Prayer, Thought for Today

Faith in Infirmities Hezekiah in his infirmity yesterday prayed in faith to the wall, and God gave him fifteen more years to his life. Today, the Apostle Paul in his infirmity prayed in faith thrice [three] times for the Lord to remove his infirmity. Then Jesus spoke to him saying, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness." Faith in infirmities must be solid faith without any wavering of disbelief. That is what God is expecting from His believer's in Jesus Christ. I urge all to continue your faith in your infirmity.

(John 10:27) I will commit my way, O Lord, to Thee, nor doubt Thy love, though dark the way may be; Nor murmur, for the sorrow is from God, and there is comfort even in Thy rod. —Unknown One of the characteristics of the relationship that exists between a shepherd and his flock is that sheep can always distinguish the voice of their particular shepherd. The sheep’s responsibility is simply to listen and follow. As Christians, we worship and acknowledge God as our Creator and Redeemer. But how comforting it is to realize that this same great God is also “my Shepherd.” In time of stress, I can rest securely in His strong arms.
