Healing the sick is a powerful representation of the strength, love and mercy of God. In the Bible there are many verses that reference healing, whether it be physical, mental or emotional health.
For example, Psalm 103:2-3 instructs us to “Bless the Lord…who heals all your diseases”.
Or Matthew 9:22 which says, “Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment.”
James 5:14-15 says, “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.”
Taken together, these passages demonstrate that in times of illness, we can trust in God and seek comfort and wisdom to experience true healing. It is through Him that we know eternity has been secured and we can be confident that whatever may ail us now will soon be remedied through Christ’s everlasting love and grace.

11 I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house.

Which is easier: to say to this paralyzed man, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, take your mat and walk’? 10 But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.” So he said to the man, 11 “I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.” 12 He got up, took his mat and walked out in full view of them all. This amazed everyone and they praised God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this!”
