Psalm 41 is a powerful testament to healing. It asks for, demands, believes fully in healing.
I love praying for the sick and visiting the hospitals. Not as much as Wallace, but I love it. There is power in those prayers and in those rooms. But honestly, I choose my words wisely. I want to claim healing, but I don't ever want someone to be dissappointed in God because the healing didn't come. I don't want to claim that God WILL heal, when I really mean God CAN heal. Maybe its just as much that I don't want someone to think I'm not powerful in my prayers. Maybe I'm afraid my prayers will be lacking if healing doesn't come.
So, I gulp extra hard when it says, in verse 3, "The lord will strengthen them whenthey are lying in bed, sick. You will completely transformt eh place where they lie ill."
I don't understand healing, but I thought Psalm 41 answered so many of my questions, "Just like the deep that craves the streams of water, my whole being craves you!" (42:1) "Hope in God! Because I will again give3 him thanks, my saving presence and my God!" (vs. 5) "Deep called to deep at the noise of your waterfalls; all your massive waves surged over me!" (vs.7).
Why do I worry so much! Let God do it! Hope in God. Let God heal. Let bad things happen--God is still there! The deep calls to deep and God is there. Let his mercy and healing run over you like the water. Where ever you are hurting, let God heal you. I believe it. God is so good!
