Summary: Come to God, wash away the doubt and unbelief and receive from Him.
GO WASH AND RECEIVE
This morning I believe God wants us to understand that He cares. No matter what the devil has been able to cause you to think, God really cares about you. He cares about your problem, He cares about your sickness, He cares about your disease, He cares about your lonliness, He cares about your financial situation.
1st Peter 5:6&7 says "6---Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 7---Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Whoever you are here this morning that is having a problem-----He Cares For You!
Some of you may have just gotton into your situation, others may have been strugling with yours for a while, while some may have been in your struggle for many years.
That doesn’t matter to God because He is the God of the now. He can take care of you right now, right here, this very day.
The only thing you have to do is what Peter did. You have to step out in the water. You have to step out into deleverence, you have to step out into healing, you have to step out into your financial blessing.
God spoke something into my spirit as I was waiting upon Him for this message and this is as good a time as any to share it with you.
He said that the problem with us is that we want to live in the natural realm too much. We look at our situations from the natural and not from the spiritual.
He said our help is not going to come from the natural, but from the supernatural.
He said in the natural we say I’ll believe it when I see it--------But in the spiritual realm we have to believe it before we can see it.
I believe that our main problem is that we have the ability to doubt.
I am made to remember a deaf and somewhat dumb lady in Ozona that I prayed for one evening. (she was a neighbor to some people that was in our church)
(she was suffering all day from a migrain headache and as soon as I prayed for her I saw the expression of relief come across her face when God healed her)
(she probably didn’t know how to doubt)
Many in the bible were healed who were deaf and dumb and didn’t have the ability to doubt.
Oh, if we could just be delivered form doubting, if we could just believe God, if we would just focus on what He tells us in his word.
16--Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all.
17--(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
18--Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.
19--And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb:
20--He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief: but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
21--And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
And that is what it is all about. We have to stop stabbering at the promises of God because of unbelief.
We have to step out of the natural and into the supernatural.
God gives us scripture in Philippians chapter 4
11--Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, there with to be content.
(Whatever the problem)
13--I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
(I can be delivered, I can be healed, I can make ends meet)
WHY?--------BECAUSE VERSE 19 SAYS:
19--But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
In glory there will be no more night----No more dark experiences like you are going through
In glory there will be no more tears----You may be weeping now, but your joy is on the way.
In glory there will be no more sorrow-We’ll have joy unspeakable and full of glory.
In glory pain will be gone----sickness will be gone---disease will be gone!
But He said I will supply all your need NOW!---According to my riches in glory.
