Judges 2:7 (KJV)
7 And the people served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that outlived Joshua, who had seen all the great works of the LORD, that he did for Israel.

Judges 2:10-12 (KJV)
10 And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel.
11 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim:
12 And they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the people that were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked the LORD to anger.

Yesterday I alluded to these scriptures and the impact is still disturbing my soul today. During Joshua’s lifetime and the other elders, they witnessed miraculous events from the time of the exodus from Egypt to living in Canaan land. The observed the miraculous event of the Lord splitting the waters of the Red Sea and the land beneath being dry so that all Israel could walk through on dry ground and then bringing the waters together again to destroy the army of Pharaoh. How the Lord lead them through the wilderness and feeding all Israel with manna that fell from the heavens, as well as quail and causing water to emerge from a rock. These historical events were being handed down to those of the next generation. Now the time had come when those who witnessed these events had passed on and the only thing that remained were stories surrounding the youth. It wasn’t long until the stories were only folk tales and soon forgotten. The generations were growing up not really knowing who the Lord was and his great works. There is a trend that is becoming more and more prevalent in our day and time that our youth are growing up without a true knowledge of who the Lord is. Join with me in prayer for the younger generation to come into the knowledge of the Lord. Pray that our faith will spark a revival of miracles that the younger generation can witness the mighty works of God. Let the blessings we receive every day open doors of opportunity that our youth can see the great works of the Lord Jesus Christ. Receive your blessings and share with those around you.

John 14:12-14 (KJV)
12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

What are some of things that Jesus did that should raise our confidence to believe?

John 2:    Turned water into wine

Mark 1 and Luke 4:   Demon possessed man is healed

Matthew 8, Mark 1, and Luke 5 & 17:   Leper cleansed (just a note: during that time leprosy was one of the worse diseases. It scarred an individual terribly and eventually brought death. Jesus not only healed the lepers but there was one that returned that Jesus made whole by removing all the scarring)

Matthew 8 and Luke 7:  Centurion’s slave was healed. This miracle of healing was different in that Jesus was not present at the time of healing. The Centurion believed if Jesus just spoke words of healing the young man would be healed and he was.

Matthew 9, Mark 5, and Luke 8:  Afflicted woman was healed. She had a disease for 12 years, went to many physicians but it was not until she believed if she touched the garment of Jesus she could be healed. She was completely healed.

Matthew 9:  Blind were healed. It was not until they cried out to Jesus. He asked them if they believed he could heal their eyes. According to their faith they were healed.

Matthew 14, Mark 6, Luke 9, and John 6:  Five thousand plus were fed with five loaves and two fishes.

Mark 7:  Deaf man was healed who could not hear nor speak.

John 11:  Raised Lazarus from the dead on the fourth day. (It is significant because in that period of time it was believed that someone could come back to life in three days but after that it was impossible.)

Luke 14:  Man with dropsy (swollen in the joints) was healed

There are more miracles that are found in the gospels that I have not mentioned. I just mentioned a few so that you can familiarize yourself with some of the miracles of healing to build your faith. According to your faith. Lord help us to believe your words, “greater works than these shall he do” and that whatsoever we ask in your name Jesus will be done.  Lord bless your people by sweeping through our land the revival of faith to believe in the miraculous. Receive your blessing today.

Psalm 95:6 (KJV)
6 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.

Psalm 132:7 (KJV)
7 We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.

Acts 7:32-33 (KJV)
32 Saying, I am the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold.
33 Then said the Lord to him, Put off thy shoes from thy feet: for the place where thou standest is holy ground.

Kneeling in prayer has always been symbolic of being humble before the Lord. Submitting yourself to the Lord with meekness as you give your petitions to the Lord. Today many will be entering the tabernacle (most commonly called in our current vernacular “church”) to go through the motions of a Sunday Service. Would it not be a great outpouring of His Spirit if everyone with one mind and one accord would go into the house of the Lord with a humble heart and bow down and begin worshiping the Lord. Many times, the saints get caught up in the traditional rut of greeting one another, catching up on the lives of their fellow saint. Then it is time to sit in the same spot you always sit and the audacity if anyone should sit in your spot. Listen to the music if anyone is playing something until the service begins. Sometimes the service opens with a prayer or a song. Then maybe sometime during the service some begin to feel the moving of the Lord. Then it is time to hear the preaching and if there is an altar call, walk to the front. Worship for a little while and then visit some more and go home. I forgot, some church folks go out to eat and then go home and nap, but nothing has changed. Does that sound like your Sunday morning routine? What would happen if a very important celebrity would walk through the church doors? Everyone would be beside their selves hoping to meet and greet this famous individual. Then while the dismissal is being said, dialing on their phones to tell everyone they know who they just shook hands with. Am I right? The greatest celebrity that ever lived is the Lord Jesus Christ and He is waiting to greet each and every one that decides to bow in His presence and worship. He is the visible of the invisible God who created the heavens and the earth. Who is so powerful that just by the spoken word the creation that is around us was formed. The Psalmist spoke of going into the tabernacle to worship at his footstool. Footstool in its unique translation means the place where the Lord stamps or walks. In the root of the word is buried the meaning to be a table bearer or servant. So, wherever you choose to kneel to worship the Lord, keep in mind you are on holy ground because the Lord is walking around. While you are worshiping, the Lord is ministering or serving your needs. What would you choose? Routine with little or no change or an outpouring where the Lord meets “all” your needs? The Lord wants to serve you with so many blessings. Worship with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength and receive the blessings of the Lord to change your life.
