I call all heaven to witness today that I have put on Christ.
I choose no other Lord than the Maker of heaven and earth.
This day I walk with Him and He will walk with me.
Reading: Psalm 103:1-5 (NLT)
Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me.
He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.
He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies.
He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!
Reading: Exodus 15:26 (NLT)
He said, “If you will listen carefully to the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in his sight, obeying his commands and keeping all his decrees, then I will not make you suffer any of the diseases I sent on the Egyptians; for I am the Lord who heals you.”
Reading: Acts 14:8-15 (NLT)
While they were at Lystra, Paul and Barnabas came upon a man with crippled feet. He had been that way from birth, so he had never walked. He was sitting and listening as Paul preached. Looking straight at him, Paul realized he had faith to be healed. So Paul called to him in a loud voice, “Stand up!” And the man jumped to his feet and started walking.
When the crowd saw what Paul had done, they shouted in their local dialect, “These men are gods in human form!” They decided that Barnabas was the Greek god Zeus and that Paul was Hermes, since he was the chief speaker. Now the temple of Zeus was located just outside the town. So the priest of the temple and the crowd brought bulls and wreaths of flowers to the town gates, and they prepared to offer sacrifices to the apostles.
But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard what was happening, they tore their clothing in dismay and ran out among the people, shouting, “Friends, why are you doing this? We are merely human beings—just like you! We have come to bring you the Good News that you should turn from these worthless things and turn to the living God, who made heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them.
Lord Jesus: You were pierced for my rebellion, crushed for my sins. You were beaten so I could be whole. You were whipped so I could be healed.
+ Thank you, Lord, for saving my soul.
+ Thank you, Lord, for making me whole.
+ Thank you, Lord, for your unfailing love and mercy .
+ Thank you, Lord, for filling my life with good things.
Lord God: Give me ears to hear, eyes to see, and an open heart to receive your Word to me today.
+ Quiet my mind, my heart, my spirit – that I may be attentive to you.
+ Fill me with joyful expectation – that I may hear you speaking to me.
+ Bend my will to your Kingdom purposes – that I may happily obey you.
+ Transform me by the renewing of my mind – that my life may display your goodness.
Holy Spirit: Hear am I, send me.
+ Give me discernment to see what the Father wants to say and do.
+ Give me the courage to act accordingly.
+ Give me the words to share the Good News of your mercy and grace with others.
+ Give me the joy of seeing lives changed by your healing presence.
