Three Healing Oils
Oil to make his face shine. Psalm 104:15
There are healing oils the Holy Spirit can apply to ever life and every needy heart. These healing oils will restore us, renew us, and cause our faces to shine. Without these oils we could not live the overcoming life God has purposed for us to live.
The healing oil of MERCY:
Mercy heals us from the heartaches of the past.
Without mercy we couldn’t be free from our past. Mercy releases our hearts from the guilt and condemnation of sin that separated us from God. Mercy brings salvation, salvation brings forgiveness, and forgiveness brings reconciliation. Reconciliation means we are no longer separated from God, the old has passed away and we live in the love of new beginnings.
Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit... Titus 3:5 (NKJV)
The healing oil of GRACE:
Grace heals us from the burdens of the present.
Without grace the demands of the day would weigh heavy upon our hearts. Grace is the help we need. Grace brings strength, and strength enables us to walk through our day in God’s sufficiency. Every good and perfect gift from God, and all His blessings to us in Christ are ours today because of abundant grace.
God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8 (NKJV)
The healing oil of HOPE:
Hope heals us from the fear of the future.
Without hope in our hearts we couldn’t face our tomorrows. Hope keeps our feet moving forward and our eyes fixed on Jesus. Hope brings lightness to our steps and puts a song of joyful expectation upon our lips. Our future is bright because the sunshine of God’s light shines upon our pathway, and He who goes before us will not fail to keep His promise.
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 (NKJV)
