Love’s Healing Power

Matthew 9:35 Jesus traveled through all the towns and villages of that area, teaching in the synagogues and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom. And he healed every kind of disease and illness. (NLT) 

“You have cancer and at most only have a few months to live.” Everyone dreads hearing those words. Some avoid tests that reveal the truth. Others refuse treatment after discovering the truth. And still others enter dark periods of depression. Jesus didn’t heal every disease and illness he encountered, but he healed all types of diseases and illnesses in every type of person. And he possesses the power to cure them all if he chooses. Diseases extend beyond the physical realm. Emotional and spiritual sicknesses are often just as deadly and require healing only Jesus can deliver. Through prayer and meditation on his Word, God’s unconditional love and comfort will soothe the pains of depression, sorrow, disappointment, loneliness and uncertainty. And when we take side roads or shortcuts in our spiritual journey, his Word and indwelling Spirit will lovingly guide us back to the right path.

Ask and you will receive.
