Philippians   4:10-20. 

 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

In September of last year I was diagnosed with an extremely early case of prostate cancer.  I shrugged and asked what do we do now?  The doctor gave me all of my options.  I had a nurse from the insurance company join me in the Docs. Office incase I missed any questions that should have been asked.  I nailed every one.  At first I took until right after thanksgiving to make the decision.  I had decided on radio active beads.  I had no peace with that choice.  One week before we were to proceed I called the doc and told him I was having second thoughts.  Instead of talking with me about it he canceled the procedure.  That was back in late January.  I spent the next several months trying to figure out what Father wanted me to do.  Then I received a call from my radiologist Troy Adolfson.  I had had prayer several times, I felt like I had been cured.  Troy sat with me for a couple of hours a couple of times as we tried to figure this whole thing out.  Now keep in mind Father does not just look at the needs of one person, he has several hundred people in one location at one time who need to have their needs met.  Our Father is the great coordinator. Fast forward to Thursday of this week, Troy and I had agreed that if my p.s.h. level were 3.0 or lower we would accept the miracle for what it was.  He called me the day of my first treatment to set the blood test.  I had the blood test done at 9:30 A.M to confirm or prove that Father had done a miracle.  But before Troy hung up he made what I consider a spirit inspired statement.

“What if the Miracle is you being here?” Troy said.  That hit me like a ton of bricks.  As it turns out Father keeps dropping people in front of me to pray with.  Yesterday with an expectant mother, Today with a woman in her late 30s or early 40s,  When I walked out  of the procedure room she was in the waiting room putting a puzzle together.  She made the statement that she probably would not see the puzzle finished, not because she would die, but because she was going home.  We were able to pray together for a few moments.  I could see by the fire in her blue eyes that she had been touched.  God had met a need in her by using me.  He touched her heart when we prayed together.  The lesson today is Father does meet all of our need according to his riches.  We are a major part of his riches. We are his prized creation.  Father through the Son paid a great price for our redemption.  So because we are part of his riches, he uses us to a great extent to meet the needs of others.  He uses the places we are put to meet the needs of his body on this earth.  So here is the bottom line of the whole thing.  Be open to working to meet the needs of those Father brings across your path.  Don’t worry about accomplishing what he has put before you, but remember you can do all things through Christ who give you strength.

Go in peace
