The Mercy of Healing
The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. — PSALM 103:8
In Psalm 103, we see again that David believed that the mercy of healing was as universal a privilege as the mercy of forgiveness. He calls upon his soul to bless God. He said, “Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who FORGIVETH all thine iniquities; who HEALETH all thy diseases” (Ps. 103:1–3). The phrase “who healeth all” is just as permanent as the phrase “who forgiveth all.”
When we talk about healing, some people will say, “But healing was just for those people back then.” But those same people believe that God still forgives all that come to Him today! Most people understand that truth.
Well, if people believe that God still forgives all iniquities, they ought to believe that He still heals all diseases. And if they don’t believe that He heals all diseases, I can’t say that they have any right to believe that He forgives all iniquities. I want you to notice this: God puts forgiving sins and healing sickness on the same level.
Confession: God still forgives sins today. Therefore, God still heals sick bodies today. Thank You, God, for Your mercy and compassion to heal all my diseases.
