And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.Exodus 15:26
The Lord has established physical and spiritual healing in His covenant with mankind. The Lord is good. He desires the best for His children. He satisfies us with the finest of the wheat. Sickness is the agency of the devil. He’s the one that comes to kill, steal and destroy. Jesus comes that we might have life and life more abundant in Him. A man once asked Jesus if it is His will to heal him. Jesus responded in the affirmative. I will, be thou clean, He said. God the Father is willing to heal. Jesus is willing to heal. The Holy Spirit is willing to heal. Is it our will to be healed? Because our will is the only thing stopping our healing from taking place.
We have to diligently seek and listen to the Lord if we want to be healed. His Word is life to all our flesh. The seed of the Word must go down deep into our heart and produce faith for healing. We must settle it in our hearts that God’s will is to heal 100% of the time! We need faith, for this is the only way God has prescribed to be healed. So many times Jesus said, “according to your faith be it unto you”. Believe God’s Word. Thank Him for His faithfulness to His Word. Praise God for your healing before you see it manifest. Cease from your own wisdom and ask the Lord for His. He will reveal what He has revealed to multitudes of people who have put their trust in Him.
His name is Jehovah-Rapha. The Lord that heals you. It’s so much a part of His nature to heal that He took it on as a name. Even if we abide faithless, He remains faithful, ever willing to heal you. He cannot deny Himself. The Lord is your protector. The Lord is your provider. Christ is all and in all. All things were made by Him and for Him. It will bring Christ much glory when He heals you of ALL sickness and ALL disease. We must press into the Lord to receive all He has for us. The kingdom of heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force. We can’t afford to accept no for an answer, for all the promises of God in Christ are YES and in Him AMEN!
Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;Psalm 103:1-3
There is blessing from the Lord when we bless the Lord. We must come to God believing that He is the rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. All we can do is believe God and bring forth the fruits of that belief. Do we really trust Him for healing? Then our actions must line up with what we say we believe.
There are many benefits to serving the Lord. The biggest one is eternal life with the Father and His Christ. God wants us to be blessed in this present age as well. He wants us physically healthy and spiritually healthy. His will is that none would perish prematurely. He’s a good Father and Has good gifts for His children. He’s the Lord of ALL good things. He forgives ALL your sins when you ask Him to by faith. He heals ALL your diseases when you ask Him to in Jesus name, by FAITH. Do not be discouraged if you do not get an immediate answer. Keep at it. Be diligent to seek the Lord daily and praise Him for what is already done. Stagger not at the promise of God through unbelief, but be strong in faith, giving glory to God and being fully persuaded that He is able to do what He has promised to do!
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 unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.Proverbs 4:20-22
To be healed it is a matter of hearing God’s Word. Meditating on God’s Word. Memorizing God’s Word. Eating God’s Word daily. Just as physical food is life and energy to our physical bodies, so is God’s Word health and healing to us, both physically and spiritually. We just need to fully digest what God has said before we see the results. God’s Word will accomplish that which He pleases, it just needs time to work in us. Let the seed grow and before you know it you will reap what you have sowed into your heart. God’s Word never fails. Sometimes we fail Him but He is always there, lovingly asking us to get up and believe Him afresh. The Lord is longsuffering with us. He wants us healed and saved more than we desire it for ourselves. Be patient with the Lord. He’s working out a deep and resounding glory in your life.
But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.Malachi 4:2
For those who live righteously and fear God, He has promised healing of all types. It’s up to us to do the seeking, the praying, the humbling of ourselves, the praising of His name. His Word is nourishment to us, physically and spiritually. Let the healing flow freely from the throne of grace to your body. The only thing that can stop the flow is unbelief. God gives no other reason for His failure to do mighty works. Stand on the Word of God, live it, and expect the results to follow! Your faith pleases the Father, long before we receive the answer. God said to Daniel, from the moment your petition was made it was heard in heaven. Sometimes the enemy tries to hinder our prayers and our faith. Be not discouraged, for Christ has destroyed the works of the devil. Submit yourselves to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you.
But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.Romans 8:11
For those of us baptized with the Holy Spirit, we have an extra benefit! We are filled with the same Spirit that quickens and makes alive all things. The same Spirit that was used to create everything we see. The same Spirit that healed multitudes through the faith and Words of Jesus when He was ministering on earth. The resurrection Spirit of God dwells within you! Be encouraged! If He can raise Jesus from the dead, He will also raise you from the dead at the 2nd coming of Jesus. In the meantime, in this life, His will is to heal you and keep you healthy.
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.Hebrews 13:8
The same Jesus Christ that did all those miraculous healings in the Bible is the same Jesus Christ that lives forevermore! He is ruling and reigning from heaven and He has sent back the comforter, the Holy Spirit. The church needs to listen for the Spirit’s voice, because He is longing to direct us in the same healing steps as He did Jesus. God is searching for a people that will believe His healing Words. Will it be you? It can be, for God has dealt to every man and woman the ability of faith. It’s now up to us to exercise faith and to seek the will of the Father, which is LIFE FOREVER!
