Jesus says in John 4:23-24, "But the hour is coming, and now is, when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is a spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth."

Does God still preform miracles of Healing?

   And he said up to me, My grace is sufficient for thee:
  For MY strength is mad perfect in weakness. Most
  gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities
  that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
 ( II Corinthians 12:9)

     One of the most common question that plagues our minds when we find ourselves dealing with a chronic illness that won’t go away ,as Christians is; “Do miracles of healing still happen or are they just something that we read about in the bible? “  You could ask me, after realizing the pain that I have gone through, while learning to dealing with my own illness; ” Do I believe that God HEALS?”  The answer is defiantly YES!  I believe more than ever that GOD ALWAYS HEALS .  I can say that honestly, despite that fact that I still suffer from the pain of  having a chronic illness. GOD ALWAYS HEALS!!!

    The next question you could ask me is; “ How can I say   I have Lupus , or any other illness that I deal with on a daily bases, and still say that I have FAITH in God power to HEAL ?“   Many Christians, and I was one of them, have a mistaken conception concerning “ Healing”.  We all tend to  view Healing and Curing as the same thing. But they are not! Curing happens when a physical illness, or injury, gets measurable better. Healing , on the other hand ,is the process of becoming WHOLE!  In my study of people who are chronically ill, HEALING happens even when CURING is not possible. In fact, a person can be lying on their death bed, and still find God’s HEALING power in their life. How can this be?

     During  the healing process you reach a place of wholeness, of deep inner peace that passes all understanding.  From this heavenly place, inside your heart and mind,  you learn to deal with your illness with less fear and suffering. You face  your pain , with greater clarity and compassion for yourself. While curing is wonderful when it occurs, healing has a far more out reaching consequence.  Why? Because of the freedom it brings. The freedom from fear ! freedom to forgive others! freedom to love others! To love yourself! And to love God! Freedom to live “Life” to its fullest, even if your “Life” time on this earth is limited.

   Does this mean that we should not believe in the possibility that a miracle of curing will not happen? Does this mean that we should not expect a physical  manifestation of curing to enter our lives?  Unfortunately, in our  fascination with miraculous and sensational , we often fail to recognize the everyday miracles God engineers through out our life time. Properly viewed, ever recovery from an illness or injury is a kind of “Divine Miracle”. The human body has an elaborate eternal system for fighting infections, repairing lacerated tissue, mending broken bones, and even repairing diseased tissue… As a result,  in many cases of illness and injury the ability to be cured lies with in our own body.
