I am thankful, Holy Father, that my prayer is heard and it is not in vain. I declare that I will relentlessly continue in prayer and thanksgiving before my God who hears and acts in my behalf. “Let my prayer be set before You as incense,The lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.” (Ps.141:2, NKJV)
In a meeting recently I had a word of knowledge about a raw stomach and raw intestines and Kathy had one about problems with the mind and with thoughts. That was in the service on Saturday night. For three years a lady’s stomach and intestines have been raw and she was able to eat only certain kinds of food. She had to carry her food with her everywhere she went because certain foods could have caused her death. She said that her body was eating itself. She also had a swollen liver that protruded from her abdomen about the size of half a grapefruit. Everything going on in her body and all the medications were having an effect on her mind and thought processes. She was having great difficulty at work because she could not keep her thoughts on a concept long enough to get it written out in a complete thought. But when she heard the words of knowledge, the pain stopped and her swollen liver went down. Sunday morning she testified that she was still without pain and that she had eaten sausage and cheese for breakfast which she had not eaten in three years! Her thoughts were clear and she had no pain. He is the God of the moment. (3rd excerpt from Marty’s article “God of the Moment”)
As the people of God assemble today, may He use our instructors to clearly point out the path for us to walk on. May we hear and see all the truths, directions and wise instructions that bring us to the path of Light so that we may go victoriously throughout our lives displaying the worth and value of a life lived according to the unfailing Word of God. May unbelievers observe and inquire about the road that Jesus pioneered for us. “. . . Point out the road I must travel; I’m all ears, all eyes before you.” (Ps.143:8, Msg)
May the Lord help us to get done everything we need to get done this year. May we be able to reach cooperative contacts who will facilitate linking us up with the people and resources necessary for our goals. May filled-out forms and applications gain the notice of those who have the capability to act in accordance with our needs. May the Lord hold in check those who might try to take advantage of our situation and include more steps than necessary in order to charge more than is necessary. May the Lord fight in our behalf. “The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest.” (Ex.14:14, Amp)
More and more often these days we are seeing or hearing about the Lord God doing awesome things in a moment of time that we have desired and prayed to see for decades. A scientist who had suffered from a disease for 34 years was healed in a moment. I had a word of knowledge that described what he had been dealing with. He told me that while he was very thankful for the sudden healing, he was just a bit disappointed. He had heard people give testimonies about miracles and the awesome things that they felt or heard or saw in the event, but he told me he was disappointed that he didn’t feel or see anything. He said that, without anything unusual taking place, he was suddenly, completely healed while standing with his hands lifted. (2nd excerpt from Marty’s article “God of the Moment”)
In days to come, as you walk before God Most High in the light of His Word and trust in Him, may our beneficent Father grant you good times, happy times and times of celebration. May you look to the future expecting to see the goodness of God in your life and the lives of your family. Don’t be defeated by what appears to be on the horizon. Don’t be disheartened by rumors and every story that finds flight on the fancy of someone’s fears or imagination. May our merciful Father God send delightful surprises your way and grant you good times, happy times and times of celebration. (2Chron.6:41b, Msg) “…let your holy people celebrate goodness…” We are praying you discover daily God’s goodness working in your life.
