Each miracle of healing was motivated by Jesus heart- felt connection to the experience of the one who suffered.

We are experiencing the release of ‘Barabbas’ through Jesus willingness to bear his sentence of death and the restoration of our relationship with the Shepherd and Guardian of our life.
When I say my foot has slipped Even when we see ourselves wavering, and on the brink of imbalance, the LORD is faithful. Our perception and judgment about our weaknesses does not deter His desire to deliver us. Our perceptions and judgments can, however, keep us miserable.
We have inherited patterns and tendencies to live “an empty way of life.” (Like crying over spilt milk or kicking the flat tire.) But we were redeemed from this way of life by the precious blood of Christ.
For the Christian it takes a practiced coordination and discipline of memory and mastery of thought through the resilient power of the holy Spirit and the life he has begotten in us.
Jesus sent his disciples away, into the boat. He sent them away from the secure land where he had worked great miracles to journey alone.
Very early in the morning, before it was light, a few of the disciples sighted something a short distance from their boat. Through the fury of the wind and spray of the waves they thought they saw a figure approaching them on the restless waters. The figure was passing a few feet from their boat.
We can get stuck over an opportunity lost, or in some failure. Or we can feel the feeling of regret and sorrow, accept what is, claim forgiveness and cleansing and go forward.
The cup is not just any cup of experience. It is “the cup which the Father has given me.” The experience has gone through the loving and wise permission and overruling of our Heavenly Father. A cup has been given to each of us. These experiences are specially overruled so that the will of God can be fulfilled in our life to His glory.
We all have our opinions and we all think they are right, like the Country Western song with the words, “That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!” We want to stand for truth. Yet at times we may be standing for our opinion. At times we may be more focused on proving our view to be right rather than to investigate the scriptures to see what is true.
