Jeremiah 33:6 Behold, I will bring it health and healing; I will heal them and reveal to them the abundance of peace and truth.
Good health is easy to take for granted when you feel well, but when a person’s health fails it becomes the most important thing in their life. Poor health can come to anyone at any time, and even if it doesn’t come to you it might come to someone you love. We’ve all experienced poor health either directly or indirectly at some point in our life, and often the question is, “why?” Why did God allow this sickness?
We need to understand. God’s original design for Creation didn’t include sickness, but when Man first sinned in the Garden, God’s perfect design was polluted, and sickness came into the world. Physical illness is a direct result of the curse that came from Mankind’s original sin.
But the good news is that God brings health and healing in His good time. He is quite capable of bringing health and healing to a person, a family, a church, or even a nation. In fact, Scripture says there will come a day when the curse of sin will be removed and there won’t be anymore sickness or pain. All suffering will end.
Revelation 21:4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.
That’s the future God has planned for those who truly believe in Jesus as Lord and Savior. But in the meantime, we’re to pray for God’s healing hand to touch those who are sick and hurting. May the Lord bring health and healing to His people.
Have a God Filled Week,
