As we were thinking about this week’s update, “covering, healing, praise” came to mind. He is the Lord and worthy of all of our praises, in every circumstance. The staff at Global Advance, many of our supporters, and even right here in our IC have been afflicted with infirmity after infirmity. We KNOW our God is Healer, He is our Covering, and we will continue to praise Him in all things. As you read the selection of Scriptures from Psalms 147, please apply them to your prayers for Global Advance and for yourselves. We trust as you read, ponder, and pray that the Holy Spirit will bring to your remembrance very specific things to pray for. When this happens please share it with us on GroupMe. Write the Scripture and the revelation so we can join you in the celebration of Him revealing His Truth and Power.
John and Lisa
1 Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God; for it is pleasant, and a song of praise is fitting.
3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
5 Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; His understanding is beyond measure.
8 He covers the heavens with clouds; He prepares rain for the earth; He makes grass grow on the hills.
10 His delight is not in the strength of the horse, nor His pleasure in the legs of a man, 11 but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him, in those who hope in His steadfast love.
12 Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem! Praise your God, O Zion! 13 For He strengthens the bars of your gates; He blesses your children within you.14 He makes peace in your borders; He fills you with the finest of the wheat.15 He sends out His command to the earth; His word runs swiftly.
