Sickness can be a difficult time in life. And with an increase in incurable diseases there often comes a desperation and hopelessness when one is faced with illness.
A common question that is often asked by non-believers is does Jesus still heal or are miracles things of the past.
Well, the answer is simple. If we believe that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever, then we can also believe that he is able to do what he did yesterday, today and forever.
So, in dealing with the issue of spiritual healing, I decided to look at three verses and what they can teach us on how to attain healing from God.
- If we need God to heal us we should fear him. Fearing God is not the same as unbelief. Fearing God is obeying his commandments and living in godliness, righteousness and truth.
But to you who fear My name the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; And you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves.
3 You shall trample the wicked, For they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I do this,” Says the Lord of hosts.
2. The Lord is Faithful and waiting to heal us of any diseases we may have if we turn to him. Sin and iniquity can lead to disease but the Lord’s forgiveness will bring healing.
Behold, I will bring it health and healing; I will heal them and reveal to them the abundance of peace and truth.
7 And I will cause the captives of Judah and the captives of Israel to return, and will rebuild those places as at the first.
8 I will cleanse them from all their iniquity by which they have sinned against Me, and I will pardon all their iniquities by which they have sinned and by which they have transgressed against Me.
9 Then it shall be to Me a name of joy, a praise, and an honor before all nations of the earth, who shall hear all the good that I do to them; they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and all the prosperity that I provide for it.’
3. Humility draws us closer to God and his healing presence. Prayer and seeking the Lord in sincerity will cause him to heal our bodies, our loved ones, our life and our Land.
If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 15 Now My eyes will be open and My ears
2 Chronicles 7:14-15
Do we want the Lord to heal our Land and our Lives?
Then let’s turn to him and start to live in righteousness and godliness.
