God has said Yes before you believed!
When I first heard this and really thought it through it filled my heart with so much joy and hope. I quickly imagined saying YES to my three children before they would even understand it. I imagen saying yes to protecting them, caring for them, loving them, providing for them, guiding them, saying yes to encourage and equip them for their own lives. Yes, I said YES from the moment I first knew I was carrying them in the womb. I then, clearly understood that our Heavenly Father has said YES to my healing even before I knew I had cancer. He has said YES to all His children so we may live in abundance, in health, in prosperity, with joy and hope in anticipation of all the good that awaits for us all. He has said Yes to every promise He’s given us, to every good thing you can dream of.
The bible has shown us many healing promises that reflect His goodness and willingness to heal us always. The book of Luke chapter 7 clearly displays this truth, “The Faith of the Centurion.” The centurion recognized that he did not deserve Jesus’ mercy or felt worthy of His grace yet he BELIEVED in His goodness and willingness to heal his servant. Jesus marveled at him and the essence of his FAITH to believe that He can heal his servant, and so He did. In this passage, I clearly recognize the hunger and thirst of the centurion to surrender his heart in faith in exchange for God’s goodness… the centurion was not let down and God said YES!
Many will argue but we prayed and believed and so and so still died or nothing changed, etc. Well, I would say we may not understand why or how things may unfold but I am certain that God’s love and goodness are real and eternal. Just like in the book of Daniel chapter 3, the king Nebuchadnezzar was filled with anger and ordered the three men to be thrown into the burning furnace. The three men were so filled with FAITH that they responded that God would rescue them but even if He didn’t it wouldn’t make a difference because the three men were convinced and BELIEVED in God.
I encourage you to BELIEVE and surrender your heart to Him, He is good always and He has already said YES to you!
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
