IS DIVINE HEALING REAL?
Main text: Psalm 6:2 (NIV) – Have mercy on me, LORD, for I am faint. Heal me, LORD, for my bones are in agony.
Second text: Isaiah 58:8 (NIV) – Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.
Healing is defined as a state of making something whole or well, as in Ecclesiastes 3:3. At the start of His ministry, 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 4:23).
Later, when Jesus sent His twelve disciples out to preach the gospel, He gave them authority to heal the sick (Luke 9:1-2). After Jesus‟ resurrection and ascension, the apostles continued healing many (Acts 5:12-16). The book of Acts records a number of healings by Peter, John, and Paul (19:12; 28:8-9). So to answer the question is divine healing real? Of course yes!
Exodus 15:26: He said, “If you will diligently listen to the voice of the Lord your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give ear to his commandments and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you that I put on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, your healer.”
His words are yes and Amen. But Faith without works is useless.” James 2:20. Essentially, once God does His part, we must do our part, He heals us and we maintain the healing.
May the Lord open our mind to His truth always.
