The God Who Still Heals
What does healing mean? It means being able to function as you are with wholeness and wellness. In some cases, it means the complete removal of a physical affliction. In other cases it means you taste the grace of God in such wonderful ways that you are able to function with joy and gladness.
If ever a generation needed wholeness and healing, it is our generation. Broken hearts, fractured relationships and the inability to live at peace with our neighbors and ourselves has left us hurting, estranged and troubled.
Jesus Christ came to bring emotional, physical and spiritual healing. At the onset of His public ministry, Jesus made this clear. "He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted," He said. Jesus healed without considering how serious the situation was. He healed both emotional and physical sicknesses, which are often intertwined. He never considered race, position or social status when there was a need. The influential and wealthy were accorded no more attention than the destitute and poverty-stricken.
Jesus also made it clear that sickness was not the result of personal failure or sin, but part of the curse that came when Adam turned his back on God's plan and purpose for humankind.
Human beings are a composite of the emotional, physical and the spiritual, therefore the restoration that we need has to touch all three areas. God is still Jehovah Rapha, or the God who heals. He feels your pain and you can experience His healing touch personally.
News about him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed, and he healed them. MATTHEW 4:24
