There are many Bible verses telling us that God heals . There are also many teaching from the Scripture telling us many things relating to healing and how to deal with diseases as well. The following 5 facts will help us to have a better understanding on the issue of healing.

1. Sickness and diseases are the result of sin

There are clear teaching in the bible saying that whenever God's people will obey God's command, they will be blessed (Deuteronomy 28:1-14). However, when God's people are walking away from God's words and committed in a sinful life and disobedience, it will cause many curses of God to come and diseases are one of the result from all  these curses. For in Deuteronomy (28:58-61), it said :

58 If you do not carefully follow all the words of this law, which are written in this book, and do not revere this glorious and awesome name--the LORD your God-- 59 the LORD will send fearful plagues on you and your descendants, harsh and prolonged disasters, and severe and lingering illnesses. 60 He will bring upon you all the diseases of Egypt that you dreaded, and they will cling to you. 61 The LORD will also bring on you every kind of sickness and disaster not recorded in this Book of the Law, until you are destroyed.

2. God will heal His people 

God will never enjoy punishing His people and seeing them attack by diseases. However,since the result of sin is terrible and Satan will gain the power to attack on any people who doesn't obey God. God in His mercy still promised that He will be the healer of His people.

Exodus 15:26, "I am the LORD that health thee." He is truly a merciful God who is willing to heal our diseases and That's why he said it clear to His people that He will heal their sickness and diseases.
3. Jesus has already paid for our transgressions

We really have to thank God for Jesus, the son of God has came to this world to died for all our sin on the cross and because the 39 lashings on His back, we are healed.That's the payment for our healing. As what Isaiah 53:5 says that :

"But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed"

4.  All Christians have the authority to heal in the name of Jesus

Before Jesus leaved this world to heaven , He commanded His disciples to perform signs and wonders for the purpose of witnessing to the gosple. One of the authority he has already given to all the followers of Christ in Mark 16 :18 being that :

" they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well."

When we start to lay hands on the sick and command the sickness to be gone by faith, healing miracles will happen.

5. Healing is for today

There are no words in the Bible saying that God will only heal His people in the past but not today.In fact, the Bible clearly saying that  "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." (Hebrew 13:8) That's why , all the followers of Christ can boldly pray for others healing without any doubt and fear.

Conclusion :

In order to remove all the obstacles that may become a hindering or blockage of healing, lead the person to confess one's own sin as what the Bible says that " If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9) (especially related to that particular disease and some need to deal with generational curses as well) and also dealing with unforgiveness"and forgive us our debts,as we also have forgiven our debtors."(Matthew 6 :12) are the usual two main areas that need to be solved before we can see healing take places. However, there are still many unknown reasons that we won't be able answer them all when dealing with non-healing issue after prayer, we can only being faithful to God's word and keep on praying for the sick and obey on God's command in this and start to pray for people and see healing miracles happen in the name of Jesus, now.
