"Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed;
save me, and I shall be saved,
for you are my praise." Jeremiah 17:14
Turn to God in your pain. Make the choice to go to God first when you're suffering. If a friend is sick or in pain, bring them the gift of soup AND prayer. If your church does outreach to a retirement home or hospital, consider volunteering with them and praying for the people you meet.
What's the first thing you do when you're sick or injured?
Call your mom? Take some aspirin and try to push through it? Panic? Pray?
Many Christians today don't live as if God is capable or willing to heal. Even if we believe that He is, plenty of factors hold us back from relying on him. But in this age of medicine and science, God is still the source of all knowledge and of miracles.
Holy Spirit, in Your mercy, grant healing to those You love. Amen.
