We read of Jesus going from town to town healing the sick of all kinds of diseases, mental illnesses, and even demon possession. Do we believe these stories to be fact or symbolic? Do we believe they were true for then and not for today? Does God Really Heal?
From Genesis to Revelation, the bible is filled with scriptures where God talks of healing people and what people need to do to be healed and or to have health. Abraham prayed and God healed Abimalec, his wife and his maidservants and everyone in his household. This means we can pray and every person in our house can have total health if we believe.
Many people believe that God can heal, but that healing is only for certain people. They are right. The certain people that healing is for are those who believe. So if you can believe in healing, then you are the “certain people” that God will heal. Everyone has probably heard of miracle situations and have taken them lightly. This is only because they did not experience it firsthand.
If a miracle happened to you, you would not be able to take such a thing lightly. While Jesus performed miracles and healed people, all healing is not the result of a miracle. When you cut yourself, your skin naturally heals over a period of time. God created our bodies to naturally rejuvenate and regenerate itself. We just have to cooperate.
Divine Healing & Miracles
Did you know that all of us have access to “divine healing” if we treat our bodies as the temple that God created them to be? Our current society is not designed to help us produce maximum health in our bodies. We have to do certain things on purpose by educating ourselves how to take care of our bodies (temples).
There are cases where healing is instant. Someone may pray for an individual or lay hands on them or something else may occur and a person has an instant healing. This still happens today. I have had it happen to me. I was healed of a heart condition. I went from going to ER regularly because of chest pain and being extremely exhausted because my heart worked over-time to being fully productive and no chest pain and no exhaustion.
Now although I was instantly healed of that condition, I still had to recondition my heart to make it stronger. I also had to change my diet by reducing caffeine, exercising and drinking enough water. Healing is one of those things if it ever happens to you, you just know it. You don’t know how and you can’t explain how it works. You are just happy with Christian videos did.
A Note about Instant Healing
After you have been prayed for and healed, you may experience symptoms every once in a while to remind you of that condition, but don’t accept those symptoms. Symptoms lie. You can speak to your body and the symptoms will disappear. For instance, I speak to my heart and command it to function properly. I command my body to function the way it is supposed to. Even when I eat, I bless the food and command it to energize me and add the necessary nutrients to my body. I still know and have no doubt that I am healed
When Healing is a Process
Sometimes healing is a process. You may pray to God for healing or someone may pray for you and it takes some time. But little by little you see the results until they are complete. Sometimes you may have to be under the care of a doctor, does this void out God’s healing you? No, it does not. A doctor can be a part of God’s process.
There may also be cases where an instant “manifestation” of healing occurs during a prayer service and when you go home, you feel the symptoms again. The healing exists; you just have to continue the process of recovery. The bible tells us that those of us who believe would receive His power and we shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. Recovering is a process. During the recovery process ask God what it is you should be doing to cooperate with your recovery.
God does still heal today. I have experienced his healing power over and over and can tell others about it. I have also seen others who have experienced His healing power. God does not just heal our physical bodies; he heals us emotionally and mentally as well.
How to Get Healing From God
There are natural things we can do to maintain health but sometimes it is not enough as it is not always the root cause of sickness. Sin or sickness cannot dwell in God’s presence.
The way to get healed is to purify yourself. To purify yourself is to cleanse yourself of all sin, ill feelings and bitterness. Ask God to empower you with His Holy Spirit so that you can live a pure life of obedience to Him.
Sing praises to God and have genuine fellowship with Him by praying and communicating with Him. Empty your heart of all evil thinking. As the bible says, think on what is good, pure, and righteous of a good report. To do this, you must forgive. Forgiveness is all some people need to do and they will be completely healed of whatever is wrong with them.
Obey God’s word and his commandments. Practice a true life of worship and holiness. Don’t wait or depend on going to church to get you into a holy atmosphere. Practice having a holy atmosphere in your own home. This is how to access God’s healing power.
I pray for the reader of this page that you be genuinely healed from head to toe. I pray that your emotions are healed, your mind, soul and physical body. I also pray that God opens your eyes and gives you specific wisdom you need to maintain the health He has promised us, in Jesus’ name.
