“But my servant Caleb has a different attitude than what the others have. He has remained loyal to me, so I will bring him in to the land he explored. (Numbers 14:24)
A healing attitude in Jesus heals Chuck after the injection of experimental cancer drugs.
Attitude is important for blessings and healings. Healings come from above (Jesus) making changes in our environment, emotions, and the physical systems of human beings. Negative attitude is the fundamental number one trait of the father of doom and darkness (Satan). Our attitude should always be the same as Jesus - positive and resurrected, not decayed. “Your attitude should be the same as that of Jesus Christ”- (Philippines 2 :7).
Caleb was faithful from the start. As one of the original scouts sent into the Promised Land, he saw great cities, yet he knew God would help people conquer the land . Because of Caleb’s faith, God promised him a personal inheritance of Land. 45 years later, the land was given to him. Like Caleb. we should have the positive attitude to meet the challenges in our lives.
Chuck, 40 years old, learned that the cancer he had fought off twice while in his 20’s had reappeared. This time the tumour was so wrapped around his vital organs that the doctor could not go after it with radiation. He was in serious trouble. He adopted the positive attitude by the prayer support of his family members and friends. His hope, faith and love working through Jesus kept death at bay. He had participated in a testing programme carried out by the doctors of St. Louis doctors for an experimental cancer drug. This drug targets the individual cancer cells and kills them. After receiving his experimental treatments, Chuck met with his doctor. The doctor told him that something strange had happened. “I can’t find any sign of the tumour,” he said. “It’s gone.” Despite all indications that he was facing death, he chose a positive attitude and focused not on being sick but on his purpose - on hope, faith, and on the conviction that he could benefit others.
Prayer: Jesus let us be like you in our attitude towards life. We pray for all those who are living and brooding on their fate and failures. We pray for friends and families of positive thoughts. Let everyone be positive in their outlook in life. All we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.

- Today with Jesus
“Leave these men alone! Let them go.” (Acts 5:38)
The sign of the Cross on the television tower in Berlin : “The
sign of unbeatable sign of worship,”- Ronald Regan, President of USA in 1987.
Till the passing of
the present earth and heaven, Christ, his Cross and its principles would be
valued and be in proclamation for the salvation of the world. No power on earth
can wipe out the eternal truth of God from the face of this earth. It is always
better not to fight and antagonize Christ and his principles. When Peter and other disciples were put in
jail to be punished by the assembly of Jews, the great respected learned
teacher, Gamaliel, advised them,
"Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will
fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will
only find yourselves fighting against God” -(Acts 5:38&39). It is an universal law for a smooth peaceful
way of co-operative living on earth.
After the second world
war, Berlin was under Communist government. Most of the churches and its
symbols were destroyed to crush the faith in Jesus. To show the power and
strength of atheism and communism, Walter Ulbech, the head of communist
Germany, constructed the tallest television tower in Germany. On top of the
tower is a stainless steel globe in rotation.
As soon as the construction was over,
everyone was shocked to find a shining and glittering sign of a cross on
the globe from top to bottom. The sun's rays shone on the globe from all sides
making the cross to glitter. The
engineers tried all their might to erase it, but in vain. Still it is there to proclaim to the world
that the cross is our salvation.
Conscience question: Are we in a fight against Christ and
his teachings by our actions of projecting and selling ourselves for self-glorification?
Prayer: Jesus, let us be the promoters of your signs
and symbols of your sacrifice on the cross for our salvation and eternity. Let
us not be destroyers, but custodians of your teachings. We pray for all those
who are in the ministry to spread your good news of salvation on the cross. Let
all those who believe in you be in salvation and the fighters against you be in
conversion. All we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.
