War Against Your Sickness With This Daring Prayer Strategy

by | Aug 17, 2016 | Woman

Do we need to grovel on the floor before God when we have a need? Or should we be bold and confident in His willingness to meet our need?

Let me ask you some more questions. Do circumstances dictate our faith? Should we allow negative medical reports to judge God unfaithful to keep His promises? When we don’t receive our healing instantly, do we waver in our beliefs? When we allow circumstances and negative reports to control us then we will not be bold, but full of doubt. 

You may think to yourself, “Well that’s easy for you to say because you don’t walk in my shoes.” And you are right to think that, I don’t, but Jesus has. Hebrews 4:15 encourages us with these words, “For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who was in every sense tempted like we are, yet without sin.”

Strong’s definition of this word “infirmities” is from the Greek word, asthéneia from G772; feebleness (of mind or body); by implication, malady; morally, frailty:—disease, infirmity, sickness, weakness. 

Jesus walked this earth for 33 years. He understands the frailty of the human body. He can sympathize with us, that’s why verse 16 is so powerful for us when it says, “Let us then come with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” He understands, and He calls us to come boldly, not timidly, not with fear, but with all boldness in His redemptive work to save us from the present situation. And with this bold faith we are to come before His throne of grace.

This word “grace” is the Greek word, charis, and it means favor. Take the time to ponder this, and the next time you have a need, come before His throne of favor with bold faith so that you can obtain His mercy. The Greek word for mercy here is éleos, G1656, and it means active compassion. I have taught you in the past that compassion means love in action. Bold faith activates Christ’s love, and needs are met, and people are delivered and healed and receive eternal life. You can read throughout the Gospels and see for yourself how bold faith always activated this active compassion and people were healed in spirit, soul and physical body.

He does not want us groveling on the floor before Him with fear. That’s not demonstrating bold faith, but doubt. He wills for us to come before Him with all confidence and believe that He loves and cares for us as well as desires and is able to meet our needs. Amen! {eoa}
