God knows…but He wants you to trust Him. Whatever the problem, it is not too big for God.
I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?” Jeremiah 32:27
War, Crime, Worry, Jealousy, Sickness, Fatigue, Disease, Job Loss, Corruption, Forgiveness, Marital, Bitterness, Loneliness, Addiction, Humiliation, Shame, Guilt, Brokenness, Fear, Finances or even none of these.
When I was in the world, the people with a lot of experience would always say: “I know what I’m talking about…I’ve been around the block a few times.” A statement like that usually got people’s attention.
Ps 138:7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.
When I got a diagnosis of cancer and the doctor wanted to rush me into surgery, I was troubled. I was led to pull my medical records. I had never done that in my entire life. When I read them, I was devastated. I was upset. The report contained things that the doctor never told me.
1Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
I went home and I prayed…I was led to take the report and put it on a very high shelf that I could not reach. I was led not to think about it anymore. I told the doctor that I would seek a second opinion. He said that I did not have time. I began to spend time with God daily and read healing scriptures around the clock.
Ultimately I got 4 opinions in 6 months and in the end…I did not have cancer. The new doctor reported that it was the most suspicious tissue he had ever seen; but it was not cancer! Praise God!
During that time a peace came over me. I stared fear in the face and boldly resisted. My fuel was my trust in God.
Php 4:7And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Let me say to you today…that I never did what I heard someone else do in terms of their health experience or in terms of their reaction or interaction with a doctor. So, I am NOT telling you to ignore your doctor or walk away. Doctors have saved many lives. I am saying: “Get before God whether your weight is sickness, your family, financial, martial, spiritual or whatever it may be.
God would like to help you.
As a Prayer Intercessor, I can say that I have seen a lot. God willing, I will see a lot more. There is one thing that I do know: Most people have something bothering them or going on. Especially people who are believers. That is the weirdest thing to an outsider. They think we’re saying nothing will happen to believer…but the bible never says that.
God shows us our adversary in the Book of Genesis. He shows us how Adam fell. He shows us how we came under the curse and He shows us the long road to redemption. But, the greater pattern that I saw was that He is a rescuing God, a delivering God, a God who hears prayers, honors integrity, forgives mightily, a God who heals, a God who is in control, a God of the impossible who loves the righteous and abhors the wicked.
The enemy of the brethern (Satan) has studied your life and he may be trying to bring woes upon you. But, I just want to encourage you today to give God the weight. Oh yeah…He can handle it. Get out of His way, He doesn’t want to share it with you. He wants to take it all.
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
It’s time for you to act. It’s time for you to give it to God. Stop trying to do it on your own. God loves you so much.
