How to Appropriate the Benefits and Promises of God
How to appropriate the benefits and promises of God is to accept the promises of God through faith.
Either His word is true or not but you have to realize you are in a war. Sometimes it is a fight to get the prize or win the war and receive the benefits of the promise.
If you believe in God’s promises, then ask the Lord without wavering, and He does it because God loves you and will prosper you in everything you ask him.
If you are hindered in getting your answer, do not lose faith and blame God for not giving it to you or not receiving what you are asking. Stand, believe and hold out form Him to answer your prayer. If you need healing in your own life, believe that God wants you healed.
You must remember there is a devil with many demons will try to keep you from being prosperous. You should fight and resist Satan and he will fee (Jas. 4:7).
What I do is proclaim the promises of God over my life. I will stand even though I don’t see the answer and even if I don’t see any results. I sometimes feel as though I wrestle to get my answer but we are in a war.
The Benefits and Promises of God: How to Receive Divine Healing
Recently, I was attacked with my health and felt as though my body was attacking itself. Unfortunately, I had tremendous pain in my legs, swelling in my legs, and extreme chronic tiredness. I had to fight my way back. I proclaimed I was healed daily and did not lose faith. I believed it was an attack.
First thing I realized was the attack was from an open door. I had guilt over something in the past or an old programming. That programming was concerned or false burden bearing over another person. I cared what my actions would do and affect this other person. I had to see it and confess it to the Lord. God has to be number one and it was holding me back to the fulfillment of the will of the father.
After I repented for the false responsibility manifesting as guilt, I stood strong before the Lord and proclaimed my healing. I got my healing by standing and believing and fighting. I believed for my healing on the cross.
Daily I would get up and thank the Lord for my divine healing. I was not going to allow the enemy in over my life. I knew the false responsibility was taxing my health and allowed the enemy to attack my body. I was going to win no matter what.
Sometimes I was discouraged but at times I would just pray in the spirit and then proclaim healing over me and victory in Jesus. Just praying in the spirit caused my faith to rise up and stand strong before the Lord with the confidence that the Lord would heal me but I acted as if I was already healed.
As the days past, my strength returned and the swelling stopped. I thanked the Lord daily for little evidence of healing but praised him for the complete healing. I was going to win this battle. Thank you Jesus for helping me to win this battle.
Divine Healing Scriptures
Ps. 37:4-5 “Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto he Lord; trust also in him, and he shall bring it to pass.”
Same thing when we pray for salvation of loved ones or other issues we need answers from the Lord. It is like the story of Jacob before he saw his brother Esau.
All night Jacob wrestled with the angel, making supplication for a blessing. The angel seemed to be resisting his prayer, by continually calling his sins to his remembrance, at the same time endeavoring to break away from him. Jacob was determined to hold the angel, not by physical strength, but by the power of living faith. In his distress Jacob referred to the repentance of his soul, the deep humility he had felt for his wrongs. The angel regarded his prayer with seeming indifference, continually making efforts to release.”
When we are waiting for blessings or answers in prayer or healing, sometimes you do feel as though you wrestle with self. If you did not know it, we are in a war and need to have an attitude of war when it comes to receive blessings, answers or healing from the Lord.
If you are in a habit of running every time the battle goes against you, you will never get what you want.
Why Sometimes Even in the Battle Still No Answer
If you do not obey tot he letter what you know to do, how can you expect these blessings. Do you give up easily in the fight? Are you easily discouraged. Make a decision to obey God, make a decision that all double-mindedness and failure must be stopped.
The Benefits and Promises of God
Maintain an attitude of faith, ignore any feeling, thought or happening that is contrary to the answer. If you can, stay positive in faith. Strengthen yourself by reading Psalms and other scriptures to stay encouraged. Remember not all your thoughts are yours but Satan and his many demons projecting thoughts to discourage you. You simply have to refuse any negative thought. Learn to tear down negative thoughts or distinguish negative thoughts with the Word or cast them down according to 2 Cor. 10:5.
The Benefits and Promises of God: The Power of Prayer and Fasting
Also, it might be necessary to pray and fast until you get an answer from God. That means getting alone with the Lord, giving up food and pressing in with Him until you know you have a release or answer.
Remember faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not see (Heb. 11:1; Rom. 4:17-21.). If you have faith you have the answer.
