Healing is from the Healer, 06JAN
Healing is from the Lord, our Healer, only He can fill in our brokenness. To be a helping healer to others, one needs His healing first. He offers. To help, one needs to accept help first. He helps. We are supposed to be the messengers, not the message. We can take purpose but not pride from helping others. His healing can come thru our hands and hearts. His Spirit flowing.
I do believe that trials help us heal pain from other pains, if only we look to our Healer. God takes my hand because I offer it to Him. He takes our lives into His Hands, even when we don’t try to give it to Him. We need Him in the good times just as much as the worst.
Our new lives in His Hope are from and for His glory.
We serve not to be served, but because we were ALREADY served by our Savior. We are saved. He now needs us to hope for all.
I will exalt you, Lord, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me.
Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me.
You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead; you spared me from going down to the pit.
Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people; praise his holy name.
For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.
When I felt secure, I said, “I will never be shaken.”
Lord, when you favored me, you made my royal mountain stand firm; but when you hid your face, I was dismayed.
To you, Lord, I called; to the Lord I cried for mercy:
“What is gained if I am silenced,
if I go down to the pit?
Will the dust praise you?
Will it proclaim your faithfulness?
Hear, Lord, and be merciful to me; Lord, be my help.”
You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
Lord my God, I will praise you forever.
