As the people of God assemble today may they hear the life-giving, powerful Word of God preached and may they rehearse it to one another as testimony and encouragement for strength for the battle and hope for tomorrow. May they approach the coming week and coming challenges of life with assurance that God Almighty is with them and will not forsake them. Deut.31:8,Amp—“It is the Lord Who goes before you; He will [march] with you; He will not fail you or let you go or forsake you; [let there be no cowardice or flinching, but] fear not, neither become broken [in spirit—depressed, dismayed, and unnerved with alarm].”
In front of the church where my father pastored for 22 years, on Jensen Drive in North Houston, there was a lighted cross high up on a pole. The vertical portion read “JESUS”, the left arm read “SAVES” and the right arm read “HEALS”. When my father got wondrously saved in the downtown Houston area he was taught the Word of God by Mother Hudson, Dad Richey, Raymond T. Richey, Brother Gerhardt, Harry Hodge and several other men and women of God he spoke to me of over the years. The message he was taught was always JESUS and that same JESUS HEALS AND SAVES. I heard him preach that message hundreds of times and know of many people it impacted and lives that were changed. It still impacts me and my preaching. I am the 13th preacher to come out from under my father’s ministry at Jensen Drive Assembly of God. I have preached that message hundreds of times over the last 46 years and I cannot help but encourage you with it again, JESUS SAVES AND HEALS!
The sound of hope is never insignificant. Hope is the sound of heaven moved into the earth through songs, preaching of the Word of God, prophecy, conversation, teaching and testimonies. No hope is too small. “…the mere sound of his name will signal hope, even among far-off unbelievers.” (Matt.12:21, Msg)

May your heart be filled with desire and expectancy to show forth the power of God as well as His words and principles of truth, doctrine and theology. May the naysayers that oppose and argue against the Spirit of Christ be speechless as they hear of and witness the powerful Word of God in action as lives are redeemed, bodies healed and signs and wonders loosed that point back to Jesus the risen Christ. (1Cor.2:4-5, KJV) “And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.” We are praying you discover daily the power of God is demonstrated through your life.

“Cause me to hear Your loving-kindness in the morning, for on You do I lean and in You do I trust. Cause me to know the way wherein I should walk, for I lift up my inner self to You.” (Ps. 143:8, Amp)
