More than Able!

Jeremiah 8:18-22O my Comforter in sorrow, my heart is faint within me. 19Listen to the cry of my people from a land far away: “Is the LORD not in Zion? Is her King no longer there?” “Why have they provoked me to anger with their images, with their worthless foreign idols?” 20″The harvest is past, the summer has ended, and we are not saved.” 21Since my people are crushed, I am crushed; I mourn, and horror grips me. 22Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then is there no healing for the wound of my people?

Jesus Christ
Precious oil, healing balm
He is able, more than able
To heal your body
To heal your soul
He is able to make you whole
Completely whole.

A Balm in Gilead

Jeremiah 8:18-22 O my Comforter in sorrow, my heart is faint within me. 19Listen to the cry of my people from a land far away: “Is the LORD not in Zion? Is her King no longer there?” “Why have they provoked me to anger with their images, with their worthless foreign idols?” 20″The harvest is past, the summer has ended, and we are not saved.” 21Since my people are crushed, I am crushed; I mourn, and horror grips me. 22Is there no balm in Gilead?

Have you ever felt a sorrow or grief so great
… that it felt as if your broken heart would never mend?

The one who created that heart has the power to heal it and make it new.


Jesus Christ the balm of Gilead
A precious oil; A soothing balm
The oil of joy
… To console those who mourn in Zion -Isa 61:1-3

Let Jesus Christ the balm of Gilead
… turn your mourning to dancing. -Ps 30:5,11; Jere 31:10-14

In His presence
Fullness of joy
Taste and see. -Ps 16:8-11;Ps 34:8

There is a Balm in Gilead
Spiritual

There is a balm in Gilead,
To make the wounded whole;
There is a balm in Gilead,
To heal the sin sick soul.

Some times I feel discouraged,
And think my work’s in vain,
But then the Holy Spirit,
Revives my soul again.”

Refrain: “If you can’t preach like Peter,
If you can’t pray like Paul,
Just tell the love of Jesus,
And say He died for all.”
