There are many people who have been given a diagnosis they did not want to hear. Cancer is the first one that comes to mind. It’s a horrific diagnosis to be given. It scares you to death because you don’t know what the future holds. Will it involve surgery or chemotherapy? Your life seems held in the hands of the doctors. You feel you are at their mercy. Let’s face it. You are.
We do not like to be given bad news regarding our health. No one does. In the Bible, Jesus talked about the woman with the issue of blood. She was healed by touching the hem of Jesus’ garment. Jesus healed blind men, deaf men, lepers, demon possessed people and paralyzed people. He even raised people from the dead.
Jesus reversed their diagnosis. He was all about restoration; spiritual restoration, as well as physical restoration. Remember, when you are given a diagnosis; you wait upon the Lord. He is the healer of all our diseases. The Bible says it is by His stripes we are healed. We will either be healed now, later or in eternity.
Before we could be healed from our sin; we had to ask Jesus into our heart. He redeemed and restored the years the locusts have eaten. Lostness is a horrible diagnosis. It’s a death sentence, death to hell. We are meant for heaven, not hell. God does not wish for any man to perish without Him. His desire is for us to spend eternity with Him.
What is your diagnosis? I don’t mean your physical diagnosis; I mean your spiritual diagnosis. Search your heart; if you don’t know the answer to that question. I pray that you have a relationship with the Lord and your diagnosis is: “healed and destined for heaven.”
Prayer in Motion:
Thank you Lord for providing the cure for the diagnosis of sin. I know we all have sinned and fallen short of your glory. You came to seek and to save that which is lost. Thank You for making a way to overcome death and hell through believing on the Lord Jesus Christ. I love You Lord. In Jesus Name. Amen
