Day 124: Understanding The Equation

Day 124: Understanding The Equation
May 12, 2015 Joel Grantham

“Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; nor His ear heavy, that it cannot hear.”  Isaiah 59:1

Nothing is impossible with God!  (See Matthew 19:26.)   There is no sickness that He cannot heal, no bondage that He cannot break and no problem that He cannot overcome!  With God, your situation is not hopeless, it is HOPEFUL!

When it comes to receiving anything from the Lord, especially physically healing, there are two sides to the equation that must be understood.  There is the God side and then there is the man side.  We cannot do God’s part and God will not do our part!

Let’s first talk about God’s part for just a moment.  God’s part was completed on the cross of Calvary.  In John 19:30, while on the cross, Jesus said, “It is FINISHED.”  You see, Jesus did the HARD PART for us to be healed when He took stripes on His back and ultimately died to redeem us from the curse of sickness and disease!

Stop waiting on God to do something MORE about your sickness and disease!  After all, what He has already done in Christ is enough for every single person on this planet to be healed.   There is nothing more that God needs to do in order for you to be healed!  What else can He do?  On the cross He did everything that could be done, and everything that needed to be done, for you to be healed.

Now, let’s talk about the man side of the equation.  We have the easy job.  Our part is to BELIEVE that God has already done His part!  It is our faith that activates the promises of God in our life.  You see, just because God has done His part so that you can be saved and healed does not mean that you will automatically be saved and healed.  It is not enough to believe that “all things are possible with God.” (Matthew 19:26)  We must also believe that “all things are possible to him that believes.” (See Mark 9:23).

It is not up to God whether or not you are healed.  God has already done His part!  Now it is up to you!  Will you believe His word?  Will you refuse to doubt by considering your circumstances?  The question is not, “Can God do it?”  The question is, “Can you believe His Word?”  In Mark 9:23 Jesus said, “IF YOU CAN BELIEVE, all things are possible to him who believes.”


Confession: Nothing is too hard or impossible with God.  I believe His Word that He has paid for my sickness and disease on the cross.  By His stripes I am healed!
