Dear Partners and Friends,
There are no impossible situations where the Lord is concerned. God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all we ask or think. With God nothing is impossible. All things are possible to the one who believes. Faith connects us to the ability of God.
But, faith begins where the will of God is known. The question mark stops the flow of faith from connecting to God’s ability. Just like the man full of leprosy described in Luke 5:12, you may know The Lord is able to heal you, save your child, or help you financially. Do you believe it is His will? This man came to Jesus and fell on his face before Him. His cry was, “Lord, if you want to, you can make me clean.” At that moment, Jesus reached out His hand and touched the man. There was no power flow. There was no connection to the healing power in Jesus. But, when Jesus said, “I will…” the healing power flowed. Immediately, the leprosy left him.
I love the Wuest translation of Jesus’ reply, “My heart desires it. Be cleansed at once!” I can hear the Master saying those words. I can hear the desire and heart’s cry of the Father to help His children physically, financially, and in every part of their lives. Our Heavenly Father wants to remove the question mark and replace it with His exclamation point. He wants you to know that His desire is to help you.
As a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ, to know the things that are a mystery to the natural mind is something promised to us. Look at Luke 8:10.
He said to them, To you it has been given to [come progressively to] know (to recognize and understand more strongly and clearly) the mysteries and secrets of the kingdom of God, Luke 8:10a AMP
Receive this! Take it! It is yours by inheritance. The Lord says it has been given to us. That means we have it now. Declare and give voice authorization saying, “I have the ability to know the secrets of how my Father’s kingdom operates. I recognize and understand more strongly and clearly the ways of the kingdom.”
Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: Ephesians 1:8-9
Wisdom and understanding are abounding toward us. Jesus is made unto us wisdom (I Corinthians 1:30). This wisdom makes us know the will. Knowing the will of God connects us to the flow of His power. This is why the Holy-Spirit-inspired-prayer in Ephesians 1:18 says, “that you may know what is the hope of His calling, that you may know the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, that you may know what is the exceeding greatness of His power towards us…”
He wants you to know these things so that you can access them. God’s will should never be followed by a question mark in our minds. His will should always have an exclamation point!
For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; Colossians 1:9
How would you act if you were filled with the knowledge of God’s will? I can tell you how my actions have changed since I have started walking in the knowledge of His will. I have confidence. I pray with the answer in my mouth. I don’t let my emotions guide my thoughts.
I am filled with the knowledge of God’s will so I know that all things are working together for my good. I know that no weapon formed against me is able to prosper. I know that I always have all sufficiency in all things. I abound to every good work. I am like a tree planted by the rivers of living water. I bring forth fruit in my season. My leaf does not wither. Everything I put my hand to prospers. Do you get the picture? Partner, I am praying for you to be filled with the knowledge of the Father’s will for your life in all wisdom and spiritual understanding!
