The scripture in Exodus 15:26 says, "I am the LORD who heals you."
Psalm 103:2-3; "...the LORD who heals all your diseases."
God is your physician. The medicine He prescribes is His Holy Word.
Psalm 107:20 NLT He sent out his word and healed them, snatching them from the door of death.
Jeremiah 30:17 The Message Bible As for you, I’ll come with healing, curing the incurable.
That's a great verse for anyone who has been told they have a terminal illness!
John 1:14 So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.
Prov 4:20-22 My son, attend to my words; incline your ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are life unto those that find them and
health [or medicine] to all their flesh.
God's Word has the directions for your cure. You must follow the directions for the medication that God has prescribed to you for the life and health of your body.
The directions He has given in Prov 4:20-22 tell us to pay attention to what God says. LISTEN carefully to His words. Don't lose SIGHT of His words. Let His Words PENETRATE
deep into your heart. It is His Words that bring LIFE to you and HEALING to all your body.
Let me share a testimony with you today.
A number of years ago when we moved into a new house; I was removing some rubbish in a large black plastic bag and as I grabbed the bag to put it on the trailer, a razor blade in the rubbish slashed the third finger of my left hand right to the bone. Blood gushed everywhere and in the natural it would have required several stitches. I
wrapped a handkerchief around it and began to remind God about His promises.
The Holy Spirit then brought to my memory Ezekiel 16:6, "When I passed by thee and saw thee in thine own polluted blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live!..."
This Word from God's Word became medicine in my flesh as I spoke it out and believed it could be a reality for me right away. As I spoke I released the power of The Word by faith and I commanded the blood flow to stop
in Jesus' Name. Immediately the flow slowed and within a couple of hours, there was only a white mark where there should have been several stitches.
I had used my plan of action! Do you have a plan should you ever need it???
Hebrews 4:12 "God's Word is quick (alive) and powerful (filled with God's power)......"
You must have your plan of action to use by faith when the circumstances demand it!
Television programs; no matter how good they may be, will not give you a plan of action!
Most books only inform you, but it takes God's Word to transform you, and your own diligent application of it to produce such a plan.
It is necessary to meditate in His Word for success.
The Word must be practical otherwise it is of no value in the emergency situation.
If your home caught fire, what would you do?
Perhaps phone your pastor and ask him to pray while the fire burns stronger and your home is demolished? That probably sounds silly! But what you need is the Fire Brigade to come and put the fire out!
But if you have a plan of action already working in your life, you would be walking in the sure and certain knowledge of what the Prophet Isaiah said; Isaiah 43:2 "....when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned, neither shall the fire kindle upon thee."
You must have this Word working in your life as a part of your daily walk, then there is no way the Devil can burn your house down!
The same principle works for the health in your body!
God's Word is full of medicine. I can send you a list if you will be diligent and study and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you to them.
Remember that you may not always be full of faith, so you should be constantly feeding God's Word into your spirit man to stay in faith!
IF IN ANY DOUBT GO TO THE DOCTOR!
Be encouraged to start to make your plan of action and if you give God the same time and opportunity as the doctor, you'll be surprised how much He is able to do for you!
Yes! Faith and Medicine can mix!
Another testimony; about two years ago I took an uncomfortable pain in my side, and as it didn't improve, I went to the doctor. He diagnosed diverticulitis. My response was, "I will have to pray about that!"
When I came home I prayed and God spoke into my heart and said not to eat any more red meat. And I loved a nice steak! So I choose to stop eating red meat and I've had no more trouble with the pain. I still eat chicken and fish, and that's no problem.
NOTE: [This was a word God gave ME, it is not a general word for everyone with diverticulitis. You need to seek God for yourself.
If you are taking prescription medicine, continue taking it, but pray and seek God and you will come to a place where God's Medicine, (The Word), will become more powerful in your flesh and you'll start to live by it daily!
I have a book entitled FAITH AND MEDICINE, DO THEY MIX? on this subject that's on special this month. I can send it to you for $20 post paid, just contact us if you'd like a copy, or my list of healing scriptures to help you study God's Word and devise your Healing Plan.
