Today I want to encourage you with the fact that if you’re a believer in Jesus, you have the ability and the authority to heal the sick. Many times in church, we’re taught to pray for the sick, and there is a valid verse about praying for the sick, that the prayer of faith will raise up the sick when they’re anointed with oil in James.
However, scripture also says that you’re to heal the sick. So there’s a difference between praying for the sick, and healing the sick. Praying for the sick indicates that you’re asking God to do it. Healing the sick is you receiving the authority that He gave you to command sickness to go, or to command sickness to move.
So I believe that the church will see a lot more results in healing once we begin to heal the sick, and not necessarily stop praying for the sick, but really focus on you doing the healing versus you asking God to heal.
