a) Today, is the last day of the year 2020. Generally referred to as a challenging year, there are ample reasons to bless the name of the Lord. Let us bless God in the words of Psalm 103:1-6.
” Bless the Lord , O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord , O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.”
Also today, let us embark on a short study of the POWER GIFTS by looking at the following references under each of them:
Gifts of power, that is, working gifts.

b) The gifts of healing. This is supernatural power to heal all manner of sickness without human aid or medicine ( Mk. 16:18; John 14:12; 1 Corinthians 12:9)
c) The working of miracles. This is supernatural power to intervene in the ordinary course of nature and to counteract natural laws if necessary (1 Corinthians 12:10; 27:31; Hebrews 2:3-4; Psalm 107; Exodus 7:10-14:21; 2 Kings 4:1-44; 6:1-7; Matthew 17:20; Mk. 9:23; 11:22-24; John: 14:12)
