For too many years though, I had absolutely no idea that God wanted to bless me. Instead, I thought that God was this great big Judge, Jury, and Jailer, who was waiting for me to mess up so that He could convict me, sentence me, and then zap me into oblivion for some stupid mistake I made. Sound familiar?
When God healed me though, I discovered that He was not who I had Him pegged to be. Of course He was the God who saved me, but He also showed me that not only did He save me from an eternity in hell, He saved me from a miserable life on earth, too! He also showed me that He is a gentleman, He is kind, loving, generous, gentle, and my list can go on and on. But another thing I learned about God is that He actually WANTS to bless me! He wants to give me things, and He wants me to receive them gladly.
You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it. ~Matthew 21:22, NLT
The night I was healed, God actually gave me a whole lot more than I ever thought was possible. Not only did He heal my mind from the many years of verbal and emotional abuse that plagued me, He also put me back together mentally, emotionally, and then began a physical healing inside me!
God gave me more self-esteem, more confidence, and a presence about me that people actually notice. I didn't know it was there, but it is. This didn't happen overnight, but the process began in an instant.
Maybe you feel as if things in your life are hopeless. They aren't. Maybe you feel as if no one cares. They do. Maybe you think God has forgotten you. He hasn't. He is crazy about you! He wants to bless you. He loves you and wants you to let Him. It might seem way out there, but honestly God does not want you to hurt or be hurt. So if there are things going bad in your life, you can be assured that God is not the cause of it!
God is a God of abundance. He created you for great things and has great big plans for you. So right where you are, why not ask Him to help you? He's just a breath away. And you can be confident that with God, you will get a whole lot more than you ever expected.
