David’s words on healing
What do you think when someone makes a promise to you? You expect them to keep that promise but so many promises in this day and age are broken leaving people hurting and devastated.
It’s different when God makes a promise for it is His nature to be faithful and reliable. “Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise” (Heb. 10:23 NLT). God’s promises cannot fail.
So let’s look at how David understood God’s words of promise for us today:
“1 Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. 2 Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me. 3 He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. 4 He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies. 5 He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!” (Ps 103:1-5 NLT)
There’s some beautiful promises in there but I want to focus on the promise that just as God is willing to forgive all of our sins, he is also willing to heal all of our sicknesses. He heals our souls abundantly and He heals our bodies abundantly. He is a sin bearer as long as he is a disease healer. He wants to save sinners as well as save (or heal) all who are sick. He wants to make the spirit whole and He wants to make the body whole.
Faith is governed by the word of God and is nothing less than expecting God to do what He has promised. Jesus went to the cross and took all of our suffering so that we, as children of God, can be protected from suffering.
Today, don’t let what Jesus did for you go to waste. Accept the full healing of your soul and your mind and your body.
Lord, I thank you for what You did for me when You went to the cross. I believe in You and believe that You took my sins and You took my diseases. Please heal me today, I pray. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
