No matter how much pain you feel, what the doctors said, or the devil is trying, God has not given up on you, infact, God said in 1 Peter 2:24 that you are already healed.
Nevertheless, there are four fundamental truths about healing that every believer or anyone who desires to be healed should know. There are as follows:
1. Healing is available to everyone.
2. God says that you are healed.
3. Faith is necessary to initiate and receive healing.
4. Walk in your healing because you can lose it.
Let’s look each key in more detail:
It’s God’s Will that you be healed.
One common roadblock to healing is that some people (even believers of the faith) aren’t sure that it’s God’s will that they are healed.
Notice that I said, “God’s will that you be healed” and not “God’s will to heal.” There is a difference.
It’s God’s will to heal means that he is going (in the future) to heal you.
But God’s will that you are healed means that he has healed you and it only needs to manifest in your mortal body, or in whatever area you want it to find expression.
God has healed you
Where two or three witnesses are present, every word shall be justified.
In this case, where two or more scriptures are saying the same thing about healing confirms that God means what he says about “you are healed.” The scriptures are as follows:
You are healed, praise God, thank you, Jesus. God said it, and that settles it.
Your faith in Jesus Christ is fundamental for healing
Your faith in God’s word is the foundation for your healing.
To pursue healing you will need to start with faith and end with faith.
There’s no other way to God’s healing, faith is the foundation that holds everything together.
Walk in your healing because you can lose it
“Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. – John 5:14
Now let’s look at prayer because it is the prayer of faith that will heal the sick, but what is prayer?
Prayer is our messenger before God. “And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.” – Revelations 5:8
A messenger? Yes, your prayer is a messenger. Who or what is a messenger?
According to the Webster online dictionary a messenger is:
“one who bears a message or does an errand: such as
a: archaic: FORERUNNER, HERALD
b: a dispatch bearer in government or military service
c: an employee who carries messages
No wonder Jesus said in Luke 18:1 that ” when we pray,” not if we pray, but when we pray. This means that praying is non-negotiable.
Moreover in Luke 18:1, he said that men ought always to pray and not to faint.
Meaning that if we don’t pray our desires will not come before God and holy angles won’t be commissioned to bring healing, deliverance, favor, or whatsoever you desire from God.
Prayer is powerful, but we cannot speak about prayer without mentioning obedience.
Obedience is necessary
Our willingness to obey what God says is imperative to receive healing.
God cannot bless disobedience. He may have mercy, but why would anyone want to frustrate the grace of God when their health is on the line?
It’s not enough to only know what God says about healing. It’s equally important to do what He says to get your healing.
Your obedience is that attribute that will help you to pull what you need from heaven. Here are the scriptures you need to confess to complement your obedience to God.
