Why God Wants to Heal You

“WHY GOD WANTS TO HEAL YOU”

 INTRO: This week we conclude 40 Days of Prayer at Jubilee, but plan to keep expanding our prayer emphasis. Let’s persevere in prayer for your specific personal miracle and for a church-wide refreshing (Acts 3:19). In this healing service we’re going to focus on why God wants to heal YOU!

I. GOD HEALED PEOPLE IN THE BIBLE.

  1. God healed people in the Old Testament (Ex. 15:26; Ps. 103:2-3).
  2. Jesus healed people in the New Testament (Matt. 4:23-24; Acts 10:38).
  3. God used ordinary people to facilitate healing (Mark 16:17-18; James 5:14-15; Acts).

II. GOD STILL HEALS PEOPLE TODAY (Mal. 3:6; Heb. 13:8).

  • Many people today have experienced a healing from God!

III. GOD WANTS TO HEAL YOU.

FIVE REASONS WHY GOD WANTS TO HEAL YOU:

  1. God wants to heal you to display His compassion for you (Matt. 14:14; 20:34; Mk. 1:41-42).
  • Jesus has compassion for you this morning!
  1. God wants to heal you to demonstrate the kingdom of God and its arrival (Matt. 4:23; 10:7-8; Lk. 9:2, 10:9).
  2. God wants to heal you to draw people to Christ (Acts 9:32-35).
  • If God heals you today, would you be willing to tell someone who needs Jesus?
  1. God wants to heal you to destroy the works of the devil (Acts 10:38; 1John 3:8).
  2. God wants to heal you to fulfill prophecy (Isa. 53:5; Matt. 8:16-17; 1Pet. 2:24).
    1. Every time someone is healed, that prophesy is once again fulfilled!
    2. God wants to heal you to fulfill that prophesy again!

CONCLUSION: Do you need healing today? God still heals! He can heal you! He wants to heal you! Will you give Him the opportunity?
