Jesus Always Restores

A Truth to Live – People who depend on their own works to earn a “place” with God always fall short. But Jesus always looks beyond religious rituals to find willing hearts that are open to His intervention and miraculous touch.

Scripture – “Jesus went into the synagogue, and a man with a shriveled hand was there. [The Pharisees] asked, ‘is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?’  He said to them, ‘It is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.’ He said to the man, ‘Stretch out your hand.’ So he stretched it out and it was completely restored, just as sound as the other.”  Matthew 12:9-14

Prayer – Heavenly Father, I am grateful that You are a healer. Help me to push beyond my own self-imposed rules and obey and follow You. I know that I will find healing when I obey Your Word.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
