The Bible speaks about God's healing. Read here how it could apply to you today.
The Bible talks about God as a God of love. God loves you and wants to be your heavenly Father.
When Jesus Christ was here on earth, He healed many people who were sick. When He died on the cross, He took the penalty for our sins. The Bible says in Isaiah 53, "Surely He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered Him stricken by God, smitten by Him, and afflicted. But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed."
In the New Testament in the book of James, Paul said "Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up."
Here are some ideas if you are sick.
- Make sure you are a child of God. Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? If so, you have become a child of God.
- Ask God in faith to heal you. According to your faith be it unto you. God loves you and you can pray and ask Him to heal you!
- Realize God heals in different ways. God may lead you to exercise or eat in a certain way. He may lead you to doctors who He can use to heal you. And God can heal you divinely by His touch. He may also want to accomplish certain things in your life even through your illness.
Be patient; ask in faith; and trust God. He loves you and wants to bring good in your life!
