God, Come and Set My Heart on Fire for You by Lynne Hammond


Today's featured devotional...
heartbeathealingTeaching on healing can be fraught with peril because some of us have believed God for healing and not seen the results we’ve wanted. Why do some people seem to get healed and others don’t?

So I’m just going to talk about me. Because healing IS in the Bible, and Jesus DID die to heal us! It’s in our covenant, and it’s good news!

When I was 18 years old, my mother died of cancer. I was newly saved and had barely heard about healing — just enough to know it was maybe possible. So my prayer was, “God, please heal my mom! Please!” And then she died. It seemed as though praying for healing didn’t work.

Well, here are three things I’ve learned about healing since then:

#1 - I don’t have to beg God. To Him, healing is already done. I didn’t know that back then. Now I’ve learned that God’s very nature is healing. He healed under the Old Covenant (Exodus 15:26, Isaiah 53:4,5), and then He sealed the deal through Jesus on the Cross under the New Covenant (1 Pet. 2:24, Matt. 8:17).

God’s will has always been the same. He’s never been conflicted about it. He’s a healing God. And I found out that Jesus is not going to the Cross again to heal me, any more than He’s going to the Cross again to save anyone. It is finished! We are the healed of the Lord. He’s done all He’s going to do (Heb. 10:10).

Now I no longer wonder if it’s God will to heal. I can’t receive if I’m wondering. I have to go by God’s Word and know that it’s absolutely His will, His nature, and His plan to heal. That’s why He included it in my redemption. Naturally, I wouldn’t beg for something that already belongs to me.

So I know what you’re thinking, how can I access this ‘done deal’ healing? What good is it to me if it’s not working my life?! Read on.

#2 - God is a faith God. I receive healing by believing. In other words, God’s part is healing, and my part is believing. When I prayed for my mom all those years ago, I didn’t know that. I was wishing and hoping for healing, not believing that Jesus had already purchased it (Mark 9:23, Mark 5:36, Rom. 10:17, 1 John 5:4).
