In 40 Day Prayer book there is an instruction passage which really catch my eyes. Putting into practice: We don’t just want to be hearers of the Word; we also need to be doers of the Word(James 1:22) When I hear it/learn it, If I do it/ practice it, then I can share it/ spread it. Then pretty soon we (2-3 people) hear it/learn it, we do it/ practice it and we share it/ spread it.
Last Sunday in PD’s sermon he quoted : James 4: 8a Come near to God and he will come near to you. This verse reminded me of my live experience and breakthrough. Early this year I learned “Prayer for the Presence “ from our prayer retreat last CSOM semester. “Our Father who dwells in the highest heavens and in our hearts. We draw near to you in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Draw near to us now in the presence of the Holy Spirit.” During stay-home order I started to practice it — daily soaking in the Lord’s presence through prophetic worshipping & prayer and daily waiting upon the Lord(silence of Sonship in front of the Lord). I felt good, then I shared with my friend. My friend shared with her friend. Finally my friend’s friend and me had chance to share and practice together over the phone. Guess what happed? She got healed from shoulder pain and she slept very well like a baby that very night! Wow we experienced His healing power without even asking! This verse becomes such a truth and reality to me! Come on, let’s be good learners, and let’s be faithful doers! Spread the goodness of our Lord! Praise the Lord!
