MIghty to Save, Heal, Deliver, Restore, Renew ....

"The Lord your God is with you,

He is mighty to save.

He will take great delight in you,

he will quiet you with his love,

he will rejoice over you with singing."

Zephaniah 3:17

A beautiful birthday gift wrapped in God's faithfulness. A trip camping, a dream soon to be realized. The night before a stumbling block set before us.

A seven year old son with a soaring fever, and yes, exposed to H1N1. The power of prayer ... the power of our Lord. Tucked him in bed, trusting in Jesus and nothing else.

In the wee hours, I took the bow of my birthday package. 98.6 No symptoms. Complete healing.

Friends, even H1N1 must bow at the foot of the cross.

A frenzy to pack and get ready to leave in a few short hours. Never realized how much gear you can pack in a walmart plastic bag :) In God's perfect timing, we left and continued to unwrap my birthday present.

Three days, two nights, soaking in God's creation. Crackling fires, gooey smores, Worship with guitar, games with sticks and shovels, sweet fellowship with new friends.

Friends, our God is mighty to save. He is mighty for every need in our life. He heals. He restores. He gives us perfect presents wrapped in His love. What gift do you need today?

It is a delight to intercede for you today. Leave me a prayer request and I will pray. And leave all of us a gift of encouragement, with a comment of how God has been mighty in your life!

Sarah Dawn,

I am always so encouraged when I visit you. We all must bow at the foot of the cross. Thank you for the reminder.

I'd love for you to pray for direction for me from the Lord regarding the ministry that He has entrusted to me. Also that I will bend my knee to whatever He asks of me....even if it is simply waiting on His timing.

Thank you.

Your reliance on God even for small things is a great testimony of God's love. I entrust Him with the care of my daughters, to bring them to a place of peace, to surround them with people who love Him and to set them free to become strong women who walk in His strength. You are wrapping your children in prayer. What a gift to them.

Sarah Dawn, so thankful that you were able to go on your camping trip. I have several prayer requests.

My sister Chris had surgery for a partially detached retina and it's been four weeks and it's still not reattached. She cannot work during this time and needs the income.

It's been a hectic time for Greg and me with our business and challenges. I so want to get to visit you and will email you privately. I have a thought.

Love you and thank you for posting this each Sunday morning.

God is mighty in our Adult Ed. class at Church. He opens our eyes to striving to be more like His Son!

Sarah said...

God is good! He also healed me of some incoming illness (with many around us having the flu). He is our healer!

Please pray for little Grace tonight. She has a fever, but the same God who healed me (and your little guy) can also heal Grace!

Many blessings to you, friend.

I have had blood tests today to see whether or not I am healed of my Hashimoto's Disease. Yes, even Hashimot's Disease, which the Doctor's say has no cure, must bow at the Name of Jesus! Pray for a good report for my blood test.

Miss Janet said...

LOVE that!

He is our Healer! He is the Great Physician!

He IS!

What a sweet blessing and answer to prayer.

Please pray for my dead marriage. ("D" for almost two years.) Pray the deceit and lies of satan would be removed from my beloved heart...restored to God's path of glory and reconciliation of a marriage HE united to begin.

Thank you.
