Heal Me Lord................

Heal me, O LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise. Jeremiah 17:1

He is your praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes. Deuteronomy 10:21

Psalms 103:2-3 Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits — who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases.This Psalm has been quite popular in my family for as long as I can remember. My mother particularly loved it and used it in her prayers daily. I memorized it when I was perhaps 4 years old. As an adult, it is a constant reminder that the greatest of the Lord’s “benefits” is that He forgives all our sins, and it is also a reminder of another of the Lord's benefits: He is my healer. He is able to heal all of my diseases. Praise Him! He does not heal some and unable to heal others. The Lord heals ALL diseases, even Multiple Sclerosis, Cancer of all types, Diabetes, Dementia, High Blood Pressure, Heart disease, Liver and Kidney issues, as well as chronic digestive issues and migraine headache. He heals all diseases.

"All" means all. No disease is so great that the Lord cannot heal it. Just last Friday I experienced God's healing power. I was in the middle of teaching a class when I felt this awful, and teeth clenching pain in my stomach and I bent over and started sweating in complete agony. As I tried to make it to my desk to get to the bottle of pain reliever in my purse, I remembered the above scripture as well as something Gloria Copeland said during a recent healing meeting. She said, "Do not yield to sickness, take authority and do not reach for the aspirin every time you feel something and always pray first." So I prayed and the pain left just as quickly as it started. Though God healed me multiple times before, I was so astounded with the speed of the recovery that I spent the rest of the day feeling my stomach, pressing it and looking for the pain but it was gone to never return. Hallelujah!

I get really impatient when people say that God does not do certain things anymore, considering that God said in Malachi 3:6 that He is immutable. God is still at work. He is still doing the things He always has done. He has not retired and His magnificence surrounds us. Healing is not just something that God “does.” Healing is part of God’s very nature. God still heals. Friend, Approach God in faith with boldness and experience His healing power. Listen, no disease is too hard for Him. When God said "all diseases" It did not make any exception. No illness is excluded from this great “benefit.” Therefore, whatever disease you or a loved one may have, it falls right under God’s authority and promise to “heal all your diseases.” You and your loved ones can be healed. In fact, the word of God in 2 Peter 2:24 says "by His stripes, you were healed." Friend, You are healed!

God said Himself “I AM the Lord who heals you.” You and I must remember that we serve a healing God who has declared that He has noble intentions towards you. He said it in Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome." He said in Exodus 23:25-26 "Worship the LORD your God, and his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you, and none will miscarry or be barren in your land. I will give you a full life span". God is truth. He cannot lie. Lying is against God's nature. When He said "I will give a full life span" He meant it. Healing is yours. Hold on to God's truth. Trust that He will keep His promises and experience God's healing power.

-Abraham prayed to God, and God healed Abimelech, his wife and his slave girls.
-Moses prayed in Numbers 12:13, “O God, please heal her!” in reference to leprous Miriam, and God healed her.
-David prayed and God healed.
People have been praying for healing for centuries. Do you think they would continue to do so if God did not heal? My friend, as I stated above, every disease and sickness in under God limitless power. Do not hesitate to bring any healing need, yours or loved ones, to God. Follow God instruction on healing. Have faith in God, Pray and meditated regularly, have elders pray over you and anoint you with oil, pray for others who are sick and decide to believe God no matter you hear and see and soon you will be healed. The lepers in Luke 17 did not get healed right away. In obedience to Jesus, they were healed “as they went” to show themselves. Friend, you too will receive your healing. Do not get frustrated if it is taking long and if the doctors are not optimistic. Do not doubt. Hang on to the truth: God heals. God will come through for you.

Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is [always] the same, yesterday, today, [yes] and forever (to the ages). Hebrews 13:8

I am the Lord Who heals you. Exodus 15:26

Praise the Lord!
