Have you believed His report? (Isaiah 53)

We are not begging God to do something He is reluctant to do because He loved us before we loved Him (1John 4:10)

Throughout the scriptures we see how God has been pursuing men: that is the heart of God the Father. When you see anything good and perfect, it is from Him James 1:17

What is the report of the Lord?

Isaiah 53 …And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?

The arm of the Lord is His power, works, and greatness. The moment we believe His report, the next thing we see is His performance: healing, lifting, breaking of bondages, etc. That report will find fulfillment by the mighty arm of the Lord in whatever area of your life.

Isaiah 53:2 For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as a root out of dry ground…

No matter the difficulty in your life or how hard the place is; you will grow up, shoot forth, and become a testimony in the least expected places because you have believed His testimony and His arm is upon your life.

Do not look at the weather, dryness, and aridity; be it spiritual, physical, financial, etc. it shall grow up like a tender plant because His strength is perfect in your weakness. (2 Corinthians 12:9)

1 Corinthians 1:27 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty;

It takes the weak things of this world to bring to shame the strong and wise.

So, your weakness and the dry ground is a setup for the arm of the Lord, and for men to see that you serve a God of the impossible. (Numbers 23:19)

Luke 1:45 (KJV) And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.

When Mary visited Elizabeth, upon greeting her, she was filled with the Holy Spirit and began to prophesy. (Luke 39-45)

Sister, brother, there is a performance for that which you have believed because the Holy Spirit is already performing.

The Lord has perfected, completed, and done it for you. So, do not permit your heart to worry or fear because you are walking in what is done and only awaiting its manifestation. (Isaiah 46:10)

1 Kings 18:44-46 Then it came to pass the seventh [time,] that he said, “There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea!” So he said, “Go up, say to Ahab, ‘Prepare [your chariot,] and go down before the rain stops you.'”…

What do you see? It may seem little but it is what is going to develop into a big storm of financial blessing, physical healing, favor, resurrection, increase, restoration, etc.

Luke 17:15,19

15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God,

19 And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”

Whatever you appreciate gains value: that mercy, grace, etc., the value increases and you begin to see a greater impact of what is happening in your life when you are grateful.

Colossians 2:14 having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.

The answer to man’s predicament is in what God has done and that is the cross of Jesus.

It is the death of Jesus that purchased our liberties and there is nothing more the devil can bring against you because any legality he had against you, Christ nailed it on the cross.
