Wellbeing thought for Friday 19 Feb
Physical Healing
You may be struggling with a short- or long-term sickness. Sickness was never God’s original intention. The Bible describes our current reality as a ‘fallen world’ that is less than God’s best. One of God’s names is “Yahweh-Rapha”, ‘The Lord is our healer’. One of the remarkable aspects of Jesus’ life was his healing ministry. When he died on the cross he did it to undo all the effects of the Fall, and after the Holy Spirit was poured out on his disciples at Pentecost, Christians continued his healing ministry. We often don’t experience divine healing in this life, but we have the promise that at the resurrection of the dead – when Jesus comes back, we will receive resurrection bodies without sickness!
> Pray this wellbeing prayer from 3 John 2 – for yourself and other people: “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”
