What Will Jesus Do for You?

And Mary said: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord  my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.”’

Luke 1:46-47

Today is a very special day. It marks 18 months of remission from needing acute care for myasthenic syndrome, a debilitating condition I have lived with for 35+ years. In and out of the hospital, for all of those years, I have never had a remission like this—and there have been no recent medication or treatment changes. The only explanation I have is that it is God working in my life. So what does it mean to have such a medical healing? Well, I’d say it is about trust, hope, and faith in Jesus Christ, our Great Healer, Lord and Savior.

 

Giving Credit Where Credit is Due

Sometimes we all have small and not so small miracles happen in our lives. And we barely notice, or avoid calling it just that—a miracle. Too often we try to explain away miracles without giving God the credit, when in fact we fully know that what has happened defies human logic. Accidents averted, miracles of timing, financial blessings, experiencing capabilities far beyond our abilities. I believe miracles happen every day, but we often fail to recognize them and give credit where credit is due.

 

A Miracle in Progress: The Healing Installment Plan

With this healing I know my prayers are being heard and being answered. I still have a long way to go, as I remain mobility impaired, have occasional garbled speech when fatigued, and am on a respirator 12 hours per 24 hour day. But I am trusting God more than ever that He is in control, and He has purpose and plans for my life. I am also believing that more healing is on the way.

 

To say I am encouraged is an understatement. In essence, I have been on the Healing Installment Plan, looking for any sign of improvement through prayer for most of my adult life. Yes, setbacks are always a possibility, but I am no longer waiting for the other shoe to drop, figuratively speaking. In the past, I have not been able to plan ahead with any real certainty due to ongoing medical complications. Now, it is possible to make plans with the probability that I will be able to be there when I say I will, rather than requiring acute medical care.

 

What Will Jesus Do for You?

Having been frequently in and out of the hospital for 3-1/2 decades, I now have new found freedom to grow in hope for myself and others. If God would answer my prayers in such a major way, imagine the healing He has in store for you! For I believe that, in His own time and way, Jesus provides healing for His flock in every way possible during times of infirmity, disability, addictions, mental illness, poverty, aging, loneliness, and grief. He sends His Holy Spirit upon all who call upon His Holy Name. Jesus helps us all in unimaginable ways beyond our comprehension—and saves us in times of adversity. This is not to say that believers will have perfect lives. Rather, when God allows adversity, He always equips us, prepares the way, and gives us whatever we need to accomplish the work he starts in each of us.

 

Today, like Mary in this Bible passage, my heart is full of gratitude to God, and I can hardly wait to see what He does next!

And Mary said: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,  my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.”‘ Luke 1:46-47

    writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like
    Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any tips? Thank you!

  3. First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a
    quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thanks!

  15. I believe what you posted was very logical. But, what about this?
    suppose you were to write a awesome headline? I am not saying your
    information is not solid, but suppose you added something that makes
    people want more? I mean What Will Jesus Do for You? – The Inspiration Cafe Blog is a little vanilla.
    You might look at Yahoo’s front page and see
    how they create news headlines to get people to click. You might add a related
    video or a picture or two to get people excited about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it could bring your website a little livelier.
