“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). 

This verse applies to our lives. The Lord states there is a great potential for harvest. 

We can be one of the laborers we have 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.

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

We can be thankful and glad that God's truth still endures 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!


When John the Baptist asked if Jesus was the Coming One, he received an amazing answer. During this time John was in prison for speaking against the sins of King Herod. He sent two of his disciples to Jesus and they returned with a powerful statement.

Jesus answered the question and said, "...Go and show John again those things which you do hear and see: The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them" (Matthew 11:4,5).

We have a beautiful picture of the Life Giver spoken of by Jesus Christ Himself. He always showed He came to earth to give life. "Most assuredly I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life. I am that bread of life" (John 6:47,48).

We must believe His words to cover our life. "...The words that I speak unto you are spirit and they are life" (John 6:63B).
