“Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him, saying, ‘Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.’ And Jesus said to him, ‘I will come and heal him.’” Matthew 8:5-7
If you want to know what the will of God is concerning physical healing, all you have to do is look at the life and ministry of His Son, Jesus Christ. John 1:14 tells us that Jesus is the Word of God made flesh. In other words, Jesus is the will of God walking and talking upon the earth. God’s Word and God’s will are one and the same. God’s Word is God’s will and God’s will is God’s Word.
Everything that Jesus said and did is a perfect reflection of God’s will towards humanity. In John 5:19 Jesus said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.” Never one time did Jesus ever turn a sick person away. Not once did He tell a person who was suffering with sickness that God was trying to teach them something through their suffering. He never told the sick to come back later because it wasn’t their time to be healed. Why? Because God the Father NEVER says or does these things to the sick! It is ALWAYS God’s will for the sick to be healed!
Once again, Jesus forever settles the issue of God’s will concerning the healing of our bodies. When asked by the centurion to heal his sick servant Jesus said, “I WILL!” Hebrews 13:8 plainly tells us that we serve this very SAME Jesus today. He has not changed His mind concerning physical healing. If healing was His will then, it is still His will today!
I find it exciting to learn that Jesus not only said the words, “I WILL,” but that He also offered to take the time out of His busy schedule to personally come to this man’s house and heal his servant. In other words, Jesus was, and still is, willing to do whatever it takes for you and me to be healed. This becomes even more evident by the fact that He was willing to pay the ultimate price for our healing with His death upon the cross!
If you have ever doubted that it was God’s will for you to be healed, then just take a moment to reflect upon the cross of Christ. If God was willing to let His Son be beaten, spit upon and crucified for your healing (See Isaiah 53:4-5, 1 Peter 2:24) then He most certainly is willing for you to be healed! It is clear that God is very serious about you being healed!
Confession: God proved that healing was His will for me when He allowed His Son to take stripes and die upon the cross so that I could be healed.
