Getting Answered Prayers

24 May

How many people today even in churches appear to be avoiding the Truth?
Which is really in essence condemning something before they have the opportunity to fully investigate the facts and in our case investigate the facts through the lens of the Holy Bible.
For example trying to explain to someone who is having health issues that the Bible tells us there is most likely a connection to some generational sins that have not been repented and dealt of, or some individual sins like entertaining a spirit of bitterness and fear, which is opposite faith and for whatsoever is not of faith is sin. (Romans 14:23)

We are actually just a bunch of chemicals supernaturally strung together as the Lord created us in this life. We also understand now that our thought life has a great deal to do with our overall well being. This is not mind over matter, it is simply obeying the Word of God. That medical research and science has confirmed 80% to 95% of all the illnesses that plague us today are a direct result of our thought life. Keeping in mind this is the reason the Lord told us all along to take every thought captive to Christ, because he loves us and wants us to understand what we think about affects us not just emotionally but physically. ( 2 Corinthians 10:5)

How often have we tried to explain what the Lord has said about blessings and curses to someone who has been programmed to believe the report of their doctor instead of the report of the Lord? “As a man thinketh so he is.”
Ignorance is not a blessing and we are encouraged of the Lord to be like the Berean’s and search the Scriptures to see whether these things be so.
Acts 17:11,” These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”
I am at times perplexed how some people will tell me they believe God still heals today, but then convey the idea that he is NOT apparently interested in healing them!  Where would such a thought as that come from? Considering not every thought you have is your own.
Rather then studying the Holy Bible to research what the Lord actually tells us about receiving healing and restoration they will look at their present situation and its as a spirit of depression and self -pity overrides and clouds their perceptions and understanding. They don’t seem to be able see and understand you must believe it to receive it without entertaining the spirit of doubt and unbelief. It appears most people think when they see it they will believe it. The Lord says believe it first to see it.
May I remind you the Lord said in Matthew 21: 21,” Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”
This is amazingly good news because the Lord Jesus has power to do whatsoever he said, and he promises the same sort of power to all true believers. For example how healing miracles were performed by the early church apostles and disciples? Just as today, people like the 70 disciples the Lord Jesus sent out two by two who came back reporting how the spirits had to obey them in Jesus name. Just ordinary people like us today filled with faith and supernatural power and baptised in the Holy Ghost. For example we read about Stephen in Acts 6:8,” And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.”
As we read in the harmony of Scripture here in Mark 11:22,” And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.”
So there is some things to consider here, if we don’t deal with the offenses first and forgive everyone including yourself that can hinder your prayers and ability to believe so you can have your prayers answered.
John 15:7,” If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”
Now clearly this is a promise, the Lord tells us “ask what ye will and the Lord shall make it happen. So could we say that getting answered prayers is really up to meeting the conditions and requirements of the Lord. In other words it is up to you as a child of God as to what you want and what you need. A true believer can clearly get what they want as well as what they need. Because we ought to want what the Lord wants.

What you think with your mind changes your brain and body chemistry.
It’s really more about your attitude and not your DNA that determines your perceptions and much of the quality of the life you live. Best to live a life that is glorifying to Christ. Hebrews 13:15,”By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of [our] lips giving thanks to his name.”

I pray the Lord’s supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of Agape love in the almighty name of Jesus/Yeshua!
