"…I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you."
After crossing the Red Sea, Israelite came to a place called Marah. The waters there were bitter. That is why the place was called Marah, which means “bitter.” The Israelite could not drink any of the water, so the Lord made the bitter waters sweet (Exodus 15:23–25). Then, He brought up the subject of the diseases of Egypt and, for the first time, revealed Himself to His people as “the Lord who heals you.”
Why did the Lord suddenly mention the diseases of the world at a place called “bitter”? What do diseases have to do with bitter waters? It is because He wants His people to know that a major cause of diseases in their bodies is bitterness and resentment! I have seen the extreme effect of bitterness and resentment. Believe me you don’t want that in your life. One of my family members has lost his life because of it.
If you have unforgiveness in your heart long enough, that unforgiveness can sometimes translate into a disease in your body.
So if you have been bitter about something or someone, it is time to let it go! Your health, joy and life are more important than angry, bitterness and resentment. If you are already sick and you know that bitterness has something to do with it, let it go! See Jesus as your healer. He is standing at your place of bitterness today. It’s may be hard to let it go or forgive someone but by Jesus your side, you can do it. He is saying to you, “My child, I can make your bitter waters sweet. I am the Lord who heals you.”
Dear friend, Today is the day! Let it all go and let Jesus heal not just your diseases, but your broken heart too! He cares for you and that is why he will stand with you as you take decision forgive and let it go
Your life will never be the same after this!
