Psalm 30, The Cure for What Ails You

Key Verse

O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me.
— Psalm 30:2

RCL Daily Devotion for Friday, July 5, 2019

RCL Daily Devotions written by R. Fergus Moir from RCL Worship Resources (see more).

I used to be angry. All the time. Anger was so much a part of my makeup that I wasn’t even aware of it. In fact, I thought I was a happy, well-adjusted person. Yet anytime anything went wrong in the slightest, it was cause for bitter disappointment. I tried to numb my anger and general sense of dissatisfaction with comfort food, fantasy and avoidance. News flash: it didn’t work.

Eventually, I had to admit that something was terribly wrong, that there was some kind of soul sickness deep within me that needed healing.

Finally, beaten down and ready to give up trying to run the universe, I cried to God for help, and got willing to do whatever was needed to get out of God’s way. And God healed me of my deep soul sickness.

Is my life perfect now? Not by a long shot. But I can live my life as it comes, rather than trying to force it to be what it’s not, knowing that God is in charge. I have peace, and far more energy to do what God is calling me to.

Where has God shown up with healing in my life?
