Lets talk soon; you Abba, your daddy and your Father God…
Summary; Jesus himself said; you shall know the truth and the truth will make you free, (John 8:32) when you begin to realize the truth that God is love you can then reach out in faith knowing that he wills to give you freedom from pain, sickness, disease and distress.
God loves you without measure, he longs for you to be made whole, his ‘greatest wish is that you may prosper financially and to be in perfect soundness of health’ (3John 2)
Put far from you the foolishness of thinking that he sent fear and sickness your way: ask yourself, would your natural father want you to be sick in order to teach you something?
God is love; would someone who loves you, hurt you? Knowing that God declares his will to see you in perfect health, would he then make you sick?
Read again and again this Letter from your Father in heaven and give him your fears and your pain, ask him through Christ to heal you and to make you free, for ‘he stands over his words to perform them’
Perhaps you have never asked Christ to be your Lord and saviour, if so you need his forgiveness and his salvation, why not ask him to save and rescue you and to give you life eternal; pray something after this manner…. Heavenly Father; I confess that I am a sinner and ask for your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus, your Son, died on the cross to pay the consequences, the penalty for all my sins. Dear Lord Jesus, I believe that God raised you from the dead so please come into my life be my Saviour and Lord and help me to become the person you want me to be and to live always for you. Holy Spirit please come and fill me with the knowledge of Christ; thank you Lord for your forgiveness and for your assurance that I will spend eternity with you in heaven forever. Amen
