For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
Hebrews 4:3 (KJV)
We know we are truly believing God’s promises in a certain area of life when we have a sense of peace independent of circumstances and conditions. In Jesus we have access to the works that have been finished from the foundation of the world, which means everything we need is available in Him. The more we meditate on this, the more we will find rest in it.
This is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he heareth us.
1 John 5:14 (KJV)
The will of God is revealed through the Word of God. And so let us approach our heavenly Father with the confidence that as we pray according to His will, it is His good pleasure to give us the kingdom. God is withholding no good thing from us, and He is looking for each of us to be instruments and vessels through which His glory may manifest on earth as it is in heaven.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
Philippians 4:6 (NKJV)
It takes a daily training of the mind to rid ourselves from the unproductive habit of worry, and instead take our needs and requests to God in simple and childlike faith. And so whatever need may arise, let us receive by faith the supply, the deliverance or the healing that God by His grace has already set before us.
When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.
John 11:4 (KJV)
It is the will of our heavenly Father that His glory be made manifest in and through His people. And so whether it be sickness, lack, anxiety, or anything else, God wants to use our challenge to manifest His glory in us. This means healing, deliverance, provision, soundness and protection.
