Can the Dead Praise?

by | Oct 18, 2014 | Miracles, Praise

“I will exalt You, O Jehovah; for You have lifted me up and have not allowed my foes to rejoice over me. O Jehovah my God, I cried to You, and You have healed me. O Jehovah, You have brought up my soul from Sheol; You have kept me alive, from going down into the Pit. Sing praises to Jehovah, O saints of His; and give thanks to the memory of His holiness. For His anger is only a moment; in His favor is life. Weeping may endure in the evening, but joy comes in the morning. And in my prosperity, I said, I shall never be moved forever. O Jehovah, in Your favor You have made my strong mountain to stand; You hid Your face; I was troubled; I called to You, O Jehovah; yea, I prayed to Jehovah. What profit is in my blood, in going down to the Pit? Shall the dust praise You? Shall it tell of Your truth? Hear, O Jehovah, and favor me; O Jehovah, be my helper. You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; You have loosed my sackcloth and have clothed me with gladness. So my glory shall praise You, and not be quiet; O Jehovah, my God, I will give thanks to You forever.” (Psa 30:1-12 A Psalm; a Song of Dedication of the House of David.)

When I share Scriptures, it is usually things God has been showing me in my own life. I have to admit, sometimes it stings to hear truth from Holy Spirit, but this is how we grow and mature in the Lord. So trust me when I say, everything I share with you, has stung me to the core first!

As I read this Psalm of David, I was reminded by Holy Spirit of just how many times Jesus has saved and rescued me from the enemy. Many times, we have to reflect on the past, and where God was in it; to appreciate today, and all He has done. I was literally in the place of death being imminent. The sentence had been laid out by the doctors with no reprieve. I was in pain for months as the sickness quickly progressed. At times the pain was so bad I would crumble to the floor screaming. Usually all I could get out was “God…help me God.”

Then one day in August I decided enough was enough. I cried out to God, to either heal me or take me home. I told Him I could NOT take any more, no matter how strong He thinks I am, and then I said;

‘If I am in pain or dead, how can I give You Glory to others I meet? Would You have me tell of Your goodness as I am dying? Either You are God or You are a liar. Prove Your Word of Psa 103:3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; Who healeth all thy diseases;, or take me home (if there really is a home!)’ As you can see my anguish was great!

David cried out in his pain and anguish and spoke the same thing to God as me. Was I insulting God? Never, He can not be insulted. But my heart was finally in a place where there was nothing left of Robyn, but pain and certain death. I was a broken soul in search of His touch in my life. In search of this Jehovah Ratha, The God who heals. It was then He heard me from Heaven, forgave all my sins, and healed all my diseases. Now I am free to Glorify Him Daily alone or to others. What a wonderful feeling of freedom to say to people…God still heals today, I know, for I am the walking dead! Dead to self, alive to HIM.

Beloved, no matter what you are going through today, nothing is impossible for God to deal with. The Secret to God’s heart and answer to prayer is brokenness and humility. These are born from the pain and trials of life. Will God always heal, I do not know, I only know HIS WORD says HE WILL, and that is enough for anyone. That is why in the end of the Psalm, David is still able to Praise His God, for truly Jesus is Worthy of all Praise!
