2 Corinthians 4:18
F F Bosworth
In Hebrews 10:35-36 God says to all whose faith is based on
His Word, “Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath
great recompense of reward. For ye have need of patience, that,
after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the
“For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the
beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end” (Heb. 3:14).
Many act directly contrary to this.
After being anointed and prayed for,
instead of rejoicing in the promise of God, I have
heard some say in disappointment, “I thought sure I was going to be healed.”
I knew instantly that they had never caught the idea of what faith is.
Their idea was to get well first, and then to believe that God had heard prayer.
If God’s Word were the sole reason for their expectation,
they would have held fast the
beginning of their confidence.
It is never Proper or reasonable to cast away your confidence as long as you have the Word of God as its basis.
It is promised that we shall be partakers only on the condition that we “hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast”.
During the interim between God’s promise and its
fulfillment, instead of watching symptoms and casting away his
confidence because he had nothing visible to encourage him,
Abraham did exactly the reverse.
By “looking unto the promise of
God, he wavered not through unbelief; but waxed strong in
faith, giving glory to God” (Rom. 4:20 RV).
After marching around the walls of Jericho, Joshua and the children of Israel did not cast away their confidence because the walls of the city were still up. Their faith
was based on God’s Word: “I have given unto thine hand Jericho.”
If none of these cast away their confidence, why should you?
Your state of mind should be the same as Noah’s when he
was building a ship on dry land and putting pitch into the cracks
to keep the water out.
In his mind, the fact of a coming flood was fully settled, and the Word of God was the sole reason for this state of mind.
Your state of mind should be the same as Abraham’s.
With him, the matter of Isaac being born was fully settled, even though all the symptoms were to the contrary.
God’s Word to you concerning your healing is just as clear and
explicit as it was to Abraham.
It is never proper to base faith on our improvement after prayer. I have heard some say, with great delight, “Oh, I am so much better since I was prayed for; now I know I will get well.”
This means that in the place of God’s promise they have some
other reason for expecting to get well.
*Whether symptoms go or linger – our confession stays the same. EVERYONE MUST BELIEVE FOR HEALING, QUICKENING AND REJUVENATION!!
EVERYONE IS GETTING OLDER. THE LIFE OF GOD WILL PREVENT YOUR SYSTEMS FROM BREAKING DOWN. IF YOU WILL SPEAK THE WORD OF GOD OVER YOUR BODY DAILY – EVEN THOUGH YOU AGE – IT WILL NOT BE SORROWFUL. WITH LONG LIFE HE WILL SATISFY YOU AND SHOW YOU HIS SALVATION!!! WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT A HEALING HERE AND THERE – WE ARE TALKING ABOUT ENTERING INTO A LIFESTYLE OF HEALTH.
THE JUST SHALL LITERALLY LIVE BY FAITH. AND THE LIFE I NOW LIVE I LIVE BY FAITH IN THE SON OF GOD WHO GAVE HIMSELF UP FOR ME.
PURPOSE TO MOVE INTO HEALTH! THEN YOUR HEALING VICTORIES WILL BE EASIER BECAUSE THERE IS A CONSTANT STREAM OF THE LIFE OF GOD AS YOU SPEAK OVER YOUR CONSTANT HEALTH! THIS GLORIFIES GOD!
