OUR LORD OUR HEALER
From ancient days, the God of Israel made His name know as a healer.
He healed those injured by snakes in the desert. He healed lepers and He healed those who had been struck by the plague.
The Lord, when He walked in our midst, was prolific in His healing and His ministry of restoration.
He healed the blind, the deaf, the mute and those oppressed by the devil.
He healed the withered arms of the man in the synagogue and He healed the issue of blood of a woman who touched the hem of His garment. He healed the paralyzed young man and also healed the 10 lepers of whom only 2 came back to thank Him.
He also freed Mary Magdalene from 7 demons as well as the man in Ganasaret whose legion of demons were cast into the doomed herd of pigs.
The Lord Jesus withstood a brutal flogging where the Roman soldiers struck Him on his body leaving furrows like a plough.
"By His stripes we are healed", the bible affirms. Jesus undertook the afflictions on His physical body so that we could be healed from afflictions on our own bodies.
How blessed is He who heals our infirmities.
Praise His holy name.
