Amos 9:14 (MSG) “I’ll make everything RIGHT AGAIN for My people …”
What does it mean when God says He will make everything “RIGHT AGAIN” for His people? Well, I believe it all boils down to Jesus’ finished work at the cross. He Who knew NO SIN became sin so you and I may become the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD in Him. We don’t limit our becoming righteous by being seen RIGHT before God’s eyes but it also conveys that whatever is NOT RIGHT that He sees in our lives, He will make them RIGHT or if I may radically say … He HAS already made them right … not by our might, nor by our power but by His Spirit.
For the past few days, I’ve been feeling so sick in my body and got so weak. I have been declaring His Word … “by the stripes of Jesus, I AM healed!” but at the same time asking Him for a NEW THING … a new revelation about healing! Then, I heard it in my spirit this phrase … “Sickness is NOT in its rightful place when inflicted in the body of the righteous!” When Jesus redeemed you, He redeemed your whole you … your spirit, your soul and your body! The only thing is … IT ISN’T AUTOMATIC! We need to fight a good fight of faith and that is to fight FROM the victory that Jesus won for you and me. It is a good fight because we have already been declared HEALED and VICTORIOUS!!!
One of the ways to fight is to keep your thoughts captive into the obedience of Christ. When you feel pain, focus on the suffering that Jesus went through to pay for your pain.
“SURELY He took up our PAIN and BORE our suffering …” Isaiah 53:4 (NIV)
“He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that BROUGHT US PEACE was on Him, and by HIS WOUNDS WE ARE HEALED.” Isaiah 53:5
He went through what He needed to go through all because HE LOVES YOU and He desires you to be FREE from sickness or pain or what have you. He never opened His mouth though He was led like a lamb to the slaughter but for the JOY that was set before Him, seeing you free from what you’re suffering from, He endured it all even BEFORE you came to know Him. What He did was a PURE ACT OF LOVE!
Another way of fighting a good fight of faith is opening your mouth to agree with what He has already decreed upon you … HEALED!!! Give VOICE to the Word of God for all of creation trembles into submission to His Word. You no longer to go Him and beg to heal you … but KNOW that HE ALREADY DID 2000 years ago. Many believers believe but not pursuing enough TO SEE what it means to live a “heaven on earth” life that Jesus paid for and witness the manifestations of His promises. We give up so easily when things don’t go the way we expect it to be! Keep declaring for “a wise tongue promotes health.” (Proverbs 12:18). “A truthful lip shall be established!” (Proverbs 12:19). “A man will be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth.” (Proverbs 12:14).
Never quit before you see what you want to see! Give thanks for it is an act of faith to be grateful for what He has already given yet not seen!
I have pressed on living in the light of God’s presence that weakened principalities and powers of darkenss. I rejoiced in Him! I thanked, praised and worshiped Him! And NOW I have seen His Word becoming flesh in my flesh and healed me. Glory to God!
In your position of righteousness is where God qualified you to partake of the riches of the inheritance of the saints and HEALING is one! Receive it and it’s yours!
