There are two things I constantly receive prayer requests for.
One is finances, the other is healing.
I believe the answer to both of these issues is found in the word of God. Today, I want to look at a scripture concerning healing.
It is found in Proverbs 4:20-22.
My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.
In the Amplified Bible, verse 22 says this; For they are life to those who find them, and healing and health to all their flesh.
The word life in this scripture is defined as; alive, strong, living thing, and maintenance.
The word health is defined as; curative, literally a medicine, a cure, deliverance, healing, remedy, and yielding.
Are you in need of healing today in your body? Are you in need of strength? If so, the answer is found in the word of God.
Sadly, many do not partake of this medicine.
If a doctor came to you and told you he had a pill that would cause you to be cured, would you take it? What if he told you that you had to take it until it fully saturated your body? Would you take it as prescribed? Of course, you would!
God’s word says this very thing! He says there is LIFE in His word. He says it will bring life to your body. All you need to do is get His word in your heart and keep it there.
Recently I have heard testimony after testimony of people who have been healed simply by meditating in the word of God.
Joshua 1:8 says; This book of the Law must not depart from your mouth; meditate in it day and night, so that you may carefully observe everything written in it. For then you will prosper and succeed in all you do.
You will succeed in everything if you only keep the word of God first place in your life.
Do you need success in healing? Mediate on the word of God, day and night. Do you need success in your finances? Again, mediate on the word of God concerning finances. God has made the way for you to succeed in whatever you lay your hands to…the way is the word of God.
Romans 8:11 says; But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
Do you get what this verse is saying to us? The Spirit that caused LIFE to come into the body of Jesus…who had died…lives in you! It quickens/ releases that same life-giving force in you and gives life to your mortal body. That is powerful stuff my friend.
It’s time we remember the power in the word of God. It’s time we apply the power of that word to our flesh, to our bodies. For it is time for us to walk in and experience divine health. This only comes from God and His word. This comes from keeping His word before our eyes and in our heart. It comes from being so full of the word of God that it comes out our mouth each time we speak. When you get that full of the word of God, you will find healing. How do I know? His word says so.
His word, today, is alive and full of power – allow that power to work in you.
Meditate on this:
For the word of God is alive and active. Hebrews 4:12
