Grace for Healing

Print

When we face sickness or illness, many of us may have to fight the mindset that says we must simply resign ourselves to it. The world tries to instill in us the attitude that pain and suffering is part of life, and therefore we must accept it. This kind of thinking isn’t God’s will for believers. Under the Law of Moses, ill health and disease were part of the curses that resulted from breaking any part of the law; however, things have changed since then.

God deals with man according to covenants. The old covenant was all about punishment and condemnation, but that agreement ended when Jesus came. Jesus went to the cross to redeem us from the law, and all its associated curses. Believing in what He did brings us out from being under the curse, and moves us under the blessing of Abraham that God offers to us all.

Our trust in God positions us to receive all the blessings He wants to heap on us; however, disbelief blocks supernatural manifestations. When Jesus went from town to town healing those who came to Him, their faith allowed them to receive miracles. When He came to His own country, He could do no mighty work, and He marveled at their unbelief.

Under the new covenant of grace that Jesus established, our healing has already been made available; our faith is the key to receiving it. The centurion soldier believed so strongly in Jesus’ authority to heal that when the soldier simply took Jesus at His word, his servant was healed that very hour. When the woman who had suffered from a bleeding disorder for twelve years had enough faith in Jesus to push her way through the crowds to touch His robe, her faith made her whole. That same healing power is available to us today, on any level we need it.

Prayer:

God, the world tries to complicate healing, but Your Word makes it very simple. Our acts of faith to do what is necessary start the process; our belief in the undeserved, unearned favor You have toward us completes it. We’re grateful for that. In Jesus’ name, amen.
