Healing is one of our favorite topics to teach! Join us for part 2 a special 3 part series on Healing – it is for YOU!
Why do we have to DO something to get healed if God wants us healed and has all power to heal? Psalm 115:16 tells us why this is the case and we look at this verse and how it applies to our lives and receiving from God.
Some actions we can take to receive healing:
1.) Make good choices to purposefully hear the Word of faith for healing. The Word produces faith! Romans 10:17
2.) Know that faith is SPECIFIC so to be healed, we need to hear the Word on what Jesus has done already to heal us and how to use His authority to resist the adversary
3.) Know that as we start confessing the Word, the angelic come around to bring it to pass, Psalm 103:20, and the adversary will oppose, so keep with it! Something is always happening when you take a stand of faith!
4.) Praise and Worship – This is our entrance into the Presence of God. Psalm 100:4 and in His Presence there is no sickness or disease. So living a lifestyle of praise, worship and thanks will help to keep 90% of symptoms away from us.
5.) Active Faith, thanks/gratitude – everyday just spending time praising Jesus for the reality that by HIS stripes we have already been healed for eternity will keep us living in divine health
6.) Laying on of hands – believers lay hands on the sick and the sick recover. That is God’s promise. You can lay hands on yourself and command the illness to go and receive your healing. You can have another believer lay their hands on you in agreement. You can have hands laid on you at a church service, in response to a Word of knowledge or just faith, and receive your healing that way.
7.) Gifts of the Spirit – Jesus wants His Body healed so much that He gifted His Church to walk in gifts of healing and faith for the working of miracles. This is always available to every believer. However, even if we receive healing this way, we will need to develop a LIFESTYLE of believing the Word ourself and resisting symptoms to stay healed. So especially if you get healed at a church service or miracle crusade, you need to learn to develop your own life of hearing, believing, confessing and using your authority as a believer.
If you are trying everything you know to do and are still stuck. Here are three simple keys to getting unstuck:
1.) Go back to basics and receive complete forgiveness in your heart from the Lord In every area of your life. Be honest and go to Him with all of your mistakes and shortcoming and error and apologize and ASK for His Personal Pardon. Then RECEIVE that pardon by faith. Stop beating yourself up and resist all fear that your mistakes are irreversible. They are not. The more faith you exert in knowing that Jesus has Personally forgiven you and Personally committed to giving you double, Isaiah 61;7, and turning the whole thing around for the saving of many, Genesis 50:20, then the easier to let yourself an others off the hook. Receiving forgiveness currently, for yourself first, is the key many times that will just unlock divine health and have symptoms fall off of your life. God is not only not going to punish you for your mistakes, but He is not going to withhold His highest and best from you either. You have not short changed God’s ability to move in your life by your mistakes. When we have received the freedom and healing balm of forgiveness for ourselves, it is easy and natural to just want to pass that on to others. When you have the burden of sin or guilt removed off of you, you don’t want anyone else to experience it either. And so it is easy to pray and root for others to be healed where they need it and receive the goodness of God for themselves. No one sins against us because their lives were going great. If people are broken and hurting themselves they can lash out at us. Forgiveness brings healing to us first for those hurts and then to the people that hurt us. Do not allow people to try to put strongholds in your thinking by saying ‘that is too awful you can’t forgive that.’ That is not true. Jesus has forgiven everything already. Even if the other person never asks to be forgiven, Jesus has forgiven them and so we can take HIS forgiveness and give it to them. That is what Jesus did on the cross, when in pain and agony He asked His Father to forgive on His behalf. We can always do that as well. And that will keep our hearts free and bodies and minds healed. Do not spread offense. If you are offended with someone else. Or even yourself. Do not repeat that to others. Because if you then forgive the person, the other person might not and will continue to bring that offense back to you. Keep yourself free by discussing all sin issues with the Lord. Receive His Forgiveness for yourself and others and keep things simple. Let God be your source. If others have failed you, God will restore that area of your life and give you double.
2.) Watch your words. Faith is NOW. Hebrews 4 If we say ‘I believe God will heal me one day’ that is good hope and optimism, but that is not Bible faith. Bible Faith is NOW. I am healed NOW, TODAY. TODAY I am the healed of God resisting symptoms in my body. Learn to use your words in FAITH. Don’t take possession of a sickness. Words are real. They either give permission for things to be in our lives, or tell things to go. God can not usurp our will/words. If we say ‘My arthritis, is giving me fits today, but I believe I am healed in Jesus Name’ we are tying God’s hands. ‘my arthritis’ is a term of possession. God can’t remove from us anything we lay claim to. So learn to speak in Faith. Learn the language of redemption, which says ‘I AM the healed of God from the top of my head to soles of my feet, resisting the symptoms of arthritis, thank you for agreeing with me!’
3.) You have authority over your own body. If something has gotten in your body, it can get right back out. We are designed with the part of our brain called the Thalamus that responds to OUR voice. Even if a doctor says ‘you have cancer’ WE can say ‘I am the healed of God, I have long life strength and health, no cancer can find a place to live inside of me, it has to GO in Jesus Name.’ WE are the final authority of our bodies. Not the doctors. God designed us so we can decide for ourselves how we are going to live. And use the authority of His Name to drive out anything that got inside of us. 1 Corinthians 6:19. Healing is simple because Jesus is simple. If you need help believing the Word or receiving your healing, contact us, and let us know how we can help you! God is THE HEALER, there is nothing that is too bad or too sad.
