16 “When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick…”
Today’s Inspiration: Revival at Pentecost will occur when hearts are totally consecrated to the Lord, and ablaze with fire for what God is about to do. Our discipleship is always tested. Jesus always cast out demons with a word. Matthew 8:16. To the winds he commands it to be still. To the demons he cast them out with the words ‘Be gone’. Matthew 8:32. To the sinners he told them their sins are forgiven. Matthew 9:2.
So never fear being tormented but instead call upon Jesus to harass and torment the demons of infirmities for Jesus has taken the infirmities out at cavalry thus fulfilling scriptures. Matthew 8:17. He sent His word to heal diseases and delivered them from destruction. Psalm 107:20.
Such is the power of God’s word that magnifies and fulfils what God set out to accomplish. God be praised. Our redeemer lives..
Prayer: Lord to You I give thanks for Your loving kindness and for Your awesome wonders. For You satisfied the thirsty soul and the hungry soul You filled what is good. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
1 John 4:18
18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
Today’s Inspiration: Fear is our greatest enemy and has to be conquered by love for love casts out fear. 1 John 4:18. To nurture the damaged trees of wrong done to us is to be a prisoner of the past. To refuse to forgive is also destructive. Unforgiveness choked the life out of marriage or out of family relationship and friendship. To avoid forgiving would mean imprisoning your emotions.
It costs the Lord Jesus at Cavalry to bring us forgiveness. If we are to bear the image of God we cannot afford not to forgive our offender. Forgiveness carries a condition that it starts with us first to forgive the offender. To accept God’s forgiveness and to refuse to forgive our offenders is a wicked act as Jesus explained in the parable of unforgiven servant in Matthew 18:21-35. When you don’t forgive and you choose to be bitter against the offender, you have made yourself a slave to the offender.
