Is it Too Good to be True?
John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
Can this be true? Jesus has made provision for us to have life, a life overflowing in abundant health, free from sickness, disease and pain?
Perhaps you are thinking. “Oh, this just sounds too good to be true! How can this even be a possibility when my body is suffering, sickness is overtaking me, and the pain is almost unbearable, and I feel like I have very little life left in me?”
The answer is simple. Believe Jesus and His Word. Accept His Word as truth.
The real issue is not what you know about Jesus or the Word but what do you really believe. Many people know, recite, even preach the Word but in actuality do not believe the Word.
How can I say such a thing? Simple, Mark 11:23 says “believe and receive”. If you’re not receiving what Jesus promised – health, healing, wholeness, abundance of life – then there must be a believing problem. Perhaps it’s time to do some self-examination and ask yourself “what if” these words that sound “too good to be true” really are true? Maybe you need to ask, “What must I know to be fully convinced of the truth of these statements?”
First and foremost, you need to know and believe Jesus is the Son of God. Num. 23:19 God is not a man that he should lie; neither the son of man that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? Since God cannot lie then as the Son of God – Jesus cannot lie! Every word He ever spoke must be absolute, unconditional, unqualified truth.
Jesus said He came so you can live and have life in abundance. A life of abundance is free of sickness, disease and pain. Isaiah 53:4-5 states, by his stripes YOU are healed. 1Peter 2:24 says, by his stripes YOU were healed… God cannot lie so it must be true. Trust and believe God’s Word and begin to state boldly “by the stripes of Jesus I AM Healed!
Trusting and believing the Word of God has been such an incredible blessing. I KNOW truth can change facts. Diagnosed with a tumor so large the doctor could not determine where it began or ended, was not sure as to the type of cancer, I turned to the Lord and began to trust Him and His Word. He proved totally faithful. In six weeks, the tumor was completely gone and the doctor could not explain where it had gone. But I knew. Jesus had healed me and given me abundance of life. If He would do it for me He will do it for you. It is not too good to be true!”
