Earlier this week we lost an angelic friend. Elizabeth was a beautiful soul, gone too soon. She was a caretaker and a nurturer. A great listener and a person whose kindness, generosity, and gentleness exuded from her.
During her time in the hospital, we had the privilege of spending time at her bedside praying for her. We were hopeful that as we read God’s healing promises, she was listening. But most importantly, we were pleading with God for a miracle.
This past Monday however, Elizabeth lost her fight and passed away.
Today, in honor of her life, I want to share some of God’s healing bible promises that were read over her during her time in the hospital. And although God had other plans for her and our hearts are broken, I continue to live with hope and trust in God’s faithfulness and unshaken promises.
Elizabeth this is for you, for your strong spirit, and for fighting like a true warrior.
God’s Healing Promises
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)
But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. (Isaiah 53:5)
Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. (Psalm 103:2-3)
Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Matthew 11:28-29)
He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed. (1 Peter 2:24)
O Lord, if you heal me, I will be truly healed; if you save me, I will be truly saved. My praises are for you alone! (Jeremiah 17:14)
