The Healing Power of God

The blind can see, the lame can walk and the dead rise! This was happening when Jesus was here on earth. But does this happen today? I believe it does. We need to have faith that Jesus heals, belief that Jesus is the only way to the Father and that He is God's son sent to die for us, repentant of the sins we commit and a willingness to change our ways. I think the key to healing is to confess our sins and the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

Job 5:8-9 NIV                                                                                      Nikon Sniper Mt. St. Helens
8 “But if I were you, I would appeal to God;
   I would lay my cause before him.
9 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed,
   miracles that cannot be counted."

James 5:13-16 NIV
 13 Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the   sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. 16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

How do we become righteous? Easy. First we need to believe Jesus is God's son. Romans 10:9 NIV If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Keep our eyes on Jesus, when we do sin repent of that sin ask Jesus for forgiveness and if we have sinned against someone we need also ask them for forgiveness. Accept the forgiveness from Jesus and believe we are truly forgiven. We also need to look at when we have communion with our church...

1 Corinthians 11:27-31NIV
27 So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. 28 Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink from the cup. 29 For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves. 30 That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep. 31 But if we were more discerning with regard to ourselves, we would not come under such judgment.
If we take part in communion while we have un-confessed sin or anger at someone, we really should make it right with that person before we commune, or just pass on the communion until your heart is right with God again, for we see that this could be a reason we are sick. 

Jesus is perfect and He hears His Fathers voice and does what He says, so when He prayed God answered Him. But can we do this? Can we a people leaning towards sin do this too? Yes! When we become Christians our sinful nature dies with Christ and we become new in Him. We are righteous in front of God because of what Jesus accomplished on the cross. Yes, we still sin, but the original sin nature is gone. We are pure; white as snow! When we do sin we need to make it right then we can hear God's voice clearly and He will answer our prayers. Sometimes we need to wait for His timing just like Jesus waited before He went to see Lazarus when he was ill and sometimes we get the answer no, just like Paul got when he asked God to remove his affliction and sometimes it is instant. We need to trust God and have faith that His will will be done.

I am not a perfect person, just ask my husband or my kids they will tell you I sure do mess up, but I do have the hope I read in Scripture and the promises of God's word. I believe do you?

If this raises any questions in you please ask and I will do my best to answer, or direct you to an answer. This really is a huge area to cover and I really only scratched the surface. Here is a cool web site I found on Divine Healing, A Bible study on God's Healing Power. 

May God's peace rest on you and I will be praying for those who asked for prayer.

In Him,

  6. Thank you Lisa.

    How did those test results turn out? You can email me I would love to hear.


  7. I too believe!! :) My dad has been battling with multiple sclerosis for a year and a half now. While his sickness has been extremely difficult and trying at times, we do see it as an opportunity for the work of God to be displayed in our family's life! There have been several times when the doctors basically declared something 'impossible' when it came to my dad's recovery during past exacerbations--but GOD proved otherwise, making the impossible possible through Jesus Christ!! ...It really is encouraging to see God's healing power still at work. :)

    Thank you so much for your kind comment and for following my blog! May God's peace rest on you as well.
