Are You Ready To Receive Your Promise?

Today’s message is about us being ready to receive from God those things which He has promised us.

God has promised us many things in His Word. Also, many of us have prophetic promises that were spoken over our lives of what God desires to do. We want to receive our promise or healing. We KNOW that God will do it. But for some reason or another, many are not completely ready to receive their promise at this moment, right now.

For example, many people who are believing God for physical healing are delayed from receiving because they haven’t been ready to make the necessary changes in their lifestyle and nutritional habits. They may have to be willing to give up certain addictions that contribute to illness. Many people are miraculously healed, but then the sickness returns if they have not maintained their healing (i.e., if they go back to old bad nutritional and lifestyle habits, or allow doubt and unbelief to come in).

Many are in need of emotional healing. Complete healing comes when they are ready to forgive, ready to let go of their past, and ready to refuse to no longer be a victim.

Healing comes when they are ready to give their pain to the Lord. Healing comes when they refuse to no longer believe the devil’s lies that they are unlovable and unworthy. They have to be willing to refuse to no longer wallow in a spirit of rejection.

Some need deliverance from sexual addictions, but have to get to the place where they are totally ready to forsake it. Then God can bring about healing and freedom.

For some, God has promised to bless them financially, and He put business ideas into their spirit. But fear and uncertainty keep them from venturing out and entering into God’s promise. “What if I fail?” is the thought that plagues the mind.

For others, the Lord wants to bring healthy relationships that are God-ordained into their life. They want to receive but are having a struggle. There is a battle with feelings of fear, possible rejection, possible betrayal, and issues of trust and opening up to others. Perhaps painful experiences in relationships from the past, such as divorce, abuse, abandonment, disappointments, etc. causes one to be closed or have a very difficult time receiving.

Fear blocks faith from operating. Fear closes the door to receiving. Some are delayed from receiving their healing or promise because they have been a captive to the pain of their past, and living with a victim mentality for so long.

In John 5:5-9, Jesus came by the pool of Bethesda and found a lame man who had suffered with an infirmity for 38 years. Jesus said to him, “Do you want to be made whole?” Rather than the man instantly saying “yes”, he gave Jesus the reasons why he hadn’t been healed in the past. And the man was also stuck in the mode of blaming others for his condition. When the man decided to take responsibility for his own life and stop blaming others and making excuses, then he was able to receive his healing.

Often times we do the same thing as this man. Often times we justify our actions by blaming others or blaming our past for our problems. Even though others may HAVE done us harm and we were victims, God doesn’t want us to remain in a victim mentality for the rest of our lives.

Pastor Paula White often says, “A victim says: ‘I cannot get out unless you let me out’”. That’s too much power to give to a mortal man or woman.

Another reason why some are blocked from receiving their healing is because they are looking more to man to be healed, than to Jesus. Man can’t do much for you. Man is only the vessel, the instrument, in which the healing power of God flows through. Only Jesus can heal. The focus must be on Him.

What is keeping you from receiving God’s promises right now? Fear? Doubt? Past hurts? Unforgiveness? Bitterness? Unresolved past issues? Blaming others? Not ready to let go of something that is blocking you from receiving? Focusing too much on your past? Your past doesn’t have to dictate your present or future. God is doing a new thing. Now it springs forth.

Another thing that keeps us from being totally ready to receive is because we are familiar with the old, as unhappy as it may be. It’s predictable and we know what to expect. The new is uncertain. We have not traveled on the path of new before. There are so many “what ifs?”.

Also, many times feelings of unworthiness get in the way of us receiving. “I am unworthy to receive ______ because ______.” Those unworthiness thoughts are not of God. The author of those thoughts is the devil (whose character is that of lying, deceiving, undermining, cheating, killing, robbing and destroying). Unworthiness thoughts remain when we view ourselves lower than how the Lord sees us. We need to come up higher and see ourselves the way God does. We are royal heirs and heiresses of God.

Feelings of shame also block us from receiving what God has promised. Whether feelings of shame are the result of something we did in the past, or a result of dishonor and disgrace brought upon us by the actions of someone else—we must give it over to the Lord and receive His cleansing and grace. Believe what God’s written Word says and receive it for your life.

If prophetic words were spoken over you and it bore witness with your spirit and is in agreement with the Bible, then trust God to perform His Word. If God spoke some rhema words into your spirit of things He’s promised He’s going to do in your life, then believe God to bring it to pass. When I say “rhema words”, I’m talking about when the Lord speaks to you a fresh, “right now”, word directly through Scriptures that seem to be highlighted and grab your attention.

Your part to acquiring God’s promises for your life is to cooperate with God by doing whatever He tells you to do and by opening up your heart to receive.

May we prepare our hearts to receive all God has for us. May we make whatever changes God tells us to make, so that we are ready to receive.

It’s time to cross over into our promised land and receive what we’ve been believing God for. May we not let fear, doubt and other issues get in the way of receiving our promise. May we be ready to receive. Amen.

When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” … Jesus said [to the teachers of the law who accused Him]: “Which is easier? To say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, take your mat and walk’?

So he inquired of them the hour when his son began to get better. They said therefore to him, “Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.” So the father knew that it was at that hour in which Jesus said to him, “Your son lives.” And he himself believed, and his whole household.

1 Corinthians 12:7-11 The manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all. For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.

1 Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam (Jesus Christ) was made a quickening spirit. (There is quickening life in Jesus. He breathes fresh life into us and dwells on the inside of us through His Spirit. There is an impartation of life and healing that comes when the Name of Jesus is called upon. Being in an atmosphere of worship sets the stage for healing to take place, because worship invites God’s Presence. And God’s Presence is a quickening presence.)

James 5:14-15 Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And 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.

1 Peter 2:24 Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

1 John 3:21-22 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. And whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.

Part 8: Jairus’ Daughter & Woman w/Issue of Blood – Fear Not (B)

Jairus sought Jesus out to come to his home, lay His hands on his daughter, and she would be healed and live. This was Jairus’ statement of faith.

However, in the process of traveling to Jairus’ home, there was an unexpected delay when a woman with an issue of blood touched the hem of Jesus’ garment and was made whole. Jesus’ full attention turned to this woman, and He was patient as she told her entire story.

Meanwhile, Jairus’ servants showed up and told him the sad news that his daughter had died and to not trouble the Master any longer. Jesus’ response to Jairus was: “Fear not, but only believe.”

Fear is the opposite of the force of faith.  Fear tempts you to give up and back down, while faith always agrees with what God has said in His Word regardless of whether or not the promise has manifested.  Faith calls those things that are not, as though they already were.

You only need faith for what you currently do not see.  Once the manifestation comes, faith is no longer necessary in order to obtain it.  Once your answer comes, you need to remain in faith in order to maintain your healing or breakthrough.

When you are standing in faith for something, but then you are hit by storms and are tempted to back down, Jesus says to you:  “Fear not, but only believe (or keep on believing).”  God says to stick to your original confession of faith that you had in the very beginning when you first believed God for your breakthrough.

Maybe the Lord spoke to you prophetically and that word is backed by Scriptures because all prophecy must be in agreement with the Word, or the principles of the Word.  Revelation 19:10, in the Living Bible translation, says that the purpose of prophecy is to tell, or testify, about Jesus.  Maybe years have gone by and that prophetic word has been delayed from being fulfilled for one reason or another.  Sometimes we don’t know why there have been delays.

When deferred hope sets in, the heart becomes sick.  Then you are easy prey for the enemy to come in and severely attack you, because your defenses are down.  God wants to repair any breaches in the wall where the enemy has snuck in because Jesus is a mender and a protector.  And He loves you so very much.  He longs, even more than you do, for you to receive every promise He’s spoken and for every desire of your heart to come true.

Even if a long period of time has elapsed between the original giving of the promise, and the fulfillment, continue to stick with what God first told you in the very beginning.  Don’t allow the enemy to tempt you to start doubting God or speaking contrary to what the Holy Spirit originally said to you.  I fell into that trap of doubting God, off and on, for many years.  In my situation, I think that’s one reason my breakthrough was held up.

Also, unforgiveness, bitterness and harboring resentment was another factor in delaying my prayers from being answered.  My own heart attitudes were tying the hands of God from bringing to pass what He wanted to do in my life.  The Word says that faith works by love.  That’s a whole other teaching which I will talk about later.  When there are issues in our love walk, such as holding offenses and a root of bitterness, it really has a profound effect on our faith.  Faith won’t work right without love.

The devil wants to take things away from you.  But God is trying to get things TO you.  Jesus loves you so very much!  He has so many good gifts for you with your name written on it!

Fear not, but keep on believing is what Jesus is saying to you.

God said to Abram (before his named was changed to Abraham) in a vision:

“Fear not, Abram, I am your Shield, your abundant compensation, and your reward shall be exceedingly great.”  Genesis 15:1 AMP

God said to Moses, in Exodus 14:13-16, when confronted with the Red Sea in front, Pharoah’s army behind, and hemmed in by the mountains to the left and right:

 

  • Fear Not
  • Stand still (firm, confident, undismayed)
  • See the salvation of the Lord which He shall work for you today
  • The Egyptians you see today you shall never see again
  • The Lord will fight for you
  • You shall hold your peace and remain at rest
  • Why do you cry to Me, says the Lord?
  • The Living Bible says “Quit praying and get moving”\
  • Go forward!
  • You lift up your rod (symbol of authority)
  • Stretch out your hand over the sea (obstacle) and divide it (xref Matthew 21:21-22)
  • You shall cross over on dry ground (xref Isaiah 40:4, Luke 3:5)

 

Luke 3:5 (AMP)

Every valley and ravine shall be filled up, and every mountain and hill shall be leveled; and the crooked places shall be made straight, and the rough roads shall be made smooth.

Matthew 21:21-22 (New Living Translation) says:

21 Then Jesus told them, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don’t doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen.

22 You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it.”

I grew up in a very legalistic church that had the mindset that the word “anything” in Verse 22 didn’t really mean “anything”, but only some things (especially spiritual things).  But that’s not what Jesus said.  He said that if you pray for anything (and “anything” means anything), then it’s yours (if you have faith).

What is faith?

  1. Faith involves believing that you have ALREADY received what you prayed for.  In other words, you already placed the order and the transaction is completed.  Now, you’re just waiting for it to arrive at your doorstep.
  1. Faith also involves saying.  If you believe you’ve received your healing, then say words that are in agreement with that and also quote Scriptures (outloud) that pertain to healing.  The opposite would be to speak things contrary, such as saying that you’ll always be sick or that God let you down.
  1. Faith involves taking appropriate steps of action, by pursuing or preparing for what you are believing for, depending on what your situation is.  You have to be Spirit-led on that one.  God said He would impart wisdom to us liberally when we need it (James 1:5-8; James 3:13-18).
  1. Faith involves testifying what God did for you when you receive your breakthrough.  Your testimony encourages others to also believe for their miracle.  Also, your testimony causes you to keep your healing.  Sometimes people lose their healing when the devil comes in and whispers, “you’re not really healed … it’s just your imagination”.  Then doubt comes in, and not long thereafter, the sickness returns.  You have to be on the offensive when it comes to the devil because he’s a robber.

Psalms 107:15 KJV

Oh that men would praise the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men!

This same exact verse is repeated twice in Psalms 107:21 and 31.

Since this is repeated three times in Psalm 107, God is getting His point across to us.  He wants to show us His goodness and to display His wonderful works in our lives.

Lord, may we receive everything You have for us!
