READ: Psalm 6

“Does God still heal?” It’s a question I have been asked more times than I can count. It’s usually being asked by someone that is sick or that has a loved one that is sick. My answer is always “Yes!” I say this with confidence because firstly, it says that God heals over and over again in the bible and secondly because I have seen people healed. I’m talking legitimate miracles! My dad was one of those miracles. He had been diagnosed with congestive heart failure. He was fragile and every breath was a struggle. One day we were in a church service and my grandpa was in town visiting us. My grandpa said he felt like he was supposed to pray for my dad so that’s exactly what he did. My dad said he didn’t feel an immediate change but the next day he woke up and he no longer was struggling to breathe. It was awesome to have my dad back to being his old self! On the other side of that, though, I have prayed for people that haven’t been healed. I get asked the question “why?’ a lot. The truth is I don’t know the answer. I think there are some things we won’t know on this side of eternity. But I won’t let it change what I believe. What I believe is that God still heals without a doubt! Maybe you’re struggling with sickness. Maybe you are healthy physically but you aren’t healthy emotionally.

Don’t stop believing that God heals and that in a moment, he can heal and restore your body.

Prayer: God, I believe you still heal and restore because your word says that you do. My faith isn’t in these symptoms; my faith is in you. Thank you that by Jesus’ stripes I am healed physically and emotionally.
