    Yes , Yes , and Yes , God does still heal today : It is always the will of God to heal . God's salvation is 5 fold : Healing ; Preservation ; Deliverance ; and Soundness of Mind ; and Safety : All we have to do is hear what God says and believe and receive, And Stand on His word till we have the manifestation. God is not a man that He should lie.

    Christ tells us that none of us are worthy except by grace. I find that remembering that I serve a "hands on God" not just something out there keeps me on track. The Holy Ghost guides us every step and yesterday's sins aren't remembered anymore because Christ as our intercessor has blotted them out. Perfect we are not but forgiven we are. Just keep praising God and reading and learning.

    I do also struggle with felling I'm good enough for Jesus to love me , and truly I have learned
    that's taking away from the Lord what he has suffered and died for and that was for me and until we can except him and believe him we will never fully know him , all we want is to fully know him walk with him and hold his hand intentional and completely
