Good morning everyone!
It’s getting cold! I had to scrape my windshield the other day ;o(. But all is good because… did you see the beautiful colors in the trees? Autumn is so colorful …God’s paint brush at work… Amen!
Well in the next part of James 5 we move into 13-18. In here can you tell what James is pointing out? Does James show you that it’s prayer that helps? Or is it the faith of the one or the faith of those who pray for the one? Meaning, if I were sick, do you think my faith is exercised or is it the faith of those who pray for me? What about “confession”? Is this needed before healing can take place?
Oh and one other point… how can this be applied to the military?
13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. 17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. 18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit.
Dear God I know that I may not understand all of your words but I know in my heart that the Holy Spirit is there helping me to learn. Lord I pray that you open my mind to understand, to clear my mind of doubt and confusion. Hold me to the understanding that no matter what, it’s my faith that will open my heart to your word and when my time has come; I will be with you and you will show me what I don’t understand. I pray this in Jesus name…AMEN!
Have a Great Day!
Keep your head up! GOD gives his hardest battles to his strongest SOLDIERS…
So as we go through our day let us go out to help and to care for all that need it, in Jesus’ name…Amen!
