From The Heart

Publish date: 02/21/2010

As believers, it is important that we learn to pray the Word of God over our own lives and over our own bodies. Too many believers are too lazy to press into God for themselves, and instead, rely on someone else’s faith or someone else’s gift. When you are a baby Christian, God will allow you to do that, but after a while He expects you to stand on your own two feet and have your own relationship with Him. Ultimately, He wants every one of us to be completely dependent on Him and if you are looking to man to be your help and salvation, then you are not trusting in God or looking to Him at all.  

The power of God is wrapped up in His Word. Whatever you need from Father God, find a scripture that covers what you are believing God for and pray it. Put your trust in God and put the Pressure on the Word.

God’s Word is Medicine to our Bodies.

My son, attend to my words; consent and submit to my sayings. 21 Let them not depart from your sight; keep them in the center of your heart. 22 For they are life to those who find them, healing and health to all their flesh. Proverbs 4:20-22 AMP

As you spend time meditating on God’s Word memorizing it, receiving it for yourself personally, and allowing it to become part of you it will become real to you and the result will be that life, healing and health will come to your body.

Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? 2 For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him. 3 He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. 4 Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. 5 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. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. 7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, And as a sheep before its shearers is silent, So He opened not His mouth. 8 He was taken from prison and from judgment, And who will declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living; For the transgressions of My people He was stricken. 9 And they made His grave with the wicked—But with the rich at His death, Because He had done no violence, Nor was any deceit in His mouth. 10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand. 11 He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many, For He shall bear their iniquities. 12 Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, And He shall divide the spoil with the strong, Because He poured out His soul unto death, And He was numbered with the transgressors, And He bore the sin of many, And made intercession for the transgressors.
Isaiah 53:1-12 NKJV

When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick, 17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: “He Himself took our infirmities And bore our sicknesses.”  Matthew 8:16-17 NJKV

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 NKJV

God’s Word is Spirit and it is life. God’s Word brings healing to every aspect of our lives. God’s Word will only work in our lives when it is IN us and we are in it.

If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.  John 15:7 NKJV

We must meditate on God’s Word and we must pray His Word out loud. The Word of God is the divine seed of God bringing life, health, healing and deliverance.

He sent His Word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
  Psalm 107:20 KJV

And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you.  Romans 8:11 AMP

If you need healing in your body you need to meditate on God’s Word. Even if your body is healthy and strong, you need to build up your faith in the area of healing. Take these scriptures and meditate on them every day. Read them, think about them, speak them out loud, and pray them over your body and you will see God’s healing power begin to work in your body.
