GOD WILL STRETCH HIS HANDS WHEN WE LIFT OUR HANDS

DECEMBER 1, 2022 / DAY 4#

TODAY’S RHEMA

Psalm 28:2 Hear the voice of my supplications When I cry to You, When I lift up my hands toward Your holy sanctuary

When changing clothes one day, Wina checked a lump in her left breast. She felt it getting bigger and firmer, and she had needle-pricked pain when she touched it. She and her husband rushed to the hospital to get it diagnosed. The doctor was shocked and wondered why they were so late to come to him. The doctor claimed that Wina had invasive breast cancer, which was already in the final phase.

The doctor’s statement froze Wilna’s heart. But she realized immediately that everything is in God’s hands, including life and death. She knew she got the disease by God’s will, so she needed to comprehend God’s plan and refuse to blame Him for things in her life. In her prayers, Wilna surrendered her life to God’s control. She strengthened her faith and felt peace in her heart instead of being afraid. After a series of chemotherapy and operation, the doctor said nothing serious was left, and her condition would be well maintained with chemotherapies.

We must acknowledge that God’s grace will descend upon us when we lift our hands before Him. Love and grace will be activated whenever we feel hopeless and things seem beyond our strength. Regardless of our situation, if our eyes are focused on God and our hearts cling to Him, grace will always manifest. The abundant grace of God will save us right on time. Jesus blesses all of us.
