Today's Good News

APRIL 15 – FOCUS

04/15                  Matthew 9:27-31

After Jesus left the girl’s home, two blind men followed along behind him, shouting, “Son of David, have mercy on us!” 28 They went right into the house where he was staying, and Jesus asked them, “Do you believe I can make you see?” “Yes, Lord,” they told him, “we do.” 29 Then he touched their eyes and said, “Because of your faith, it will happen.” 30 Then their eyes were opened, and they could see! Jesus sternly warned them, “Don’t tell anyone about this.” 31 But instead, they went out and spread his fame all over the region.

FOCUS

Jesus wanted the blind me to focus on the Father.  It was the power of God that healed them.  As you live your life and the Lord sends healing your way or solves a problem you are facing by miraculous fixing the situation remember to keep the focus on the Lord-praise Him not the situation change.  Praise the Lord.

 

04/16                  Matthew 9:32-34

When they left, a demon-possessed man who couldn’t speak was brought to Jesus. 33 So Jesus cast out the demon, and then the man began to speak. The crowds were amazed. “Nothing like this has ever happened in Israel!” they exclaimed. 34 But the Pharisees said, “He can cast out demons because he is empowered by the prince of demons.”

SEE

Make sure that you see the truth.  Jesus was the truth.  The world is the lie.  The Lord is seeking you.  He is seeking your best good.  Bend your knee to Jesus and let Him give you the wisdom, mercy, grace and understanding you need each day. 

 

04/17                  Matthew 9:35-38

Jesus traveled through all the towns and villages of that area, teaching in the synagogues and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom. And he healed every kind of disease and illness. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 He said to his disciples, “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. 38 So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.”

WORKERS

We need workers in the field extolling what Jesus is doing in their life.  We cannot change the world by condemning it.  We change the world when we change ourselves.  As we become more like Jesus we will busy about our Lord’s business.  Tell everyone about what Jesus is doing in your life.
