Is there no balm in Gilead?


“The harvest is past, the summer has ended, yet we aren’t saved. Because my people are crushed, I am crushed; darkness and despair overwhelm me. What to do with God’s people, Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then have my people not been restored to health?”  Jeremiah 8:20-22 CEB.

Jeremiah was deeply disturbed by the judgement that was coming on his people, he was overwhelmed with despair over their seemingly hopeless plight. Seasons came and went, and yet there was no sign of salvation, there was no deliverance in sight and the prophet asked the question “Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then have my people not been restored to health”?  Jeremiah 8:20-22 CEB. The region of Gilead was known for its perfumes and especially for its balm which was used to heal wounds, despite that, their wounds were not healed. Jeremiah seems to have understood that the sickness of his people was incurable and he wept over their predicament.

Perhaps you are sick in your body or have a health challenge, you have visited the doctors or hospital but there are no signs of your recovery. Perhaps you have even prayed and fasted and it seems like God is not answering your prayers. Perhaps you are discouraged, despondent, and angry or have even given up hope of being healed. I have good news for you, that long standing problem is coming to an end today in Jesus name, Amen.

The word of God is His balm for cure of all sickness and disease and Jesus Christ is our Great Physician. The bible says, my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). God’s will is for us to live in divine health with nothing missing and nothing broken. Sickness, disease and pain are not God’s plan for our lives.

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)

During Jesus’s earthly ministry, the bible records that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power and He went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil, for God was with Him (Acts 10:36). Healing and health are part of our redemptive right. When God gave us His son, He gave us everything we will ever need (2 Peter 1:3).

God has brought us health and cure through the death and resurrection of Jesus, therefore sickness and disease has no legal right in your life. Jesus received 39 stripes for your sickness, disease and pain. The price was fully paid on the cross (Isaiah 53:4-5).

Take hold of the Word of God today where your healing is concerned, for faith in God’s Word is the most powerful weapon in the world for your total health. He sent His Word and healed them and delivered them from their destructions (Psalms 107:20).

Everyone who needed healing, and encountered Jesus received their healing (Matthew12:15). Your case is not an exception. Healing is your birth right through redemption, healing is the children’s bread (Matthew 15:26). Receive your healing today in Jesus name. Amen.

Every Blessing
