Grace For Healing
God wants you well
your sins are forgiven

When Jesus healed the paralysed man lowered before him, He first declaredWhen He saw their faith, He said to him, “Man, your sins are forgiven you.” Luke 5:20

Most people I know would interpret this as proving the link between unconfessed sin and sickness. 

It is a common interpretation that the man had sins in his life and therefore either caused his paralysis or hindered his healing.

Today I’m going to share my understanding of this passage; I hope it sets you free from any confusion or condemnation that your sin may have caused or delayed your healing.

the righteousness of god in Christ Jesus

If you’re a Christian, you’re the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, yet we don’t always understand how our beliefs from childhood can counter this Truth. 

This is part 4 of my series on The Healing of the Man Lowered through the Roof and it follows on from WHY OUR FILTHY RAGS MAY HINDER HEALING

Today we look at ways in which we can support ourselves from the filthy rags which hinder our relationship with the Lord (and His healing) and adopt our true identity, as the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.

filthy rags

Today we look at self-righteousness, or filthy rags as it’s referred to in Scripture. This is part 3 of the series on the healing of the paralysed man lowered through the roof in front of Jesus. 

In a crowded house, no doubt numerous people needed healing. We’re told ‘And the power of the Lord was present to heal them.’ Luke 5:17

 Yet as far as we know, only the paralysed man received. So why was the paralysed man and his friends so different to everyone else that day?

jesus saw their faith

When Jesus saw four men lower their paralysed friend through the roof, the Bible says ‘Jesus saw their faith.’

Today we look at the visible active faith that impressed Jesus so much and I’ll suggest 5 possible ways our faith can also be seen.

In our healing journeys, how can we ensure that we have the active faith that these guys had?

Do we need to impress Jesus with our faith? What does faith without works is dead mean?

godly friends

Today is part 1 of my series about the story of Jesus healing the man who was lowered through the roof. Today’s focus is on the 4 Godly friends who carried their paralysed friend to Jesus. 

I’ll share my thoughts on how we recognise the right Godly friends and identify the wrong ones!

As we walk through the healing journey, we must surround ourselves with Godly friends. Right at the beginning of the Bible, God says ‘It’s not good that man should be alone’ Gen 2:18

help my unbelief

The Bible says a hardened heart, is an unbelieving one. Today’s post is a discussion on how we can support and help ourselves with unbelief.

God wants us to have a childlike faith, but through the years we become hardened to the truth of God’s Word, sometimes unconsciously.

We pray and claim to believe Him for certain things to come to pass, but as the months turn to years, the faith we once had can dwindle.

I’m sure you’ve heard the analogy of the frog in boiling water. Put a frog in a pan, gradually increase the heat and the frog boils to death. But, put the frog in boiling water to begin with, and the frog jumps out of the pan.

I think unbelief in God’s promises can be a bit like that, especially in regard to healing.

characteristics of a hardened heart

Today we consider the characteristics of a hardened heart and explore why this hinders our healing. I’ll consider what causes our hearts to be hardened and in the next post, we’ll ponder some ideas to help us soften. 

If you haven’t read last week’s post on THE PARABLE OF THE SOWER, do have a read of this first. 

It is no doubt the most challenging post I’ve written so far. I guess I realised whilst writing it, that my heart isn’t where it needs to be.

the parable of the sower explained

I believe the Parable of the Sower explained in 3 of the Gospels, reveals why so many of us have yet to receive healing. Are you trusting in God for a healing breakthrough? Then I hope this helps…

If Jesus explained the Parable of the Sower 3 times, then it must surely be essential to our lives. Today, I’d like to talk about the parable in relation to our healing journey. 

I’ll also give 7 tips to help you as you plant God’s Word in your heart.

Matt 4:4 tells us we cannot live without the Word of God. 

Think about the things we cannot live without – oxygen, food, water……the Word of God is a basic need!

Pro 4:22 says that God’s word is “life . . . and health to all their flesh” which suggests that there is a relationship between physical healing and the Bible. 

“As you spend time in the Word of God, the Word is actually resuscitating and reviving your bodyJoseph Prince. I don’t know about you, but I want the Word to impact my physical body!

So let’s dive into the Parable of the Sower and how Jesus explained it to see how it relates to our healing.

as a man thinks in his heart

The Bible tells us that we think with our hearts. “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he” Pro 23:7 If you’re believing God for a healing, then using your spiritual eyes is a must.

Today’s post is about the use of our imagination and how, when used correctly, it can pre-requisite our healing.

If you find it difficult to allow yourself to dream, I will suggest some reasons why, and then I’ll give you 5 ideas on how to use your imagination in alignment with the Word of God.

Today I explore the relationship between forgiveness and healing. 

We understand the necessity of forgiving others, but what if we don’t? Will it hinder our healing?  Does it cause disease? 

I will then give 5 steps to implement to help us forgive when we are healing. 

As Christians, we know we are meant to forgive. God invites us to forgive those who wrong us, it’s even in the Lord’s prayer. But what happens to our bodies when we don’t?
