When Jesus was on this earth, He went about healing the sick, restoring sight to the blind, cleansing the lepers, raising the dead, and healing ALL whom the devil oppressed(Acts 10:38). He read from the book of Isaiah concerning Himself that He was anointed to proclaim good news to the poor, to heal the brokenhearted, to declare freedom for those held captive, and to proclaim release from darkness for prisoners (Is 61:1). No one who came to Him in faith ever left without receiving what they were in need of.
Hebrews 13:8 informs us that our Savior is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He never changes! Just like all who came to Him in faith when He was on this earth received what they asked for, if you come to Him today, believing that He will grant your request, you will receive what you lack!
God’s desire is ALWAYS to heal, deliver, rescue, redeem, and restore. It is NEVER to steal, kill, or destroy. That is not His work. Rather, He is the One who gives life (Jn 10:10). He loves to bless His children! You can come to Him full of confidence that what you are asking for will be yours!
So often, we are afraid to ask God for what we need because we aren’t sure of how He will respond, and so even when we ask, we have no real faith that He will do for us what we requested. It doesn’t have to been this way! He wants His sons and daughters to receive all the good things He has for them, and He promises that whatever we ask for in faith, BELIEVING THAT WE WILL RECEIVE IT, will be ours (Mark 11:24)!
Don’t be afraid to ask God for what you need. Do so in faith, and watch what He will accomplish in your life!
