When we fail, we fail by Pastor Melissa Scott

We have to face up to the fact that when we fail, we fail. “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper” (Proverbs 28:13); but having done it, don’t let the devil beat you to death! Abram didn’t have to pause very  long back in that place where he had started and where faith had originally brought him to this land.

The Lord said, “Lift up now thine eyes”: not tomorrow, now! Put it behind you, all failure once for all; put it behind you, if that’s where you’re at! Do you know what Philippians 1:6 says? “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you,” what does it say? “will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” That’s my promise! Just as literally as God spoke to Abram, that’s my promise and your promise. “Lift up now thine eyes!”

Do you need healing? Is there anybody sick here? Have you been prayed for lots of times? Well, let the Word penetrate today. God’s promise says, “Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them anoint him with oil and pray over him: And the prayer of faith….” What does the Word say? “Shall save the sick.” (James 5:14-15)

God says in His Word, “I am the LORD that healeth thee.” (Exodus 15:26) How many need healing? “Lift up now thine eyes, from the place where thou art.” As literally as when Abram got up and began to walk in that land possessed by heathen, it became his, in God, established that day. As you arise and walk today and claim the promise as the Word goes forth, God will back His Word. If we walk in it, He will back us.
