Verse Of The Day : Turn back, and tell Hezekiah the prince of my people, ‘Thus says the LORD,… “I have heard your prayer. I have seen your tears. Behold, I will heal you…I will add to your days fifteen years… ‘ ” 2Kings 20 : 5 , 6
LISTEN : Divine healing is available to anyone who comes to God by faith. God is alive. Therefore, everything His power has ever accomplished is still available today. Time can change, people can as well change, but God is the same forever. The Bible says, ” For I am the LORD, I change not… ” (Malachi 3 : 6). Similarly, Hebrews 13 : 8 says, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” Beloved, God is ever faithful. He can never go back on His word if you come to Him by faith. Anyone who comes to Him in faith will go back with testimony. When King Hezekiah was terminally sick, God sent him a message through Prophet Isaiah to set his house in order for he was going to die. Hezekiah received the message, but pleaded his case with God. He prayed and wept bitterly making God to change His mind. God said to him, “I have heard your prayer. I have seen your tears. Behold, I will heal you…I will add to your days fifteen years.” (2 Kings 20 : 5 , 6). Beloved, are you sick and needs healing? Is your case like Hezekiah’s? Are you diagnosed with a terminal disease? Fear not! Pray and seek the face of God. Just swallow the miracle pill of God, even FAITH. Friend, do not look at your situation, rather fix your eyes on God and be strong! Faith in God can terminate the reign of sickness in your life. Besides, terminal illnesses will die for you to live when your faith agrees with the word of God. My dear, in the name of Jesus, I cammand you to be healed now. Get up from that sick bed and be well again. Congratulations, you are healed.

TOPIC: HAVE FAITH IN GOD
Bible Verse : Jesus said to them, “Have faith in God. Mark 11 : 22
LISTEN : The previous day Jesus Christ cursed a fig tree for failing to produce fruit for Him and His disciples when they were hungry. (Mark 11 : 12 – 14). The next day as they passed by it, Peter reminded Jesus of the fig tree He had cursed the previous day, noting that it had withered; but Jesus Christ responded, “Have faith in God.” I believe this was not the kind of answer Peter expected to receive. However, Jesus gave the answer because He wanted His disciples to learn a big lesson from the incident of the fig tree. He wants them to know that faith in God can make everything possible. When Peter expressed surprise over the withered fig tree, Jesus Christ in His reply challenged him to grow stronger in faith to be able to walk in the realm of possibilities. When Jesus Christ urged him to have faith in God, He was saying something like, “You should not be surprised that God did what I asked! You too must trust that God will do whatever you ask him to do!” In other words, He was challenging every believer in Christ Jesus to live in faith no matter the circumstance ; only until then can we receive what God has freely given to us. Beloved, the problem we have when we pray is not that there is no God to answer, but that there is no faith to receive. If there is faith to receive, nothing shall be impossible to us. (Mark 9 : 23). When there is no faith we limit ourselves. Beloved, grow your faith in God and you will grow in His grace.
