“And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers,
which stood afar off:”
(Luke 17: 12)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
Our Focal Scripture introduces ten men who were lepers. None of them was a woman;
they were all of the male gender. So people in the same gender were caught in the
same challenge. A challenge caught up with ten people in the same gender, and messed
up their lives.
Jesus eventually showed up and dealt with the leprosy that came to reduce the
destinies of those men. He dealt with a matter that affected ten people who were of
the same gender. He dealt with what seemed to have become a gender specific issue.
He took those ten men out of a challenge that affected their gender.
Friend, God is showing up to deal with every gender specific challenge that has come
to mess up your life. God is showing up to pull you out of every sickness that has
an affinity for your gender. The struggles of people in the same gender with you
will not be your struggle; the challenges that mess up people in your gender will
not mess you up or tamper with your life.
The ten men were together in the same challenge, and when Jesus came, He didn’t heal
one of them or some of them; He healed all of them. As God shows up to deal with
your own gender based issues, challenges, diseases, etc, He will not only solve your
own issues, He will also reach out to everyone connected to you.
Instead of accepting your gender based challenges as necessary evils you must live
with, take them to God in prayers. If Jesus healed those ten men, then He can deal
with every gender-based issue affecting you and people connected to you.
If Jehovah is involved, your gender-based issues will end by the power of God.
Pray With Me: Lord, deal with every gender-based issue that has come to mess up my
life, in Jesus’ name!
