“Healing will always stand aside when it would be seen as threat. The instant it is welcome it is there. (M-6-2)”
1 – Don’t Retain the Pain
We take a lot of interest in our physical and emotional health, perhaps especially when either is compromised. The more interest we devote to pain, the more likely we may be to retain the pain. But Jesus would not have it this way. Yet he stands aside when that is our choice.
2 – Levels of Our Mind
We do not have access to all levels of our minds. And it is this that seems to be implied in the passage for today. We think we want healing, but do we really? Are we getting something, some benefit, from our compromised health? This is a question that all of us would do well to ponder as each new ailment rises on the horizon.
3 – Emotional Healing
The healing that will be there immediately may not be viewed by the physical eyes. But all of us have known miraculous emotional healing when one turned the matter over to God. We have seen this in ourselves, and we have seen this in others. There is probably no exception to this miracle. We have made emotional healing a priority, and we have admitted that we do not know how to bring it about. So we turn it over, and, there, in a place that we do not often see, is the healing that we have prayed to have.
4 – The Best
Could we wish for anything less today for ourselves and others?
I would have emotional and physical healing, beginning immediately. I do not ask in arrogance, but in humility. You want me well; you want me to learn through rewards, not pain. Let me leave any and all discomfort aside today.
Thank You that my health has always, with a few exceptions, been good. As I grow older, I ask for the same.
Be with me today as I seek to walk Your pathway of healing, physical and emotional.
