I AM THE LORD WHO HEALS YOU (Exodus 15:26).

Let us consider these; What does healing mean? Who needs healing? I tried to get the definition of healing and got many definitions like these few ones;
1. To make healthy, whole, or sound; restore to health; free from ailment. 2. To bring to an end or conclusion, as conflicts between people or groups, usually with the strong implication of restoring former amity; settle; reconcile: 3. To free from evil; cleanse; purify: to heal the soul.
4. To effect a cure. 5. To become whole or sound; mend; get well.
From these definitions, we see that healing has to do with disease or something that causes discomfort. Disease is an abnormal condition affecting the body of an organism. "disease" is often used more broadly to refer to any condition that causes pain, dysfunction, distress, social problems, and/or death to the person afflicted, or similar problems for those in contact with the person.
From the above, we can see that we all need some kind of healing in our lives. Disease can be anything that is able to distract your attention from your normal way of life; unemployment, locating your soul mate, poverty, illness, barrenness, to mention just few.
This wonderful verse tells us that no matter what it is that we’re suffering from, that there is one ready to heal us. As of when this verse was written (the Old Testament era), there was not much hope until He came Himself to take all away (Isaiah 10:27; Matthew 11:29-30; Nahum 1:13).
Often times, we’re not patient enough to allow this healing to fully take place. If one carefully studies Exodus 14; one can see that for the Lord to terminate the problem of the Egyptians, the children of Israel had to be pushed to the position of hopelessness. I want you to see Matthew 14:25-31. Here Peter did what no man has ever done sine life began (walked on water).
In verses 28-31, we read; “28. And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. 29. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. 30. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. 31. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?”
Peter took his eyes off the Lord and was sinking but was wise enough to call for help. Do you still have your eyes focused on the LORD? Are you about to sink or sinking? Where is your position now? The Healer is always there when you call (Malachi 3:3).
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool [(Isaiah 1:18) (NIV)].
PRAYER POINT
LORD, here I stand before you with (name area(s) you need a touch of healing) asking you to wash me clean according to your Word and lift me up from drowning as you lifted Peter. Thank you LORD because I am now healed (above and not below).
