The very first thing you will really have to grasp is how good and merciful God and Jesus really are. Every time God decides to heal someone, He is showing incredible mercy, love, goodness, and compassion towards that person. So the first thing you will need to grasp from Scripture are the specific verses that will show us how merciful, kind, and compassionate God the Father really is.
You have to realize that God the Father does have these attributes in His personality. If you do not believe that God the Father is a good, merciful, loving, kind, and compassionate God – then you may not be able to receive a divine healing from Him because you will not have enough faith and belief in His ability to even want to heal you in the first place.
Many people are scared to death of God the Father. They know that He does have a judgment and wrath side to His personality and as a result, they have become too scared to approach Him to enter into any kind of close personal relationship with Him. And then when they do get sick and need a divine healing from Him, they are too scared to try and approach Him for their healing.
So the first thing each Christian must really grab a hold of if they want to try and press in for a divine healing is that God the Father really does have a very loving and tender side to His personality – and that many of the time He actually does want to heal us and help deliver us out of any adverse situation that we may have just fallen into. And any kind of disease, illness, or sickness is definitely an adverse situation.
Study these first set of verses very, very carefully. When you read one verse after the other, you will really see how loving, kind, good, merciful, and compassionate God the Father really is – and as such, that He does have a natural desire in His personality to want to help His children out if they need any kind of help or deliverance from Him.
- “… But You are God, ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, abundant in kindness …” (Nehemiah 9:17)
- “The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.” (Psalm 103:8)
- “But You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth.” (Psalm 86:15)
- “Return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness …” (Joel 2:13)
- “The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy. The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works.” (Psalm 145:8)
- “The Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting …” (Psalm 100:5)
- “For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him … But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him.” (Psalm 103:11,17)
Notice the words “mercy or merciful“ are stated in every one of these Scripture verses. Every time God decides to heal someone, He is showing incredible mercy towards that person. These verses are all telling us that not only is God merciful – but that He is “abundant in mercy.“ In other words, He is full of mercy and goodness.
For those of you who are too afraid to approach God for any type of meaningful personal relationship, notice several of these verses state that God the Father is “slow to anger.” These verses are telling us that God has a long fuse. God does not blow as easily and quickly as some of us will do. It really does take quite a bit to cause Him to lose His temper. All of these verses are showing you that you have absolutely nothing to fear in approaching God to enter into a close, loving, personal relationship with Him.
God is your perfect loving Father and He has nothing but your best interests at heart. If you have been struck with any kind of illness or disease – do not be afraid to approach Him for a divine healing. You may be pleasantly surprised with what He might just do for you.
