There is Power in the Blood

Last summer I hurt my thumb and wow, did it hurt. It took a while to get to the root of the problem but I was finally diagnosed with tendinitis. A shot of cortisone and I was much better for about five months. However, a new pain appeared in my elbow. You guessed it, tendinitis again. Really? I opted to go for Physical Therapy rather than the cortisone shot this time. The shot in my thumb helped but it really hurt. While receiving therapy for my elbow I was informed that one of the goals of therapy was to increase the blood flow in the tendons. “There is healing in the blood,” said the therapist. He explained that the blood flows to the most important organs first. The tendons are last on the list so it takes longer to heal.

Despite physical therapy my elbow pain would not give up. I had to get that shot into my elbow. Ouch! When the doctor was preparing to give me the shot in the elbow he said he would hit the bone with the needle a few times to get more blood flow released to the tendon area. He said, “There is healing in the blood.”

Today dear, one be encouraged; there can be healing in our blood, but there is One who shed His blood for you and I and there is ALWAYS healing in His blood. Review the words to the old song, “There is Power In The Blood” and let’s live like we believe it! Give thanks… there is truly real, wonder- working power in the blood of JESUS! Hallelujah!

“There Is Power In The Blood”
Would you be free from the burden of sin?
There’s power in the blood, power in the blood
Would you o’er evil a victory win?
There’s wonderful power in the blood

There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the blood of the Lamb
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the precious blood of the Lamb

Would you be free from your passion and pride
There’s power in the blood, power in the blood
Come for a cleansing to Calvary’s tide
There’s wonderful power in the blood

There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the blood of the Lamb
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the precious blood of the Lamb

Would you be whiter, much whiter than snow?
There’s power in the blood, power in the blood
Sin stains are lost in its life-giving flow
There’s wonderful power in the blood

There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the blood of the Lamb
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the precious blood of the Lamb

There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the blood of the Lamb
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the precious blood of the Lamb
