" Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. "
I studied James last year and learned so much. In this verse we are given instruction on what to do when we or others are sick. We are called to seek help from our church elders and be anointed with oil. Did the church elders or the oil heal those that were/are sick? Nope, God did it. Did all of them, even those that followed this direction with the utmost of faith and fervor, get healed? No again, not all will receive an earthly healing. Did Jesus himself cry out to be saved from death? Yes (see Hebrews 5:7). He was heard, but God's plan was to save many. My prayer for you today, is that even through our trials and struggles that we remain forever faithful to the One who is ever faithful, ever present, and everlasting. Amen.
I've been hearing a lot about Essential Oils lately, have you? My sister-in-law swears by coconut oil. Surfing the web this morning I found a link to Dr Oz for "99 Amazing Uses for Coconut Oil". I'm definitely going to do some more research. Here are a few more resources.
