Ryan’s Miracle Watch 4/6/20

Ryan’s been spiking a temp on and off for over the past couple of days. All his other vitals seem normal, except for a slightly high pulse every 4-5 hours. We’ve seen this before, especially when the weather changes; which it has the past few days with moderate to heavy rain and cold. And, he typically pulls through after a day or two. Please pray his fever breaks and pulse gets back to normal, so he can get a good night’s rest, and for peace for his parents…

1 Peter 5:7   Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

Psalm 29:11   The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.

FEAR NOT!

Did you know that “Fear not” appears 365 times in the Bible? That’s one “fear not” for every day of the year. That’s right! The entire year is covered.

1 Peter 5:6-7   Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.  Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

Psalm 91:9-10   If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.

Please say it with us…”The Lord is my refuge.”

RELISH   noun:   spicy or savory condiment used on hot dogs, etc.

No, not that definition! Sorry about that.

verb:   derive or receive pleasure from; get enjoyment from; take pleasure in…

Better…

So, being stuck at home during the shelter-in-place (SIP) initiative has definitely got me missing certain things; going out to eat, working out at the gym, hugging people (no, not random people). What can I say? I’m a hugger.

On the flip side, it’s gotten me to realize what things I don’t need; things I don’t miss. Too many things to list here.

I’m going to make a list of things I RELISH and want to get back to once this SIP is lifted, as well as things I don’t relish. Think of it as a sort of Spring cleaning. Hey, it’s Spring! How appropriate…

Speaking of cleaning: I really enjoy cleaning Ryan’s room daily. It’s the least I can do for someone who’s done so much more for me…

1 Peter 5:8-9   Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.

The next several weeks (basically April) will be the most challenging our entire Nation has faced in a long, long time. There’s always been a spiritual battle going on between good and evil; God and Satan.  The Coronavirus is just another satanic attempt to destroy our faith in God…to lure us away from Him…to take our eye off the mark. Just so you know, God’s kicking Satan’s you know what. In the end, God will be victorious and, therefore, we also will be. Therefore, don’t worry…but pray. Pray like you never have before. This is how we keep in contact with our Father in Heaven. We need to pray that He will put a cloak of protection over us, and to immediately provide a cure/vaccination for this disease. Until one is found, this virus will continue to ravage the world at large.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5   For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

Ephesians 6:11-17   Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Ryan and I will be on our knees, and would love for you to join us…
