Healing · Psalm 103 · Sin

psalm 103… an Easter perspective… part two…

Yesterday started a series…
one unplanned…
one entered into by faith…
Psalm 103… an Easter perspective…

Today… part two…

Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits —
who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases…
Psalm 103:2-3
I had some today…
both sins… and… diseases…
Let me explain…
I wasn’t physically ill…
but several years ago… I can’t remember where now…
I read a teaching… where they broke down the word disease
to it’s two parts… dis… ease…

It really spoke to my heart…
and it hasn’t left my mind…
dis-ease… isn’t that what every illness is…?
whether it’s physical…? emotional…? spiritual…?
Our ease is no more… it’s been disturbed…
turned upside down…
the prefix dis-… means opposite of…
So I experienced some spiritual dis-ease this morning…
on account of sin…
Sinful thoughts… attitudes… causing much dis-ease in my spirit…
I didn’t act on any of the corrupt thoughts…
but they effected me just the same…
What a blessing… what ease can be had…
to know… in Jesus… all our sins are forgiven…!
all our dis-eases healed…!
The prayer went out…
Jesus… forgive me my selfishness… and arrogance…
forgive this darkness bubbling up in my heart…
Take captive every thought… make it obedient to You…

In Him… He not only forgives… but brings healing…
to those places in our hearts… 
dark things we might not even see…
He reveals… and deals with…
A question has also been set before Him…
What is the root of this darkness…?
Reveal it… Heal it… 
Amen…

In Him… we need not stay in a state of dis-ease over anything…
sin… physical illness… emotional distress… spiritual upheaval…
By the power of His Spirit… in faith…
we can invite Him in…
for forgiveness… and healing…
Amen… Amen… and… Amen…
What sin…? what dis-ease…? do you need to bring to Him…?
