Our God Can Heal
“Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.”
Having worked in health care for over 45 years I have naturally been concerned with sickness and have learned much during this time. I believe God cares about our spiritual life and also our physical life. He created the human body, and he is pleased when we enjoy health and vigor, but in this world our bodies endure sickness, pain and decay. Sometimes we abuse our own bodies, and when many of our ailments occur we don’t always understand or know why God has allowed these to happen to us. Jesus healed many people during his days on the earth and people are still being healed today. God still works to heal people in ways that defy medical knowledge, and it is never wrong to pray for healing, either for ourselves or others. I have witnessed many people who God has healed when my hospital had no answer as to handle their illness and see them leave the hospital with the physicians scratching their heads. God does still heal today. The Bible tells us to pray for whatever we need, and that surely includes freedom from pain. But healing does not always occur, even to the most loving, God centered people, and we don’t understand. The Bible promises us that if we are not healed in this life however, that there is something greater waiting for us afterward. We know that our earthly bodies are wasting away each day, but that when we die and leave these bodies, we will have a home in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. Many of us grow weary in our present bodies, but we will have a new body in heaven that will be without any pain or suffering. Our new body will last forever and will not be subject to decay but will have everlasting life. To all that are reading this devotional today that are in pain and suffering from some illness, and have given up hope for a cure, I want to tell you that there is still hope when you turn your illness over to God. He can heal your body, just as Jesus did when he walked on this earth. Turn to God today and ask Him for your healing, ask Jesus to come into your heart and forgive you of your sin. Promise to obey His command and let Him be first in all that you do. Jesus died for your sins and gave you the promise of an eternal home in Heaven. Turn your cares and worries over to God who can still heal today.
