One Thing God Says You Need to Be Healed

by | Oct 4, 2016 | Woman

So often, our Lord tells people if they believe, a certain thing will happen. But then why do people get upset when they are told they need to believe?

The Old Testament prophet Elisha told Naaman to go and dip seven times in the Jordan River so that he would be healed of leprosy. At first Naaman was furious, but then he did as he was told, and he came up healed of an incurable disease after he obeyed and did what he was told to do (2 Kings 5:1-14). 

What is the main requirement for us to be healed? We are told we are to believe. And this request makes many Christians mad. Like Naaman, this is a pride issue. How dare anyone suggest that we might not believe as we ought to? Well, this is the main issue that prevents healing from coming forth—a lack of faith to believe for it.

Let’s get this point straight: Just because we believe Jesus is our Savior doesn’t automatically mean we believe Him for healing. Just like we need to be fully convinced that we need a Savior who can forgive us of our sins, we also need to be completely convinced that Jesus is our healer and He is able and willing to heal us too.

Over and over again as we read God’s Word we see the same theme of faith rise up.

Romans 10:9-10 says, “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

Mark 16:17-18 tells us, “These signs will accompany those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

Matthew 21:22 declares, “And whatever you ask in prayer, if you believe, you will receive.”

In Luke 8:48, Jesus says to the woman with the issue of blood, “Daughter, be of good cheer. Your faith has made you well. Go in peace.” 

In Luke 17:19, Jesus says to the one of the ten lepers that came back to thank Him for his healing, “Rise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”

Again and again, we read it is our faith, our belief, that brings forth the miraculous. So let us not be offended when the Spirit of the Lord tells us that we need to have faith, or believe again.
