The words of the Lord, are life, unto those who find them.
King James Version (KJV)
“My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.”
Life, and health to their flesh, Gods words…
I have been at this little UMC for about 6 years. I believe the Lord brought me there, for me to learn people skills.
(I am of the Dr Laura, school of counselling). Why did you do that, could you not see where that would lead?
I also believe, I was brought there to lead the Pastor to a deeper knowledge of the Lord.
I have failed in both areas.
I am in my 60’s and am one of the youth in the church. lol..
It has been a struggle for me, I desire, they be healthy, strong and joyful, and quite frankly, I am not sure what or how to pray for the ravages of time.
3 John 1:2
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
I cannot stop time, but I trust their souls can prosper. There are 5 or more folks who are in poor health.
I had the brainstorm, to give them, Charles Capps book, “God’s Creative Power For Healing.”
He gathers scriptures about healing, all in one little booklet. I have gotten and studied several of his pamphlets, (In Him, Finances, ect).
They are wonderful ways to learn Gods word.
You read them out loud, over and over. You build up your faith, by hearing the word spoken.
Suddenly His words are in your eyes, ears and heart. They are life and health unto those who find them.
I gave them out today. I really have little hope that they will even read them once. They have not been taught the Word has Power.
They are comfortable, in their salvation and with the small God they allow to move in their lives.
I am heart broken…. I will be praying these scripures for them though. In Faith that God can touch and enlighten them.
Lord, send Your Spirit of Truth, to this place You have planted me. Amen
