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. 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,
    Patrick

    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!

  2. 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.
    Blessings

    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.
