The Lord asked me, Since when does it change My Word whether or not you see it in manifestation?  Well, I don’t recall that I had been giving any thought to that lately, as I have settled in my heart that if God said it, then it’s done.  But not everyone thinks like that.  When the Lord said in Genesis 1:3 “Let there be light”, or more literally, “Light BE!” light came into existence.  Just because you and I weren’t there to witness it, doesn’t change anything.  God said it, and it was…and it IS as He said. 

    But, ask a blind man if it is light, and most likely he will say, I don’t know.  Light may be shining all around him, but he can’t see it.  But just because he can’t see it, doesn’t make it untrue.  Even though the truth is, it is light, to him it is not truth, because he is in the dark, surrounded completely by it constantly.

Many people are experiencing sickness or something wrong in their body.  To them, they may agree and consent the Word of God says that they are healed by the stripes of Jesus, but somehow, deep inside, it is just not quite “truth” to them.  Why not?  For the same reason a blind man cannot believe it is light, because he can’t see any.

    Getting the truth of God’s word forever settled in your head, heart, and mouth takes some doing on your part.  Pretty early on in my walk with the Lord, I settled that if I saw it in His Word, that was the end of the discussion with me.  I knew it was truth, whether I believed it or not.  You see, truth is not affected by whether you believe it or not.  But how YOU are affected by the truth depends on how you believe.   Many people in Africa believe in witch doctors.  A witch doctor can walk up to a person and curse them and say they will die today, and most likely that person will die today, because they believe what he said.  And even though witch doctors have power, they are no match for the authority given to a born-again believer.  A believer has power over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt them, according to Luke 10:19. So basically, what I’m saying, is nothing they say to me has any effect on me, because whatever the devil spouts is a lie.  I’m not giving him ANY power over me.  Not now, not anytime. Period.  No truth is in him.  Never has been, never will be.  If he tries to convince me I have to be sick, I just laugh and walk off.  I know the truth..God said I’m healed.

    On the other hand, there is no lie in God.  Never has been, never will be.  So with that in mind, when the Bible tells me you and I are healed by the stripes Jesus took on His body, then that part is settled forever.  It’s not open to question or discussion.  God said it, and it is settled.  Period.  Simple, huh?   Then tell me why are so many of God’s kids sick?

Simple….they have not settled, I mean COMPLETELY settled in their heart that they are healed.  They are waiting until they see it, or at least until they see “some progress toward it”.  

    My friend, God’s Word being truth is not dependent on whether you see any evidence in the natural of it.  Never has been, never will be.  Some of you may argue with me about it being God’s will for everyone to be well.  And I guess that’s your right.  But as for me, I haven’t been sick a day in over 13 years since I settled in my heart that I’m healed, and friend, I’m not going back and re-think it because someone else around me is sick.   Psalm 91:7-10 says, A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.  Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the Most High thy habitation; no evil shall befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.   Do YOU believe that?  I do, with every fiber of my being.  I’m settled, therefore, I’m well.  And do you know what?  You can be too!

    My heart goes out to those who are “settled” as long as they feel well, but as soon as some symptoms come along, they have to start going back, examining the scriptures to “see if these things are so”.  They ARE so, because God said it, and the sooner YOU get it settled, the sooner YOU will be enjoying the divine health that God plans for you to have.  Someone told me “Well, flu season is just around the corner, I’m thinking of getting a shot so I don’t get it so bad this year.”   Not me.  I don’t get the flu.  Don’t have to anymore, Jesus said I’m healed.  And I’m not the smartest person in the world, but I’m not so dumb as to argue with God!!  Praise God, I don’t have colds anymore.  I don’t get sick anymore.  I gave all my sicknesses, all my sins, all my diseases to Jesus….and ran like crazy!   I don’t want any of that junk back ever again.  He can have it!

    Maybe you’re finally fed up, sick and tired of being sick and tired.  Maybe you’ve battled sickness for a long, long time, hoping for relief, hoping someday it will change and one day you’ll get well.  Like I said in another letter, don’t settle for someday.  Settle it NOW, and don’t ever look back.  Take communion over it, get it settled  with you and the Lord just like He settled it when He spoke it.  You don’t see God’s Word ever failing. Talk to Him, tell Him you want to settle something with Him, He will show up and settle with you, be assured of that.  He is quick to guard His word and protect it with the Power that cannot be broken.  His end will hold up no matter what the devil throws at it.  Next, you settle your end, and you can kiss sickness goodbye for good.  Yeah, someday your natural body will die, but it doesn’t have to die sick!  You can get satisfied and just go home to be with Jesus.  Settle it now.
