Many people are suffering from broken marriages, financial difficulties, and from incurable sicknesses and diseases. They desire a miraculous touch from God and do not understand why it is not happening. They have not been taught that they possess a title deed called “faith” that gives them covenant rights with the Father to make their hopes a reality.
Recently, after ministering the Word of God at a faith and healing conference I went to minister healing to the sick. I was presented to a woman who had been bound to a wheelchair for many years. She was bitter and angry with everyone, but mostly at God. Her marriage was in ruins. Her dream to be a mother was stolen from her. Her financial situation looked impossible. And she lost her desire to live.
As I went to lay my hand on her to pray she screamed out with all her might, “When God?” I knelt down and looked her in the eye and said, “God is not withholding your miracle from you. This tragedy in your life is not of God, but of satan. Right now, we are going to take our authority over satan and all of his wicked works and release God’s healing power into your body. Then, we are going to put our faith in action and you will walk again.”
How could I be so sure that God was going to heal this woman? Because I know God, and
His Word says in 1John 3:8b about Jesus, “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.”, and Hebrews 13:20 speaks of the everlasting covenant we have with the Father, “Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,”
This everlasting covenant we have with our heavenly Father is our title deed that states in 1John 5:14-15, “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hears us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.”
A title deed is a legal document that has been signed, sealed and delivered that lawfully transfers property to a new owner and verifies that person’s legal right to possess it. According to Hebrews 11:1 faith is our title deed, and we are the rightful owners of those things we are hoping for.
“NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, [a]the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].” Amplified Bible
What is it that we are hoping for? Are we hoping for physical healing? Our title deed states in Jeremiah 30:17a, “For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD;” Are we hoping for a restored marriage? It is written in Matthew 19:26, “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.” Are we hoping for a better job that can support the needs of our family? Philippians 4:19 promises us, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
The woman who was bound to a wheelchair, who’s marriage was in ruins, and her dream to have children was lost, needed a title deed called “faith” in order to make her hopes a reality.
She received this free title deed and dared to believe and now walks, her marriage is restored, she is expecting a child, and the financial situation is better than it was before.
We too, need a title deed that gives us the legal right to possess these hopes, and faith in God’s goodness and grace to honor His Word is our title deed.
