Divine Healer

Spread the love

One-minute read.

Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

James 5:14-15

Calling the church’s elders to pray over us during sickness will connect us with the Lord’s divine healing. One way or another, God will restore our health. The Divine Healer saves the sick and forgives their sins, restoring their body and soul. James prescribes prayer and oil, Biblical medicine, as the cure for illness. 

The reference to forgiveness of sins comes from the possibility that the illness comes from persistent wrongdoing.    Therefore, the Lord’s forgiveness brings healing. Coming before the elders with repentance, confessing sin, and having them pray for the person means they will turn from the sin that caused the illness and experience complete healing. Sin can physically impact us if it becomes a habitual offense. 

Sometimes, healing comes from the Lord calling us home. Leaving our physical bodies and entering eternity with Jesus restores us to total health. All the troubles of this world disappear, our bodies made new when we reach heaven. Hard to accept from an earthly perspective, healing comes in many forms. One way or another, God heals us from our illness. We find salvation and forgiveness of sins through prayer and supplication, cleansing us and making us whole. Bring your ailments before the Lord, allowing others to pray for you, and find divine healing from above.


God heals us.


Lord, thank You for Your divine healing. Strengthen our faith as we come to You to restore our bodies and minds. Give us complete healing as we submit our lives to You.  Forgive our sins and make us new.
