My righteous one shall live by faith. Hebrews 10:38.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says
When you have a need, such as healing, deliverance, finances, wisdom, and any kind of help, encouragement, or consolation, I tell you that I already know what you need before you ask, but then I tell you to ask and you shall receive. This mixes up some on how to pray, but really it should not, if you know My Names and the way grace and faith operate together, then you understand.
Many people get discouraged because they wonder why if I know what you need it has not come to pass for them. So they lose hope, start giving up, cry, beg, plead for what they desire, and become depressed over their ruined lives.
Here is the answer: My righteous one shall live by faith.
And that is your answer to freedom. Faith is the victory that overcomes the curse filled world.
I am the LORD who sees ahead and provides. That is one of My Covenant Promise Names. To you who are redeemed that promise is “yes” to you in Jesus. So you should not be surprised that I know what you need before you ask Me. I have supplied all you need for My plan for you before you were ever born, in fact, before the foundation of the world.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. Ephesians 1:3-4.
Even before Adam and Eve sinned, I had the solution. The Lamb slain since the foundation of the world. I saw ahead and provided. At the right time He came, but you had to receive Him, you had to take Him as your savior by faith.
There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. John 1:9-13.
He was My solution to your need, and He came to supply you, but you had to receive Him to have the supply.
When they needed bread in the desert, I had the supply and sent it right to their doorstep every morning except Shabbat, but they had to go out and gather it or it disappeared by the afternoon.
You cannot get your solution without taking it by faith, and that is asking with no doubt.
How do you do that? By being more supply conscious than need (lack) conscious and taking the supply that I have prepared for you in My foresight. And that is the prayer of faith. Mark 11:24.
When the disciples of Jesus saw a huge crowd and only five loaves and two fish, they were need conscious and gave up. All they could see was lack. Their response was one of disbelief, “What good is that for so many?” But Jesus was not need conscious but supply conscious, so He thanked Me for the supply, blessed what He had to put it in My Kingdom instead of in the curse-filled world that Adam brought in by submitting to the jurisdiction of Satan, who is the lord of lack, and there was more than enough bread and fish for all to eat until they could hold no more. It was overflow where the disciples thought there was no supply at all.
You can be like the barren bush in the desert that never sees the good when it comes but just stays barren looking for an answer in the flesh or you can be like the tree that plants itself by the underground stream that no one else sees and puts its root deep into the underground source of water and flourishes.
And consider the Israelites when I redeemed them out of slavery. They had determined that they would take the route over the dry land to get to Mt. Sinai. But what they did not see was that Pharaoh’s army was coming after them full force. And they never would have won on dry land for they had no weapons with which to fight the armed forces. So I made Moses turn course, and he listened and obeyed. He knew Me by then after the ten plagues. He trusted Me and the Israelites trusted him at that point.
But it seemed I had not saved them but condemned them because I took them through a canyon to the shore of the Red Sea where it was deep and there appeared no way to cross, no path to the other side. And suddenly the Egyptian army with its chariots and charioteers was filling the canyon behind them charging forward and they thought there was no way out.
But I saw a path through the sea that I had prepared just for them for that moment when I made the world. I had created a plateau and a walkway well under the sea, on each side of it was a slope of the depths, but the path under the sea, wisdom had walked when the world was made.
But they had to take it.
Was it not You who dried up the sea, the waters of the great deep; who made the depths of the sea a pathway for the redeemed to cross over? So the ransomed of the LORD will return and come with joyful singing and shouting to Zion, and everlasting joy will be on their heads. They will obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing will flee away. Isaiah 51:10-11.
I am the God who works wonders for you. Psalm 77:14.
At the Red Sea the waters saw Me and My way was in the sea and My paths in the mighty waters, but you could not see My footprints though I had walked it at the creation of the world.
The people were all calling out in fear at Moses and Me, I saying the never should have left Egypt. I told the people to just be quiet and stop crying out that they were about to die, and to go forward and watch Me fight for them.
I told Moses to raise his staff and I would part the sea through his authority over the earth and he did and the miracle happened. And by the hand of Moses, I led My people by that pathway like a flock. Psalm 77:16-20.
And the battle strategy? The path was not for the Egyptians to pursue and take them back in slavery a second time, so when they tried to walk it, I closed it by the hand of My servant Moses. And with no weapon or battle of their own, the Israelites won a glorious victory over the army of the great empire of Egypt. I was fighting for them but they had to take the path I opened by faith.
I will rejoice and be glad in Your lovingkindness, because You have seen my affliction; You have known the troubles of my soul, and You have not given me over into the hand of the enemy; You have set my feet in a large place. Psalm 31:7-8.
In Christ Jesus, through whom I made the world, I have created paths for you to walk to do the life of good deeds I prepared for you in advance. All the provisions are there along your path but you must gather and receive them. And you must choose to walk the pathway that the redeemed walk. And how do you walk that? By faith.
A highway will be there, a roadway, and it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, but it will be for him who walks that way, and fools will not wander on it. No lion will be there, nor will any vicious beast go up on it; these will not be found there. But the redeemed will walk there, and the ransomed of the LORD will return and come with joyful shouting to Zion, with everlasting joy upon their heads. They will find gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing will flee away. Isaiah 35:8-10.
When you have illness or pain attack your body, the first thing you must do is see the rich supply of healing that I give to you and receive it. You are already healed by the bloody scourging of Jesus. There is an unlimited supply of healing there for you to take and receive. But you can only receive it by faith. Faith in My Word, which is faith in Me, which is faith in My love and willingness to give you the things you need and more. I have promised you that. But you must be under My jurisdiction to keep them or the devil will take what is yours. He comes only to steal, kill, and destroy. Do not bow your knee to those things but only to the supply from My Kingdom, which is there in My Name by the Name of Jesus.
I look ahead and see your needs, then I supply for them according to My riches in Christ Jesus in glory. I am the LORD who heals you. I have plenty of healing available to you. I am the LORD your deliverer, I am the LORD your helper. I am the God of all comfort and tender mercies. I am the LORD your peace (shalom), I am the LORD your shepherd. I am the LORD your righteousness. I give those who ask for wisdom a generous supply of it. And there are many more promises, and at least one or more of those promises will be just what you need.
So you simply come and ask for it with confidence before My throne of grace and you will receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16. But the Greek word translated “receive” is lambano, which also means to actively take.
And that is living by faith. Even when you see no way I see it. But you must go forward by faith in My Words and take it.
Do not live in fear, little flock, I am pleased to give you the Kingdom.
You should be taking advantage of your glorious freedom from lack, sickness, pain, and eternal death as My child. But the curse is in the earth and so are you. So Satan will try to take you back into slavery a second time. Do not draw back and go there. The Israelites were always trying to go back to the slavery of Egypt whenever they faced a challenge but that kept them from going forward.
Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. You have need of endurance, so that when you have done My will, such as taking Jesus as your Lord, you may receive what was promised. For yet in a very little while, Jesus will return and not delay. But until then My righteous one shall live by faith. And if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in him. Hebrews 10:35-38.
Why? Because I cannot give you the promised result. A double minded person cannot receive from Me, not because I am refusing to give them their answer but because they go to take it and then they draw back and throw it aside. You exercise your faith to go forward and receive. If the Israelites had refused to take the path I opened for them in the sea, they would have shrunk bace to slavery and destruction. But their faith in Me kicked in and they preserved their lives, but even more, they came out victorious to the glorious freedom of My children.
You may think you have no way out of what you are in, but I made the way at the creation of the world. And I love opening it to you. I see ahead of you and know the solution to the problem that will confront you before you even know you will have that challenge from the evil one.
You who believe and receive Jesus as Lord, are made righteous before Me with My own righteousness, and the righteous must live by faith.
You should no longer be need minded but supply minded. When you see a need in your body when it is attacked by pain or illness, from which Jesus has redeemed you and born those things for you in His own body, know the supply is there for you.
Just have faith in My Word of healing, answer the pain or illness with the truth of My Word that you are healed. You are not fighting for healing; you are enforcing the healing you have in My storehouse of treasure. And you cast that unclean spirit of infirmity out, and then ask for your complete healing and restoration from the pain, wounds, and damage set off in your body by that attack. And then you worship. Take communion and come out healthy and rich like My people Israel did after sacrificing the Passover lamb. You have already procured the lamb by My gift of Jesus to you. But you have to receive Him and partake. And you do that by faith. Just as the Israelites had to do at the first Passover.
Do you understand now? I know what you need way before you ever need it and the supply is there since before the foundation of the world waiting for you to take it as needed. And you do that in prayer at My throne of grace. You come to receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. All there for the asking and taking.
I love you. In My grace I have provided you with ALL you need for life and godliness. My grace made it but your faith takes it. You have been saved by grace through faith. I desire that each one of you show the same diligence until the result comes so as to realize the full assurance of hope, so that you will not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Hebrews 6:11-12.
How great is Your goodness, Which You have stored up for those who fear You, which You have wrought for those who take refuge in You, before the sons of men! Psalm 31:19.
