I didn't really know what it was.
I have had a burden of prayer for a couple of people.
In a matter of 24 hours, I found out why.
Our friends in Uganda are dealing with serious illnesses this week, and in the middle of two teams! The enemy wants to put a damper on the spreading of The Gospel- and he is doing his best. But our God is awesome, and it is HE who reigns- in heaven, and on earth.
We are praying for you Zane!
Our Friend from the North, who I mentioned a few weeks back, has been taken from his home
and put in custody. Once again- the enemy trying to stop the furthering of The Gospel.
This is serious stuff friends.
The Word of God is the beginning of faith. The Message of God's sacrifice for our salvation, in HIS own words. That is a powerful thing!
Just stop and think about the power that God's words have:
They spoke the world into being ~ Gen. chapter 1
They gave Man dominion over the earth ~ Gen. chapter 2
They cursed Man for his transgressions ~ Gen. chapter 3
They gave Moses the Law ~ Exodus chapter 20
They declared Jesus to be God ~ Mat. 3:17
Jesus tells us that ALL of His words, were God's ~ John 14:24
Therefore: every word Jesus spoke on this earth, was a direct word from God.
And His words forgave our transgressions, and conquered death ~ John 19:30
And they will offer me living water in the End ~ Rev. 21:6
Now, in Matthew 4, we see that Satan knows the Word of God.
If you were him, wouldn't you want to keep people from hearing it??
He knows the ending!
He gave us His Word.
Be IN it.
We are His feet.
Let's keep the Word moving.
