This was the scripture for my devotional today. God can heal even the advanced case of leprosy!
New Living Translation (NLT)
Jesus Heals a Man with Leprosy
12 In one of the villages, Jesus met a man with an advanced case of leprosy. When the man saw Jesus, he bowed with his face to the ground, begging to be healed. “Lord,” he said, “if you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean.” 13 Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!” And instantly the leprosy disappeared.
I went to a physical therapy yesterday for a frozen shoulder. It has been going on since lase December. It hurt a lot and I asked her to stop at the therapy! Then I went to an orthopedist today. They took an X-ray of my right shoulder. When the doctor showed me the X-ray on the computer screen, my eyes were glued to the tumor in my lung. I could see it clearly due to the location of the tumor. I had never seen it so clearly. It looked like it was floating silently in my lung. I renewed my vow to keep standing on Jesus and the word of God again.
And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your offspring, so that you will love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live. - Deuteronomy 30:6
I don't know exactly how God will circumcise my heart, but I understand that it is the matter of the heart and not the outward "Christian" things we do. Just like what Jesus teaches us. Where the Law says not to murder, Jesus says that hating someone is not different from killing someone. Law could hide your heart. Our hearts don't have to be involved when we deal with Law. God wants us to open our hearts.
circumcision of our hearts =
enables us to love God with all our hearts and souls=
we begin to live (really live)
The enemy wants to destroy and kill, but Jesus came to give us life.
If you diligently, diligently listen/harken
to the voice of the LORD your God
and do what is right in his sight
and give ear/listen/weigh/ponder/give good heed
to what he says
and hedge about/protect all his bound (=engraved law)
I will cause NONE of the diseases/infirmities upon you,
which I cast in upon the Egyptians;
for I am the LORD Rapha who make you whole/heal.
God loves us so much.
I still don't understand where to draw a line and how to read the law in the OT after knowing Jesus but I see the Father's heart that loves us so much even in the law.
