Your faith in God can… and will crush every ounce of pain in your body if you allow it to work, whether back, neck, shoulder, or any other physical pain in your body. Like medicine, God’s words can heal you.
My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. 21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. 22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. 23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.Proverbs 4:21-23
Sure, pain, especially back pain is a common ailment that affects millions of people worldwide and it can be caused by various factors, such as poor posture, injury, or underlying medical conditions. But you don’t have to continue living with it, there is hope for you in the scriptures.
The Bible contains many healing scriptures that can bring comfort and relief to your body and soul.
Throughout the Bible, there are numerous examples of God’s healing power at work, bringing healing to those who seek it with faith and belief.
Take, for example, the story of the woman with the issue of blood in Mark 5:25-34. This woman had suffered for years and spent all her money on physicians, but none could heal her.
However, when she heard about Jesus and touched the hem of his garment, she was immediately healed. Jesus told her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace and be healed of your affliction.”
Another example is the story of the paralytic man in Mark 2:1-12. His friends brought him to Jesus for healing, but the crowd was so large that they had to lower him through the roof.
When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the man, “Son, your sins are forgiven you.” Then he told the man to get up, pick up his bed, and walk, and the man was immediately healed.
These stories, and many others like them, demonstrate the power of faith and belief in God’s healing power.
As you read through these healing scriptures for back pain, I encourage you to have faith and trust that God can bring healing and relief to your body and soul.
What does the Bible says about pain?
Show me someone who has never experienced pain and I will show you someone who wasn’t born on planet Earth.
As long we continue to live on planet Earth pain will stay with us, no matter who we are and what we believe, pain will come to us at some point in our lives, be physical, emotional, or spiritual, the pain will come.
There’s no running away from pain, even Jesus Christ experienced it, and I dare say, he felt it more than anyone will ever know.
Moreover, according to the Bible, pain is a consequence of sin and the fallen nature of humanity, if Adam and Eve had not disobeyed God by giving in to Satan’s scheme, we would have been living without pain on the Earth.
But this thing called pain isn’t going anywhere soon, we invited it in, and now we have to live with it because it doesn’t want to go, it prefers to stay and torment us.
In Genesis 2:16-17, God told Adam not to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, but Adam couldn’t care less, he along with his wife Eve chose their lust rather than to obey God, “kinda” like what many Christians do in their walk with God, choose self over God.
“And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”Genesis 2:16-17
Consequently, in Genesis 3:16-19, God tells Adam and Eve that they will experience pain and suffering as a result of their disobedience.
That said, though “pain” came into this world because of sin, it is not always a punishment for sin.
For example, in John 9:1-3, Jesus encounters a man who was born blind, and his disciples ask if the man’s blindness was caused by his own sin or his parent’s sin.
Jesus responds that neither the man nor his parents sinned, but rather the man’s blindness was an opportunity for God’s work to be displayed in him.
This passage shows that pain can also serve a purpose in God’s plan (a slap in Satan’s face 😐, shame on the devil).
That said, the Bible encourages us to bring our pain and struggles to God in prayer.
Psalm 34:18 says, “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Similarly, Psalm 147:3 states, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” These verses remind us that God is present in our pain and offers comfort and healing.
So what does this all means for you?
There’s hope, the pain you are feeling right now came as a result of sin; not that you have committed a particular sin, and even if you have committed a sin causing your back pain, there’s hope in God’s words.
The Bible encourages us to bring our pain to God and trust in His ability to heal and comfort us.

The Importance of Faith to Heal Back Pain
Faith plays a crucial role in healing. Let’s reuse the story of the woman suffering for twelve long years with bleeding problems.
According to the Bible, in Mark 5:34, Jesus tells a woman “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” This verse shows that faith in Jesus’ healing power was instrumental in the woman’s recovery.
Similarly, in James 5:15, the Bible states, “And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up.” This verse also emphasizes that faith in God’s power and willingness to heal is essential to get your healing.
Furthermore, Hebrews 11:6 states that “without faith, it is impossible to please God.” This verse teaches us that we cannot have a relationship with God, and thus implies that faith is required to access God’s healing power.
The Role of Forgiveness in Healing
Forgiveness plays a crucial role in the process of healing, not just in a spiritual sense, but also in a physical and emotional sense.
The Bible teaches that forgiveness is essential for true healing to occur, both for the person who needs healing and for the person who needs to forgive.
One of the most famous examples of forgiveness in the Bible is the story of Joseph and his brothers.
Joseph’s brothers sold him into slavery out of jealousy and spite, but years later, Joseph forgave them and was able to reconcile with them. This forgiveness brought healing and restoration to Joseph and his family.
Similarly, Jesus taught the importance of forgiveness in many of his teachings, including the Lord’s Prayer, where he instructs his followers to forgive others so that they can be forgiven themselves.
Jesus also forgave those who crucified him, demonstrating the power of forgiveness in the face of pain and suffering.
Forgiveness is essential for healing because it releases us from the negative emotions and resentment that can cause physical and emotional pain.
When we forgive others, we open ourselves up to God’s healing power, which can restore us physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
In summary, the Bible teaches that forgiveness is essential for healing. It frees us from negative emotions and allows us to experience God’s healing power.
As we seek healing, we must also seek to forgive others, just as we have been forgiven by God.
