I think sometimes we look at God and think He’s a Genie in a bottle that will give us what we wish for when we’re in a pinch. We use prayer as a wish list to make our lives a little bit sweeter. Instead of relationship with God, He’s simply becomes someone we claim to know and blame when things don’t go our way.
But the nature of God is love and the requirements to obtain that love is even simpler. If you’d like to know how, keep reading please.
God has done everything He will ever do for you. You heard me right! There are no new prayers to be prayed, He made provision for everything you will ever need. Yes, I said ever. When Jesus died and rose again the work was done. He forgave your past, present and future sins-you don’t have to keep asking!
When Jesus was beaten, by His stripes you were healed. That is past tense-meaning what’s done is done and doesn’t need to be re-done. Our job is simply to believe. You may be thinking, wait, that doesn’t sound right! It’s too easy! There must be a catch, something we have to do. But my friend, it really is that simple. The only thing you’re required to do is believe.
Acts 16:31 says it like this; “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.” That word ‘saved’ is defined wholeness, nothing missing or broken. It’s not just saved from sin, it’s from disease, poverty and anything else that was under the curse. Jesus did it all and it’s for you and your household.
Stop waiting for God to do something else for you. Once you believe and receive what Jesus did for you, it’s a total game changer! You’re now a child of God and entitled to everything He purchased for you. That means direct access to God at any time, day or night. He provides you with peace, joy and love like you’ve never felt before in your entire life.
Oh, it doesn’t mean you won’t have adversity. Trust me, your adversary the devil, he’s after you because he doesn’t want you to have what you’re entitled to. But read Ephesians 6 and learn what your weapons are and how to use them. Study like your life depends on it because it does! Ask the Holy Spirit of God to give you revelation on His Word so that you can understand His plan for you.
