In our quest to receive God’s healing, bold, confident faith begins with becoming absolutely convinced that it is God’s will to heal. To heal now. To heal you. In this short teaching, we will review three primary threads of evidence that establish the will of God for healing:
- God’s nature. He is good. Sickness is not good. God does only good. In Exodus 15, He calls Himself Jehovah Rapha, “I AM Healer.” It’s not only what He does, it’s who He is. Acts 10:38 / Exodus 15;26 / Psalm 118:1 et al
- The work of redemption. Forgiveness of sin and physical healing are inextricably tied together. The same sacrifice that purchased our salvation from sin also paid for our healing. Therefore, the same faith that received forgiveness is also sufficient to receive healing! Isaiah 53:3,5 10 / Matthew 8:17 / Psalm 103:1-5 / Luke 17:5-6
- The example of Jesus. Jesus walked the earth as a perfect representation of the Father. He always did the will of the Father. How did Jesus approach sickness? Answer that question by reading the gospels, and you have a perfect statement of God’s will.
“(8) Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.” (9) Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? “John 14:8-9 NKJV
