Pastor Dusty Update

Thanks to all of you who have been praying for me and inquiring about all that has been going on in my life in the last several months. Your love and prayers have made the difference! I thought it would be helpful to address the most common questions that I am asked. Hope it blesses you.

HOW ARE YOU FEELING?

I am strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. (Ephesians 6:10) The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead is giving life to and restoring my mortal body. (Romans 8:11) My strength and youth are constantly being renewed like an eagle - strong, overcoming, and soaring. (Psalms 103:5)

HOW ARE YOU DOING?

I have died and my life is hidden in Christ in God. (Colossians 3:3) It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives within me, and the life I now live I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself up for me. (Galatians 2:20) It is God in me both willing and doing His good pleasure. (Philippians 2:13) I will do greater works than Jesus did. (John 14:12)

WHAT'S YOUR PROGNOSIS?

I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living, (Psalms 27:13) for I know His plans for me, welfare and not calamity to give me a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11) Affliction and distress shall not arise twice. (Nahum 1:9)

BUT WHAT DO THE DOCTORS SAY?

Jesus, the Great Physician, said,  "I give you power and authority over unclean spirits, to drive them out, and to cure all kinds of disease and all kinds of weakness and infirmity." (Matthew 10:1) "...for I have come that you may have life and life more abundantly," (John 10:10) "...for all things are possible with God." (Mark 10:27)

Luke, who was a medical doctor said, "Jesus was healing many people of sicknesses and distressing bodily plagues and evil spirits, and to many who were blind He gave a free, gracious, joy-giving gift of sight." So He replied to them, "Go and tell John what you have seen and heard: the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the good news (the Gospel) preached to them." (Luke 7:21,22)

WHY DID THIS HAPPEN TO YOU?

In the world we have tribulation, but we are of Good cheer, because Jesus has overcome the world and deprived it of its power to conquer us. (John 16:33) Faith is the victory by which everyone born of God overcomes the world. (I John 5:4)

HAS THE LORD SHOWN YOU ANYTHING IN ALL OF THIS?

Yes, that the devil never shuts up, so we must shut Him up by ignoring His lies and by speaking what the Lord has said and not repeating what Satan has said.

IS THERE ANYTHING WE CAN DO FOR YOU?

Yes. Pray. The earnest, heartfelt, prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available. (James 5:16) Ask in faith without any doubting. (James 1:6)
