You have heard people of the world say, “I will believe it only when I see it.” Generally, that is the way the world thinks. But God’s ways are not like the ways of the world. The world says, “If I can’t feel it or see it, I cannot believe the miracle is here.” God says, “If you believe it before you feel it or see it, you will see your miracle.”
Believing first before seeing the evidence of what we are believing for is called faith. Faith is like a spark and Jesus is the dynamite powder.
In the story of the healing of the woman with the issue of blood, there were many people who touched Jesus (Mark 5:31), but nothing happened to them. They didn’t touch Him in faith. But when the woman who had been bleeding for 12 years came to Him and touched Him in faith, He felt power leave His body (Mark 5:30), and it sparked off an explosion of healing in the woman’s body!
Hearing about how good, kind and loving Jesus was fired her faith to believe that He could and would heal her. So convinced was she (even when the condition in her body was still evident) that she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.” Did she experience her healing first before she believed? No, she believed first in Jesus’ goodness and power, acted in faith and only then felt the healing in her body.
In the same way, God wants you to believe in His goodness and love toward you. He wants you to know how willing He is to act on your behalf to bless you, and how, with Christ, He will freely give you every good thing. (Romans 8:32)
He wants you to declare by faith that all is and shall be well with you, and to expect to see just that. And then, no matter how long you have had the problem, no matter how bad the experts say it is, an explosion of healing and restoration will take place, and you will receive what you are believing for!
“God, I don’t know what to do about my marriage anymore.”
“I’ve no idea how we’re going to pay off this loan.”
“God, I didn’t see this retrenchment coming at all. What do I do?!”
Have you ever had these conversations with the Lord? The good news is, God hears you and He wants to show you what to do in every crisis.
He does it through His Holy Spirit who lives in us. The Holy Spirit is our Helper who teaches us all things and guides us into all truth (see John 14:26; John 16:7, 13).
“All things” encompasses not just your spiritual walk, but also every practical area of your life—your relationships, career, finances, and so on. The Lord guides you as you simply come to Him and talk to Him. Yes! Did you know that He invites you to talk with Him? (see Ps. 27:8 NLT).
Plus, God has promised to instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; to counsel you with His loving eye on you (see Ps. 32:8 NIV). So the next time you don’t know what to do, talk to Him. And as He has promised in His Word, He will give you practical wisdom for that problem, or cause what you need to supernaturally come to you!
Let’s see how it happened for these two precious believers.
Victory over Long-Term Weight Problem
Jaclyn* shared that she’d been obese for all of her adult life—weighing 333 pounds at one point. It meant that she could barely make it up the stairs for bed every night. She was miserable about it, but constantly failed in her attempts to control her diet.
Eventually, she gave up on trying to lose weight through her self-efforts. She surrendered to the Lord, and started trusting in Him to show her how to lose weight.
The result? Jaclyn started eating healthily, learned how to maintain an active lifestyle, and shed 63 pounds over four months! At the time of writing, she was walking every day, and had no doubt that she would reach her ideal weight—because “…God and I are doing this together.”
“It might have been difficult for me to lose weight before, but not anymore when I simply rest in the Lord.”
Praise Jesus! Do you see how Jaclyn’s breakthrough came when she believed that the Lord would show her how to lose weight, and involved Him in the process?
Life Restored, Landed Job of Her Dreams
My friend, perhaps you’re not feeling helpless about your weight, but about that broken relationship, financial situation, or work challenge. Now, let’s see how the Lord restored Bianca’s life as she simply cried out to Him and sought His help.
Bianca* shared, “In 2015, my life fell apart. Jobless and brokenhearted, I drove 2,000 miles back to my home state.” She cried out to Jesus for help and read His Word. She also found my TV broadcast and began consuming my teachings on grace.
In the following months, an amazing job opportunity arose but she felt unqualified for it. So, Bianca asked God to shut this door if it wasn’t His will for her, and to grant her divine favor if it was.
Despite being merely one among 400 applicants, she landed an interview! The recruiter even arranged for a second interview. Bianca was really nervous, and told the Lord she could only put one foot in front of the other, show up, and He’d have to do the rest.
For a test after the interview, she asked the Lord to supply His grace in her answers. A few days later, she was given the job! Today, she’s earning more than she did before, and she even has her own office—something she’d specifically asked the Lord for.
Said Bianca, “I love Pastor Prince’s teachings on God’s 120 percent restoration and have seen it manifest in my life.” She now stands on God’s grace every day, believing that He has great plans for her.
What an amazing testimony! My friend, do you see how Bianca spoke to the Lord and sought His help every time she didn’t know what to do?
You can do the same. When you come to the One who always knows what to do and who loves you more than any other, you can be sure that He’ll always respond exceedingly, abundantly above all that you can ask or think!
