Just Believe! Believe for miracle!!
By Pastor Lawrence
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.
The devil comes to kill and destroy us, but Jesus come that we may have life and have life more abundantly!!
There is no bad in God and no good in devil.
God wants to do good to us. God wants us to be happy! He wants us to be blessed in every sense of life!!
John 10:10 AMP
10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it [a]overflows).
God wants us to enjoy life to the full!!! 100% happiness!!
Anything bad we experience in life is not from God!
how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.
Healing is God doing good to us!
He does good to us by healing us! God wants to do good to us by healing us!!
People who are sick, they are oppressed by devil. The disease is an oppression from the devil, it is not from God!
Jesus is the expressed image of God!
We have never seen or touched the Lord physically. We do not know how He looks like. He is not for us to see with our human eyes. Jesus is the expressed image of God! Jesus is the exact representation of God! Jesus is the exact revelation of God!
Jesus when He was walking on earth, He went around healing the sick. Healing is God’s will for us!!
Jesus is the the will of God in action!!
Jesus is the will of God in action and motion.
Healing is not for a select chosen few. Healing is not a luxury for select few. Healing is for everyone!!!
It is God’s will for every person to be healed!!
A Gentile Shows Her Faith
Then Jesus went out from there and departed to the region of Tyre and Sidon.
And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon- possessed.”
She was desperate.
But He answered her not a word.
And His disciples came and urged Him, saying, “Send her away, for she cries out after us.”
But He answered and said, “ I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
Then she came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, help me!”
If u wanna a miracle to happen to u, u must first expect a miracle!! Our expectation is not based on how good we are, but on how good Jesus is!!
There is power in worship! Every time we worship the Lord, something good will happen to us!!
Heroes in the old testament, when they worship and they will always bring something that worth a lot to them to worship the Lord!
But He answered and said, “ It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.”
And she said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.”
Then Jesus answered and said to her, “ O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour.
Even the little puppies, they eat of the crumbs.
This shows the woman’s faith! She saw the grace of the Lord! She believed in the goodness and grace of the Lord!!!
She was not supposed to receive, but she believed in the goodness of God. God responded to her faith!!
When we ask God for healing, He will give us the healing we desire! God wanna us to simply ask and we shall receive!!!
In spite of circumstances, believe in God’s word!
Look at the word of God! Let our eyes be on Jesus and on Him alone!!
Jesus Walks on the Sea
Immediately Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He sent the multitudes away. And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there. But the boat was now in the middle of the sea, tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary.
There were strong wind coming against the boat.
Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear.
But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “ Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.”
And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.”
So He said, “ Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!”
When the Lord gave him the word Come, Peter walked on water! It was not ice! It was water! Peter walked on the word Come! He was not walking on the water. He was walking on the Word COME!!
But when Peter looked at the circumstances, he was afraid and became to sink!
The moment we look at the circumstances around us, we no longer able to do the supernatural!
Even though Peter sank, he called out to the Lord and immediately the Lord caught him! He Lord saved him!
Peter doubted by looking at the circumstances.
What are the circumstances that are negative in our lives? Do not look at that! It takes as much energy to think of positive and negative.
Our hope is not based on ourselves. Our Hope is based on our God who is good and wanna do good to us!! He wanna us do the supernatural! God is in our lives!
Don’t look at the circumstances.
Believe in God’s word and it is not based on feeling!
Faith is not depending on feeling!
The same God in Pastor Lawrence’s life is the same God in our lives! Don’t give up believing!!
Keep our eyes on Jesus!!
Don’t look and FEEL for things to happen. Just stand upon the word of God and believe!!
Believe it and we shall have it!!
By His stripes, we are healed!!
Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
Griefs- kholee means sickness
Sorrow makib means pain
Isaiah 53:5 (YLT)
And he is pierced for our transgressions, Bruised for our iniquities, The chastisement of our peace [is] on him, And by his bruise there is healing to us.
1 Peter 2:24
who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.
Stripes (Molopi, singular)
Every itches of Jesus’ back were been beaten. There was one whole stripe on His back. No part of Him was not striped! Every part of Him are striped!! It was one whole stripe!
Healing is for everyone!!
In hope, Abraham believed.
(as it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did; who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, “So shall your descendants be.” And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. And therefore “it was accounted to him for righteousness.”
Everything was contrary to what the Lord had told him. Yet he believed!
In hope, he believed.
Contrary to what we believe, if God says it, He will do it!
In hopeless situation, keep on believing that God has a great plan for me!!
Don’t settle for average!!
God loves us!!
Things are going to change! This is the day for us to receive our miracle! Expect miracle and miracle will happen to us!!!
We are forgiven of all our sins!!
As a child of God, all our sins are forgiven!!
We are forgiven! When we believe it, something happen to us! God has already forgiven us!!!
We don’t have to confess to be forgiven. Our sins are forgiven. We don’t confess to persuade God! God is persuaded!
Only believe the Lord is good!!
God said in the bible that he gives us sweet sleep.
Don’t focus on the things that contradict the word of God. Focus on God’s word and we shall have it!
