Healing: Answers to Your Questions

by Inspiration Ministries

Does God really want to heal me?

One day a leper asked Jesus a similar question when he begged to be cleansed (Mark 1:40-42), and just as Jesus was willing to heal this leper, He is willing to heal you with the same compassion.

There are many scriptural verses that describe Jesus’ willingness and ability to heal all kinds of diseases. You can learn more by reading Matthew 4:23-24, Matthew 12:15, Luke 4:40, and 3 John 1:2.

Where does sickness come from?

Disease was not a part of God’s original creation since everything He created was “very good” (Genesis 1:31). The Bible makes it clear that God doesn’t want His people to be sick, but disease is part of the curse of sin on those “who were oppressed of the devil” (Acts 10:38).

While some disease is simply a by-product of living in a fallen world, Jesus at times attributed sickness to a demonic spirit or “spirit of infirmity” (Luke 13:10-17).

Is someone’s sickness always the result of their personal sin?

No. Jesus addressed this issue in John 9:1-7 when His disciples asked Him why a man was born blind: “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him.”

However, as written in James 5:15-16, it’s also true that a person’s sin may at times play a role in causing them to be sick. In these cases, the healing power of prayer plays an important role: The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And IF he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed.

Is my physical health related to my spiritual and emotional health?

Yes. The Bible describes humankind as having three components — spirit, soul, and body. These are all interrelated. You can learn more by reading 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24, Romans 12:1-2, 3 John 1:2, and Mark 2:8-12.

What factors block God’s healing power in my life?

The Bible lists a variety of factors that will hinder the release of God’s healing power. These include unbelief, unforgiveness, pride, disobedience, poor choices, fear, anxiety, and stress.
