Pleasant Reminder

God's word is so good, even when you have read the same thing time and time again.

James 1:22-25 New International Version

22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.

Lord, I pray that I will serve you in everything I do and say.  I want your blessings and I want to bless others.  Without you, Lord, I am nothing.  Thank you for dying for me and giving me grace.  I continue to lift the hurt and sick, they cry out for healing Lord just as King Hezekiah (Isaiah 38) did when you gave him 15 more years of life.  Lord God, give them 15+ more years of life along with a deeper closer relationship with you.  If they are not saved Father, I ask that you turn their hearts to you.  I praise you and ask these things in your precious son's name, Jesus, Amen.

I have read the story of King Hezekiah's illness time and time again, but it just rings hope into my heart.  The thought that God hears my cries is so pleasant to my soul, so reassuring, so comforting.  I know that I can stand on the promise that He will heal, whether it be on earth or in Heaven, but it will be done in Jesus' name.
