802nd -- True Healing


With the many stresses that come our way on a daily basis, it is amazing 
to me how many people choose to trust in their own intellect rather than 
going to the One who created them and has every answer that their heart 
seeks. The Lord Jesus Christ says throughout His Word “Come to Me and I 
will give you rest.” There is no reason for any of us to go anywhere else
except to Jesus Christ who loves us and gave His life so that we may live 
eternally. His love is infinite. Only love that is unsearchable would be
willing to take the sins of the world and replace it with forgiveness, joy,
and peace that is unspeakable. The one who comes to Jesus is not losing 
anything, but they are gaining everything. They put off the old man and 
they put on the New Man. The Lord changes us very subtly; He takes away 
our old ways and puts change in our hearts and minds. It happened to me 
and I can tell you that following Jesus since I was 19 years old has been 
the best decision I have ever made. (Matthew 11:28-30) (Colossians 3:8-11)

If you are finding yourself restless, discouraged, disheartened, anxious 
and not seeing the joys of life, I encourage you to call upon the Lord 
just as you are and ask Him to change you and mold you into His perfect 
vessel. Never think that you must cleanse yourself first and then come to
the Lord. That is backward thinking. We come to the Lord with our flaws 
and all and He is the One who cleanses us. We come to Him filthy and 
unworthy and He puts on us a robe of righteousness. We don't deserve such
grace, but thankfully it exists to all who call upon the name of the Lord
in truth. Know that He loves you and waits with open arms for you to call
upon Him. (Romans 10:9-13) (Isaiah 61:10) (Revelation 3:20)

I hope this message encourages your heart to know that God loves you and 
wishes for you to follow Him. He will make the changes that you cannot 
make and lead your life onto the path that is rightly chosen for you.


My son was wheezing and gasping for breath. I had never seen him so sick.
His face was pale and his irregular breathing pattern was very scary. I 
got worried and started to panic. I didn't even call the doctor's office 
for an appointment -- no time to waste!

I just bundled-up my son, David, and rushed him to the doctor's office. 
All that was going through my mind was “I have to get the doctor to see my
son immediately.”

When we reached the doctor's office, I was not happy because there were so
many other people waiting to see the doctor. The nurse checked my son and
said he'll be okay -- you'll just have to “Wait” for your turn. Easy for 
her to say -- David wasn't her son. So, I did wait (I had to). My son 
still looked very, very sick to me.

Finally, I took a deep breath and started looking at the faces of the 
other moms and dads in the waiting room. I could see a calm, relaxed and 
peaceful look on their faces. I guess they all knew that they were at the
doctor's office and that their turn would come, and they had faith that 
the doctor could heal their child, or at least make them feel better.

When I realized that, I said a little prayer, and I immediately started to
feel more at peace too. Just knowing I was in the “waiting room” at the 
doctor's office, who I believed could make David bounce back to normal made
me feel better, and calmed my panicking heart. I knew that everything was
under control, and even my son looked like he was getting better already.

In the same way, if we are worried and restless because of other 
uncontrollable problems in our life, we should rush to the “waiting room”
of Jesus. Yes, we will probably have to “Wait” there too. But when the 
time is right, He will take care of all our needs.

We panic when we try to do everything on our own and are far away from 
Him. So, get closer to Him by going to His “waiting room,” through prayer.
When we pray and wait upon the Lord we can definitely feel the peace and 
security that only He can provide. Jesus is the only one who can truly 
help us. Besides that, He knows our every true need, and He will never 
fail us.

Addendum -- Matthew 11:28 “Then Jesus said,
Come to me, all of you who are
weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

John 3:16-17 Jesus declares
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His 
only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but 
have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn 
the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.”

1 Corinthians 2:9-10 “...Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have
entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them
that love Him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the 
Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.”

1 Peter 2:9-10 “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an Holy
nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who
hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous light: Which in time 
past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not 
obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.”

2 Timothy 4:7-8 “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I
have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of 
righteousness, which the Lord, the Righteous Judge, shall give me at that
day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
