In today’s day and age, health insurance is as complicated as ever. If you’ve ever been to the doctor and had to have any type of testing done, you’ve probably heard the term “pre-authorization” before. This basically means that your insurance company has to pre-authorize that the test the doctor is ordering is truly needed to help diagnose and treat your medical problem. Sometimes, just getting the insurance company to pre-authorize your test is just as painful as getting the testing!
Thankfully, God has given us pre-authorization for certain things in his Word. Mark 11:24 says, “I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.”
Now we have to make sure that what we are praying for has pre-authorization from Him, and we do that by studying His Word. If what we are praying is in accordance with God’s word, we can be assured that it’s already authorized!
“Then Jesus said to the disciples, ‘Have faith in God. I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, “May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,” and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart.’”
- Mark 11:22-23 NLT
Lord, thank you that we have pre-authorization to pray for things in accordance with your Word. Help us to pray with authority, knowing that we have authorization from the King of Kings! In Jesus’ name, amen.
