“I came so that they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.” John 10:10 (MSG)
God desires you to have a healthy and whole life. We sometimes need to work on our own expectations concerning our own lives. Do we expect God to heal us if we are sick? James 4:2 says that “you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it.” (NLT)
We need to get to know God’s promises by reading the bible daily. We need to ask God for a better life for that is His plan for us. We need to ask God for healing if we are sick, for that is His will for us. We need to believe and receive.
So many voices in this world will tell us that we don’t deserve a good life and that we shouldn’t expect it. But God’s word clearly says the opposite. I love to read God’s word out loud because I need it to quiet the voices around me. I often read Psalm 91. It is a Psalm of protection. In verse 3 it says, “He will protect you from deadly disease.”
Let’s use the last few days left of fasting to ask God to reveal His promises to us concerning healing, so that an atmosphere of faith and expectations will rise within us. That is His will for us.
