The God Who Heals Me

Jesus Heals

Just  talked to a Dear-one who is “going through it;” I mean the ‘hit-youwith-the-Kitchen-Sink’ kind of ‘going through it.’

In the scheme of things, a broken bone would be a cleaner type of hurt: This is emotional. Prayer Warriors Unite, so that this Child of God does not become prime rib on Satan’s menu. My view on this subject was stated back in February. Here is a replay:

 

So often I counsel Believer’s that ask for prayer regarding one ailment or another. As I listen, I am concerned about the lengthy and detailed descriptions of their ailments and what the doctor had to say. Sometimes, I find that I must interrupt in order to get a “prayer in edgewise.”

What if we were just as familiar with what the Word of God said as we are with what the Pharmacist, the Internist or the Specialist had to say? Please don’t misunderstand. I realize the all-consuming nature of sickness. As a teenager I watched my own dear Mother succumb to the fierce ravages of Chronic Leukemia; while she stayed faithful to the Lord right up until her passing at only forty-six years of age.

In addition to the Lord’s call upon my life to Ministry; I also recall the desperate feelings of wanting to “DO” something to stop Mom’s pain; stop the wasting away of her body, strength and life. From that time until this, I have searched out the Scriptures and looked to the Lord for His healing. Our family was part of a denomination which taught that miracles and healings were ‘passed away’… Gone with the last Apostle. We were to simply look forward to ‘making heaven our home–in the sweet by-and-by.’ But I had read in the Bible that: “…heaven and earth shall pass away, but My word shall not pass away.”

Whom shall we believe? I’ll tell you whom I believe:  Our God is a ‘consuming fire [Hebrews 12:28-29]; mighty in battle [Psalm 24:8]; has overcome the enemy; the last enemy to be defeated is only Death itself; which will flee at His coming. You see, our God is Spirit and those that would worship Him, must worship Him in spirit (our own) and in truth (only His word is truth). John 4:24

So Beloved, get your Bibles out and open them. Read and consume; feast upon the Living Word. It is only through His word and the gift of His Holy Spirit (the very Spirit of Truth) that we have any chance; any chance whatsoever against the ancient enemy of our souls; whether it be physical, mental, emotional or relational in this world-system.

Jesus told us to “Be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world.” John 16:33   Additionally, let’s start by cracking open our Bible for ourselves in order to find out what are some of the many, many benefits we can stand solidly upon for our wholeness. Let us concentrate ourselves fully to “These things” and place all others in their proper place… as we: Take the medicine prescribed; continue our treatments; and all other prescribed and recommended therapies. Let’s be proactive as we “fight the GOOD fight of faith.”

Focus readings:

  • John 17:12-19 (Whole Chapter) Jesus prays for us all to know that God’s Word is truth.
  • Exodus 15:26 and said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.” Exodus 15:25-27 (in Context) Exodus 15 (Whole Chapter)
  • Psalm 103:3 Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Psalm 103:2-4 (in Context) Psalm 103 (Whole Chapter)
  • Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:2-4 (in Context) Psalm 147 (Whole Chapter)

Until next time… Be Blessed!
