The Healing Hand of God

Tonight while I was driving, I heard a heart-warming song by Jeremy Camp called “Healing Hand of God.” It speaks of the refuge we can find under God’s wings and the healing He will provide in times of pain. I have included the lyrics to this song and another by Skillet called “Rest” that also talks about this amazing Truth.

“Healing Hand Of God” by Jeremy Camp

I have seen the many faces,
I fear in the pain.
I have watched the tears fall plenty,
From heart ache and strength.
So if life's journey,
Has you weary and afraid.
There's rest in the shadow of his wings.
I have walked through the valleys,
The mountains and plains.
I have held the hand of freedom,
It washes all my stains.
If you feel the weight of many trials,
And burdens from this world.
There's freedom in the shelter of the Lord.

Chorus:
I have seen,
The healing hand of God,
Reaching out and mending broken hearts.
Taste and see the fullness of His peace,
And hold on to what's being held out.
The healing hand of God.

I have touched the scars upon His hands,
To see if they were real.
He has walked the road before me,
He knows just how I feel.
When you feel there is not anyone,
Who understands your pain,
Just remember all of Jesus' suffering.

Cast all your cares on Him,
For He cares for you.
He's near to the broken and confused.
By His stripes,
Our spirit is renewed.
So enter in the joy prepared for you.

The healing hand of God (x2)
And hold on to what's being held out (x2)
The healing hand of God

This song above reminds me of 1 Peter 5:7 - “Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about what happens to you."

“Rest” by Skillet

Still, soft quietly spoken voice
That persistently calls my name
And quickens my heart to come
And I come

[Chorus:]
And I rest in the shelter of Your love
And I rest in the wonder of Your Grace
And I rest in the shelter of Your love
And I rest in the wonder of You

Embraced in the promise of You
Is rest for the weary soul
Releasing all that is mine
I reach for You

Take all the old and You make it new
Everything I give to You
You're the hope that can
pull me through
Hallelujah

I pray these songs touched your heart and drive you to action. May you give your cares to the Lord today and let Him carry your burdens. Let Him be the rest you need for today.

In Christ,
Shannon
