Chapter 17

Jeremiah's Prayer for Deliverance

…13O LORD, the hope of Israel, All who forsake You will be put to shame. Those who turn away on earth will be written down, Because they have forsaken the fountain of living water, even the LORD. 14Heal me, O LORD, and I will be healed; Save me and I will be saved, For You are my praise. 15Look, they keep saying to me, "Where is the word of the LORD? Let it come now!"…

Jeremiah 30:17

LORD, I KNOW that You will restore my health to me, and You will heal me of any wounds, because this is what You said.

14. (Jeremiah 3:22 NKJV) "Return, you backsliding children, And I will heal your backslidings." "Indeed we do come to You, For You are the LORD our God.

15. (Jeremiah 17:14 NKJV) Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; Save me, and I shall be saved, For You are my praise.

16. (Jeremiah 30:17 NKJV) For I will restore health to you And heal you of your wounds,' says the LORD, 'Because they called you an outcast saying: "This is Zion; No one seeks her."'

17. (Jeremiah 33:6 NKJV) 'Behold, I will bring it health and healing; I will heal them and reveal to them the abundance of peace and truth.

36. (James 5:14-16 NKJV) Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. {15} And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. {16} Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

The theme of healing in the book of Jeremiah goes from cover to cover.

At first you might think it is a sub title sub theme to the book

But as I have explored this subject in this book I have come to see that the whole book is about healing.

Often though we are not sure what the real issue is

For example One afternoon, a man went to his doctor and told him that he hasn’t been feeling well lately. The doctor examined the man, left the room, and came back with three different bottles of pills. The doctor said, “Take the green pill with a big glass of water when you wake up. Take the blue pill with a big glass of water after you eat lunch. Then just before going to bed, take the red pill with another big glass of water.” Startled to be put on so much medicine, the man stammered, “Doc, exactly what is my problem?” The doctor replied, “You’re not drinking enough water.”

Israel was sick – the nations were attacking her and eventually she would be destroyed but the real problem was she was not drinking enough water – living water. The refreshing water that comes from being in correct relationship with God.

The nation was unhealthy and God sent Jeremiah to diagnose it’s sickness.

I think health is like that we often think the red green or blue pills will solve our problems but the real answer is much simpler than that.

Sometimes the thing we give value to has no value at all, like the pills. While the thing we thought was irrelevant has the real value
