Behind a closed door, with a thankful heart and pen in hand, ask yourself “What do I already have?” In the quiet, when inspiration begins to pour in, write it down. Allow God to reveal in you what He has already done, and all that He has equipped you to do on earth. Now then, think about all that you wrote down, and all that you already have. Now consider how God intended you to utilize the gift of faith in what Jesus has already provided. “For in Him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily” Colossians 2:9 This Scripture is talking about the whole fullness of deity which dwelt among us as the person of Jesus. This truth does not make us equal with Christ, but just as Jesus promised “And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Advocate (Helper, Counselor) to help you and be with you forever.” John 14:16 NIV Our Father kept His promise and sent the Holy Spirit, our Advocate who intercedes on our behalf. 10 Reasons It’s Better to Have the Holy Spirit. Published on: Jul 8, 2022 by Andrew Wommack. “Have you ever felt like it would be easier if Jesus were right there next to you? Well, Jesus Himself said we have something better—the Holy Spirit. And having the Holy Spirit is better than having Jesus here in His physical body. Read John 16:7. How can we better understand the ministry of the Holy Spirit? First, place a HIGH value on what Jesus said about the Holy Spirit. AGREE with ALL of what the Bible teaches. Expect significant growth in your walk with the Lord. • Jesus lives in all born-again believers by the Holy Spirit. • When you were born again, mankind’s sinful nature was taken out of you and replaced with God’s nature. • The indwelling Spirit should be like a river flowing out of us. • The Holy Spirit will lead us into all truth.” Do NOT reject the word of God. Every word of scripture was God breathed and the Spirit of God will lead us into all truth. Our God is faithful to His word.
Does your current thanksgiving list include Salvation, Deliverance, Health, the ability to walk, talk, run, write, and work? All we will ever need to please God and prosper ourselves has already been supplied! Think about this – God is not creating more and more cows, crops, water or air every day. Our Father has done all that He said He was going to do. It was necessary that our Father send His son into the world — to save us from our unbelief in His plan and purpose for this life. It is time to take responsibility for our health, our finances, and shine our light in the darkness. Read the story about when “Elisha replied to her, “How can I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?” “Your servant has nothing there at all,” she said, “except a small jar of olive oil.” Elisha said, “Go around and ask all your neighbors for empty jars. Don’t ask for just a few. Then go inside and shut the door behind you and your sons. Pour oil into all the jars, and as each is filled, put it to one side.” She left him and shut the door behind her and her sons. They brought the jars to her and she kept pouring. 6 When all the jars were full, she said to her son, “Bring me another one.” But he replied, “There is not a jar left.” Then the oil stopped flowing. She went and told the man of God, and he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debts. You and your sons can live on what is left.”Then the oil stopped flowing.” 2 Kings 4:1-6 The blessings continue to flow as long as we provide the receptacle, a willing heart. — Being a disciple is God’s plan for every Christian. Walk in Privilege
“When we are at the end of our rope, we are blessed” When we come to the end of ourselves, only then do we become dependent on God. The coping mechanism in the USA looks good to those who are crossing the border, but in the end, if we do not teach a man to fish, instead of giving him a fish, we cripple ourselves. It is NOT God’s way for people to rest easy and file for unemployment, get on welfare, or to just to take a pill, and trust what the doctor says. As a child of God, we were not only given all that we will ever need to cope in this world, but God waits to astound our expectations, exceedingly. Andrew Wommack wrote a booklet “God Wants You Healed” and it is free. In it he admits not everyone gets healed, not every person will produce a field to harvest. But we all have the same measure of faith. Contentment in all circumstances is the secret that Paul understood. Sickness or health, young or old, poverty or riches — wisely he chose to be content in every circumstance. Regardless of our condition, like Paul, God is always with us. As we surrender to the glory of His presence, we will be stilled with a joy that rattles the watching world. “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.” Philippians 4:12 Dear Lord, forgive us for our pride, our spirit of dissatisfaction, and for being ungrateful for all You provided at the cross. Thank You Father for Your endless mercy and compassion as we grasp the package deal of our salvation. We are content with being saved from hell, healed, made whole ‘SOZO’ as You continue to prosper our souls.
