God Heals All Who Believe

The Lord is our refuge and our strength. Through Him alone, we have healing. Through Him alone is our salvation. For by God’s grace, Jesus died for our sins so that we might live and believe He is his Son, and by believing, we have healing.

“When he had entered Capernaum, a centurion came forward to him, appealing to him, ‘Lord, my servant is lying paralyzed at home, suffering terribly.’ And he said to him, ‘I will come and heal him.’ But the centurion replied, ‘Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof, but only say the word, and my servant will be healed.’ And to the centurion Jesus said, ‘Go; let it be done for you as you have believed.’ And the servant was healed at that very moment.”

(Matthew 8:5-8,13)

Jesus marveled at the Centurion’s faith, for He had not found such faith in all of Israel. How great a power are our words that God would choose to heal us, if we truly believed God would heal us. No greater power is that of having faith in God.

If God could create the universe and everything in it, if He could move the mountains and say to them, “Here, and no further,” if He could separate the day from the night, if He knows every star by name, how much more is it for Him to strengthen our hearts and heal our wounds?

By God’s mercy and grace, we have salvation. By His Spirit, we have everlasting love. He heals us because it pleases Him, and it is His will. No illness is stronger that He cannot overcome. God heals all who believe.

  1. Amen!

    Gloorrrrrrrry To God!

    We pray for those who are sick, RIGHT NOW, who are reading this message- That THEY BE HEALED by OUR PERFECTED FAITH in the unfailing promises of Christ Jesus, in Jesus name we pray, amen.

    In direct accordance with The Words Of Christ in Matthew 18:19:

    “19 “I also tell you this—if two of you agree down here on earth concerning anything you ask for, my Father in heaven will do it for you. 20 For where two or three gather together because they are mine, I will be right there among them.”

    How many RIGHT NOW, stand in agreement with God’s Divine Promise , so that many may be healed who DO NOT HAVE the necessary faith, but WE DO, therefore we intercede in their behalf to Christ Jesus, so that they may recieve the healing they need, in Jesus name we pray, amen.

    After recieving your healing – go out and testify about God’s Mercy upon you, tell others what He did for you, and then go out and intercede for others, in the name of Jesus.

    ALLLL The Glory To The Holy One Or Israel. Our Redeemer!

  2. We are made whole in the body of Christ….The physical pales in comparison when we have the strength to move mountains by our faith in Him!God Bless your work in Him Jack.

  3. Beautiful, Jack

    Thank you. (Even if we don’t agree on the salvation point)
    Jack did you know that the words ” ‘Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof, but only say the word, and my SOUL shall be healed.’ ” are what all Catholics confess& profess when we receive Jesus in Person, in Catholic Holy Communion?
    Continued Blessings my friend,

    1. Right, Crissy. For whatever reason, God may choose to heal someone in the next lifetime. This is all for His glory and for everything to work out according to His plan. Blessings!

  4. Correct Christ is the Great Healer, Great I Am” but let us also remember that He doesn’t heal every believer physically. For whatever reason He choose to heal them spiritually which is so much better and Christ can use the ones who maybe physically challenge in someway. Many time because my daughter is chronically ill so many Christians judge her lack of faith however she leads a woman’s Bible study with women through our country through Proverbs 31 and I am in awe how God has used her as well. Her view is this: May I bring Glory to God’s Kingdom through the struggles she deals with, of having rare and autoimmune disease, as well as a tumor removed two months ago that had cancer cells in them. There is always a way to witness to someone even when she has been in the hospital.

    1. Amen. God’s will works for all, not only the healed. If He should so choose to heal in this lifetime or the next, then it is His will and not a lack of faith on the part of the one wanting to be healed. He may have a greater plan, and ultimately, He works all things for good. Blessings.

    2. That’s because it is through our hardships, sicknesses, handicaps, that we LEAN on God more. Many people don’t look for him until they are struck with an illness, a debilitating circumstance and then are forced to.

      When we are weak, HE IA STRONG IN US.

      Do whatever it takes my Lord, to put me on the right track and save my soul.
      In Jesus name, amen.

      1. Amen….glory to God that He has. Same for me. But I have witnessed the following happen- the Good Lord try, and try, and try, to reach people…but they continue pushing away, ignoring, etc….He keeps calling them…and after some time….if needed the things can happen to place that person in a position they didn’t have to be in. Let’s say an accidnt. That causes a broken leg. Some will say- the Lord don’t work that way. To which i say…you don’t understand then what is more.important. If the broken leg, causes someone to depend upon God….for strength, or to be at home and not working….and it gives them an opportunity to grow and get closer to God…is that broken leg not worth it then? God is trying to save our souls….not our bodies.

        If we continue rejecting, and rejecting…the measures taken can get even more drastic. But in the end, the most important thing is to save our soul….so whatever is necessary. We should be thankful God loves us enough to even continue pulling on us, tugging on us…

        I see so many who sudde my get into an accident and are immobile…and that’s so they can give all that free time to God. And i tell them this. Don’t wait, do it now! Can you not see? Take a look around. You can barely move now….and u still want to fight against God?

        We should be inviting take any measure necessary , if our soul is in jeopardy of going to hell. Nobody wants to be there. Ever.
        God bless.

      2. There are times many people are not ready to hear even from God because their hearts can be harden for many different reasons. We are to plant the seed of hope and faith, and the way we live our own lives says a lot, because we are the first Bible other read. Too many Christians judge others and that turns someone away from God if we begin to be more like Christ and less of ourselves and to love the way he loves us we will make a different. God doesn’t cause any accident or illness. I have a daughter who is chronically ill with rare diseases and adrenal cancer., she has been sick most of her life and yet everyday she finds something to be thankful for. As I have said many times over the years when I have preach it is easy to praise God on the mountain top when everything in our lives are going well, however it is when we are in the pit of the valley and our walls seems to be crashing in, if you can continue to Praise the Lord that is a person with great faith.

      3. Amen. Yes indeed.

        He himself may not cause it. But he can order those wheels to be placed in motion. Have you read the account of Samuel? 1 Samuel 16:14

        But the spirit of the Lord left Saul, and instead the Lord had sent a tormenting spirit that filled him with depression and fear.

        Ive heard the same thing my whole life…God does do this. Or God doesn’t do that. Because they think He wouldn’t. And that’s because they attribute or view the act as a negative act. When in fact they have no idea what is good or bad. Only ALMIGHTY God does. I don’t know what is good or bad either. All I see is isolated events. Singular. So if i take one account, or one occurrence that does not appeal to my eyes, or my liking, that doesn’t mean it’s not A GOOD THING. After all, God is the one that sees the entire picture. People wouldn’t say God doesn’t cause accidents or sickness, if that sickness or accident brings that person closer to God. They would say thank you Jesus! Thank you because i was on my way to hell, and you prevented that through this accident. I’ve learned that i can’t say what God would do or not do. But from that account I shared, and what i seen in life…everything God does is good. We just fail to see it that way sometimes. God bless.

      4. Thank you for sharing what you know about God, and for having the faith you have in Him. And thanks to your daughter for giving us strength and being an example to encourage others. God bless you each with more of Himself, in Jesus name, amen.
