Malachi 4:2 “But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.”

Healing is not some once in a lifetime occurrence, nor is it limited to a select few. It is meant for everyone, especially the believer. In fact, Jesus called it “the children’s bread” (Matthew 15:21-26). However because of His compassion, Jesus did not limit this gift to the Jews only but in verses 27-28, He healed the Gentile woman’s daughter because of her faith. The same was true with the centurion whose servant was healed because of his faith (Luke 7:2-10). Your faith activates God. When you move towards Him in faith, He responds with grace. He is not a respecter of persons, but He is a respecter of faith.

Matthew 19:2 reads, “And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them there.” Jesus did not touch everyone who heard Him teach, but that Word that He spoke healed everybody there! Praise be to God! He healed their bodies, He healed their minds, and He healed their spirits. In any situation, God will send you a word and that received word will heal you and deliver you (Psalm 102:20).

In today’s scripture, healing comes when the Sun of righteousness arises. Jehovah-rapha, the God Who heals, is likened to the sun. In His presence, healing flows out like the rays of the sun, enveloping you in His splendor. Your praise and worship usher in the presence of God. Just stay there until you hear from Him. God desires to heal every part of you, not just your physical body. He wants you healed and delivered of any sickness, disease, or oppression.


Heavenly Father, thank You for Your healing power in Your grace and in Your Word. Thank You for including me in Your healing plan. I seek Your touch in any part of me that needs healing so that You will be magnified. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
