"According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust" (2 Peter 1:3-4 KJV)
Some Christians are forever asking God for one thing or the other in prayer. It's either they're sick, asking for healing, or they want a financial blessing. But if they'd study the Word of God, and truly receive it into their hearts, their lives will be totally different.
God chose you to be the helper, a blessing to other people. Never did He intend for you to be "needing" or asking anything of Him. He already gave you all things. We read it in our opening scripture. It's wonderful to have a miracle of financial supply, but how about being in superabundance, such that you're not conscious of need or supply?
That's exactly our status and estate in Christ! We're heirs of God and joint-heris with Christ (Romans 8:17). 1 Corinthians 3:21 says, "...all things are yours." Read 2 Corinthians 9:8 (AMPC) and see God's desire for you. It says, "...God is able to make all grace (every favour and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation]."
The moment you say "Yes" to the scriptures we just read, you'd have a new mindset, and live the higher life in Christ. There's a life beyond healing; it's called divine health. That's the life we have in Christ; you were born with it.
Understand who you are as a new creature; you're too blessed to be under! The world truly belongs to you! Refuse the beggarly life. Why should you be asking God to give you out of the world He's already blessed you with?
You have the advantage! Rather than seeking a blessing, come to the awareness and understanding that you're the seed of Abraham, and you were blessed to bless the world: "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in the heavenly places in Christ" (Ephesians 1:3 KJV). Glory to His Name forever!
"I'm blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places, in Christ Jesus. All things are mine, and I bless my world with the unsearchable riches of Christ and His Gospel that I bear, in Jesus' Name. Amen."
"Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:" (Ephesians 1:2-3 KJV).
"That the communication of thy faith made become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus." (Philemon 1:6 KJV).
