The Miracle of God's
Divine Healing Power

Divine healing is an act of God, something that we do not understand because it transcends our experience, and lies beyond the scope of the laws of nature so far as ascertained by us.
Divine Healing is an act of God, by the direct power of the Holy Spirit, by which the physical body is delivered from sickness and disease and restored to soundness and health.

The greater number of miracles recorded in the Gospels were miracles of healing.
And are "signs" to us of His power to heal the sin-sick souls.

The saving act of faith, believing on the Lord Jesus Christ, is expressed under various similes. It is called coming to Him, looking to Him, hearing Him, taking the gift; and such words suggest the use of feet, eyes, ears and hands.

On several occasions, before He worked the miracle, the Lord commanded those who were to be cured to do something for themselves.
Blind Bartimaeus was called to His side. "Rise He calleth thee" only one step and how eagerly he took it.
Casting away the garment that impeded him, Mark 10: v 49.
The man with the withered hand was told to "stand forth" the next command was not so easy. He was told to do the very thing which had been impossible "Stretch out your hand" and as he obeyed the healing came, Mark 3: v 5.

The man who had been born blind was told, after the Lord had anointed his eyes, "Go wash in the pool Siloam" John 9: v 6. It seemed a useless command but having obeyed he was cured.
The blessing still comes by way of obedience.

He worked in very different ways. He had no set formula, no regular programme; sometimes a word did the work, sometimes a touch, sometimes the physician touched the patient, at other times the patient touched the physician or His garment.
Sometimes He looked up to heaven, on one occasion He made a man look up.
Some sufferers were healed in a crowd, some were called apart.
Some were several days journey away, or a few streets distant.
Yet He healed them all.

Acts 10: v 38 "How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and Healing All who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him."
Matthew 4: v 23 "And Jesus went about all Gallilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the Kingdom, and healing All kinds of sickness and All kinds of disease among the people."

Exodus 15: v 26 "I am the Lord that healeth thee."
Hebrews 13: v 8 "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever."

God's ultimate desire for all

3 John 3: v 2 "Beloved I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers."
James 1: v 17 "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights."

According to God's word every good and perfect gift comes from above, sickness, pain, desease are not perfect and good, they are not part of God's plan for your life.

Keep your eyes focus on God's word
Believe that God wants you to walk in freedom and health.
John 10: v 10 "The thief (satan) does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.
I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."
Healing is one of God's redemptive benefits.
Believe that God wants you to be healed.
Let today be the day, to let the healing water flow and the wind of the Spirit move you into the fullness of "My purpose for you."
Come and be healed, refreshed and renewed.
God will do the work He has promised you.
