If we want to be effective in ministering healing, or receiving healing, we need to believe God wants to heal. Our own faith may waiver if we’re not convinced God wants to heal. Knowing that God always receives glory when He heals encourages us to believe God for healing, and also to have proper motives in bringing healing to others.
God wants to heal so that men will give glory unto Him. To not honour God and give Him glory is the first step in a downward spiral of sin (cf., Romans 1:20-32).
In John 11:4, it clearly states that a purpose for healing is solely to bring glory to God. In regard to the raising of Lazarus from the dead, Jesus said:
“ . . . ‘This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified by it.’” – John 11:4
Some make the mistake of thinking the sickness itself was for God’s glory. Rather, it was the healing (resurrection) that brought Him glory! Another, secondary purpose of raising Lazarus was to verify that Jesus is the resurrection and the life (verse 25), but Jesus’ own words spell out the reason clearly. To further confirm this, verse 40 reiterates this truth:
“Jesus said to her, ‘Did I not say to you, if you believe, you will see the glory of God?’” – John 11:40
Another scripture which describes healing and miracles as a means of bringing glory to God is Acts 3:12-13:
“But when Peter saw this, he replied to the people, “Men of Israel, why do you marvel at this, or why do you gaze at us, as if by our own power or piety we had made him walk? “The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified His servant Jesus, the one whom you delivered up, and disowned in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release Him.” – Acts 3:12-13 (the healing of the lame man at the beautiful gate).
It had the desired results in that the people glorified God for the healing:
“And when they had threatened them further, they let them go (finding no basis on which they might punish them) on account of the people, because they were all glorifying God for what had happened” – Acts 4:21
The Supernatural healing that were demonstrated by Jesus Christ are now ready to take place again as you saw in the Book of Acts..
His Name shall be Glorified!
Please repent and accept the free gift of Jesus Christ’s death on the cross for payment for your sins.
