Your Healing

For as long as I can remember, and that’s been a long time, there has been disasters affecting nearly all the corners of the world. Many go unreported. They have affected the rich and the poor from Hollywood to Haiti. They are referred to as “natural ” disasters. The implication is that they will happen as a matter of course. We cannot avert them.

I contend  that some can be; We cannot build on the sand or in the middle of a body of water. We cannot build a summer log cabin nestled in and covered with fuel for a fire. Moreover, we cannot ignore God’s blueprint for  living under His protection.

The response to carelessness and foolishness is often; “It serves ’em right. They should have known.”

A personal example that we now face is the recovery of our son from a major injury. He will be with us for some time in recovery. In his know-better- than -that fifties, and as an experienced  builder, he was cutting with his skill saw, a loose panel from a very awkward position . The saw bounced  and kicked back onto his leg where it cut muscle and tendon clear to the bone just above the knee. Aside from all the interior work, thirty staples were required to close the wound. His response was; “I was stupid. I should have known better.”

Regardless of the truth (or not) of that statement, some things are our own fault. Many would say God allows things of like nature to happen that we learn… perhaps avert even more serious consequences. I fully subscribe to that as I have been there on countless occasions where I am sure that He intervened. Often without consequences. While we might exclaim; “Whew, was I lucky!”;  we know that we were blessed. And, with the knowledge that things might well have been worse. In truth it is; “There could I have gone,  but for the Grace of God”.

Back to the issue of  massive disasters; the current ones specifically. We have one responsibility, though we may seem to have little connection. We must recognize that disasters are not “natural”, they are caused. Some  can even  produce desirable results. We must pray for recovery, restoration……even the wisdom to avoid reoccurrence. My response is framed in the following verse;

Blest is He who made the wine, then bled it full upon the cross,

Our faith His risen breath defines. To fashion life beholding loss.

Healer, giver, His Father’s sage:  Promiser of heaven for every age.

Finder of souls so often lost, brings love to bear decrying cost.

His touch to eye or limb or brokenness, brings blatant sinners to confess.

How is it we come to know, but for your relentless pursuing so?

We bow and wash your holy feet, with tears of joy so mixed with grief.

Nations sound their trumpets now; Compassion-care of Your endow.

May your will be done in every land; find blessings at your tender hands.

Restore lost peace in all surviving face, to carry then your lasting grace.

Let not your tortured  sacrifice, fall swift to Satan’s cruel device.

Stripped bare we stand for your embrace. And hunger for Your healing, holy face.

Amen and Amen

    Praise the Lord, Jesus provided by His perfect sacrifice, not only forgiveness of sins, but repair and healing for body, soul and mind. Thank God for the best medical help there is, but when it comes to the crunch we know healing comes only from the Great Physician. May your son experience the healing touch of the Master and His love, and all concerned be drawn closer in faith to Him and His will.

    Always in all circumstance whether individual and personal or national and community wide we know God’s will, will be done in earth as it is in heaven. No man, devil, or natural force can thwart the will of God, for He is God and is the Creator, and if man continues to live in disobedience and contrary to His will , there will be hard lessons to learn and even eternal hell reward. Praying that as many as possible will be spared the wrath of God by repentance and turning to the paths of righteousness prescribed in the Bible.
