Jeremiah 17:14 – Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise.
God gave each one of us one of His most unique creations, The Human Body. Our eyes are so complex that they are composed of over 2 Million working parts. Our feet contain over 25% of our body’s bones. Your nose “remembers” over 50,000 different scents. I could go on but I think you get the idea. One of the most amazing things is how our bodies heal. God gave our Skin, Bones, Muscles and other tissues the ability to regenerate. Take your basic knee-scrape or cut hand, in a matter of a week or two, what was previously a bloody mess now looks like nothing happened.
God can do the same kind of healing with our souls. When we are injured we long to be healed. A twisted ankle or broken hand can inhibit our ability to get around and do things as efficiently as we would normally be able. When we are living our lives opposed to God’s Word we encounter the same sort of obstacles. Those who knowingly live a life sin, eventually long to be healed too. The life of sexual immorality, drugs, stealing, dishonest business practices, etc. leave an empty heart that longs to be filled. Philippians 1:11 – filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
God can heal us on the inside much quicker than he can on the outside, all we need to do is ASK. In the above verse Mathew Henry describes this healing as an “ever flowing fountain that is always fresh, like spring-water.” He compares it to sin, “a puddle that is clear and fresh in the beginning but eventually gets muddy offering no refreshment whatsoever.” John 4:14 – but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
God Heals, God Heals, Glory to God, God Heals . . . . Psalms 147:3 – He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds
