The Balm in Gilead

Jeremiah 46:11 - “Go up to Gilead to get medicine, O virgin daughter of Egypt! But your many treatments will bring you no healing.

There is a Balm in Gilead…His name is Jesus

Mark 7:31-37 - Jesus left Tyre and went up to Sidon before going back to the Sea of Galilee and the region of the Ten Towns.  A deaf man with a speech impediment was brought to him, and the people begged Jesus to lay his hands on the man to heal him.  Jesus led him away from the crowd so they could be alone. He put his fingers into the man’s ears. Then, spitting on his own fingers, he touched the man’s tongue.  Looking up to heaven, he sighed and said, “Ephphatha,” which means, “Be opened!”  Instantly the man could hear perfectly, and his tongue was freed so he could speak plainly!  Jesus told the crowd not to tell anyone, but the more he told them not to, the more they spread the news.  They were completely amazed and said again and again, “Everything he does is wonderful. He even makes the deaf to hear and gives speech to those who cannot speak.”
