Promises Tucked Away in Faith

I have few fears in life. I used to say I was fearless, which is close to the whole true story, but I fear the Lord and fear people within my reach not fearing the Lord. So I do have a me fears. I know God loves us all, made us all special, but He gave us all free will to choose Him or the other guy and we can be pretty short sighted sometimes and those consequences are real and frightening. But I digress and have only those two fears. The reason I don’t have more or worry like many (I wrote a book “Worry Crashers” on Amazon Kindle books that goes into more depth) is because one of my spiritual gifts is faith. This is why I am am doctor, a healer, and why I heal people sometimes inadvertantly, often purposefully. I can only do that because I have faith, believing what God says in His Word the Bible and trusting that God only tells us the truth. I believe what He says, even if I can’t see it. I trust Him like a kid trusts their honest parent. As such, I know He heals and is the Great Physician. As such, He always can heal anyone of anything. He can even raise the dead or make a brand new person, for heaven’s sake. I even have faith that if He chooses not to, there is a better reason for it. And tucked away in my faith are His promises in the Bible. He never ever gives us a command or rule without giving a corresponding promise with it. Test me on that. Every command has a promise that comes true when you obey it. “Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord” is immediately followed with the promise “and He will give you strength.” “Honor your father and mother and it will go well with you.” “Be strong and courageous and I will fight for you.” “Tithe and see if I do not provide what you need.” So many instances of every command having a subsequent promise. These promises are like our assurrance, our roots that hold us to the truth that there are reasons God tells us stuff. God says what He means out of love, for our benefit. My faith grows as I test Him and He delivers. I obey and bam! He delivers on His promise. It is like clockwork, you can count on Him. He is not off golfing on some distant planet, He is here answering prayers, keeping promises, living and active and in love with us, wanting all of us to be saved. So humbling and ao faithful. He is one of the few who is. It melts the heart. ❤
