Midweek Morsel: Healed By His Word

“He sent forth his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave.” Psalm 107:20

Our recent celebration of Easter reminded us that Jesus “was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5) Praise God for the healing that comes from his wounds!

But not only are we healed by his wounds, the verse above from Psalm 107 points out that we are healed by his word as well. When the pain is great, when defeat looms large, when confusion rules, our precious Father sends his word to heal us and to minister to us.

He’s done if for me time and again when my need has been great. He’s sent the healing touch of his word in a variety of ways—everything from my daily Bible reading to a fellow blogger’s post. The avenue can vary, but his word stands the same. And his word heals.

Praise God for the healing that comes from his word!

“When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart’s delight, for I bear your name O LORD God Almighty.” Jeremiah 15:16

*How has God sent his healing word to you?

  1. God has sent his healing word through a friend, my pastor, and in my Bible Studies.

  2. Great examples, Nanette. Another example — God has sent his healing word to me through songs also.

  3. I love Jeremiah 15:16 ““When your words came, I ate them.” What a precious verse! Nothing like gobbling on God’s word when we are starving and in distress.

  4. I love that verse, too, Nancy. Thanks for sharing!
