Today’s Key Scripture (all references NKJV unless otherwise noted:
Come and let us return in repentance to the Lord…He will heal us.
—Hosea 6:1, AMP
God’s divine touch upon a broken body or mind is not merely a New Testament phenomenon from the days of the apostles and the Early Church. His ability to perform the miraculous is not and never has been restricted to a certain timeframe in church history.
God is no respecter of persons, for Hebrews 13:8 declares, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”
What does this mean, in terms of spending time in His presence?
God is a healing God, and His very presence births the hope of healing, deliverance, and restoration. Chronicled in every book of the Bible is God’s power to heal.
Healing, in fact, is an integral part of why Jesus Christ endured Calvary: “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5, KJV).
We are also promised, “The prayer of faith shall save the sick” (James 5:15). This is as true today as the instant the Holy Spirit inspired the apostle James to write the words.
Miracles still happen! As you spend time in prayer and fellowship with Him, you can find comfort in the fact that He is still the Healer!
A Prayer for Today:
Almighty God, I’m so grateful that You are Creator and Giver of life. You are my Healer. You bring light where I otherwise could not see the way. You plant my feet on solid ground, keeping me from falling, even as You guide and guard along the way. And because of what You did on Calvary, You brought salvation and healing, not just to me, but for my loved ones, as well. Help me to walk in the miracle-life You have prepared for me. I pray this all through Jesus Christ my Savior and Lord, Amen!
