[He has also appropriated and acknowledged us as His by] putting His seal upon us and giving us His [Holy] Spirit in our hearts as the security deposit and guarantee [of the fulfillment of His promise].
2 Corinthians 1:22 (AMP)
The Holy Spirit is God’s security deposit! This means it is actually the Holy Spirit’s job to guarantee that God’s purposes for our lives will come to pass. And so what is required of us is that we learn to live lives of complete dependence on Him where we no longer rely on our own efforts and performance, but we trust the unfailing working of the Spirit of grace in us.
And Peter said unto him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole: arise, and make thy bed. And he arose immediately.
Acts 9:34 (KJV)
A key to receiving healing is this truth: Jesus is the one who makes us whole! This means we must know that sickness is not of God, but that God is the Healer. When we stand on this with confidence and with expectancy, we open ourselves to seeing supernatural healing in our lives and in the lives of people we are called to pray for.
