The Bible tells us that if you want to know what God is like, we just need to look to Jesus. Did you know that when Jesus walked the earth, more than two-thirds of His ministry involved healing the sick? This implies that God wants you healed, restored and made whole. Jesus never gave sickness to anybody. Never once did Jesus look at someone and say, “You are too healthy. Receive leprosy to learn to be humble!” Instead, Jesus was full of compassion and was always willing and able to heal all those who came to Him. He is the Lord who heals you–today and always.
- “Suddenly, a man with leprosy approached him and knelt before him. “Lord,” the man said, “if you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean.” Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!” And instantly the leprosy disappeared.” ~Matthew 8:2-3 (NLT)
This leper didn’t have a problem believing that Jesus had the ability and power to heal him. He just wasn’t sure if Jesus was willing to do it for him. But look at Jesus’ response to the leper and see God’s heart for you where healing is concerned. Jesus answered the leper by touching him and saying, “I am willing. Be healed.” Jesus is willing and today God wants you to know that He is both able AND willing to heal you. Begin to realize and believe this today.

- “Great crowds came to him, bringing the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute, and many others, and laid them at his feet; and he healed them.” ~Matthew 15:30
All you need to do for God to heal you is to come to Him with your need and believe through faith you have received.

God loves to give to His children because it brings joy to His heart. When you place a demand on Him, such as looking to Him to heal you, you let Him be God. When you draw from His fullness, His abundance of life, health and blessings then you delight in Him. God wants you to come expectantly to Him for your healing. He is ready to pour His abundance out for you. Begin to see His heart of love that always wants to give to you.
- “News about him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed, and he healed them.” Matthew 4:24

Isaiah 53 is proof of the Lord’s love and His desire for you to be whole. Jesus was violently scourged beyond human recognition by the Roman torture equipment. His flesh was shredded to the point His bones were exposed, starkly white amidst the blood and torn muscles. He bore the stripes so that we don’t have to. His body was broken so that ours can be whole. And by His stripes, we have been healed.
