But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; You shall go out and leap like calves released from their stalls. Malachi 4:2
The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
One day, the Lord told me, today is a new chance. Each day I woke up I had a new opportunity to love, to learn, to grow, to spend time with my family and friends: to live. I know life has beat you down, left you wounded or deeply cut… but God is a healer. Each day is His gift to us. The Father has healing in motion for you!
Our lives consist of results from decisions we make, but much of what happens in life is also out of our control. We experience loss, disappointment, betrayal, sickness, disease, and random chaotic events which don’t fit in to our self designed life plan! And maybe your own life does not look as you planned it, hasn’t been as joyful as you desire it to be or it may feel out of your control quite honestly. But God can heal each and every single one of those hurts!
Some time ago, I lost my desire to live, and my sense of excitement. From the outside looking in, it seemed that I was living my best life and was surrounded my loved ones; but I felt dead. I felt that I was merely existing. I often wondered, why did You wake me up today, God? I saw everyday as something I had to survive. My life came to a halt during depression. The dedication I had invested into my body, self development and self discipline, were all, slowly but surely, lost. And while I can justify myself, by stating all the negative and unfair things I have experienced: who has a perfect life anyhow?
I embarked on a journey with God to change me, and the Lord brought to my attention: it is necessary to heal. I had forgiven, I had released, I had uprooted paradigms (strongholds or set of beliefs) and replaced them with good and godly ones, but I still needed healing. We may not be aware of the pain harbored in our hearts, but God knows each specific detail. I believe in the practice of medicine, but I have experienced God’s supernatural medicine to be more reliable, and complete than any other method (trust me I have tried things you can’t even imagine… future posts? Lol).
My hope today is that you will invite God, the Healer, to heal your hurts and perspectives. After all, our perspective affects the way we see the world and our selves (self esteem).
Father God, Lord God of all; you are amazing, and righteous. There is none like you. Today I lift up my brothers and sisters in the faith, and those who do not yet know you, but also need healing. I ask Lord Jesus, to be their balm of Gilead, to be their closest friend in time of need and to go into each situation, even those from infancy, childhood and the ones from even today God. Please touch their lives and send a fresh wave of your Spirit into those situations. May each person have a supernatural encounter with your Spirit, and be healed by your Love and Presence. Reveal your glory Lord, in Jesus name. Amen.
