I ask you, “What’s better than divine healing?” Divine health! The reason is that in order to receive divine healing, you have to have first been sick or infirm in some way. However, to “not get sick” is far better!
Too many times, in fact, most of the time, we’re playing “catch up” with the devil and his evil ways. Just look at the plethora of hospitals, clinics, emergi-care facilities, etc. that have sprung up all over the USA. Why? Because so many people are sick! And many of them are Christians! This is not a good testimony.
So what do we do? Good question. And as always, God has already provided the answer before we ever had the problem.
The redemptive plan of God through Jesus was two-fold – remission of sins forever and always, and healing for our bodies forever and always. But, as you know, everything from God has to be received by faith. No promise of God is automatic.
We need to take our “gos-pills” every day. Ps. 91 isn’t just for times of crisis. It’s to be ingrained in us to ward off every attack of the enemy, namely sickness and disease in this case.
Isa 54:17 is another good scripture to incorporate into your stand of faith because it’s not only important what you say, but what you hear others say. Don’t get in agreement with negative reports or fake news. Take you faith stand against the “words” of the enemy. Stand your ground on God’s Word in faith.
Prov. 4:20-23 .Vs 22 says the Word of God is health to all your flesh which means medicine to all your flesh.
Deut. 28 – We’re redeemed to the blessing and blessing of God and redeemed from the curses of the Law.
And of course, Mark 11:23-24.
We need to confess God’s Word until we get it into our spirit where we truly believe it with all our being. However, this doesn’t negate the need for good nutrition and all the other physical things we can do to get and stay healthy. We still have a flesh body that we are responsible to take care of but not to the exclusion of the spiritual side. We are first and foremost, spirit beings in a flesh body and we have a soul – our mind, will, and emotions.
Brothers and sisters, God has already provided for us to be in good health but to be able to get healed if need be. But, it’s now up to us to get into His Word and fortify ourselves by developing our faith, be the victorious people He’s called us to be, and be a blessing to those around us!
Hebrews 11:6 (KJV) 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Romans 12:2-3 (KJV) 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
Proverbs 4:20-23 (KJV) 20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
3 John 1:2 (KJV) 2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
Galatians 3:13 (KJV)
13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
Isaiah 54:17 (KJV) 17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
1 Peter 2:24 (KJV) 24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
Matthew 8:17 (KJV) 17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
Isaiah 53:4-5 (KJV) 4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Mark 11:22-24 (KJV) 22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
