In the professional tone
1 Peter 2:24
In 1 Peter 2:24, the Bible says that God’s grace is sufficient for us. This means that even when we’re struggling with an illness, God will give us what we need.
The word “sufficient” is used in Scripture to describe things that are complete or abundant enough to meet a need. In this verse, it shows how much we can expect from the Lord as he provides for our needs in times of sickness and health.
It also tells us something else: God’s grace isn’t just available to those who deserve it—it’s available to all Christians!
Jesus was tempted by the devil. He resisted temptation and was hungry later that day. Jesus was tempted to turn stones into bread to feed himself, but he did not do that because it would be wrong to use his power for selfish purposes.
In John 10:10, Jesus declares that “I came that they might have life, and have it abundantly.” He is the Good Shepherd who lays down His life for His sheep. In this verse, Jesus describes Himself as a shepherd who knows His sheep and calls them by name.
Jesus leads us to green pastures where we can rest in peace and be fed by Him (Isaiah 40:11; Matthew 9:36). We can follow Him because He knows us better than we know ourselves (1 Corinthians 4:5-6; Psalm 139:1-4). The Bible says that God’s love covers our sins like snow covers the earth (Hosea 1:9; 1 Peter 2:24). It’s not always easy to believe these things sometimes but they are true!
“And God said, ‘Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green plant for food.’ And it was so. And God saw everything that He had made, and behold it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning–the sixth day.”
- “Is not this the fast that I have chosen? To loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?” God wants you to be healthy.
- “Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?” God wants you to be prosperous.
- “Then shalt thou call, and Jehovah will answer; thou shalt cry, and he will say: Here I am! if ye remove from thee vanity for vanity seeing me by reason of mine anger I do put away from among you your strife (unjust gain) continually until ye know me fully do but perceive with thy heart all these judgments then shall ye return unto Jehovah your God with all your heart in righteousness bringing much fruit in thanksgiving saying: Blessed art Thou O Lord who hast quickened us again after our death unto life through Thy Name O Jehovah our God forever give glory because it is good when we were healed by Thy stripes there is no weapon formed against us which prospereth nor any mouth speaking proud things against us in which we do rejoice. For though nations gather together themselves against us yet shall they fall down before us as dust before wind” (Isaiah 58:6-8).
Proverbs 15:15, “A balm for the spirit – for a disease of the bones in the body and for a heart that is sick.” (NASB)
“I will make your face shine on all your ways, that you may be established and proceed confidently in the land you enter to possess.” (NIV)
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
God heals us. He is the source of all healing, and it is His will that we are healed. In Psalm 147:3, God says, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” He wants you to be well and whole. The Bible tells us that God cares about our physical bodies (1 Corinthians 6:19), and that God has given us a body that can serve as a temple for Him (1 Corinthians 6:19). In John 10:10 Jesus said of Himself, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
Jeremiah 33:6 says, “Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her who travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither.”
Jeremiah is speaking about God’s desire for Israel to be healed physically. He was given a prophecy that one day Israel would be restored back to its homeland after being scattered among other countries for many years because of disobedience towards God. Israel’s enemies had taken control over their land and were oppressing them greatly (or in this case destroying their health). But God told Jeremiah that He would restore His people back into their own land again! This is amazing news for us when we consider how much healthier we are now compared to life in those days!
This scripture also reminds us that Jesus Christ died on behalf of all human beings so that all may have an opportunity at good health just as much as they all have an equal chance at salvation through His sacrifice on our behalf!
God wants you to have good health.
God wants you to be healthy, and He has good health for you. God wants you to be strong and disease-free. When we read the Bible, we see that God doesn’t want us to have illness or disease; He doesn’t want us to be sickly people. If a person is praying for healing, it’s because they’re dealing with an illness or a sickness of some kind; but what if they are a whole person? What if they don’t need healing? Well then they should continue just being strong and healthy!
In 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 (ESV), it says “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses…For when I am weak, then I am strong.” This verse talks about how even though we might not feel like we can do something or face something that comes our way in life—even when we get scared—God’s grace is sufficient so that His power will make itself evident through those very situations anyway! You may think: “I’m not strong enough!” but God knows exactly what your strengths are going into this situation so He can use them regardless of how much faithfulness or strength there seems/feels like there is within yourself on any given day.”
