There is no illness so powerful that the Lord cannot heal. He commands the heavens, He rules the earth; nothing can surpass God’s willingness to bring healing to the one who surrenders the heart to Him.
“In those days Hezekiah became sick and was at the point of death. And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came to him, and said to him, ‘Thus says the Lord: Set your house in order, for you shall die, you shall not recover.’ Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, and said, ‘Please, O Lord, remember how I have walked before you in faithfulness and with a whole heart, and have done what is good in your sight.’ And Hezekiah wept bitterly. Then the word of the Lord came to Isaiah: ‘Go and say to Hezekiah, Thus says the Lord, the God of David your father: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Behold, I will add fifteen years to your life.’” (Isaiah 38:1-5)
God is faithful in all things. His mercy falls on all who believe. He will not ask us to bear suffering beyond our means. He will not allow misery to fill our hearts. His grace through the shed blood of Christ will save us.
We are His church, and we are those who know joy, for the knowledge of Jesus’ sacrifice for our sins fills our hearts with joy. How wonderful God is to have saved us and heal us of our infirmities.
God is our healer.
