IS THERE NO BALM IN GILEAD?

Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then is not the health of the daughter of my people restored? [Because Zion no longer enjoyed the presence of the Great Physician!] (Jeremiah 8:22 AMP)

Healing and health is the children’s bread and from the Old Testament, we see this as part of the covenant for those under God’s covering. Going into the New Testament, when Jesus begins His ministry announcing the Good News, He was against the bondage that the devil had imposed on the people. He cast out demons, healed the sick and preached the gospel.

Jeremiah laments in the Old Testament, perplexed by the amount of sickness that surrounded him. From his words we may glean some reasons why the people remained sick yet when they left Egypt, they were in perfect health and had promises from God for divine health. He poses a question, is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no Physician there? He is not asking for medical science but spiritual solutions! Balm stands for medicine but to Jeremiah’s wonder, why was the health of the people not restored?They had resorted to other solutions but not the great Physician! They had sought other gods which were really Satan at work.

When the covering of the Physician is absent, the devil brings all sorts of disease and sickness upon the people. He is the author of the same. It is important to therefore bring yourself under the covering of the physician. He is the one who is able to bring to pass all the promises of divine health in your life.

Jesus is the Physician, His healing promises are the balm. We need to hold on to these promises, stand upon them in faith and believe that He is able to fulfill His word and promises upon your life. Jesus kept saying to those He healed, “thy faith has made the whole.” It doesn’t matter your struggle today, look up to the great Physician whose ministry exposed the devil’s work of bringing sickness upon the people. These promises will work when you put yourself under His covering, Him alone. Give your life to the Lord and walk under His guidance.

There is a balm in Gilead and a Physician there, His name is Jesus Christ. I encourage you to put yourself under His covering, follow His instructions and you will be a witness of His faithfulness. Declare His healing promises over your life and you will witness the same grace the people saw when He came to announce the gospel.

I pray for you that every form of sickness and pain be removed from your life as you surrender your life to the great physician.

Declare this,
I thank you Father for giving the great Physician and the balm of Gilead. I bring myself under the cover of the great Physician and I thank you for all manner of sickness is departing from me in Jesus’ name.
