EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
If we live long enough, we will all know someone who is sick and in need of “divine healing”.  It may even be us who needs healing and with this type of healing it will require faith. Faith and fruit.
It’s difficult to understand why sometimes Jesus heals and sometimes he doesn’t.  Sometimes it feels as though He is turning His back and looking the other way when we don’t get immediate answers to our prayers, it’s hard not to be disappointed. Maybe even angry but do not give up on your faith.
Please understand; while we are focusing on the unhealed sickness and hurt and pain going on in us and around us, God is focused on a bigger picture. He wants our relationship with Him to be healthy and full of faith with obedience. Yes, obedience to His Word.
God needs us to know in which ways we can offer help to ourselves and also to others by understanding His Word. We can help others when we know His Word which includes:
…the presence of heaven
…the hope of heaven…
…the God-given strength we have experienced…
…the comfort we receive from Him when the tears flow and the heartaches…
….the ability to cope with loss…
….the faith that can move mountains in circumstances that are crushing.
It’s not up to us to say whether a person lives or dies but to have a relationship with our Lord that is s faith filled with action is so important.  A relationship with God that is so close and full of faith and has a purpose that can offer assistance to someone else is “divine.” We can help others cope in the now, and we can be included when we have strong faith; we can be the hands and feet of Jesus with our faith. It’s a God-given opportunity, available through relationship with Him and God desires ALL of us as His daughters to have a close walk, one on one with Him. This prepares us to assist with the “divine hope” which we can offer to someone who is in need of “divine healing”.
Have faith for your answer.
James in the Bible reminds us, “what good is it if you say you have faith and not works?” “Can this kind of faith save you?” (James 2:14)
Faith without fruit is not only false faith; it’s futile faith.
 James gives a challenge, are you ready for it?
“You say you have faith. Show me! Even the demons believe and tremble.” (Vs 18-19) put your faith into action and see what can happen.
