Faith that Heals with Deliverance that Lasts
If you did not receive/see/experience that spontaneous deliverance from your sin issue, what do you do? Did you know that absolute deliverance comes with repentance (change of mind that results in a change of action)?
Faith is having the confidence that you have receive something that you hoped/believed for that has yet to manifest naturally (Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen). My now faith says I am confident that it’s here, I am just waiting to receive it.
Matthew 7: 8 for everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened
This already tells me if you asked for it, it is here you just need to accept it.
Work it out/Walk it out
Your actions have to follow what you believe or say you believe or they are just empty words.
(James 2: 21-22, 26) 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? 22 Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
Your response/action has to line up with your faith (the confidence that says it is done). Walk out your deliverance by getting your heart and mind right. If you truly want to be delivered you need to start the process by accepting that Christ Jesus can and has delivered you from, your sin. That is if you did ask Him to come into your heart of course. What good is your mind without a clean heart? If you have asked God to deliver you from this sin issue and meant it, then He has already given it to you in the spirit (heavenly realm), it just needs to manifest in the natural. (Matthew 6:10 Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.) It is God’s will for us to be healed, delivered and set free.
Luke 4:18, 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free.
How is my house/environment/body/temple…? Matthew 12:43 “When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. 44 Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. 45 Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation.” This clearly tells us that once you are clean you have to do something in order to stay clean.
How do I know God has delivered me?
Trust His word and accept it as is (see Matt 7:8) Why do I still crave this thing? Do not doubt your deliverance just walk it out. Until you fill your house with Godly things your struggle will continue.
Christ tells us what to do if we have a part of us that wants to sin. Cut it off… Matthew 5:29 "If your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30"If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to go into hell.
How? Surround yourself with Godly/righteous/clean things. Meditate on These Things
Philippians 4:8 8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
If you have a problem with watching “unclean” things, start by removing the TV or Computer. If you have a problem with swearing/cussing, stay away for people who practice the habit, stop participating in the behavior and be accountable to someone. Try not to feed into your flesh (sin desires) with God’s help and your obedience you can overcome. What you are now doing is filling your now renewed mind/spirit with the things of God; the more you fill up on Godly things the better you are able to deal with those temptations. What if I fall? Ask for forgiveness and strengthen yourself and keep pressing forward.
Luke 22:31 31 “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. 32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers According to this scripture we may fall at times but like Simon your faith again can restore you.
Philippians 4:13 - 13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I ask you to come into my heart and to forgive me of my sins, I recognize that I am a sinner and without you I am lost, deliver me from my unrighteousness, renew my heart and change my mind, create a right spirit within me. Father I accept my deliverance in Christ Jesus, give me the strength to be obedient to your will and walk in your way. I welcome the Holy Spirit to lead guide and direct my path, to all truth and righteous wisdom that is from You alone. I thank you for my healing in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
