“Seek the Lord and live, lest He break out like fire in the house of Joseph, and it devour it, with no one to quench it in Bethel.” Amos 5:6
“Seek THE LORD and live,” the Bible says. So many times the sick make the mistake of seeking for HEALING when they should be seeking THE HEALER. Do not seek HEALING – seek THE LORD! Do not seek His blessings – seek THE BLESSER! Do not seek the gif t- seek the GIVER of the gift! That is the secret!
How does a person receive salvation? Not by seeking salvation, but by seeking the Savior. Many have sought for salvation and have never found it. But if you seek the Savior, you will find Jesus; and when you find Jesus, you will find salvation. Jeremiah 29:13 declares, “And you will SEEK ME and FIND ME, when you search for Me with all your heart.” In the very same way, many have sought for HEALING and have never received it. But I have learned that if you seek THE HEALER, you will find the healing that you need.
It is impossible to find Jesus and not find salvation as well. After all, Jesus IS the Savior. You can’t have one without also having the other! In the very same way, it is impossible to find Jesus and not also find healing. After all, Jesus IS the healer! In Exodus 15:26 He reveals that His name is Jehovah Rophe, the Lord our healer. Healing is not something that God has, it is SOMEONE He is!
So, stop seeking healing and start seeking the healer! Don’t pray or read the Bible just because you need healing. Seek God for the purpose of knowing His healing presence and His healing nature. When you draw close to HIM, He will draw close to you! (See James 4:8)
Prayer: Lord, draw me close to You. Help me to be a seeker of Your presence and nature. I want to not only know You as my Savior, but I want to know You as my Healer as well. I thank You that You said in Your word that if I seek You with all my heart, I will find You.
