The Healing Hand of God

"14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and
let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:"
James 5:14 KJV

Early Tuesday afternoon I began feeling like I was coming down with a stomach bug.  By evening, I was in full blown 'sick' mode.  All day Wednesday I was dying, so I thought.  I called my parents to pray.  I called my accountability partners to pray.  I called my daughter to pray.  Now, it's Thursday and I woke up feeling wonderful.  Thank you, Jesus.

I know that there are times when we will be sick or whatever, but the Word of God says in those times to call someone...let them pray for you...anoint you.  I don't know about you but I don't like being sick.  It's hard enough to get through the days in this world.  Why let sickness hinder us?  So...if you are what the Word tells us to do.  Call for the elders of the someone...let them pray for you and if they are close enough where they can, let them anoint you with oil in the name of the Lord!  

This stomach bug robbed me of an entire day and a half...but that's all it got.  
Thank You, Lord, for Your healing hand!!
