The Lord Your Healer

David CerulloBy David Cerullo9 Minutes

With all my heart, I believe it’s God’s will for you and your loved ones to be healed today. If you need a healing in your body, your emotions, your finances, your family, or some other area of your life, God’s Word is clear…

Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in ALL things and be in health, just as your soul prospers (3 John 1:2).

Friend, the Lord never intended for His children to get sick or even to die. He made us perfect—without sin, sickness, or a body that would have to experience death and decay.

But everything changed when Adam and Eve sinned. From that day until now, we all suffer the effects of their disobedience.

Yet the good news is that God sent His Son Jesus into this world to reverse the curse of sin and death. On the Cross He bore the penalty for your sins and mine—and He also purchased our healing:

He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5).

Whether you need physical healing, emotional peace, or deliverance from some kind of sin or addiction, God describes Himself as Jehovah Rapha—the Lord our Healer (Exodus 15:26).

Do You Really Know Your Father?

Throughout the Bible, God reveals Himself as a loving, merciful, caring Heavenly Father. Jesus said, “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!” (Matthew 7:11)

God doesn’t take any pleasure from His children being sick, emotionally distraught, or in poverty. As our loving Heavenly Father, He’s glorified when we prosper and are in health. Just as He wants us to be spiritually healthy in our relationship with Him, He also wants to touch every area of our lives—our “whole spirit, soul, and body” (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24).

You can know for sure today that your Father cares deeply about you. He sees the anxious times your family faces. He knows the difficult things you’re going through. He feels your pain, heartache, and suffering.

Amid all the attacks of the enemy and challenging circumstances of life, God says, “Trust Me, My child. The battle is not yours, it’s Mine!” (2 Chronicles 20:15). Yes, the battles may be fierce at times, but in Christ we can find healing, peace, and victory: “In ALL these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us” (Romans 8:37).

I’ve Seen God’s Healing Power

I have experienced God’s healing touch in our own lives and family. When my son Ben was an infant, he once came down with a serious fever—rising all the way to 104°F (40°C). The pediatrician told us to bathe him in cold water, but his fever went right back up when we took him out of the water.

The doctor said the only other thing we could do was rush Ben to the emergency room. But as I prepared to go, I said, “Wait just a minute. I think I need to call on God one more time.”

I laid my hands on Ben’s forehead, anointed him with oil, and cried out to the Lord, “I’m standing on Your Word, Father, and I’m asking you to heal my son.”

While I was still praying, Ben’s temperature suddenly plunged. One moment he was burning with fever, and the next he was perfectly normal!

I knew I had witnessed something truly miraculous, quite a testimony of God’s desire to heal His children. Just as I was desperate to have my son experience relief from his sickness, I saw how much our Heavenly Father yearns for His children to be healed and blessed. And since then I’ve personally witnessed the mighty healing hand of God at work in countless situations in my own life and in the lives of our Inspiration Partners around the world.

A Relationship, Not a Formula

Healing is one of the by-products the Lord wants to give us as part of our Covenant Relationship with Him. He tells us to come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16).

Healing must never be reduced to a set of formulas or methods. Jesus healed people in a wide variety of ways in the Gospels, showing that the key is not any certain procedure, but rather coming to Him in faith as our Healer.

We can’t prescribe how or when the Lord is to heal us. We simply must have a heart that is open to His promise to make us whole, regardless of how He does it.

Sometimes healing is immediate and miraculous. Sometimes it is gradual and comes over time. And sometimes we don’t see the healing take place this side of Heaven.

But I believe you can position yourself to receive God’s healing power. First, ask the Holy Spirit to examine your heart and reveal any unconfessed sin, unbelief, fear, or unforgiveness that may be blocking His supernatural touch.

Then declare God’s Word over your life and circumstances. Speak to your “mountain” in Jesus’ name, and command it to obey the Word (Matthew 17:20).

Engage the enemy in spiritual warfare, persistently and fervently. When you need healing in some area of your life, get spiritually “violent,” as Jesus instructed us: “From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force” (Matthew 11:12-13).
