10 Lies We Believe About Healing

I keep thinking about this sermon I listened to back in the fall. The content was all about healing and miracles and if you keep listening after the sermon there are some amazing testimonies.

The power of Jesus’ healing is something that is overlooked in churches today. I believe the reason it doesn’t happen more is because people don’t believe in it. We are asking, believing, and trusting that we are already healed and that the Lord is going to bring us our miracle babies. I desire  to encourage others to have that same confidence so I wanted to share some of the points from the sermon (starts around the 9th minute) in hopes that it encourages someone today.

3 Truths about Healing

1. God can heal.  If He can do anything, then He can heal.”With God all things are possible.”  Matthew 19:26

2. God does heal. Not only can God heal, but He does heal. “I am the Lord, who heals you.”  Exodus 15:26  “Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.”  Matthew 4:23

3. What we believe about healing is important. If you don’t believe in healing, it’s not going to happen. “He did not do many miracles, because of their lack of faith.” Matthew 13:58

10 Lies People Believe About Healing

1. God will heal others but He won’t heal me. God does not show favoritism. Romans 2:11

2. I do not deserve to be healed. None of us deserved to be healed, but Jesus made us worthy when He died on the cross. No sin will keep you from healing. Your sickness may be from sin, but just because you are sick does not mean you are in sin. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases Psalm 103:2-3.

3. Other people need to be healed more than I do. God has the power and authority to heal ALL people. His power is not limited and He cares about each and every individual and their sicknesses.

4. I’ve prayed many times, but I haven’t been healed, so there’s no point getting prayed for again. Every time we pray something happens. Keep asking. Keep believing.

5. I have to have someone lay hands on me to be healed. It is biblical to lay hands on people, but this isn’t the only way. God is the healer, he will heal when and how he wants to. It might be when you are sleeping, when someone is laying hands on you, through a text message, while you are driving, you just never know!

6. I didn’t feel anything when I received prayer. Some people don’t feel anything when they are healed.

7. I wasn’t totally healed, so I’m not really healed. While a miracle happens instantly, healing might happen over time. The 10 lepers were healed as they went. God will finish the work He started in you. He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6

8. I’ve had this problem too long for it to be healed. Healing delayed is not healing denied. It is never too late to be healed.

9. My problem is too small to be healed. God cares about everything no matter how small or how big.

10. My problem or my condition is too big to be healed. Nothing is too big or difficult for God.

If you have been believing lies about the healing power of Jesus, repent. Ask for forgiveness and walk out in faith that He can and He will heal you! Remember, it’s our job to pray, but God’s job to heal.

    #4 really hit home! I often feel like I am praying the same thing over and over and over! God calls us to faithfulness. He calls us to acknowledge Him in ALL and trust His hand to work within us! Thanks for reminding me of the truth of His healing!

    Exactly what I needed to read today. Thank you. I have had so many doubts of my ability to be healed that it’s been overwhelming. You always lift my heart. xoxo

    Caroline, Love this message today. In many of God’s messages (via the bible) they are given as if the prayer has already been answered, like in the walls of Jericho. Pray and then give thanks as if God has already answered and have faith that He will. Then keep circling this in prayer. Have you read The Circle Maker? I heard a message about a month ago, Caroline from our pastor and I feel like God was speaking this into my heart for you. They spoke about how his wife felt like God promised them a child and they waited 7-8 years for this. About 4 years in they decided to get the nursery ready.

    God had you on my heart the entire time this message was being preached and my eyes were filling with tears. I know you have been praying…are you preparing for this baby, Caroline? Maybe it is time to start decorating and thanking God for this miracle coming your way…

    With love, Kim

      Sorry, Caroline. I forgot the most important part. They were told by doctors they would never have children, she had endometriosis really bad. They have three healthy children now and also grandchildren. They had faith in God’s promise.

    I love this post! Seriously I was one of those people that thought healing wasn’t for me or that my issue was too small to be healed. Lies lies lies!! Nothing is to small or to large for God he can do anything. He healed my knee and it didn’t happen like I thought it would but I am healed and so glad to say it!! Great reminder that his power remains the same.

    Awesome post! I’ve struggled in the past, particularly with #9. But while God is so much bigger than any problem we could ever face, He is also small and accessible enough to care about even our tiniest concerns… But Satan loves to trick us with all the lies you listed! Thank you for sharing this.

    Wow. How amazing that TODAY this was your post topic! Just hours ago I typed a blog post about healing and needing prayer… then here you are with this encouraging post about healing! God sure does have His fingerprints on this. Thank you for sharing this today.

    Can I sneak one in that God put on my heart? Sometimes we are healed even if we lack faith. John 5:6-9 shows Jesus healing a man who had no clue who He even was…he was putting his hope in the water to heal him. And yet, Jesus rose above all that and healed him! Love it!

    Sometimes the healing is not about what you want healed. It might be about what God wants to be healed about us……
    I am a Catholic, baptized with my oldest son. We had a Charismatic priest for awhile and we did laying on of hands. People were healed, however there were those who were scared to death of the act of healing through other mortals. Go figure. Ye of little faith still applies event to miracles that are so readily evident! Go God and all of you who practice your faith!

    love how you wrap can&does together and then point out that our own thinking plays a large role in what happens in our lives – a gorgeous thought, as usual 🙂

    This is such a powerful message. Thank you so much for sharing!! These are just lies that Satan would love for us to believe. God’s word tells us otherwise!

    I love this! God is always faithful and I feel like so often…especially with the topic of healing the devil tries to persuade us that we are not worthy of healing, that God has forgotten about us etc. Thanks for the reminder!!

    It is true I had cancer of the bowls a while back and I had faith in Mithra that he would heal my ailment and he followed through praise be unto Mithra.
