This is Derek Prince with a word for you from the Word.

“O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.” (Psalm 30:2 NIV)

One of the things that blesses me about the Bible is its profound simplicity. It comes out with the most profound statements in the simplest and shortest words. What interests me as I glance at that verse that I’ve just presented to you, is that there is not a single word in it of more than one syllable. “O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.” And yet in those simple words of one syllable what tremendous truth is expressed.

I wonder if you realize that God is the healer of His people? In the second book of the Bible, Exodus, He says, ”I am the LORD that healeth thee”: I am the Lord, your doctor. And in the New Testament in the epistle of James, James writes, “Is there any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church, let them anoint him with oil and pray over him. The prayer of faith shall save the sick.” Are you carrying around some sickness, some physical oppression, some burden that the Lord would gladly relieve you of? Have you thought about calling to the Lord? Consider the simplicity of those words: “I called to you for help and you healed me.”

May I recommend that to you? May I say that I thank God for doctors and nurses and all who help the sick and infirm. But the ultimate healer is God. Why not take your case to Him? I’ve done it many times and He’s healed me. I believe He’ll do it for you.
