People have dealt with sun burns due to the many hot summer days. What if we as Christian believers had Son burns?


I am speaking about the truth from Luke 24:32, "And they said to one another, Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?"

 

The warmth and presence of God's love fills our whole being as we walk with Him. The two men on the road to Emmaus in Luke 24 experienced a personal encounter with the living Christ. He took the time to explain Himself, beginning with Moses and all the Prophets in Scripture.

 

We can also be blessed and warmed as we take the time to sit with the Lord in prayer, study, and friendship.  We can also receive the mighty baptism and fire of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:11, Acts 1:1-18).


We serve a risen Savior who is coming again with many rewards. "But to you who fear my name the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings..." (Malachi 4:2). Let us all receive the brilliant healing rays of our Lord Jesus Christ!

“The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest” (Luke 10:2). 

 

I believe this verse has much application for our lives. The Lord states there is great potential for harvest. 

 

We can be one of the laborers we’ve been instructed to pray for. In verse one, the Lord appointed seventy others and sent them to every city and place where He planned to go. In verse nine the Lord said they were to heal the sick and to declare “the kingdom of God has come near you.”

 

I believe this is a part of the ministry for believers. We want to touch people and let them know God is near to them.

 

Let's help fulfill the mission of the church from Matthew 28:19, 20. We want to be a part of the great army of believers going into all the world. Together we can make possible the harvest the Lord desires to come to pass. May the Lord touch you and answer every prayer of your heart.

God sent His Word - the written and Living Word to heal! "Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching, preaching the good news, and healing every weakness and infirmity among the people" (Matthew 4:23).

 

Psalm 107:20, "He sent His word and healed them and delivered them from their destruction." He is still unlimited, unchanging, and all powerful!


God has not changed His mind about healing. His thoughts and ideas for man are the same. "For I am the Lord, I do not change..." (Malachi 3:6). "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever" (Hebrews 13:8).

 

I love the truth about healing in Exodus 15:26. The Lord declares to His people "He is the Lord that heals." This same message is given in Isaiah 53:4,5 and in 1 Peter 2:24.


Aren't we glad God's truth is still enduring to all generations! This is expressed in Psalm 33:11, "The counsel of the Lord stands forever, and the plans of His heart to all generations."

 

God also states the "authority of His word is settled and established in heaven and His faithfulness endures to all generations" (Psalm 119:89,90). We give thanks we can receive healing and help from the written and the Living Word!
