Happy Friday All!
I am overwhelmed this morning with a complete sense of Gratitude and Joy as I continue to witness first hand the amazing and inexplicable POWER of PRAYER in all of our lives!!
I urge everyone to take this gift and powerful tool we have all been given seriously and to make it a central and continual part of your daily life!
It is life altering and I know there are some out there reading this today who now truly Believe the passage below to be a Truth and a Promise!
Have a Terrific Weekend!
"Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you."
(Matthew 7:7, AMPC)
In Mark chapter five, there was a woman who had been sick for twelve years.
The doctors gave her no hope.
But, she heard that Jesus was passing through her town.
Something deep down on the inside was saying, "This is your season. This is your time to get well."
In the natural, when she saw all the people around Jesus, she might have thought, "I'll never get to Him. It's so crowded and I'm weak."
She could have missed her season.
But instead of dwelling on those negative thoughts, instead of looking at her situation, she started reminding herself, "If I can just get to Jesus, I will be whole."
She made the choice to turn her thoughts in the right direction and was empowered to take a leap of faith.
She pressed through the crowd until she got just close enough to touch the edge of Jesus' robe.
Instantly, she was made whole.
Jesus said in Mark 5:34, "Daughter, your faith has made you well."
Notice it's our faith that activates God's power.
We have to press through our thoughts, press through our circumstances, and press through the crowd and obstacles until we touch Him.
And we cannot stop until we reach Him!
A Prayer for Today
"Father, I come to You today with an open and humble heart. I ask You to fill me with Your Strength, Peace and Joy so that I can press through to victory today. Show me the good plan You have for me in Jesus' name.
From "Today's Word" by Joel O
