. Trust in the Healing and Life-giving Power of Jesus Christ


“ I am the Lord who heals you.”

Exodus 15:26 (NIV)


“ He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.”

Isaiah 40:29 (NIV)


In seeking to be beautiful, we must possess a renewed spirit that can be attained by trusting in the healing and life-giving power of Jesus Christ. Jesus is the great Healer[G3] . He gives healing not only to our physical illnesses but to our emotional, spiritual and mental ailments. Jesus alone gives an inner healing that truly beautifies one’s soul. To possess a beautiful soul, we must experience the inner healing of Christ.


Jesus strengthens and empowers the weary heart and spirit, Jesus alone renews the strength of a frail body and heart. We must put our faith in Christ’s power to restore our weary soul. Seek His fellowship daily and rest in His presence. Seek his face in the early morning and experience His abiding love.

When we use the term healing it does not refer only to Christ’s power to heal illness and restore someone to health, but it also refers to the way He renews our bodies and strength for each day. This is God’s promises in His word as it is written in Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)

"They who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall wait and not faint.”


There was a certain woman in Jesus times who had suffered terribly from severe bleeding for twelve years. She had already been treated by many doctors and had spent all her money. But she had not been healed instead she got worse. When she heard the healing power of Jesus, she put her faith in this power, and she experienced healing. Thus her once hopeless and miserable condition was reversed. When she received her healing, her life was renewed. Because she trusted in the healing power of Jesus, her once despicable life had become a beautiful life filled with hope. (Bible Text: Mark 25:24-34)


Carmen’s faith in Jesus’ healing power does not fail her. Whatever ailment she suffers from, she does not readily consult a doctor or take any medicine. She first seeks the Lord’s healing grace before consulting any physician. More than twenty years ago Carmen was advised by her doctor to find a kidney donor for her kidney was greatly damaged. Because of financial scarcity and problem, Carmen did not follow the doctor's advice but entrust completely her condition to God. Today, after more than twenty years, she is still very much alive and doing well in her work as a teacher. Carmen put her faith in God's healing power and never got disappointed.


There is one remarkable woman I have known since my teen years as one who emerged victorious over her bout with a life threatening disease. Sister Zeny as I fondly call her, now in her early eighties, was once diagnosed with breast cancer. She is about forty years of age at that time and was enjoying the task of managing a parlor business. This unfavorable diagnosis at first shattered her but she held on to her faith in the healing power of Christ, her Savior.


The succeeding years, she subjected herself to chemotherapy treatment which really made life very difficult for her. With the aid of Christ’s healing grace, she was able to hurdle the unpleasant side effects of chemotherapy which lasted about two years. After two years of chemotherapy treatment, she was declared cancer free. Her faith made her victorious over this life and death battle. As of the present, she is now in her eighties and still manages her parlor business and involved in the missions ministry of her church in Manila. Truly putting your faith in Christ’s healing power will lead you to victory. Victory is ours in Christ.


Our beloved Sister in Christ Vivian, succumbed to death after many years of painful struggling with bone cancer. Amidst the terrible pain of bearing such dreadful ailment, she is victorious for she remained faithful to the message of the cross. She held onto her faith in God’s healing grace. Was she not healed because she died with that ailment ? I believe she experienced healing through death. God provided healing in a different way which is adverse to what is common to men. It is only through death, that we will receive complete healing and redemption. We have to experience death to experience the gift of eternal life as promised by the Lord. For a true believer in Christ, death is the doorway to everlasting life. Sister Vivian is victorious over her bout with the big “C” since she remained faithful to her Lord amidst unbearable sufferings. It is the Lord who sustained her throughout all her painful struggle with cancer. Sister Vivian is victorious since her faith was not shattered by such a great adversity.


Trust in God’s healing grace and be renewed daily in strength. -Anonymous-

“Come and see the victories of the cross. Christ’s wounds are thy healings, His agonies thy repose, His conflicts, thy conquests, His groans, thy songs, His pains, thine ease, His shame, thy glory, His death, thy life, His sufferings, thy salvation.”

-Matthew Henry-

      Amen, we know we have what we ask if He hears our prayers! Healing cancer is as easy for God as healing a common cold. "By His stripes we are healed" (present tense), healing was part of the atonement, its the children's bread, available to all who believe!

      Hi,

      It's so good for us to personally witness and know those who Jesus has healed in addition to reading about these things in the scriptures. This reminds us that He is ever present and personal. Liked the examples given.
