God Heals Those Who Are Broken-hearted

Before I was converted to the Truth, I did not know that God can really heal.  But when I started reading God’s word, I found that He is the only one who

can do so: “He heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds” (Psalm 147:3).  He healed me when my heart was broken and all my sins were forgiven; that’s what He means by binding their wounds.

The Bible says that it is God who calls us after we truly read His word and obey what it says.  If we accept that God is the Saviour in our life, even though we are sick and in difficulties, He will make sure that we are ultimately healed.  His words continue in Isaiah 30:26 and Leviticus 13:18, and Psalm 103:37. “Who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases.”  We see that whether we are a sinner or have a serious disease, if we come to God, we will have our sins forgiven and will be healed.

Remember that all of us were sinners but when we came to God sins were forgiven, we are now new creatures by doing what pleases God and His son Jesus Christ.

In Exodus 15:26 God warned Israel not to go against His commands, else He would bring upon them all the diseases of the Egyptians. 

In the Acts of the Apostles 9:32-35, Peter arrived at Lydda. There he found a man who was paralyzed and had been bedridden for eight years. With the power of the Lord Peter healed the man.  As a result, all people who dwelt at Lydda turned to the Lord when they saw with their own eyes that God has such power and authority.
