Sermon Notes

Psalm 103:1-5 NLT
Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole
heart, I will praise his holy name. Let all that I am
praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things
he does for me. He forgives all my sins and heals
all my diseases. He redeems me from death and
crowns me with love and tender mercies. He fills
my life with good things. My youth is renewed like
the eagle’s!
Deuteronomy 34:7 NLT
Moses was 120 years old when he died, yet his
eyesight was clear, and he was as strong as ever.
Hebrews 11:1 NKJ
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the
evidence of things not seen.
Why We Believe God Is Our Healer:

  1. Because it is His Name
    Exodus 15:25-26 NIV
    Then Moses cried out to the Lord, and the Lord
    showed him a piece of wood. He threw it into the
    water, and the water became sweet. There the
    Lord made a decree and a law for them, and there
    he tested them. He said, “If you listen carefully to
    the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right
    in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands
    and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any
    of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am
    the Lord, who heals you.”
    Acts 3:16 NKJ
    “And His name, through faith in His name, has
    made this man strong, whom you see and know.
    Yes, the faith which comes
    through Him has given him this perfect soundness
    in the presence of you all.”
  2. Because it is His Will
    Matthew 8:2-3 NLT
    Suddenly, a man with leprosy approached him and
    knelt before him. “Lord,” the man said, “if you are
    willing, you can heal me and make me clean.”
    Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,”
    he said. “Be healed!” And instantly the leprosy
  3. Because it is His Mission
    Acts 10:38 NKJ
    …how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the
    Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing
    good and healing all who were oppressed by the
    devil, for God was with Him.
    John 10:10 NKJ
    “The thief does not come except to steal, and to
    kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may
    have life, and that they may have it more
    Luke 13:16 NKJ
    “So ought not this woman, being a daughter of
    Abraham, whom Satan has bound—think of it—for
    eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the
  4. Because it is His Promise
    Isaiah 53:5 NKJ
    But He was wounded for our transgressions, He
    was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for
    our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we
    are healed.
    1 Peter 2:24 NKJ
    …who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the
    tree, that we,
    having died to sins, might live for righteousness—
    by whose stripes you were healed.
    Matthew 8:14-17 NLT
    When Jesus arrived at Peter’s house, Peter’s
    mother-in-law was sick in bed with a high fever. But
    when Jesus touched her hand, the fever left her.
    Then she got up and prepared a meal for him. That
    evening many demon-possessed people were
    brought to Jesus. He cast out the evil spirits with a
    simple command, and he healed all the sick. This
    fulfilled the word of the Lord through the prophet
    Isaiah, who said, “He took our sicknesses and
    removed our diseases.”
    Mark 5:25-34 NLT
    A woman in the crowd had suffered for twelve
    years with constant bleeding. She had suffered a
    great deal from many doctors, and over the years
    she had spent everything she had to pay them, but
    she had gotten no better. In fact, she had gotten
    worse. She had heard about Jesus, so she came
    up behind him through the crowd and touched his
    robe. For she thought to herself, “If I can just touch
    his robe, I will be healed.” Immediately the bleeding
    stopped, and she could feel in her body that she
    had been healed of her terrible condition. Jesus
    realized at once that healing power had gone out
    from him, so he turned around in the crowd and
    asked, “Who touched my robe?” His disciples said
    to him, “Look at this crowd pressing around you.
    How can you ask, ‘Who touched me?’” But he kept
    on looking around to see who had done it. Then
    the frightened woman, trembling at the realization
    of what had happened to her, came and fell to her
    knees in front of him and told him what she had
    done. And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has
    made you well. Go in peace. Your suffering is
