It's a beautiful day in the "Wild West". I praise God for this day and everyday. I started a new bible study on Monday. In just the few days that I have started this study I feel strengthened. Sometimes, we need to be reminded of His promises, His faith and His love for us.
You see, I have been feeling sorry for myself. You know, woe is me kind of thing. I woke up a couple of weeks ago and had apparently re-injured my back. When you are in constant pain and there is nothing you can do about it, it wears you down physically and spiritually. I know, it was my fault for not knowing, no that's not the word, adhering to my limits. I ended up in a funk that touched my spirit.
I wonder if it takes a mountain of pain to get my attention. I should not have needed this reminder of God's eternal love for me, but apparently I did. I look back to all the blessings and miracles in my life that God has freely given and am reminded just how deep and constant His love flows.
New Living Translation (NLT)
6 And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.
I believe in the healing power of God. I am believing for a healing touch from God. I believe that I have already been healed. God's word is alive and active in me. I love my Creator, who is the Creator of all things.
19 I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power 20 that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. 21 Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. 22 God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. 23 And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.
