The Jewish High Priest went into the Holy of Holies once each year to make atonement for his sins and the sins of the people. On that day the blood was sprinkled seven times on the mercy seat and in front of the mercy seat. Then, going back outside the veil, he sprinkled the blood on the horns of the altar seven times [Leviticus 16:11-19]. This foreshadowed Jesus shedding His blood for us. The number 7 represents completion or perfection. Jesus’ blood was shed seven times, and in shedding His blood He made a full, perfect, and complete sacrifice for sin on the cross! Let’s take a look at the ways that the blood of Christ was shed.
Firstly, His blood was shed in the Garden of Gethsemane. “And being in agony He was praying very fervently; and His sweat became like drops of blood…
All to often we pray, solicit prayer experience God’s blessings but never share our testimonies and victories.

All to often we pray, solicit prayer experience God’s blessings but never share our testimonies and victories. Sharing God’s grace, healing and strength is just as important as the prayer seeking God’s help. So, today I share this and encourage you to share His blessings as well.
Praise the almighty power of God. I have submitted multiple prayer requests over the past two years regarding a friends who was being attacked by a form of fibromyalgia in Europe. Eventually, she was bedridden and unable to do anything for herself.
She texted me the other day to thank everyone that prayed for her. Deliverance has arrived, with the help of everyone who prayed for her complete recovery. She did not give up, or give in, but kept her eyes on the strength of the Lord. Result, she received new medications and the illness reversed itself. She walked her dog for the first time in two years, two days ago.
She is in physical therapy, strengthening muscles etc., but functional again. She was always a God fearing woman and did not let Satan strip her faith.
I love our victory stories, our God is our strength. When we walk by faith and not sight all things are possible. 1 Chronicles 16:12 tells us – “Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.”
Thank you prayer warriors from the bottom of our hearts.
I love waking up to the new day ready to experience our Father’s plan for my day. Each day is new, no boredom if you are His child and live by faith and not sight.

Life unfolds with new wonders, gifts, and challenges every single day. Some large and extravagant, others small and barely noticeable. Some things are joyful and others laborious. Our God does not believe in boredom. He created seasonal change. He chose you and planned your life experiences accordingly. We are all part of His master plan. His children are well cared for, and want for nothing when we live in faith.
