FAITH FOLLOWUP

Anxiety, worry and fear all stress out the physical body….. and the only really healthy long term solution is to find peace and contentment in Jesus Christ ….. God IS able to do the impossible and simply asks that we trust Him to do the best for us according to His inherent GOODNESS…. it is Satan and his demons who whisper in our ears that God will let us down and not do what we request of Him….. what are you going to believe ? who are you gong to trust ?

You need to realize that God IS GOOD …. no matter what happens…. are you going to put your faith in a demon or the Devil (KNOWN LIARS ! ) ? ….. are you going to put your faith in a “Doctor” (they mis-diagnose and “potshot” all the time) because they are fallible human beings with incomplete knowledge ?

If you actually THINK about it long enough you will realize that GOD is your only sensible resource….. and Psalm 46 tells us that “GOD is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble”….. it’s unlikely the doctor will be present at the time you collapse to the floor….. and the demons will rejoice….. so who will help you at that time ? who ?

I think it’s so sad that most people regard THE LORD as a LAST RESORT ….. after the doctor can’t do anymore for you….. then you go to Him simply because you have no where else to go ?

What about loving and serving Him when you had a CHOICE about what you were going to do next ? …. that’s what pleases GOD immensely…. and not regarding Him as any kind of “last resort”.

Unrighteous man is quick to make a mockery of “faith healing” and point to all sorts of people and examples of failure…. where supposed faith let to a supposedly “bad outcome”…… yet these same heathen people are exercising faith all the time and they simply do not realize it……. faith in “doctors”…. faith in “medicine” …. faith in “science”…. I want you to hear me today.

I can find just as many examples of where …. medicine FAILED….. doctors FAILED…. so-called “science” FAILED.

so where will you put your faith ?

the Bible tells us, Blessed is the man who puts his trust in the LORD (Psalm 40:4 and Jeremiah 17:7)

the Bible tells us, It is better to trust the LORD than to put confidence in man (Psalm 118:8)

so WHO or WHAT are you putting your “confidence” in today ?

Think about it …. and be wise

health

Your mind has an awesome control over your body, did you know that ?

You could be experiencing a pain right now… and there is NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU… it’s all in your head…. don’t laugh… because  MENTALLY you “may have turned to mush”.

So how do you know…. whether it is physical or mental ? …. does it matter ?

Physically, all you need is FOOD, EXERCISE and SLEEP… in the correct proportions… but this is only a general rule…. which GOD can override for specific occasions.

Mentally, you need PEACE and JOY ….. but how can you be peaceful and joyful when your life is falling apart ?

You need GOD…. that’s what you REALLY need…. IF you have already received His free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ…. IF you already have His Holy Spirit within you…. then the only thing that remains is to “walk in the Spirit” (Galatians 5:16)…..  this then IS the cure for ALL SIN in your life…. this then IS how you experience JOY and PEACE (Galatians 5:22-23)…. this then is the HEALTH of your body……  read Isaiah 61:1 and 2 Corinthians 3:17…. “Eleurtheria” in the Greek is translated “liberty”…..  the exact opposite of the bondage of Satan.

Do not listen to the advice of some Christians who will tell you that DRUGS is the way to go….  Exodus 15:26 says,  “I will put none of these diseases upon you, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that heals you”… Psalms 103:2-3 tells us that the LORD forgives iniquity and heals diseases…. James 5:15 tells us,”… the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him”.

My friend your COMFORT IS IN THE LORD…. IF your are dedicated to Him you need not worry about your physical ailments like the heathen do.

The REAL reason the heathen run to doctors and psychologists is because they are so SELF concerned …..  they want the health and wellness for themselves so that they may do what they want to do….. when the proper attitude should be towards GOD and not themselves…. believe me, God is well able to look after His sheep on this earth until He is ready to bring them home to Himself..

God will shield you from “unbearable” suffering, or give you the capability to endure it……  God will not “cut short” your life…. and as His child, you cannot die until your work on earth is done….. it is Satan and his demons who will try to kill you before your time because they do not want you to complete God’s work….. it is Satan and his demons who will wrap you in “suffering” and “pain” (whether mental or physical)…. YOU must RESIST in FAITH (James 4:7)….. and you must constantly claim, “all things work together for good to them that love God” (Romans 8:28)… you must also “take every thought captive” (2 Corinthians 10:5) (because it is in your thoughts, planted in your head by demons, that the damage is done)……. what I am saying is that the demons are POWERLESS to harm you, but if they can get you to think the THOUGHTS that they want you to think… then you will HARM YOURSELF in two ways:

1. Because your THOUGHTS have power over your body… “as a man THINKS, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7)

2. You will take your thoughts away from God and place them on yourself and on circumstances around you… ” you will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you” (Isaiah 26:3)….  the promise is to those that are centred on GOD and not on themselves.
