Jesus Calling #4
Today’s devotional from the Jesus Calling book was amazing. I have read this several times already and will continue to do so. If you have never heard or read this book, I highly recommend it. It is written from God’s perspective to us and the lines in italics are scripture references. I love the promises in this morning’s devotional about God’s healing power. What a great reminder! God is our great healer!
I am a God who heals (Psalm 103:3). I heal broken bodies, broken minds, broken hearts, broken lives, and broken relationships. My very Presence has immense healing powers. You cannot live close to Me without experiencing some degree of healing. However, it is also true that you have not because you ask not (James 4:2). You receive the healing that flows naturally from My Presence, whether you seek it or not. But there is more – much more – available to those who seek.
The first step in receiving healing is to live ever so close to Me. The benefits of this practice are too numerous to list. As you grow more and more intimate with Me, I reveal My will to you more directly. When the time is right, I prompt you to ask for healing of some brokenness in you or in another person. The healing may be instantaneous, or it may be a process. That is up to Me.Your prat is to trust Me fully and to thank Me for the restoration that has begun.
I rarely heal all the brokenness in a person’s life. Even My servant Paul was told, “My grace is sufficient for you,” (2 Corinthians 12:7-9) when he sought healing for the thorn in his flesh. Nonetheless, much healing is available to those whose lives are intimately interwoven with Mine. Ask, and you will receive (Matthew 7:7).
