Strengthening The Churches

36 Then after some days Paul said to Barnabas, “Let us now go back and visit our brethren in every city where we have preached the word of the Lord, and see how they are doing.” (…) 40 but Paul chose Silas and departed, being commended by the brethren to the grace of God. 41 And he went through Syria and Cilicia, strengthening the churches.” Acts 15:36, 40-41

This speaks so much to me! This is the passion of my heart. Strengthening the churches. So people can have a spiritual home and family, have community, grow as believers, know what belongs to them through the finished work of Jesus, equip them for ministry etc.

A Lot Of People Have Been Praying For Me

praying for me

Once I met someone who was going through a very difficult time. She was struggling with suicidal thoughts, as she couldn’t see the meaning of life. Among other things, I shared with her about how much Jesus loves her, and I encouraged her to spend time in the Word. I prayed for her, and we agreed to meet the following week. – And when I met her again, she was totally changed. She was all smiles! She was enjoying life and found such joy spending time in the Word. I was amazed and asked her: “What happened?” After a few moments of pondering, she said: “I know a lot of people have been praying for me.” – I thought that was so profound, and was reminded of the power of prayer afresh.

Isaiah 55:11
“So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
it shall not return to Me void,
but it shall accomplish what I please,
and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”

In the early church, whenever the Word of God was preached,
there were miracles of salvation, healings, and other signs and wonders.
The demon-possessed were set free. The paralyzed jumped up and walked.
People received their loved ones back from the dead.

(From Joseph Prince Devotional)
