GOD’S HEALING TOUCH

 

by Creflo Dollar | 



Good health is something many of us take for granted and never think about—until we get sick. When that happens, we’ve gotten in the habit of reaching for medication or seeing a doctor for relief. There’s nothing wrong with that, but believers must not forget the origins of true healing. A sound mind and a healthy body keep us operating at peak efficiency; these are blessings from God.


Wise doctors ask the Great Physician to work through them because they know that there are some things that even they can’t fix. Healing is more than just writing prescriptions and performing surgery. The world’s medical and psychological communities now admit to the powerful effect the mind has on healing. This is confirmed in God’s Word. “A calm and undisturbed mind and heart are the life and health of the body, but envy, jealousy, and wrath are like rottenness of the bones” (Proverbs 14:30, AMPC).

While we should use the keen, intelligent minds God gave us to believe in His healing power, some people use their minds to think themselves into illness. We’ve all heard of cases where a person entertains such negative, angry thoughts over a long period of time that they eventually develop ulcers, or even clinical depression or mental illness. Periodically we hear of someone losing their will to live and dying of a broken heart after losing a loved one. The mind and the heart are connected, and God heals both. “He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds” (Psalm 147:3).

During His earthly ministry, Jesus healed those who believed He could do so because of who He was. Their faith connected them to His amazing power. “And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed” (Matthew 8:2, 3). Whether God touches us or we reach out and touch Him, real healing takes place by faith. “Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any, came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped” (Luke 8:43, 44, NKJV).

Without a heartfelt belief in the divine power of healing, there are things that all the medicine in the world can’t fix. God doesn’t want to see us sick; when we agree with Him on this, a marvelous power is unleashed. “And He came down with them and stood on a level place with a crowd of His disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem, and from the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear Him and be healed of their diseases, as well as those who were tormented with unclean spirits. And they were healed. And the whole multitude sought to touch Him, for power went out from Him and healed them all” (Luke 6:17-19, NKJV). Although Jesus was God in human form, He was always willing to come down to the level of ordinary people to perform healing. It was true then, and it’s true now.

Everything we experience in the natural world originates in the spiritual world, and God’s Word brings healing on many different levels. He restores our physical, spiritual, and emotional balance like no one else can. When God touches our minds and spirits, we’re healed and made whole again, with nothing missing and nothing broken.
