Do You Believe God Can Heal today???

Where to begin? Several years ago, the Lord showed me that the healing we saw in the bible is real today, that He still performs miracles. Some lady I didn't even know, at that time, approached me and told me she had a dream about me. I was kind of startled and thought she must of been talking with someone else behind me? I looked around and there was no one there. She told me the dream was about God giving me the gift of healing and that I would pray for folks and see healing actually happen. I didn't know much about the "gift of healing" at that point but God put people in front of me that could teach me.. and what I learned was to just listen to God still small voice and hear what and who He wanted to touch. His desire is to heal, His desire is that no one suffer. He loves us all and He uses those who are willing vessels to bring healing to others. Do you want to be healed?

A couple of years ago, I met Lee and Doris Harms. They came to our church during a conference and had a breakout session on Healing. I saw many who were healed just by simple prayer and two humble vessels. My husband and I went out to where they practice their healing ministry and my husbands back pain was healed that night. Below is more information about them and I highly recommend you visiting them sometime. Just believe! Nothing is impossible with God!

Heartland Healing Rooms provide prayer ministry to those physically or emotionally ill who seek a touch from the living, loving Lord Jesus Christ. Ministry is conducted by a small team of two or three trained persons who minister to the sick under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Heartland Healing Rooms is under the direction of Doris and Lee Harms who have over 30 years experience, national and international, in ministering healing and deliverance. Heartland Healing Rooms are open each Tuesday evening from 7 until 8:30 at 401 NE Chipman Road (use the north entrance of Christ Triumphant Church) in Lee's Summit. An appointment is not needed and the prayer ministry is free of charge. Donations are accepted and are tax deductible. The healing rooms have been operating since 2002 and have many recorded testimonies including A couple of testimonies given below.

Michael – I came to prayer with a headache; I have had them daily for at least one year. The headache is now gone (after prayer). The team also prayed for my back. I feel like something happened there and my arms feel very relaxed, almost like rubber. Thank you, Lord and team.

Linda – I received prayer for my back; I was in the habit of getting it adjusted about once a week to relieve the pain. After prayer I did not get an adjustment for a couple of months. Since I hadn’t been in for awhile, I decided to go back to my chiropractor. I was told I was fine and didn’t need an adjustment.

Matt – This young man got into an altercation while defending a friend; the result was a fracture in his hand and a very large separation from the wrist and lower arm. His mother coaxed him into coming in for prayer; today she writes: “We went to the hospital downtown today to see if Matt needed surgery, and after 3 x-rays, she said all Matt had was a sprain. What stress relieving news!” 12-3-09

12 yr old – His mother brought him to the healing rooms for ministry as he had been having problems with fear. During ministry, he had a vision of a spirit in his closet at home that was screaming and being pulled down to hell. He felt something get pulled off of him. His mother tells us, “my son feels and acts like he used to.” PTL. 4-22-09

Jeff – He called to say that he had been freed from his asthma for several months. After prayer at the healing rooms he was able to discontinue his medication and did not need to use his inhaler. 4-28-09

If you are wanting a healing touch from the Lord, I encourage you to visit the Heartland Healing Rooms.

This is a post from Vern Cushberry of Cush Capital Management LLC. More information about him at the bottom of this post.

I met with Vern a few weeks ago as we continue to run into each other at different venues. All of the venues were places that we could grow deeper in our faith with the Lord and network with individuals who have God at the forefront of their lives, their business and their relationships. Vern shared with me an article from his last newsletter and it hit home. I have been reading and meditating on a book, "Humility", by Andrew Murray. So when I saw this article in his newsletter, I asked him I could reprint it for my readers. Of course, he said yes and here it is for you.

"I’d like to share a beautiful prayer written by Rafael Cardinal Merry del Val (1865-1930), Cardinal Secretary of State of the Holy See under Pope Saint Pius X.

Litany of Humility
O Jesus! meek and humble of heart, hear me.
From the desire of being esteemed, deliver me,
From the desire of being loved, deliver me,
From the desire of being extolled, deliver me,
From the desire of being honored, deliver me,
From the desire of being praised, deliver me,
From the desire of being preferred, deliver me,
From the desire of being consulted, deliver me,
From the desire of being approved, deliver me,
From the fear of being humiliated, deliver me, O Jesus.
From the fear of being despised,
From the fear of suffering rebukes,
From the fear of being calumniated,
From the fear of being forgotten,
From the fear of being ridiculed,
From the fear of being wronged,
From the fear of being suspected,
That others may be loved more than I, O Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
That others may be esteemed more than I,
That, in the opinion of the world, others may, increase and I may decrease,
That others may be chosen and I set aside,
That others may be praised and I unnoticed,
That others may be preferred to me in everything,
That others may become holier than I, provided that I may become as holy as I should, O Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.

A word of caution: praying this prayer can result in severe injury to the human ego. Humility is said to be the foundation of the spiritual edifice and inferior only to faith. However, humility is considered the first virtue inasmuch as it removes the obstacles to faith (e.g., pride), and makes a man a fit recipient of grace. According to the words of St. James, "God resisteth the proud, and giveth his grace to the humble" (James 4:6). The eternal benefits are found throughout scripture including Matthew 5:5 – “The meek shall inherit the earth.” But there is another reason I ask for humility this year. I know from practical experience that portfolio managers who practice with humility also tend to have a better understanding of the risks they are taking on behalf of clients.

Pride leads to disgrace*, but with humility comes wisdom – Proverbs 11:2
* e.g. AIG, Lehman, Bear Stearns, et. al.
Overconfidence has led to the downfall of many brilliant Wall-Streeters. Indeed, one truth about money management is this: certainty sells. False promises and baseless predictions have enriched many portfolio managers and bankrupted many clients. It’s unfortunate we are often drawn to those who eschew humility.
“Early in life I had to choose between honest arrogance and hypocritical humility. I chose the former and have seen no reason to change.” – Frank Lloyd Wright
While arrogance can be attractive, it usually proves to be a fatal flaw in this industry. That is why this Christmas I am asking God for humility. By recognizing my shortcomings I am less likely to take undue risks. It sounds paradoxical, but because I recognize the possibility that an individual investment will fail, our portfolio is actually more likely to succeed. We strive to emulate a select handful of our peers who do this well. Consider the following from famous value investor Seth Klarman:
“Every day, every investor squints into the murkiness of present-day ambiguity and an unknowable future and has to make decisions. Even when these decisions are made for the right reason-not based on greed, not under undue pressure, not from intellectually dishonest motives, but because the investments appear sound and secure - much can still go wrong . . . our performance in the years ahead"

My last post had a scripture verse in about humility - 2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. I pray that Americans will rise up and learn the art of humility, so that God will save our land!
