God has a highly organized system to meet the needs of
every facet of your life. The world’s system of meeting our
needs works exactly opposite from God’s system. God’s system is
totally adequate. The world’s idea of anything is very limited at
best and stands a 99.9 percent chance of being totally wrong.
As believers, we must be careful not to limit God in our individual
lives to what the world says is so. The problem with the
world and its system of operations is that there is a spiritual
mad dog loose in it and his name is Satan.
The world has a system of healing that is a miserable
failure! We thank God for what good has been done with it, but
we are forced to admit it falls far short of being adequate to
meet the needs of the sick around us. Some men are dedicated
to it as if it were a god. The world’s system of healing makes a
god of the hospital and a god of medicine. Actually, for the
most part, it leaves God out entirely, and without God, it will
not work! There is no way to get healing except through the
power of God, either directly by His power or by the power He
built into the human body. No man on earth can heal apart
There are two choices before you—the world’s system of
healing or God’s system of healing. God’s system and its laws
are contradictory to the world’s system. The world cannot
understand God’s system of caring for the human body. The
Bible says the things of God are foolishness to the world (see
1 Corinthians 2:14). God made the human body. He definitely
should be able to repair it. Ford Motor Company has that much
sense! If they can build the whole car, surely they can build
parts for it.
We haven’t known much about the law of the Spirit of life in
Christ Jesus and a lack of understanding has caused problems in
making this law function for our benefit. The Apostle Paul wrote,
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the
renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2). In order to be successful
at God’s business, we must understand how His system works.
Don’t expect God’s best to come from the world’s system. He will
work around and through it in order to reach you, but it is
always far below His best.
The absolute priority in studying prosperity is that you
should never think of it from a carnal viewpoint, from the
world’s attitude. You must train yourself to think in line with
God’s Word. If you’re not careful, when you think of the laws of
prosperity, all you will see is money—only a very small part of
prosperity. True prosperity is God manifesting Himself to us in His
Word. If He is manifesting Himself through His Word, He is
always within easy contact because you can handle the Word.
The only way you can have God with you on a continual daily
basis is through His Word. We should not judge by our feelings
or by our emotions, but by what God has said in His Word.
