Live Love Devo 10: Healing

Healing began immediately after the encounter with God in my kitchen. There were wounds in my heart, soul, and spirit that were deep and nearing infection. It must be why God stepped in when He did. The initial stages of infection were making an appearance. The prayers of my parents, family, and friends moved God to emanate the situation and counteract the infection before it got too serious.

At this part in my journey, it’s hard to sequence the learning because there were a few things that were happening at the same time, but today, we focus on healing.

I didn’t have a physical illness, but I did have a serious soul issue. Darkness was coming in and making my soul and spirit dark. That one encounter with God initiated an incredible healing.

When God’s love embraced me, a healing balm was placed into each wound. The main healing property in this balm is Love and it’s that property that extinguished the infection so that the wounds could be properly dealt with to heal.

Verse of the Day

But it was because of our rebellious deeds that he was pierced and because of our sins that he was crushed. He endured the punishment that made us completely whole, and in his wounding we found our healing.

Isaiah 53::4 (tPt)

Prayer of the Day

Father, may your ointment of Love come upon any wound I may have in my body, soul, spirit, and/or heart so that healing may take place. I know that your love for me secures me and it extinguishes all evil, darkness, lie, and fear in my life. So I declare that your River of Love flow through me overwhelming me with healing.

Song of the Day

Today I share a song in Portuguese I sang growing up. You can find the English translation at the very bottom of this devotional.

Balm of Gilead (English Lyrics for Song of the Day)

Come, Let us return to the Lord
For He Has Torn Us Apart And Will Heal Us
Made The Wound And Will Call Her
It Will Strengthen Us And Live Before Him

There’s A Balm In Gilead
There Is Anointing In Gilead
Come Upon Me To Heal
Comes Over The Daughter Of Zion
There’s A Doctor In Gilead
There’s Medicine In Gilead
Come Upon Me To Heal
Restores The Daughter of Zion

There’s A Balm In Gilead
There Is Anointing In Gilead
Come Upon Me To Heal
Comes Over The Daughter Of Zion

There’s A Doctor In Gilead
There’s Medicine In Gilead
Come Upon Me To Heal
Restores The Daughter of Zion
Come, Let us return to the Lord
