Jan 27 Devotion: Waiting Outside the Operating Room

1 Kings 17: 19 & 23 “19 And he said unto her, Give me thy son. And he took him out of her bosom, and carried him up into a loft, where he abode, and laid him upon his own bed. 23 And Elijah took the child, and brought him down out of the chamber into the house, and delivered him unto his mother: and Elijah said, See, thy son liveth.”

How many of us would expect a doctor to perform surgery with a parent hovering over his shoulder? How many of us expect to be watching as God does miracles in our life? Having faith enough to be healed is useless if we don’t have enough faith to let go our our ailment and give it to the Lord. We do not have the right or the privilege of knowing how God will perform the miracle, we simply must believe the God is in control. God does not suffer those that wish to have God’s touch of healing but demand to see how God will heal them. His ways are altogether above ours’ and beyond our comprehension. Isn’t it enough that he offers healing? Why must we become obsessed with the details? Does he not have all power over all creation? He is more than able to heal his own creation. The widow was more than confident that she did not have to be present to receive the blessing our seeing her son restored to life. I do not need to know how God will heal me or in  what manner he performed the healing. We must simply let go of our problem as we give it to Him. Waiting outside the operating room is not a fearful place if your surgeon in the Great Physician.

Your fellowservant in Christ, Bro. Jordan Foster
