God’s favor and healing

Lord, why are you not giving me favor from heaven? I am a born-again believer. I asked for favor in my work place but You did not send it. I asked for favor to get a new Job or a promotion but you did not give it. Why?

Rehoboam, the Son of Solomon, was king over Judah but he did evil in the eyes of the Lord, he sinned before God. What was his sin? He did not seek the Lord!

2 Chronicles 12:14 NKJV “And he did evil, because he did not prepare his heart to seek the Lord.”

Many people, after they are born-again, never spend any time with the Lord. They never seek Him.

God gives favor to those who seek Him. The Father, Yahweh, Jesus, Yeshua and the Holy Spirit, Rauch Ha-kodesh, are ALL One and They are the Word of God. (John 1:1; John 1:14; 1 John 5:7). You seek the Lord by reading, studying, and meditating on the Word of God.

Proverbs 11:27 NKJV “He who earnestly seeks good finds favor, But trouble will come to him who seeks evil.”

Proverbs 3:1-4 NKJV “My son, do not forget my law, But let your heart keep my commands; For length of days and long life And peace they will add to you. Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart, And so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man.”

When we make the choice to seek out God’s wisdom and to obey His Word, He will give us favor before Him and man.

Matthew 6:33 NKJV “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”

Hebrews 11:6 NKJV “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

Remember, God is the Word of God so we seek the Lord by reading, studying, and meditating on the Word of God.

Any unrepentant sin can keep you out of the favor of God.

2. Healing

God, I prayed for healing, but You did not heal me. Why?

Your Word says in Isaiah 53:4-5 YLT “Surely our sicknesses he hath borne, And our pains — he hath carried them, And we — we have esteemed him plagued, Smitten of God, and afflicted. And he is pierced for our transgressions, Bruised for our iniquities, The chastisement of our peace [is] on him, And by his bruise there is healing to us.”

Forgiveness of sin and healing happened at the same time.

Sin is simply disobedience to the Word of God. We exercise our faith by believing in, trusting in and obeying the Word of God. That is the definition of faith in the New Testament.

I spoke this Word (Isaiah 53:4-5) over my body, but no healing took place. Why?

Remember, sin separates you from God. God is His Word. When you are in sin you are separated from the Word of God in Isaiah 53:4-5.

Romans 6:23 NKJV “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

The Word death means separation from God, from His Word. Every time you sin you are separated from God. You must repent: uproot the seeds of sin that you have sown): turn from your sin, disobedience to the Word of God, and turn back to God, and make the choice to obey His Word; then ask for forgiveness in the name of Jesus. Forgive everyone who has ever harmed you; forgive yourself for the hurt that you have done to others and to the heart of God.

Isaiah 59:2 NKJV “But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear.”

Jeremiah 5:25 NKJV “Your iniquities have turned these things away, And your sins have withheld good from you.”

What is one of the main sin that believers commit, that keeps them from receiving healing? Holding unforgiveness. Forgiveness and healing are a package deal. Why? We were healed by Jesus forgiving us. If we hold unforgiveness towards another person we are restricting the flow of forgiveness.

Matthew 6:14-15 NKJV β€œFor if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

Our ticket into the kingdom of God is by the blood of Jesus cleansing us from sin and forgiving us. But when we hold unforgiveness towards another person we enter back into sin and Matthew 6:15 tells we will not be forgiven. “But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

Remember, forgiveness and healing are intricately connected. You must be forgiven to receive God’s supernatural healing.

If the Father in Heaven cannot forgive us then we are not in the Kingdom of God and we are not entitled to its benefits, including healing.

What are the benefits? Psalm 103:1-5 NKJV “Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”

3 John 1:2 NKJV “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”

Notice friends, your soul: mind, emotions and will, must bless the Lord; “as your soul prospers.” In other words, you have made the choice to obey His Word.

Also, again Notice, that healing and forgiveness of sin occurred at the same time: “Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases.”

YOU MUST FORGIVE EVERYONE WHO HAS EVER HARMED YOU! If you do not, then healing and forgiveness will not be yours.

Keep in mind that any unrepentant sin can keep you from receiving healing.

If you need to repent (uproot the seeds of sin that you have sown): turn from your sin, disobedience to the Word of God, and turn back to God, and make the choice to obey His Word; then ask for forgiveness in the name of Jesus, do it! Forgive everyone who has ever harmed you; forgive yourself for the hurt that you have done to others and to the heart of God.
