The Greatest Healing of ALL TIME!

Let's talk about the GREATEST healing of all time! I came across it in the scripture below:

When Israel was a child [a young nation], I (God) loved him, and I called my son out of Egypt. The more they [the prophets] called them [to repentance and obedience], the more they went away from them. They kept sacrificing to the Baals (false gods) and burning incense to the carved images (idols). Yet it is I who taught Ephraim (Israel) to walk, taking them in My arms; But they did not know I healed them. I led them gently with cords of a man, with bonds of love [guiding them]... (Hosea 11:1-4a, AMP)

Y'all all I did was see myself in this scripture when I read it and I had to start praising and glorifying God! The Lord describes the nation of Israel as His son that He set free from years of slavery in Egypt. Yet, despite His love and compassion toward them and calling them to repent and give their hearts to Him, they neglected God and continued to worship the false god of Baal and other idol images. Then God continues to explain how HE is the one who healed them and they didn't know. How did He heal them? With the cords of a man. What are the cords of a man? The thing that leads and draws a human being: LOVE! This wrecked me when I read it because that was me! I was rebellious and made myself the god of my life. I worshiped every decision that would benefit me and my desires first. Although my heart was sinful and selfish, God led me into a relationship with His Son Jesus Christ through the one thing I needed most, LOVE.

The children of Israel were exposed to a lot of diseases while in Egypt and with this being pre-modern medicine, many of these would be deemed "incurable" just because man didn't create a medicine for it yet. However, God's power SUPERSEDES that of man! God is the CREATOR and the SUSTAINER of the body. He doesn't have to wait until man made medicine and research catches up to the needs of the human body. He taught His people how to walk, as a father does a child, then took them in His arms and healed them as they went. What makes it the greatest healing is that it was two fold. The Lord saw their bodies were sick, but also their hearts from their rebellion. By drawing near to them and cradling them in His arms, God loved them. He forgave them. He showed them mercy and grace and gave them what no man made medicine could ever do: A SECOND CHANCE.

Similar to the Israel, when the Lord took me up in His arms on January 2, 2012 and started leading me with love, I didn't know in that moment my healing began. I was praying for physical healing, but had no idea God started healing me from all the brokenness that was inside me. The love and forgiveness of God is the greatest medicine a human being could ever receive. What if God just healed my body and left my heart the way it was? What if I never received the spiritual, heart healing I truly needed? I know 2 things that would happen: 1) You would never know the testimony or being reading Hope Letters for your own testimony 2) I would continue to live as my own god and sin and be on the fast track to hopelessness and hell.

We are born sinners and our sin breaks our relationship with God. It damages and brings illness and ailment to our connection with the Father. However, God created the medicine that no scientist, doctor, or psychiatrist could ever create: FORGIVENESS. God wants to start healing your soul TODAY. Will you take the medicine? Will you repent of your sin and accept Jesus Christ as your Savior?

May your hope be in Jesus Christ,
