My daily reading this morning was Hebrews 11…but now I am thinking about healing for my daughter. Below are the scriptures I’ve just read to encourage me. I know that my salvation includes healing, for me and my family!
Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for You are my praise. (Jeremiah 17:14 AMP)
And the prayer [that is] of faith will save him who is sick, and the Lord will restore him; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. (James 5:15 AMP)
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole. (Isaiah 53:5 AMP)
BLESS (AFFECTIONATELY, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul; and all that is [deepest] within me, bless His holy name! Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul, and forget not [one of] all His benefits– Who forgives [every one of] all your iniquities, Who heals [each one of] all your diseases, (Psalm 103:1-3 AMP)
He personally bore our sins in His [own] body on the tree [as on an altar and offered Himself on it], that we might die (cease to exist) to sin and live to righteousness. By His wounds you have been healed. (1 Peter 2:24 AMP)
I remember watching a message by Joyce Meyer a couple of months ago on healing and her saying “even if we can’t see what’s happening, God is working!” (she may have said it slightly different). This gave me rest, knowing that even though I cannot see with my human eye what is going on inside Tori’s body, God is in control, he is our healing and he will do what he promised. God gave us many promises, we just have to have faith! I know that is sometimes easier said than done but if we can learn to keep our eyes continually on Jesus we will find hope in Him and those promises. Today I am praying for all you parents out there with children who have special needs. I am praying that we can all trust and hope in God for healing, and SEE even the small miracles that God chooses to do.
