God Wants To Heal You
Throughout my time as an athlete, I've seen people getting injuries during the course of their game, mostly ankle sprain in the game of basketball. Personally, I'm very thankful that not even once did I sprain my ankle or suffer any physical injuries to the extent that I had to stop playing.
For those who are familiar with the bible will know that there are many instances of miracle healing in the past compared to the present where we rarely see miracle healing. I do believe that God has his plan to heal us even in the present and it exist in the form of medical science. One point i wish to bring across is that God's healing is not always just about healing us physically, God wants to heal us emotionally as well.
This became especially clear to me at the start of this year. I failed 2 of my modules last semester and as a results I had to 'da bao' them, adding on 4 new modules which I am required to clear. Hoping not to repeat the same mistake, I literally studied like never before. Not because I had to clear 6 modules but because of the fact that I have never put in as much effort in studying as I did now. As a result, with 2 months left till exam, I just felt that my mind was already full but with plenty more to cover, I'm bound to flunk my exam. It was when I was feeling so down and out when a verse which I've seen throughtout my 4 years in secondary came to my mind.
Isaiah 40:31 'But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.'
This verse that was printed on the wall of my school hall reminded me that as long as I trust in the Lord, no matter how tough I'm pushing myself, be it walking, running or soaring high on wings, I will find new strength in Him.
Therefore to conclude, I just have 3 points to say where we have a part to play and that is to Believe, Release and Receive.
Trust that God’s Word is true and He wants to completely heal you of all your hurts.
Give your hurts to God and leave them in His hands . We can’t receive healing if we’re still holding on to those past hurts or living with unforgiveness in our hearts.
Walk in your healing . Live differently than before . Trust that God has really taken those hurts away and has given you the opportunity for a renewed life.
