Today I wanted to share with you some of my favorite scriptures on healing and health. Let’s dive right into the top 10 healing scriptures, shall we.
3 John 1:2
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”
I love this prayer and this truth: He wants us healthy.
“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.”
Stand in agreement with this scripture.
1 Peter 2:24
“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”
In physical health and emotional health, healing and health is ours.
“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases.”
He’s a good Father. He gives good gifts and provides healing for us.
“My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.”
His word is life and health to us.
“And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment. For she said to herself, “If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well.” But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, “Be of good cheer, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And the woman was made well from that hour.”
He will meet you where your faith is.
“And the whole multitude sought to touch Him, for power went out from Him and healed them all.”
Jesus only did what He saw His Father doing. He is in the business of healing people.
“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”
Our heart posture matters. What is weighing you down that you need to let Him take?
“Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.”
He wants to see you well. He didn’t give this to you.
“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
There will be times where you don’t “feel” like anything is happening. That doesn’t mean that God is not at work in your life. You don’t have to feel something for His word and promises for your life to be true.
