1 Corinthians 12:9 says that the Holy Spirit gives the “gifts of healing.” This is the only gift that is in the plural. This is an indication that God desires healing for more than just our physical sicknesses. In fact, Luke 4 records Jesus standing up to read in the synagogue and while reading, He quoted from Isaiah 61:1-2 which revealed the Spirit’s work of healing spiritually, emotionally, and mentally through Himself.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the good news to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed;” Luke 4:18 NKJV
I am convinced that the Holy Spirit longs for us to depend on Him to heal us. He does not choose to heal every time we ask, but He does want us to pray in faith, believing, and trust the outcome to Him! We err by not asking. Years ago I coined this truism:
“Expect the Answer ‘Yes’ and Accept the Answer ‘No.’”
