Healing Is for You

Healing Is for You

The day of miracles is not past. God is still alive, well, and working just as powerfully as ever amongst those who trust in Him. He says, “I am the Lord, I do not change.”

To heal is a small thing for the God of all creation. If He created the body, He can certainly fix it. He says, “I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?”

This is only one of many promises of healing that can be found in the Bible—promises that you can claim as your own and expect Him to fulfill. This is also where your faith for His supernatural healing will come from. Faith comes, it grows, by reading and believing the Word of God. Faith is built on the Word, so read it prayerfully and ask God to strengthen your faith.

God not only can heal you, but He wants to heal you. A leper once came to Jesus and said, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.” Jesus touched the man and said, “I am willing; be cleansed,” and immediately the man’s leprosy was cleansed. He’s more willing to give than we are to receive. All He asks is that we honor Him with faith by believing His promises.

 

Prayer Power

Prayer is powerful. When we pray, things will happen and things will be different. God will answer prayer. He promises, “If you ask anything in My name, I will do it,” and “No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.” You’ve got these and all of the other “exceeding great and precious promises” in the Bible on your side, so when you pray for healing or anything else, bring those promises with you to remind God of His Word. Doing so is a positive declaration of your faith, which pleases Him.

You usually don’t see the blessing—His healing, in this case—the instant you begin praying for it. You have His promises in His Word, but how do you know He’s going to keep them? You’ve got to put those promises to the test. You’ve got to challenge God. He even tells us, “Concerning the work of My hands, you command Me.” So hold Him to His Word. Expect an answer. He has promised it. Put your faith in the Lord. He is bound by His Word, so remind Him of His promises, cling to them, and never doubt for a moment that He is going to answer—and He will. He has to. He wants to. Trust Him.

Jesus says, “Whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” All we have to do is believe His promises, pray, and expect Him to answer.

 

The “test of faith”

One of the greatest of healing factors is faith—knowing that God loves us and is concerned about our health and happiness, and that He is going to take care of us no matter what. But He often tests our faith before He heals us, because He wants to see if we’ll believe His promises and continue to love and trust Him even if we think we may never get healed. Before He honors us with healing, He wants to see if we will honor Him with faith.

Ongoing illnesses are sometimes a severe test, and sad to say, they sometimes end in bitterness, complaining, and even holding a grievance against God because He doesn’t heal the way the person wants Him to or thinks He should. “God doesn’t love me! He doesn’t care, because He won’t heal me.” That sort of reaction is the opposite of faith, and “without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

God can and wants to heal us, but we must first make the decision that we want what He wants and knows is best for us, without reservations. We must also do our part by first correcting any physical or spiritual problems that may be contributing factors. Then we can pray and trust God for our healing, and we’re bound to get results.

Matthew 4:23 NIV Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.

Matthew 17:14 NIV When they came to the crowd, a man approached Jesus and knelt before him.

Luke 8:26 NIV They sailed to the region of the Gerasenes, which is across the lake from Galilee.
