Message from Rev Fiona Solman 3 July 2022
The Bible has a lot to say about healing in our readings this week. Somehow, it seems to have been something that happened a long time ago and we wonder if miraculous healing ever happens today. Of course, we have made amazing discoveries with medicines, and surgery develops daily, to achieve what would not have been possible years ago. But what about God’s healing? Do we expect it? Do we see it?
I am reminded of the story I heard about a man who went to a church meeting where the guest preacher had God’s spiritual gift of healing. Afterwards, the man said it was SO boring that even a man in a wheelchair got up and walked out . . .
Maybe we do not see God physically heal people so spectacularly very often, but He makes us whole in body, mind and spirit. So we are bidden to pray for those that are suffering, place them in God’s hands and trust Him. God knows what is best for those who suffer - and for us. Blessings Fiona
