This is how you get healing from God based upon what He has promised in the Word.
God is good and in His Word He promised to heal those who come and ask for it. But how does one get the healing from the Lord? What are the conditions or the things to do to get it? Let’s find out.
Reason why God heals:
There is only one reason why it is possible. Some people think they can deserve anything from God. They try to live good lives and that’s great, but human deeds cannot make us righteous in His eyes. No sacrifice, no offering can become the reason why God heals.
So, what is it? The only reason why a human can get a divine healing is this: the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross.
“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5
There is nothing you can DO to deserve the healing from the Lord. The price is too high for people. Only God could pay it sacrificing the life of His only Son. Jesus died on the cross so our sins (the initial cause of sin) would be forgiven!
Once we get forgiveness, we get adopted by God and as His children have right for all the heavenly blessings in Christ Jesus.
What do we do to get healing from God?
Is there your part in it? Well, there is. There are three things you can and should do, when seeking the healing from the Lord:
This Scripture is very powerful:
“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent…” (Acts of the Apostles 17:30)
God does not ask or offer people to repent. He commands us to do that. We live in the era of repentance and that’s the best news you have ever heard!
All you need to be forgiven and cleansed from your sins is repentance. What does it mean? It means the complete change of mind and ways! It literally describes someone, who was headed in one direction, but then changed their mind and turned around to head in the opposite direction.
You come to the Lord, admit your sins, confess them and ask Him to help you change. His power of the Holy Spirit enables people not only to be sorry over their sins, but to leave them behind and have a renewed and holy life. If you have been committing any sin in the past, true repentance gives you power to stop doing it and change.
“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6)
Faith has to have a firm foundation. Some people manage to fake it. They confess and claim they believe, but in reality they are just fooling themselves. First of all, you cannot believe just in healing.
You have to believe in God and through your faith have personal relationship with Him. When you learn who He is, you become more and more able to trust Him your life and health. There is one simple truth about the Lord: He is kinder than people, He is gooder! Once you know Him personally, you become able to believe in healing from Him.
“Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord…” (James 5:14)
First you have personal relations with the Lord; secondly you build up your faith in Him and thirdly you call your local church leaders to lay hands and pray over you to get healed.
Now, some people are running from church to church chasing “anointed” ministers. That’s not in the Bible!
You have to be rooted in your personal relations with the Lord. He is the Healer, not people. Some preachers create real shows of healing, but no one really gets healed. It’s not about minister’s anointing. If you do not have your personal faith, nothing happens. So, stay rooted in your church and take up some ministry there. Then if you need to, call your leaders to pray over you and be blessed!
These three things will help you to learn how to get healing from God and be well.
