Apostle Grace Lubega
Ecclesiastes 7:8(KJV); Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
I have often heard some Christians celebrate half-baked victories.
For example, they testify of how God delivered them from an ailment and that is all they have to rejoice over. They jubilate over the fact that God paid their debts and that was the end of His intervention.
My question is, “Even though the Lord healed you of that disease, are you really walking in divine health?”
Ask yourself, “Now that my debt was paid, am I living by the hand of divine providence?”
God did not heal you to abandon you as a sitting duck, open to the next vicious attack of the enemy on your body. He did not settle your debts only for you to continue depending on another man for financial survival.
Healing is a good thing. Settled debts are a wonderful testimony. But that is just half of it. As the God of completion, He wants to do more than that.
THE LORD BROUGHT YOU OUT OF A BAD THING, TO TAKE YOU INTO A GOOD THING.
He is the God that takes us out of sorrow into everlasting joy, out of sickness into divine health; out of debt into divine providence; out of demonic oppression into a life of constant victory; out of darkness into His marvellous light and out of death into life.
Do not settle for the half. Receive the fullness and completeness of His promises. Hallelujah!

GOLDEN NUGGET: The Lord brought you out of a bad thing to take you into a good thing. He is the God that takes us out of sorrow into everlasting joy, out of sickness into divine health; out of debt into divine providence; out of demonic oppression into a life of constant victory; out of darkness into His marvellous light and out of death into life.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this word. I delight in this truth and in the fact that I am complete in You. I walk in the fullness of Your promises and in the testimony of one who has received all things that pertain to life and godliness. I come short in no good thing because completion is my portion. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
