. If you want to see what God the Father is like, look at Jesus. Jesus is our example, our model and our older brother.

Is it God's will to heal everybody? Jesus healed everybody who came to Him. God's will is for everyone to be saved and to be haled. But it is a decision for us to take - do we want to receive? We must look to Jesus. We need to go to Jesus because everyone who came to Jesus was healed. Jesus did not force His presence on others. He that has seen Jesus has seen the Father.

It is God's will to heal everybody. Why then are some of us not healed? It is not because we have sin in our lives. We have forgiveness of sins through Christ Jesus. The problem is that we have doubt in our hearts. If we have faith and do not doubt, we will have whatever we say. Jesus said that if we have faith as small as a grain of mustard seed, we can speak to the mountain and it will move. We all have faith but some of us have doubt in our hearts. Doubt is something that we believe about God that is not scriptural. Believe that those things that we say will be done and we will have whatever we say.

Over the years, doubts have been planted in our hearts. The evil one will ride on the doubt and make us believe that we come under those categories of people who will not receive. These doubts, based on teachings that are not scriptural, will prevent us from receiving our healing. We forgive because God, for Christ's sake, has forgiven us. Do not disqualify yourself from healing. As many as came to Jesus, all were healed. Power went out of Jesus and healed all who reached out to Him. Healing is a gift from God, paid for by the stripes of Jesus.

Let us receive what we deserve to receive as a child of God. It is not something to be earned. It is not dependant on how good or bad we have been. God wants us to forgive, to have good careers and to have good marriages but it has nothing to do with our receiving from God. God does not want us to be sick.

We know how to give good gifts to our children. How much more will our Father in heaven give good things to those who ask Him? Father, I ask You for health, healing and wholeness.

The Bible is simple. Let us not complicate it. Jesus always kept things simple. The problem is that we have all kinds of doubt put there throughout the years.

The devil uses people to come against us. Do not fall prey to his tricks. Do not do the work of the devil either. We are called to love.

If we do not doubt in our heart, what we speak will happen. God did not send His Son into the world to condemn but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned. If we want what we speak to happen, make sure that we remove condemnation from our hearts. Some people try to use faith to bring forth something but in their hearts, they condemn (doubt). If we condemn ourselves, we will condemn others. Make sure that you remove condemnation from your heart.

Healing is in Jesus' work at the Cross. Our goodness cannot bring us healing and our wrongdoing cannot disqualify us from receiving healing. Clean living does not get us healing. We get healing because it is our inheritance. We choose to live clean and live holy because condemnation kills and unconsciously, we will still blame ourselves. God forgets but our memories do not. Clean living is useful to keep us in a place of rest.

Having faith and not condemning ourselves go hand in hand. The problem is not what we eat or what we do but whether we condemn ourselves.

He has crowned this year with His goodness and our paths drip with abundance. Amen!

Our Father is greater than any financial downturn and in His house, there is bread enough and to space. Praise His holy name forever!
