Psalm 16: 5-11 NKJV
O Lord, You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup;
You maintain my lot.
The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places;
Yes, I have a good inheritance.
I will bless the Lord who has given me counsel;
My heart also instructs me in the night seasons.
I have set the Lord always before me;
Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.
Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices;
My flesh also will rest in hope.
For You will not leave my soul in Sheol,
Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.
You will show me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore
Every man and woman awake on our planet has the opportunity to walk in the presence of God and live in the fullness of joy. He offers Himself freely and with no walls of separation. The altar of God is open for us. In His presence there is fullness of joy. In His presence there is fullness of peace. In His presence is life and life more abundant than we can imagine. In His presence is healing and restoration for mental strength, emotional comfort, physical wholeness, spiritual power, and relational unity.
In Psalm 16, the psalmist describes a great and balanced life before God and man. It is full of hope, faith, provision, joy, life, gladness, restoration, pleasure, and the presence of God. Wow. Who would not want that? Over the next few sessions, I’ll take these verses apart in regards to healing.
What is healing? Healing is the full establishment of body, soul, spirit, and relationships to the point of design. Whatever has taken a portion of our wholeness away from the center point of destined design by the crafted love of God is not health. Whenever we wander of our own volition into wrong decisions that harm any portion of our lives, we are not in health. Push from the enemy of our soul to disturb us with disease, discomfort, disenchantment, discouragement, or drain on endurance takes us away from full health. Interaction with the world and people can result in strife and discord in relationship and take us away from wholesome health.
Healing is a normal process of taking us in any and all areas to God’s place of destined design and balance for us.
Healing is also a supernatural process of allowing God to reach through our pains and problems and restore us with the same power that He raised Christ from the dead.
Whether reached with normal process or supernatural process, we want to be healed, right? We want to be at the place of destined and created balance. For the balanced and healthy Believer health is daily maintained by living in the presence and instruction of God and supernaturally and daily restored by the same. Life happens. It interrupts wholesome healthy living. God has made provision.
Healing is the real experience of walking with God that was originally designed for mankind. Adam and Eve lived in that place where disease and curse and pain was absent. They walked with God. Enoch walked with God. Moses walked with God. Elijah walked with God. They moved in and out. Jesus walks with God. He never moved out. We have opportunity to live in Jesus. In Jesus, we can walk with God. He sent His Holy Spirit to live in us and through us and never leave us. He is available.
Prayer: Father, it is evident by Your history with us and Your words to us that You are committed to health and healing. You are the Creator of Life and the Lover of Mankind. You are the God of Healing as You reveal Yourself to us throughout Your history before Christ became man with Israel and through Christ, both God and man, to all mankind. You are committed to healing through establishing means of dispensing Your healing and restorative grace in prayer through men cooperating with You.
Be a healer to me and to my friends today, Father. Our world is tumultuous. It is out of balance. We need You. We need You to be with us. Walk with us. Talk with us. Bring us into balance in all areas of our life that we might give the praise and honor and glory back to you.
