Healing Scriptures

God’s Will to Heal

How do we know whether it is God’s will to heal us or not? The bible says that God is not a respecter of persons (Acts 10:34), He never changes (Malachi 3:6), He can not lie (Numbers 23:19) and Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.

There are many bible scriptures which speak healing and strength to us. If it is not God’s will that we walk in health then why did He put these scriptures in the Bible for us to read? “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16)

Since God’s word is life and health to a man’s whole body (Proverbs 4:20), meditate on the bible verses which speak to you. Write them on cards and put them in your bags, stick them on walls so that you are constantly reminded of God’s will to heal you.

Romans 10:17 tells us that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of Christ, not hearing what other people says.
