The Key

"According to your faith, be it unto you."
Must the flamboyant always have the results?
NO WAY!
I once knew a lady who told me "Jim, the reason you still suffer is because you haven't gone to the _________ ministry! If you would only let _________ pray for you, all your suffering will be gone!"
Again, NO WAY!
Proof of that happened again yesterday. We had one of our missionaries in town. It is always awesome hearing of what God is doing across the borders and over the seas! Of course, he caught us up on that, but he also prayed for anyone in need during the service.
I did not go forward. I was in too much pain! Rather, I sat in my seat and held onto that scripture that said that if I would only believe, it would be done unto me.
In Matthew 7:8,9, there is the account of the faith of the centurion, in that Jesus had only to speak the word and healing would take place. That is what happened yesterday. I was in too much pain to go up for prayer. So I sat there and, believing, received. By the time I got home, I was feeling much better. This morning, I feel great! God is so good!
What about you? You can receive what you are needing. It doesn't have to be in front of a lot of people. It doesn't have to be at a huge meeting. But it does have to be IN FAITH!
What are you still going through? What are you still suffering from? Is it because you think you haven't gotten into the 'right' scenario to receive? Set your heart to receive today! Faith is the key!
