Jesus is the Balm in Gilead

Have you ever had a heart so broken that you knew you would never be the same? The one who created that heart has the power to mend it and make you new. He can give you the Oil of Joy for mourning, that is the Balm of Gilead - Jesus Christ.

So, dear Friends, don't be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through, as if something strange were happening to you. Instead, be very glad for these trials make you partners with Christ in His suffering, so that you will have the wonderful joy of seeing His Glory when it is revealed to all the world.

So be happy when you are insulted for being a Christian, for then the Glorious Spirit of God rests upon you. If you suffer, however, it must not be for Murder, Stealing, Making Trouble, or Prying into other people's affairs. But it is no shame to suffer for being a Christian.

Praise God for the Privilege of being called by His Name! for the time has come for Judgment, and it must begin with God's Household. And if Judgment begins with us, what terrible fate awaits those who have never obeyed God's Good News? Also, "If the righteous are barely saved, what will happen to godless sinners?"

So if you are suffering in a manner that pleases God keep on doing what is right, and trust your lives to the God who created you, for He will never fail you. (1Peter 4:12-19-NLT)

Now, listen to this song by Richard Smallwood and begin to thank the Lord Jesus for your healing!



Thank God for putting you through the storm and holding your hand through it all. God knows what we can handle, and what we can bare. He will see us through every storm.

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new" (2Cor. 5:17).
