Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security. JEREMIAH 33:6.
Benefits are things we stand to gain when we painstakingly, without fail fix our attention to Christ the savior of the world.
One amazing thing about the person of Jesus, is that he can never treat you with contempt if you truly belong to him, and that is why is pertinent to expose ourselves to things we can gain when we look unto him.
Out of many benefits, we handpicked just two, which are strength and healing, Strength is a state of being physically strong, while healing is the process of becoming healthy
The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah the second time, perhaps, God earlier promise was eagerly anticipated by the people of God and Jeremiah inclusive but it took a long while to be fulfilled, which might made them lost hope, but God spoke with every assurance to Jeremiah, firstly He told him what to do Jer.33:3, and secondly He reassured him that he will redeem and restore His people and will visit them with healing and security, In the face of their threatening situation.
Looking unto Jesus is the possible way out to all human challenges, and when you permanently look up to him, is a simple way of saying you do not have your own power, and you totally depend on him.
In our most difficult time, the pressing tool we need is strength that is why the book of Prov.24:10 says, if you falter in a time of trouble, how small is your strength.
Physical weakness makes us vulnerable to all sorts of satanic tricks and pranks, which may likely attract the wrath of God. But when we are strengthen spiritually we are fortified and empowered to shave off weakness and weariness and keep hope alive in God alone.
The word of God brought strength to Jeremiah and the people of the land, even before they experienced the real deliverance, there is no limit to what the word of God can achieve in our lives, if we truly read and apply it to our situations, the closer you are to the word of God the stronger you shall become to face tough situation. Hebrews 4:12, Isaiah 40:29.
Whatever you are passing through, find strength in God from His word, it helps greatly.
When we are spiritually and physically strong and strengthened, the divine healing flows in very easily, because naturally wariness brings instability to the mind and negatively affects every part of our being but the moment you are on the Lord side, your healing is guaranteed.
A very quick reelection to the life of King Hezekiah, who was told that he would die from an ailment, bible says he turned to God, not Isaiah the prophet, not deceivers under the guise of prophets of God, He went to God with fervent prayer and requested for divine healing and God granted him additional fifteen years. 2 kings 20:1-6.
Lamentation 3:37 says, who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass, when the Lord commandeth it not? Every spoken word working against the original plan of God for your life shall be thwarted.
Whatever you are faithfully trusting God for, receive it accordingly in Jesus name.
