Know that you can change
Many times we can believe that this is how we will be and we cannot be changed. When I met my husband while we were courting I told him that I was suicidal and if he couldn’t handle it he could leave. So right there I was telling him I am who I am and I can’t change but believing that you can’t change a negative situation only keeps you longer in that situation. I sat in church week after week only to go home feeling in despair and undefeated. I played church but as I was playing my soul was dying.
Accept you may not always get help
“When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he had already been there a long time in that condition, He said to him, “Do you wish to get well?” The sick man answered Him. “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, but while I am coming another steps down before me. Jesus said to him, “Get up, pick up your pallet and walk.
There is a song that says sometimes you have to encourage yourself. Sometimes you have to speak victory during the test. And no matter how you feel speak over yourself encourage yourself in the Lord. As I sat in church I wish someone anybody would say hey Tamara do you need help? But nobody could hear my cry. I thought what’s wrong why can’t I get some help here? This was my battle, and if I was going to be free I had to take up my bed which meant take my problem, my situation on my back to Christ. God asked the man if he wanted to be healed and God said you have to bring your situation to me. I had to pick up my suicide walk to Jesus and be healed. I had to make a decision in my mind that I was going to come to Christ with my suicide, low-self-esteem, promiscuity, jealous heart and pessimest thinking.
Believe God for your deliverance
FAITH. For some this is a complicated word but it simply means believe. That man had to believe he was going to be healed it’s not just a matter of just saying it but believing in his heart it was going to happen. Do you want to know why I believe that believing makes a difference? Let’s take this example, you have a job interview you believe you will not get the job so you go in believing that you have already failed. You say it’s no use in trying the position is already filled. But if you go into the interview believing that you have the job then your attitude will reflect confidence on your interview and you will get the job.
Don’t sit on your problems and expect others to help you through them only Jesus and help you solve them but you have to confess your sins first before he can heal you. I pray that whatever is holding you back from your full potential you lay every weight every burden every care every problem aside place it at the feet of Jesus so that you can be made whole.
