We all need healing at some point in life. Maybe we need physical healing for some form of a common sickness like sinus problems, headaches, or a stomach virus. Sometimes the more dangerous and deadly diseases cause us to seek God for healing for ourselves or for someone we love.
Physical healing is a big deal for sure, but there are other forms of healing we can need. We can need emotional or mental healing from heart wounds or word wounds. Relationships sometimes experience damage that only God’s healing can fix, and of course there is spiritual healing that can only come from the Lord Jesus Christ.
The one thing I am sure of is, the Bible, or God’s word, is filled with stories of healing and Scripture verses based on God’s healing. I believe that God’s word is truth and one thing that I always think about when I think about truth is that truth happens. In other words I believe that what God says in His word happens.
“Praise be to the LORD, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses.
1 Kings 8:56
My son, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body. Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
The LORD said to me, “You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled.”
So do you need healing?
Trust in what God says when you need healing.
Pray what God says when you need healing.
Believe what God says!
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Here are Scriptures you can use when praying and seeking God when you need healing.
