Romans 1:16, 17 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”
I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ! Why? It is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes. Please notice that in order to receive God's salvation you must believe! Faith is the vehicle that brings God's salvation into your life.
This is such a power-packed couple of verses! Let's look at a few of the Greek words in this scripture to get a good understanding of what the Word is saying:
Ashamed – Epaischunomai – the feeling of shame arising from something that has been done.
Gospel – Euangelion – “good news” of salvation; not only the promise of salvation, but it's fulfillment by the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ.
Power – Dunamis – energy, power, might, great force, great ability, strength. Dynamic; dynamite.
Salvation – Soteria – deliverance, preservation, soundness, prosperity, happiness, rescue, general well-being. The word is used both in a material, temporal sense and in a spiritual, eternal sense.
Believes – Pisteuo – to trust in, have faith in, be fully convinced of, acknowledge, rely on. It expresses reliance upon and a personal trust that produces obedience. It includes submission and a positive confession of the Lordship of Jesus.
Righteousness – Dikaiosune – the character or quality of being right or just; right actions. It is used to tell of that gracious gift of God to men whereby all who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ are brought into right relationship with God. It is unattainable by obedience to any law, or by any merit of man's own, or any other condition than that of faith in Christ.
Okay, so now let's think about what Paul is really saying in these two verses. He is not feeling any shame towards the good news of Christ, for it is the might, strength and great force of God resulting in deliverance, preservation, soundness, prosperity, happiness, rescue and general well-being of everyone who places their trust in Him and is fully convinced that He will do what He has promised. It results in acting out that trust and speaking positively of the Lordship of Jesus Christ in their life. The picture that we see here is of a person understanding that salvation is all-inclusive of whatever he needs for the well-being of his person; spirit, soul and body. It is placing trust in Christ Jesus as Lord knowing that He has purchased the salvation that you may need and you are willing to obey Him whatever the cost in order to receive what He died to give you.
Jesus, when He began His ministry, gave it's description in Luke 4:18,19:
“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”
He preached the gospel, the good news, then He demonstrated by healing those who were oppressed of the devil with sickness and disease and demonic possession.
The good news of salvation to the person who needs to be spiritually re-born would be forgiveness of sin. It means that in order for the person to receive that salvation he must place His trust in Jesus, confess Him as Lord and receive His forgiveness.
Romans 10:9, 10: that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
The good news of salvation for someone who is sick would be that God heals and Jesus purchased that healing for him through the stripes that He took on His back in the crucifixion.
Matthew 8:16, 17: When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: “He Himself took our infirmities And bore our sicknesses.”
The good news for salvation for someone in poverty and lack would be that Jesus became poor that he might become rich.
2 Corinthians 8:9: For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.
Philippians 4:19 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
There is a promise in God's Word for every need that we have. It has been purchased for us through the covenant that Jesus sealed with His very own blood. It's a matter of getting into God's Word, finding what applies to your life and believing it in your heart, confessing it with your mouth and acting on the promise to receive it. Sometimes we must “war” to receive it. If a sick person stands on God's word for healing he will have to fight in faith to stay firm until the manifestation of the healing appears. It is a real battle against fear, symptoms of illness, pain, others who may not support you in believing and a negative doctor's report. But Paul told Timothy in 1 Timothy 6:12 that he should “fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life”. A good fight is one that you win and it is a fight of faith to “lay hold” on eternal life. It is a faith fight that gives us the victory!
1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
2 Corinthians 5:7 For we walk by faith, not by sight.
Father, I thank You for providing for whatever we have need of in our lives. I thank You that the blood of Jesus purchased our redemption, full and free, and provides salvation for the total man; spirit, soul and body. Thank You, Lord Jesus, for dying for us, for shedding Your blood that we might experience life. I pray for my friends this morning, Father, that You would show them the scriptures that apply to their needs, Father, that they might trust You to bring the provision that they have need of. Thank You, Lord, for meeting their every need. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Mark 14:3-9 And being in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, as He sat at the table, a woman came having an alabaster flask of very costly oil of spikenard. Then she broke the flask and poured it on His head. But there were some who were indignant among themselves, and said, “Why was this fragrant oil wasted? “For it might have been sold for more than three hundred denarii and given to the poor.” And they criticized her sharply. But Jesus said, “Let her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a good work for Me. “For you have the poor with you always, and whenever you wish you may do them good; but Me you do not have always. “She has done what she could. She has come beforehand to anoint My body for burial. “Assuredly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her.”
According to John 12:3 the woman in this passage of Scripture that anointed Jesus with the costly oil of spikenard was Mary, the sister of Martha and Lazarus. After she had broken the flask of oil over His head, she knelt down and wiped His feet with her hair. She worshiped Him with all that she had; her savings and her very being. It is noted in John 12:3 that this was a pound of the fragrant oil that she broke over Jesus' head. It was valued at a year's wages. Mary was described in Luke 10:39 as one who sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. Jesus said she had chosen that good part which would not be taken away from her. Mary was a worshiper! She loved Him and worshiped Him without caring what others thought of her. But notice that even though she was a worshiper there were those in her midst that did not share her worship of Jesus. In fact, her worship brought out their indignation! They sharply criticized her for worshiping Jesus with that valuable a gift. And yet Jesus upheld her for what she did! He chastened them for being critical of her. In fact, He went on to say that wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what she had done would be told as a memorial to her! God desires our worship! When the praises go up, the glory comes down!
How do you worship the Lord?
I love to sing praise and worship songs as I worship Him. I have found that praise and worship music helps me to quiet myself before the Lord as I listen for His voice. It draws me into His presence. There was a time when my life was in such a turmoil that I would sit in the dark in my rocking chair and listen to worship music just to calm my soul. I needed the music to still my heart in the midst of the storm.
It is recorded in 1 Samuel 16:23 that when a distressing spirit would come upon Saul he would call for David to come and play his harp and the distressing spirit would leave as David worshiped the Lord. There is something about our worship that draws us to the Lord and away from the evil that tries to distress us.
Psalm 22:3 But You are holy, Enthroned in the praises of Israel.
God is enthroned in the praises of His people. When the praises of believers go up to God it builds a throne for Him to sit upon! How precious are our praises to Him! It brings His presence into our midst. He inhabits, or takes up residence, in the praises of His people!
Last weekend I was honored to help with some revival services in North Carolina. As we worshiped the Lord there was a point in time when it seemed as if the air became charged with the anointing of the Holy Spirit. The atmosphere was heavy with the presence of the Lord. You could sense Him right there in our midst. He came and inhabited our praises! I listened as people's hearts were broken before Him as they worshiped Him.
Jesus said in John 4:23, 24: “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
The word for “truth” here is the Greek word aletheia, which according to Strong's Concordance #225, means veracity, reality, sincerity, accuracy, integrity, truthfulness, dependability, and propriety. It is the opposite of fictitious, feigned or false.
To worship in spirit and in truth is to abandon yourself to God without pretense, worshiping Him without worrying about what others think of you or how you are perceived by those around you. Isn't that what Mary did when she broke that costly flask of oil over Jesus' head? Don't you think she somehow knew that she would be criticized for her worship of Him in that manner? And yet, she worshiped with her whole heart and expressed it through her finances. She gave all to Jesus! We sing that old song, “All to Jesus, I surrender; all to Him I freely give.” And yet, do we really give Him our all?
Yesterday a dear sister in Christ brought back to my remembrance an old worship song that we used to sing back in the early 1990's.
“Welcome into this place, welcome into this broken vessel. You desire to abide in the praises of Your people. So we lift our hands, and we lift our hearts, as we offer up this praise unto Your name.”
It brought back so many memories of my worship of Him at that time. I love to simply throw my head back and raise my hands in total abandonment as I worship Him.
He is worthy of our worship!
Lord, I worship You today! You are so worthy, Lord; and I lift my hands and my heart up to You as I offer up this praise unto Your name! Thank You, for abiding in my praises, Lord! Thank You for Your presence that drives out the darkness and distress! Thank You for receiving my worship today, Father! I know that You will never turn me away. You are always ready to receive me when I come before You in adoration and worship. You are great and greatly to be praised! All glory be unto You, Lord Jesus! Worthy is the Lamb Who was sacrificed before the foundation of the world for the sin of mankind! You are glorious and worthy to be adored! I worship You, Lord, and welcome You into my life today! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

I love the Word of God! When I look into God's Word I see His character and nature, who He is and wants to be to His people. I have heard people say that they don't understand the Old Testament and they don't think it applies to us today, since we have the New Testament. But I love the stories in the Old Testament. They give us a greater understanding of how God moves on behalf of His children.
As we look at the names of God described in the Old Testament we gain a better understanding of who He was, and He continues to be that to us. God revealed Himself to His people as the provision for their need when they first needed it. It is known as the “principle of first mention”. For example in Exodus 15:26 He revealed Himself to His people as Jehovah Rapha, the Lord who heals, or the Lord your Healer. When the name was established and He was revealed as that provision for their need it meant that He would always be that provision, not just then but throughout the ages. He is Jehovah Rapha, the Lord our Healer forevermore!
We find in the New Testament the name of Immanuel, which means God with us! It was used to describe Jesus because He is God in the flesh, and would come to dwell with us! Isaiah first prophesied of Jesus as Immanuel in Isaiah 7:14:
“Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.” Jesus was the Messianic fulfillment of this prophesy.
Matthew 1:23 “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”
John 1:1-5 IN the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
Jesus, the Living Word was with God before the beginning of time. Everything that is was made through Him and without Him nothing was made. In Him, in Christ Jesus, is life! And that life lights the way for men so they no longer have to grope around in darkness! Praise the Lord! He is Immanuel; God with us!
John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
The word “dwelt” there literally means “tabernacled”. In the Old Testament while the Israelites were in the wilderness they set up the Tabernacle so that Moses could meet with God in that temporary tent. God's presence would fill the Tabernacle when Moses went to meet with Him. God manifested His glory there and the people would see the glory cloud as it covered the Tabernacle and know that God was meeting there with them. When Jesus came to dwell among us the glory of God walked with us here on this earth. He revealed the Father to us through His fleshly being and as He went about teaching, preaching and healing. He was living out what He heard His Father say and saw His Father doing. (John 5:19; 30)
John 14:18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
Jesus told His disciples in John 14:9 “....He who has seen Me has seen the Father;....”.
When we invite Jesus into our hearts to be our own personal Lord and Savior, He comes to live within us through His Spirit.
John 14:16-18 “And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever--”the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. “I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.”
There is no way a person could step inside another person so when Jesus went back to Heaven the Father sent the Holy Spirit to indwell believers so that He could be with us always! God had a plan for man and Jesus died to redeem us from the bondage of sin, and to usher us into the family of God so we could experience the fullness of all that God had planned for us. If you have never received Jesus as your Savior and Lord and would like to, please pray this prayer and He will come into your life, save you and place you in the family of God.
Father, I come before you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge that I am a sinner by birth and by choice. I have hurt You, I have hurt myself and I have hurt others. I know that I cannot save myself, but You can. I ask You to forgive me for my sin and save me. Father, I believe that Jesus died for me, that You raised Him from the dead and He lives today. I confess Jesus as my Lord and Savior and I thank You for saving me. I receive You, Lord Jesus, into my heart to be my Savior and Lord. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen
We often think that once we have been “born again” or “saved” by having our sins forgiven that there is no further experience that we can have with the Lord. But that is not true; it is just a way for the enemy to try to keep us from experiencing all that God has for us.
John 16:7 “Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.
Jesus said when He ascended unto Heaven that His disciples should wait for the promise of the Father, or the Holy Spirit, to be given. They were to wait in Jerusalem.
Acts 1:4 And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me;”
The Day of Pentecost is when the Holy Spirit initially came to reside within man. And that is recorded in Acts 2:1-4. But as we move on into the book of Acts we see that people received the baptism of the Holy Spirit after He was initially given, thus teaching us that the Holy Spirit is still being poured out on all flesh as we desire to receive Him. In fact, in Acts 2:16-21 it is described as a “last days” outpouring.
Acts 2:17-18 'And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy.'
Jesus ascended back to Heaven and the the Holy Spirit came to take His place in the lives of believers. He is now the person of the God-head that is in the world convicting people of their need for Jesus as Savior, baptizing them for ministry, and is the “gift” of God that is for all believers.
Luke 11:13 “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”
Acts 2:38, 39 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. “For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”
The Holy Spirit is the indwelling Spirit of Jesus Christ! He walks and talks with us, gives us direction for life, leads us into the truth about Jesus and the life that He died to give us. He is a person, not an “it”, and He wants you to know Him and fellowship with Him.
If you have received Jesus as your Lord and Savior then you are a candidate for receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit. If you would like to receive Him, just pray and ask the Father to baptize you in His precious Spirit and then receive by faith the infilling of His Spirit. He will give you a heavenly prayer language that you can use to fellowship with Him spirit to Spirit. You will also have a new strength and power within that will enable you to fight the good fight of faith, standing firm and strong in Him. The Holy Spirit is my best friend! He is real and longs to make Himself known to you.
Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Father, I thank You for the presence of the Holy Spirit in my life. I couldn't live without You, precious Holy Spirit, and I thank You for being real to me. Father, I pray for my friends this morning who may have received Jesus as Savior and Lord and have the Holy Spirit within them but would like a greater reality of His presence. I ask You to baptize them with the Holy Spirit and fill them to overflowing with His presence. Father, I pray that as they are baptized in the Holy Spirit that you will give them their heavenly prayer language just as you did on the Day of Pentecost so that they can fellowship with you spirit to Spirit. Thank You, Father, for hearing and answering my prayer! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Luke 5:16 So He Himself often withdrew into the wilderness and prayed.
Jesus lived His life through prayer. He often withdrew to spend time with the Father in prayer. It is as He spent time in prayer that He was able to then go out and minister the healing power of God to those who needed it.
We see just a few verses down from Luke 5:16 where it told about Him often removing Himself from the masses to be alone with the Father that the power of God to heal was present as He taught. We looked at that scripture yesterday. Many times we see in scripture where He went out to pray and then when He came back into the presence of the people the power of God was present and went out from Him to provide for their needs. It was as He was spiritually re-fueled through prayer that He was able to minister to the needs of the people.
Luke 6:12-16 Now it came to pass in those days that He went out to the mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. And when it was day, He called His disciples to Himself; and from them He chose twelve whom He also named apostles: Simon, whom He also named Peter, and Andrew his brother; James and John; Philip and Bartholomew; Matthew and Thomas; James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called the Zealot; Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot who also became a traitor.
It was as He spent all night in prayer that He received the wisdom from the Father to know which disciples to choose to be His apostles.
Luke 6:17-19 And He came down with them and stood on a level place with a crowd of His disciples and a a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem, and from the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear Him and be healed of their diseases, as well as those who were tormented with unclean spirits. And they were healed. And the whole multitude sought to touch Him, for power went out from Him and healed them all.
This took place after He spent all night in prayer and then chose the 12 apostles. It was then that the people sought to touch Him for they recognized the power of God that was present within Him to heal. He spoke with authority; He made decisions with wisdom and He healed with the virtuous power of God that He received during the time He spent with the Father in prayer.
Do you want wisdom to know how to live your life successfully? Spend time with God in prayer. Do you want to have an impact on people's lives for eternity for the kingdom of God? You receive His power through spending time with Him in prayer!! Do you want people to be able to see God's reflection in you? Look at what prayer did in Jesus' life:
Luke 9:28 Now it came to pass, about eight days after these sayings, that He took Peter, John, and James and went up on the mountain to pray. As He prayed, the appearance of His face was altered, and His robe became white and glistening.
Jesus was transfigured through prayer. When He spent time in prayer it affected His appearance. His countenance changed! When you spend time in prayer your countenance will change also. People will notice a difference in the how you look. There will be a peace about you that will draw others to you. I've had people tell me that there is something different about me and they can see it and want it in their lives. I had a lady that I worked with that told me that one day while we were on our way home from a business meeting. She said she had watched me and listened to what I had to say for a year and she knew there was something different in my life and she wanted it in her life. I was then able to share with her that it was Jesus in my life that had made the difference and I led her in prayer to receive Him as her Lord and Savior. She was changed because I had been changed by my time spent with Jesus in prayer.
As I was walking tonight a little song about prayer came to my mind. You can listen to it at this web address:
Whisper a prayer in the morning; Whisper a prayer at noon. Whisper a prayer in the evening; To keep your heart in tune.
Father, I thank You for the privilege of prayer. We can come to You at any time of the night or day and You will listen to our requests and answer our prayers. Thank You for empowering us for life through the time we spend with You in prayer. May we ever be aware that it is through those times spent with You that we receive wisdom for the decisions of our lives, direction for our journey, strength for the trials and the power to minister life to those around us! Thank You, Father, for making provision for us through our relationship with Jesus and the time that we spend in Your presence. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Luke 5:17 Now it happened on a certain day, as He was teaching, that there were Pharisees and teachers of the law sitting by, who had come out of every town of Galilee, Judea, and Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was present to heal them.
Jesus had a ministry of teaching, preaching and healing! Everywhere He went the power of God was present through His teaching and preaching to heal people. He walked and talked God; He then ministered through the power of the Spirit whatever was needed to make a person whole! The power of the Lord was present to heal them! If they needed forgiveness of sin to heal them spiritually, the power of God was present to do that! If they needed deliverance from demonic oppression, the power of God was with Him, present to deliver. If they needed physical healing, the power of God was there to flow from Him touching them in their infirmity and healing! It was the power of God working through Him that brought the healing virtue into people's lives.
Matthew 4:23-25 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them. Great multitudes followed Him—from Galilee, and from Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and beyond the Jordan.
Acts 10:38 "how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.
When Jesus' disciples were sitting under His ministry they saw first-hand how the power of God worked through Him. He explained it to them in this way:
John 14:7-11 “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.” Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, 'Show us the Father'? “Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. “Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.”
Jesus acknowledge that the Father who was in Him was the One who did the works through Him. He expressed to His disciples that they could know that it was the Father within doing the works by hearing Him speak and watching Him work. He went on to tell them that those who follow after Him that believe in Him would do the same works that He did and greater works.
John 14:12-14 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. “If you ask anything in My name I will do it.”
Mark 16:17,18 “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; “they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
Mark 16:20 And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs.
This past weekend I had the privilege of sitting under the ministry of Reverend Hazel Forrester. She is my Pastor's mother and a mighty woman of God, who at the age of 87, is still out preaching, teaching and healing; following in the footsteps of Jesus! The power of God was present to save, heal, deliver and set free through her this weekend. It was a very special weekend for me! What an honor and privilege not only to sit under her mentor-ship this weekend, but to be included as a minister beside her helping her pray for the sick and oppressed. She has touched so many through her years of ministry. It was awesome to glean from her wisdom and watch how she followed the direction of the Holy Spirit in ministry. I learned so much from spending this time with her and under her anointing received healing and wholeness from the Lord, for the power of the Lord was present to heal! There were three of us ladies who accompanied her to North Carolina for the revival where she was ministering. We were all blessed to be a part of her ministry this weekend!
God is so awesome! Whatever you have need of, His power is present to provide the healing to make you whole! We saw many miracles this weekend and all three of us came back home changed!
Father, I thank You for the privilege of sitting under Sister Forrester's ministry this weekend. I thank You that she lives what she preaches and that her love for people compels her to seek You for Your power to flow through her to heal. Thank You for the privilege of helping her pray for the sick and oppressed this weekend! I am changed because of her taking the time to teach and instruct as she ministered. Father, I pray for those who may be reading this blog who need a healing touch from You today. I pray that they will reach out and receive from You whatever it is that they have need of. You are still present to heal through Your members of the body of Christ. Thank You, Lord, for flowing Your power through your children to save, heal, deliver and set people from from the bondage of the enemy! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
