The God of the Now

In recent months, I have become more aware of a truth: the truth that God Almighty wants to be "The God of the Now" in our lives

Let me explain. Earlier this year, I was ministering in the western U.S. and in one of the services, a couple of people came forward for prayer. I asked them what they needed. One mentioned to me "I am trying to get healed." The other person also used the word "trying" in their request.

This word "trying" didn't settle just right in my heart. I went ahead and prayed for them, but later I went to the Lord about this "trying" situation. The Lord spoke to my heart about this and said, "My people are expecting me to do something in the future that I have already done for them in the past, but tell them I am the God of the Now ."

When the Lord spoke this to my heart, I understood exactly what He meant. God really doesn't have to do anything else for us to receive prosperity, healing or salvation. He's already done it! When Jesus came to earth He redeemed (repurchased, rescued) mankind from the curse of the law. What we are in need of has already been legally purchased for us, so we need to obtain what is already rightfully ours!

How? by faith in the Word of God. Hebrews 11:1 states, "Now faith is...." In other words, "Now the Word of God is...." The rest of Hebrews 11:1 reads as follows: "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Then Jesus said in Mark 1:24, "Therefore, I say unto you, Whatsoever things ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them." God never said He is the great "I WAS," but rather the great "I AM."

I encourage you today to start seeing God as the the God of the Now, and expecting Him to become an active part of your daily life! There is no better time than Now!
