The problem why Christians do not receive their healing or other blessings is not that we have no faith or do not believe that God heals. The main obstacle is we do not know the whole bible truth. So often we spend a lot of precious praying and pleading to God to give what He has given. Our only task is simply to know how to receive and just do it ! I have found this following teaching (excerpts quoted here; please click on the links to read in full and download the audio in the original web site).
You’ve Already Got It! By Andrew Wommack http://www.awmi.net/extra/article/already_got
On March 23, 1968, I had a miraculous encounter with the Lord that changed my life forever. Instantly, I received “revelation knowledge” that I’m still trying to understand and communicate today.
This knowledge didn’t come through the normal channels of study and education; the Spirit of God supernaturally imparted it to me. When I came heart to heart with the Lord, I just knew things about Him intuitively. One of those revelations has become a mainstay for what the Lord has accomplished in my life, and it’s one of the most important and foundational truths of the Gospel.
It’s the knowledge that God has already done His part. When Jesus cried “It is finished” (John 19:30), He meant just that. His work on earth was done. The Atonement was complete. He provided everything we could ever need. We aren’t waiting on Him to give; He is waiting on us to receive.
The book of Ephesians is written from the perspective of everything already being ours in Christ. It starts in Ephesians 1:3 by saying, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ” (emphasis mine).
Any blessing you could ever need or desire from the Lord is not something to strive for but something you already have. God made the provision before you had the need. It is just a simple matter of receiving what He has already done. The benefit of understanding and being assured of this is enormous. It kills legalism and the performance mentality, and that takes a huge load off of you. How could you doubt that God will give you something if He’s already given it to you?…
First Peter 2:24b says, “By whose stripes ye were healed” (emphasis mine). It’s already a done deal. It is actually incorrect to pray for healing. Instead, we should just receive the healing that the Lord has already provided.
There is a difference between fighting to get healed and fighting because we have been healed. That difference is the difference between success and failure. In Ephesians 2:8, Paul said, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves.” We aren’t saved by grace alone or by faith alone; we are saved by a combination of the two.
Actually, faith isn’t true biblical faith unless its used in receiving what God has already provided by grace. Grace is what God has already done for us, independent of any worth or value on our part. If it’s tied to some goodness of ours, then it’s not true grace.
God, by grace, has already provided everything we will ever need. Our faith doesn’t move God. If God hasn’t already moved by His grace, then your faith can’t make Him. Faith simply appropriates what God has already provided by grace. If He’s already provided your needs by His grace, then faith is just your positive response to what He has already done—not something you do to get God to respond to you. It takes a revelation from the Holy Spirit to make these truths become alive on the inside. ..
The truth is that the Lord has already provided everything we will ever need, but His provision is in the spiritual realm. “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24). God moves in the spiritual realm. Whether or not we see manifest in the physical realm what He has done in the spiritual realm is not dependent on His giving but on our receiving…
We have to know that God has already done His part and that any delay in our manifestation is not His fault. That will keep us in faith. Remember that faith is our positive response to what God has already done by grace… The Bible says, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). Knowing the truth, not binding the devil in prayer, is what sets people free. …
But I have gone in depth about this in my teaching entitled You’ve Already Got It! If you aren’t experiencing the abundance that you know the Lord wants you to have, then I can guarantee you that the revelation you need is in this message… It’s the knowledge of this truth that will set you free to receive from God. click this following link to listen to or download the complete MP3 audio teaching: http://www.awmi.net/extra/audio/1033
