God heals us – Prayer for December 6. God heals, but healing is not always the only way that He chooses for us. Sometimes His plan for our lives is to allow us to suffer. The reason for this is that only through suffering He can teach us things that we would never be able to learn in other situations.
Bible Verse for Today
“Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.” (3rd John 1:2)
Your whole being – mind, soul and body – is very precious to God and plays an important role in his plan. He has given you the responsibility to take good care of it. But sometimes what we can do is simply not enough. Then we have to trust that God does what only he can do.
Maybe your body needs healing. Or maybe your soul and your feelings need healing after some difficult situations. No matter what we need, the Bible assures us: God wants every part of our being to get well. But sometimes we need to go through suffering to learn some things God intended we to learn.
When we are sick, we can not do what God intended us to do. We are then unable to enjoy the life he has given us. God has a wonderful future for you and being healthy – in mind, soul and body – is important to doing what He has prepared for you. Pray for his healing power today. But to experience such healing, it is important that we run to our Eternal Father and not away from Him caring heart.
