"He sent his word and healed them." - Psalm 117:20
Of all the subjects to comfort our minds in the recollection of the
mercies in Jesus, the authority and name of Jehovah in the appointment
comes home with the greatest comfort to the heart. This is faith's
warrant - this is faith's confidence. Who sent Jesus; who sent his word;
who is it that gives validity and efficacy to salvation? Jehovah.
"Beware of him," saith the Lord, "my name is in him." And how then can
my soul fail, or any promise in Christ pass unfulfilled, when Jehovah
sends and Christ completes the work the Father gave him to do? Blessed
Jesus! may I always look to thee under this precious character; and may
I hear thee speaking under that solemn, but blessed title, "I am the
Lord that healeth thee"
