Band-Aids Can Fix Everything

Band-Aids Can Fix Everything

- August 05, 2005

I remember a time when a Band-Aid was a surefire cure-all at my house. I had a house full of preschoolers so there were plenty of skinned knees and elbows. But I must say, there was never a boo-boo so great that one of those strips of padded plastic couldn't fix it. If the Band-Aid happened to have Barney or Superman on it, the healing powers increased about seven fold. Miraculous!

It was amazing to me, too, that as soon as I bought a box of the coolest bandages, some kind of injury surfaced. What timing I had! Interestingly, some of the injuries were not visible to the human eye. I often wondered how an invisible boo-boo could require six Band-Aids, but mine is not to reason why. Mine is just to peel the paper and affix the Barney where it hurts. Nope, I don't understand it. But I just don't have to. It works.

How wonderful that the Lord's understanding is infinitely bigger than mine. Psalm 147:5 says, "Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit." (NIV) I don't have to understand the details of life. It's enough to understand that whatever the situation, whether I'm facing the visible or invisible impossible challenges of this life, in His understanding, He knows exactly what I need. There's no limit to what He knows, and there's no limit to His mighty power. He has everything needed to meet every need. There are no "impossible" challenges to Him.

So I really don't have to fret about the things I don't understand. I don't even have to fret about the aches and pains of living in this temporary body. Verse 3 says, "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds." (NIV) You have to love that! Praise God for holy Band-Aids of the all-mighty kind!

That was a great devotional, thank you for sharing it, I always look forward to reading all of the devotionals.

This is kinda off of the subject a little, but I feel lead to post it. I taught my little 6 year old neice a song from a soundtract I bought at the Christian bookstore.
I am struggling to remember all the words, I might have to call her, lol.

The chorus goes:
They'll be no Bandaids in Heaven,
No Emergency Medical Care,
They'll be no skinned knees,
No stings from the bees,
They'll be no Bandaids up there.

Everyone just loved her singing that song and they have requested her several times to sing it again.

You should have heard all the questions my neice had when she found out there would be need for bandaids in Heaven.

But Stop and think about all the things that will be missing from heaven.... WoW! No more sickness, No pain, no more death, no more parting, No more tears, and thats just a few of the things!!!!

God Bless You Chad and anyone else reading this. I am always praying for this site, it is a Great Blessing to me!

Love in Christ,
