I believe, and most Christians will tell you they believe, all healing comes from God. However, I never cease to be amazed when someone raises the question of whether God still heals people today.
And, I also believe that healing is God’s will, it’s for today and I believe it’s for you!
God said in Malachi 3:6, For I am the Lord, I change not. And the Bible tells us in Hebrews 13:8 that Jesus Christ—God’s only Son, who was the representation of the Father in the earth—is the same yesterday, today and forever. So, the answer to the question of whether or not He still heals today is an emphatic Yes!
In my life and ministry, I’ve seen many, many healing miracles. I’ve ministered in more than thirty countries around the world and have witnessed healings in every one of those countries.
God can and does heal in a variety of ways… He uses prayer aligned with our faith, He uses doctors and medicines and He will use climate, diet, exercise and thinking good thoughts. He sometimes uses a “point of contact” such as prayer cloths or anointing oil. The apostle Paul used a point of contact in his ministry when he placed cloths upon people who were ill or demon-possessed…cloths which had touched his own body… and special miracles occurred.
But whether it is physical healing, emotional healing, financial healing, or healing in a relationship, God wants you to know that it is His will to heal you. He’s still in the miracle-working business and He has not taken down His “Open for Business” sign.
In Matthew 6:10, Jesus taught His disciples—and us—how to pray. It’s known commonly as “The Lord’s Prayer.” In it, He teaches us to pray for His will to be done on earth, as it is in Heaven.
Well, what are things like in Heaven? It’s a place where there is no pain, no sin, no loneliness, poverty or sickness. So, we can conclude that it is indeed God’s will to set His people free from such things here on earth.
Jesus knew His Father’s will and that He had been given the authority to forgive sin and to heal. And that’s exactly how Jesus lived His life during His earthly ministry, demonstrating Heaven and representing the Father. Through Jesus’ death on the Cross and through His resurrection, He purchased both your forgiveness and your healing. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5).
Jesus is—today—a Healing Jesus. And I believe He wants to heal you!
