Believe the Word
Believe the Word for yourself. If
you are sick, find scriptures on
healing and put them before your eyes, in your ears, on your mouth, and
deposit them in your heart. If you do this consistently on a daily
basis, you will get the benefit of healing.
If you allow yourself to be
consumed with the Word, have faith in the Word - By His Stripes I was
healed, and act on the Word, you will be healed. When Jairus was told
not to trouble the Master any more because his daughter had died. Jesus
looked in Jairus direction and said "Only Believe" You must believe in
order to receive whatever it is you're after (Mark 11:24).
It's not a good idea to claim to be
healed By his Stripes if you don't believe what you are confessing and
praying. If you can become saved just by believing in your heart and
confessing with your mouth that Jesus is Lord (Romans 10:9), then
surely you can be healed from sickness and disease By His Stripes.
God has already made it possible
for you to receive the things His Word says you can have. Not only can
you have what you believe in your heart concerning healing, you can
also receive the manifestation of it.
"Giving thanks unto the Father,
which hath made us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in
light ... " (Colossians 1:12). The definition according to Strong's
Exhaustive Concordance, is "to enable, qualify, and make able."
God has already made you a partaker
of the inheritance of healing. Therefore, you are able to receive what
God has to offer in His Word. Acts 20:32 says, "And now, brethren, I
commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to
build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are
Not only are you able to receive
your inheritance, but according to this Scripture, the Word is able to
give you your inheritance. Through the Word of God, you can receive
healing, because God has equipped His Word to do that for you.
The New International Version of the
Bible says in Psalm 107:20, "He sent his word and healed them; he
rescued them from the grave. " People look at this and ask, "How is the
Word able to heal me?"
God's Word is medicine (proverbs
4:22), and if you will take it and receive what it has enabled you to
receive, you will have your inheritance. Putting the Word of God before
your eyes, in your ears, on your mouth, and in your heart will produce
However, if you accept the doctor's
report when he says you're going to die, and let that take root in your
heart instead, you'll end up dying and having a nice funeral when you
could have lived 20, 50, or maybe even 60 more years!
The Word of God is equipped to give
you what you need. That includes healing! As Christians, we've got to
stop dying so soon. It's not the will of the Father. When you die
early, you leave your assignment incomplete.
You leave what you have been born to
do unfinished. God has equipped you to fight sickness and disease. You
don't have to put up with it, unless you choose to be in poor health.
You can get in the Word and make things happen when the doctor says
healing is impossible.
If I could find one person who
would be diligent-someone who wanted a miracle, someone who would use
the Word to strengthen himself to get up and walk-it would surely bless
my soul. You've got the Word.
All you have to do is treat it as a
seed. Put it in the soil of your heart and watch it produce a harvest
of healing. It can't fail! Now, you can't put it in every now and then
and expect results. Anything you get from the Word will come as a
result of your persistence.
You have to give up television,
friends, even family for a while. Lock yourself up in a room and got
busy making confessions from God’s: Word concerning my healing.
It will be just you, the Word, and
in that room. That's all you need.
When you are serious about being
delivered, you will do whatever it takes. Let people call you "crazy"
if they want. But when you come out of your time of consecration,
you'll have a testimony that God's Word works that will go against what
the doctor has said.
Our lives should reflect that the
Word of God works and that we're not just wasting our time when we
quote scriptures out loud. We've got to let the Word take root in our
hearts. Some Christians will never know whether the Word works, because
to them the Bible is just another book.
However, it's so much more than
that, Child of God! It is the only book that can get inside of you and
produce the God-kind of results. Glory to God! You've got to get
serious about this Word and believe that it will do exactly what it
says, down to the last sentence.
I believe the Word works and I am
going to continue to believe it. I don't care what happens in the
physical or natural realm. As far as the world is concerned, I don't
care what I see with my eyes or hear with my ears.
I will, however, always be careful
about what comes out of my mouth, making sure that it lines up with
what God says. No matter what happens, I will believe the Word. If your
healing has been hindered, it may be because you've allowed information
from the world to cause you to doubt the truth of God's Word.
I don't care if you have a headache
right now. The fact may be that you have a headache, but the truth of
God's Word says by the stripes of Jesus you are already healed! (Isaiah
53:5; 1 Peter 2:24).
I tell you the Word is true-it is
the remedy for everything. Many people have tried to convince me
otherwise, to no avail. It's too late to try and tell me it doesn't
work, because the Word has been good to me.
It has comforted me when I was
lonely, fed me when I was hungry, and paid my bills when I didn't have
enough money. I like what the old folks say: ''I'm wrapped up, tied up,
fangled up in Jesus, and the world can't do me no harm!"
