Divine Healing

Growing up, doctors were not really the first thing that came to our mind when we got sick. We never had health insurance. Hospitals were not really thought of until we reached the point of "50/50" chance of surviving. I, myself, had never gone or been confined in a hospital until a few years ago when I needed a general medical exam for my US visa. How did my family survive from all of the epidemic diseases that had spread in our country during those years? We ran to God for divine healing.

With the certain form of euthanasia being legalized in one of the states in the US, people will start trusting God for healing again. This euthanasia, I was informed, was created due to the refusal of some of the insurance companies to fund the care for the aged who are undergoing way too expensive medication and are struggling to live. Apparently, the doctor's role here is to give them doses of chemical that slowly ushers them to death. And it is being done with the consent of the family, of course. Whatever... euthanasia is euthanasia and it is a sin.

Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever! If He healed all kinds of diseases in the past, He can heal us today and tomorrow of our sicknesses and sinfulness!
