The Word of God is Alive, Active and Powerful in Healing Scriptures.
Healing scriptures are powerful! God gave His Word to us because it is the answer to sickness and disease. It has the power and authority God gives it to heal us and save us. God wants you to know his Word, believe it, and act on it. If you want to know God and His promises, then you have to know His Word.
‘My people are perishing for lack of knowledge’ Hosea 4:6
Many of us just do not know what God has done for us, what he has promised us, His children.
We don’t know what is ours, because we haven’t read the will (the Bible). When Jesus died, He left everything to us, His heirs. The Bible is God’s will and testament, and most of us haven’t taken the time to read it to find out what God has for us.
- How do we know we are healed if we haven’t read it in His healing scriptures?
- If we haven’t read His Word, how will we know we are forgiven?
- How will we believe we are protected and loved if we don’t read His Word?
- How can we stand on His promises to us if we don’t know what those promises are?
A Powerful Example of Healing Scriptures at Work
Dodie Osteen, Joel Osteen’s mother, was diagnosed with Liver cancer when she was 48 years old. The doctors sent her home to die. There was nothing else they could do for her. There was no treatment; this cancer was fatal.
Her husband, John, prayed for her, and they recited healing scriptures together. They chose that day to believe more in the Word of God, and it’s promises than the doctor’s diagnosis. They decided to stand with faith on God’s Word.
She “stood” on the God’s Word
Dodie stood on the Word which said, ‘By His stripes, you are healed’ from Isaiah 53, and ‘He forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases’ from Psalm 103. Dodie put her Bible on the floor and respectfully, and quite literally, stood on it. She said, from this day forward, I will believe and trust in your Word that says I am healed.
In order to believe and trust God, she had to hear God’s words regarding healing every day. Faith comes from hearing the Word of God (Romans 10:17). She had to drown out the lies speaking to her all day and especially at night.
Jesus never said no to anyone who came to him for healing
Dodie believed the same was true for her. She was putting her faith, not only in God’s Word but in God himself.
Today almost 40 years later, Dodie is healthy and cancer-free and still reads healing scriptures every day.
The Word of God is the Most Powerful Force in the Universe
There is nothing stronger than God’s Word; no weapon, no hurricane, volcano or earthquake, no disease or plague, no drought, and no demons or any spiritual force compares with the Word of God. The Creator of the universe spoke the world into existence. God made everything with just a word. God said, ‘Let there be light, and there was light.’ Creation simply has to obey God’s Word.
God’s Word is indestructible and will last forever
The Bible says that the Word of God is indestructible. Everything in the universe will, one day, corrode and pass away, but the Word of God is eternal, never-ending.
God’s Word is eternal and lasts forever. Invest in a sure thing. It will be the wisest move you ever make. Trust God’s Word, bank on it and lean on it, knowing it is the truth and completely dependable. Imagine if you were an heir of Bill Gates. He is worth almost $100 billion. If you were his child or grandchild and his fortune would one day be yours, you would likely go to sleep every night knowing you were well provided for. You wouldn’t go to bed wondering if you had a place to sleep the next day or food to eat.
This is the confidence God wants you to have in His promise to take care of you. He wants you to know who you are, the child of the Creator of the universe.
My Personal Healing Story
One night my 5-month-old son woke up with a raging fever. He had an ear infection, and when we went to bed that evening, my plan was to wake up in the middle of the night and give him something for the fever. Instead, his crying woke me up, and I panicked because the fever was over 104 degrees. I took him into the tub with me. I was in panic mode, beating myself up for not waking up. My husband sat with me and read Psalm 23, Psalm 25, and Psalm 27 out loud to me. The Word of God washed over me, and I became calm, and my son was fine.
The Word of God is medicine
It’s real medicine, and it has healing power. If you don’t know what to read, download my healing scriptures. And whenever you are sick or in a battle, just read. Let God restore you to health. Let the Word of God reassure you that you are His and He is yours.
God wants to change your life and your situation
He is waiting for you to let him. God wants to change everyone’s life. He does not have favorites. You are just as important to him as any saint in heaven. God wants to heal you just like he wants to heal everyone. There is no one he doesn’t want to heal. He is waiting for you; it is not the other way around. Jesus says, “Come to me all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).
"Take Control of Your Mind and Close the Door to those Negative, Depressing, Fearful, Worrisome Thoughts Forever."
Do you struggle with thoughts of shame or guilt, feeling burdened, lost, and overwhelmed? Maybe you believe you are stuck in a pit and can’t get out, and even worse you believe you deserve to be there.
I understand, because I was once there too! I wrote my book “Your Thoughts are Killing You” in order to share this message—God wants the best for you, and He has the means to get you there!
Jesus, God’s Word Made Flesh
Jesus is the Word of God. Everytime we trust in God’s Word, we are trusting in Jesus. Jesus is the Word of God in the flesh!
Sit tight and let me unfold this for you.
It is so exciting. The Gospel of John in the very opening passages describes Jesus as the Word of God and tells us that everything God created, He created through Jesus. Jesus is literally God’s Word, the Word of God incarnate. The Word of God became a man and dwelt among us. God created everything through His Word. God created everything through Jesus Christ.
There was a man who came to Jesus, asking him to heal his servant who was paralyzed and suffering terribly. Jesus said, ‘I will come and heal him.’ The man, a Roman soldier, said ‘no’; to Jesus. ‘Lord, I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof; only say the word and my servant will be healed.’
This soldier knew of Jesus and the power of His words. He knew that Jesus was God and that he could speak healing into existence. Jesus was amazed at his faith. Read the story in Matthew, chapter 8.
Jesus has authority on earth, and so does His Word.
When Jesus walked on the earth, he commanded the dead to rise, He said to Lazarus, who was in the tomb for four days, ‘Lazarus, come forth.’; Lazarus obeyed and rose from the dead.
Jesus commanded the wind and the waves, and they obeyed him. Everything must obey God’s Words.
You Too Can Speak God’s Word and Heal the Sick
Now here is the most amazing part of this salvation story. Jesus left this earth and gave us His authority. Jesus gave His children His name, His Word, and His Spirit. He gave us authority and commands us to go into all the world and do what he did. He gave us the same power to speak. He gave us the power to speak to mountains and to command evil spirits.
Say to that mountain, cancer, or that mountain, depression, or that mountain of fear and tell it to get up and go throw itself into the sea. Say it. Jesus said if you believe what you say will happen, it will happen just as you say it will. Say to the cold or flu or allergies, leave me in the name of Jesus. It takes time and practice, but until you are confident, commanding sickness and disease to leave you, read God’s Word out loud. Read it aloud, so the devil hears you.
The devil hates to hear God’s words coming out of your mouth, so go ahead and read God’s words out loud and give the devil some grief.
Healing scriptures spoken by you declare your faith in the Word of God, your faith in Jesus Christ. Think of the Word of God as a weapon aimed directly at the devil or disease.
Aim and fire.
The Word of God is an offensive weapon against the devil.
