Memory Monday – Week 17

I’m continuing on the theme of verses over the topic of healing. Today’s verse comes from Jeremiah 33:6. God made a promise of complete restoration while Babylonia was in the midst of a disaster. Not only for health and healing, but for peace and security too. Just as the Babylonian disaster did not change God’s purpose for His people, the trials we face don’t change God’s plan to bring us a child. Most people can say when they look back on their life, it seems that most of the blessings always come in the midst of a trial. I think while we are in the middle of the trial, He is wanting us to take our eyes off our struggle and to fix our eyes on Him, the only one who will bring us healing. We know God is bigger than any disaster or trial and He wants us to trust and believe Him while we are in the midst of them.

I also like a few verses prior to this one, “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” – Jeremiah 33:3. God assures Jeremiah in this verse, that if Jeremiah calls and prays to Him, that He will answer. He wants to answer the desires of our heart. He just wants us to ask first. We shouldn’t expect to receive something, especially if we haven’t asked for it. Does God need us to ask Him? No, He is so much bigger then that. But, when we ask Him it shows Him that we care about Him, that we love Him, and that we can’t accomplish anything with our own strength. It ultimately proves our desperate dependence on Him.

If you missed the other verses I’ve posted specific to healing, here are the links:
Week 13 – Isaiah 53:5
Week 14 – Acts 3:16
Week 15 – Psalm 30:2
Week 16 – Psalm 103:2-3

    I spent my time at the acupuncturist praying today for many things but not healing. Thanks for reminding me that it’s Him who will heal me not the doctors per say.

    Have you read The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson? I highly recommend it!! He talks about how we need to pray circles around things in our life. The book is all about how we often don’t get because we don’t ask. By not asking we are not displaying a full faith and dependence on God to act in His fullness! Check it out if you haven’t already 🙂

    I definitely need to be more vocal with my asking out loud. After a while you just start to think that He knows our hearts, so why do I keep needing to ask for what I want? I have learned that it’s better to ask with an expectancy rather than just pleading and begging during the catastrophes as well…which is what so many people tend to do. The healing scriptures and prayers are very helpful, so thank you for sharing them here!
