Divine healing is a mysterious thing. Sometimes we ask and receive immediate supernatural healing, but at other times we have to take antibiotics, or other medication, and heal slowly. There are so many theories, doctrines, and theologies but nobody has the real answer to why divine healing is not always available to us. I have written a book concerning this but recently I preached a sermon titled ‘Getting real about healing‘ where I appeal to all who suffer to see the bigger picture and find their hope and comfort in the sure promises of God. The message is taken from Acts 9:32-43 and is limited to an exposition of this passage of scripture.
