Emotional and Physical Healing


Believe that God has the power to heal, even if He does not do so right away.

There is emotional healing power in our Savior. He alone has the power to heal shattered lives and broken hearts. Jesus alone can come against demonic forces we may have allowed into our lives through sin or a lack of repentance. Only Jesus can tear down the strongholds that lead to our being harassed by the enemy. Jesus alone can set the captives free.

Another type of healing is physical healing. Examples of physical healing abound in the New Testament. In Matthew 9 alone, He heals people who are deaf, paralyzed, mute, bleeding, and even dead.

What God did 2,000 years ago, He can still do today. His nature is unchanging. But God does not always heal right away. He did not immediately heal Epaphroditus (see Philippians 2:25-30) or Trophimus (see 2 Timothy 4:20.) We may not understand how Paul emerged from the shipwreck at Malta and used his gift to heal Publius' father on the spot (see Acts 28) but was not delivered from the thorn in his own flesh mentioned in 2 Corinthians 12:5-10.

God is sovereign over all of the gifts and will do what is best for our good and for His glory. We cannot begin to know His thoughts and how He will use everything for His divine purposes. God deals with no two people alike. For some, healing is instantaneous; for others, He will use doctors and extended periods of treatment and prayer. For a few, their complete healing will be in glory.

Prayer: God, I don't always understand Your ways, but I trust You today for emotional and physical healing as You see fit for my good and Your glory. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

"He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners" (Isaiah 61:1).
