He personally carried the load of our sins in his own body when he died on the cross so that we can be finished with sin and live a good life from now on. For his wounds have healed ours! Like sheep you wandered away from God, but now you have returned to your shepherd, the guardian of your souls who keeps you safe from all attacks. — I Peter 2:24
We know sin is what causes disease, but we have been delivered from the curse of sin. Jesus paid the price we owed for our sins so we do not have to suffer with disease. Now the question is: Why do we get sick? There are several reasons why sickness comes upon us, but the root cause is always sin. It can be your sin. It can be your ancestor’s sin. Or, it may simply be the sin of the world. Right about now, I bet you are thinking… “That’s not fair…I should not have to pay for the world’s sin. Why should I have to pay for someone else’s sin? I thought God was a just God and that doesn’t seem fair to me. “
It was for these very reasons God sent Jesus to pay for sin. God’s Son paid the price so that we do not have to pay. When we gave our lives to Christ we received so much more than eternal life in heaven. We were given a basket full of gifts from God. He gave us His Word, the most wonderful gift, because it allows each of us to get to know God on a personal level.
Along with the Bible, He gave us the Holy Spirit. That too, is the most wonderful gift, because Holy Spirit is our constant companion. He walks with us and talks with us throughout life. He guides us through the storms. He protects us. He is how we know God is ALIVE! He gives us armor to fight off the evils of the world. He is the one who gives us many other gifts throughout life as we need them. One of the gifts He gives is Divine Healing. All of these gifts, and many more, were given to us when we gave our lives to Christ. But, if you don’t read the Word of God, you don’t know about them and you don’t know how to use your inheritance. If you don’t open the gifts in the basket, you will never know what they hold.
It is important to read the Bible and search for answers ourselves. This is when we begin to discover all the wonders God has waiting for us. If we don’t read the Book of Life and learn what He has for us, we cannot receive our gifts. They lay there dormant until we decide to use them.
We have already learned that spoken words create. Speaking the Word of God over our bodies creates a well spirit with which to heal the body. We know what the Word says and we must receive it through faith. You can speak the Word over your body and it will bring you to a place of creating a deeper faith, which allows your body to accept it. Once the body accepts the healing it will behave accordingly. God honors His Word. He can’t ignore it because He cannot lie. It is very productive to repeatedly speak His Word over your body for Divine Healing.
Following are a few scriptures you can use to get started. Repeat them over and over when you are having fear or doubt about God’s healing power within your body. Each of them is personalized, using the scripture which is noted afterwards.
