A collection of bible verses about healing for various reasons which affects us physically or spiritually. A number of reasons ranges from seeking spiritual healing, seeking physical healing, emotional healing when we lose a loved one. As sons of God, we also seek God to heal our soul when facing spiritual battle from the enemy.
According to scriptures, illnesses can come disguised in many forms. They can be of the body, or of the mind, or spirit. Sometimes, no matter how much we try to overcome what is deemed as our disease, nothing seems to make us any better. So, in those moments, please remember the power in the messages of healing bible verses.
Let these verses remind you that God hears your every prayer, and that in your time of need, He is as near to you as ever. So, each day I encourage you to take a minute and know that God is within you, healing you, if only you would allow him to do so. Just let go and let God handle it.
Reasons why some People do not receive healing:
1) They lack insufficient knowledge of, nor faith in the healing power of the word of God.
2) Lack of unity in prayer where some people believe in God healing them while others simple don’t believe.
3) Unbelief among people in a community or nation. When a community or a nation do not believe in God nor follow God’s commandments, there will be fewer healing miracles for those who live there. As recorded in Mark 6:4-6 “Jesus said to them, A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home. He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and healing them. He was amazed at their lack of faith.”
4) Misconceptions or misguided belief that sickness is a way God uses to punish man for his evil acts or sins. Some even believe that it is not God’s will to heal us all or certain people have been chosen to be healed!
5) A lot of people do abuse their God given body such as smoking, drinking, taking drugs, and most common is eat unhealthy food, etc.
6) An unrepentant heart and unforgiveness in your heart.
A good example which shows that God’s will is to heal us is the life of Christ while on earth. Jesus spent most of his short time on Earth healing the sick and raising the dead!
Should Christians seek medical help, or would this compromise our faith in healing?
Of course every Christians should seek medical help or advise when we suffer from chronic illness or disease. Who created medicine? Man did not create doctors or medicines, all was made possible through God! And out of God’s abundant love and mercy, He blessed many people with vast wisdom and knowledge to create and invent medicines and medical procedures. The problem is that many people do not want to give credit to God for anything. Yet when they get sick or terminally ill, many refuse to seek God first because of their suffering but rather blame him for all of their afflictions.
But while we are receiving medical attention, it can only help expedite the entire healing process – if we immerse ourselves in prayer for rapid healing. This faith in spiritual healing will perhaps make the medication work even better and faster for you! It is like the icing on the cake of healing, if you will!
