After our church service on a Sunday we always have lunch together as a fellowship.
People take along various items of food and leave them on the table at the back of the church, and then once the service is over we help ourselves.
Nunsy and myself normally take some rye bread sandwiches as our contribution.
Now after the service I don’t get people coming up to me begging and pleading for a rye bread sandwich; they know I have provided them as a gift to be used so they just take one.
It should be like this with what the Lord has freely provided for us.
Yet how many of us are still asking for healing, asking for acceptance, asking for forgiveness and asking for abundance?
God, through the finished work of Jesus, has freely provided all these things as a gift for us to take and use.
He does not require us to ask for them.
Take healing for example; Jesus told His disciples to go heal the sick, He did not tell them to pray for the sick or ask God the Father for healing for them.
As New Covenant believers healing has already been provided for us, we are required to believe and take that healing for ourselves.
The same is true for acceptance, wholeness and prosperity, among other things.
We have ALL spiritual blessings already, our task is to believe this and use them.
We should be thanking God for His bountiful provision instead of asking for what we already have!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for all that you have already provided through the finished work of Jesus Christ”.
Ephesians 1 v 3…..Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ
