God can or He will?

You know God can. Do you believe He will

The difference between both can be found only in action. There are many who know God can heal, but a few who expectedly go to Him for healing when they are sick. 

If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” (Matthew 21:22) 

We see in scripture that Abraham ‘believed God and it was counted to him as righteousness”. It is theHe will faith that moves God. Pray like God will answer your prayer, live like God is enough for everything. 

In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.(James 2:17)

‘God can’ way of believing does not lead you to action, but a ‘God will’ way of believing is faith accompanied by action. Radical faith always involves risk in the natural. 

Knowing ‘God can’ is a good start but does not change your life in anyway, but believing ‘God will’ can have an impact on everything you do. Your breakthrough could be just a ‘change in perception’ away. 

  • Do not allow unanswered prayers pull you down from a ‘God will’ way of believing to ‘God can’. 
  • While praying, say : “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)
  • Thank God in advance for what you believe and like Peter stepped out of the boat, walk into your answer. 
  • Jesus was surprised by the centurion’s faith, who said ” just say the word, and my servant will be healed”. What is it like to surprise God with our faith?

What is ‘believing’ according to you? 
Have you been in situations where you know God can help you but you are not sure if He will?

OT#1 – Just Believe!

If Christianity had a slogan I think it would be “Just Believe”. From Abraham to the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ all that is asked of us is to believe. The principle behind having childlike faith to enter the Kingdom of God, to heal the sick, raise the dead, to serve the water which turned into wine; is simply believe. Most often what separates success and failure is based on what we believe.  

Mark 9:23 “Everything is possible for him who believes.” 

God Bless,

Co-Laborers – It is a partnership!

Have you ever waited for God to show up and do something miraculous and supernatural? I have many times and over the success and failures in these moments, this is what God has been teaching me. 
 
‘It is a partnership’
 
God, I want to know the difference between reality and faith, between being practical and the supernatural. I prayed that sitting at a worship gathering one evening. God started speaking to me very soon as I sat still in His presence. I began writing –
 
If He does the impossible and takes us to that place of influence now, what do we have to give? What have we created out of what He gave us to showcase being in that place of favor? Will we be an empty vessel covered with His glory having nothing to give to the world? 
 
Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will serve before kings. (proverbs 22:29
 
We need to place ourselves ready for His glory to shine best. He is looking for co-laborers. He likes to work through what is available. Like the water that was available to be turned into wine. While we do the natural we can ask Him to add a supernatural touch. 
 
God honors excellence, faithfulness and hard work and it is possible to accomplish a lot with determination and commitment. This is the secret behind the success of many people who do it without knowing God. But our evaluation of success has to be based on a God given goal. Goal is to reflect His nature and do His will by being His hands here on earth and He has set the standards very high. And this can be done only with a supernatural seal on the natural we do. Intimacy, seeking, receiving, carrying His presence, becoming more like Him and His will becoming ours is the fuel to this partnership. If we don’t change the way we see things we will believe what we see in the natural is the superior reality and that will determine what success means to us.
 
If God wanted to do everything on His own, He wouldn’t need us. He works through us as we abide in Him. It is a partnership deal. 
 
‘Believe and Act’
 
In the middle of a personal worship session at home God asked me to read the book of James. The verse that spoke to me was James 2:23 – “Abraham believed God and it was accounted to him for righteousness and he was called the friend of God” (NKJV, Emphasis added)
 
When we believe, there will be NO room for doubt. It is like black or white. We either believe or we do not. It cannot be white one day and black the other day. God expects us to reach a level of trust where our thoughts, words, actions, reactions will be a manifestation of what we believe. We MUST act based on what we believe. James 2:21, 22 says “Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Issac his son on the altar? Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?“(NKJV, Emphasis added)
 
I am absolutely convinced that God can work in-spite of who we are and what we do. Sometimes we do not see Him do what we want Him to because He is building the character we need to sustain in that level of favour and influence. However, God is teaching me that the above two things play a huge role in living in the ‘fullness’ of His glory everyday! 
 
There is nothing our God cannot do! Keep believing! 
 
Blessings, 
Joel.
