Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (Psalm 103:2-5)
Have you ever asked God to heal you from something? Or, have you seen a friend or family member suffering from an illness and asked God to miraculously heal them? There are many instances in Scripture where the Lord miraculously healed people. However, some people don’t think God heals people like that anymore.
Let me be clear. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that God doesn’t still heal people, because He does! Healing is part of His character. He may choose to heal miraculously, or He may choose to heal through medicine. He may choose to give a doctor wisdom and insight to diagnose a situation that could be cured. Regardless of the method, God is the one who does the healing.
Another thing to remember about God’s healing work is that He does so in His way and in His time. Often, we believe the lie that our time table is the best time table, and that we know when something should happen better than anyone. Part of being a child of God is trusting the Father’s timing. While we can only see the present and the past, He can see all of time, including the future. Therefore, He knows the best time to heal someone.
If you are praying for healing right now, whether for yourself or for someone else; trust that God is most definitely capable of healing them. He will do so in His own way and in His own timing, whether it is on earth or in heaven.
