God sent out His Word and Healed Them

There are times that suffering, sickness, and even grief due to some form of loss can feel like an eternity. Even our bodies fade away as we get older and the aches and pains increase as the years go by. When the Israelites traveled through the wilderness desert all they did was whine and complain. God why did you bring us out here to leave us!

There are times in our pain we can legitimately complain and whine to the Lord, but it should not be chronic and God should not be the one to blame.

Our sicknesses and illnesses stress us out due to a lot of things such as finances. The bills don’t stop even when we are out of work. The work sick days are used up and the roof just started leaking. Perhaps you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a terminal illness where suddenly your lives change drastically. Cancer sucks and is no respecter of persons or age. You keep asking what am I going to do now?

Then they (Israel) cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He sent out his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave.
Psalms 107:19‭-‬20 NIV

Its okay and actually healthy to cry to the Lord. I don’t mean having a pity party such as, why me Lord, but trusting God and releasing our emotions.

The Lord knows your distresses and He knows your need. When Jesus healed, he was ‘moved with compassion’ yet not everybody was physically or emotionally healed.

Notice, ‘God sent out His Word and healed them’. There are no magic formulas with God and He does not like to be manipulated. Even the devil gets a whole lot of blame for our troubles and distress. Enough!

I believe in miracles and that ‘all things are possible to them who believe’. Yet, loved ones die and we ourselves experience loss. Job’ lost everything yet He still trusted his Maker. ” Though He slay me yet I will trust Him”.

It speaks volumes and takes faith to trust the Lord even when the news is so bad. It tells me the person has confidence in God and that He is surely in control even in the midst of death.

God is soveriegn and there are no easy answers or formulas with Him. I do believe in the power of prayer, but there are times when God’s ultimate healing and comfort such as when He takes a loved one or us home to glory.

Friend stay strong because in the end it will be worth it when we see Jesus. Ask Him into your heart today, if you never have before. Pray that he will give you all the strength and grace you need during this difficult time. The Lord will be waiting.

Have a positive day and week my friend.

Greetings! My name is Andy Provitola and I live in New England on the south shore between Boston and the beautiful Cape Cod region. The purpose of my blogging and writing is to encourage you in your journey here on planet earth. Life is full of pressing issues and problems and my desire is to discover a place for peace, hope, healing, and contentment. I am a follower of Jesus Christ – God’s one and only Son of God and discovered these truths along my own personal journey. Having discovered a personal relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ does not mean I have to be religious to attain the rewards of heaven. The fact is God provides grace for us and accepts us as we are in His image. In other words, we cannot attain heaven or life eternal on our own, but by God’s loving grace and no merit of our own. My goal is to continue to find a balance of life from a spiritual and practical perspective with a purpose to please and glorify God in all that I do because of His ‘Gift of Grace’. God is not transcendent and so far away that he is out of reach with humanity. God desires that His presence lives within us and not just in the galaxies and the universe. Experiencing the unconditional love of God has been so rewarding and while discovering the truth and purpose for my life. Moving forward in this life is not a sprint, but a marathon when it comes to this race here on earth. I am blogging because I find it is a good way to connect in a much more effective and efficient way when it comes to communicating and interacting with with people that I do not know. Blogging and writing challenges me and also stretches me specifically in my thoughts, my mind, my emotions, and my spiritual life to live a vertical relation with God and a horizontal relationship with others. There will be a variety of topics and subjects to address including youth, young adults, family, singles, seniors, relationships, etc. Some of the topics will include God’s creation and power, depression, loneliness, suicide, hope, healing, setbacks, financial matters, business, stress, anxiety, care, encouragement, and so much more I would like to connect with all walks of life, ethnicity, culturally, other religions, socio-economics, and more I am currently writing a book and several memoirs about my own life and journey . The journey begins at a young age growing up in Malden, Massachusetts, specifically Maplewood Square to where I am today. I became paralyzed from the waist down as a senior in high school and I share how my life changed for the better! “But I do not consider my life as something of value or dear to me, so that I may [with joy] finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus. To testify faithfully of the good news of God’s [precious undeserved] grace [which makes us free of guilt of sin and grants us eternal life]. Acts 20:24 Amplified Version
