Trust God for Your Healing

Oct. 2, 2023 | By Creflo Dollar

In today’s society, achieving good health has become the latest trend. Staying healthy is something we all strive for, and healing for the body and mind is everyone’s goal. No one wants to be sick; however, some people constantly struggle with illness or medical issues. Jesus went to the cross to remove the curse of sickness and disease; therefore, the root cause of it lingering and afflicting us may lie in our belief system.

What was true under the law (before Jesus came) isn’t necessarily true now (after He came). This is particularly true about healing. Sickness was a result of the sin that was born in the garden of Eden. God no longer punishes us with sickness because of our sins; healing is His will for us. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases(Psalm 103:3, NLT).

The world’s mindset concerning healing is primarily focused on the physical level. Doctors are in great demand, and they do their best. However, some things not even they can cure. There’s only one person who can—Jesus Christ, the Great Physician. “And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people” (Matthew 4:23).

It’s no accident that healing and God’s Word are mentioned together. Everything in the natural begins in the supernatural, including good health. Most people don’t see the connection and suffer, not understanding this link. Unbelief regarding the origin of healing keeps us from receiving the perfect health Jesus made available. “Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief” (Matthew 13:58, NKJV).

Healing ultimately comes from heaven; when we’re sick, God works through health-care professionals to restore us to wholeness. There’s nothing wrong with seeing a doctor, but cutting Jesus from the process puts us right back under the law where our healing is concerned. Healing is a blessing; under the law, the Israelites had to work hard to be blessed, but under grace, we receive it as a gift we don’t have to earn. “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows” (James 1:17, NIV).

The popular philosophy concerning healing encourages us to trust in ourselves for our own health. This isn’t to say that we shouldn’t eat right, get plenty of exercise, and lead a healthy lifestyle, but rather that we need to trust in God, who ultimately heals us when the doctors don’t know what else to do. Trusting in anything or anyone else but Him is simply self-effort, which gets us nowhere. Relying on God when we get a bad diagnosis allows Him to get involved and give us the wisdom to know what to do to restore our good health. “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths (Proverbs 3:5, 6).

Believing God’s Word, no matter how bad the X-rays look, gives us peace. Our perfect health is on His mind; it should be on ours as well. Agreeing with what He says positions us to receive from Him. God will never let us down; we’re in good hands when we entrust our healing to Him.
