GODS WORD IS MEDICINE....FROM A DEVOTION.ORG

God's Word Is Medicine

God's Word is medicine � for any weakness or sickness in body,
mind, finances, family, marriage, etc.

Whatever sickness or disease you suffer from, God's Word can
cure it. God's Word is effective for any condition. It works as
a preventative as well as a cure. There is no cost and no
danger of taking an overdose.

Like any medicine, God's Word must be taken to be effective. It
will not work sitting on the shelf. And it has to be taken
according to the directions.

But if you will follow God's directions as faithfully as you
would follow the directions of a human doctor, you will see
wonderful results.

Here are the directions:

PROVERBS 4:20-23 NKJ
20 My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my
sayings.
21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the
midst of your heart;
22 For they are life to those who find them, and health to all
their flesh.
23 Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the
issues of life.

In verse 22 the Hebrew word translated health is translated as
medicine in some translations.

PSALM 107:20 NKJ
20 He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from
their destructions.

God's Word will heal. It is full of God's power and carries the
authority of God who spoke it.

JOHN 8:31-32 NKJ
31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, "If you
abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.
32 "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you
free."

You have the guarantee of Jesus � His Word will produce
freedom.

But, you must abide, or continue in His Word. You must feed it
in until you know that you know that you know the truth. Then
you will act on that truth � and it will make you free.

God's medicine works by taking His Word into your being. You
do that by listening to the Word, reading the Word, and
speaking the Word.

You must fill your thoughts with the Word of God. The more of
God's medicine you take, the better off you will be.

SAY THIS: I will take God's medicine daily and it will bring
healing into my life.

BE STILL....

IN PSALM 48:10 it says:

"Be still and know I am God."

For so many of us, it is hard to "BE STILL"...We are busy running to and fro. Saying "I must get this done today." Frantically, we think if it doesn't get done today, something earth shattering is going to happen.

We forget GOD HAS EVERYTHING UNDER CONTROL.....HE knows what NEEDS to get done today....HE knows what NEEDS to get done TOMORROW....HE KNOWS....HE KNOWS.....Over and over HE is telling us "Be still and know I am God."

Its through the STILLNESS that GOD speaks to us. He can't speak to us when we are running all the time....He DESIRES our ENTIRE SELF.....

Tears are running down my cheeks....They are tears of joy....Tears of contentment...Tears of feeling HIS presence as I write this....Tears of TOTAL SUBMISSION to THE LORD, MY FATHER...Tears of a daughter who loves her Father so much....

My Father has told me "BE STILL" and with those words I have obeyed....

Being Still before my Father, He has revealed that He has a NEW season opening for me. He is PREPARING me "FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS"......His words are like a song of Love to my heart. "Be Still, for I know the plans I have for you"....

Each one of us can have this intimate time with our Father.....

We need to take time out from busy schedules, slow down. enjoy the things that God has given us....Most important:

We need to listen to HIS words:

"BE STILL KNOW I AM GOD..."

I pray for each of you that read this, that it will be a blessing....to remind you, SLOW DOWN and BE STILL....

With all my heart, I love you all and pray that you are having a blessed week so far.....

In Gods Love,
Cindy

WILL A LITTLE DAB DO YOU...NOT ME....I WANT MORE..

We had a great service today....The word that was brought forth was once again a timely one. The title of the message was "ARE YOU FULL"....For me, the one sentence that came through loud and clear was "WILL A LITTLE DAB DO YOU"....Will a "Little dab do you" when it comes to God? Do you just want ALOT of GOD on Sundays and then as you go through your week, you get an attitude of "OH, A LITTLE DAB" of GOD will get me through. Is this what we want?

I can say for myself, NO THAT IS NOT WHAT I WANT...."A LITTLE DAB OF GOD IS NOT ENOUGH FOR THIS GIRL." I want a BIG DAB OF GOD EVERY DAY!!! I want my cup FILLED each and every day by my FATHER. I don't want to just give him the scraps of my days....He doesn't give me a "LITTLE DAB" when He is blessing me with miracles, so why should I only want to give Him a little DAB....

God wants us to consume ALL that He has for us. He wants US to consume HIM in our hearts, In our daily routines. He wants us to have that CONSUMING FIRE burning within us for HIM....

HEBREWS 12:29 "FOR OUR GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE."

Lets not give GOD just a DAB of the consuming fire within us just on Sundays...Let that burning, consuming fire be given to HIM EVERY DAY...Let Him see that FIRE burning within you when you are in the work place...when you are in the grocery store, when you are at the gym...Wherever you are, Whatever you are doing, BRING GOD TO THE FOREFRONT AND DON'T JUST GIVE HIM A LITTLE DAB....GIVE HIM ALL YOU HAVE....LET HIM EMPTY YOU AND FILL YOU AGAIN AS THE NEW DAY DAWNS.....

In Gods Love,
Cindy

Thank You Pastor Keith......

LORD BE MY LIGHT.....

I would rather walk with God in the dark than go alone in the
light.

-- Mary Gardiner Brainard

This quote is so timely....

Through ALL the darkness we may face and go through in our lives, we can be assured that JESUS is right there with us. Guiding us, leading us, protecting us and through that DARKNESS HE WILL BRING US TO THE LIGHT.....HIS LIGHT.....HIS PURPOSE.....HIS WILL....

We need to be OBEDIENT as we WALK through the DARKNESS with HIM. We can't say, "Lord this is not the way I WANT TO DO IT."....It's not up to us to TELL GOD THAT THIS IS NOT THE WAY...Remember HE KNOWS THE WAY.......

TRY walking in the LIGHT BY YOURSELF.....without JESUS....WALK IN THE "LIGHT" OF THE WORLD, a WORLD where not everyone knows JESUS. When you seem LOST they just ignore you. When you have JESUS, HE FINDS YOU and will NEVER IGNORE YOU....When you FALL they won't pick you up....When you have JESUS, HE IS RIGHT THERE TO PICK YOU UP.....When you say I QUIT I CANT GO ON....They will just let you quit....When you have JESUS, HE WON'T LET YOU QUIT OR GIVE UP, BECAUSE YOU ARE HIS CHILD AND HE LOVES YOU....

DARKNESS HAS TO COME BEFORE THE LIGHT.....However, I know, even though I may be walking in DARKNESS for a SEASON, MY LORD, MY FATHER, MY SAVIOR is right there beside me walking with me....During the DARKEST times of my LIFE, I know his arms are wrapped around me keeping me warm and safe....And PRAISE BE TO GOD, TOGETHER HE AND I WILL SEE THAT DARKNESS DISAPPEAR AND SHARE THE LIGHT THAT IS IN FRONT OF US....

I ask you today:

Wouldn't you rather WALK IN THE DARKNESS WITH JESUS, knowing that THE LIGHT is coming and HE IS THERE WITH YOU?

In Gods Love
Cindy

A Perfect Friend

PROVERBS 18:24 RSV

24 There are friends who pretend to be friends, but there is a
friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Would you like to have a perfect friend?

A friend who loved you no matter what you did.

A friend who would always be there when you needed them.

A friend who knew you intimately yet still loved you.

A friend who always encouraged you and never put you down.

A friend who was smart but not conceited.

A friend who had no personal problems to distract them.

A friend who was powerful and famous, yet down-to-earth and
approachable.

A friend who is righteous yet merciful to others.

A friend who never makes a mistake.

A friend who enjoyed having a good time and sharing a laugh
with you.

A friend who had the knowledge and ability to help you with
everything.

A friend who is not too good to wash your feet or clean your
toilet, yet talented enough to be the best at everything.

A friend who puts your interests ahead of their own.

A friend who loves you more than you love yourself.

A friend who would be willing to die for you.

There is only one. His name is Jesus, and He wants to be your
friend.

SAY THIS: Jesus is my friend.

This touched my heart when I read it a few minutes ago....

We all have "FRIENDS".....

But to have that "ONE SPECIAL FRIEND" that no matters what happens is always there for us...Doesn't judge us.....Loves us for who we are......

I AM BLESSED TO SAY THAT JESUS IS MY BEST FRIEND IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH....WHEN THE DAY COMES WHEN I GET TO MEET HIM FACE TO FACE, I CAN'T WAIT TO SAY "I AM SO HAPPY TO MEET YOU."........

In Gods Love

A LION CHASERS MANIFESTO. Pastor Keith Jones

It's a beautiful SON Morning....
"THIS IS THE DAY THE LORD HAS MADE, LET US REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT"

Over the past several weeks Pastor Keith has been doing a teaching on CHASING LIONS....It has been an inspiring teaching and last night was the conclusion....He gave us a hand out at the end entitled: A LION CHASERS MANIFESTO" It really ministered to me....I want to share it with you today and I hope it will also minister to you.....

A LION CHASERS MANIFESTO

Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death. Grab life by the mane. Set God-sized goals. Pursue God-ordained passions. Go after a dream that is destined to fail without divine intervention. Keep asking questions. Keep making mistakes. Keep seeking God. Stop pointing out problems and become part of the solution. Stop repeating the past and start creating the future. Stop playing it safe and start taking risks. Expand your horizons. Accumulate experiences. Consider the lilies. Enjoy the journey. Find every excuse you can to celebrate everything you can. Live like today is the first day and the last day of your life. Don't let what's wrong with you keep you from worshipping what's right with God. Burn sinful bridges. Blaze a new trail. Criticize by creating. Worry less about what people think and more about what God thinks. Don't try to be who you're not. Be yourself. Laugh at yourself. Quit holding out. Quit holding back. Quit running away.

~CHASE THE LION ~

For myself, this is like an everyday LIVING CREED. These things are not things that are impossible to accomplish. Yes, some of these things will be difficult to do, but just remember, was it EASY for JESUS to be up on that CROSS with nail-pierced hands and dying for OUR SINS? NO!!! but, HE did it because HE LOVES us and wants his children to be FREE....We as HIS children, can at least try to live by these words....

RUN THAT RACE.....DON'T LOOK BACK.....JUST KEEP MOVING FORWARD...TAKE RISKS....DON'T BE AFRAID, YOUR FATHER IS RIGHT THERE WITH YOU....

Have a wonderful and beautiful day.....

In Gods Love,
Cindy
