But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. –Jas 1:25
I was not being Blessed in my deed. I was working for the Lord; yet my physical condition was not a witness in any way. I am sure that my “worldly” friends observed me and said: “My goodness…she’s worse off now than she used to be.” Of course, that’s how it looked. I kind of appeared broken down. On the inside I thought I was in pretty good shape spiriutually; but there was room for more of Jesus and I had to figure it out for myself.
If you are a believer and you get sick; it’s fairly easy to learn how to “live with it.” Oh, I admit that at first I expected my affliction to go away and when it didn’t…I learned to live with it.
Well, that was until I woke up!My spirit became troubled a few months ago, and I began to wonder why I had all these physical problems and so I went to the bible. I prayed, I repented, I forgave and then I decided to just seek Jesus.
I mean REALLY go all out!
I go to church, I read the bible…but my time given to God was certainly nothing to brag about. I imagine that it still isn’t. I’ll be perfectly content when God caan have all of my days and evenings.
In my search, I found the cross, Jesus and the Blood and the power and the answers were all there!
I began to get closer, to press in, to worship, to understand, to love and to receive. My life changed as I sat expecting! Things turned!
Exodus 12:13 “… and when I see the blood, I will pass over
you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you,
when I smite the land of Egypt.”
There is power in the Word of God…embrace it!
Happy Resurrection Day!
