I’d been really ill and was quite traumatised by the level of pain I was in. The first time that I worshipped after this point I was inspired and challenged to write this song. Did I believe Jesus could heal me? Would He heal me? Could He do anything for me?
As christians we are taught to have a high view of the word of God, the bible. The bible says that God can and does heal today ‘I am the Lord who heals you’ Exodus 15 end of verse 26
‘Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people. News about him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed, and he healed them.’ Matthew 4 verses 23 & 24.
After chatting with a friend of mine Debs who is well versed in the bible and teaches and preaches a lot. I discovered that Jesus’ primary mission was to bring healing to His people. As I further researched healing in the bible I discovered that God cares for and relates to our suffering and that He heals today as He did when Jesus walked the earth and even before that in Old Testament, people were being healed, raised from the dead and set free from all kinds of sicknesses.
So how am I doing? I have received a lot of healing for which I am grateful. I understand my authority in Christ more and therefore I am in a better position to resist the works of the enemy. I feel the Lord has broken the back of the worst of the illness and I continue on my healing journey with my Saviour.
