1. God is Their Healer

“The LORD, the God of the Hebrews, has met with us; and now, please let us go a three day’s journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God.” (Exodus 3:18)

“And the waters covered their adversaries; not one of them was left. Then they believed his words; they sang his praise. But they soon forgot his works” – Psalm 106:11-13

“What a question! They were at the Red Sea, and God cleft the intervening gulf in twain, through the depths thereof they marched dryshod; there is Marah’s water – shall it be more difficult for God to purify than to divide? To sweeten a fountain – is that more difficult than to cleanse a sea? Is anything too hard for the Lord?” - C. H. Spurgeon

“For the eyes of the LORD move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His.” - 2 Chronicles 16:9

2. God is Our Healer

“You search the Scriptures [Old Testament] because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life.” – John 5:39-40

“For as many as are the promises of God, in Christ they are yes” (2 Corinthians 1:20)

“Best of all, may not this tree cut down be an emblem of the Savior? A glorious tree indeed was he, with spreading branches, and top reaching to heaven – but he must suffer the axe for our sakes; and now, today, contemplating his atoning sacrifice, and by faith resting in him, the troubles of life and the troubles of death are sweetened by his dear cross, which, though it be a bitter tree in itself, is the antidote for all the bitterness that comes upon here and hereafter.”

“And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands, for my name’s sake, will receive a hundredfold and will inherit eternal life.” (Matthew 19:29)

“no good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly” (Psalm 84:11)

“every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 1:3)

“This mystery [of marriage] is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church” (Ephesians 5:32)

“I can’t see how You’re leading me Unless You’ve led me here Where I’m lost enough to let myself be led.” – Rich Mullins

“The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he delights over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.” Zephaniah 3:17

“Do not call me Naomi, call me Mara, for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me” (Ruth 1:20)

“For the Lord disciplines the one he loves… God is treating you as sons… If you are left without discipline, in which we all have participated, then you are illegitimate children and not sons… For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it” (Hebrews 12:6-8, 11)

“Not the pain of the executioner’s whip but the pain of the surgeon’s scalpel”

“In all this that I am called to suffer there is not even a single particle of punishment for my sin; God has punished Christ, consequently he cannot punish me: to punish two for one offense would be unjust, therefore there is nothing penal in all that I am suffering. I do not know of any reflection more consoling than this, that my sorrow is not laid on me by a judge, nor inflicted on me as the result of divine anger. There is not a drop of wrath in a riverful of a believer’s grief. Doesn’t that take the bitterness out of the affliction and make it sweet?” – Spurgeon

“For my people have committed two evils: they have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters, and hewed out cisterns for themselves, broken cisterns that can hold no water” (Jeremiah 2:13).

“The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price.” (Revelation 22:17)
