When it comes too healing, too many believers hide away.  We dim the light over this particular blessing because we don’t want to be embarrassed or ridiculed.  

I, for the life of me, don’t understand why so many believers shy away from the topic of healing.  Divine healing is such a fabulous gift our Savior gives to us.  Yet few talk about it.  Rarely do you hear a sermon on it in today’s church.  It just is out there, don’t look, don’t touch. But today more than ever, we need to raise that dimmer switch and shine it bright to a hurting and dying world.

One of Jesus’ chief miracles He did on earth was healing people. The healings didn’t just end with Jesus, throughout the book of Acts, we see healings and miracles as people find relief and wholeness through the healing power of God.

Physical healing is still available to us today.  Jesus’ death and resurrection didn’t bring an end to healing.  It increased the healing power.

“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” -1 Peter 2:24 (NIV)

Honestly, I think the fear of someone not being healed when we pray for them is why so many believers are dimming the switch on healing. They don’t want to be embarrassed if they pray, and nothing happens.  

But isn’t that thinking kinda arrogant?  It puts the power of healing on us, not God.  We are the vessel God uses, but HE is the One Who heals. What do we have to lose when we offer to pray for someone suffering physically?  

The worst-case scenario is they aren’t healed.  But what if they are?  What if someone’s healing is delayed because you won’t pray for them?  What if their suffering is prolonged because of your fears?

I believe we serve a God Who heals. It’s time to Rise and Shine for healing.

Memory Verse: “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” (1 Peter 2:24, NIV)
