Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?

‘For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.

When Jesus heard these things, He marveled at him, and turned around and said to the crowd that followed Him, “I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!”

And she said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.”
Come as you are to the Lord with your need, and lean on His unfailing and unconditional love for you. You don’t have to pretend to be more than what you are to receive the blessing you need from God. You don’t have to pretend to be someone else to appear more deserving to receive from God.
Last week on Wednesday, March 1, 2017, Catholics in Uganda, even around the world, observed Ash Wednesday which according to the Christian Calendar, always marks the beginning of a holy period of the year known as LENT.
In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you.
Have you ever asked yourself why some Christians are constantly beset with overwhelming challenges, sicknesses and defeat if God’s promise, “No weapon formed against you shall prosper” (Isaiah 54:17), is true?

With a crowd thronging Him, Jesus was touched by a lot of people that day (Mark 5:31), but only the touch of one woman drew a response from Him. And her touch sparked off instant healing in her body, releasing her from a sickness that had plagued her for 12 years.
Song of Solomon 4:7
You are all fair, my love, and there is no spot in you.
Sometimes, when we don’t receive our healing, breakthrough, restoration or miracle child, we can’t help but think that something is wrong with us.

President Yoweri Museveni has called upon Ugandans to be tolerant of each other’s religions.
The President who was speaking during an over night service held under the theme of ‘77 Days of Glory ’ at the Rubaga Miracle Centre Cathedral in Kampala last night cautioned the congregation about behaving like the Pharisees in the Bible who pretended to be very religious yet when they left the holy place, they were bad people at heart.
