In this Bible study, we will be looking at the topic of divine healing. This is a topic that is often discussed and debated, and there are many different opinions on it. Some people believe that divine healing is still happening today, while others believe that it stopped happening after the death of Jesus Christ. We will explore what the Bible has to say about divine healing, and see what God’s plan for healing is.
Bible Verses About Diving Healing
One of the first things we see in the Bible is that God is a healer. In Exodus 15:26, we see that God is “the Lord who heals you.” This is repeated in Psalm 103:13 and 107:20. We also see in Isaiah 53:48-49 that Jesus was sent to heal the brokenhearted. So we know that God is a healer, and that He has the power to heal.
However, we also see in the Bible that not everyone is healed. In John 11:11-14, we see that Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, but He did not heal him while he was alive. We also see in Acts 28:27 that Paul was not healed of his thorn in the flesh, even though he prayed three times for it. So we see that there are some people who are not healed, even though they may have prayed for it.
So what does this mean? Does it mean that God doesn’t heal anymore? Or does it mean that He only heals some people and not others?
The answer is found in James. In James 14:13-14 we see that God is “able to do all things.” This includes healing, but it also includes other things like providing for our needs and giving us wisdom. So if God is able to heal, then why doesn’t He heal everyone?
The answer is found in the next verse, James 14:15. Here we see that God doesn’t always heal because He has a higher purpose. Sometimes, He allows us to go through trials and hardships so that we can grow in our faith. And sometimes, He uses those trials to show His power and glory. So even though God is a healer, He doesn’t always heal because He has a higher purpose.
This doesn’t mean that we should stop praying for healing. We see in the Bible that many people were healed after they prayed for it. So if you are facing a trial or hardship, don’t give up hope. Pray and ask God for His healing power. And trust that He knows what is best for you, even if it doesn’t seem like it right now.
