When He can get you out of the way, then He has a chance!
At the age of 40, when Moses was cocky and over-confident and tried to free his people in his own strength, he was a big flop, and had to run for his life without them in a personal exodus of his own.–And it took God 40 years in the wilderness to teach him humility and utter dependence on God, until he no longer even wanted the job!–Then he was ready. He didn’t think he was able, and that’s good!–Because Man’s extremity is God’s opportunity. When you come to the end of your rope, then God has a chance to work.
He has to break us, and it’s hard to be broken. Sometimes it almost makes you feel like you want to die. But then you’re willing to live–for Jesus! For only from such death to self can life be born anew! (Jn.12:24,25)–”For it is no longer you that live, but Christ that lives in you, and you are now dead and your life is hid with Christ in God!” (Gal.2:20; Col.3:3)
So if you feel you are nothing and you’re no good–cheer up! When you’re so weak that you don’t feel capable or sufficient, then God has a chance to take over and do things to suit Himself. Only He can do it! Just give Him a chance! Let go–and let God! Surrender to Him today!
Isn’t it wonderful to know Jesus? isn’t it wonderful to be saved?
“He that is our God is the God of Salvation!” (Psa. 68:20)–Total salvation–body, mind and spirit. God has rescued us from the very gates of death and Hell. If you have received Jesus, the battle for your soul is won, and it’s a permanent victory of salvation forever! You’ll never have to worry about going to Hell or whether you’re going to go to Heaven or not. You have eternal life through Jesus, which is the Gift of God!–And you cannot lose it, for He will keep you! You are His!
God says He’s blotted out thy sins as a cloud, and as a thick cloud He’s put them behind His back, and will remember them against you no more. (Isaiah 44:22)–You’re all clean now, not dirty any more, no longer under the power of the Enemy. You can start life all over with the Lord, for you’re a new creature in Christ Jesus.–Old things are passed away and all things are new. (2Corinthians 5:17)
You’re born again, a new person, God’s new child!–With a new plan and purpose in living! He’ll give you peace of mind, purity of heart, rest of soul and happiness of spirit now and forever!–”My sins are gone! Thank God for peace at last! The blood of Jesus covers all my past!”
By His stripes we are healed!” (Isaiah 53:5)
What does that mean, “By His stripes we are healed”? The original Hebrew word translated here as “stripes” literally means “bruises, hurts, wounds”. Just as Jesus’ blood was shed for the Salvation of our spirits, His body was broken for the healing of our bodies.
Jesus didn’t have to suffer in His body for our sins. He only had to shed His blood and die for our sins. But to save our bodies it took His body. His body suffered and was broken for us in a number of ways.–The crown of thorns, the beatings, the wounds, the pain and agony, so that through this He could also atone for our sicknesses!
What is atonement? It means payment that has already been made. Jesus has bought our souls or spirits with His blood and we are saved, but He has also bought our bodies with His sufferings. So if you’ve been sick and you need healing, claim it by faith, and it’s there for you!
Do you believe that Jesus suffered for you, not only for your sins but for your body, for your sicknesses, for your healing? If so, you can claim the miraculous power of God’s healing! It’s yours already for the asking!
Let the Voice of His Word speak directly to you!
You can read a Scripture all your life without realising its meaning, until the Holy Spirit opens it to you and brings it to life! It’s the voice of His Word when He gives it to you personally or He gives it to you in an answer.–He brings it to life, applies it to a situation and it suddenly becomes alive! It’s no longer just mere words, or words that just run through your head, but all of a sudden you really get the point!
Have you ever read a passage and all of a sudden some verse or Scripture or word just hits you, “That’s for me! That’s the answer!”? God couldn’t have spoken any more emphatically if He’d yelled it out or screamed it in your ear! It may have been written for somebody else 5,000 years ago, yet, all of a sudden, it hits you personally. The Holy Spirit grabbed ahold of that arrow, pulled back the bow and cut you to the heart!
He only has to speak the Word and it can unlock a whole situation and give you the key that unlocks the door that reveals the whole Truth! If there’s a Scripture that fits the situation, He will give you the Scripture, the Word! He will use His Own Word to give you the answers. Thank the Lord for His Word!
