He Will Heal Us

Thank you to James Wheeler – Pexels for Photo.

“Come, and let us return to the LORD; for He has torn, but He will heal us;

He has stricken, but He will bind us up.

After two days He will revive us;

On the third day He will raise us up,

That we may live in His sight.

Let us know, let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD.

His going forth is established as the morning;

He will come to us like the rain, Like the latter and former rain to the earth.”

“Also, O Judah, a harvest is appointed for you When I return the captives of My people.”

Hosea 6:1-3, 11

It’s an Oppression

Almost awake, felt a heaviness on my breath.  Heard in my spirit, “it’s an oppression.” I rebuked the oppression in Jesus’ name & felt immediately normal.

Isaiah 61:3, “…To give them…the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness…”

Derek Prince taught that depression or heaviness is an evil spirit.  Nearly 2 years ago, a similar thing happened – I prayed against it.  The following day, I heard a friend’s baby had shortness of breath at the same time as me.

When a sudden illness comes upon you, pray against it for yourself and anyone else who may have it, whether friend or stranger.  This is how God heals through people like Randy Clark, Founder of Global Awakening – https://globalawakening.com/ .

 

Go Out / See People

“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”                                  Hebrews 10:25

Talk to People, they are hungry for human connection. Love them. Let churches create online chats, meetings, prayers.  Gather in homes in small numbers and stay safe, using distancing methods.

Cracked Rib

“God took one of Adam’s ribs & made woman” (Genesis 2:21-22)

“Strength to your bones” Proverb 3:7-8

“Pleasant words…sweetness…health to bones” Prov 16:24

“The light of the eyes rejoices the heart, and good news refreshes the bones.” Prov 15:30

Breath deep: take deep breaths. If it hurts, see a doctor.

Fathers

Dear Lord Daddy, restore the men to be men, responsible, leaders, speaking life to their wives and children.  Make them the priests in their families of which You are the Head, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

 

Break the Fast

Sleepyheads, we were asleep all night, then wake up, prepare coffee or tea & breakfast – God willing. But were we fasting while we slept?

I will bless the Lord who has given me counsel; my heart also instructs me in the night seasons.”                                                                                         Psalm 16:7

“How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!

“If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with You.”                                          Psalm 139:17-18

“I Love You, I Love You, I Love You,”

said a woman I met at a friend’s church. This is God talking to you & me.

The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying:
“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love;
Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.

Jeremiah 31:3

 We love Him because He first loved us.”                1 John 4:19

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”

John 3:15

O Lord, Will You Rend The Heavens?

Oh, that You would rend the heavens!
That You would come down!
That the mountains might shake at Your presence—”

Isaiah 64:1

Will You provide the Bibles for the thirsty souls requesting them?

How many people are hungry & thirsty for Your Word? To hold Your Book in their hands, to read whenever they can or need to?

Rain down, you heavens, from above,
And let the skies pour down righteousness;
Let the earth open, let them bring forth salvation,
And let righteousness spring up together.
I, the Lord, have created it.”

Isaiah 45:8

Disappointment

“I delight to do Thy will, O my God: yea, Thy law is within my heart.” Psalm 40:8

  • Church plant failure? It took a lot of money and people’s resources, the Pastor said.
  • Business disaster?
  • Divorce?
  • Child loss? Hillary Scott’s song: ‘How is my pain part of Your plan?’

We’re not immune from these, but we get up again. Haven’t you all heard people say: I was following You, God, obeying You, then ‘the bottom drops out’?

Oswald Chambers, October 13, https://utmost.org/individual-discouragement-and-personal-growth/

“We may have the vision of God and a very clear understanding of what God wants, and yet when we start to do it, there comes to us something equivalent to Moses’ forty years in the wilderness.”
