God Our Healer
I am called into the healing ministry after being sick from one aliment to another.
During my childhood years I lived with a relative of my mother; at age nine my guardian became so afraid that I might die, as a result returned me to my biological mother. The sickness grew worse even when with mother, from malaria to Jaundice fever, to eye problems, until I became an adult. The sickness saga continued till I became blind for a while, then recovered my sight but during the cause of treatment, the hospital damaged one of my eyeball. In spite of all of the above, there is always one ailment or the other popping up in my life, the beauty of all of these is that I have faith in God very early in life..
The awesome power of the Almighty God over my life is that I never read the word of God by myself except through the church hymns, listening to preaching’s and learning from everyday life with all that’s happening all over. When I was about to die for the seventh time a friend took me to her church, and I became a little okay. But after a couple of years I discovered that I was in the wrong church, for I was being fed with food spiritually, then I began to seek for a living church, where I got born again there. Henceforth, I began to dream and seeing vision and was being led spiritually.
It was then I realised that I have found my purpose in life, for if God can save me from all those near death syndromes in my life, I felt it’s my duty to find a way of telling my story to those who are in the same position or someone in similar position that I use to be. One thing with Satan and his demons is that when the anointing of God or calling of God is upon your life, they try relentlessly to frustrate that soul, whereby you begin to doubt if there is God; hence why go through life suffering from one sickness or infirmity to another, but eventually I realize it was for a purpose.
Jesus said that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses. Matthew 8: 16-17, also in Isaiah 53:4 say surely he hath borne our grief’s, and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. “When you don’t know the power of the Most High, you gets expose to all sorts in life, but when you find Him, endeavour to hold on tight to Him, for with Him there is redemption.
Psalm 23 has been my favourite psalm most of my life especially verse 6; that says surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
You do not have to be sick before God heals you, and if you’ll have faith, He will heal you!
Sounds like an incredible statement to make, but it’s true. The fact that you are reading this article, you on your way to living in divine health.
The key to receive your healing from God is to have FAITH! Jesus often said to those he healed, “Your faith has made you whole.”
Did you know what Matthew 13:58 said about lack of faith “And Jesus did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith.”?
Well, if doubt could stop God’s healing power, then faith releases God’s healing power. So all we need is FAITH. And since faith comes from hearing God’s Word Romans 10:17 it is important that you understand what the Bible says about divine healing.
If we reject His Word, then we reject His healing grace. Unfortunately, there are many supposedly Bible-believing Christians that reject what God says about His healing power.
They reject it basically on two grounds; either because some people do experience some form of delay for their healing to manifest after prayer or because of tradition or unbelief. Point is, no one has ever rejected God’s healing power based solely on the Word of God. If anyone with an open mind and could trust what the Bible says will eventually become a believer in God’s healing power.
JESUS STILL HEALS
It is clear from the Bible that Jesus healed often. His ministry consisted of three things:
“Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in the synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.” Matthew 4:23. Healing was not a side issue with Christ; it was one of the main issues with Him.
What about today? Does Jesus still heal? Listen to Hebrews 13:8: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.” Jesus still heals. He has not stopped healing. Some people are surprised that Jesus still heals.
Jesus heals. So if in doubt I guess you do not believe in Jesus or the Bible.
If the above is the case then why are you so upset when Jesus does such a great miracle in the life of others? The Bible tells us He did many miracles, and it also reveals that He continued to do miracles through the apostles and through other disciples; proves that Jesus STILL HEALS And He can heal you, if you will let Him.
Someone might say, Yea, I believe Jesus still heals, but He doesn’t want to heal everyone, well then listen to the Word of God. Many followed Jesus, and He healed all their sickness. Matthew 12:15.
How many sick people did Jesus heal?
All not few, not most but the Bible clearly states all sickness and disease. It is God’s will to heal every believer. Now where do we find in the scriptures that Jesus refused to heal anyone who came to Him in faith? He healed everyone who believed without exception.
Not only did Jesus heal everyone while He was on earth, but to ensure our healing for today, He paid for it:
Another good reason that we should have faith for healing is this; sickness is of the devil. And whatever is of the devil, we don’t want anything to do with it. “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with Him.” Acts10:38.
And after healing a woman who was crippled by a spirit, Jesus said, “Should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, who SATAN HAS KEPT BOUND for eighteen long years, be set free” Luke 13:16.
From these scriptures and many others, we see that sickness is not caused by God but by Satan. And God tells us, that we should resist the devil and he will flee from us James 4:7. We do not have to put up with anything that comes from the devil, and that includes sickness.
ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH
So the issue then is this; what will you believe?
The blind men came to Jesus and asked Him to heal them. Jesus asked them, do you believe that I am able to do this?’ ‘Yes, Lord, they replied. Then he touched their eyes and said, ‘ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH will it be done to you. Matthew 9:28-29.
God will do for you “according to your belief.” If you believe Jesus still heals and that it is His will to heal everyone including you…If you believe that He paid the price for your healing…If you also believe that sickness is of the devil, and that you have authority over him…
Then you have begun your faith journey to walk in health.
