"For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black; astonishment hath taken hold on me. Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?"
Today's Morsel:I'm apalled at the number of pharmacies I now see. Even inside of department stores and grocery stores are pharmacies. Why is there so many people sick or having such chronic pain and diseases that we need a pharmacy on every corner? You know the Greek word for witchcraft is pharmakeia, far-mak-i'-ah; medication(“pharmacy”). I often wonder how my parents, grandparents and great grandparents make it without such places. They didn't have the money for doctors, so how did they make it through? I believe more than anything, they placed their trust in the Lord and prayed to God for healing and deliverance. Has the church lost her ability? Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there, the Lord asked? Are we putting our trust more in man when it should be in the Lord? Have we chosen man's ways over the Lord's? Many are putting their credit card into a medical ATM for more pills, and the machine is giving them what they are asking for but without the healing or help. Why aren't my people healed, the Lord asked? Where have we erred? Where are the true apothecaries? Doesn't the Word tell us that by His stripes we are healed? Why aren't we calling on the elders of the church the way the Word tells us? "Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him" (James 5:14-15). Always remember, satan is subtil with his ways are contrary to the ways of God. Jesus ripped the curtain open so you could see what was behind the veil. Satan conceals what is behind his.
Sing: There is healing in the name of Jesus! There is healing in the name of Jesus! There is healing in the name of Jesus! To break every chain, to break every chain, to break every chain.
