26 So Balaam answered and said to Balak, “Did I not tell you, saying, ‘All that the Lord speaks, that I must do’?”
Today’s Inspiration: God is sovereign. Balaam proclaimed that he would not dare curse Israel as he must do whatever the Lord says. Numbers 23:26. He further proclaimed that he could not do anything good or bad on his own accord to go beyond the commands of the Lord. If Balaam a prebeliever fears God as to abide to His word, how much more we as believers should obey. Remember God’s covenant to Abraham, whoever blessed him will be blessed and whoever cursed him will be cursed. Genesis 12:3. This is applicable now even to us as seeds of Abraham.
How important it is to be able to discern the voice of God! Today it is vital that we need to cling onto our faith. What you see in the natural may inflict fear in you but as the Body of Christ, fear or panic is a deception and not our portion. A time will come when the whole ordeal will be over and it all depends on the measure of faith. When God acts, He always catches us unaware.
What is God speaking to the church today? Even in Italy, doctors who believe in science and not God are getting saved in expectation that their life on Earth be taken away from them anytime. The fear of God has come upon them. God always has His timing to bring people to their knees. This is a season of Awakening to the wondrous power of God and a day of salvation.
Sometimes we wonder why God don’t heal believers, even those with gifts of healing. Mark 1:32-34 you look at the verses that all who were sick and those who were demon possessed were brought to Jesus, but only many were healed and many have their demons cast out. Hence even during Jesus’ ministry not all were healed. Galatians 4:13 Paul himself on one occasion suffered severely illness in the body even though he was used to perform amazing signs and wonders. He asked God to take it away but God said His grace is sufficient for Him and to take on His strength. I recalled once my mom’s doctor told us that my mom has no will to live or she could live another 5 years. She had never suffered sickness in her life except a boil at the last moment which was not properly dressed by my sister in law. This is because she was very heart broken when my dad passed on in his sleep a year ago. Sometimes people don’t want to be healed.
The other reason is the unbelief which Jesus rebuked his disciples. Unbelief paralysed the gift of healing and prevent the Holy Spirit’s manifestation. Some diseases are healed through forgiveness because the sickness was due to sins of the soul. I have seen many cancer healed after they forgive the offender that had caused them bitterness of the soul. When we don’t forgive, God hands us to Satan for destruction of the flesh. This is where you see decay of the body organs. It is God’s word that prevents it’s destruction. Psalm 107:20. Yet Apostle Paul says that we don’t look at the scans but we look at the spirit that must be renewed day by day. 2 Corinthians 4:16. V17 our sickness is achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all, which is our sanctification and transformation of our soul. It’s the childlike faith that touched the heart of God to heal.
When you are traumatised by fear of diseases, that fear brought forth the manifestation. So whatever you are facing, it is important not to have fear but faith, joy and righteousness in the Holy Spirit. God will not let you bear beyond what you can bear. 1 Corinthians 10:13. He desires to heal depending on the measure of your faith and your attitude towards Him. “Do you believe” is a question Jesus always asked when people come to him for healing? I did the same to many people in the Nations. Many were healed because of their belief. God be praised.
