“Let all that I am praise the LORD;
with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
Let all that I am praise the LORD;
may I never forget the good things he does for me.
He forgives all my sins
and heals all my diseases.
He redeems me from death
and crowns me with love and tender mercies.
He fills my life with good things.
My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!”
Psychiatrists and psychology get at the root of our problems to find a reason for psychotic thinking and sinful behavior offering an “excuse” and “accuse” along with a pill to dull the pain. God has us confront our behavior and identify it as sin, confess it and be healed. ( John 5: 1-8, Genesis 3: 9-13, Luke 6:37, 1 John 1:9, James 5: 13-16, Isaiah 58:9)
When we stand before God’s judgment seat we will be accountable for whether or not we accepted His healing balm of salvation through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice for our sins or if we refused and blamed others, remaining wounded, defeated in our sin. (John 3:16, Ephesians 2: 8-9, Psalm 103:2-5)
God’s prescription in these circumstances is to acknowledge sin, confess it as our own and receive in faith God’s only remedy – Jesus Christ. (1 John 1:9)
Therefore, if we seek God with all our heart and mind and desire His righteousness, we will find His solution is in His Son, Jesus Christ. (Jeremiah 29:11-14, John 14:6)
If God did not withhold our spiritual healing for the sake of our salvation, then how will He withhold our physical, mental and emotional healing when we ask?
(Romans 8:32-35, 1 John 5:14-15)
Once upon a time I allowed sin to cause my emotional, mental illness. The psychiatrists with their drugs and psychology got nowhere. But God in His mercy identified the problem the moment I acknowledged it and confessed it to Him in prayer. He then began the awesome work of healing and restoration which has continued over the years. He is faithful to do exceedingly more than we can ever hope or imagine, for He is committed to do so when we place our trust in Him.
(1 Corinthians 2:9, Ephesians 3: 20-21, Isaiah 64:4, Philippians 1:6)
Now in the comfort and healing in which He comforted me I hope to comfort others in the same afflictions. (2 Corinthians 1: 3-7)
God’s love and mercy is everlasting. Call upon Him today. He will not delay for He is the Only WAY.
(John 14:6, Romans 10:13)
