The vigor of youth often breeds self-reliance. The concept of praying for healing is not relative, especially if good health has always been maintained. Thus, many young people will continue to press on without relying on God’s power to survive.
Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise, Jeremiah 17:14.
Jeremiah is known as the weeping prophet. This nickname comes from the messages Jeremiah often shared with Israel. The majority of the prophecies he receives from God we negative, focused on pending doom and punishment. Yet, there are some rays of hope, illustrating the power of prayer.
Behold, I will bring to it health and healing, and I will heal them and reveal to them abundance of prosperity and security, Jeremiah 33:6.
As for me, the older I become the more I need God’s help to get through each day. Over the last week, my vision has faded, unable to see or read letters unless the font is 48 is bigger. While I may need glasses, I still believe and cling to God’s power to deliver miracles. Whatever mountain standing in your way, may you find hope in God’s power to transform your current situation.
