Acts 9:32-43

Acts 9:40Vintage message from January 5, 1997.

“Sometimes God wants good people dead. Sometimes He brings good people to Himself. Sometimes He allows people to enter their rest… We’re not created for this life. We’re not created to live eternally in this flesh. We’re not created to have this situation forever…
We still, in every situation, need to be people of prayer. God may work a little faster in one situation but not as fast in another situation…
The number one issue in our lives needs to be the spiritual healing of those that we know. The number one issue in our lives should be to bring those around us who do not yet have a relationship with the Lord to a place of having a relationship with the Lord, that they might be healed spiritually. And you know what? No one is excluded in God’s eyes. No one is undeserving of our prayers… That should be our number one priority is to bring people to that place of understanding that God wants them. He does not want them separated. He’ll let them choose, but He doesn’t want them separated. And if that means sometimes having to get on our knees and pray for God to do a miracle in one person’s life so that many people around him might be spiritually healed, then that’s what we need to start doing, trusting that the Holy Spirit will do what He wants. It’s not about me. It’s not about you. But it’s about God; about what He wants to do in our lives; what He wants to accomplish in this world, and He may choose to use some of us.”
