I love how Joyce Meyer’s uses the phrase, “God wants to heal you everywhere you hurt”. 

God’s Word heals us no matter where we hurt, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Exodus 15:26 says, “…For I am the Lord who heals you.”

There is no greater love than a Heavenly Father who would send His only begotten Son to save us!  John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

It gets better. John the Baptist introduces Jesus as “The Word” in John Chapter 1.  John 1:1 (NIV) reads, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”  Jesus is the Word.

John 1:14 (NIV) says, The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

The Word of God heals and restores us! The Word of God promises salvation, eternal life, righteousness, redemption, deliverance, protection, prosperity, healing and wholeness of spirit, soul and body so that we may have abundant life.

I want to share with you a bit of my background. I was baptized at the age of six, but started my journey of faith twenty-one years ago at a time where I felt there was no hope in a failing marriage. But God had a different plan for me. I joined a local ministry where I begin to set under the Word of Faith. I was so captivated by the Word that I begin to diligently study it day and night.

How does God’s Word heal us?

God’s Word is a healing agent, just as natural medicine is a healing agent or catalyst. In other words, the medicine itself contains the capacity to produce healing. Inherent within God’s Word is the capacity, the energy, the ability, and the nature to affect healing not just in your body, but your spirit, your mind…God’s Word is full of life!

The Bible says in Psalm 107:20 English Standard Version (ESV) He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction.

The Word of God heals us and changes us. But it requires that old habits, mindsets, and motivations that are contradictory to His Kingdom be rooted out. As we meditate on His word day and night, the Word will begin to root out, pull down, and overthrow destroy our old way of thinking, so that He can begin to build, and to plant. Jeremiah 4:3 says, plow up “Plow up the hard ground of your hearts!

God commands in The Book of Joshua 1:8 New Living Translation (NLT) to, study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. .  As I began to meditate on His Word, the Word began to uproot the hardness that had formed in my heart because of circumstances… Every time I spend time with Him in His presence my life changes!  When I cry out to Him he listens and heals me wherever I man be hurting.

In Psalm 1:1-3 David wrote that the person who meditates on the Word day and night will become firmly planted like a tree, and that everything he does will prosper.

Proverbs 4:20-22 New Living Translation (NLT) says, My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to my words. Don’t lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart, for they bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body.

Paying attention, listening, and keeping the Word before your eyes causes it to get into your heart.  It is only as God’s Words get in the midst of your heart and stay there that they produce healing.

The Word has to penetrate to your spirit through meditation – attending, hearing, looking, muttering, musing, and pondering – to produce healing.  The Living Bible says … let them penetrate deep within your heart. (Living Bible)

The Word itself contains the power to produce what it says. Just as when God said, “Let there be light” and there was light, the Scriptures contain within them the capacity to produce healing.

The Word of God will accomplish what it was sent out to do.

Isaiah 55:11 New International Version (NIV)

“..so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”

In Jeremiah 1:12, God says, “I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled."

Confession:

God is speaking to me now, saying, “I am the Lord that healeth thee.” He is watching over this Word to perform it. He is the Lord that healeth me. He is healing me now. This Word contains the ability to produce what it says. He is the Lord that healeth me. He is healing me now. His Word is full of healing power. I receive this Word now. I receive the healing that is in His Word now.

Today, many of you have made known your petitions to God.   Remember there is power in the blood! If you believe that, I urge you to draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith as an act of worship knowing that He is faith and just to fulfill His promises.
