Years ago I was facing a health problem. My pastor visited me at the hospital. He prayed for me, and after he left, I sensed God’s Presence in the room. In my mind, the Lord asked, “Do you want Me to heal you?” There was no doubt in my mind that He could. However, in the next instant the thought came that, “Oh, I can take care of this myself. I’m helping God because then He will have more power for other needs.” So I told the Lord, “No, I can do it myself”.
I still have the problem, and I regret not letting God take care of it there and then. If I had told Him “Yes”, I believe it would have resulted in a much bigger blessing than just a physical healing.
I’m not sure how I got the thought that if God helped me, He would have less power at His disposal. That was a lie. Consider this: God is BIG. He created the heavens and the earth. I thought that by healing me, His power would be diminished??? REALLY???
God has no limits, except those He puts on Himself.
Moral of the story? When God offers you a blessing, take it!
Some Scriptures for you (and me) to consider: Genesis 1, Job 38, 39, 40, Ps.8:3, Isaiah 40:12-29.

God has no limits, but I’ve also limited His power with unbelief. Life situations can transform from mole hills to mountains in a heart beat. 🙏May our Heavenly Father give us the faith and courage to believe—whatever happens. Great post, sister P! Thank you, and God Bless.
Thank you, David, and I second your prayer. God bless you and yours, as well.
