Find A Remedy
Are you over the whole COVID-19, sheltering in place, wearing masks, and social distancing? What about injustice and systemic racism? I think it’s safe to say that it all has become too much. Needless to say, 2020 has brought its share of problems to everyone. Since we are in the midst of a pandemic and social unrest, we still need to find a remedy to cure the very things that plague our society.
Is the remedy a vaccine or defunding the police? No one seems to have a clear answer that could solve these problems. So we face each upcoming day unclear of what it may hold.
Find a Remedy
When we find ourselves in circumstances that we have no control over, there is only one way we can find a remedy. That is by seeking Jesus for a cure.
If you are not familiar, there are a few stories in the Bible of people who needed a remedy for their situation. The woman with the issue of blood lived with an infirmity for 12 long years. She sought after doctors and spent all the money she had only to find a remedy etched within the hem of Jesus’s garment.
There were also ten men who were leapers seeking a cure for their disease. Society had shunned them and they were desperate for healing.
They saw Jesus from a distance as He was passing by and they called out to Him for pity. Jesus instructed them to go see the priests. As they were walking in faith to where He instructed, their bodies were healed.
Another story is about a man who was born blind. People around town always wondered if he was blind due to the sins of his parents, but Jesus clarified that he was blind so that the power of God could be seen.
Much to the man’s surprise, Jesus spat in the dirt to make mud, spread it over his eyes, then told him to wash it off. Instantly, the man could see.
Jesus has the Remedy
So how can you relate these stories to your present-day? Regardless if you need a remedy to your body, a relationship, financial issues, or having your life to matter to others, you have to have faith to receive it.
Faith is the common denominator in all instances. Even when you don’t understand how it can or when it will happen. Faith to follow whatever instruction you are given by the Lord will lead you to find a remedy.
Passive behavior won’t work. You must be willing to be the eyes and feet of Jesus here on earth. When He speaks, you must act. As the scripture said above, God wants His power to be seen through us.
Imagine if every leader, man, woman, and child put their focus only on what the Lord has directed them to do. That would make a significant impact on the world. Through our actions, we could remedy so much of what is wrong in the world today.
So start by doing your part. Put your faith and trust in God. Pray over your nation and reflect the change you want to see. At the end of the day, we all have the remedy.
Lord, You have the whole world in Your hands and the remedy to cure every issue. Give me the strength and courage to be the change that I want to see. I submit myself as a willing vessel for Your power to be seen through me. In Jesus's name, Amen.
