Throughout the Bible, God encourages us to call upon Him for healing. He says in Exodus 15:26b,
“I am the LORD who heals you,”
we call Him “Jehovah Rapha” because He is the God of healing.
"for I am the LORD that healeth thee."
Some think that miracles no longer occur, citing 1 Corinthians 13:8. However, this passage refers to the return of Jesus Christ. When He comes again, we will no longer need prophecies, tongues and miracles because we will be in His presence.

Until then, the anointing, power and gifts of the Holy Spirit are readily available to help us in every situation!
Psalm 103:2-3 says, “Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases.”
The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John give numerous accounts of
how Jesus healed people of serious infirmities and illnesses, including blindness, deafness, leprosy, seizures, and paralysis. He even raised dead people to life! Notice the word “all” in Matthew 8:16b: “He drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick.” .
This is how God showed His love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that
we might live through Him.”
At the Last Supper – knowing He would die within hours – Jesus wanted to impart some final words and encouragement to His friends. He said: “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in Me
will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in My name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father” (John 14:12-13). Jesus then repeated this bold pledge for emphasis: “You may ask Me for anything in My name, and I will do it” (vs. 14).
One disciple who personally heard Jesus say this was John, who later wrote: “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if
we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have what we asked of Him” (1 John 5:14-15).
By His suffering and crucifixion, Jesus once and for all won
our salvation, forgiveness, healing and eternal life.
1 Peter 2:24 says, “He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that
we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by His wounds you have been healed.” (The King James Version says, “By whose stripes ye were healed.”) In this, Jesus fulfilled the prophetic words of Isaiah 53:4-5: “Surely He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows ... . But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed.”
Through His resurrection, we have new life. Romans 8:11 says,
“And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit, who lives in you.”
James 5:14-16 gives very specific instructions about healing: “Is any one of you sick? (then) He should
call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up.
Sometimes outward physical healing may not occur if
the Lord has something else to teach us or accomplish within us.
we must be careful not to jump to conclusions about why someone is suffering. Job’s friends offered cold comfort with their judgmental observations during his time of testing. And the disciples once asked, “‘Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?’
‘Neither this man nor his parents sinned,’ said Jesus, ‘but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life’” (John 9:2b-3).
Our task is simply to ask God in faith for healing, to believe that He is at work, and to trust Him for the outcome. If fear wells up, remember
1 John 4:18b: “Perfect love drives out fear” – and God loves us perfectly.
In Matthew 7:7, Jesus said, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” In the original Greek, these verbs mean,
“Ask and keep on asking; seek and keep on seeking; knock and keep on knocking.”

Jesus continued, “For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened” (vs. 8). He illustrated this principle in Luke 11:5-8 with the parable of a man who kept knocking on his neighbor’s door during the night until he received the bread he urgently needed.
One of the biggest keys to receiving a miracle is found in Mark 11:22-24. The disciples were amazed to see that a fig tree Jesus cursed had completely withered overnight. Jesus simply said, “Have faith in God.” God is the source of everything – our life, our hope, our provision, our healing, and our future! Jesus explained, “I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain,
‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
James 1:6-7 cautions: “But when he asks, he must
believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord.”
In describing the armor of God, Paul wrote: “Take up the shield of faith, with which you can
extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one” (Ephesians 6:16b).
If people aren’t quickly healed, they may think their faith is insufficient. But even our faith is a gift of God! Ephesians 2:8-9 reminds us, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.”
Corrie Ten Boom...often said that she only had a little bit of faith, but it was in a great big God.
So no matter how weak, frail or insignificant you may feel at times, remember that Almighty God is infinitely powerful, forever compassionate, and always with us!
“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing and perfect will.” Rather than praying “If it be Thy will,”
first ask God what His will is, just as Jesus did (see John 5:17, 19-20). Spend time in God’s Word, asking Him to show you His promises for your life. Then base your prayers upon His Word to you.
Many people ask God for a miracle but omit a key requirement –
the spoken word. God has given us authority over disease, demons, sickness, storms, and finances.
We are told in 2 Chronicles 16:9a, “For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.” God desires to strengthen and support you!
If possible, ask other believers to agree with you for your miracle. In an act of faith, lay your hands on the part of your body that needs healing.
As you pray, come against the enemy and command him to leave you. Because of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, we can enter God’s presence and
boldly make our requests. Hebrews 4:16 says, “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
Pray straight from your heart, saying something like this:
“Dear Lord Jesus, I ask You, the Creator of the Universe and the Great Physician, to hear my prayer for personal healing. I believe that You want me to regain my health and strength, and I pray that You would touch me now with Your grace and power. Please forgive me of any sin and remove all obstacles from my life which could prevent my healing. If I am angry or bitter against anyone, bring their names to my mind now so I can forgive them completely. In Your mighty name, I take authority over this sickness and rebuke it. I speak to this illness and command it to leave forever in the name of Jesus Christ. Lord, I also recommit my life to Your service, and I will glorify You as part of my testimony. Thank You for hearing my prayer. Amen.”
As you speak forth God’s promise to you with an anointing of faith, believe in your heart that it has already happened. Then try exercising your faith by doing something you have not been able to do before!
We simply approach God with our petitions and trust Him for the answers in accordance with His perfect will for our lives. Remember that God’s healing may include medicine and professional medical help.
Romans 8:28b promises, “In all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” No matter what we face, God is with us! “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us” (vs. 35, 37).
