As we learn the many names and attributes of our Lord, we realize that the names simply reinforce the fact that God is complete in every way and meets all of our needs. In our lives, it is a great thing that God is a God of healing. Since the fall of man, we lost the ability to be immortal. Then, after the flood, people’s bodies became more and more frail and limited in life. From the time of Noah when Methuselah lived almost a thousand years, peoples lives have diminished to the point that they now average 80 years.
In the midst of the reality of our mortality, God reminds us that he is available to heal us. The healing of our bodies, our souls and our spirits become a wonderful gift from a wonderful God. In our lives, we can never underestimate the great healing and restorative power of God. In James 5, James tells us to pray and anoint the sick, so that God will heal them.
Jesus, in his ministry to show men the character of God, went village to village healing the sick and raising the dead. He brought hope to the hopeless and peace to those living in chaos. That aspect of Jesus ministry–literally changed the live of many and established Jesus authority as God. (Matthew 9:5). Our God heals and restores us physically, spiritually and mentally and emotionally–not simply because he can…but, because that is who he is.
God Bless You
