Bless the LORD, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases, Psa 103:2-3
We have no trouble realizing and receiving that every single one of our iniquities have been forgiven by the LORD. But it is just as true that every single one of our diseases has been healed by the LORD. Isn’t that what the true Word of God says? It is part of the benefits package, if you will, of being in covenant with the LORD our God.
Diseases are like Canaanites and giants, rising up to oppose us. God did not just twang the Canaanites and giants that Israel faced, and make them disappear so that Israel could possess their promise unopposed. They had to be strong and courageous, and possess their possession! Joshua – YESHUA – has given us that Promise(d Land) by His blood! Let us drive that Canaanite out and possess the health we have been given!
Of course, later in the Psalm, David says:
But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting
On those who fear Him,
And His righteousness to children’s children,
To such as keep His covenant,
And to those who remember His commandments to do them. Psa 103:17-18
So many of God’s commandments were given to promote our health! The dietary laws, do not eat animal fat, do not covet [food or drink] — wash with water after coming into contact with uncleanness, rest on the Sabbath and feast days — even commands such as “Fear not” — all these apply to health (among other things).
We learned that the Torah was given to us to keep so that we would have physical life. If we are believing Him to heal all our diseases, let us also keep His covenant, and remember His commandments to do them. Beloved, let us trust God as we are doing, and add to our trust obedience to all the LORD’s commandments, and the mercy of the LORD will be from everlasting to everlasting upon us who fear (to disobey) Him!
