Black Music Month Series, Health/Sickness

Come On In The Room

June is Black Music Month! To celebrate, each of our EmpowerMoments will be based on Black music for the entire month. This includes Black songwriters, producers or performers. Stay tuned as we use various genres of Black music to tell our stories and exemplify the beauty of God’s love! He can be found virtually anywhere if we earnestly look for Him and listen intently! Happy Black Music Month! Dance as if no one is watching!

Two days of no relief from swelling, excruciating pain and a lack of mobility with my right hand led me to the ER.  I was in so much pain and discomfort that going to the hospital was a no-brainer, but on the other hand (no pun intended) I felt disappointed that I, who believe that Jesus is my healer, could not tap into my healing.  After all of my praying, whining and retreating to my bed to get rest and relief, I decided to go see a doctor.  However, I prayed that God would give him/her wisdom concerning my issue because I also had no clue as to why I was ailing.

As I waited in the little room for the doctor to come in, a song came to mind.  It was a song I first heard when I was much younger.  It is one of those old gospel songs sung with an uncanny vocal.  When I first heard the song, I couldn’t understand some of the words yet the song became one of my favorites.

 

Chorus

Come on in the room,

come on in the room;

Jesus is my doctor

and He writes out all of my prescriptions,

He gives me all of my medicine in the room.

 

Chorus 2

There is joy, joy in the room,

joy in the room;

Jesus is my doctor

and He writes out all of my prescriptions,

He gives me all of my medicine in the room.

–Georgia Mass Choir – Come On In The Room

 

As the elderly woman sings the chorus, you can imagine Jesus walking into the room with the sick lying there.  But she is unmoved by the illness and the current circumstances because JESUS IS HER DOCTOR.  The Lord holds her and her loved one’s healing, medicine, joy, and everything they need, and He is coming to administer it all to them.

Even though I sat in that room waiting on the doctor, I knew his skills or education was not going to suffice without the Lord’s help and wisdom.  When we are going through, we sometimes forget all that Jesus is and can do.  God is Yahweh, the Great I Am and He said that He would supply all of our needs according to His riches and glory.  Those needs are not just financial, but sometimes are emotional, mental, physical, spiritual, or career or health-related.  Whatever you need, God is and has!

You need love; God is and has it, the real and unfailing love!  You need strength; God is God Almighty and has strength for you to endure!  You need healing; God’s Word is a healer and He will revive you!

Notice the lines in the chorus that says “And He writes out all my prescriptions, He gives me all of my medicine in my room.”  Exchange the words prescriptions and medicine for His Word/The Word of God.  Whatever we need is in God’s Word.  It is our medicine, our help and His written prescription to make it through life and live according to His standards.

Meditate upon these scriptures that reminds us of God’s medicine and promises:

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. (Psalm 119:105 KJV)

It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. (John 6:63 KJV)

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. (Mat 4:4 KJV)

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. (Isaiah 55:11 KJV)

Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. (Prov 30:5 KJV)

For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. (Prov 4:22 KJV)

Dear Daddy,

Thank You for the Holy Spirit who reminds me that You are the Great I Am!  Thank You for being all that I need.  Thank You for being my doctor and writing Your Word for me not just to know, but to live and use as my defense through any storm, battle or lack.  Thank You for being omnipresent and God Almighty!  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Ladies, today I EMPOWER you to allow Jesus to come on in the room and be all that you need.  Welcome Him in to every area of your lives.  Believe and trust in His Word to perform what it says it will do!  Then take your medicine the way He prescribes and daily, remembering that He is and He has it all for you!
