Jesus the Author and Finisher of our Faith

by Robert Rajamani

…fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, — Hebrews 12:2

Faith pleases God (Hebrews 11:6). You cannot receive anything from the Kingdom of God without Faith. Faith is the key that unlocks the doors of the Kingdom in the spiritual realm and manifest it in the physical realm in your life.

If faith is so important what would you do when you feel that you lack Faith to receive from God and manifest in your life. Feeding on the Word of God produces Faith, listening to the voice of the Spirit produces faith. Still if you feel that your faith is not sufficient to handle the situation you are in, don’t worry, you can rely on the Faith of Jesus to complete your faith.

Once when Jesus was with His disciples in the boat out in the sea, a severe windstorm arose which appeared life-threatening, when the disciples woke Him up in panic, He asked them “why are you so fearful, How is it that you have no Faith?” Jesus expected them to be not afraid when a life-threatening storm came against them. But when He saw that they did not have that Faith, He used His Faith to calm the storm. (Mark 4:35-41)

Jesus will never leave you helpless in your situation just because of your lack of Faith. He is with you in your situation, it might be a life-threatening sickness, or something else, do not fear, just rely on Him and depend on His Faith to work for you. When you lack Faith He is with you to use His Faith and rescue you from the storm, He is your good Father. He will get you out of the situation in victory. He is in charge. Just Trust Him. He will do it.

In another instance, when the father of the boy who had epileptic came to Jesus’s disciples for healing but they could not heal because of their unbelief. When the disciples lacked faith, Jesus used His Faith and rebuked the demon and healed the child. (Matthew 17: 14-21)

When Peter wanted to walk on the water and he did walk for a while, but then as he was going under because of doubt and fear, Jesus stretched out His hand and helped Him. (Matthew 14:29-33) He is always with you to complete and perfect your Faith. He will give you victory over the situation, He is the perfecter of our Faith. Rely on Him.

So live life with the confidence that no matter what situation you face, you are always an overcomer. Your Faith in Him perfected by His Faith will always lead you in triumph. (2 Corinthians 2:14)

Overcome By The Word of God

by Robert Rajamani

I have written to you, young men, Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, And you have overcome the wicked one. – 1 John 2:14

The Word of God is the creative force which created this world and everything in it. It is the rock solid foundation on which we need to build our life. As Jesus said, he who listens to my Word and obeys it is like a man who built his house on the rock, the storms will come and waters will rise, but the house will not be shaken (Matthew 7:24).

The Word of God has the presence of God, when it comes and abides in your heart it changes everything in your life. The Word abiding in our heart creates God kind of Faith and there is nothing in this physical realm which can prevail over this kind of Faith. This Faith overcomes everything in the world.

The devil will do everything to keep us down, he can throw sickness, poverty and every other form of oppression against us, but we will not be moved because we are founded on the Word of God. According to the above verse, we have already overcome the wicked on. The Word of Christ dwells in us and we are strong and have overcome the evil one.

Jesus said, “If you abide in me and my words abide in you, you will ask what you desire and it shall be done for you.” (John 15:7) We abide in His Word by grabbing hold of His promises in our heart and trust in Him. As you Trust in Him, it forms a wall of protection around you and the devil cannot touch you. As you grow in your Trust in Him by letting His Word abide in you and meditating on it, the wall of protection gets bigger and stronger and the weapons of the enemy cannot penetrate that wall.

King Solomon said, “Keep His Word in the midst of your heart for they are life to those who find them and health to all their flesh. (Proverbs 4:21,22). Meditating on Scriptures about healing and that Jesus bore our sickness on His body and by His stripes we are healed will manifest healing in your physical bodies.

Make the Word of God your high priority. Nothing is more important in life than to know Him and His purpose for your life through His Word. Spend time in His Word every day, do not ignore it. Meditate on the Word throughout the day, let the Spirit of God reveal the wisdom in the Word for your specific situation. He wants you to be successful and overcome every giant in your life. You do that by abiding in His Word.

Build your life on the Word of God and prevail over the devil.

Become One with the Word of God and Speak

by Robert Rajamani

If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you – John 15:7

The Word of God has Spirit and Life. The Word of God is living and active and full of power (Hebrews 4:12). Any situation you face in life, no matter how impossible it might appear, it can be changed and overcome by the Word of God.

The way God operates in this earth among humans is through His Word. He speaks His Word and if any person agrees to that Word and receives it, He then makes that Word to manifest in his life.

He spoke to Abraham and gave him a promise and Abraham received that Word in Faith and the promise manifested in His life. He spoke the Word to Mary, she received it in Faith and it manifested in flesh.

When God gives you a promise concerning your situation, do not position yourself in a neutral place where you stand between the promised Word of God and your situation and wonder why the situation is not changing according to what God has promised. Instead, you need to become one with the promised Word of God. You need to let that Word abide in you and you abide in it. Meditate on it and become one with it and speak that Word out of your mouth. Use that Word as a sword to attack your situation and change it. The Word of God abiding in you and coming out of your mouth is a powerful sword which can change any circumstance.

Speaking out the Word of God with your mouth is as important as letting that Word become one with you, for you to see it manifest in your life. God created this world by speaking His Word. We as His children have creative force in our tongue. Letting the Word unite with your spirit and speaking it out of your mouth has creative power. It’s not your power, but it’s the power of His Word.

Keep confessing the Word of God and the promises that He has given you for any situation you are facing. Let that Word abide in your heart and you abide in it in Faith and let it grow and manifest in the physical realm. As James says, the Word of God which is implanted and rooted in our heart is able to save our souls (James 1:21). Once the Word has become one with you and you abide in the Word, you need to speak that Word out with your mouth and it will manifest in your life.

Receive the Word, Unite with it, Speak it out with your mouth and Create your future.

Jesus – Our High Priest

by Robert Rajamani

Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, …Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. – (Hebrews 4:14,16)

We can come into the presence of God our Father with all boldness and full of Grace. We can do so because God Himself has made a way for us, who were sinners, to come to His presence without any condemnation, guilt and fear of punishment. It was in the heart of the Father to make a way for us to come back to Him. We had disconnected from Him because of the disobedience of one man Adam, but it pleased God to make a way for us to give full access to His heart through Jesus Christ.

Jesus is not only the lamb which was sacrificed for our sins, but He is also the High Priest who took the blood of the lamb, his own blood and has entered the most Holy place of the heavenly tabernacle and offered it to God on behalf of us. Because of this High Priest we have in Christ, we are righteous. We have complete right standing with God, no one can condemn us. Now we can come boldly into the throne room of God. We can talk to Him as a son or daughter talks to the Father.

Anything that we lack is made complete in Christ. If we lack Faith, the Faith of Christ completes it for us (Hebrews 12:2). If we have sin, the High Priest has offered an eternal sacrifice for all our sins and it’s taken care of (Hebrews 9:14). Christ who has entered the heavens and finished the sacrifice of atonement for us and is seated on the right hand of God intercedes for us even now (Hebrews 7:25). If you need anything, just bring the request to the throne room of Grace and Jesus our High Priest will get it from the Father. (Hebrews 4:16)

We are covered from all sides. We lack nothing. So be bold in the assurance that God loves you and done everything to take care of the sin problem. Just know who you are in Christ. You are the son of God. You bear His image and nature. You are the righteousness of God and He will make your righteousness shine forth as light (Psalm 37:6). You can live life in victory. Dispel everything that stands against you.

Be bold in the Righteousness of Christ and live in Victory. He is your High Priest!

Fret Not – Just Rest in the Lord

By Robert Rajamani

Be still and rest in the Lord; wait for Him and patiently lean yourself upon Him; fret not yourself because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked devices to pass – Psalm 37:7

Are you in a situation where you feel like the thing that is against you is just advancing and you don’t seem to find a way out? It might feel like you can do nothing about it. It might be a sickness or diseases which is incurable, or a financial problem which is just too big or some other circumstance which you feel like it is just going to overtake you and crush you under.

We all face such situations. When your soul is anchored in Christ no situation in life can break you. You will always emerge stronger and victorious. But it all depends on how you react to those situations, do you react in worry and anxiety and fret over it. If you do that you connect with fear which is not from God and it will defeat you. As a child of God, He wants you to be still and rest in Him. Rest in the assurance that He has everything under control. Lean on Him and let Him speak to your heart about the situation and how to handle it. Sometimes He will guide you through the situation to victory by revealing certain things in the Scripture, other times He will just say, leave this to me, I will take care of it. You just Rest in Me and Rejoice. Either way He is going to help you to overcome victoriously (Psalm 37:5).

Resting in Him and Leaning on Him in Trust – Make that a lifestyle. Dwell in that Rest, not just visit there occasionally. Do not wait for storm to come and then you seek Him and get close with Him, but walk with Him closely all the time even when everything is going good. Abide in His Word and let His Spirit abide in you all the time.

When the devil throws a sickness or other problems it will not disturb you, because you have confident assurance in Him and you Rest in Him. You know you are more than a conqueror in Him. Jesus said, “In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (Matthew 16:33).

We are world overcomers in Him.
So Relax and Rest in Him and let Him lead you to Victory!

Faith – How to Get It?

Robert Rajamani

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6)

Faith is not supposed to be a struggle. Do you try to have Faith in God? When storms and pressures in life hit you, you go to God and want Him to help you overcome the storm, but then you realize that you need Faith to receive from God and without Faith you cannot please Him. Then you come under pressure to have Faith and feel guilty for not able to have enough Faith, after all, you cannot please God without Faith. Then doubt sets in whether you will receive from God, because you don’t have enough Faith.

Somehow we have been convinced to believe that we have to generate Faith on our own and come to God with it to please Him. But the Truth is that He gives us Faith and He wants us to come to Him with the Faith that He has given us. Faith is not something that we can generate on our own. Faith comes from His Word (Romans 10:17). As we receive His Word and sow it in our heart, the Word has the capacity to generate Faith in our Heart. Faith is not produced in the mind but in the Heart. Faith is purely His thing, we cannot create it, but we can deposit His Word in our heart and let the Spirit of God generate Faith. As we spend time with Him, He speaks and that is His spoken Word for us. When we spend time in the Written Word we receive the Word. It’s this Word (spoken and written word) that we need to sow in our heart. Our responsibility is just to spend time in His Word and in His Presence and receive His Word and sow in our heart and that will generate Faith. When we approach God with that Faith, it pleases Him.

Hebrews 4:12 says the Word of God is living and active and full of power. It’s this Word when sown in our heart produces the God-Kind of Faith which can move mountains. Any mountain of sickness, poverty, defeat etc standing against you can be removed by this Faith.

Faith does not struggle, it is always at Rest. This Faith manifests itself as Peace in your heart. Even in the midst of the storm, this Faith keeps you at Rest and helps you overcome the storm.
So make a decision to sow some seed of the Word of God in your heart. Meditate on it day and night. Spend time with Him, let the Spirit of God reveal His Word to you for your specific situation and then hold on to it, till it generate Faith in your Heart and feel that Peace about that situation and you will see victory.

Walking by Faith is not a struggle, but an adventurous life of Victory in Christ all the time.

Peace – A Powerful Weapon

By Robert Rajamani

You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You – Isaiah 26:3

Peace is not just a mental state of mind. Peace is a powerful spiritual force. It is an empowering force from the Kingdom of God (Romans 14:17). It comes out of the nature and heart of God. God is Perfect Peace. Peace has the ability to dominate and conquer any negative spiritual force like Fear, which originates from the Kingdom of Darkness.

This Peace of the Kingdom dwells in our born again spirit and we need to yield to this Peace to experience it and release it in our circumstances.
When you go through storms in life there are two ways you can react to it. You can either react in the flesh with Fear and Worry caused by unbelief or you can react by anchoring your heart in the Word and Promises of God and keep your mind stayed on Him and Trust and adhere to Him and His Word (Isaiah 26:3). By trusting in God you will release the Force of Peace into your circumstance and subdue the storm and come out victorious. There is no storm in life which cannot be overcome by this enabling Peace of God in your heart.

That is how Jesus handled a storm (Mark 4:35-41). When he was with his disciples in a boat in the sea and a great storm arose. In the midst of the storm Jesus was at Peace and sound asleep. When the disciples woke Him up, he got up, was undisturbed and commanded the Storm: “Peace, be still” and there was a great calm. The storm outside could not disturb the inner Peace in Him and eventually the outer storm had to give in to the force of Peace within and die down. Every time the Kingdom of God clashes with the Kingdom of darkness, the Kingdom of God prevails, just like Light prevails over Darkness. Peace prevails over the storm.

Jesus always functioned from a position of Rest and Peace. This is the same Peace dwelling in us. Jesus said, I give you My Peace. (John 14:27)

Because of the finished work of Christ and what He accomplished on the cross, He has established a New Covenant with us and called us into the Kingdom of God. He is the Prince of Peace ruling over that Kingdom. In Christ we have a Sabbath Rest (Hebrews 4:9). According to Hebrews 4:11 He wants us to labor to enter into His Rest so that we have His inner Peace by Trusting and Relying on Him.

The only labor we have; is to diligently be rooted in His Word. Spend time with Him. Seek Him and go after Him passionately. He will reveal Himself. It is His heart’s cry that we pursue Him and have His Peace rule our life. So that we can overcome every storm that rages against us.

Next time the devil brings a storm in your life, instead of fearing that this storm will bring you down, Approach it from a position of Rest and Peace in Christ and you will bring that storm down and come out victorious.

Now Speak to that Storm: “Peace, Be Still”

Do not Tolerate Sickness

By Robert Rajamani

And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people – Matthew 4:23

Sickness and disease is not from the Lord. The Lord does not teach us by putting sickness on us. That is against His nature, He is a good Father.

Sickness is a part of the fallen world, its part of the curse. It has its source in the devil and the kingdom of darkness. Jesus said the devil came to kill steal and destroy (John 10:10), he uses every means available to fulfill that agenda of killing, stealing and destroying. Sickness and disease is one of his major tools to attack us. His kingdom operates by Fear and Death, unlike the Kingdom of God which operates by Love and Life. He uses fear to keep people bound in slavery. Sickness is a weapon which he uses to keep us in fear. He has been successful in developing our faith in his weapons, we fear diseases or sickness, because we believe in its power to harm us and thus he keeps us bound to him. One of the biggest deception of the devil in this area is that sickness is from God and He uses it to teach and train us. Once you buy into that deception you will not resist sickness as you should.

In the life of Jesus He went preaching the gospel of the kingdom and was healing all kinds of diseases and sickness. (Matthew 4:23) Healing the sick was a major part of His ministry. He even asked His disciples to go preach the kingdom of God and heal the sick. (Luke 9:2, Matthew 10:8) Healing the sick is a big priority in the Kingdom of God. The Father’s heart is to see all His children free from sickness.

Jesus paid a heavy price on the cross to earn our salvation. He has paid the price for the salvation of our soul and also redeemed us from sickness, by His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5, 1 Peter 2:24). He took up our infirmities and bore our diseases (Matthew 8:17). Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us (Gal 3:13).

When God himself is against sickness and stands by us to get us healed, no power of sickness can prevail against us. When God is for us who can be against us (Romans 8:31). Just resist sickness. Do not tolerate it. Tolerating sickness is despising the huge payment Jesus paid on the cross to redeem us from the curse.

Spend time in His Word for they are life unto those that find them and health to all their flesh. (Proverbs 4:22). Allow the Spirit of God to reveal the reality of what Jesus finished on the cross and stand on it. Speak to that mountain to move, As children of the most high we have the authority. Confess that you are healed by His stripes. Hold on to the Word until healing manifests.

Healing is the Children’s Bread in the Kingdom of God. Receive It!

God’s Promise is like a Seed

By Robert Rajamani

The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. – Matthew 13:24

In our walk with the Lord, we do walk through difficult circumstance at times, some mountains seems to take more time than we expect, to move. In times like these when we approach the Lord, He reveals things to us in our spirit through the Holy Spirit and through the Word of God. He also gives us specific promise for the given situation from the Word of God. Those promises will generate Faith in our heart to overcome the situation.

These promises that God gives are like a seed. They are planted in our heart by the Spirit of God. As we cling on to those promises and allow it to take root in our heart and nurture it with Faith and abide in His Word (John 15:7) and be led by the Spirit it will start to grow. The Word of Promise from God has life in it and it grows when nurtured by Faith. It is the Lord who brings the growth (1 Corinthians 3:7).

The way the Kingdom works is like seed growing in a good ground. It might take some time, but the process has started. If you stay firm in your confidence in what the Lord has promised you, the result will eventually come. The fulfillment of any promise that the Lord gives does not depend just on God, it needs our cooperation. You need to cooperate with God to see the fulfillment of the promise. All you need to do; is have Faith in His promise and stand firm  on it knowing that the one who has promised is a good Father and He will fulfill it. (1 Corinthians 16:13)

Just because it did not manifest right away does not mean that God did not speak or did not give you a promise. You need to stand firm on what God promised. As you stand firm on His promise the devil will come and attack your Faith, he will try to make you doubt on the goodness of God. It’s during this process that your Faith get stronger and becomes an ever increasing force which overcomes the problem. Don’t give up. Be patient. Let patience work (James 1:4).

As you wait patiently on the Lord, agreeing and confession to what He has promised for your situation and praising Him and not giving up, you will see the seed of the promise take root and grow and bear fruits. You will soon see the physical manifestation of the promise, and see that mountain move in your life.

So stand firm on what He has promised and you will see your mountain move away.

Wisdom of God

By Robert Rajamani

But to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks (Gentiles), Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God. – 1 Corinthians 1:24

According to Paul, Christ crucified is the Wisdom of God. The redemptive work that God accomplished in Christ and redeemed man from his fallen state and restored him back to the position of His Sonship is the wisdom of God. God in His divine wisdom came up with the plan to redeem mankind in Christ by His death and resurrection.

The fullness of the understanding of the redemption plan of God in Christ is not something that a carnal man can understand. A carnal man operates on a different level, just following his flesh. So it’s a mystery to him. But the ones who are in Christ and have the Spirit of Christ in them, the Holy Spirit reveals the fullness of this Redemptive Plan in Christ.

Christ died on the cross as our substitute, He took our sin, curse, sickness, poverty and every other form of oppression and delivered us from it and finished the work and was resurrected in power on the third day. Today we can live in victory. As we understand this wisdom of God about what He did in Christ for us, we will live a victorious life.

The only way to understand the fullness of this wisdom of God is to be revealed to us in our spirit by the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 2:7) As we spend time with the Holy Spirit, He reveals this plan more and more and helps us to understand all that God has prepared for us in Christ as Paul says: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him, But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit– 1 Corinthians 2:9,10

As a born again believer as you renew your mind with the Word of God, you have the mind of Christ. Having the mind of Christ is what it takes for you to understand this wisdom of God as the Spirit of God reveals it to your spirit. (1 Corinthians 2:16)

Spend time with Him and His Word and let Him reveal His Wisdom in what He did for you in Christ Crucified and live in the victory that Christ has purchased for you on the Cross
