I will be giving my testimony on prayer at the Spiritual Life Center Healing Service on June 23rd.
Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these parables, that He departed from there. And when He had come to His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, "Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works? Matthew 13:53-54 (NKJV)
Jesus, please help us recognize where you get your teaching from.
Is this not the carpenter's son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas? And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?" Matthew 13:5- (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, please help us move from knowing about Jesus to knowing Jesus.
So they were offended at Him. But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house." Matthew 13:53-58 (NKJV)
Father, please help us repent of being offended by what Jesus says and does.
Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief. Matthew 13:58 (NKJV)
Lord, our unbelief can hinder what you want to do among us. Bring us to a living faith in you Jesus.
A Word Received: What are you waiting for? Are you waiting on me (Acts 1:4), or are you waiting on the world?
