I was very ill 2 years ago, according to the medical profession I should still be very ill as I had a life long debilitating untreatable condition. God is so good, I was healed and leaped up from my sick bed on June 25 2008. It was and is totally amazing! I am so excited about what I am discovering about God. Since then I have shared some of what I am learning with many people and have seen God at work over and over again as people, who receive the good news with joy, are getting healed!
I have been a christian for many years, I knew that God could heal and that sometimes it happens today just like in the Bible days but I never expected it would happen to me. The teaching I have had in church over many years left me with the understanding that we are supposed to keep asking God for healing in the hope that one day He might decide to heal, maybe. Well, I am so grateful to a lady who visited and told me that it is always God’s will to heal! (That was a very strange concept to me as I see so many people sick and have prayed many times for people and had never seen them healed) She explained that God doesn’t pick and choose who, or when, but that when Jesus died on the cross He provided ALL that is needed to make ALL of us completely whole with forgiveness AND healing. It was very hard for me to believe this because of many years of understanding God very differently and because I am used to judging God by what I see around me (all the sick people) rather than seeing the world around me through God’s eyes and in the light of His word.
Every example of healing throughout the Bible (old and new testament) God never refused to heal anyone who came to Him. Those who believed what God said and looked to the bronze serpent in the desert were healed, and those who came to Jesus believing He would heal them, were healed. That doesn’t mean that everyone was healed…. those who didn’t follow the instructions to look at the bronze serpent weren’t healed, the people who didn’t come to Jesus weren’t healed.
But it seemed to me that God was refusing to heal me…. I had been praying and asking for healing for many months. Many people from church had also prayed with me and nothing had happened. So what changed?
Well, I discovered that although I am a christian and have faith, my lack of knowledge and belief about God’s healing got in the way of me receiving it. As I didn’t know that God had already healed me (in the spiritual realm) I couldn’t believe deep down in my heart that it was true. I had a lot of seeking God and learning to do. I spent much time seeking God by reading His word and asking God to reveal His truth to me.
God is so faithful, little by little He helped me get past all the excuses I had for not believing what I now know is true. One day God was able to really get through to me and helped me to receive the healing that He paid for 2000 years ago, and was ready for me the first time I asked, and even before I ever got sick! So what changed? Not God. Me. My knowledge, my believing and my expectation.
Maybe this sounds as strange to you as it did to me. My best advice to you if you want to see God healing today is get stuck into His word. The Bible is alive and God has sent His Holy Spirit to reveal the truth to us as we seek first His Kingdom. It is Gods word deep in our hearts which allows God to move in our lives. May His Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven! I pray that as you seek God and get to know Him and His love for you more and more that you will see His Kingdom come on earth in your own life and those around you!
1Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual[a] act of worship. 2Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
