Faith!


 Rom 4:18  Who without reason for hope, in faith went on hoping, so that he became the father of a number of nations, as it had been said, So will your seed be.

19 And not being feeble in faith though his body seemed to him little better than dead (he being about a hundred years old) and Sarah was no longer able to have children:

20  Still, he did not give up faith in the undertaking of God, but was made strong by faith, giving glory to God,

21  And being certain that God was able to keep his word.

This is Dennis. He is twelve. Dennis was born with hydrocephalus. This is a medical condition in which there is an abnormal buildup of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain.

Dennis is incapacitated, his head the size of a watermelon.

Most of the time he is not conscious, but still senses the pain.  I’ve seen him  wince.

Dennis and his mom live in Nicaragua. We have visited them twice. They dwell in poverty and are helpless to obtain required medical attention

But was impresses me is the faith of his mom. I believe her name is Isabel.

For twelve years Isabel has knocked relentlessly on heavens doors appealing God for a miracle.

Her faith has not weakened. Her gratefulness to God astounds me.

The love for a son that cannot respond back such a long time can only be that of God’s.

I post these photos not just for you the reader, but in hope that someone who has the means will be moved to help Isabel and Dennis.

Shalom!

You Are a Dispenser of God’s Medicine


1 Cor 12:9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
the gifts of healing – “ Charismata iamaton”

The more powerful word for healing in the NT is the word “iaomai”. Apart from a gradual healing this word talks more about a cure.

In 1Cor 12:9 Paul uses the word “iamaton” which only appears three times in the Bible. “Iamaton” is a noun and instead of dealing with the curing of a person as a verb, it basically describes the medicine (noun) that effected the cure.

When you are praying for people realize that when the Lord uses you in healing you are dispensing through your hands the medicines of God to effect the cure. It’s all a matter of faith.

When you are operating in the gifts of cures or “curing medicines” you must work in a faith level to know that the person will be cured because you are releasing the perfect spiritual medicine.
