When God ushered in the new covenant of grace, He sent His beloved Son Jesus and not a new set of commandments. So grace is a person, not a doctrine. And every blessing that we would ever need is inseparable from the person of Jesus!
Christianity is not a formula. God did not look down on us, see us in our sins and throw us an instruction manual. No. God so loved the world that He gave us a person—His Son, Jesus Christ. The Lord being with you is all that you need in this life, because the Lord Himself is the One who blesses you with righteousness, holiness, success, victory, favor, provision, healing, wisdom and much more!
Jesus Is The I AM
1 Corinthians 1:30
But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption—
Now, that is wonderful! Notice that God does not dispense wisdom apart from Jesus. He is our wisdom! We don’t have a sanctification or holiness that is manufactured or flawed. Jesus is our holiness! His person is our redemption!
Health, healing, provision and supply are not just things or gifts that God gives you. God gives you Jesus. He is whatever you need.
On Mount Moriah where God provided Abraham with a ram for sacrifice in place of Isaac, we see the first mention of the compound names of God—Jehovah-Jireh. (Genesis 22:1–14) “Jireh” means “to see and to provide”, but what the Hebrew means literally is that the Lord, Jehovah, is Jireh! Just as you cannot separate forgiveness from the forgiver, you do not have prosperity apart from Jehovah. He is your provision, prosperity and supply!
In Exodus 15:26, we find mention of the name Jehovah-Rapha at the place where God healed the bitter waters of Marah, so that the children of Israel could drink. In English, that name is often translated as “the Lord who heals you”, but in the Hebrew, it literally means “I am healing, I am health”! God is not saying, “I will give you healing,” or “I will provide you with health.” He is saying, “I am your health! I am your healing!”
First Samuel 15:29 says, “And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor relent…” The word “strength” here, natsach in Hebrew, means “victory that abides”—perpetual victory. Notice that victory is a person—God Himself. He is the strength, success and victory of His people!
Whatever your station in life, whatever career you are in, the Lord being with you is all that you need because the blessing is not in your company or situation.
Your well-being is not dependent on things that are subject to change.
It’s all dependent on the unchanging person of the Lord Jesus, who is the same yesterday, today and forever!
