We tend to associate healing with the physical body. When someone asks you to pray for them, they usually ask for physical healing. Yes, God heals our bodies. He can heal miraculously through His Divine nature, or He can heal through doctors and modern medicine. God also bestows the gift of healing onto certain people, usually called faith healers. Healing can be in an instant, or over a period of time. One thing we can be certain of is that God in His wisdom and mercy performs His healing to perfection. God also heals our troubles. He wants us to take our problems to him, whether they be financial, emotional, or our relationships. God also heals our souls. We are not just flesh. We are made up of three parts. We have a mind, a body and a soul. God wants us to be whole, complete and unless each part of our being is not aligned properly, we cannot function properly. God wants us to have health, joy and peace.
“When Jesus came into Peter’s house, he saw Peter’s mother-in-law lying in bed with a fever. He touched her hand and the fever left her, and she got up and began to wait on him. When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick. This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: ”He took up our infirmities and carried our diseases.” Matt. 8:14-14
It was God who brought Israel to Marah. He brought them here to teach them and to make Himself known to them, and to teach us and make Himself known to us. (I Cor.10:11) as Jehovah-Rapha – ‘the Lord that healeth thee” (Ex. 15:25-26).
Psalms 30:2 ”Oh Lord my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.”
“Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.” Prov. 12:18
