The will of God is a tremendous thing. You can’t change it. It is already written. It is attested to with the blood of our Savior. Through His death, He has left us the legacy of the complete destruction of the works of Satan in our lives. Heaven’s highest court will see that this will is enforced as we step out to claim its provisions.
Before we can demonstrate the power of God in our lives, we must have our faith tied to a known factor. Those who pray, “If it be thy will…” do not have their faith tied to a known fact. The Bible declares:
But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering, For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. (James 1:6-7)
We must know how to pray in faith believing:
And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. (Matthew 21:22)
It is not enough, Hebrews tells us, just to believe God exists. We must also believe that He rewards those who diligently seek Him:
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. (Hebrews 11:6)
We can pray with authority only when we know that we know that we know that we know that we know! We must know that — no matter what some preachers may say — God does not put sickness and evil upon us. He permits them as in Job’s case, but He does not send them upon His children!
The centurion who asked Jesus to heal his servant told the Lord, “It is totally unnecessary for You to come to my house.” He knew that if it was God’s will for his servant to be healed, there was only one thing needed to make that healing a reality. This soldier had grasped one of the greatest truths that God has given my ministry. It is this: The God that we serve is a God who knows no limit!
One of the greatest reasons why we limit an unlimited God, is because we do not see Him as He is. The centurion saw Jesus as He was. He said to Jesus, “You don’t have to come to my house. Stand right here and speak the word only and my servant shall be healed.”
Jesus was moved to such a great extent by the centurion’s declaration of faith that He said, “There never has been any greater faith in all the world than that which this man has demonstrated.”
Make this declaration:
I serve an unlimited God. His unlimited power is resident within me.
