Again, I am convinced...

Past few weeks I was so busy with outreaches, I could hardly sit down read the word of God. And not too long after I started my intensive outreaches, I started feeling stressed and slightly confused. Today, God told me to rest at home. And I actually didn't listen to Him but still try to be busy with ministry, I guess doing ministry has become part of my self-fulfilment, but it's actually wrong, and no one should ever fall into this trap! Anyway, somehow God made me sat at home and almost did nothing except sweeping floor and do house cleaning. Then I somehow play the Youtube named: "The Jesus Trip" by John Crowder. And suddenly I was started being filled by the joy of salvation, and the Gospel again, being a good news for me, I started feeling light and restful. 

Again, I am convinced, that I have to be conscious of the Happy News (Gospel) all the time. I might be busy with something that seems noble, but still, the Happy News must be the one thing that I'm conscious of.

Did Jesus tell us to pray for the sick??

Jesus was going throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness among the people. (Matt 4:23 NASB)

I need to repent that God has never tell me to pray for the sick! But He tells me to HEAL the sick. Too often, I see people pray for the sick like this: Lord I pray that you will heal... God has never command us to pray for the sick to be healed by God, we ourselves should go and heal them!! Because the Kingdom is at "my hand", whoever I lay my hand on, they have to be healed by the Kingdom of God! Bible tells us to "heal the sick" or "lay hand on the sick", no longer do we need to ask God to heal but God asks us to heal. Healing is in your hand, because the Kingdom of God is at hand.
