Are you ready for your healing? Are you ready to experience wholeness head to toe? If so, there are a few things you should know. If you have been around Christian circles for any length of time, you’ve surely heard some false teaching, messages and traditions that would limit your faith and prevent you from accepting the work Jesus has already completed on your behalf.
Those who profess these traditions aren’t bad people. They are merely misguided. In Matthew 15, Jesus dealt with religious people who were putting their traditions above the truth when He said, “you cancel the word of God for the sake of your own tradition” (verse 6). Yesterday we looked at the first 3 things to know about healing, today we look at the final 3.
4. God Still Heals
While some people might try to tell you that healing has passed away, don’t believe it. Healing is still available. God is still in the healing business.
God said, “I am the Lord who heals you” (Exodus 15:26). He didn’t say, I was the Lord who healed you, or I will be the Lord who heals you in heaven someday. He said, I am your Healer—right now, today! “I am the Lord, and I do not change” (Malachi 3:6).
5. Healing Is Always God’s Will
God always desires that you be healed, but He won’t force that healing on you. If you want to be healed, you must cooperate with Him. You must believe His Word and act on it.
At the same time, you must resist the enemy, Satan, who seeks to steal, kill and destroy you (John 10:10). He’s the one who wants to see you sick, in pain and unable to do all God has called you to do. That’s why you must resist Him so that he will flee (James 4:7). How do you do that? With the Word. When thoughts come to your mind that are contrary to the Word of God, speak the Word aloud. Read about Jesus’ temptation in the desert to better understand how to combat the devil and win (Matthew 4).
6. God Wants You to Live a Long Life
Proverbs 3:1-2 says: “My son, forget not my law or teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments; for length of days and years of a life [worth living] and tranquility [inward and outward and continuing through old age till death], these shall they add to you” (AMPC). Those verses paint a picture of what God wants for all of us. He wants our lives to just get better and better. He wants us to enjoy the fulfillment of the promise in Psalm 91:16: “I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”
