#317 Seven Verses of Healing Prayer

I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

Count your way to wisdom in number three hundred seventeen of this series, Seven Verses of Healing Prayer.

I wrote a small book on prayer and healing. The book, Healing Prayers of Faith, can be read for free on my website forthefathersministry.com. Scripture that speak of prayers of faith and healing are found many times in the Bible. But, no amount of prayer and no amount of faith guarantees healing for that is left in the hands of God. The Bible does tell us that prayer and faith have a great impact on healing.

Seven Verses of Healing Prayer:

  1. Ps 6:2, Be gracious to Me, O Lord, for I am languishing; heal Me, O Lord, for my bones are troubled.
  2. Je 17:14, Heal Me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save Me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise.
  3. Ps 118:17, I shall not die, but I shall live, and recount the deeds of the Lord.
  4. Ps 118:25, Save Me, I pray, O Lord! O Lord, I pray, give Me success!
  5. Nu 12:13, And I cry to the Lord, “O God, please heal Me —please.”
  6. Ps 41:4, As for me, I said, “O Lord, be gracious to me; heal me, for I have sinned against you!”
  7. Ps 30:2, O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me.

I hope you noticed how personal these verses are. Each verse uses the words “I” and “me”. Failing health is a part of this fallen world, but Jesus Christ came to overcome this world and overcome our wounds physical and spiritual.

I am Fred Myers, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.

#316 Five Things About the Outer Darkness

I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

Count your way to wisdom in number three hundred sixteen of this series, Five Things About the Outer Darkness.

I wrote this poem to help you focus on the importance of recognizing the good of God.

Good goes with God and the light leaves with the Lord

The Holy Spirit restrains today but how much will God afford

Heaven has no need for sun or moon, His glory is the light

Stubborn stands in outer darkness gnashing, weeping in the night

 

Five Things About the Outer Darkness:

  1. The outer darkness will be the continual dwelling place of the worthless servant.
  2. In the outer darkness there is continual weeping.
  3. In the outer darkness there is continual gnashing of teeth.
  4. Many Jews will be cast into the outer darkness as well as Gentiles.
  5. Those in the outer darkness will be bound hand and foot.

Do not be standing in rebellion when the good of God is gone. One day good will be gone. When Christ returns, good goes with God. If you are in Christ, you go with good, if not, you will never see good again. Repent of rebellion and turn to the good of God.

I am Fred Myers, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding. 

Mt 25:30 And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

Mt 8:11 I tell you, many will come from east and west and recline at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, Mt 8:12 while the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

Mt 22:13 Then the king said to the attendants, ‘Bind him hand and foot and cast him into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

#315 Seven Reasons to Enjoy the Bible

I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

Count your way to wisdom in number three hundred fifteen of this series, Seven Reasons to Enjoy the Bible.

I often hear people say that they get sleepy when they read the Bible. Yes, the Bible does take a certain amount of concentrated study. But, God was gracious to provide so many things for our study, our life, and our blessings. If you are a Christian that does not study the Bible, I know your life is not the life God planned for you. These seven are the things God wants for you found in His word.

Seven Reasons to Enjoy the Bible:

  1. The law is perfect reviving the soul.
  2. The testimony is sure making wise.
  3. The precepts are right rejoicing the heart.
  4. The commandment is pure enlightening the eyes.
  5. The fear is clean enduring forever.
  6. The rules are true and righteous to be desired.
  7. The word is living and active, discerning thoughts and intentions.

God’s word is truth to enjoy. More importantly God’s word is actively watching over you. The Holy Spirit is waiting to teach you every good thing from God.

I am Fred Myers, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding. 

Ps 19:7 The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; Ps 19:8 the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; Ps 19:9 the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether.

Heb 4:12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

Three Paradigm Shifts for Faith

#314 Three Paradigm Shifts for Faith

I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

Count your way to wisdom in number three hundred fourteen of this series, Three Paradigm Shifts for Faith.

To mature in Christ there are three paradigm shifts that must take place. These are the results if the new man, spoken of in the Bible, is a new man. These three are also a good way to see how much progress you are making in Christian maturity. Peter said to be diligent to confirm our calling and election.

 

2 Pe 1:9 For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins. 2 Pe 1:10 Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to confirm your calling and election, for if you practice these qualities you will never fall.

 

Three Paradigm Shifts for Faith:

 

  1. Know the Truth: Know God is Truth and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
  2. Believe the Truth: Believe all of scripture as Truth, not just the part you like.
  3. Apply the Truth: Trust God so much that you will apply Truth to your life every day.

 

Paul said he fed some of the Christians of his day on milk because they were not ready for in-depth teaching.

1 Co 3:2 I fed you with milk, not solid food, for you were not ready for it. And even now you are not yet ready,

Turn to God’s word and be ready to learn the full word of God and apply it to your life. How many things do you stand for and agree with that stands against God’s word. Today learn God’s word and be blessed.

 

I am Fred Myers, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding. 

2 Th 2:13 But we ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the firstfruits to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth.

1 Jn 5:9 If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater, for this is the testimony of God that he has borne concerning his Son. 1 Jn 5:10 Whoever believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself. Whoever does not believe God has made him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has borne concerning his Son. 1 Jn 5:11 And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 1 Jn 5:12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.

1 Jn 3:18 Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth. 1 Jn 3:19 By this we shall know that we are of the truth and reassure our heart before him

1 Pe 1:22 Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart,

2 Co 4:16 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.

1 Co 2:10 these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God.

2 Pe 1:5 For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, 2 Pe 1:6 and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, 2 Pe 1:7 and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. 2 Pe 1:8 For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Pe 1:9 For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins. 2 Pe 1:10 Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to confirm your calling and election, for if you practice these qualities you will never fall. 2 Pe 1:11 For in this way there will be richly provided for you an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 2 Pe 1:12 Therefore I intend always to remind you of these qualities, though you know them and are established in the truth that you have.

Three Steps to Carving a Character

#313 Three Steps to Carving a Character

I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

Count your way to wisdom in number three hundred thirteen of this series, Three Steps to Carving a Character.

Out of your vocabulary you will carve a message about yourself because character starts with your everyday language. Your character is made up of three fundamental biblical choices.

The Book of Hosea states that they became detestable like the thing they loved.

Ho 9:10 Like grapes in the wilderness, I found Israel. Like the first fruit on the fig tree in its first season, I saw your fathers. But they came to Baal-peor and consecrated themselves to the thing of shame, and became detestable like the thing they loved.

The Bible is clear we become like the thing we love.

Three Steps to Carving a Character:

  1. Vocabulary: What do you think and speak about the most. What you speak is how you think: your character is carved out of your vocabulary whether biblical or worldly.
  2. Motivation: What do you love the most? What is your motivation? To seek God or seek the world? I learned a long time ago that there is no such thing as an unmotivated person. Everyone is motivated by something. Some are even so motivated that they will endure any hardship and accept any loss for sinful pursuits.
  3. Security: What do you fear the most? Everyone wants security. What do you hold most dear? The protection of your body or your soul?

Whatever you think you say and do, whatever you love you pursue, and whatever you value will carve your character and will determine your destiny. Today dedicate every thought, word and deed to God and be blessed for eternity.

I am Fred Myers, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding. 

2 Co 10:5 We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ

Mk 7:21 For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, Mk 7:22 coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. Mk 7:23 All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.”

Jn 12:25 Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.

Eph 2:2 in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience

Mt 10:28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
