God’s original plan for man in the Garden of Eden was a life without sickness or disease. Sin brought these things into the world. The Old Testament records several healings brought about by God. Additionally, Jesus spent a great deal of time healing the sick. It’s pretty clear that God desires for us to walk around in healthy bodies.
All Bible-believing Christians should agree God is capable of healing individuals. If you believe God wants you well, nothing should stand in your way! Consider the following tools:
- Prayer: Begin praying for yourself. James 5:14 also tells us to call on others for pray for physical healing. Prayer chains can be extremely effective.
- Scripture repetition: Some Christians say they were healed by repeating daily healing Scriptures like: “…by his stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5).
- Gift of healing: Healing is listed as a spiritual gift in 1Cor. 12:9. Some famous televangelists claim to have this gift, but they are not the only ones. Ask around.
- Laying on of hands: Having a stranger lay hands on you may feel strange, but Jesus did it and brought about healing (see Mark 6:5). Christians who want healing should invite God to heal through the hands of other Christians.
- Listening to praise/worship music: Hospitalized people have credited praise and worship music for bringing healing to their bodies.
This list of ways God can bring about healing should not take the place of medical care. Doctors are not gods, but God can choose to heal you through a doctor’s care! Remember God loves you and wants to give you a healthy body.
Lord, I pray for the physical healing of Your people. Thank You that You want us to have life and have it to the fullest. We praise You that You are the Great Physician. In Christ’s Name, Amen.
