Healing or Healer?

A couple of weeks ago in prayer, the Lord gave me a beautiful thought. I was praying for healing for my family through a tough situation, and He brought this text to mind: "But unto you that fear My name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings" (Malachi 4:2).

That's when I realized that instead of begging for healing, I should ask for Him to be present. Jesus' great desire is to gather us under His healing wings "even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings" (Matthew 23:37). When our lives are hid in Him, He brings healing. But to ask for healing apart from Him is pointless, because He is the healer.

So I've changed my prayer, because healing isn't really what we most need after all. We need Him!

Have a blessed Sabbath!
