God’s Word Is Medicine
The first reason why we are sure it’s God’s will for all to be healed today is found in Proverbs 4:20-22. He said, “My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear,” tune your ear, “to my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life,” His words are life, “unto those that find them, and health,” or the margin says “medicine,” “to all their flesh.”
Reason number one we are sure it’s God’s will for all to be healed today is because God’s Word is medicine.
“Why are you saying that, Brother Keith?” Well, are God’s Words for everyone?
You might say, “It’s not always God’s will for everyone to be healed.” God’s Words will heal you, won’t they? How does God work that, then, if His Words will heal you, and someone is getting a hold of His Words, but it’s not His will for them to be healed? Whoops. Are God’s Words for everyone? Are God’s Words medicine to all your flesh? Then healing has to be for everyone. It would be like coming out with a cure for someone who has a deadly disease, and telling them, “We found a cure! This will heal you! But, don’t take it, because it might not be God’s will for you to be healed.”
If you take it, and it will heal you, and it’s available to you, everyone has enough sense to take it, right? God’s Word is medicine—not just the healing verses, but all of His Word. Man does not live by bread alone but by every Word that comes out of the mouth of God. (Matthew 4:4) What food is to the natural body, God’s Word is to your spirit. Oh friend, get a hold of this now.
Have you been experiencing some symptoms? Then you need to increase your “medicine.” What am I talking about? I’m talking about reading your healing verses, but not just the healing verses. Also read Matthew, and read Ephesians for dessert. I’m serious. Then read some more. Double up on your Word intake. Triple up on your Word intake. Increase it. Why? “They are life to those that find them, and health,” or medicine, “to all their flesh.” If you take enough of God’s Word long enough, it will heal you.
Friend, I exhort you to read the Word. So many Christians do not understand what this is to your spirit. Your mind doesn’t have to understand all of it to get the benefit any more than you have to know the chemical makeup of a piece of cornbread, or the molecular structure of a biscuit, to get any nourishment and strength from it.
You might not have a clue about what’s in that piece of food, but you can eat it, chew it up, and swallow it, and it does something when it gets inside of you. Your body is able to extract all of the nutrients and chemicals, and it will give you strength. It will help you, right? The Word is spirit food. This is healing medicine to all your flesh. Every verse is medicine, including the “begats,” and including descriptions about the Promised Land and land borders and names you can’t pronounce. It’s medicine to all your flesh. That’s why you don’t neglect getting your Bible out and reading. But before you do, say, “Lord, I want to thank You for this Word. It’s life to me. It is medicine to all my flesh, and while I read it, I eat it, and hear it, I’m taking my medicine.”
God’s Word Is Medicine
Then you read it in faith, believing that much more is happening in you than what you understand.
You don’t have to have a clue what’s in a pill or a tablet. You don’t have to know how it works or why. You can just pop it in your mouth and swallow it, and it will start working in you. That’s what this does. Who is this medicine for? How many is this for? To say healing is not for everyone is tantamount to saying that the Word is not for everyone, because His Word will heal you. He sent His Word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction. (Psalm 107:20) The Bible says the multitudes came to hear Him and to be healed by Him of all their diseases, and they heard, and they were. These Words heal. Every Word of God heals. There’s no Word of God that is devoid of power. Everything that comes out of His mouth is rich with light, spiritual nutrition, and life for your flesh. Anytime the Word is preached, anytime the Word is taught, anytime the Word is read, there’s life coming out of it. It has a cumulative effect on you, month after month and year after year. God’s will is that you are attending services, reading the Word every day, and soaking in the Word of God. It’s permeating you. It’s getting in you. It does things to your immune system that will allow you to live another 30 years more than you would have. It’s doing things to your glands; it’s doing things to the marrow of your bones. I’m telling you, I’ve seen it.
I don’t think I’ll ever forget this. Again, it was several years ago in Healing School, in the same little class. A man and his wife came into class. He wasn’t that old, but he was skin and bones, and his breathing was so laborious that you could hear him all over the little room. It was very distracting. Everyone was turning around. He was trying to breathe, and his breathing was so raspy that I thought, as I was trying to preach, Is he going to get that next breath, or is he not going to make it?
You could tell he had been a tall, big, strapping man, but he was down to nothing. I mean, he was just skin and bones.
When the service started, he was leaning over his chair, just trying to breathe. He couldn’t even look at me.
I was teaching that day on this very passage, Proverbs 4. “His Words are life to those who find them and health and medicine to all their flesh.” I preached and taught on it the best I knew how, and then I saw it. I’m telling you, it was one of the most spectacular things I’ve seen. He began to rise up off his lap. First of all, he was looking at me, still breathing hard, but looking at me. Then little by little… after about 30 minutes, 40 minutes, little by little, he was sitting up straight, and not making any sound, looking at me.
At the end of the session, I walked over to him. I could see it all over him. I said, “Hi. I’m glad to have you today.”
He looked at me and said, “I feel good.”
I said, “God’s done something for you. I knew it; that’s why I came back.”
He said, “I feel all tingly inside.”
I said, “You do?”
He said, “Yes. Now I’m hungry.” His wife started crying tears of joy.
What did that to him? He began to eat that Word. The Bible says just like the tongue tastes food, the ear tastes God’s Words. (Job 34:3; Hebrews 6:5) He began to eat these Words that we were reading out of the Bible, and it came on him and got in him. I talked to him for 20 minutes. He hardly knew anything about the Bible. I prayed with him to make sure he was born again. The longer we spoke, the more I realized he was not very knowledgeable about God.
But, I’ll never forget him saying, “Mmmm. It’s all tingly inside.” Glory to God! He said, “Now I’m hungry.”
What did that to him? I’m telling you, it’s doing that to people right now. It’s doing it, and this is just the beginning. You talk about healings my friend, we’re going to have healings. Because it’s the Word of God. When you preach on prayer, you pray. When you preach on tithing, you tithe. When you preach on healing, you have healings.
Say this out loud:
Healing power is at work in me.
The Word of God is life to me.
It is medicine, healing, and health to all my flesh. Healing power is at work in me!
