Harold J. Sala Says Yes in When You Need Healing
“Where is God in my need, my pain, and my need for healing in my broken life?” It’s a question that Harold Sala is familiar with as he encounters believers and seekers through venues such as his ministry Guidelines International, Inc. Sala, founder and president of the ministry which is dedicated to communicating the ministry of Christ, also hosts the “Guidelines” radio commentary which is heard on over 1000 radio stations worldwide, as well as translated into more than 15 languages.
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 When You Need 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, When You Need Healing is for individuals, pastors, and churches, including caregivers and other health professionals.
