1 Peter 2:24
God’s Creative Power for Healing
“God’s Word Is Medicine
God’s Word is spoken of in Proverbs 4:22 as being medicine to all our flesh. It is the most powerful medicine available today, and it is capable of healing your body without side effects.
Psalm 107:20 tells us that God sent His Word and healed…According to Isaiah 53:5,6 and 1 Peter 2:24, healing is a fact as far as God is concerned. It belongs to us because healing was in the atonement. (Isa. 53:5,6.)
Our confession of the Word of God calls for healing which is already ours but is not in manifestation in our bodies.
“No, I am not teaching against doctors or medicine. But don’t depend on doctors or medicine alone to keep you healthy. There are some diseases that medical science cannot cure. But, if you need a doctor, see a doctor. Many lives are saved every year through medical help. There are medicines today that are beneficial in aiding the body’s healing process.
If you are taking medicine, mix faith with it by saying, “I believe I receive my healing in Jesus’ Name.” Man’s medicines will not heal you, and generally will not keep you from being healed. Yet there are some medicines today that have so many side effects they seem to be worse than the disease. So ask some questions and find out what you are taking.
Most medicine will help hold down the symptoms while you are applying God’s principles concerning healing and health.”
“I don’t advocate that you throw your medicine away and rely on confession alone unless the Lord directs you to do so. It takes time to renew your mind and develop faith in your words as well as God’s Word. But the things you are continually confessing eventually become a part of you. It is true, God has provided healing for us through His Word. But we must learn to appropriate that healing by making the Word a part of our daily vocabulary.
I believe by being taught properly and by practicing your faith you can grow to a point where it will be a common thing for you to receive healing through the Word of God.
But it doesn’t happen overnight.
It takes time to develop your faith, so if you have a life or death situation where the doctors say if you don’t have an operation immediately you will die – in other words, the disease has a head start on your faith – my advice would be to have the operation and believe God for a quick recovery. Use some common sense and don’t do foolish things through spiritual pride and call it faith.
It takes time to develop faith to operate in these principles, so don’t let anyone put you under condemnation for going to doctors or having an operation.
In other words, operate on your level of faith, but don’t stay on that level forever.
Continue in God’s Word until you develop faith in the healing power of God’s Word.
God’s Word is creative power. The worlds were framed by the Word of God. Confessing the Word of God can also change your world. It can change an image of sickness into an image of healing and health.
Operating in these principles is not easy. It takes discipline and commitment. It’s not good enough to just read these confessions. I encourage you to confess the Word audibly over your body two or three times a day. Confess it with authority. It is not necessary for you to make these confessions before other people, for the words you speak are for your benefit.
Bad News and God’s News
Doctors may have told you there is no hope for you medically, but you can always find supernatural HOPE from God’s Word:
…they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses. He sent his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I send it.
I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the Lord; and I will heal him.
Returning God’s Word to Him
God declares that His Word will not return to Him void. We are to return His Word by giving VOICE TO IT, and He will create the fruit of our lips. Confessing God’s Word is a way you can fellowship with the Lord and increase your faith at the same time.
I challenge you to affirm these scriptural confessions audibly three times a day.
Don’t let it become a hit and miss proposition.
Make it a practice to take God’s medicine on a regular basis, just as you would any other medicine.
Then it will be LIFE to you and HEALTH to your flesh.”
