Healing Is In Your Hands
A Devotional by Margot Cioccio
Jesus went throughout Galilee,
teaching in their synagogues,
preaching the good news of the kingdom,
and healing every disease
and sickness among the people.
Some of you who are following this devotional blog have let me know that you enjoy my simple recordings. While I was on vacation I did a simple cover video recording of Healing is In your Hands. It is a beautiful song by Christy Nockels that has touched my heart. I have several friends who are in need of God's healing touch. It is my hope that this song will minister to them and to others who are trusting God to heal be it through the hands of doctors or simply a healing touch directly from the Lord. However God choses to work is fine with me. I do want to encourage you to trust and to not loose hope. I have found great strength and hope by remembering the many promises of healing found in the Word. Please leave a comment if you are in need of healing and would like our growing devotional family of readers to stand with you in prayer.
Here are some of my favorite verses about healing:
1 Peter 2:24
"Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree,
that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness--
by whose stripes you were healed."
"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary,
and they shall walk and not faint."
"Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
but the LORD delivers him out of them all."
"For I will restore health unto you,
and I will heal you of your wounds, saith the Lord."
"Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who heals all thy diseases"
3 John 2
3 John 2
"Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper
and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth."
"Thy light shall break forth as the morning,
and thy health shall spring forth speedily;
and thy righteousness shall go before thee:
the glory of the Lord shall be thy rear guard."
Dear Lord, I thank you that you have already paid the price for our healing. Help us to trust in your great love as we stand on your word for our own healing or for the healing of people we know and care about. You know the hearts of each person reading today come now and meet each one at the point of thier need.
