Health Food Devotions
Jesus Is Your Healer
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases. —PSALM 103:2–3
I remember reading the testimony of Dr. A.B. Simpson, founder of the Christian Missionary Alliance. He was a Presbyterian minister and pastor, and in his mid-forties, he developed a serious heart condition. The best specialist of that day said nothing could be done for him.
Dr. Simpson knew nothing at all about the subject of healing. He had never examined the Bible on that subject, even though he was a minister of the Gospel and a graduate of a seminary. Now many in his own Presbyterian church congregation had testified of being healed. And he knew they were healed, because he knew something about their conditions.
So he decided to take a leave of absence from his church and go back to his farm, where every single day, he spent ten to twelve hours examining the Scriptures on the subject of healing. He would take his Bible and a notebook and get away from the house. He would sit in the sunshine under a tree, out in the fresh air. He would lean back against the tree with his Bible and notebook and make notes.
After two weeks of doing that, he became convinced that divine healing belonged to him. So without being any better, with all of his heart symptoms, he wrote down the following: Having studied the Word of God and having come to see that healing for the physical body is ours today just as much as the remission and forgiveness of sins, I now accept Jesus as my Healer.
I am a believer, not a doubter. God’s Word belongs to me. I accept that Word and acknowledge that God’s Word is truth. I will not forget all His benefits. He is my Healer, and according to the Word of God, I’m healed. I receive that healing today.
