Topic: It Is Already Done [Monday January 22nd, 2018]
“Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.” Luke 18:5 (KJV)
In the book of Luke chapter 18, Jesus told the story of the unrighteous judge and the widow who desperately needed something from him. By his character, the judge would not have lifted a finger to help the woman, but he had to attend to her speedily because she refused to take a no for an answer. She knew he had the capacity to give her what she needed and so she was not moved by his unreceptive attitude. She just refused to budge. If that could happen to people who had no covenant, what about you? Child of God, the key is knowing what belongs to you and going all out for it.
Beloved, in my walk with God, I have discovered that fulfilment in life is not the exclusive preserve of a special privileged few. Rather, it is available to all who know and dare to appropriate their rights in Christ. I want you to understand that all things are already yours. You must have what I call the ‘it is already done mentality’. You must understand that God is not going to do it, but has already done it.
Free yourself of struggle and anxiety because you already know that all things have been freely given to you. The healing you desire has already been provided. The husband or wife you so desire has already been provided. When Jesus gave His life on the Cross it was to pay for everything you would ever need. When you have this understanding, you will lay hold on all that God has prepared for you. You do not come before Him begging for what He has already provided. No! You collect and thank Him for it.
Be assured that in every area of life, God is committed to blessing you. He will do for you what you cannot do for yourself. He will open your eyes to see the hidden treasure of secret places. He will fill your mouth with testimonies. You will surely, testify. Your miracle will not be aborted.
