Healing is for you
Jesus perfectly demonstrated the will of God in all he did, including every single person he healed.
He healed everyone who came to him.
Jesus’ heart to heal is as alive and active everywhere in the world today, just as it was in 1st-century Israel. There is no situation too desperate, prognosis too dire, or disease too dark for the light of Jesus to penetrate. Let hope spark in your heart today. Our God is better than we thought and He’s the one on the throne!
In the Psalms, David encourages us to:
“Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases…”

Have you asked these questions?
How did Jesus’ death at the cross impact my health?
Isaiah 53:4-5 says that Jesus would take up our pain and bear our suffering. This verse boldly declares that “by his wounds we are healed.” Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection utterly defeated sin and death. At the cross, Jesus paid for our spiritual salvation, our emotional and mental freedom, and our physical healing. By Jesus’ wounds, we are healed!
What’s the significance of Jesus healing all who came to him?
Jesus is the image of the invisible God (Colossians 1:15) and “the exact representation of his nature” (Hebrews 1:3). When we have questions about God’s will to heal, we can look to Jesus and see God’s will clearly demonstrated. Acts 10:38 states that Jesus healed every person who came to him for healing – this demonstrated God’s will to heal every single person. No exceptions.
When God says He’ll meet our needs, does that mean our health needs, too?
Absolutely! Philippians 4:19 says, “And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Every need means exactly that, EVERY need!
If this is true, why am I sick?
As believers, our call is to see everything Jesus bought and paid for on the earth. We are the place where the Kingdom of God touches the people, problems, and policies around us. In other words, our mandate is, “On earth as it is in heaven.”
However, this world is in process; the war is won but the battle still wages. The Kingdom of God is here and on the way. Our current situations do not determine our prayers or change the reality of what Jesus accomplished. Scripture sets our hope, our belief, and the aim of our prayers.
