What are you believing for today?
Your adult children to prosper in life? To kick a habit? To pay off your debt? To be healed of a disease?
If you already have given your life to Jesus, all these things are already yours!
We have been grafted into the New Covenant (The New Covenant fulfilled the Old Covenant-that's for another blog post) by Jesus taking all our sins and punishment when He died on the cross. Not only did He bear all of our sins, but He was resurrected, and is seated in Heavenly places with God. What does that mean for us, as a believer?
It means that you are now a son or daughter of God! The bible says you are hidden in Christ. When God looks at you, He sees Jesus! Jesus was our sacrifice once and for all. No more sacrificing of lambs as in the Old Testament. He is our LAMB, our redemption, our healing, our Lord, our Father. His blood was payment for you to have all the blessings and promises offered in the New Covenant.
Because you are hidden in Him, the devil has no power over you. He sees Jesus, and runs the other way.
You might be thinking, if this is true, then why am I not seeing results in these areas?
Even though it's a done deal, and His promises are always yes, and amen, you do have a part to play. Your part is to BELIEVE and to RECEIVE the truth that it's already yours in Him!
The bible says that the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. Jesus is the Word of God! God loves you so much that He gave up His son to be your sacrificial lamb! He did it because He loves you! He planned this before you were even formed in your mother's womb!
The bible (which is Jesus) is full of God's promises to us from beginning to end. You can find Jesus in EVERY BOOK of the bible, carefully hidden away as a treasure that we are to hunt down, find, and receive. (More on that in another post!) Everything blessing that was promised to Abraham, is now for us! We are heirs to the PROMISE!
Whatever you are facing in life, Jesus said He would be there with you! There are promises in His Word for every trial and circumstance you are facing. He said there would be trouble in this world, but you are not going through it alone! Lay hold of your promises!
When hardship or cares come upon you, check your concordance in the back of your bible. There are promises there that you can declare over your situation. Jesus said to "cast your cares", because He cares for you! Whenever a care arises, CAST IT! Don't let it have dominion over your thoughts. As soon as you feel a concern, say, "Jesus take this care!" Look up verses and speak them over your situation.
God's Word is alive and powerful, and full of promises. Use it as the tool it was meant to be for you! He wants you to live right, but it all starts with right believing! Renew your mind, and start taking hold of God's promises for you in your life!
IT'S ALREADY YOURS!
