Psalm 103:1-5 BLESS (AFFECTIONATELY, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul; and all that is [deepest] within me, bless His holy name!
Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul, and forget not [one of] all His benefits-Who forgives [every one of] all your iniquities, Who heals [each one of] all your diseases, Who redeems your life from the pit and corruption, Who beautifies, dignifies, and crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercy; Who satisfies your mouth [your necessity and desire at your personal age and situation] with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle's [strong, overcoming, soaring]!
Notice it doesn't say some of his benefits, it
says all! It also states that healing is one of the benefits that belongs to the believer along with the benefit of having our sins forgiven.
Look into your soul an begin to declare a passionate speech of the Word of God from the heart over yourself.
Psalm 34:19 "Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all."
1Thessalonians 5:23 "And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly [completely]; and I pray God for your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless [sound, complete and intact] unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."
NOTE- It is very clear in this passage that wholeness, wellness, and health is for the complete make-up of man, spiritual, mental, and physical.
Jeremiah 30:17 "For I will restore health unto you, and I will heal you of your wounds, saith the Lord.""
Isaiah 53:4-5 Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy]. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.
NOTE - The last part of this verse,"by His stripes we are healed," he is not talking about spiritual healing, as some have taught, but definite physical healing. God does not "heal" a human spirit, he recreates it. He does however, heal our bodies and minds. This clearly shows that your healing was paid for at the cross!
1 Peter 2:24 "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."
NOTE - Past tense "You were healed". Jesus paid it all for your total deliverance - spirit, soul and body!
Mark 16:17-18"And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name . . . they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."
NOTE- Find someone who believes God's Word regarding healing and have them lay hands on you and pray for you in faith based on the promises of God.
Acts 5:16 "Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed.
NOTE- Even after Jesus had been crucified, rose back to life again, and ascended into heaven, we see the very same work that Jesus performed, while on the earth, still taking place through the hands of His disciples, and with the very same intensity - all being healed. And why not?
Hebrews 13:8 tells us that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever!-
Hebrews 7:25 Because Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant (verse 22), "Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them."
Take a look at this scripture in the Amplified Version:"Therefore He is able also to save to the uttermost (completely, perfectly, finally, and for all time and eternity) those who come to God through Him, since He is always living to make petition to God and intercede with Him and intervene for them.",
NOTE- It's important to remember that the word "save" in the Greek is the word sozo which literally means to heal, preserve, save, do well, be (make) whole. It means deliverance in the present as well as in the future or in eternity, physical as well as spiritual. Jesus used this word to denote healing of the body as well as forgiveness of sins. Always translate this word "save" - heal, make whole" when you come across it in the Word.
Acts 13:38-39 "Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through this Man [Jesus] is preached to you the forgiveness of sins; and by Him everyone who believes is justified [declared righteous] from all things from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses."
NOTE - From now on you need to train yourself to translate the word "justified" as declared righteous. That is the literal Greek
translation. The literal breakdown: just-if-i'd never sinned! That's the true meaning of biblical righteousness - to be in right standing with God.
2 Corinthians 5:21 tells us plainly that as born-again believer's we have become the righteousness of God in Christ. Because of the forgiveness of sins, through His shed blood, we are redeemed and declared righteous from ALL THINGS which we could not be declared
righteous, apart from His redemptive work. This is our position in Christ and it's more than just spiritual, the effects of this right-standing or righteousness pertain to the soul, the body and our life here on this earth.
Romans 8:11 "But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal (Natural, Earthly) bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you."
NOTE- Take a close look at this Scripture, this is talking about your body that you have now, not the one you're going to receive one day in heaven! Allow the Lord to impart His life into you by placing faith in His Word. Begin to praise Him for this promise.
2 Corinthians 4:10-11 "Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus (which was for our victory), that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh." - Bodily Health!!!
Matthew 6:9-10 "Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on Earth as it is in heaven."
NOTE - Jesus always prays the will of God, and He prays that the will of God be done here on the earth just as it is in heaven.
People in heaven are not sick, so we can clearly see it is God's will that we also be free from sickness and disease.
Deuteronomy 11:21 (If a believer honors God and lives according to the Word, He says...) "That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD swore unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth."
NOTE - God's plan is that His children begin to experience the inheritance of the heavenly life while here on the earth. We're already His children, and we have been given special rights. Learning to walk in the Word of God, brings the benefits of the Word of God into a living, functioning reality.
Deuteronomy 7:15 "And the LORD will take away from you all sickness, and will afflict you with none of the terrible diseases of Egypt which you have known, but will lay them on all those who hate you."
NOTE - If this was a promise to God's covenant people under the Old Covenant, how much more does this benefit of health pertain to us today; as we are under the New Covenant which is based upon the precious Blood of Jesus Christ!
Romans 8:32 "He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?"
NOTE- Surely this includes healing!!!
Isaiah 40:31 "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint."
NOTE- The word "wait" in this verse implies a positive action of hope, based on knowing that the Word of God is a true fact and that it will soon come to pass - waiting with earnest expectation!"
Jeremiah 33:6 "Behold, I will bring you health and cure, and I will cure you, and will reveal unto you the abundance of peace and truth."
Matthew 18:19 "Again I say to you that if two of you agree on Earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven." NOTE- The prayer of agreement is powerful - have someone agree with you for your healing!
Mark 11:24"Therefore I say to you whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them." Surely this includes healing!
Isaiah 58:8 "Thy light shall break forth as the morning, and thy health shall spring forth speedily; and thy righteousness shall go before thee: the glory of the Lord shall be thy rear guard."
Psalm 41:3 (Amplified Version) "The Lord will sustain, refresh, and strengthen him on his bed of languishing; " NOTE- . The phrase "all his bed" in the Hebrew, has the meaning of; all that he is afflicted with, or all of his condition that he is lying with" It is always His will to turn, change and transform our mourning into dancing - Psalm 30:11
3 John 2 "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth."
Jeremiah 17:14 "Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise."
NOTE- Once a person finally understands that healing is a part of the finished work of grace along with salvation, paid for at the same time with the same healing Blood, then you can get excited about this verse saying; "You did it Lord for me! Then according to this verse I will agree and say, I will have healing just as I have salvation, it's mine NOW!"
James 5:14-15 "Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him."
James 5:16 "the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.""
Lets agree together for your healing and deliverance.
Heavenly Father, we come to you in the holy name of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
We ask that by the power of your Holy Spirit you glorify His Name by healing and delivering us right now from all sicknesses and bondages, that you renew and strengthen our faith in the holy name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Thank you heavenly Father for you love and grace always.
