God the Healer

June 7, 2013

Today, calling God a healer gets all kinds of reactions. Some will claim these miracles are done and gone. Others will believe you and talk about TV evangelists. I would argue there is something so much more basic to this statement. No matter what affliction one has, God one day will heal it.

God has given the modern medical community amazing tools and gifts where they are able to do incredible works of modern medicine. This includes brain surgeries, organ transplants, and modern medicines. The reality is these are gifts from above. Over time, we have been able to learn and treat the intricacies of human beings. Yet, modern medicine does not have the answer for everything.

When I was injured, the doctors could not figure out how I was still able to walk and talk. There was no medical reason for it. I feel there was an act of grace going on; an opportunity for God to display His glory and proclaim it to others. This act of mercy and grace gave me the time I needed to eventually be sent to brain surgeons and get the life-saving treatment I needed.

There are medical ailments where the medical community has no answer and no immediate miracle is forthcoming. Has God left the healing business in that case? The answer is an unequivocal NO! When the end of a believer’s life comes and they are summoned to come home to God, the ultimate healing happens. The decaying, damaged body will be set aside. A permanent healing will occur and rejoicing in the heavens will start.

As you can see, no matter your current health situation, God is still in the healing business.

Listen to Kari Jobe’s song “Healer.” This song was utterly powerful as I went through my recovery. It still can bring my wife and I to tears. May it bring you the hope and power it brought us.
