The Glory of God Through Us

For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.  (2 Corinthians 1:20)

 Recommended reading: 2 Corinthians 1.

 Russell Kelso Carter was an athlete, rancher, educator, preacher and physician. He was surrounded by Christian influences since his birth in Baltimore.  He wondered from the truth as a school boy until age 15, when under the influence of the cadet prayer-meeting he made a profession of faith in Jesus. But he made a mistake, he did not forsake is old companions and an up-and-down experience for 14 years. He was on the verge of death from his chronically diseased heart. He had heard of the “prayer of faith” for healing. He made a consecration that covered everything. A quietness came over him. He recovered in three days and served the Lord the rest of his life and wrote the hymn, “Standing on the Promises” in 1886.

Prayer for the week: Dear Lord, At times life seems run wild but You hold the reins.  We need to live on earth as You would guide us. We need to ask You for everything and be prepared for You to change everything. We are healed by the power of God. Praise the Lord.  Amen
