The Great Healer

Are you suffering from an ailment of some kind? Do you long to be healed, to be made whole again? Are you actively seeking being healed, or are you sitting idle and wishing? Have you turned to the healer of all?

We know or meet people on a regular basis who suffer from one ailment or another. Some actively pursue healing through doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, mediums, or even home remedies. Though they may not find healing through their attempts, at least they are seeking it.

Others do not seek healing. They are content to sit and do nothing. Yet, they will complain of their ailment until the cows come home. Perhaps they just want attention. Perhaps they are afraid of what they will be told. Perhaps they are simply too lazy to help themselves. Perhaps they are incapable of seeking healing. In any case, they don’t seek healing and wallow in their misery.

There is One Healer we can reach out to who will ultimately heal us of our ailments. Unfortunately, many will not reach out to Him. He does not promise to heal all our physical ailments in this life. However, in some cases, He does heal physical ailments. What He will heal us of is our spiritual ailment. He will bring us into a relationship with Him that will make us whole. His healing includes removing our fear, granting us courage, peace, joy, and loving us unlike any other.

I pray we all reach out to the perfect Healer. I pray we seek to be healed by the One who provides the ultimate healing. I pray each one of us will throw off our reluctance to be healed. Seek the One true Healer. Seek God. Ask God to heal you of your ailments. Receive healing. God is willing to heal you. Accept His healing.

Acts 9:32-35 As Peter traveled about the country, he went to visit the Lord’s people who lived in Lydda. There he found a man named Aeneas, who was paralyzed and had been bedridden for eight years. “Aeneas,” Peter said to him, “Jesus Christ heals you. Get up and roll up your mat.” Immediately Aeneas got up. All those who lived in Lydda and Sharon saw him and turned to the Lord.
