There is tremendous power in praying and fasting with other true followers of Christ. And I tell you, I know it is the Holy Spirit’s power, just a taste of it really, but God doles out a deeper strength to united fasting, prayerful Christians. Revival starts this way, miracles happen this way, governments are moved and guided this way, churches are purified this way. I am so honored by God and give Him glory for help and unity in prayer and fasting today. Praise God Almighty!!😄❤❤❤
Today, God healed yet another aspect of me. God did not choose to heal all of me all at once. Frankly, in hindsight, I was not ready for that and my pride was not low enough for it either. My faith was high but will was low. I was healed in sections as I was able to maintain it. And God healed a good deal of the physical remnants of my illness tonight at church. Elders laid hands on me and prayed and I knew I was healed and felt the change inside me. And I could not have had that happen without everything that came before it.
The lesson is this, friend. God is the Great Physician and coordinates every inch of your life for the purpose of accomplishing His will for you and those close to you. Do not miss it. Sometimes His healing is all at once and sometimes, as with me, it was in pieces I was ready for and could handle. I fancied myself tough and everyone who knows me would agree and I still know I am made for toughness. However, I am a twig’s plaything without God. I have no strength but what He graces me with. I have no ability to know what I can handle yet or not or when, I am just not that smart, even with all the initials after my name, just is impossible for anyone to know those things but God. Praise God!❤❤❤
Thank you to my friends and brothers and sisters in Christ, the beautiful prayer warriors who prayed for me and my son during this sinus infection. He is 100% better and back to normal and I am healing up now also. My voice is also not affected for our gig tomorrow, praise God. I thank you for faith-filled praying and praise Almighty God, my loving Healer! 😄 ❤
A song I wrote to Jesus a while back:
“You, oh Lord, are worth all praise
Whether or not we praise You.
You’re the great and mighty God
Whether or not we sing
For You created life
And You created me.
So I will worship and bow down,
For You are holy and worthy of everything.
So I sing,
Oh my King.”❤
Really been thinking about murder lately. Heard a message today on Moody radio while driving to work and that pressed the issue.
Yes, of the 10 commandments, murder is one of those commandments we can usually breathe easy and feel confident and good that we kept it. But did we?
Jesus said that if you hate someone in your heart, you have already committed the crime. And it goes back to the fact 100% truth that God is in the business of heart, mind and motives. (This is why porn is so bad, by the way, already committed adultery when you engage in it, along with the idolatry and further marriage-breaking evil of it, but I digress.)
So, murder is really being extremely angry out of greed, jealousy, selfishness, pride, whatever. You are at that point saying that you are more important than who you are angry at, devaluing them and thus shaking a fist at God and His loving, purposeful design of another human being.
So I quite frankly had to ask for God’s forgiveness for murdering several people in my lifetime. And I would suggest searching your heart for such thoughts and repent of that line of thinking.
That all being said, the opposite of devaluing other people is praise and worship of God and encouraging other people. Telling God how great of a job He did creating people, His ultimate design; choosing to devote yourself to Him in appreciation; and encouraging other people to live up to their designed, beautiful potential from God are all ways to please God and live out His design. This is the opposite of putting one’s self above all of that in your mind.❤
Instead of starting off the day with self-affirmations, start them with praise affirmations. For instance:
1. Lord God, there is no strength in me without you.
2. There is no hope without b You.
3. There is no love without You, Almighty God.
4. There is no perfect except You.
5. God, you are the only One fully dependable, faithful and trustworthy. Thank You for that.
6. God, You are perfect and holy, thr only One who is.
7. I give you today for You know best every time and I love you!❤
God yet again answered my prayers and thank you to those who prayed with me. All went well and with joy and peace with babysitting our grandbaby. I had asked for prayer because we had seen him only twice in his life and never for long, so we knew it would be quite a shock to him and adjustment for us. He is a very busy little man but we had happy moments and even an ever so brief nap. All is well and God remains constantly and perfectly good!❤❤❤
