Healing Is God’s Plan For You!

Faith begins where the will of God is known. Therefore, for you to receive the healing God has for you, it’s critical to be fully convinced that it is God’s plan for you to be well. And the best way to build your faith to believe and receive is to saturate yourself with the truth of God’s Word.

In John 5:30, Jesus said, “I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me” (New King James Version). This verse tells us that everything Jesus did was the will of His Heavenly Father. And what did Jesus do? He healed people everywhere He went.

Healing Is God's Plan for You!

Matthew 15:30 says, “A vast crowd brought to him people who were lame, blind, crippled, those who couldn’t speak, and many others. They laid them before Jesus, and he healed them all.” Jesus didn’t heal some. He didn’t heal a few. He didn’t heal only one. He healed them ALL. He responded to their faith and made them completely whole.

If you’re still wondering, Is it God’s will to heal me? here’s your answer: Are you breathing? Are you still alive? Then, based on the Word of God, Healing Is God’s Plan for You!

Hindrances To Receiving God’s Plan of Healing

But here’s the thing: Although healing is God’s will for you, it’s conditional. Consider the following conditions and ask the Holy Spirit to show you how to walk fully in step with God’s plan of healing for you.

  1. We receive our healing by faith, therefore, we need to be walking in faith, living by faith, speaking faith, declaring in faith, praying in faith and believing to receive the healing we need with faith. Second Corinthians 5:7 reminds us that we walk by faith and not by sight – and we receive our healing the same way.

When Jesus healed the woman with the issue of blood, He said, “Your faith has made you well” (Matthew 9:22).

To the leper he said, “Your faith has made you well” (Luke 17:19, NKJV).

To the blind beggar Jesus said, “Your faith has made you well” (Luke 18:42).

And when people didn’t walk in faith, the word tells us, “Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief” (Matthew 13:58).

Faith is a condition by which we receive our healing.

  1. We freely forgive. One of the biggest hindrances to receiving our healing is an unforgiving spirit, because it interferes with our faith working on our behalf. In Mark 11:22-25, Jesus said, “Have faith in God [the faith of God]. I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours. But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too” (Mark 11:22-25).

Have you examined your heart lately? Are you holding a grudge? Are you withholding forgiveness from someone? Perhaps because they’ve wounded you so deeply and you don’t feel they deserve your forgiveness? Even in those times, Jesus said we are to forgive. In the Lord’s Prayer, He said, “Forgive us our sins as we have forgiven those who have sinned against us” (Matthew 6:12). And when Peter asked Jesus how many times we are to forgive someone who sins against us, Peter suggested maybe seven times. But Jesus said, “No, not seven times…but seventy times seven!”(Matthew 18:22). This is what it means to freely forgive, to always be willing and then to do it, because it’s one more condition of God’s plan for our healing.

  1. We cast all our cares over on the Lord. Do you have a worried spirit? Are you worried about your healing? Consider this question: What has your worrying done for you toward receiving your healing? Absolutely nothing, right? To change your circumstance – to go from needing healing to being healed – you will have to cast all your cares over on the Lord. First Peter 5:7 tells us, “Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully” (Amplified Bible, Classic Edition).

To cast our cares requires that we humble ourselves before God. It’s so easy to carry our cares without even realizing it. Even worse is not to recognize that it’s a form of pride. First Peter 5:5 says, “In the same way, you who are younger must accept the authority of the elders. And all of you, dress yourselves in humility as you relate to one another, for, ‘God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.’”

We weren’t created to carry our cares; we were created to cast our cares, and when we cast them, we are actually humbling ourselves before God.

Jesus Give Us Life

John 10:10 tells us it’s the devil who came to kill, steal and destroy. It’s Jesus who gives us resurrection life! “The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you” (Romans 8:11).

Healing Is God’s Plan for You! And God has given you all power and dominion and authority over the devil and all his evil works, which includes sickness. Second Corinthians 10:3-5 tells us, “We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.”

We receive our healing by faith.

We freely forgive.

We cast all our cares over on the Lord.

And when anything contrary to God’s plan for healing for our lives comes across our minds, we reject and cast down those thoughts (Matthew 6:31; 2 Corinthians 10:5). And we renew our minds according to the Word, so we speak only the Word regarding our healing.

Romans 12:2 tells us, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” (NKJV).

Saying the same thing day after day and expecting a change will never work. To get a different result, we will have to change what we’re saying and thinking…because we say what we think, don’t we? So how do we do that? We renew our mind according to the Word of God. We speak the Word only. And this is how we release our faith for our healing: We speak it. We declare it. And we receive it by faith.

Healing Is God’s Plan for You! That is the will of God for you and your body. Settle it in your heart, mind and spirit today.
