Does God "Really" Heal People Today?

I have seen how God heals today. When I was a child, I loved the stories where Jesus would heal someone. Blind eyes were opened, a paralyzed man was able to walk, and lepers were healed as just a few examples.

What was it like to be healed or to watch someone else be healed? While healing is wonderful, it is only temporary for life in this world. The greater work of God took place when people placed their faith in Jesus or had their faith strengthened when they saw the miracle of faith.

Jesus Healed the Woman’s Daughter

A Gentile woman came to Jesus because her daughter was demon possessed. The woman was a person of faith who was persistent in her request and worshiped the Lord. She pleaded again with the Lord and Jesus healed her daughter.

Matthew 15:28 “Dear woman,” Jesus said to her, “your faith is great. Your request is granted.” And her daughter was instantly healed. [1]  Even the demonic realm is not beyond the control of our Lord Jesus. Our Lord is the King of King and the Lord of Lords.

God Still Heals Today

We were doing a crusade in Honduras and thousands of people came to hear about Jesus. Just before the message of salvation, it began to pour rain. People began to leave as they ran for cover. Our speaker called the people in the stadium to pray after him and led them to ask the Lord to stop the rain.

After the prayer, a warm wind swept through the stadium and the rain stopped as if a movie director said, “turn off the rain now.” Then our speaker asked if the people wanted to follow a God who could do this miracle. Many people confessed their faith, and many came forward for healing.

I prayed for many people that evening and asked the Lord to bring healing to their bodies. One young lady I prayed for me came up to me the next day when we were eating at a café. She told me the Lord healed her. She was overjoyed and praising God for what He had done. Wow! That is still amazing to think about as I write this. Yes, God heals today. I have had other experiences as well where God brought healing not only physically, but also emotionally.

Do You Need Healing?

We read in Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”[2] The God who healed back in Bible days is the same God who heals today. Do you need healing today? Call on the Lord in prayer. Have other people pray over you. Have faith God will answer your prayers in His timing and His way. Sometimes He gives us the faith to walk through the situation we are in as we don’t always understand God’s plan. Have faith the Lord knows best and loves you more than you can ever imagine.
