Divine Healing and Divine Health

European history tells us that In A.D. 410, barbarian tribes poured into Rome, ravaging and pillaging the city. In response to critics who said the rise of Christianity had weakened Rome, Augustine, bishop of the city of Hippo in North Africa, wrote the book “The City of God.” In this book, which became a major influence in Western civilization, Augustine sort to bring assurance to those who had been violated and explained how Christ brings hope in all situations. His goal was to bring the healing power of Christ and his good news to those who were traumatized.

The scripture reminds us that our Lord himself was “a man of suffering, and familiar with pain” (Isaiah 53:3). Since a child in Bethlehem, when he barely escaped a massacre, to his death on the cross, he was the target of violence and hatred. Yet, he continued to move with love among the people, healing miraculously with touch and word.

Today, as we contemplate the good news of healing, what comes to mind is that inscription over the door in the great hospital in New York: “Of The Most High Cometh Healing.” What is it that haunts your heart and threatens to leave your life in pain and ruin? Look to Jesus for your every need. Remember, “He took our pain and bore our suffering” at Calvary and “by His stripes, we are healed,” the bible says. Therefore, God’s ultimate plan is not just divine healing but divine Health.

When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick (Matthew 8:16).

Let’s Pray

Yahweh, thank you for the healing of physical pains and difficulties. However, I know that the root of my trouble is deeper and that only you can ultimately heal my heart and soul, Amen.

Friend, why don’t you join me by Stretching out your hand to God today and be healed?
