GOD'S WORD: Psalm 103:3-5 "Who forgives [every one of] all your iniquities, Who heals [each one of] all your diseases, 4 Who redeems your life from the pit and corruption, Who beautifies, dignifies, and crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercy; 5 Who satisfies your mouth [your necessity and desire at your personal age and situation] with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle's [strong, overcoming, soaring]!"
- Forgives ALL my iniquities
- Heals ALL my diseases - Jeremiah 17:14 - "save" - to open wide the gates of li>captivity, release and rescues us, defends and preserves us.
- Isaiah 52:9 "redeems" - set free by paying back – Jesus "'paid" with
So my youth is renewed like an eagles – my necessity and desire at my personal age and necessity.
GOD'S WORD: Isaiah 40:29-30 "He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound]. 30 Even youths shall faint and be weary, and [selected] young men shall feebly stumble and fall exhausted;
SHEEP: Spiritual strength comes from waiting on the Lord. Faith takes God at His Word when circumstances seem to deny the truth of His promises. Our ability to endure to the end will depend upon allowing the Holy Spirit to train us in this kind of faith. Wait - expectantly, hopefully.
GOD'S WORD: 1 Peter 5:11 "To Him be the dominion (power, authority, rule) forever and ever. Amen (so be it). "perfect" – make fully ready.
Colossians 1:11 "We pray] that you may be invigorated and strengthened with all power according to the might of His glory, [to exercise] every kind of endurance and patience (perseverance and forbearance) with joy,"
Colossians 2:7-15 " Have the roots [of your being] firmly and deeply planted [in Him, fixed and founded in Him], being continually built up in Him, becoming increasingly more confirmed and established in the faith, just as you were taught, and abounding and overflowing in it with thanksgiving. See to it that no one carries you off as spoil or makes you yourselves captive by his so-called philosophy and intellectualism and vain deceit (idle fancies and plain nonsense), following human tradition (men's ideas of the material rather than the spiritual world), just crude notions following the rudimentary and elemental teachings of the universe and disregarding [the teachings of] Christ (the Messiah). 9 For in Him the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving complete expression of the divine nature].
And you [a]are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power].

[Thus [b]you were circumcised when] you were buried with Him in [your] baptism, in which you were also raised with Him [[c]to a new life] through [your] faith in the working of God [[d]as displayed] when He raised Him up from the dead.
And you who were dead in trespasses and in the uncircumcision of your flesh (your sensuality, your sinful carnal nature), [God] brought to life together with [Christ], having [freely] forgiven us all our transgressions,
Having cancelled and blotted out and wiped away the handwriting of the note (bond) with its legal decrees and demands which was in force and stood against us (hostile to us). This [note with its regulations, decrees, and demands] He set aside and cleared[e]completely out of our way by nailing it to [His] cross. 15 [God] disarmed the principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them in Him and in it [the cross].
SHEEP: I expect to walk in healing - Parkinson is defeated! Our spirits, souls and bodies need this discipline.
