    I was led to 4:20-22 through a radio broadcast by Derek Prince Ministries. Through these verses Derek was healed in Egypt during WW2. Using the word medicine for health in verse 22. Doctors tell you how often to take your medicine. Taken daily or three times a day, Gods word certainly brings healing. But we must incline (Bow) our ear to listen to the Lord's saying and "take" the word daily. Amen.

    @ Bre... I Thank the Almighty God and the Power of the Holy Spirit for given you His word as succor at the trying time. Let us all take vs 15 of this chapter "Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away". Obedience to this word is a strong weapon as strong as fasting and prayer.
