Prayer and Healing, Part 2

Faith means to believe with expectancy, but it also means to rest and trust. When we pray for healing, we’re not always certain of what God’s will is, but we can come before him with an attitude of rest and trust. In this message Stuart Briscoe teaches from James 5:13-18 to help us understand why prayer for the sick is important, why we should pray, and what we can expect from God in answering our prayers. You’ll come away with a greater understanding about the decisive factors that make prayer work. To support this ministry financially, visit: https://www.oneplace.com/donate/508/29

Jesus Cured the Sick, Part 2

There are many instances in Scripture where Jesus cured the sickphysically and spiritually. Can we expect that same kind of healing? Why are some people healed while others are not? These are important questions worthy of study, but another question that is equally important to ask is: why did Jesus perform miracles in the first place? Too often we have an inaccurate understanding of why Jesus heals. We’re so desperate with our self-interests that we miss the point of his healingsthe true significance. In this message by Stuart, we learn what Jesus was trying to illustrate with miracle healings and discover the hope we have in overcoming our troubles and ailments.

Miraculous Healing

We’re hungry for spectacular healing in our livesfor God to take away our infirmities in a moment’s work. For 38 years the crippled man lay on his filthy mat near the pool of Bethesda hoping to be healed when the water stirred. Jesus sought him out and asked him, Do you want to get well? On the surface, this might seem like an odd question, but maybe Jesus was getting at something richly profound. In this message taught from John 5:1-15, Stuart Briscoe discusses how when Jesus performs a spectacular healing miracle, he heals so much more than just our bodies.

Trusting in Trouble, Part 2

When trouble comes your way, are you quick to question it? Have you ever gone so far as to question God Himself? The world can tempt us into asking, How could a loving God let something so terrible happen? Have you ever found yourself pondering that question? Instead of questioning the character of God, Job willingly received suffering from God's hands. But how was he able to accept the seemingly unacceptable? Jill shares how we can experience a transformation of attitude and move from a place of questioning God to a place of trusting God.

In less picturesque terms, Paul did the same for the Colossians. We, too, need to know how to get there from here. To support this ministry financially, visit: https://www.oneplace.com/donate/508/29
