Wounded: inflicted with a wound; injured
Did you know that our God has several names? Provider, Protector, and Healer are just some of these. And today I want to focus on Healer.
In the Bible, you can flip through the Gospels and find no shortage of times where Jesus healed someone. In one chapter He heals a man of leprosy. In another He makes the lame walk and the blind see.
Oftentimes, people think that because Jesus has returned to Heaven, there is no more healing. But that’s actually not correct.
In John 14:12, Jesus tells His disciples this: “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.”
From this we know that healing is still possible.
So if you’ve been carrying the burden of sickness or disease, know that healing is still available and possible. Jesus still has compassion for the sick, and healing can still occur.
And if you’ve been struggling with some mental, spiritual, or emotional wounds, healing can come to you as well.
James 5:14-15 says, “Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.”
If you are sick or wounded today, have faith that you can be healed. Speak healing over yourself, proclaim it, and thank the Lord for it. Have others come into agreement of this healing with you, and declare scripture over yourself.
Our God is still on the throne. He is still active and alive, and He still cares. Our God is still a healer…He is YOUR healer. Don’t lose heart.
