You Can Be Healed!
God is a Healer. It is His nature to heal. He has revealed Himself as "I am the Lord Who Heals" (Exodus 15:26).
It is as natural and easy for God to heal as it is for you to breathe.
When Jesus walked the earth, He perfectly represented the will of God. He spent a large part of His time healing the sick.
ACTS 10:38 NKJ
38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.
LUKE 4:40 NKJ
40 Now when the sun was setting, all those who had anyone sick with various diseases brought them to Him; and He laid His hands on every one of them and healed them.
Fortunately, Jesus has not changed. Although He is not here on earth physically now, He made provision for you to be healed through His Word and His Name.
HEBREWS 13:8 NKJ
8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
HEALING IS YOURS
Because of the sacrifice of Jesus to redeem you, healing is already yours. He paid the price for you to have it -- now you must receive it by faith.
1 PETER 2:24 NKJ
24 who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness by whose stripes you were healed.
HOW TO RECEIVE
There are three main ways you can receive God's supernatural healing. He works through many methods. Remember that God is the Healer, not the method by which you receive.
1. Have Someone Minister To You.
MARK 16:17-18 NKJ
17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;
18 . . . they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.
JAMES 5:14-15 NKJ
14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.
15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
2. Pray For Yourself.
MARK 11:23-24 NKJ
23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, `Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will come to pass, he will have whatever he says.
24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
3. Take God's Word As A Medicine.
PSALM 107:20 NKJ
20 He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions.
PROVERBS 4:20-22 NKJ
20 My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings.
21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart;
22 For they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.
The primary way to take God's Word as a medicine is to speak it. You can also take it by listening to it.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
You receive from God by faith. That means you must believe what God says.
MARK 9:23 NKJ
23 Jesus said to him, If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.
MATTHEW 8:13 NKJ
13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you. And his servant was healed that same hour.
JOHN 8:31-32 NKJ
31 Then Jesus said . . . , "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.
32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
If you are having trouble believing, feed on God's Word, which will cause your faith to grow. You can also request someone else to pray for you whose faith is already strong.
However you receive your healing, continue to feed on God's Word. The devil may try to steal your healing, but if you keep your faith strong by feeding on the Word, you will be able to resist him and keep your healing.
Even if you pray for yourself, you need other members of the Body of Christ who can encourage you. We are here to love you and help you. Please call on us.
Sample Healing Prayer
Jesus is Lord. God raised Him from the dead, victorious over satan, sin, and sickness. There is healing in the Name of Jesus. So, sickness and disease, I command you to leave my body now, in the Name of Jesus. Leave me alone satan. Jesus is my Lord. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I receive healing for my body, and I declare in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I am now well. I believe I receive my healing, in the Name of Jesus.
