The last convenant service in the month of January brought about a deeper revelation into the word of God in which I find it necessary to share.
The man of God message was centered on the Divine provision and care for God’s faithful flock.
As he buttress his point on God’s care for us as his faithful children,he made a point that got me thinking and have a change of heart.
As their has been a misconception of the term suffering amongst believer.
He said ” suffering in term for believers is persecution NOT affliction, sickness or diseases”.
You see,this statement was made and I got the point.
Joseph wasn’t suffering from a physical ailments but was put into prison because of him standing for holiness and so this means he was persecuted.
Daniel wasn’t sick or suffering from diseases but he was thrown into the lion’s den as a result of his Christian faith which means he was persecuted.
Infact, Elijah’s request for death wasn’t done on a bed of sickness or affliction but due to the persecution he was facing from Jezebel.
And I can go on but let me stop here….
All this point proof to us that the word “suffering” as a believer is not synonymous to affliction, sickness or diseases.
It’s time for us as believers to Know our right in the Lord and claim it.
NO! Not at all!
That sickness is not meant for you neither is that disease part of God’s plan for your life.
Infact, let me tell you this, Lazarus didn’t get to heaven because he was poor,sick and there was sore all over him. He got to heaven because he was HOLY!
Enough of mistaking affliction and sickness with holiness.
Enough of mistaking sicknesses and diseases as a pass for heaven.
He called healing the children’s bread in Matthew 15:26.
Arise and tear off the veil that Satan has use to hold you spell bound for you are a child of God and you need not continue in pain, affliction and suffering.
Do not allow the devil to rub you of God’s blessings by giving you a wrong interpretation of his word.
Claim his promises in your life, and work it out with faith and you will enjoy the fullness of his blessings.
