Day 5: Healer

…for I am the Lord, your healer. Exodus 15:26

 Of course, God can heal us. He made us. Sometimes life breaks us. Scars us. We live in a fallen world where there is disease and death. We live in a world where people hurt others physically and emotionally. Sometimes intentionally. Sometimes unintentionally. Sometimes life just happens.

We all need healing at some time. God is a healer who not only heals us physically but heals us emotionally and spiritually. Sometimes he heals instantly. Sometimes it is a process. Sometimes he heals miraculously. Sometimes he heals through medicine and technology. Most of the time he uses humanity, others who care and are willing to share, to be his agents of healing in the world.

 However he does it, it comes from him. Sometimes the healing is in knowing that we have his presence. Paul ‘s thorn in the flesh was never removed but God reassured him that his grace was sufficient because God’s power is perfected in our weakness.

Through Jesus Christ we have the ultimate healing and the promise of eternal life where there will be no more sickness. We won’t have these frail physical bodies that break down and get old. There will be no more tears, sadness, sorrow or death. Total healing.

Whatever your ailment, illness, problem or predicament. Trust God as your healer.

Psalm 103:1-3
 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits,
3 who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases, Psalm 103:1-3

Exodus 15:26
26 saying, “If you will diligently listen to the voice of the Lord your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give ear to his commandments and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you that I put on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, your healer.”

Deuteronomy 7:15
15 And the Lord will take away from you all sickness, and none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which you knew, will he inflict on you, but he will lay them on all who hate you.

Exodus 23:25-26
25 You shall serve the Lord your God, and he will bless your bread and your water, and I will take sickness away from among you. 26 None shall miscarry or be barren in your land; I will fulfill the number of your days.

How has God healed you?
