Keep the Door Open to God
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. — HEBREWS 11:6
I’ve had many people say to me over the years, “The doctor told me that I will be dead in three months.” Some of them were healed of incurable diseases, such as cancer. Others died in three months. Did God show favoritism? No! God is not a respecter of persons (Acts 10:34). What happened, then?
Some of them opened the door and said, “Come on in, God.” And He came in. Others kept the door shut on God. God’s hands were tied, so to speak; He couldn’t come in and help them. Some were in doubt, and the others were in faith.
Read this prayer aloud and let your heart agree with it:
Heavenly Father, thank You because You’re my Father and I’m Your child. I have been born again. I am born of You. You are my very own Father, and I am Your very own child. Hallelujah! It is written in Your Word that “my God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” [Phil. 4:19]. I believe that in my heart. You supply my physical needs—that is, healing for my body— for it is written in Matthew 8:17, “Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” Jesus took my infirmities. He bore my sicknesses. What He bore, I need not bear. Because He bore them. I’m free; I’m healed. I believe that in my heart. I say it with my mouth. It’s mine. I have it now. He meets all my needs. My spiritual need is met. My financial need is met. Every material need is met. All my needs are met. I believe it in my heart. Because I believe it in my heart, I say it with my mouth. It is done.
Confession: I attend to God’s Word. I put it first in my life. I listen to it.
