When you walk into a dark room and flip the light switch, what do expect to happen? You don’t get all excited and jump up and down when the light comes on after you flip the switch, because you EXPECT the light to come on, because it’s supposed to.  You’re only surprised when the light DOESN’T come on, right?  How about when you put the key in the lock to your home, do you ask someone’s permission to open the door?  No?  Why not?  Because it is YOUR home, you own it, you have the right to be there.  Now think of the Bible in those same terms.

As a born-again child of God, there are certain things you should expect to happen.  First off, you should believe your heavenly Father’s words.  That’s first and foremost.  The Bible tells us to come BOLDLY to the Throne of Grace.  Why? Because as a blood-bought child of God, we are family, and we have a right to go in there to be with our Father, and there He speaks to His children.  What should our reaction be? We should believe every word that proceeds from Him, for He is Almighty God, and there is only truth in Him, and in Him there is no lie.

How do you get into the Throne Room of God?  You must first enter into His gates, and proceed into His courts, and we enter there by thanksgiving and praise, according to Psalm 100:4-5, which says:
Psa 100:4  Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
Psa 100:5  For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Notice it says His mercy is everlasting and His truth endures to all generations.  His TRUTH, that’s what I’ll focus on today for the purpose of this article.  God is truth, establish that and everything concerning God will work for you. Settle that, and you’re home free.  Fail to settle that, and your relationship with God will be built on nothing better than doubt and unbelief and you’ll be led your whole life with fear, worry, and everything else the devil chooses to throw at you.
You all know one of my favorite Bible passages is Psalm 103:2-3, which says:
Psa 103:2  Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
Psa 103:3  Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

The VERY FIRST thing I did when the LORD revealed these verses to me in 1993 was to BELIEVE IT!  Now most people would read those verses and say, Yeah, ok, that’s nice. But in July 1993 I had five melanomas and liver cancer and I needed to be healed, and when I saw those verses it got me real excited.  In those two verses, I saw my healing.  It was right there!  God said it, and therefore was no reason to doubt His Words.  And to this day I’m STILL healed.  But what if I hadn’t literally taken God at His word?  What if my attitude had been what most everyone else’s was?  What if I looked to the physical symptoms and the pain and the doctor’s reports and looked at God’s Word and believed the symptoms over the Word of God? We both know the answer to that: I’d be dead.  Why did God choose to heal me, of all people?  Simple; I believed His Word.  That is what sets God’s children apart from the rest.  I like to say it like this, we are either Saints or Aint’s.  Either we believe God, or we don’t.  There is no middle ground, no shades of gray with God, it’s either truth or lies.  In God’s case, it’s only truth.

Why is it that people who profess to be BELIEVERS, aren’t?  I can’t understand that one. If God cannot lie, and when people read in His Word that they are healed by the stripes of Jesus (Y’shua Messiah), then what should their reaction be?  THANK YOU, LORD!! , and receive their healing.  After all, it’s already paid for, it’s YOURS, by birthright into the Kingdom of God, you should EXPECT it.  What’s the problem, then?

Well, you tell me.  I hear every excuse under the sun why people don’t receive their healing, and “He will heal me IF IT’S HIS WILL” is usually the first one. I travel to minister healing, so I’d better be real careful I don’t heal someone that it isn’t God’s will to heal, right?  What about the Lord Jesus?  What if HE had healed someone that wasn’t His Father’s will to heal?  Wouldn’t that have been sin for Him to do something against His Father’s will?  Sure it would have been.  But that’s never a worry, for the Lord Jesus healed ALL who came to Him.  Never even once did He refuse to heal anyone.  He said He only did that which He saw His Father do.  In another place He said, “I and My Father are ONE.” People praying “Oh, Lord, if it’s your will, heal so-and-so”, sounds real “religious and holy” and leaves the person being prayed for with a hint of HOPE, but little EXPECTATION.  In fact, that prayer the number one destroyer of faith, for the devil immediately comes and tells that person, “Too bad, Sucker, it isn’t God’s will to heal YOU.”   And as each day passes with no results, hope flies right out the window.

Today in a vision the LORD reminded me of a TV ad that has been run on many stations about a cancer center.  They talk about people being treated for and healed of cancer.  And at the bottom of the screen it says, “You should not expect these results.” Well, that’s typical of the world’s system. They don’t give you much hope, and if you are healed, you’re the exception, not the rule.  But that’s NOT how GOD’S Word works!   God doesn’t lie!  Now we will take the doctor’s word, and have no doubt, but how about believing God?  That’s another story altogether.  We say we believe, but the proof is in the pudding, as they say.  I ask people, When I pray with you, will you be healed?   Most of the time they say, “I hope so….”  Folks, I make it real clear, I’m not the healer, Christ Jesus is.  You’re not looking to me for healing, you’re looking to HIM, who cannot lie, cannot fail, who is full of mercy and grace, and most importantly, HE LOVES YOU AND GAVE HIS LIFE ON THE CROSS SO THAT YOU MIGHT LIVE!

So today, flip that faith switch ON and EXPECT God to do exactly what He said He will do.  Don’t let the devil come in and flip that switch off with his doubt and unbelief.  God really wants you to literally take Him at His Word.  After all, you’re His child, aren’t you?  Would your Father lie to you?  Of course not!
And if you aren’t His child right now, what’s stopping you?  You can be a child of the LORD of LORDS and KING of KINGS, He loves you and He is RICH and has everything you could ever need, and He is not a bit stingy.  Do you believe that?  Then you qualify to be His child. Come join His family, He takes all who come to Him, keeps them all, and never disowns any. And don’t forget all His benefits……EXPECT HEALING!  That’s only ONE of His many benefits. BE HEALED NOW IN THE NAME OF CHRIST JESUS OF NAZARETH!
