The Faith that Enforces Satan’s Defeat (4)
And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. - Luke 17:11-13
Remember we started looking at “Faith”, but in the next two days we will be considering examples from the Bible of how it works.
If you want to appropriate faith for your healing, you could say according to the word of God in Matthew 8:17 says “that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sickness”.
I believe and confess that Jesus Himself took my infirmities (name them) and carried away my sickness. That forms the basis of your confession. The reason why you start to meditate on that scripture is that meditation will cause the word to saturate your spirit. The word “ to meditate” means to ponder on it with the aim of muttering it, speaking it quietly to yourself. You are not denying the symptoms; you are just focusing on what God’s word says about your situation. You are doing what Abraham did to have a strong faith.
Someone says that he cannot understand how this work. You don’t need to understand many things for it to work for you. Do you believe you have a brain? I am sure you will say yes, but you have never seen your brain to believe you have one. The various innovations, imaginations, memories and inventions have convinced you that intricate and computerized nerves inhabit the skull of your human brain. God’s thoughts are deeper than ours and His thought is far superior to our thought.
Prayer: I choose from today to co-operate with every word of God spoken to my life in Jesus Name.
