The Rhythm of Your Life- P.1 (4.10.16)

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
[23] And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. [24] Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

Romans 5:1
Isaiah 57

If we are walking in God’s Rhythm, and in His will, we will have:

Peace with God
Peace within
Peace with Man

True peace with God will affect you spiritually, mentally and physically.

Romans 12:2
1 Corinthians 6

You don’t have a rhythm without rest. The pause, or the rest, sets the rhythm. Without it, its just noise.

Revelation 22:17
[17] And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

The Holy Spirit is setting the rhythm. The church is meant to get in rhythm with the Spirit so that others can get in rhythm with the Spirit as the church echoes Him.

Amos 3:3
[3] Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

Galatians 5:16-17…walk in the Spirit

Amos 3:8
[8] The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord God hath spoken, who can but prophesy?

Everything God created has a rhythm. You cannot and will not find true peace and wholeness in your life if you are not in Rhythm with God.

Who is setting the rhythm and pace of your life?  Do you have time set aside to have a relationship with God?

2 Corinthians 6:14-18
[14] Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? [15] And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? [16] And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them ; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. [17] Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing ; and I will receive you, [18] And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Don’t get in any covenant that hinders you from walking in rhythm with God.

John 6:38
[38] For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

**Some things cannot come into your life until you get a Rhythm.

If we aren’t in rhythm with God, we will not be at peace within. If we aren’t at peace within, we wont be whole, and will be trying to get from man what only God can give us. Therefore we wont be at peace with man.

John 12:49-50
[49] For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. [50] And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

If I am walking in Rhythm with God, I will be at:
Peace with God
Peace within
Peace with Man

Exposure- P.2 (4.6.16)

Ephesians 2:1-3

[1] And you hath he quickened , who were dead in trespasses and sins; [2] Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: [3] Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

Verses 1-3 portray us before salvation.

John 17:1-3
[1] These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: [2] As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. [3] And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

Ephesians 2:7

Eternal life begins the moment you are saved…not when we die. Thats just the transition point between here and heaven.

Eternal life is to know God, the only true God and Jesus Christ, whom He has sent. (John 17:3)

John 17:8-21
[8] For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them , and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. [9] I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. [10] And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. [11] And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are . [12] While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. [13] And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. [14] I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. [15] I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.[16] They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. [17] Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.[18] As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. [19] And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. [20] Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; [21] That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

Daniel 6…example of being in the world but not of it.

John 7:4-7
[4] For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world. [5] For neither did his brethren believe in him. [6] Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready. [7] The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.

John 3:19-21
[19] And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. [20] For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. [21] But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Isaiah 5:20-21
[20] Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! [21] Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

Malachi 2:17
[17] Ye have wearied the Lord with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him ? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the Lord , and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment?

For The Rest of Your Life- Part 6 (4.3.16)

Hebrews 11:1-3
[1] Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. [2] For by it the elders obtained a good report. [3] Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

John 1:3
[3] All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

1828 Webster’s Dictionary uses scripture to define words. It defines the word “universe” as all that God has created. It is made of two words, “uni” meaning one, and “verse” meaning word.  God used the power of faith, contained in His Word,  to frame, or put together, the universe.  Romans 1 tells us that God reveals himself through His creation.

God is glorified in His finished work.

God is glorified in the manifestation of His Word.

Hebrews 1:1-3
[1] God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, [2] Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; [3] Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

Take time to pause, to cease and celebrate all the ways that God has manifested His Word in your life. Take inventory of your life and give God Glory!!!

There is enough faith in God’s Word to bring itself to manifestation.

Romans 10:17
Romans 10:8
Isaiah 55:11

Joshua 6:1-3
[1] Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of Israel: none went tout, and none came in. [2] And the Lord said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour. [3] And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days.

See and envision what God has said.

Joshua 6:4-10
[4] And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams’ horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets. [5] And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him. [6] And Joshua the son of Nun called the priests, and said unto them, Take up the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests bear seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark of the Lord . [7] And he said unto the people, Pass on, and compass the city, and let him that is armed pass on before the ark of the Lord . [8] And it came to pass, when Joshua had spoken unto the people, that the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams’ horns passed on before the Lord , and blew with the trumpets: and the ark of the covenant of the Lord followed them. [9] And the armed men went before the priests that blew with the trumpets, and the rereward came after the ark, the priests going on, and blowing with the trumpets. [10] And Joshua had commanded the people, saying, Ye shall not shout, nor make any noise with your voice, neither shall any word proceed out of your mouth, until the day I bid you shout; then shall ye shout.

Joshua 6:14-16
[14] And the second day they compassed the city once, and returned into the camp: so they did six days. [15] And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early about the dawning of the day, and compassed the city after the same manner seven times: only on that day they compassed the city seven times. [16] And it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew with the trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the Lord hath given you the city.

You will see what God said!!!

Matthew 17:1-4
[1] And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, [2] And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. [3] And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. [4] Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.

Jesus took them apart and was transfigured. They saw Jesus in a way they had never seen Him before, because they were willing to take time away to spend with Him. Jesus wants to  reveal Himself to us in a way we’ve never seen Him before, but we have to be willing to set time apart for Him.

Exposure- P.1 (3.30.16)

Ephesians 2:1-4
[1] And you hath he quickened , who were dead in trespasses and sins; [2] Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: [3] Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. [4] But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

Romans 5:8

Romans 6:7

Ephesians 2:5-22
[5] Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) [6] And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: [7] That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.[8] For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: [9] Not of works, lest any man should boast. [10] For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. [11] Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; [12] That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: [13] But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. [14] For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us ; [15] Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; [16] And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: [17] And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. [18] For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. [19] Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; [20] And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone ; [21] In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: [22] In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

Many believers know what they have been saved from, but do they know what they have been saved to?

Acts 26:14-18
[14] And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. [15] And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest. [16] But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee; [17] Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee, [18] To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

2 Corinthians 4:3-4,6
[3] But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: [4] In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. [6] For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Darkness has no power. It is the absence of light.
Ignorance has no power because it is the absence of knowledge.
Hate has no power. It is the absence of love.

If you leave the light of your life turned off, you allow the enemy to have his way in darkness.

When you walk in darkness you susceptible to the enemy who comes to kill, steal and destroy.

Synonyms to ‘darkness’:
Confusion
Ignorance

John 1:4-5
[4] In him was life; and the life was the light of men. [5] And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

John 3:16-21
[16] For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. [17] For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. [18] He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. [19] And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. [20] For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. [21] But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

John 8:12
[12] Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

John 9:5
[5] As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

John 11:9-10
[9] Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. [10] But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.

John 12:35-36
[35] Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. [36] While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.

John 12:46
[46] I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

Are there areas of our lives where we are not allowing the light of God’s Word and the light of Jesus to shine?

The Journey From Glory To Glory- P.2 (3.27.16)

Philippians 2:7-11

[7] But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: [8] And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. [9] Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: [10] That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; [11] And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Verse 7 shows the incarnation of Jesus.

Colossians 2 and Genesis 3 speak of Jesus’ incarnation.

Galatians 4:4...when the fullness of the time

Philippians 2:8 shows the humiliation of Jesus.

Isaiah 50:6-7I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting. For the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.

The exaltation of Jesus is portrayed in Philippians 2:9

Romans 10

The adoration of Jesus is described in Philippians 2: 11

If I were the one who dressed Jesus how would he be adorned?
We adore him with our praise.

The Journey From Glory To Glory- P.1 (3.23.16)

Proverbs 8:23-30
[23] I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. [24] When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. [25] Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: [26] While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. [27] When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: [28] When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: [29] When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: [30] Then I was by him, as one brought up with him : and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;

John 1:1,14
[1] In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. [14] And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Hebrews 1:3

John 1:1&14
[In the beginning was the Word][And the Word was made flesh]
[and the Word was with God][and dwelt among us]
[and the Word was God][and we beheld his glory]

Luke 24:1-5,16-31
[1] Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. [2] And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. [3] And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. [4] And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: [5] And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? [16] But their eyes were holden that they should not know him. [17] And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad? [18] And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days? [19] And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people: [20] And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him. [21] But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done. [22] Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre; [23] And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive. [24] And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not. [25] Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: [26] Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? [27] And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself. [28] And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further. [29] But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them. [30] And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it , and brake, and gave to them. [31] And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.

They did not know who Jesus was until he showed them the scriptures and broke bread.

John 17:1-5
[1] These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: [2] As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. [3] And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. [4] I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. [5] And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

Gods glory is in His Word!!

For The Rest of Your Life- P.5 (3.20.16)

Mark 4:35-40
[35] And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side. [36] And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships. [37] And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. [38] And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? [39] And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. [40] And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

Jesus already gave the disciples His word, which was that they would go to the other side. This came right after He had taught them a parable, in Mark 4, about the seed of the Word and the ground in which it can be planted. God’s Word always works. Wether or not there will be a harvest depends on the type of ground the seed is planted in. The ground is the heart.

The Bible says that two things always come immediately as a result of hearing the Word of God: Faith (Romans 10:17)  and Satan (Mark 4:15). When we receive the Word of God, it is for the Word’s sake that it will be tested. We can’t let offense steal what was sown in our hearts. We must trust the Word that was given.

Mark 4:14-17
[14] The sower soweth the word. [15] And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts. [16] And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness; [17] And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word’s sake, immediately they are offended.

When you hear the Word of God on any given topic, you will be attacked in that specific area. Have faith in what the Word says and rest in that.

Jesus told the disciples they would go to the other side. He rebuked the wind because it challenged His Word that He had already given.

Mark 4:41  And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?

The disciples didn’t wake Jesus up because they saw the storm and thought He could do something about it. If that were true, they wouldn’t have been so amazed when the winds obeyed Jesus’ rebuke. They would have expected it. They woke Him up because they were offended that He was asleep, and not sharing in their anxiety. Jesus, however, has so much faith in the Word, that He was able to go to sleep (Mark 4:38). Anxiety robs us of rest.

In Jewish culture, a ‘day’ started at sunset. It began with rest.

Jesus knew the importance of rest as He slept on the boat. As soon as they got to the other side, He healed a man with a legion of demons, went to heal Jairus’ daughter, and healed the woman with the issue of blood.

Philippians 4:6-9– apply this Word and then don’t allow circumstances to cause you anxiety. David knew the value of trusting God’s Word.

Psalm 3:1-2,5-8 
[1] Lord , how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me. [2] Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah. [5] I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the Lord sustained me. [6] I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about. [7] Arise, O Lord ; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly. [8] Salvation belongeth unto the Lord : thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.

Trust in God to take care of you.

Psalm 4:1,8
[1] Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer. [8] I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord , only makest me dwell in safety.

Cast your cares on the Lord and rest in His Word.

Look at time the way you look at money. When you spend more money than you make/have, it is going to cause you anxiety. When you spend more time than you have, it is going to cause you anxiety. If you’re always going, and never resting, you will end up displacing your anger and anxieties on others.

If you don’t have any savings, you’ll be unprepared for an emergency that may cost money. When you don’t allow yourself any margin of rest, you will not be prepared if anything unexpected happens.

John 3:8 God has individual plans in all our lives that He wants to accomplish, but many of us don’t have time to be Spirit-led. We need to leave some time in our lives to allow the Spirit to direct us and do what He wants to accomplish. We must manage our commitments.

When we refuse to rest, we will pay for it in anxiety. Sleep becomes the payment for our days debt. Sleep is rest for the body. Resting, in a manor of ceasing and celebrating, is rest for the soul.

Mark 5:1-2,22,25
[1] And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. [2] And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, [22] And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet, [25] And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,

Your rest and your sleep should set you up for the plans that God has for you.
