Good news! God wants you well! Healing is ALWAYS His will for you and the Bible backs it up! 💪🏼
Many people simply accept sickness and disease in their bodies because they base what they believe about healing on someone else’s experience or on teaching that doesn’t line up with God’s Word. 📖
And sadly, it’s these “traditions of men” that make the truth of God’s Word ineffective in our lives (Mark 7:13). 😕
Let’s look at some common “traditions of men”:
🚫 Tradition – If it was God’s will for me to be healed, He’d heal me.
📖 Truth – God’s will is found in His Word. He doesn’t have a will apart from His Word. God’s Word says that He desires ABOVE ALL THINGS that we be in health. He sent Jesus to take every sickness and disease and by His stripes we WERE healed. God has already provided healing for us, but God cannot force our choices. Just like people have to choose to receive salvation, we have to choose to receive healing by faith. God’s not picking and choosing who gets healed – it’s readily available for those who BELIEVE and RECEIVE. (3 John 1:2, 1 Peter 2:24, Mark 11:24)
Even the original Greek word for “saved/salvation” – “Sozo”, means “HEALED, delivered, protected and preserved”, and God desires that ALL men be SAVED (sozo) and come to the knowledge of this truth! (1 Timothy 2:4) 🙏🏼
🚫 Tradition – God “uses” sickness to teach and correct us.
📖 Truth – God uses His Word and the Holy Spirit to teach us and correct us. (2 Timothy 3:16, John 16:13)
🚫 Tradition – God “allows” sickness to come on us.
📖 Truth – God gave us dominion over everything in this earth, including our bodies. (Genesis 1:26-28) Anything that’s stealing, killing or destroying in our bodies is from the devil – the thief. (John 10:10). God has given US authority and dominion over the devil, but it’s up to us to use that authority! He can’t force us to. (Luke 10:19)
🚫 Tradition – The Lord gives and the Lord takes away.
📖 Truth – God didn’t say that, Job did, and it was said in his state of grief. Job blamed God for his tragedy like many still do, but it’s not God’s nature to take life.
If He did, it would make Him a murderer, a liar and an imposter because His very name is “Jehovah Rapha”, “the God who heals”. God was not only with Job throughout his whole ordeal, He restored to Job seven times what the DEVIL stole from him. (Exodus 15:26, Job 42)
🚫 Tradition – But what about Paul’s thorn?
📖 Truth – Firstly, nowhere does the Bible say the thorn was sickness. Secondly it DOES say it was a messenger of Satan (2 Corinthians 12:7). Thirdly, Paul had the same words of Jesus, Authority, Holy Spirit and power that we have (God’s Grace) which is why God said, “PAUL! My GRACE is sufficient!“ God couldn’t do anything about the thorn because He had already given Paul – just like He’s given us – everything He could so that PAUL could do something about it!
🚫 Tradition – Yes it’s God’s will that I’m healed, but He will heal me in His timing.
📖 Truth – By the stripes of Jesus stripes you WERE healed. If you WERE healed then healing isn’t coming, and it’s not dependent on God’s timing. You IS, ARE, AM healed, right now. NOW is the time of God’s favour – TODAY is the day of salvation! (2 Peter 2:24, 2 Corinthians 6:2)
Hosea 4:6 says that God’s people perish (suffer, are destroyed) because of “lack of knowledge”. Not lack of faith, but a lack of knowledge of the true nature of God and what His will is concerning healing. 😔
When Jesus was on the earth He healed them ALL – and Jesus said that if we’ve seen Him, we’ve seen the Father. Jesus never said “no” to healing anyone – neither does God. (John 14:9) ❤️
In fact, Jesus’ entire purpose for coming was so that you could have and enjoy life – in abundance, to the full, until it overflows! (John 10:10) ❤️
Ok then, if God wants me well, how do I get well? 🤷🏼♂️🤷🏻♀️
🌱 Go to God’s Word and find scriptures that promise you that you’re healed. Speak them aloud, every day, and plant that Word-seed in the ground of your heart. Not only are you renewing your mind to the fact you ARE healed, but that Word-seed WILL grow and bear a harvest of healing! (Romans 12:2, Mark 4)
💊God has given us His Word, which is LIFE to us and HEALTH to our flesh. When we speak the Word regularly it acts on our bodies like a medicine, healing and restoring (Proverbs 4:22). Speak the Word over your body!
🗣 Jesus told us to speak to the mountain (problem = sickness/disease) and has to obey us (Mark 11:23). Speak TO that mountain of sickness, disease or pain and tell it to go in Jesus’ name!
🤭 Guard your mouth and ONLY say what God says about your healing. James 1:26 warns us that we can think we’re doing everything right, but if we don’t bridle our tongues (from talking about the problem) it causes our faith to become ineffective and “useless”.
People can say what they want – don’t ever be talked out of your healing by traditions of men or wrong beliefs about God. 🙅🏼♀️🙅🏻
God’s got an amazing purpose for you to fulfil here on this earth and He wants you to live long, strong and until you are fully satisfied, because He LOVES you! (Jeremiah 29:11, Psalm 91:16). 🥰
God wants you well! 🙌🏼💪🏼 #faithtalks
