The Believing Christian's Unique Position!






A Believing Christian Is In An Unique Position
When He Desires His Holy God 
To Act In His Behalf!

Let Me Explain:

Take As A For Instance - ILLNESS!

Believing Christian Makes His First Move:

"Father, I Am Ill!
I Can Do Nothing To Heal or Help Myself!
You Are My Helper
My Healer
My Savior
My Sealer
Have Mercy On Me!"

BUT, THEN

Believing Christian Realizes ... Something
From Having Read 
AND
Believed 
God's Holy Word

AND, HE ADDS ...

... Not Wanting To Ask God Anything Amiss ...

"Heal Me, Lord!
... According To Your Will
AND
In Your Way
In Jesus Christ's Holy Name I Plead!"

BUT, THEN ...

He Thinks, Yet Again
Of The Holy Word's Word
And Says ... With Mustard Seed Faith ...

"Lord, Heal Me!
I Know You Can Heal Me
And Even If You Don't
I Shall Still Love And Honor 
AND
Worship You!"

AND, THEN ...

From His Storehouse Of The Holy Word
His Faithful Heart Says ...

"I Want To Be Healed
BUT
Though You Slay Me, Lord
Yet and Still ... I Will Trust You!"

All Through This Time
Believing Christian Thinks Of The Many
Who Heard The Words:

"Take Up Thy Bed And ... WALK!"

"Thy Faith Has Made Thee Whole!"

"Be Ye Healed!"

"Go Thy Way! It Is Done As Thou Asked!"

"Go! And Sin No More!"


AND, His Heart SINGS ...

"I Know That My Redeemer Liveth
And That He Shall Stand
At The Latter Day
(That Final Day)
Upon This Very Earth
(Where I Stand)
And Though Worms Destroy 
My Mortal Corruptible Body
Yet ... In This Flesh 
(My Very Own Flesh)
And With My Own Eyes
(Not Those Of Another)
I Shall See My God
(Face To Faith)!"

AND ...

His Faith Is Made Strong
Even Though His Answer
Received From The Eternal God
IS


"My Grace
IS
Sufficient 
For Thee!"

His Body
IS 
Not Whole
BUT
His Heart 
IS
Full ... and Overflowing!

AND ...



 He Is At Peace 
In His Rest(ing) 
In His Eternal Holy God!

Yes!
The Believing Christian's 
Position
Is An Unique One!
