The Names of God – Pt 1

Healing is God’s will

Healing is God’s will for every believer. “Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.” (3 John 2, NASB95) Jesus’ answer to the leaper forever settles the fact that He desires everyone to be healed. “And a leper came to Him and bowed down before Him, and said, “Lord, if You are willing,...

We should be, “rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer,” (Romans...
