Can I Be Healed? from CBN.com
If you are suffering from a disease, an injury, or a chronic medical condition, you may wonder if you can ever be healed. The Bible has good news for you!
While doctors and medicine are a gift of God – and He certainly uses them to bring healing – His power is infinitely greater than any human wisdom or prescription. In fact, He “is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20b).
Throughout the Bible, God encourages us to call upon Him for healing. He says in Exodus 15:26b, “I am the LORD who heals you,” and we call Him “Jehovah Rapha” because He is the God of healing. Psalm 103:2-3 says, “Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases.”
Some think that miracles no longer occur, citing 1 Corinthians 13:8. However, this passage refers to the return of Jesus Christ. When He comes again, we will no longer need prophecies, tongues and miracles because we will be in His presence.
Until then, the anointing, power and gifts of the Holy Spirit are readily available to help us in every situation!
Here at CBN, we have received thousands of reports from people in America and around the world who have been healed in answer to prayer.
Focus on Jesus
God’s Word reveals how deeply He loves His children and wants us to have health and wholeness. 1 John 4:8b-9 says: “God is love. This is how God showed His love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him.” Jesus said, “I came that they might have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10:10b, NASB). Throughout His life, Jesus demonstrated what abundant life means for His followers – including us today!
