Don’t Dwell on Past Failures!
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. — JAMES 5:15
The doctors had told this businessman that he could fall dead any minute because of a severe heart condition. He also had high blood pressure and a severe kidney condition. The doctors said that if he would sell his business, stay on his medication, and just lie around, he might possibly live another two years. That’s about the best they could offer. If he didn’t do that, he could fall dead in his place of business any minute.
I asked him the question that the Lord had asked me: “Do you believe that God would require you to do something that He wouldn’t do?”
“Why, no, certainly not,” he said.
We turned to Matthew 18:21 and 22 and read where Peter asked how often he should forgive his brother. Then we turned to James 5:14 and 15 and read that if a person has committed any sins, they will be forgiven him. That is the thing that keeps many people’s faith from working. They think that God won’t heal them because they’ve failed.
Confession: Father God, I ask You to forgive me for any wrong I’ve committed. I thank You for forgiveness. I thank You for health and healing.
