If you have been reading along for any length of time you probably know how I feel about words –seeds. Words, like seeds, can dig deeply and take root. They are so powerful they can change the way you think, act, and feel. There are promises in the Bible precisely for those who are ailing; verses that we should use as meditations and mantras to foster healing within our bodies. These biblical verses, coupled with forgiveness for those who have hurt you, can be powerful healers. Forgiveness is key, that’s why Jesus placed it in The Lord’s Prayer. It fosters healing in our mind, body, and spirit; and, without it, it inhibits the Spirit of God from fully working at optimum capacity in your life.
There are people who are going through some serious ailments, heartache, or pain reading this. If it is not you, then it is someone you know. So, there are verses you should be reading, meditating, and muttering as frequently as possible that will aid your healing. Today’s verse is just one of them; however, here are a few more.
“But He was wounded for [my] transgressions; He was bruised for [my] iniquities: the chastisement of [my] peace was upon Him; and with His stripes [I am] healed.” Isaiah 53:5
“Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for Thou art my praise.” Jeremiah 17:14
“Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all [my] iniquities; Who heals all [my] diseases; Who redeems [my] life from destruction; Who crowns [me] with Loving-kindness and tender mercies; Who satisfies [my] mouth with good things; so that [my] youth is renewed like the eagle's.” Psalm 103:2-5
These are just a few Bible verses for you to use as positive biblical affirmations to declare that you stand on the promise of God to heal you. So go ahead, cry out, plead, or simply ask; because, as a Believer, healing is a promise that was created just for you from the foundation of the world. L.
