God heals us – Prayer for December 6. God heals, but healing is not always the only way 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.” (3 John 1:2)
Your whole being – mind, soul, and body – is very precious to God and plays a vital role in his plan. Therefore, he has given you the responsibility to take good care of it. But sometimes, what we can do is not enough. Then we have to trust that God does what only he can do.
Maybe your body needs healing. Or perhaps your soul and your feelings need healing after some problematic 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 us to know.
When we are sick, we can not do what God intended. We are then unable to enjoy the life he has given us. God has a beautiful future for you, and being healthy – in mind, soul and body – is essential to do what He has prepared for you. Pray for his healing power today. But to experience such healing, it is imperative that we run to our Eternal Father and not away from His caring heart.
