Will God heal me?
Question: “Is it still God’s will to heal all who ask to be healed as in times past?”
A man with leprosy came to Jesus and begged Him, “If you are willing, you can make me clean.” Jesus was filled with compassion. He reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” (Mark 1:40-
He knew that Jesus could heal him, but he asked the same question that most of us ask today, “Will He heal me?”
The greatest hindrance for many seeking healing is the uncertainty, in their mind, if it is God’s will for them to be healed. While most know that God heals a few, they do not have a clear understanding of what the Word says, so they doubt, and doubt destroys their faith. It is very difficult to have faith when the will of God is unknown. The Bible clearly teaches that healing is provided for all, but it also teaches that faith is required. Not faith that God can, but faith that God will heal.
In Psalm 103.3, King David tells us, Who forgives all your iniquities; who heals all your diseases. God heals all of our diseases.
For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you (Psalm 86:5). Did it say to a few? No, it says to all.
that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man (Hebrews 2:9). Jesus tasted death not just for some, but for everyone who is willing to receive both salvation and healing.
God has planned good for us and He does not change His mind. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever (Hebrews 13:8). The gospels clearly teach that salvation and healing are for everyone who comes to Him. We can pray for anyone's healing because we know healing is God’s will. His Word clearly defined His will for our healing and what we need to do to receive.
He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions (Psalm 107:20).
On earth, Jesus was God in a body but without His Godly power. He operated just as man should operate, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Unbelief is so strong that even Jesus was limited by the great unbelief He encountered in His hometown. And he could do no mighty work there, except that he laid his hands on a few sick people and healed them (Mark 6:5).
It doesn’t say that He would not, it says He could not, because their great unbelief limited Him.
What are we told to do with the Word? Let them not depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh (Proverbs 4:21-
Faith is the assurance that God will keep His promises.
Lets take a quick look at a few additional verses to see if Jesus healed some or all.
all those who had any who were sick with various diseases brought them to him, and he laid his hands on everyone of them and healed them (Luke 4:40). Doing the
Father’s will, Jesus healed everyone, all.
This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah: “He took our illnesses and bore our diseases” (Matt. 8:17). The word “our” also means “all”.
and healed them all (Luke 6:1).
As many that touched it [His garment] were made well (Matt. 14:36).
And he healed them all (Matt. 12:15)
healing every [all] disease and sickness among the people (Matt. 4:23).
Jesus went through all the towns and villages … healing every disease and sickness (Matthew 9:35).
He has already paid the price and taken all of our illnesses and diseases. It is now our responsibility, by faith, to receive the healing that He has paid for.
And let us not forget that Jesus’ compassion to heal yesterday is the same today. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Jesus called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out impure spirits and to heal every disease and sickness (Matthew 10:1).
When Satan was tempting Jesus, His response was “It is written.” We have a choice. We can believe what man says or we can believe in the Word of God and be healed. God says, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health (3 John 2). By His Stripes I am healed (Isaiah 53:5). He took our infirmities and carried your sicknesses (Matthew 8:17).
Satan gives us the thought, “I know God can heal me, but I am not sure He will heal me.” Over and over, we keep saying, I am not sure He will heal me, I am not sure He will heal me, until it completely fills our heart with doubt, the doubt kills our faith, and the lack of faith blocks our receiving. Round #1, Satan wins. Or we can accept that there was no sickness in the Garden of Eden before the fall of Adam and Eve, that there is no sickness in heaven, and that His Word tells us that He wants health for His children. Rather than repeating and filling your heart with “but will He heal me,” start repeating to yourself, “God wants me healed,” “God wants me healed” until it has pushed out all the doubt in your heart. Round #1, God and you win.
Surrender your sins and unforgiveness to Jesus and remember that it is God’s desire to heal those who ask. Don’t ask “Will God heal me”, but believe His Word that says “He will heal”. Receive God’s Word in faith and keep believing, and you will be healed. Sometimes instantly, sometimes over time, but when we do our part, God’s Word never fails.
