Help me ask, righteously!

Help me!

          Help me ask, righteously

          I awoke to His voice. “You ask with your hands open, and then run to hide under the bed.” I knew that God spoke to me about my issues with receiving healing.

          What do I believe? I pondered.

          I prayed, and He showed me a word picture to clarify my question. I saw a little girl standing outside within a pool of light with her two hands cupped and held out together to receive. She stood like this for a moment and then ran into the house and dove under her bed. Her hideaway looked abnormally spacious; it was a blanket fort, a place to camp out under a bed. She then wrapped herself in a blanket, curled up, and huddled in for what looked like would be a long haul.

          God prompted me with a few questions. “Ask yourself, what do I believe?” “What do you wrap yourself in?”

Lord, help me.


            When I asked Him to reveal to me my current beliefs, many things surfaced. He revealed self-justification of my doubt or lack of faith. I justified my lack of faith because what I saw in front of me was a lack of answered prayers, a lack of healing. I have wrong mindsets of His desire to heal, and the lie that disease, wounds, and tolerating pain in my life is just a part of living.

            But a part of whose life? Not my life on earth as it is in heaven. His word says that’s my old life, my dead life that has to tolerate living in misery. So why am I still tolerating my status quo instead of reaching for the fullness He has to give me? To be honest, I don’t know. I don’t know all the things that are holding me back, but I’m asking God to show me. I’m trying to agree with God for His healing, with my hands open and my heart expectant. I need my shield of faith firmly established around me.

            Does His healing in your life involve getting in unity with other believes so that you might link your shields of faith?

          ♥Unite with encouragers?

          ♥Unite with other warriors?

          ♥Unite with other servants of God? What is His plan for you?

            I’m waiting for clarification and provision for what I need for my journey to accept healing and walk in truth. I’m not there yet but I’m praying for Him to help me ask righteously.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” (2 Cor. 5:17, NIV)

“In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” (Ephesians 6:16-18, NIV)

Prayer for you and me:

Christ, You are more than able to heal the entirety of our bodies, hearts, souls, and minds. We confess our faith in You and ask for you to help our unbelief. Strip us of our old comfortable coverings of self-justification, and denial of our identity and Yours. Unite us with other Christ-followers who can hold their shield of faith in unity with us for this battle. We believe Your Word that Your victory at the cross is more than enough to heal us and our loved ones of every wound seen and unseen. We wait in expectancy of Your move and we wait with our hands open and not closed. Help us to not run and hide. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
