The awesome, holy, mighty God is the One who heals us. Scripture makes it clear that God is by nature the One who heals. When we ask Him to heal we are not asking Him to do something against His nature but what is in direct line with His will. God cannot change; Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Yet long before He became man, God revealed to His people that it is His nature to heal. I am the LORD, who heals you Jesus, on the other hand, came to reveal God’s purpose in saving, healing and restoring His people. In the New Testament the Greek word translated “save” also means “heal.” The Lord’s saving purposes are His healing purposes. His desire to heal is, therefore, part of His total plan of salvation.
