Welcome 2012!

Faith and Hope for a ‘New’ Year

JESUS My Lord and Savior  © All Rights Reserved -Anastasia Diamond                                    

How often we celebrate a New Year thinking, and yes, praying…Please let this year be better than the last one.

No matter our beliefs, we all want to let go of the pressures, sorrows, disappointments and stress of the old…in hopes of revival, renewal, refreshment for the new. Though we know there will be challenges, we press forward in renewed hope that the New Year will bring resolve, peace, solutions, reconciliations and new beginnings.

What distinguishes Christian hope from worldly hope?

Christian hope is intricately connected to faith in God and His perfect will in all things. Worldly hope is in people, circumstances, and luck.

My New Year prayer for you, and for me…

May 2012 bring a year of new beginnings in the depth of your hope and faith in God’s promises, purposes, and perfect will for you and your loved ones. May you not be conformed to this world, but choose to be transformed by the renewing of your mind that you may prove what is the good, acceptable, and perfect will of God. May His anointed word truly be a lamp unto your feet and a light unto your path. May He continually sanctify you, making you holy by His  truth and teaching you His word. May grace and peace be multiplied to you. May you wait upon Him with renewed strength; mount up with wings as eagles; run, and not be weary; walk, and not faint. May you always seek His face, and in all things submit to the leadings of His indwelling Holy Spirit, who He placed in your heart. May you grow in purity, understanding, patience and kindness. May you love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and with all your strength. May your New Year be blessed with an overflowing abundance of His  love, wisdom and discernment. May you glorify His Name and praise Him in all things. And…may you finish well dear one.

God's WORD-The Lamp Unto My Feet...and Light Unto My Path

God is the Master Physician
The gift of healing is a biblical promise to be received, when it is asked for in the name of Jesus; for by His stripes we are healed. We have all had times when we have prayed or cried out for healing for ourselves, and for others. How many times have you received all that you asked for? Once, twice, ten times, one hundred times…none?

Healing is in His perfect will for each of us

God’s word teaches us that healing is in accord with His perfect will for each of us. However, how often have we unknowingly diverted His plan for complete physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing? We live in an instant gratification society that reaches into the depths of our hearts and minds to create an ‘instant healing’ scenario, that if not met, can tear at our faith and give us an excuse for denying God’s goodness.

When this happens, instead of receiving all that He holds in store for us, we rob Him of His rightful praise for all that He has done, all that He is doing, and all that He is going to do. Instead of standing on His promises and continually praising Him for our healing, we immediately return to reciting our laundry list of ills, ailments, and addictions. We then walk away discouraged, disappointed, and feeling that God’s promise for healing does not include us.

There is a better way!

Enter your prayer for healing for yourself and others with anticipation; not knowing when the healing will come, but with unwavering faith in His promise, that it will come. We must relinquish the process to Him. Yes, although some healing is instantaneous, this is where walking by faith, not by sight, is put into action. For, not unlike other movements from God, many more healings seem to be rather progressive, happening more slowly but steadily, as we learn to walk in His will. Still, other healings may come in ways that we would not choose or understand.

Receive His gift of healing in His time, in His way…and in His will

So, praise Him in all things, receiving His gracious gift of healing – in His time, in His way, and in His will. You will no longer be disappointed if you trust that He truly has your best interest at heart. Instead, you will walk in anticipation of the fulfillment of His promises. You will walk in the wonderment of His perfect timing. You will rejoice, refilled, and encouraged that His word truly is medicine to all our flesh.
