The Lord is My Strength. In Christ Alone I Put My Trust

Healing, Hope, Faith, Trust, Believing
In all these, the Lord is my strength.  In Christ alone, I put my trust.

"Too many times, we get our attention focused on the wrong thing. When it comes to healing, we consider our own bodies and the symptoms that try to attack our bodies. That is what we are thinking about and looking at, and the more we look at the symptoms, the worse we get."

   "Center your attention and your mind on what Jesus has done for you and what He is doing for you as your High Priest. Jesus is doing something for you right now. He is seated at the right hand of God right now making intercession for you. (Hebrews 7:25)"

   I'm feeling some symptoms in my body that shouldn't be there.  I read these quotes in Kenneth Hagin's Bible Faith Study Course tonight.  He sights many scriptures about believing not just wishing or hoping.  Believing is faith.  Hoping is wishing.  These are some of the verses I read in the book,

"Jesus said, 'According to your faith be it unto you'" Matthew 9:29

Jesus "Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses" Matthew 8:17.

"...the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?" Psalm 27:1.

"Jesus said in Mark 11:24, 'What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.'"

"I believe what the Bible says, not what I see and hear. My faith is not in what I can see and hear.  My faith is based on what God says. You see, when we develop our faith to the place where we believe what the Word says regardless of circumstances and physical symptoms, then we are believing the right thing, and that's what brings results." Kenneth Hagin

I believe that I am walking in divine health and healing.  "In Christ alone, I put my trust."

God bless you all.  "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make straight your path." Proverbs 3:5-6

May I suggest?

  1. Dear Laura, Trust in God and don't put your faith in your faith!!
    What that means is read those scriptures and rest in His timing and do what you can do to relieve the symptoms.He will help you overcome! Blessings to you!

  2. Sounds to me like you're on the track that works best for you in feeling these body symptoms. Hopefully they'll dissipate soon! :)

    Stopping over from Together on Tuesdays!

  3. Thank you for this encouraging post and all these great Scripture verses. I love to trust these verses as someone who has a chronic illness. I appreciate you sharing your post with us at Together on Tuesdays, too!

  4. Thank you, Life, Breath Present.

  5. Thank you so much Roxy. I'll do that. Bless you.

    I've got tingling in my lips and face. The nurse practitioner at church says that symptom is always due to anxiety when people come to the ER. Life is getting to me I guess.

  6. You're welcome, Lisa. I live with chronic pain, but this is challenging me.

  7. I looked at the date of this post, and it occurred to me how God has spared your life nearly 2 years after this post! Praise His name forevermore. satan is a liar, and the truth is not in him. I do trust your physical needs have been alleviated by now, and you are feeling much better, in Jesus' name!

    1. Yes, Cheryl. At the time I wrote the post, I was home alone, had no way to contact anyone, and thought I might be having a heart attack. It turned out that it was something much less sinister. Praise God!

  8. God will meet our needs in His way. Glad you are choosing to trust Him.

  9. I loved that quote by Kennith that I just copied and pasted it and printed it out to give to some folks who I know need it. Thanks for sharing your faith girl. I will be pinning this to share too. Happy to find it at the homemaking party today... I always get a blessing at your blog.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.
