might have wondered about this or maybe you've never even thought of
asking. Nevertheless, the answer to this question will prove to be the
foundation of these future bible study lessons on healing.
Let me first explain the difference between healing and miracles.
Is there a difference at all?
Let’s use the many instances in the bible when the blind received their sight. By these we can find examples of bible healing and an example of a miracle. I have extracted three cases below.
Jesus helped a whole lot of blind people during his life time.
reading these three scriptures you may wonder ‘Why didn't
Jesus just give each of these men a miracle (which is instantaneous)?
Was the scripture trying to say that he could not do that? We all know that he could anything if he wanted to, so
Why go to all the length to ...
Why would Jesus do all this?
.... unless he was trying to teach, by example?
Remember, Jesus was also a teacher, and apart from the multitude of people, he was always followed by his 12 disciples who watched him very closely.
So Jesus was teaching us by example three powerful things:
Example #1 ( Mark 10:51-52) Teaches Us That:
Example #2 ( John 9:6-7) Teaches Us That:
Example #3 (Mark 8:22 - 25) Teaches Us That:
Jesus himself has shown us the difference between healing and miracles. We can receive our deliverance in more ways than just one. He uses many different methods to bring complete healing in the lives of his people.
Although you know the difference between healing and miracles, I bet you would choose a miracle over healing any day!
I know I would!
We might not have the answer to this question but God is a Supreme God. Experience teaches quite a lot and the healing process may allow us the opportunity to unlearn destructive habits and learn better practices.
He knows our past, present, and our future. We can totally trust in him that he also knows which process works best, to get us to complete health, and to keep us there.
