Today Reminder – 14 March 2014 (Day 10 – My Strength)

A reminder for today
My loved ones and friends stay away, fearing my disease. Even my own family stands at a distance. (Psalm 38:11)

Sickness can have a huge effect on us and our bodies. Sickness can drive out the last bit of strength you have left and leave you tired and exhausted. Sickness is something the enemy uses to try and bring us down. It is sad to think so many Christians think that God allows sickness into our lives to punish us.

And you know that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Then Jesus went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him. (Acts 10:38)

So there you have it. Very clearly stipulated that sickness comes from satan. If Jesus Christ came to redeem you from sickness and disease then there is NO WAY that God is sending you sickness or disease to kill you.

We have countless Christians in churches today that are taught the same things.  It is not God’s will to heal today!  God healed through the apostles, but that passed away when they died.  I have heard many ignorant men making excuses for why they have no faith, blaming it either on others or God.  They act like it was the apostles that were healing the people, when it was only God using the apostles to heal the people.  Has God changed since the apostles died or is He still the same today?  No God is the same today as He was yesterday!  Then there are ministers who are like this leprous man, they believe that God is powerful enough to heal people so they pray “Lord if it be your will, heal this man”.  What kind of prayer is that?  It is a questioning or questionable faith full of doubts.  These men who pray that way do not have the question in their mind answered to whether or not we can know the will of God about anything.  But, if that was true then God would not have given us His Word in written form.  We have the basis of proof of the will of God by examining the Word of God.  As soon as God wrote down His spoken words in a book form, He has committed Himself to do what He has said or He will become a liar.   Notice how Jesus answered this question given to Him by the leprous man and see if God is telling you right now what His will is for your healing.

Jesus reached out and touched him. "I am willing," he said. "Be healed!" And instantly the leprosy disappeared (Matthew 8:3)

My dear friend, God still heals today as He did all those years ago. Believe it! 

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
