“I AM THE LORD THAT HEALETH THEE.” Ex. 15:26 Print E-mail

Observe in the fifth chapter of James how the apostle distinguishes between suffering and disease.  “Is any among you afflicted?  Let him pray” for patience.  “Is any sick among you?  The prayer of faith shall save the sick.”  There is no promise that the trials of life will be taken away, but there is such a promise in the case of sickness.  - STOCKMAYER

“We which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in out mortal flesh” (2 Cor. 4:11).  The miraculous power which raised Christ from the grave saved Paul from going down into it.  – BEET

The strong phrase, “in our mortal flesh…” indicates how deeply the resurrection life of Christ penetrated in the apostle’s physical organism.  It communicated a living power and a kind of imperishableness to the very substance of the body, to the flesh which is essentially mortal and corruptible.       – SCOTT’S COMMENTARY

We trust God for nothing, no matter what it be – healing included – but out faith is put to the test on the point in question.  -PRITCHARD
