Healing Scriptures

Tonight I am going to share some healing scriptures with you. If you need healing in your body, mind, spirit and soul, prong these out and put all over your house. Write them on sticky notes, and stick them everywhere. Every time you see them, read the out loud, speaking your healing. Believe by faith and it shall be!

The Bible speaks often of the miraculous healing through the work of Jesus Christ and having faith in God during tough times. This remains true for us today who may live with various ailments and who have many struggles.

The Bible says that “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits” ( Proverbs 18:21 ). Of course, the “tongue” in this verse represents that which tongues produce: words.

Praying Scripture back to God is a wonderful way to focus on his promises and provision. You can pray these Bible Verses out-loud over your life, sickness, and your loved ones. In addition, here is a short prayer for healing that you can use: Father, help me to keep my focus on you when the pain and hurt are overwhelming. Help me to be faithful and to see the good and blessings that surround me. Please strengthen my mind, heart, and body, and heal me today. May the Holy Spirit guide me in peace and comfort today. In the Name of Jesus Amen.”

Can Pastors Have Friends?

Can Pastors Have Friends?
September 4, 2015/21– 5:26 am

I have been thinking about this a lot lately. Can a Minister have close friends?

See, as a Minister myself, there are times we need to talk to someone besides just God.

But, who can we trust with our private thoughts, emotions and personal lives?

Yes, we have our spouse, but, even our spouse needs a confident person to vent their feelings.

Still if I talk to someone in the church about things, what will happen?

I read an article and it had a startling quote in there from H.B. London, head of pastoral ministries for Focus on the Family. He disclosed that “at least 70 percent of pastors in the United States claim they have no friends.”

This is absolutely heartbreaking and unacceptable to me. No wonder most pastors don’t make it in ministry long.

So why don’t they develop friends?

There’s tons of reason but here’s a few that come to my mind.

1) False Expectations: Many want their pastor to be friendly to everyone but close to no one!

2) False Assumptions: Many pastors have been told “You can’t EVER, EVER, trust people because they’ll use things you share with them against you one day.” (Side Note: Didn’t seem to stop Jesus.)

3) False Accusations: Many pastors will be criticized if they have close friends. If a normal person has close friends we call it healthy. If a pastor has close friends we call it a “clique.”

Pastors, don’t fall for it. You’ve been created for deep connectedness like everyone else. Develop and cultivate your close friendships (and encourage your spouse to do the same). You’ll need them. Every single one of them!“

God will show you discernment of the people He places around you. And He places certain people for certain circumstances in your life.

Friends rejuvenate and renew us. I have friends that refreshes my spirit through their steady reliance upon God’s promises. Anothers may refresh my spirit through their hopeful love for people. And some friends just all around encourages me through their unfeigned humility, and and I seem most productive when they minister within and from life-giving relationships.

Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you. You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. These things I command you, that you love one another.”John 15:13-17

According to the New Testament Bible, Jesus said that His friends were those who kept His word, His sayings, and obeyed the things that He commanded (see the Gospel of John chapter 15). He also stated that His disciples, followers, were His friends.

This includes the twelve disciples closest to Him, and those who were not included in that twelve such as Martha, Mary, Lazarus. Several women were also His friends in a sisterly way and they ministered to Him i.e. they would have helped Him with meals, sowing needs and such like. Their names were Susanna, Joanna, Mary (We see this in Luke 8:3). Those who follow Jesus are His friends—and the New Testament makes it clear that this includes those who follow Him today by obeying Him.

Blessings, Love and Prayers,
Pastor Pat Aman
Also, please know that:
I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with Joy.
Philippians 1: 3-4

Do Not Play Games With People’s Lives

Do Not Play Games With people’s Lives!
It Hurts! Deep Wounds Take A Long Time To Heal!
Author: Pat Aman

They came and said to him, “Teacher, we know that you are a truthful man and that you are not concerned with anyone’s opinion.”Mark 12:14

It is for certain there are people who play games with peoples lives. And it hurts!

People use all kind of excuses to only have you around at their convenience.

I do not know about you all, but, my husband and I cherish the people God blessed us with to take under our arms of love. We do not choose to love them today and hate them tomorrow. We do not just have them when we want then for convenience. And we have never understood people who live their lives treating others like objects you put away in storage when you do not need them.

I do not know about you, but we hate being shut up in a closet out of sight, until someone needs us. We do not like playing games with people we love and invest our hearts and souls into them unconditionally.

I found out that usually when this happens, it is because others are maybe going through things that they think someone will judge their actions. They are maybe even embarrassed by their actions. When God placed you there to help lift you them up. You are there to help pick them up and love them.

But, when you comfort them they make everything your fault. They twist every word you say into what they want to hear and not what you really meant in love. They will tell you, you interfered. When in reality you just love them to much and they did not understand your love.

The world is filled with opinions about what others should or should not think and do. With rare exception, most people are on the alert for others’ opinions about themselves. I’ve noticed this in certain comments: “You’ll think this is crazy…” or “I’m sure he thinks that…”

Jesus did not let the opinions of others affect him, especially when they consisted of lavish affirmation or hostile disapproval. Imagine if he had caved into what others decided about his teaching and actions. Instead, Jesus remained authentic and honest, showing by example that the judgments of others need not define our lives. The authentic quality we bring to our daily behavior is what counts. Today, let us be attentive to how much we allow others’ opinions to influence how we live.

Let’s not throw away the life line of love that Father God blessed you with.

After a while that life line gets weakens from the pulling and letting go of over casting and one day may break when you really needs it.

Remember to cherish, and love others as Father God loves us.

“If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:3-5, 7-8, 13‬ ‭

Father God Restores

Father God Restores His Children
Author: Pat Aman

God told us we had been faithful”. And we realized we were in the battle.

He said, “Even under everything you both have gone through you never left me. And even how less or much was in your bank account, you always paid your tithes and offering first. You understood, Give and It Will Be Given To You pressed down shaken together men shall give into your bosom (Luke 6:38)
You both understood ““Will a mere mortal rob God? Yet you rob me. “But you ask, ‘How are we robbing you?’ “In tithes and offerings. You are under a curse—your whole nation—because you are robbing me. Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not drop their fruit before it is ripe,” says the Lord Almighty. “Then all the nations will call you blessed, for yours will be a delightful land,” says the Lord Almighty.” ‭‭(Malachi‬ ‭3:8-12‬), now is time for Restoration.

See, we had learned giving is an attitude that allows us to give all that we are, have and possess in the Holy Spirit to provide greater glory for God.

You studied My word. You prayed daily with your family. You gave your time for service to others. You raised you children to have faith in me. Now it is time for restoration my children.”

Joe and I experience the devil stealing from us.

And we have testimonials of Father God blessing us over and over for what Satan stole.

But when we were going through it was almost as if everything was been sucked down into this black hole of darkness.

We sat down and made a list of all that the devil had stolen. Not because we were dwelling on the lost, but just because we wanted a visual list in front of our eyes to be able to thank God for His seven fold restoration every time we looked at the visual list on paper.

And it was hard when the list included friends we had help, given jobs and trusted. People like Accountants, Banker, Bank Employees, Lawyers who decided they wanted what we had for theirselves.

But Father God has restored us with new friends, business leaders and people we trust and respect and they trust and respect us.

Our stolen goods list long….

  • Houses
  • Cars
  • Boats
  • Money
  • Clothes
  • Health (from been under constant stress)
  • Medical Aid
  • Insurance
  • Holidays
  • Our Jobs
  • Our Name
  • Our Reputation
  • Food
  • And so much more
  • We almost wondered the simple things like our hairdresser! (long story), would be on our list, but she actually stood up for us and told some of her long time customers to leave and not come back. She believe and knew us.

We actually started sowing furniture and household items to others before we had them stolen. We would tell people just come get it if you need it.

But a strange emotion occurred when we started the list.

It started with the my Health, but if I trust God, God will take care of it. I was not going to let the devil steal more money from us again, because if we were spending money on Health then we were not standing on what God promises us.

“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”
‭‭III John‬ ‭1:2‬

Ps 103:5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Second on my list was my family’s health & stress related symptoms. I kept on hearing this quiet whisper: ” but my Son has paid the price for your healing.” 1 Peter 2:24 who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness– by whose stripes you were healed.

Another revelation! You don’t need to pay money for medication when Jesus paid the price in with His blood for your healing. This was hard after seventeen surgeries and health scares.

Next up was the houses and the cars:

God just said: If I’ve called you both to be a sojourner through this earthly land, din’t you need a house and a car? Yes, you do, but God provides all the way! The question God challenged us with was “did we trust God to provide a house and a car?”

Another issue sorted! God was taking them off our list at an alarming rate!

Our jobs, and everything. Insurance, money for college for our children. We had to learn to live by faith. We felt for us and our family, God was saying, I want you to rely on Me for your daily provision, and a roof over your head.

The name and the reputation was sorted out by when I found the following scripture:
Isaiah 61:7 For your shame ye shall have double; …

It was a tough lesson to learn.

When the restoration word came, the Holy Spirit whispered: “do ya’ll really want to go back to the bondage of a salary, medical aid and insurance? Do you really want to trade all the lessons you have learned living by faith for a lifestyle of just enough (salary) and of having a backup Plan in case I do not come through?

Our response was: but what happens if it all gets stolen again?

This was not a good question to asked Father God!

“If the devil has stolen from you and you have learned to live by faith, you are able to faith it all back! And once again, I will restore more that the devil took! What have you really lost?” was quietly offered as an answer.

The devil cannot rob us of our Faith in God!

As the Holy Spirit made mince meat of all of our “stolen goods to be restored Seven Fold” points, the only thing we came up with was what had truly been stolen was Satan trying to make us doubt Father God’s abilities. By faith God could heal and replace all of the rest, we only had to believe. Was our relationship and Father Gods just proved to us once again that we did not know God well enough to trust Him to restore. Are the Satan just messing with our minds.

The devil has stolen many of our ours & the children’s relationships with family and friends.

Our list left us once again realizing:
Father God is only interested in His children’s and them living as Father God’s children.

Only when we had started “seeking first the kingdom of God” had we received the promise of seven fold restoration. Only once we started leading people to the Lord, praying for the sick, started preaching the good news of the Gospel, – all the things important to Father God, did the promise of restoration come. See, we had somewhere taken our eyes off of Father God, while thinking we were serving Him by helping others. But, the help Father God wanted us to do was not just material things, but more important, spiritual things.

Once our sights were focussed on what Father God saw as important, People, not just people, but where people would spend eternity, how we treated individuals, what words of life had come out of our mouth to sow life. He sorted out the rest.

All else comes down to our faith level in “Only Believe”

Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

The reality check was we experienced all Restoration seven fold to with all the lessons we have experienced since 1989 really needed to shift our thinking into “the mind of Christ” before thinking of “things to be added to us.

Now, we can truly look forward to God restoring each and every relationship, and *seven fold blessings of restoration!

And I can promise you that Father God will continue to restore many more because He promised He would restore seven fold all that the devil had stolen.

Do You Ever Just Get Tired?

Do You Ever Just Get Tired?
Author: Patricia Aman

We all at times grow weary of well-doing.

Men and Women both are prone to wearing themselves out by tirelessly taking care just life itself, until we no longer feel like we have an ounce left to give.

This is just one of the tactics Satan uses to try and stop us.

He tries to make us so BUSY with the nonessential things that we are too worn out for the important things.

Yes, B.U.S.Y.

I learned this sitting in a dear friends Sunday School Class. Jeff Oglesby at St. John PH Church.

Jeff’s words hit my spirit when he said, “we get to busy, “Being Under, Satan’s Yoke.”

God knows that we are often weary but know that He wants to give you His strength so that we can reflect His glory.

“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.” Galatians‬ ‭6:9-10‬

Paul tells us to live a life pleasing to God in all that we do. Someday we will give an account for every thought, word, and action while we lived on earth.

But when things get too busy, our lives can turn into turmoil and chaos. Then we weary ourselves running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off, trying to manage life on our own. And this affects everyone around us.

We start being irritated with just the little things that would usually not matter at all.

And I promise you that you will reap what you sow during those times.

Your actions will bite you in the backside.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galatians 6:7

Even I had to learn the hard way that I didn’t always have the right spirit. Sometimes I would focus on things that weren’t important and it caused me hurt and heartache.

Remember when you stress over the things that Father God wants to handle for you, but we refused to let Him, is when our spirit is out of alignment.

When we spend more time with Father God and His Word it will encourage us when we feel like we are about ready to collapse and faint from well-doing with the wrong attitude.

We must remember to: “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Matthew‬ ‭6:33-34‬ ‭

He Is The Refiner

“He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. ..
‭‭Malachi‬ ‭3:3‬ ‭

“Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭64:8‬ ‭

Author: Unknown
There was once a group of women studying the book of Malachi in the Old Testament. As they were studying chapter three, they came across verse three, which says: “He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver.”

This verse puzzled the women, and they wondered what this statement meant about the character and nature of God. One of the women offered to find out about the process of refining silver and get back to the group at their next Bible study.

That week this woman called up a silversmith and made an appointment to watch him at work. She didn’t mention anything about the reason for her interest beyond her curiosity about the process of refining silver. As she watched the silversmith, he held a piece of silver over the fire and let it heat up. He explained that in refining silver, one needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire where the flames were hottest as to burn away all the impurities.

The woman thought about God holding us in such a hot spot – then she thought again about the verse, that he sits as a refiner and purifier of silver. She asked the silversmith if it was true that he had to sit there in front of the fire the whole time the silver was being refined.

The man answered “Yes”, and explained that he not only had to sit there holding the silver, but he had to keep his eyes on the silver the entire time it was in the fire. If the silver was left even a moment too long in the flames, it would be damaged.

The woman was silent for a moment. Then she asked the silversmith, “How do you know when the silver is fully refined?”

He smiled at her and answered, “Oh, that’s easy. When I see my image in it.”

If today you are feeling the heat of this world’s fire, just remember that God, our Father has His eyes on you.
