YOUR EVERY BLESSING IS FOUND IN THE PERSON OF JESUS – Joseph Prince

Great post on Joseph Prince Ministry site! I believe that there is also an audio and video sermon of this.

Here are my notes and takeaways:

  • Whatever situation we are in, all we need is the Lord. It is not dependent on anything other than the Lord Jesus. Jesus fulfills our needs.
    • Jesus needs to become the focal point of our life.
    • Don’t focus on the gifts/things and what we want but focus on Jesus and being in His presence.
    • David did this (Psalms). David was concerned that he could remain in the presence of the Lord (Psalm 51:11).
    • The Lord however in the New Covenant will never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5), so we do not have to have this concern like David.
    • Don’t focus on the issue or what we want or need, focus on the fact that Jesus is bigger than the problem or need. Like David did when he faced Goliath.
    • When the Lord is with you, you will be a success (Genesis 39:2). It doesn’t matter what our standing is in life. Consider what Joesph’s standing was when the Lord said he was a success (Genesis 39:1). He was a slave!
      • Even Potiphar recognized that the Lord was with him (Genesis 39:3).
    • While Martha focused on the past and the future when she spoke to the Lord about Lazarus being dead, Jesus focused on the present (John 11:25).
      • The present help of the Lord, the focus on the Lord led to Lazarus being brought back to life.
    • Reminds me of when the Children of Israel were on the edge of the Promised Land.
      • 2 of the spies focused on God (Joshua and Caleb) and His ability to give them the Land
      • 10 spies focused on the giants and other aspects of the Land that seemed like great obstacles to them (Numbers 13:27-33)
    • Cultivate the Lords presence as you would a friend or spouse (Colossians 3:6)
      • In the presence of the Lord there is rest! (Exodus 33:14, Matthew 11:28)
      • What we have in Jesus is unshakable and unchanging.
  • Jesus is wisdom (1 Corinthians 1:30) (Proverbs 3:16 – wisdom has two hands. right hand length of days, Left hand riches and honor)
  • Jesus is righteousness (1 Corinthians 1:30)
  • Jesus is sanctification (1 Corinthians 1:30)
  • Jehovah-Jireh (Genesis 22:1–14) – the Lord, Jehovah is Jireh. Meaning Jesus is provision, prosperity and supply.
  • Jehovah-Rapha (Exodus 15:26) – Jesus is healing, Jesus is health!
  • Deuteronomy 30:19–20 …therefore choose life, that both you and your descendents may live…and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days…
    • The Lord Jesus is length of days, the Lord Jesus is life

Bible Words on Health

Proverbs 4:20-22 My son, give attention to my words;
incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart
from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; For
they are life to those who find them, and health to all
their flesh.

Exodus 15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently
hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do
that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to
his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will
put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have
brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that
healeth thee.

Deuteronomy 7:15 And the Lord will take away from you all
sickness, and will afflict you with none of the terrible
diseases of Egypt which you have known, but will lay them
on all those who hate you.

delivered them from their destructions.

and shew him my salvation.

and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord.

Galatians 3:13,14 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of
the law (sickness, poverty, spiritual death), being made a
curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth
on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles
through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the
Spirit through faith.

1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body
on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto
righteousness: by whose stripes (wounds) ye were healed.
