Good morning! December 24th and it has been quite a whirlwind of a 2 1/2 months! Let's list what's been going on: Oct 7th - Had a C-section & invited Trinity Faith McCart into the world, packed our house up... Nov 22nd closed on our house and began moving, Nov 26th completely out of our old house & everything in new house, Nov 26th - left for vacation!!! (ahhh can u believe it, can u imagine the mess we left of boxes!), Dec 1st - returned to our new home, Dec 17-18 - traveled to Georgia for Christmas with in-laws, Monday Dec 19th - had knee surgery.... on crutches.
Whew!!! Could we have any more life events?! I'd rather not!!! Still unpacking, obviously... lots to do for awhile... but ANYWAYS.....
Today... is more or less a journal entry. I'm in the Word this morning and thought I'd share how I'm using it for me! Maybe it will help you in your situation. Knee surgery went well, and as I believed going into it, I'm going to have a VERY speedy recovery! Despite some of the things the Doctor said... I am choosing to believe the report that GOD has for my knee! Since He is the ALMIGHTY Jehovah Rapha, God our Healer... I'm believing for a completely healed knee, as HE created it to be!
I began digging into scripture to back what I'm believing.
- Isaiah 46:10 - Declaring the end AND the result from the beginning!!!
- MY KNEE FUNCTIONS PERFECTLY, WITHOUT PAIN!
- Isaiah 40:31 - Those who WAIT on the Lord... they shall RUN & NOT grow weary, they shall walk & not faint or become weary.
- I WILL RUN and not grow weary. My JOINTS, muscles, bones, cartilage WILL NOT grow weary! My body operates in PERFECTION to how God created it to function!
- Isaiah 41:3 - He pursues them & passes safely & unhindered, even by a way his feet had not trod & SO SWIFTLY that his feet do not even touch the ground!
- Now THAT is fast!!! I will not only run, but I will run FAST!!
- Proverbs 4:12b - ...when you run, you shall not stumble.
- I will RUN safely, preventing any injuries. Wherever my feet trod I will be safe!
- Isaiah 58:8 - Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your healing (your restoration and the power of a new life) shall spring forth speedily; your righteousness (your rightness, your justice, and your right relationship with God) shall go before you [conducting you to peace and prosperity], and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
- MY healing springs forth SPEEDILY! The WORD says it!!! I believe it! My KNEE is healed & without pain!
Word application! How we use the Word for ANY situation! Find a scripture or 2 or 3 for WHATEVER the situation, STAND ON IT, believe it, confess it!
Have a blessed Christmas & Happy New Year! Praise the LORD for God sending JESUS to die so that TODAY we may live! Despite our past mistakes, failures, times we've fallen short, said the wrong thing, done the wrong thing, lied, cheated, hurt someone.... JESUS CHOSE to die so that we could have life! Thank you God for the birth of Your Son & being willing to give Him up so that we could have ETERNAL LIFE!
