Believe and receive!
Scripture reading for January 8th: Genesis 12-15, Psalm 148, Mark 5
Key Scriptures: Genesis 15:3-6 “And Abram said, “Behold, You have given me no offspring, and a member of my household will be my heir.” And behold, the Word of the Lord came to him: “This man shall not be your heir; your very own son shall be your heir.” And He brought him outside and said, “Look toward heaven, and number the stars, if you are able to number them.” Then He said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” And he believed the Lord, and He counted it to him as righteousness.”
Mark 5:25 “And there was a woman who had had a discharge of blood for twelve years, and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but rather grew worse. She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment. For she said, “If I touch even His garments, I will be made well.” And immediately the flow of blood dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease.”
We often struggle with insurmountable problems and obstacles that the best man has to offer cannot help solve. Then God speaks or we hear of His amazing power to heal and save. Faith arises that causes us to believe and receive the miracle we desperately need. God honors simple faith and is the author and finisher of it. Praise the Lord!
Faith confession and Prayer: Lord, thank You for Your amazing Word of truth and the record of miracles You have done and still do. Help me to place my trust in Your Word and see Your power today through faith.
Psalm 148:5 “Let them praise the Name of the Lord! For He commanded and they were created.”
