Jeremiah 17:14
“Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; Save me, and I shall be saved, For You are my praise.”

God made this body. Mine. Yours. He is the Creator. He knows our heartbeat, He knows how many hairs are on our head, He knows the makeup of our skin. He knows. Why? Because He made.

So why is this?

Why do we always go to the doctor for colds, the medical center for meds, the pharmacy for drugs? Do they know our bodies to the depth and degree of the very Creator of our bodies?

God is the Great Physician. The Doctor. The Healer.

He knows. And He heals.

Ask Him. In Jesus name, pray for healing and strength and energy and recovery. Pray. Ask our Abba Daddy. And praise Him as He heals the bodies that He knows best; because after all, He did make and does know, every organ and every part.

1 John 4:19 (pool of love)

1 John 4:19
We love because he first loved us.

Love loved us…

…and we love because Love loved us.

I cannot get over this. Love and God cannot be separated because God is love and love is God. And when we love others…it’s like we give them a piece of God. If your relationship with God suffers, your ability to love with the pure love of God, suffers as well. I have found that the days it is hardest to love are often the days with little or no quality God time. You must first sit in the pool of love and soak it up, before  you can squeeze it into the lives of others. Soak up Love today. And wring it out into the hearts of many.

John 1:6 (insert your name)

“There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.”

John 1:6

Insert your name in there.

“There was a man (or, woman) sent from God, whose name was (your name).

That’s crazy to me. God. God. Do we understand who this is? God. To think that He would choose me – you – and send us to carry His truth to others? To be used of God, to be sent by God…what an honor.

“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace.

In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”

John 16:33

In the heat of the battle, remember this: we do not fight for victory, but rather, from victory.

Do take heart, my friend.

psalm 50:10-11

10 For every beast of the forest is Mine,
And the cattle on a thousand hills.
11 I know all the birds of the mountains,
And the wild beasts of the field are Mine.

My Abba daddy owns the cattle on a thousand hills…

…how about yours?

Psalm 103:1-2 (praise always)

“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.”

Psalm 103:1-2

Exactly how many verses in the Bible command praise?

I don’t know.

But it’s a lot.

And I conclude this: praise first, praise always, praise forever. It can’t end, it must continue, it will be. ‘Cuz this is God we’re talking about. And He deserves our praise and nothing less.

19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.

20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.

21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Matthew 6:19-21

I like my things. My laptop. My coffee. My music.

But I want to like God’s things.

His people. His Word. His heart.

I want that gold in heaven, not this yellow on earth.
