Healing is Already Yours!
Updated: Jun 14, 2021
There was a time when I thought that I had a bigger part to play in getting my healing. Before I learned that healing is a gift already given to me through Christ. I guess that was God's way of helping to renew my mind. My unbelief kept my healing from me. I don't want anyone to think there is a "formula" to get what Christ died to give us.
With that said, here is a "Healing Tool" that Tim and I used to his healing in the scariest part of our journey together so far. I believe this came off of Joyce Meyer's website, and has several pages of healing scriptures. It was years ago, and she has since updated her material. At the time, I just googled "healing scriptures", and found this post to be the most helpful.
Tim had a lung collapse twelve years ago, and I battled with fibromyalgia and depression over the years. Tim had 20% lung capacity then, and has 80% now. I was on many prescription medications over the years, and was able to stop them all. The devil is a liar, and you were given the gift of healing at the cross. Use God's Word to renew your mind, and believe and receive what Christ died to give you! Enjoy!
Proverbs 4:20-22 says, "My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. FOR THEY ARE LIFE TO THOSE WHO FIND THEM, AND HEALTH TO ALL THEIR FLESH."
The Hebrew word for "health" in verse 22 is "medicine". God's Word is medicine to all our flesh. Isaac Leeser's translation of Exodus 15:26 reads, "I the Lord am thy physician." The medicine He prescribes in His Word.
Many make the mistake of substituting belief in healing for the actual taking of God's medicine, His Word. They say, "I believe in healing" without actually taking the medicine. What good would it do to believe in food if you didn't eat it? You would starve. What good would it do you to believe in water if you didn;t actually drink any? You would die of thirst.
God's Word is His MEDICINE. There are several parallels between God's medicine and natural medicine. First, God's Word is a healing agent just as natural medicine is a healing agent or catalyst. In other words, the medicine itself contains the capacity to produce healing. God's Word contains inherent within it the capacity--the energy, the ability, and the nature to effect healing in your body.
Psalm 107:20 He sent His Word,and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction
Proverbs 4:22 For they (His Words) are life to those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
Isaiah 55:10 The Word of God will accomplish what it was sent out to do.
The Word itself contains the power to produce what it says, just as when God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. Healing Scriptures contain within them the capacity to produce healing.
Hebrews 4:12 The Word of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing assunder of soul and spirit.
THE KEY to partaking of the life and healing energy in the Word is FEEDING ON IT until it penetrates your Spirit where it deposits that life and energy.
Secondly, we might say that medicine is no respector of persons. It will work for anyone who takes it. It is not a matter of God willing or not willing to heal any individual, but whether or not the individual will RECEIVE healing by TAKING THE MEDICINE that produces it.
Thirdly, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, medicine must be taken according to the directions to be effective. Some medicine labels read, "Take internally"; or others say "Take externally." To rub it on your body externally when the directions say to take it internally will not work. To take it after meals when the directions say take it before meals will reduce its effectiveness. To take it once in a while when the directions say three times a day will mean limited results, if any. NO MATTER HOW GOOD THE MEDICINE IS, it must be taken according to the directions, or it won't work. So it is with God's medicine. It must be taken according to the directions to work. The directions for taking God's medicine are found in:
Proverbs 4:20,21 Attend to them, incline your ear to them, don't let them depart from before your eyes, and keep them in the midst of your heart.
You might say attending to them, inclining your ear to them, and keeping them before your eyes causes them to get in the midst of your heart. Notice this--it is only as they get in the midst of your heart and stay there that they produce healing in your body. Head knowledge won't do. They are going to have to penetrate to your spirit through attending, hearing, looking, muttering and pondering to produce healing in your body. But once they do penetrate, they will SURELY bring health to all your flesh.
Get a list of healing scriptures and feed on them several times a day. Repeat them over and over again to yourself. The medicine itself will work if it will get inside you.
Fourthly, remember that it takes time for medicine to work. Most people give natural medicine a lot of time and patience and money to work. They take the prescription back for refills and more refills. They are diligent about it. They don't just take one dose and expect a miracle. Keep taking God's medicine. Give it time to work.
Now take your medicine! Say healing scriptures to yourself. Think on what you are saying in your heart. Use them in praise to the Father. His Word is medicine to all your flesh.
