Thank you Lord for your confirmations, guidance, and help. Thank you for your confirming words. They are peace and life to my soul, thank you. Here is a testimony that I pray blesses you and builds your faith in the Lord. Edification.. so that the brethren may be strengthened. In Him, amen.
The other day, a sister in-Christ asked for prayer. Her cousin Jim had surgery and an incision was having challenges healing since January. When I began to pray, a word was laid on my heart. She said Jim was a Christian, so the word that I felt/heard in me was that this man was a new creation in Christ. Here is the first part of the prayer:
Lord, you said – Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.. Lord, you said ‘if’ we be in Christ. If Jim is in You.. then he is a new creature, amen. Lord, it is written that old things have passed away.. and I do not believe this is limited to just the choices we make with sin, but also things of this fallen world that can happen to our physical bodies such as sickness, disease, and the like.
Jeremiah 17:7-8 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
Psalms 119:111-112 Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart. I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes alway, even unto the end.
