Denis asks “Did God ever say “No” when I prayed for someone for healing?” This is a good question, and the answer will help us to build a strong foundation of assurance for faith for healing.
I can honestly say that God has never told me not to minister healing to someone. It says in Isaiah 53:4-5 “ Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy]. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.”
Scripture makes it plain that it is God’s will to heal. Jesus says 3 John 1:2 “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”
This should be a comfort and a blessing for us to know that His will is to always heal us. And now we can do as it says in Hebrews 4:16, “ Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.“
