You need to appropriate what God has already provided for you!
When people have a wrong understanding of God, and then something bad happens, they get mad at God and blame Him, or they question His existence at all. I hear words like, “Why would a good God or any God allow these terrible things to happen?”
An ongoing question I hear Christians and non believers discussing, is the sovereignty of God and if He exists, why is there so much suffering and tragedy? Many Christians and other religions have explained this misconception by saying: “God is a mysterious God and you never know what He has planned in allowing suffering and evil, or there is a reason He has for this evil, sickness or disease and we may not understand yet.” Or “There are good reasons for God to allow evil and suffering, maybe it’s to let someone else know about Him, to build your faith and grow you! You never know who will get saved because of this evil and suffering!” NOT! atheists say: “There are reasons why things happen!”
God says: I have come to give life and life abundant. Jesus came to save (Sozo= healed, prospered, forgiven, set free) You. “You Shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” His truth is all found in His Word, The Bible. There is ONLY ONE GOD and only one way to God and that is through His Son Jesus Christ.
Though there have been instances where people were saved because of some tragedy, God has a better, best, way to save people. It is through HIS TRUTH, HIS WORD and sharing the GOOD NEWS that saves. He came to save. The TRUTH sets you free. Not sickness, diseases and tragedies. As far as building your ‘faith’? God says He has already provided all the faith we need, It is His gift to us as believers, you just need to appropriate what God has already provided. He has provided, faith, grace, salvation, health, prosperity, joy, forgiveness, freedom, power, love, authority and so much more, if you only BELIEVE.
There has already been the ultimate sacrifice and suffering. It was through Jesus Christ. We are living in a time of Grace. All who live after the time of Jesus Christ on this earth are living in GRACE.
Grace=“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” Ephesians 2:8-10
“For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ” John 1:17
God is NOT the one ALLOWING evil or suffering, nor is HE causing it, creating it or letting it happen!
God came to bring life and life abundant. Jesus came to save us. There is an existence of an enemy, and evil exists because of the existence of evil men, who have a free will to listen to God or listen to the devil. God has given us all a free will to love or not to love Him and man, to sin or not, to choose life or death, yet He leads us in His Word through His direction as to how to live an exceedingly abundant life in HIM. To Choose Christ is to have a greater power living in you to help you in this world. The Holy Spirit is our guide here on earth to help us choose right. Even though we may not always listen to the Holy Spirit and we still sin. Because of our life in Christ we have forgiveness and an inner conviction to try to sin no more. If we do not Have Christ IN us, we tend to listen to Satan, the world and our flesh. The enemies voice can become very loud, and our hearts are evil without Christ.
“For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!” Romans 5:17
God is not the author of sickness, disease, or tragedies.
Satan came to steal, kill and destroy. What a great way to make that possible, by getting people to believe that God is the one who causes or allows all the tragedies and junk in this world. God destroyed the works of the enemy, so don’t start giving satan power by believing his lies and deception. Really that is all the enemy has…Lies and deception. God came to bring life, and life more abundantly. Disease is not life.
SO WHY IS THERE SO MUCH TRAGEDY IN THE WORLD?
There is so much tragedy in the world because ‘PEOPLE ALLOW’ it. NOT GOD. You give power to Satan by believing the lies, by not following Christ. God has given us a free will to do as we like. But He tells us what life here will be like when you follow after your own lusts and desires, and the lies of the enemy. He tells us also what our lives will be like when we follow and love HIM.
HE tells us we have power and authority over sickness, disease, and we can calm the storms, heal the sick, and raise the dead. We have HIS power living inside of us as a believer, not for evil but for amazingly awesome things…. LIFE!
Life and death are the power of our tongues. Our Words can bring life, or they can bring death. I hear people speak death over themselves and their families and friends way too often. It just grieves me. Start using Words of life.
“BY HIS STRIPES I AM HEALED” – “NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER” – “WITH LONG LIFE WILL HE SATISFY ME”
Begin to use your inheritance of power and of authority by commanding the mountains in your life to MOVE. Command sickness to leave, blind eyes to open. Command in Jesus Name the tragedies to NOT come near you and your household. We have this amazing Inheritance that Jesus paid for us to have and to take here and now.
STOP ‘allowing’ the evil and tragedies. Start MOVING the MOUNTAINS in your life through the power of the Word of God.
~~~GOD IS A GOOD GOD ~~~
