Believe for Your Healing

Did you know that God wants you to be healed? That’s right. God wants His people healed.

When Jesus was here on earth, the Bible tells us over and over again that He went about teaching the good news and healing all who were sick and afflicted (Acts 10:38). Jesus believed healing was so important that He even healed on the Sabbath day (Mark 3:1-6). That was against the custom of the day, but Jesus healed anyway.

Now, Jesus said that He didn’t say or do anything unless His Father told Him to. “For I have not spoken on My own authority: but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. And I know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak, just as the Father has told Me, so I speak” (John 12:49-50).

Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.” That means what it says—Jesus has not changed. The things He wanted to accomplish in the past, He wants to accomplish today. If Jesus healed the sick in the past, then He will heal the sick today.

Most Christians believe that God has the power to heal. They believe that God has healed and occasionally performs miracle healings today from time to time. But many of these same Christians do not believe that healing is for them.

Let me ask you this. Is it possible that you could wake up tomorrow and the illness or sickness that has afflicted you for years would be gone? Is it possible that the disease that has come upon you and drained your finances could be completely eliminated? Well, the answer is yes! Is it possible for everybody? No! It’s not for everybody. It’s only possible for those who believe.

In Mark 6, Jesus went to His hometown of Nazareth. His intentions were to do the same thing there He did everywhere else—preach the gospel (the good news of the kingdom) and heal the sick. At Nazareth, however, He was unable to do any great miracles. Let’s look at the Bible, the Word of God, and see why.

Verses 5 and 6 say, “Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them. And He marveled because of their unbelief.”

Belief is essential in healing, and that’s where Satan attacks. If Satan can get us to doubt that healing is for us, then healing will be difficult.

Satan’s will for you is sickness, disease, and death. Satan’s will for your life is totally opposite to the will of God for you. We’ve seen God’s will and Satan’s will in John 10:10.

Remember, it says, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” Sadly, many Christians believe that healing does exist, but they don’t truly believe it can happen to them.

If we don’t believe that we can be healed, we are like the people of Nazareth. They didn’t believe, so they didn’t receive. If you have sickness in your body, then I encourage you to believe that Jesus not only can heal, but that He will heal you.

God’s will is that you be healed.
