KEY SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 2:8 KJV “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God”:
Salvation is an all-inclusive word. It literally means to be delivered from harm, ruin, loss or preservation. The general biblical definition is that, it is deliverance from sin and its consequences. Some of these consequences of sin include, diseases, poverty, insecurity, demonic harassments, lack of peace of mind and many more. From our key scripture, we may be benefactors of all these by grace. Faith is the only means that grace delivers salvation to us. It is never by works. Nothing you do by human effort can release any blessing of God to you. Indeed, without faith, it is impossible to please God. Heb 11:6
The scriptures show us how to access the grace of God that brings salvation through faith. Rom 10:10 KJV “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”. This verse shows us how to express our faith to possess salvation which comes by grace. It teaches that, you believe what God has said in His Word in your heart, and confess it with your mouth. This is the Bible’s simple way to receive every blessing of salvation by grace. It implies if you are sick in your body, you apply the same principle to receive the salvation of healing. If you desire for divine preservation, you apply the same principle. The same goes for deliverance from sin.
For deliverance from sin the scriptures put it this way. Rom 10:9 KJV “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” If it is peace of mind you want, you may declare I believe the chastisement of my peace was upon Him. I have His peace in my heart. If it is for healing in your body, you believe in the scripture that says Himself took my infirmities and bore my sicknesses. You therefore declare that I believe I am healed. After these declarations, you must express your faith by acting on the word of God. If it is deliverance from sin, then stop the sinful actions. If you are lying on a sick bed, then rise up from that bed, and thank God for healing you. Do something in line with what you believed and confessed.
I am saved by grace through faith. I reign in life by my faith in the word of God. My life is preserved from all calamities, since He gives His angels charge over me. No demon torments me, because I am delivered from the dominion of darkness. No sickness hangs on me, for by His stripes I was healed. Thank you father for all these provisions by grace.
