In my life and for my church, I am BELIEVING for the MANIFESTATION of the resurrected POWER of God! What do I mean by that? If you are reading this and you are not a Christian, or you have been away from the Lord, know this: ONE CALL to Jesus fixes it all! One hand reaching out to Heaven saying, “Lord, forgive me” with a sincere heart will cause His power to come and begin manifesting in you!
Do you need healing right now? Over the last month and a half, we have seen many people healed from all kinds of different things.
This past Sunday I asked people, “How many have been healed just this calendar year? Raise your hands real high.” Many hands were raised. I asked that question for those who could see the hands that went up. I wanted them to see the manifestation of the resurrected POWER of God! Blood issues were healed! Lumps vanished! Knee, back and elbow issues were healed. In other words, resurrected power MANIFESTED!
God wants to bring something special into our lives all the time. Not just to those in my church, but to every one of us! I keep my heart open for this. I pray regularly, “Lord, manifest Your resurrected power in me.” We all need to pray that prayer for ourselves.
Maybe you do not need a physical healing but need an emotional healing instead. It could be that your heart has been broken. Maybe children or grandchildren have gone astray. Family or friends have turned their back on you. There are so many different things that can get on us. The older you get the more issues you have. More kids, grand-kids, more people and associations… it gets bigger all the time. Every year we experience more and more.
Things in life can break you, and they can hurt you. However, here’s the good news! Jesus said the anointing of the Lord is on Me!
18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. Luke 4:18 (KJV) [emphasis mine]
He said, to heal the brokenhearted. He was sent to heal the broken heart. Evidently, to heal the brokenhearted is an issue in humanity. I have had my heart broken, have you? I have had my emotions twisted, dashed and in turmoil. We have all had hopes wiped off the board, dreams that have been destroyed, people who have stabbed us in the back… and all the other things that happen in life. It has caused hurt, pain and heartache. Most have experienced brokenness at many levels. In the midst of it all, God brings His anointing.
16 They are not of the world, just as
I am not of the world. John 17:16 (NKJV)
He tells us we are not of this world. We are of another world. Don’t live your life based on what you can get in this world. Live your life on the Kingdom being manifested in the Earth. The Bible says,
Your Kingdom come. Your will be done on
earth as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:10 (NKJV)
I don’t know about your picture of Heaven, but my picture of Heaven is pretty cool. No more sickness, no more disease, no more broken hearts.
I want you to hear me right now. I KNOW there are issues with broken hearts for some of you reading this! The resurrection power of the Lord wants to come and heal you. You may think, “I’m just here reading a blog post.” No… You are here for an overhaul! The Lord brought you to this to give you an overhaul from the top of your head to the soles of your feet. He wants you walking and enjoying the resurrected power that He paid the price for!
If you are broken right now and you need something beyond religion… if you need something beyond what you’ve experienced in your past and you are ready to encounter God and His love, TODAY is your day! NOW is your time!
Listen, I believe you get what you prepare for! I believe you get what you receive into your life! God wants this for you, YOU have to want it for yourself! You have to be willing to RECEIVE what God has for you!
If you are tired, thirsty and broken, come to God right now and take a drink of the living water! There is a miracle for you today if you will come into God’s presence in faith! Bring your brokenness, bring your hurt, bring your faith, and lay it before God today! RECEIVE the resurrection power of the Lord Jesus Christ!
If you need to give your life to Christ, RIGHT NOW is a good time! If you need to come back to God, RIGHT NOW is a good time! If you need a healing miracle, RIGHT NOW is a good time! If you need your broken heart healed, RIGHT NOW is a good time to receive!
8 I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere,
lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.
1 Timothy 2:8 (NKJV)
I want you to take a step of faith and stretch your hands out to Heaven and pray this prayer:
Lord, I come to You right now. I do not have any doubt. I have faith in You! Forgive me of my sins. Forgive me for all the times I’ve strayed from You. Come Jesus! Come into my life and come into my situation. I give my brokenness to You. I give my hurt, my pain and heartache to You. I lay it down at Your feet. Show me the POWER of the resurrection in what I am going through! I RECEIVE Your power! I RECEIVE Your healing! I RECEIVE Your love! I trust YOU God! I receive EVERYTHING you have for me in the name of Jesus! Amen!
My prayer for you is that you will KNOW the POWER of the resurrection! Remember, ONE CALL to Jesus fixes it all!
