Breaking Bread 1.12.22

Scripture

In the thirty-ninth year of his reign Asa was afflicted with a disease in his feet. Though his disease was severe, even in his illness he did not seek help from the lord, but only from the physicians. Then in the forty-first year of his reign Asa died and rested with his ancestors.

2 Chronicles 16:12-13

Reflection

Asa was afflicted with a foot disease that he chose to rely on physicians to heal him of, instead of God—the same God he claimed an allegiance, the same God he claimed to love and worship fully; the same God he claimed he trusted and believed in completely—yet when in pain and once fear took over him, he chose to turn to man first and not God.

Would your Creator not have a vested interest in your good health? So why do we rush to the things He created instead of coming to Him? We must learn to turn to God and listen for Him to guide us—not lean unto our own understanding. Trust Him in all things and circumstances. Speak Truth to the lies the enemy tells you to lure you away from seeking God. Don’t doubt what our Father can and will do. Don’t be like Asa.

Prayer

Father, I have faith in You and Your ultimate ability to heal me of all afflictions no matter how big or small. I turn to You for my healing. I pray to You for all of my needs. You are my solution. You are my medicine. You are my healer. You are my mender. You are my restorer. Keep my mind and heart focused on You Lord. Keep me from straying when tempted to turn to man first for healing, and not to You. I will follow Your lead. In Your Name I pray. Amen.

God bless you!
