Believe

For quite some time now the Lord has been bringing my attention to the word 'believe'.  I have mentioned in my previous posts that I believe that the Lord has told me that He will heal me completely of the sickness that has been in my body for well over twenty years now, and how He spoke this to me by bringing to my attention the words in Psalm 103 vs 2 and 3 
'Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all His benefits - who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases'.


I have shared on my blog how the Lord revealed to me that His grace was sufficient for me, and how He confirmed this at various times.  What has come into my mind recently is the question of 'belief ' itself.  Jesus says in Mark ch. 9 v.23 b that 'all things are possible to him that believes.'  If I say 'I believe' do I really believe that what has been spoken to me will really happen?  And yet, just like the man in Mark ch. 9 v. 24b, I can say to the Lord 'I do believe, help me overcome my unbelief.'  It has been brought to my attention recently the story of Abraham, how Abraham believed God above all what his eyes, ears and carnal mind told him, and also a little song that I wrote quite a few years ago that I don't seem to be able to stop singing in my mind lately.

  
We are told in Hebrews ch. 13 v.8 that 'Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever'.  I am also told in John 1 v.1 that Jesus is the word of God, so that 'word' is the same yesterday and today and forever.  The Holy Spirit has merely been bringing my attention to this fact and so I say 'Yes, I believe that God (the God whose grace has been sufficient for me for over twenty years) is now going to heal me from this disease'.  I say this because God, the God with whom all things are possible,  says this.'  1 Corinthians ch.1 25 a states 'For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom.'



The song that I wrote many years ago is my declaration of this:-

You say You love me
You say all things are possible with You
You say You'll heal me
that every word You've spoken will come true
Now my heart has wings, and my spirit sings
Lord I do believe, and I receive Your miracle
