Health and Healing
Abiding in the Healing Word
Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases.
O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
He will keep you safe from all hidden dangers and from all deadly diseases.
Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the Most High, thy habitation; there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope.
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
...by whose stripes ye were healed.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
...[Jesus] healed all that were sick: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: and the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
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.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him.... With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation.
Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies. The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.
The LORD will sustain him on his sickbed and restore him from his bed of illness.
...and as many as touched him [Jesus] were made whole.
He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise.
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.
Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works.... And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil.
...and great multitudes followed him [Jesus], and he healed them all.
And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all them that hate thee.
The following Scripture verses do not directly speak of healing, but can be used with confidence in relation to your need for healing:
...for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things unto them that ask him?
...Is my hand shortened at all that it cannot redeem? or have I no power to deliver? behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea....
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and for ever.
