KEY COMPONENTS FOR HEALING: ACTION
The scriptures teach us, “Knock and it shall be opened unto you.” Knocking is acting. So often we find ourselves trudging through life looking at our feet or simply sitting in the mud. We think that we are all alone and forsaken. We may cry out to God in anguish. We think He isn’t there. When in reality He has been patiently standing there waiting for us to just look up. Looking up is acting. It showing that we more than just believe, but that we are willing to try to move forward on our own. When He sees us take that first step that is when He steps in and helps us keep taking more. Acting also helps us regain control. When we need to heal, we normally feel we have lost control.
To act instead of being acted upon. When I choose to be inactive or place myself in a state of being acted upon, I give Satan greater power in my life.
Q: How is action related to healing?
A: Action is the point where belief turns into faith.
When we act in FAITH, moving along on a GOOD path, we OPEN the door to GRACE.
COURAGE TO ACT OPENS THE DOOR TO GRACE WHICH IS THE KEY TO HEALING.
Q: What are the major Roadblocks to acting in faith?
A: PROCRASTINATION and FEAR keep us in the acted upon position.
“If Satan can convince us that our fear is too great to act or that to act is a great idea, but to do it later, then he can prevent us from opening the door to GRACE.”
“The longer we remain in an inactive state the farther we drift from the Lord and His spirit.”
“The more often a person FEELS without ACTING the less he will be able ever to ACT, and in the long run the less he will be able to FEEL” – C.S. Lewis
Q: How do we overcome the tendency to procrastinate or shut down in fear?
A: Prayer is the simplest form of action. When you pray, you act in faith and open the door to blessings that God is already willing to grant, but that are made conditional upon our asking.
In your prayers be sure to speak openly, sincerely and directly to Him. Vague and passive
