When approached after a speaking engagement by a woman inquiring whether God heals anymore, Sala quickly responded, “I believe He heals just as much.” Sala explains healing in the context of his own research, biblical narratives, and personal stories of physical and spiritual healing, with the conclusion that the manner in which God heals is part of His sovereign dealing with us as individuals.
“God touches some individuals in a supernatural manner and brings immediate healing. There are times, however, when God works through the hands of skilled physicians. Then there are times when, for reasons we may never understand, God blesses some with suffering, allowing them to taste of His presence and goodness, transforming pain into purpose,” Sala shares in What You Need to Know About Healing.
Understanding healing is crucial because “challenges to our health will never leave us where they find us. One of two things will happen: they will drive us closer to God or they will embitter us.” Sala propels readers toward the reality of an all-sovereign, loving God, who chooses the manner in which He brings healing, the situations and circumstances, and the occasions and methods of showing His might and power.
Sala outlines eight steps that help to find healing God’s way – steps that he refers to as a staircase for transcending the shackles of pain and suffering to kneel in front of Him who loves us and will heal us His way, not necessarily our way.
A foundational and definitive evangelical resource on healing, What You Need to Know About Healing is for individuals, pastors, and churches, including caregivers and other health professionals.
