“I will exalt you, Lord, for you rescued me. You refused to let my enemies triumph over me. O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you restored my health. You brought me up from the grave, O Lord. You kept me from falling into the pit of death.”
Psalms 30:1-3 NLT
Has God brought you out of a horrible pit? Have you been granted deliverance from enemy attack? Give glory to God! Exalt Him with your declarations of praise! Shout His greatness to the world! He is worthy of all of our praise! Have you been in a valley of health challenges? Have you experienced the healing hand of God? Give Him praise! He is Jehovah Rapha - "The Lord who heals"! Do you need a healing touch right now? Call on Him! He waits for your genuine, humble cry. The woman who had a hemorrhage of blood for 12 years came to Him in the bustling crowd and pressed her way to Him. As she touched the outer fringe of His robe, she was instantaneously healed! (see Matthew 9:20-22; Mark 5:25-34; Luke 8:43-48). This woman had seen physicians and had spent all of her financial resources on medical help. Nothing had helped her. In her desperation, she came, in full faith, to her only hope - Jesus! She didn't care what others thought. She didn't have to decide whether He could heal her or not! She simply acted in faith! Faith touches the heart of our Father! He is moved by our cries of genuine trust! (see Hebrews 11:1 & 6). When she finally reached the place where she could touch His clothes, virtue went out from Him and dispensed, to her, what was needed. Her faith was so genuine that Jesus called her "Daughter"! This declaration makes a statement of belonging to the family. I believe that Jesus saw her act as a statement of faith in who He was. She didn't just "want something from Him", she truly believed in Him with all of her heart! There are those who only want Jesus as long as they need something. Jesus is looking for those who believe in who is and who are committed to Him as their LORD! Today, I want to declare my full trust in who He is and what He has done. Sure, He has rescued me from circumstances that were adverse. Indeed, He has delivered me from the valley of despair many times. I have even experienced physical healing in my body that only He could provide. However, I praise Him, not only as a recipient of His acts of greatness, but as LORD of my life! For this reason, I praise Him eternally! Truly, He has delivered me from eternal death and damnation! If he has done the same for you, please join me In praising Him with absolute celebration! For that we should give Him glory throughout all of eternity! Hallelujah!!!!!!!
