Why are we dwelling in self-pity when adversity hits us? Many of us do not know we are not supposed to have self-pity. We have to create in us a hope, a future, a belief, reverence our Creator instead of passively waiting in faith. Though the Bible says we are to wait patiently but what I learnt from the story of Job in Job 40:8 is that we cannot be healed on our terms but on His terms.
Till He has finished moulding us we still have to wait in faith and not in fear. Many are in fear because the problems have been there for a long time and still not resolved. This is the plight of those whose Cancer has spread and when the doctors give a death sentence. But I have Good News for you.
But I have heard stories of a sister in Christ who shared that when she was hit with Cancer she was ready to submit to God’s will for her life. Since it was not God’s will for her to return in glory, she overturned the doctor’s diagnosis and was redeemed from Cancer within three months. She now enjoys her latter life after Cancer better than the life before Cancer. Haggai 2:9 the latter glory is better than the former. Our finances belong to Him. V8 “The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine,” says the Lord of hosts. Job 1:21 “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return there. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.”
It is in His sovereignty to give good health, peace and prosperity and it is in His sovereignty to take them away. It is this declaration and praises that pleases God to finally honour Job’s faith and reward him with 2 fold restoration.
There was also another sister who told me that the doctor has given her six months to live in Ovarian Cancer and her family panicked. But she, after having come to accept Jesus Christ as her Saviour and Lord, she knew whatever it takes, she is safe in heaven. Lo and behold! Her thoughts overturned doctor’s diagnosis. She said to herself that God will heal her within six months and true enough! She was miraculously healed in six months and she has been sharing her testimony to the whole world ever since.
There is power in our confessions. God acts on your belief and your confessions. Our responsibility is to create life within us because if we are a believer the spirit of Jesus (the Holy Spirit) lives inside of us. So when we start speaking and see what the Word of God says the shadow of our thought becomes a reality. God is not a man that he should lie and He is not a respecter of persons.
So infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. There is healing power inside of you. Greater is He (spirit of Jesus) that is in you than he that is in the world (the liar – the spiritual force that says you cannot be healed). The Body can heal by itself based on your confession and your thoughts. It is about sanctification of the heart so necessarily required. Jesus said “Be sanctified by the truth.” (John 17:17).
What have been speaking to your life? Words are powerful as they are spirit and life. (John 6:63). Words transmit a spiritual force which we do not see in the natural. It manifests in the spirit and the result is transferred to the physical. When you are able to conceive healing in the spirit, your body heals.
