KEY SCRIPTURE: James 5:14 “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”:
Divine healing is a restoration to health by the power of God. There are various ways of administering healing to the sick. There are physical or natural ways of healing the sick. Our concern in this study is to look at how to receive healing from the Lord.
Sickness remains one of the major enemies and a molester of humans. The medical profession is doing its best yet there are countless cases that medicine has no answer to. Knowing how to receive healing is a big plus to having a fulfilled life. Many people wish they could be alleviated from the power of diseases. To a lot of people it is not possible. Some even say it is the will of God to afflict people with sicknesses and for that matter some of God’s children as well. Are these views true? What is the biblical answers to some of these questions? This series of studies will throw some light on such questions and help you live free of the power of sicknesses.
Stop and ask the Holy Spirit to open your eyes so you may behold wondrous truths out of the word of God (Psalm 119:18).
I would first want to explain the difference between divine healing and divine health.
Diving healing, as I explained earlier is restoration to health through the power of God. Divine health is a preservation of your health by the power of God. In divine healing from God (I have been using the phrase receiving healing instead of God healing your sicknesses. This is for a very important reason. I would explain as our study proceeds), one who has been suffering from some sickness is made whole by the power of God. In divine health you do not get sick in the first place. Divine health is God’s ultimate desire for His children. I pray we humbly go through these series of studies so we would be able to walk in divine health. 1st Corinthians 6:20 says “For you are bought with a price. Therefore glorify God in your bodies and in your spirit” No disease allows men to glorify God in their bodies.
Divine health is God’s will for you. 3rd John 1:2 “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper, and be in health even as thy soul prospereth.
God wants you well.
It is the will of God that I may be in health. It glorifies Him. I would continue to walk in perfect health even as I walk in the word of God to glorify Him.
Exodus 15:26 ” And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee”.
Psalms 103:2-3 ” Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;”
