14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: 5 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. (1 John 5:14-15 KJV)
God can grant PERMANENT RELIEF from your situation!
While my team and I were doing some t-shirt printing in St. Kitts for World AIDS Day 2011 this week, a television commercial caught my attention. The dramatist asked listeners this question. "How can you get back pain relief that lasts up to 15 hours?" He went on to encourage viewers to try a particular medication.
I had to smile to myself simply because I believe he was doing a great job at getting his message out and I believe that many people were going to ask their doctor about the pharmacy product on their next visit. I then reflected on what JESUS CHRIST wants to do for all of us.
He doesn't want to grant us temporary relief, but rather PERMANENT RELIEF and DELIVERANCE from our issues. In the early parts of John 5, not the scripture under review today, but the Epistle of John, an impotent man has been waiting around the Pool of Bethesda for a long time for the troubling of the water, so he can get his healing. Each time the water was stirred, someone beats him to the pool and gets their relief before.
One day, Jesus passes by and inquires of this man if he wanted healing. He explains his situation to the master and Jesus brings PERMANENT RELIEF by speaking a few words. John 5:8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
Things changed instantly and immediately!
Friend, I don't know what your situation is right now. I really don't know how heavy your burden is. There is one thing I do know though. It is that if we ASK anything according to God's will, he heareth us. Once God hears, he will answer. (NOTE: Not in our time, but his time)
Aren't you ready for PERMANENT RELIEF? Those people you've been telling about your situation, (let me be plain and frank), many of them JUST DON'T CARE. They listen and tell others behind your back. So, pause on telling them from TODAY. Tell Jesus - He's ready to grant you PERMANENT RELIEF - PERMANENT DELIVERANCE and a new HOPE to live on!
HOPE IS INDEED AHEAD! Stay Believing!
