We cannot ever say that we have been saved by faith or by grace alone, we must put both together..

Ephesians 2:8
For it is by GRACE you have been saved, through FAITH--and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--

Before we ever lived a day on this earth God had already gone before us and anticipated our every need. He did this through Grace, he knew how many people would populate the earth, he knew how much air we would need, he knew how the atmosphere needed to be, he knew that the sun needed to warm us, he prepared the food supply, he supplied the animals, trees, and water, he planned ahead for our shelter… He even made everything to be able to procreate, trees have seeds so they can continue to replenish themselves… Animals replenish themselves .. they procreate and multiply..

There's no stone left unturned in God supplying all of our needs long before we ever were born… In fact God didn't make man until the fifth day day… He made everything else anticipating that he would create man… we were never an after thought.. WE WERE THE REASON FOR EVERYTHING ELSE...But before he made us, he made sure that we had food to eat, a place to live, warmth, and all of the other marvelous things needed for sustaining life and godliness.

Genesis 1:26-31
26 Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.”
So God created human beings in his own image.    In the image of God he created them;    male and female he created them.
28 Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground.”
29 Then God said, “Look! I have given you every seed-bearing plant throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food.30 And I have given every green plant as food for all the wild animals, the birds in the sky, and the small animals that scurry along the ground—everything that has life.” And that is what happened.
31 Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was very good!

God's anticipation of our every need still holds true today. He just didn't stop that day taking care of us and supplying our every need… No he did something even greater… He sent his son to save us !

Jesus paid the price for everything in advance of our need.. God once again sent his son in anticipation to provide a way for us to spend eternity with him. Jesus died so that we could have salvation, divine health, so that we could have provision  in every area of our lives… So that we could have peace and joy… and victory over sin and death...


 He has already provided everything we need ..that is his amazing GRACE  but we need to activate our FAITH to appropriate God's grace.

Faith alone does not move God, it only appropriates what God has already provided by Grace..

We must avoid cause and effect Christianity… It is a trap that makes us always feel like we have to do something or be better to get the hand of God to move..

Faith is ultimately just a positive response on our part to what God has already done for us by his grace..

Before we were hungry, God made food… Before we needed healing, God bought our health on the cross, we need to mix faith and grace and stop dying in the wilderness!
We must reach out and take what God has already  provided for us… We've already got it, we just need to take it… We need to stop
Begging God to do something and start understanding that he's already done it.

How do we do that? The Bible says to renew our mind…… Don't look at your problems, look at how big your God is and receive God's promises! Start changing the way you think, start realizing what you have available to you by grace through faith!
If God's Word says it, then you can have it… Does what you need line up with God's will? If so, then it can be yours!

When you get stuck, just say "help me Father to receive".. we don't need to spend all of our time trying to get God to do something… Instead, thank Him for sending his son to the cross ..say, "thank you that I know my healing has already been taken care of through Jesus's death on the cross!" DECLARE IT! RECEIVE IT!  in the name of JESUS… Take it!!
The word recieve translated from Hebrew means, TO TAKE..this is an action that we apply through faith!

My friends it's time for us to realize how powerful God is, and if he was so careful to supply our every need before he even created us, won't he most certainly take care of everything else we need?..He  has already supplied it, he  has already anticipated it… Let's activate our faith and receive! It's time to walk by faith and not by sight… It's time to walk in the power that we have received from on high through salvation… And it's time we learn how to release it into the circumstances of our life!
 It's time to stop letting our inabilities take on a greater focus than God's ability!
God bless you all!
