Meditating on God’s word is health to our flesh

In last week’s column I talked about the importance of renewing our minds to God’s word so we can think the way God thinks and bring out the faith that is in our born-again spirits to receive the manifestation of what we are believing for.

This week I want to give you scriptures on healing, faith and the authority we have over sickness so you can read and meditate on them.

Please do not get overwhelmed and feel like you need to do all of them at once.

This is not about quantity but about retention and renewal, so don’t try to rush through them all but meditate on a verse until it takes root in your heart and mind. Not only will this cause faith to rise up in you, but also it will help you to get that word planted in you as well, so in a time of need the Holy Spirit can bring it to your remembrance (John 14:26).

I highly recommend meditating on these verses in a personal way. For instance, in Psalm 103:3, meditate on it saying he heals all my diseases instead of your diseases. These are God’s promises to you, so claim them as your own. His word can be trusted.

I am the Lord who heals you. — Exodus 15:26.

He sent his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. — Psalm 107:20.

He himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses. — Matthew 8:17.

Who forgives all our iniquities, who heals all your diseases. — Psalm 103:3.

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon him, and by his stripes we are healed. — Isaiah 53:5.

Who himself bore our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness — by whose stripes you were healed. — 1 Peter 2:24.

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. — 1 John 4:4.

No weapon formed against you shall prosper. — Isaiah 54:17.

I shall not die but live, and declare the works of the Lord. — Psalm 118:17.

“The thief does not come except to steal, kill, and destroy. I have come that they may have life, and have it more abundantly.” — John 10:10.

“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them.” — Mark 11:23-24.

“If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” — Mark 9:23.

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. — James 4:7.

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. — 2 Timothy 1:7.

He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease. — Matthew 10:1. (That authority is now in all born-again believers.)

“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” — Luke 10:19.

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to my Father.” — John 14:12.

“And these signs shall follow those who believe ... They will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” — Mark 16:17-18.

These are just a few of the many promises from God to us about healing and our authority over sickness. Proverbs 4:22 says about God’s word, “For they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.” I pray for everyone who reads this to not just skim over these verses but to meditate on them and allow God’s word to bring health to all your flesh.
