GOD HEAL YOU?
of us who believe in the God of Christianity, and even
those of us who don’t, have been taught that healing
miracles are real, but rare. The doctrines we’ve been
fed, or our life’s experiences, have led us to
conclude that God heals mostly through medicine—and if
not through medicine, then not at all.

either, but thankfully, God is—if we know that He is
willing and able to provide when medicine cannot.
research and experiences have taught me that God wants
the chronically ill to be healed in body, mind and
spirit, and that He is willing and able to heal them
supernaturally when medicine fails to provide a complete
recovery, and even when it doesn’t. But His healing
isn’t always immediate, and not everyone who asks will
receive a miracle.

what experience has taught most of us to believe.
Physical as well as spiritual healing are God’s will
for humanity, but we must dispel the doubts that prevent
us from embracing this reality. Also, dysfunctional
biochemistry, unresolved emotional trauma and spiritual
strongholds can hinder our knowledge of God’s love for
us, and consequently, our ability to receive healing
Chronic Illness: By His Spirit, Through His Resources,
offers solutions for addressing these and other
roadblocks to healing. It proposes another path to the
helpless and hopeless, which isn’t based upon wishful
thinking and random chance, but rather, buried truth and
history, and evidence that has healed multitudes in
underdeveloped nations and in Pentecostal and
charismatic churches, where belief in supernatural
healing is strong. A path that is less trodden in
nations of wealth and reason, where reality is that
which is experienced in the physical world and hope is
in science and man’s ability to provide. A path that
is ignored because people don’t know what the God of
Christianity can do, don’t realize how vast and
all-encompassing His love is, and may not believe that
they deserve that love, anyway. I invite you to step out
and journey down this path with me. You may find that
the gift of healing is meant for you, too.

So if you’ve
been suffering from disease for years, why not take a
chance and hope for a miracle from God? What do you have
to lose? If you’ve invested thousands of hours and
dollars into medicine, only to be frustrated by its
results, losing a few months or years to a new hope may
be a small sacrifice. Especially if the alternative is
to continue down a path of failed or only moderately
helpful treatments. Take heart—God loves you and wants
to heal you!
