God’s Healing Touch

by J. M. Farro on January 29th, 2023

   “She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse.”  Mark 5:26 NIV

   Years ago, the Lord led me to this passage when I was concerned about some medical treatment I received, that I thought might have done me permanent harm.  Perhaps you know about this biblical account of the woman who had been “subject to bleeding for twelve years.” (Mark 5:25 NIV)  All those years, she was getting medical treatment from “many doctors,” and her health was getting worse instead of better.

   Now, you would think that twelve years of damage to her health would be pretty impossible to reverse.  But this woman put her faith in Christ to make her whole again, and she did, in fact, receive her healing. (v. 29)  God led me to this encouraging passage to reassure me that He can, and will, undo any harm that medications or medical treatment might cause me, if I will look to Him for restoration.  And I rejoice that I can tell you in all honesty that the Lord did, indeed, restore me to health.

   Perhaps today, you are concerned about what harm a medical person might have caused you.  Whether it was a doctor or a dentist – or a member of their staff – or a medication or treatment that was ordered for you, the Lord can redeem that situation for you, and He can work it out for your good somehow. (Romans 8:28)  God is still in the miracle-working business.  Ask Him for His healing touch today!

   Lord, today I ask that You heal me from the top of my head to the soles of my feet – inside and outside – and enable me to walk in divine health and wholeness all the rest of my days.  Reverse and remove all harm that has been done to any part of me by doctors, dentists, or health care personnel – or treatments, drugs, or remedies of any kind.  Remind me often that You said, “What is impossible from a human perspective is possible with God.” (Luke 18:27 NLT)  Thank You that as I look to You first for my healing needs —and for wisdom – You will lead me along Your perfect pathway of healing and wholeness!
