IF:EQUIP Day 9 and 10

IF:EQUIP Day 9

Read John 4:43-54
If you believe this is true:
  • What does this mean about God?
God makes good on God's word. Christ did not have to be physically present to command healing. God knows that we desire to see "signs and wonders" and has granted them, however they are not necessary for faith to occur.
  • What does this mean about you?
I am heard by God, important enough to be listened to by God. There are so many times I feel that my issues are too small to lay before the Lord. But God does hear God's children.
  • What does this mean about the world?
God is concerned about healing and wholeness. There is no place where God's hope and help will not reach. Why do we act as if we are above or below God's love and understanding?

IF:EQUIP Day 10

Read John 5:1-15
If you believe this is true:
  • What does this mean about God?
God is seeking us out. All broken and wounded individuals God seeks to restore. Christ cared enough to go to the sick those in need. God loved too much to let the man stay in his illness. God pushes past our excuses and allows us to see opportunities to be made well.
  • What does this mean about you?
How am I going to the sick and needy? Where am I offering hope and healing? Words are not all, action is important as well. Where am I in need of Jesus' healing? Where am I too busy giving excuses to allow healing to occur? How am I reliant upon others for healing?
  • What does this mean about the world?
Too often we let others keep us from wholeness. And when we are healed we have a hard time getting on with our lives! There is so much more available to us if we would get up and walk!
