...Continued from previous article on Scripture on Healing
I (Katherine T Owen) received significant healing after 14 years bedbound with severe Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. Healing bible quotes played an important part in my healing.
I still live with ME but at a far less severe level :-)
You may ask: Have I been ill too long to recover now. Is it too late for me?
Please read the bible story in the image below.
The scripture on healing in the image above answers the question: Can I be healed of longterm illness?
This man Peter heals at the temple has been lame since birth.
Have you been ill longer than that?
The scripture on healing by Peter and John allows us to practise faith for the possibility that the long term effects of sickness can be removed. The man goes from paralysis to “walking, and leaping”.
For myself, you might think that, after 14 years bedbound, I would not be able to walk normally. I can't tell you how many people told me that permanent damage was being done to my body.
At the time of writing I can't walk far, but I walk just fine.
And I know others, who – after years of illness – do the same.

“Be merciful to me, LORD, for I am faint;
O LORD, heal me, for my bones are in agony.
My soul is in anguish.
How long, O LORD, how long?
Turn, O LORD, and deliver me;
save me because of your unfailing love.”
(Psalm 6, NIV Bible)
You may ask: How long will it take to recover by faith?
Along with many other healing bible quotes, the scripture on healing of Peter healing the lame man expands our faith for the possibility that we can recover immediately.
Think about it: Was there a moment when you became ill?
Could there be a moment when you become well?
How would that moment feel?
How does it feel?
Bring those feelings into this moment right now.

Perhaps you are asking: do I need to be a Christian to be healed by Jesus?
i.) Jesus heals gentiles
Firstly, the Centurion in the Bible quote above is not a Jew, he is a Roman.
This example of Jesus healing in the Bible lets you know that you do not need to be Jewish to receive healing from Jesus... or Christian.
It is not necessary to belong to any particular religion to receive healing from Jesus.
Jesus heals the Syrophoenician woman, who is also not Jewish.
ii.) Secondly, we can use this scripture on healing to strengthen our belief that distant healing is possible.
Jesus is not physically present and yet the servant was still healed.
iii.) Thirdly, this scripture on healing emphasises once again the importance of belief.
Do you believe you can be healed?
Do you choose to believe you can be healed?
The bible story where Peter heals the lame man highlights another belief we can practice to assist faith healing. This will be explored in a new article coming up soon...
We need to learn to expect something good from God.
