“Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.” – Jeremiah 17:14
In March 2021, a Filipino senior citizen, age 65, underwent a 7-minute operation in the town of Pampanga to remove cataracts from both of his eyes. He started suffering from cataracts more than two decades ago before losing his sight in both eyes. Incredibly, he was able to see again after coming round and burst into tears.
Doctor Noel Lacsamana said: “It was a very special moment. The patient was able to see again after all those years.” The emotional patient shook the hands of his doctor and went to hug him while saying thank you to the specialist. Nurses guided the old man through the operating room as his legs were still wobbly from the anesthesia. They gave him a card with words to read bearing his doctor’s name to check if he was able to focus his eyesight. He read it successfully.
The emotional man said: “God put knowledge in people to help others and do good. Thank you to our Lord and also to you, Doctor Noel, too. Remember God created us in his image to worship the Lord and do good.”
The doctor replied: “Right after being operated on, this man could see again after 19 years in the dark. Only God can heal, I am just his instrument.”
The Lord is Creator and Healer. Today in prayer, praise Jesus who can heal us from all infirmities.
“You don’t really know Jesus is all you need until Jesus is all you have.” – Tim Keller
God’s Word: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed,” – Luke 4:18
