When the three Hebrew children were about to be thrown into the fiery furnace because of their refusal to bow to an idol image they declared to King Nebuchadnezzar that God was able to deliver them. Throughout the Bible God is revealed as Mighty God who is the overcomer of difficulties and diseases. “The fear of God was on all the kingdoms of those countries, when they heard that the Lord fought against the enemies of Israel” (2 Chronicles 20:29)
“Then Joshua spoke to the Lord… ‘Sun, stand still over Gibeon; and Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon.’ So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the people had revenge upon their enemies… So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day. There has been no day like that, before or after it, that the Lord heeded the voice of a man; for the Lord fought for Israel” (Joshua 10:12-14)
“Then Deborah said to Barak, ‘Up! for this is the day in which the Lord has delivered Sisera into your hand. Has not the Lord gone before you?… And the Lord routed Sisera and all his chariots and all his army with the edge of the sword before Barak; and Sisera alighted from his chariot and fled away on foot.” (Judges 4:14,15) “Your right hand, O Lord, has become glorious in power; Your right hand, O Lord, has dashed the enemy in pieces. And in the greatness of Your excellence You have overthrown those who rose against You.” (Exodus 15:6,7).
“Both riches and honor came from You, and You reign over all. In your hand is power and might; in Your hand is it to make great and to give strength to all” (1 Chronicles 29:12).
Jesus became known as the Great Physician, and no one ever questioned His right to the title. He was never confronted by sickness He could not heal. “Now Jesus went about all Galilee… healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people” (Matthew 4:23).
God is still Mighty God and He continues to be the Overcomer in the midst of difficulties and the healer of our diseases. Let us praise Him now!
