Will you stand with us in a time of fasting before our Maker?
Shalom brothers and sisters – many have contacted Rhonda and I concerning the injury to my leg and what the doctor’s report is concerning the current condition and prognosis.
Those that know us, know that Rhonda and I are people of faith, and that the doctors (as good as they are at what they do) do not have the last word.
The doctors and staff we met with today at the Wound Center were very thorough and professional, very compassionate and very candid. Short of Divine Intervention, the desired outcome will be long and drawn out and, although a positive expectation was given concerning the eventual recovery from this injury, it was given in the midst of a very ominous process. A precarious surgical procedure is also being considered, but only as a last resort. This is a very serious and limb-threatening, if not life-threatening situation.
Now, with all those facts stated, this one Truth stands – our God is bigger than anything we can encounter. By His stripes we are healed. If He so chooses, He can heal this in an instant. And if He chooses another way, He is still God and we will praise Him. My Bible says My God will not put more on His children than they can bear, and when that seemingly unbearable testing and proving comes, He will provide a way by which we can bear it. He is The God that heals and He alone gets to decide how that healing comes.
We are asking our Creator and Redeemer for a quick, total and miraculous recovery. And if He chooses another way, we are asking for His strength and provision to bear it. For we can do all things through our Messiah Who pours His strength into us.
For this reason, we are asking those that can and will, those that believe in the power of prayer and fasting, to stand with us in a fast this Friday, November 1st. If you wish to notify us of your intent, in an effort to encourage us and others, so be it. If not, our Father hears and knows what is said and done in secret and the left hand does not need to know what the right hand is doing.
May our Father in Heaven bless you and yours in these days – Shalom – J&R
