If you are a human being, you have needs. You need food, clothing, shelter, and protection; you also need company, friends, and someone to share your life with. Do you believe God can meet all your needs? More to the point, do you have faith that God can meet all your needs? Do you even know how to have faith? The answer to these questions is often determined by your denominational background. How your denomination defines faith does not really matter, what really matters is how your Bible defines faith. The way the Bible defines faith is how Yehovah (God) defines faith, if we dont agree with His definition of faith we will have a hard time believing anything.
Faith in the Bible is always active and never passive (James 2:10-26). If you believe Yeshua (Jesus Christ) is your Lord and Saviour, your faith will show itself in how you live your life when you choose to repent from sin and live righteously in obedience to the law of Moses (1.John 3:4, 3:7, 5:3). If you believe you are one with Yeshua, your faith will show itself when you choose to live as He lived (1.John 2:6) always obeying the law of Moses. (1. John 5:3). So we know saving faith will always show itself in how you choose to live your life, but what about the faith you need on a daily basis to have your needs met?
Phil 4:19 says Yehovah promises to meet all our needs when we are in Christ Jesus (his Hebrew name being Yeshua). 1.John 2:6 says we are in Yeshua when we choose to act on our faith in Him by keeping the law of Moses as He did. If you believe in Jesus (Yeshua) you have to make sure your faith in Him is alive by deciding every day to obey the law of Moses as He did.
We know what it looks like to act on your faith in the cross by making sure you obey the law of Moses. But how does it look like to act on your faith that says Yehovah will meet all your needs when you are one with Yeshua? (Phil 4:19)
It is easy to act on your faith in the cross and become one with Yeshua; you just have to decide to obey the law of Moses. (1.John 2:6, 3:7, 5:3). At first sight, it is not all that easy to act on your faith that says Yehovah has healed you and provided for you when your body, mind, and eyes tell you a different story. This is why the Bible says in 2. Cor 5:7 we have to decide every day to walk by faith and not by sight, and the Bible says in Prov 3:5-6 we must not trust in our own understanding of things but instead choose to trust in Yehovah.
What should you do when your sight and understanding of things disagree with Phil 4:19? You know Phil 4:19 and 1.John 2:6 says you are already healed and provided for because of your obedience to the law of Moses and faith in the cross. Your sight, body, and understanding say that is a lie because you are still sick unable to pay your bills and the repo man stands at the front door asking for the keys to your car.
What do you do in such a situation?
The Bible says when Moses and our forefathers left Egypt, they found themselves trapped on the banks of the Red Sea. Behind them was Pharaos army in hot pursuit trying to capture them and take them back to Egypt as slaves. In front of them was the Red Sea. Their mind, sight understanding told them this was an impossible situation with only one outcome to return to Egypt as slaves. Moses, on the other hand, chose to ignore what his sight, mind, and understanding were telling him (Prov 3:5-6, 2. Cor 5:7). Because he made this decision the Israelites saw a miracle, Yehovah parted the Red Sea for them, and they crossed over to safety on the other side.
Pharao is not threatening to take you back to Egypt as slaves, and the Red Sea is not in front of you. But the repo man, the doctor giving you the death sentence or whatever it might be is just as bad as a Pharao and the Red Sea.
The Bible says if we do what Moses did we will see the Red Sea part on our behalf and Pharaos army will be no more. If you do what Moses did, there will be no more cancer, no more repo man, no more chaos in your life. If you want this you have to do something to get this; you have to decide to walk by faith and not by sight.
You have to choose to act on your faith by telling your mind, emotions and will the truth about your situation. When your mind says you are sick, you have to speak to your mind and tell it you are healed because you are a Jew. When your mind says you can’t pay these bills and the repo man is coming tomorrow, speak to your mind, and tell your mind you are wealthy because you are a Jew. Whatever your situation might be, tell your mind the truth about it by reminding it the promises you have access to because you are a Jew (Deut 28:1-13)
Why do you have to tell your mind you are a Jew?
The Bible says in Rom 2:29 the true Jew is the one who is united with Christ through obedience to the law of Moses. (1. John 2:6). It also says in Deut 28:1-13, Isaiah 56:3 and Exodus 19:5 obedience to the law of Moses makes you a member of the covenant between Yehovah and the Jewish people. If you are a Jew by obedience and faith, the Bible says in Matthew 6:25-34, Phil 4:19 all your needs will be met, and you have no reason to worry about anything because Yehovah will come through for you.
When you are telling your mind it has already happened because you are a Jew, you are speaking faith to your mind and telling it Yehovah has already done this for you and why He has done it. He did not do it on account of something you did; He did it because He made a covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. When you became a Jew by choice, you entered into that covenant and when you tell your mind “because I am a Jew” you are telling your mind this has already happened because Yehovah promised it to Abraham.
Your mind, your sight, your understanding will probably not agree at first and remind you of the bills you can’t pay, the pain in your body and what the doctor said. This is just what happened to Moses; he had to speak to the Israelites reminding them Yehovah had already made way for them. The Israelites reminded Moses how impossible it is to cross a sea of water, and how Pharaos army was gaining on them. Moses had to reinforce in them that because they were Jews in covenant with Yehovah, they could trust Him to already having made way for them. In the end, they listened to Moses, the Red Sea parted, and they were rescued.
When you are telling your mind “I am already healed because I am a Jew, I am already provided for and wealthy because I am a Jew” you are speaking faith to yourself. The more you keep telling yourself what has already happened because you are a Jew, the easier it will become to believe this, and in the end, your mind, sight, and understanding will come into line with what you are saying. When that happens, the Red Sea will open up for you to go across in victory testifying of the faithfulness of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Your circumstances might not change right away, but remember what Yehovah did for Moses at the Red Sea. He positioned Himself between the Israelites and Pharaos army so He could protect them while their faith was building to the level it needed to be for Him to part the Sea. Just as He did for them, He will do for you and protect you, provide for you and give you what you need while you are working on your faith to be built to the level it needs to be for your miracle to happen.
This is the Biblical way to have faith for your needs to be met, by speaking to yourself reminding yourself you are a Jew and because you are a Jew, your needs have already been met. (Phil 4:19, 1. John 2:6, Rom 2:29)
It will take some effort on your part, and at times it will seem ridiculous to do this when everything around you disagrees with what you are saying. But we know the Bible says Yehovah is faithful to His people (Ex 19:5) and if we stay in faith He will come through for us on His promises (Deut 28:1-13). But we have to stay in faith and fight the good fight of faith by speaking faith to ourselves every day, reminding ourselves what we already have because we are Jews. (Phil 4:19, Isaiah 56:3, 1. John 2:6, Rom 2:29)
