You Have A Friend In Jesus

For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold  From those who walk uprightly.   O LORD of hosts,  Blessed is the man who trusts in You!  Psalm 84:11-12

“Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”   Matthew 11:28

Jesus Christ to whom is given all power and authority in heaven and earth has invited us to come unto Him in time of need.  He does not want us to struggle and war with things that we as mere humans cannot fix. He wants us to come unto Him in all faith that He will work out things for our good.  He is near to us in all that we can call upon Him for.  He is more than able to supply all things needed for soul, mind and body be it a financial breakthrough or a physical healing. No matter what the problem or need is all things are possible with God. We are admonished to cast all of our cares upon the Lord for God gives grace to the humble and will perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle us (1Peter 5:7-10).  We can place all of our burdens under the blood, and expect God to move for us and our loved ones because He has a covenant with us, took the curse up on himself to set us free from it and became poor so that we might become rich and righteous. God’s word is unchanging:

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich 2 Corinthians 8:9

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, Ephesians 1:3

Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”), Galatians 3:13

Our help is in the name of the LORD, Who made heaven and earth. Psalm 124:8

Our Lord Jesus Christ, though He was rich, yet for our sakes He became poor, that we through His poverty might become rich. Poverty, sickness, disease, lack and demons are curses not blessings. And we have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, not cursed. As the seed of Abraham we were called to inherit a blessing and to be a blessing. Through faith and patience we inherit all the promises of God and receive out expected end just like Job did for God desires that we prosper and be in health even as our soul prospers. He desires that not just that our needs would be met, but also over and above anything we could ever ask or dream.  Because of Jesus and our trust in Him our provision is on its way for Jesus endured absolute poverty and degradation for our sakes. It is our divine call and destiny to have abundance in all things and to be blessed in spirit, soul, mind and body. God’s word is unchanging:

And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always {and} under all circumstances {and} whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation].  As it is written, He [the benevolent person] scatters abroad; He gives to the poor; His deeds of justice {and} goodness {and} kindness {and} benevolence will go on {and} endure forever!  And [God] Who provides seed for the sower and bread for eating will also provide and multiply your [resources for] sowing and increase the fruits of your righteousness [which manifests itself in active goodness, kindness, and charity]. Thus you will be enriched in all things {and} in every way, so that you can be generous, and [your generosity as it is] administered by us will bring forth thanksgiving to God. 2 Corinthians 9:8-11 Amplified Bible

So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please {and} purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11 Amplified Bible

From the richest to the poorest, from the oldest to the youngest, and from the educated to the uneducated, we all have the same source of victory. It’s not our material possessions, our natural wisdom, nor our credentials. Victory is available to each of us because of what Christ has already done for us. It’s His victory. He won the battle. Our victory comes as we enter into His victory, and that victory can only be apprehended through faith. The very moment we take a step of faith, the very moment we pray, God gives us the answer. The very moment God hears us, He has commanded His angels to bring the answer to us. But there is a war going on for we are living in a spiritual warfare. We have an enemy called Satan who is out to kill steal and destroy and tries to delay the answer from coming through to us. He does this for many reason including try to make us accuse God of unfaithulness and take us captive by thoughts of fear, doubt and unbelief. But God has an appointed  deliverance for us.  We have a destined date with the blessing of the Lord.

God specializes in taking things broken and ruined and turning them into something beautiful for His through ones through His anointing.  The anointing breaks every yoke and lifts every burden and makes us laugh at the enemy.  He anoints us with joy and enables us to count all our testing and trials as joy. He gives us the garment of praise which brings about great deliverance for the thoughts of God towards us are good not evil to give us an anticipated end. God’s word is unchanging:

Praise the LORD! Blessed is the man who fears the LORD,  Who delights greatly in His commandments. His descendants will be mighty on earth;  The generation of the upright will be blessed.  Wealth and riches will be in his house, And his righteousness endures forever.  Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness;  He is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.  Psalm 112:1-4

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:10

Whatever our needs are, whatever the circumstances are, God promises His blessings to come to us in ABUNDANCE. The Amplified Version is right when it says …every favor and earthly blessing. What is an “earthly” blessing?  — Prosperity!  Financial abundance! Material abundance! Man is a spirit, he has a soul and he dwells in a body. God wants to bless our spirit, our soul and our body. Salvation includes every area of our life. Every yoke is broken. Jesus has set us free. And the blessing of the Lord brings wealth, AND HE ADDS NO TROUBLE TO IT.     Biblical prosperity is a gift of God. It is a double blessing. God does not only make us rich, He also gives us the ability and the peace to enjoy our prosperity. God’s word is unchanging:

Therefore I hated life because the work that was done under the sun was distressing to me, for all is vanity and grasping for the wind. Then I hated all my labor in which I had toiled under the sun, because I must leave it to the man who will come after me. And who knows whether he will be wise or a fool? Yet he will rule over all my labor in which I toiled and in which I have shown myself wise under the sun. This also is vanity.  Therefore I turned my heart and despaired of all the labor in which I had toiled under the sun.  For there is a man whose labor is with wisdom, knowledge, and skill; yet he must leave his heritage to a man who has not labored for it. This also is vanity and a great evil For what has man for all his labor, and for the striving of his heart with which he has toiled under the sun?  For all his days are sorrowful, and his work burdensome; even in the night his heart takes no rest. This also is vanity. Ecclesiastes 2:18-23

By humility and the fear of the LORD  Are riches and honor and life. Proverbs 22:4

Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!  Oh, fear the LORD, you His saints!  There is no want to those who fear Him.  The young lions lack and suffer hunger;  But those who seek the LORD shall not lack any good thing. Psalm 34:8-10

Yes, the Word of God tells us that God will meet our every need and make us rich if we fear Him: YES, THERE IS NO WANT TO THEM THAT FEAR HIM. While the young lions do lack, and suffer hunger those who seek the Lord shall not want any good. Hence we can come boldly to the throne of grace to find mercy and help in time and say:

“In the name of Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God, I lift my hands to You, God and pray that the healing and restoring power of God will come upon every area of my life, upon my spirit, upon my soul, upon my body, upon my character, upon my good name, upon my desires, upon my dreams, upon my aspirations and upon my finances. I break every curse. I pray that every financial attack will be turned into victory right now. By the authority of Jesus Christ, I command every evil thing and every bad circumstance to flee from me right now. I break the controlling power of sickness, lack, diseases, debt, credit and poverty. I ask You God to give me a supernatural flow of miracles. I thank you for it, I believe it and I receive it in Jesus’ name, amen and amen.

God will perform miracles for us as the battle belongs to the Lord! He will fight for us. He will revive our body again and restore all that we have lost. He who raised Lazarus from death will help us as well. As we turn our eyes towards Jesus,  He will lift us up from the valley of the shadow of death. His word is unchanging:

Strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, And the sons of the foreigner Shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.  But you shall be named the priests of the LORD,  They shall call you the servants of our God.  You shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, And in their glory you shall boast. Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, And instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion.  Therefore in their land they shall possess double;  Everlasting joy shall be theirs. “For I, the LORD, love justice;  I hate robbery for burnt offering;  I will direct their work in truth,  And will make with them an everlasting covenant.  Their descendants shall be known among the Gentiles, And their offspring among the people.  All who see them shall acknowledge them, That they are the posterity whom the LORD has blessed.” Isaiah 61:5-9

“The LORD will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the LORD your God is giving you.  “The LORD will establish you as a holy people to Himself, just as He has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the LORD your God and walk in His ways.  “Then all peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the LORD, and they shall be afraid of you.  “And the LORD will grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground, in the land of which the LORD swore to your fathers to give you.  “The LORD will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.  “And the LORD will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them. Deuteronomy 28:8-13

Gracious and loving God, You love us as a loving father, and cause us to be blessed and prosperous. We thank you that even the work of our hands is blessed and those blessings overtake us! We are your representatives in this earth and we have rights and privileges as sons and daughter to walk as Jesus walked and do what Jesus did when he was on the earth. We have cheerfully given our offerings and paid our tithes, planted our seed, and watered it with your word; therefore we are reaping a harvest of blessing at your hand. Souls will be brought into the kingdom; our bank accounts will prosper and be blessed. We are crowned with your favor, and we praise you for your goodness to us in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Father in heaven, we come to you in the name of Jesus Christ, who is the way to you, the truth of you and the life through you. I thank you that you provided healing for us at Calvary. In the name that is above every name that is named; we command cancers to die, blindness to go, diabetes to go, sickness, diseases and infirmities to let go of us – God’s creations. Father, we enforce the spirit of life and reject the spirit of death, and we will keep our bodies healthy and strong in Jesus’ name. Amen. And we loose the same Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead to heal and quicken our mortal bodies. We also loose ministering angels to meet and supply all our needs according to your richest in glory by Christ Jesus. And we thank you that you are for us with us and not against us and are a good God.  We confess that no weapon formed against us shall prosper including sicknesses and diseases. And we loose and welcome your saving, healing and delivering power. Amen and amen
