Lesson 1—Healing and God’s Covenants

This is Just a little extract from an Healing “Promises” of God.

I might add some more if liked it.

Some time ago, in a local church prayer service, one of the recent converts was heard to pray, “O God! Please do something; please do something!” The pastor did not interrupt the prayer, but after the service he counseled the young man, explaining, “Son, it isn’t necessary to address God so indefinitely. He is a covenant-making and covenant-keeping God. You can ask for, and receive from the Lord, any one of His precious blessings and benefits revealed in His Holy Word. The Bible contains hundreds of such promises.”

The dictionary defines a covenant as follows: “A formal, solemn, and binding contract between two or more parties especially for the performance of some action, or transfer of assets, usually modified by certain conditions.” The Bible is actually a Covenant revealing what God will do for His people under what conditions. Many scholars prefer the terms Old and New Covenant to Old and New Testament. In fact, the Old Covenant contains several lesser covenants, some of which are conditional and some of which are unconditional. In Exodus 15:26 God makes a healing covenant with His people:

If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you. (Read the whole context, vv. 22–27.)
