Luke 5: 12-13. While he was in one of the cities, there came a man full of leprosy. And when he saw Jesus he fell on his face and begged him, “Lord, if you will, you can make me clean.” And Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, “I will; be clean.” And immediately the leprosy left him.
Don’t allow your circumstances or anyone or anything discourage you from believing today that “if God wills” He will change your circumstances, He will deliver you, He will heal you……… whatever it is, “if He wills” He can!
It is time to get back to believing God for the “unnatural”! We need to believe that He not only can, but if we ask with a clean heart and right motives He will move on our behalf! I cannot even begin to tell you how many times I have been praying for something and I have ended up discouraged because I have had other people tell me, “God just doesn’t work that way” or “life just isn’t that way”. We serve the same God we are reading about in the Bible and He doesn’t change! He is a mighty God and He is faithful even when we aren’t, He loves us and wants to show Himself mighty in our lives, how else will others see Him?
What we have to remember too is that God is working, His answers aren’t always ours, but they are best! If we knew what He knows we would ask for what He is about to do! When it comes to things like your marriage, you have to remember that God will not make your spouse change ~ we all have a free will! It is God’s will that your spouse change, repent and walk right, but he won’t make him or her, so pray for their heart and pray for the strength to move forward if they don’t! Everything inside you may be telling you that you can’t make it through whatever you are facing, but yes, you can! If you rely on Him to always do what is best for you and you rely on Him for His strength, you will come out on the other side better and stronger than you have ever been!
If you are ill, I would encourage you to seek some godly people to anoint you with oil and pray over you! That is what He tells us to do! Don’t hesitate to ask Him for His healing!
Let’s face it, God’s answer isn’t always yes, but it is always best but that doesn’t mean that His answer is always no! Don’t give up before you even give Him the chance to move! Just because you don’t see the miraculous every day doesn’t mean it won’t happen! Believe Him for more today, more strength, more favor, more healing, more wisdom and ask Him to give you the strength you need to move forward whether His answer is what you want or His answer is what He knows is best.
Remember: He healed the leper! He delivered Joseph from prison and put him in the palace! He didn’t just give Ruth a field to work in He gave her the field! He made the blind see! He gave Solomon more wisdom than anyone before or after Him, because He asked! He enlarged Jabez territory and blessed Him! He parted the sea for the Israelites! The list goes on and on and on and He can still do those things today! Is anything too hard for the Lord? Absolutely not and He is the same yesterday, today and forever! God loves you! Trust Him to see you through! Trust Him to move on your behalf! Trust Him to do what is right! The best is yet to come!
