13 “TThrough God we will do valiantly, for it is He who shall tread down our enemies..
Today’s Inspiration: With God we will gain victory and He will trample down our enemies. Psalm 108:13. Whatever we do, we need to partner the Holy spirit who knows all our needs to triumph. Our first criteria is to be a true worshipper, worshipping in spirit and in truth. This is the first commandment of Moses under Mosaic covenant. Through worship, we are refreshed and assured of our position in Christ. Through worship, our passion for His Son arises and usher in His glory. Through worship strongholds are broken. Battles are won and cities are taken.
Through worship our faith is enhanced. Our thoughts became God’s thoughts. We are able to come to God with childlike faith with our petition. Jesus said unless we have the faith like a child who placed their full trust in Him, we will not enter the Kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbled himself like the child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. V4. The Cananite woman’s request was granted because of her persistent faith. She was willing to receive the crumbs of healing as she knew even if Jesus gives to her the crumbs of His word her daughter will be healed. Matthew 15:28. This is in line with what Jesus says in Matthew 17:20 that even faith as small as a mustard seed can move mountains.
When the tree does not bear fruit, Jesus cursed it and it died. Mark 11:20-21. He was illustrating a point that our mouth is prophetic. We are to be like Him. Apostle Paul mentions that we can call forth anything which we don’t have or are persevering for it into existence. Roman’s 14:17. How powerful our words can be! Sickness and diseases are not from God. Hence whatever is not planned by or Heavenly Father, we can uproot it by professing that whatever is not planted by our heavenly father will be uprooted from our spirit and soul. Matthew 15:13. We have to uproot sickness of the heart like our doubt, our fear, our grief, our inferiority, our shame, our insecurity, our defilement, our anger, our grief whatever they maybe and as they are uprooted, our sickness withered away.
Jesus again elaborated a point that it depends on our belief. We are to have utmost faith in God. As long as we have no doubt but believe totally from our heart that whatever we declare according to His promises, will happen, it shall be. Mark 11:23. He also emphasised that whatever we ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Faith in God and forgiveness unlocks answers to what we are going through. V24-25. When you believe you see His glory. John 11:40. David says he prayed and God heals him. Psalm 30:2. This is belief. Even in our prayer we should thank God for healing. By so doing, we believe He is behind the scene working things out for us for His glory.
Jesus has authority in heaven and earth. We should commit ourselves to Him. By so doing we are subject to His will and not our will. When we commit our will to Him, we are aligning to His will and allow Him to do what is best for Him. By His sovereignty, He performs miracles at the twelfth hour.
His words are powerful and eternal. His promises are yes and amen. Heaven and earth will pass away but His words will not pass away. Mark 13:41.
To God be the glory for His truths that set us free. John 8:32.
