During this beginning quarter of the year, many people focus on direction for their life—where they want to be at the end of 2022, and that is always a great way to start a year. However, if you want to live out God’s highest and best for your life this year, the focus should be more on seeing yourself as God sees you. So, how does God see you? He sees you WELL, WHOLE, STRONG, PROSPEROUS, and VICTORIOUS!
I cannot think of a better time for you and I to make the decision to see ourselves as God sees us, leaving every hint of the curse behind in 2021, and pressing in to receive all God has for us this year.
As of late, there has been an unction to revisit the basics of healing, to stir up faith, and to remind people of what belongs to them. I’ll start by stating this truth…healing of every disease, symptom, sickness, and pain is something that BELONGS TO YOU. Jesus already paid the price for your redemption, and therefore, IT BELONGS TO YOU!
A couple of months ago, I ordered a gift for my wife. It was a very expensive eye cream made by the brand of facial products that she likes. She had asked me to re-order some of her cream she normally uses, and when I was on their website, I noticed this eye cream so I purchased it. Well, the facial cream came in, but the eye cream was not in the box. After looking into this, I found out the eye cream would be shipped separately. Several weeks went by, and still no eye cream showed up. Eventually, after going round and round with this company, she received the eye cream. But it took some persistence on my part to get it.
Let me ask you this…why would I be so persistent in receiving this eye cream? First, this was a gift I purchased to bless my wife, and it is important to me that she is cared for well. Second, I paid a lot of money for this cream…in other words, it BELONGED to me. Had it been something that did not cost so much, I probably would have let it go simply for the irritation it caused me when I kept having to call and email the explanation to the company.
Stop and think for a minute about the Divine life that Jesus purchased for you and me by shedding His blood. It was no small price that He paid, and as recipients of that Divine health, we must be persistent in obtaining what rightfully belongs to us. Luke 13 contains one of my favorite healing testimonies that took place during Jesus’ earthly ministry that illustrates this truth.
Luke 13:10-12, 16, And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself.
And when Jesus saw her, he called her to Him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.
And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?
Simply based on her covenant rights as a daughter of Abraham, this woman was loosed from her infirmity, and you, child of God, have the same standing with God as she did. Remember these words of Jesus, …ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, be loosed. In other words, she is a daughter of Abraham, and she ought to be healed and whole!
This testimony goes on to recount how the leader of the synagogue was indignant and proceeded to try and stir up trouble, which was quickly shut down by Jesus. Even today, the religious mindset will try to diminish or shut down moves of God, especially when it comes to the children of God receiving healing. Religion will teach that whether or not someone receives healing is contingent on God’s will or whims, and this lie was designed to disempower the church. Friend, it IS God’s will that you be healed, and at this point, the only will you have to deal with is your own.
Once you have settled in your heart that you desire healing and believe that it was provided for you, it’s yours! There could be some time in between receiving something and it manifesting, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s yours. Just like it took some time and persistence for me to see that eye cream that I purchased, you may have to stand your ground as well. But your healing belongs to you BECAUSE it was already purchased for you!
Whether you’re feeling strong and healthy or not, continually praise God for Divine health. Never forget that it BELONGS to you! If an attack comes that you weren’t expecting, recognize that God saw it coming long ago and already provided a way to beat anything that comes against you or your family. The faith cure has long been in effect, and as a result, you and I don’t ever have to live under the curse. Glory to God…that’s great news!
