God Will Make A Way

CURVING ROAD WITH LIGHT - BRITHERE

God will make a way
Where there seems to be no way.
He works in ways we cannot see.
He will make a way for me.

He will be my guide,
Hold me closely to His side.
With love and strength for each new day,
He will make a way;
He will make a way.”

(Worship lyrics by Don Moen)


God will make a way for you to be healed. There is no such thing as God not providing healing for His people who turn to Him in trust. Many times, however, due to our own lack of complete knowledge of His Word, or our lack of complete submission to Him – and then our lack of faith that results from either of those two situations – we fail to receive that healing. That problem can be remedied, but in order to fix the situation, we must clearly differentiate between God’s doing His part and our doing our part.

God has never failed to grant healing to anyone who asked for it in faith, in the name of Jesus Christ, and with a pure heart. Jesus never turned down one single person who came to Him for healing, and He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Heb. 13:8). That being the case, we must never accuse Him of refusing healing. And, in truth, He cannot refuse, because 2 Corinthians 1:20 tells us that every promise that God ever made has already been answered ‘Yes’ in Jesus. So He cannot go back on that promise now. In fact, Isaiah 53:4-5, Matthew 8: 16-17, 1 Peter 2:24, and Galatians 3:13 all tell us that the work of healing and deliverance from every part of the curse of the broken law has been accomplished and completed. Your healing is already in existence and waiting for you.

So how do we get to it? That’s where we need guidance into the right path. God has made so many avenues available to us for accessing His healing. He responds to our own personal prayer of faith, agreement in prayer between two people on earth, laying on of hands, anointing with oil, our partaking of the Lord’s supper, the many gifts of healing, casting out demons (demonic spirits of infirmity), and praise and worship. Those are all ways in which He is willing and able to work independently of man’s system of medical science in order to put healing into our bodies and minds. Then God is also willing to work with us in combination with medical science if that is where the level of our faith is. He will move gladly and powerfully to bless doctors and medicines for good work in our bodies.

However, it is important to remember that God is a great believer in man’s free will, and He will not overstep the personal will of medical people to force them to do things totally against their will. So we need to bear in mind that when using medical science, we could also be limiting God’s hand by allowing physicians and drug companies to dictate what we do rather than the Word of God. That’s why it is important to pray and get wisdom and direction from the Lord when choosing a doctor or a medication. And, ultimately, we must be careful not to put more trust in those doctors and medicines than we do in God’s own Word. Should there ever be serious disagreement between man’s system of medicine and God’s Word, we must choose to side with God’s Word only.

Now siding with God’s Word is particularly crucial when we hear a doctor say that there is no way for us to be healed. We must refuse and reject that mindset completely if we want to free God’s hand to work for us. We must not believe the doctor when he tells us that there is “no hope” for recovery or that the disease or situation we have is “impossible” to cure. When a physician says such things, all he is really saying is that he personally does not know how to cure us. And if a dozen doctors tell us the same thing, then they are saying the human medical personnel have not figured out how to cure that problem yet. But, dear sick one, that does not mean there is no cure. Jesus Christ is the cure, and He finished the work thousands of years ago.

And just think: even throughout Old Testament years, God’s people received healing when they turned to God for it and obeyed His Word, and that blessing was based on their faith in only the PROMISE of healing – not the completed work. We now have a completed promise in Jesus’ completed work.

So quit looking at a man-made diagnosis or prognosis. Instead look at God’s prognosis: “We are healed by the stripes of Jesus.” When Hezekiah was king of Judah, his nation was surrounded by three great enemy armies, and the king of one those nations sent him a threatening letter. It would have been enough to frighten almost any leader because it recounted all the nations these armies had successfully defeated and subdued.

The situation looked absolutely hopeless, but Hezekiah took the letter (the report) and went into the temple and laid it before the Lord, calling on Him to save them. After he prayed, the prophet Isaiah was sent to Hezekiah to give him God’s report: he announced that the Lord would defeat the enemy armies and that not one arrow shot toward Hezekiah’s people would even land in the city. Hezekiah turned his face from that bad report and looked at God’s report instead, and God gave them a mighty victory by sending an angel to destroy the thousands of enemy soldiers during the night. (2 Kings 19).

Another time, Hezekiah was so sick that even the prophet told him that he would die. There was no hope. But again Hezekiah turned his face from that hopeless situation and looked to God alone, crying out to him for mercy and a longer life. God heard Hezekiah’s prayer – not because Hezekiah was so good – but because he put all of his trust in God’s mercy and faithfulness. God healed Hezekiah, and gave him 15 more years of life. (2 Kings, 20).

The list of others who faced totally “hopeless, incurable” situations and diseases is exceedingly long. And every one of them received deliverance and healing from the Lord. God’s Word is full of such examples, and of God’s faithfulness to prove that nothing is impossible with Him. You can get into the Word and meet these people for yourself, or if you already know about them, you can read their testimonies again and let them create new faith in you.

And, in fact, dear sick one, you must get into that Word and read these passages for yourself, because if we are going to put our trust in the Lord and His Word for our healing, we have to KNOW His Word and believe it. If you find yourself in a position of not believing His Word, then your solution is to get into that Word, with an open, honest heart, and read it and absorb it until it has created faith in you. It will create faith, because God tells us that faith comes from the Word of God. (Romans 10:17).

Moreover, it’s that Word that reveals to us many avenues to receiving healing from the Lord. God’s Word offers us the avenues of personal prayer, agreement with others, anointing with oil, partaking of the Lord’s Supper, praying for others, and numerous other acts of faith what will help us receive our healing from Him. We must each feed on that Word and give God time and attention so he can lead us — through His Word — to the best pathway for each of  us at any given time. And, in fact, our Radical About Jesus YouTube channel has video lessons on many of those pathways to healing that you may find helpful as well.

Now, before I leave you to study that Word on your own, let me also point you to Psalm 25. In that one Psalm alone, there are several passages that tell us clearly that God wants to make HIS WAY into all good things known to us. Let’s look at all the encouragement in this one Psalm:

Verses 4-5: “Make me know Thy WAYS, O Lord: Teach me Thy PATHS. Lead me in Thy truth and teach me, For Thou art the God of my salvation.”

Verses 8-9: “Good and upright is the Lord; Therefore He instructs sinners in the WAY. He leads the humble in justice, and He teaches the humble His WAY.”

Verse 10: “All the PATHS of the Lord are lovingkindness and truth to those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.

Verse 12: “Who is the man who fears the Lord? He will instruct him in the WAY he should choose.”

And remember, beloved reader: Jesus Himself, who is the same yesterday, today, and forever, tells us in John 14: 6, “I am the WAY, the truth, and the life.” The path (the way) to everything good that God has for us is provided by Jesus. Set your eyes, your mind, and your whole heart on Jesus, and He will show you the WAY that you can be healed.

What God Can Do With a Rod He Can Do With You.


ROD FROM WEBSITEWhen the Lord, Jehovah, called Moses to go to the people of Israel and announce to them that God was ready to set them free from slavery, Moses insisted that they would not believe him. So God gave him a number of signs to perform before the people as evidence that God was indeed miraculously working with Moses.

We want to take a close look today at the first sign: “And the Lord said unto him [Moses], ‘What is that in thine hand?’ And he said, ‘a rod.’ And He said, ‘Cast it on the ground.’ And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it. And the Lord said unto Moses, ‘Put forth thine hand, and take it by the tail.’ And he put forth his hand and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand.” (Exodus 4:2-4).

Our focus in this lesson is not particularly on Israel’s deliverance from Egyptian bondage, but rather on God’s ability to do what He did to that wooden rod. This event carries great significance for us when we are seeking to believe the Lord for healing of our physical bodies. We are spiritual beings living in physical bodies, and when we have a problem in that physical body, we need to have something physical changed. Because we are seeking that change from a Spirit God, we sometimes find it hard to comprehend His ability to make those changes without using any physical instruments or medications that we can relate to with our five senses.

But let’s look at what He did to this rod. It was a solid, extraordinarily sturdy piece of wood, undoubtedly several feet long. Moses used it for a great many things during his shepherding years and then throughout the journey from Egypt to Canaan. It was real wood, and it was strong enough to serve him with no defects for well over 40 years. Yet by one simple act of exerting His spiritual power, the Lord turned that solid, totally lifeless, piece of wood into a living creature, with muscle, organs, skin, eyes, etc.

Snake 1Now, this serpent was not a figment of Moses’ imagination or a mirage, because Moses was so frightened by it that he ran from it. But the Lord insisted that he pick it up, and once Moses had a grip on the serpent, it became a solid piece of wood again.

Now, we’re not talking about simply changing the shape or size of an object. We are talking about actually changing the very chemical and molecular structure of an object – changing it at the cellular level throughout the whole object. Something that was totally without life instantly became a living creature and then, by another act of God’s power, became a totally inanimate object again.

Once we get a clear picture of this event, we begin to realize just how easily that same God can change the chemical and molecular structure of any created thing – including the structure of flesh, of tumors, of diseased tissue, of abnormal limbs, of any physical element with which our body is impaired. God has no more problem neutralizing a huge tumor, or creating healthy bone where there is none, or replacing plaque coated arteries with new supple, pliant arterial tissue than He had changing a piece of wood into a serpent or changing a living being into a lifeless stick.

No matter what you are facing in your physical body today, do not limit God and His delivering, miracle working, healing power. He didn’t feel any strain on His power when He changed Moses’ rod, and He will feel no strain on His power when He changes the negative tissues in your body into healthy tissues.

And don’t, in your own mind, limit His willingness to do the work. If He was willing to do such an extraordinary thing for Moses, for no other reason than to provide examples of His ability and willingness to deliver His people — even before Jesus had died for them and given them His own righteousness — how much more is He willing to do as much to deliver the people His own Son gave His life for. The Old Covenant and God’s promise to Abraham were enough to cause Him to move in such creative power. How much more, under the New Covenant — with the finished work of Jesus Christ securing us a place in God’s heart — will He do equally miraculous works for us.

Is Your Situation Impossible???

MOSES RED SEA - cropped, widened

Do you find yourself in a situation that there seems to be no way out of — no solution — no victory??? Well then, it’s time to get excited, because the truth is that you’re in a very good place for a miracle. When the situation looks impossible — really impossible — turn it over to God.  In His mind, it’s already fixed.

The fact is that He has already created a way to make it happen. He’s just waiting for you to give him the green light to put His perfect plan into action. He works first in the spirit realm, because that’s the realm of reality. All things physical were created by spirit, and all things natural are constantly changing — especially when spiritual forces are activated upon them.

God always works in that same mode. He creates the answers we need in the spirit realm first, and our faith lays hold of them. Then by speaking and acting on that faith, we bring that spirit reality into our natural world. If we look at His Word carefully — especially during creation and throughout the earthly ministry of Jesus, we see that pattern of behavior repeated time and again.

So if it looks impossible — get into His Word and find the promises that He is the one who makes a way where there is no way. Find the promises that make it clear He wants us to have life, health, provision, loving friends and family, successful labor, peace, and joy. Feed on those Words from His heart until they create strong faith in your own heart; then turn your situation over to Him and believe you receive the answer. While you’re awaiting the manifestation, speak only His promises on the subject. Do exactly what His Word tells you to do. And watch the “impossible” become just another job well-done by Almighty God.

Simple Faith

LUCY & DAD W. CREDITS

Why not simplify your life and accept Jesus? He came to bring us healing, hope, and victory for life on this earth — and to give us a gloriously happy eternity with Him and the Father God. All we have to do is accept Him into our hearts. But He said we have to do it as a little child would.

When someone offers a little child a gift, that child doesn’t stop and try to work at making himself into a better person so that he’s “worthy” to receive that gift. No. A little child will just reach out his hand and grasp the cookie, the doll, the toy truck. Offer a little child a Teddy bear, and he’ll not say, “No. I’m not good enough yet to get a Teddy bear.” On the contrary, he’ll reach out immediately, grab it from our hand, and hug it tightly to himself.

So why do adults have the idea that when Jesus offers us Himself and all that He did to change our lives for eternity, He’s going to hold it all back until we clean ourselves up and get ourselves in good enough shape to “deserve” Him and His gifts? We’re never going to deserve Jesus. But if we’ll be like a child and just reach out and grasp Him, and hug Him tightly to our hearts, we’ll have all we need for this life and for eternity.

Faith is really very simple.
