I AM the LORD who Heals

October 10, 2012

James 5:15-16 AMP … And the prayer [that is] of faith will save him who is sick, and the Lord will restore him; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].

Psalm 46:1 … God is our refuge and strength, a very ever-present help in trouble!

This morning the Lord really encouraged me! I received a praise report from my Prayer Mail group. A testimony from someone who’s son was in the ER about a month ago with kidney failure – today his kidneys are functioning normal. Praise the LORD! It is a testimony not only that the Lord heals today but also that He is a VERY ever-present help! We need only to come to Him for ourselves or for the sick person who needs healing.

When we confess we are forgiven, we are purified from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9) making our prayers for healing powerful and dynamic in working{present}.

I took an in depth look at the above verses. The Lord encouraged me even more. May you also be encouraged by this testimony and the word study included below.

Our Lord Jesus Christ is still the Lord who heals and IS a VERY ever-present help!

Word StudyFrom NetBible Ja 5:15

  • save[4982] = to keep safe or rescue
    * to save a suffering one (from perishing), i.e. one suffering from disease, to make well, heal, restore to health
  • restore[1453] = to arouse from the sleep of death to life
    *to cause to rise up as from a bed{a sick bed}

From NetBible Ja 5:16

  • healed[2390] = to cure, make whole

Exodus 15:26 … If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.

Isaiah 53:4-5 … Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy]. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.

Jesus Christ our Lord, our healer, heals both physical and mental pain! By His stripes we are healed and made whole. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever! -Heb 13:5
