He Is Present to Heal

Throughout the Gospels, Jesus healed people. As believers, we have to make up our minds. Are we part of that crowd who believe that God does not heal today? If that were true, then why does the Bible say He changes not (Malachi 3:6)? Why does it say He is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8)? Could it be that He didn't want people to be sick back then, but He doesn't care about us today? Wasn't Peter used to heal (Acts 9:34-35)?

Didn't Paul pray for the sick and see them made whole (Acts 19:11-12)? The Word of God clearly teaches that God performs miracles by the "hearing of faith" (Galatians 3:5). How could anyone believe that God has decided to withhold His power to heal? He said, "No good thing will I withhold from them that walk uprightly" (Psalm 84:11)-from those whose righteousness goes beyond the self-righteousness of the Pharisees.

If we believe that God does not heal today, then we are saying that God is changeable. Some even believe that Jesus performed miracles while He was on earth just to prove His deity. But according to Matthew 9:35- 36, Jesus healed out of compassion.

He is still healing men and women today because of the law of faith.
