The Healing Power of God
Friday, July 7– Sunday, July 9, 2023
God has not abandoned us in our weakness, struggle, or sickness. The Lord has promised that he will be with us always. Scripture tells us that Jesus, “sent them out two by two” to heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘“The kingdom of God has come near to you.” Jesus also said, “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.” Relying on the Scriptures, this retreat will delve into the Christian realm of healing, particularly by looking at and meditating upon some specific instances in Jesus’ physical and spiritual healings. We will explore how God heals within the emotional, physical, and spiritual dimensions, both in ordinary and extraordinary ways, as well as come to understand what our role and response should be.
