The subject of healing is a very sensitive one with Believers having a wide view of if & how God heals. As with any topic, we must be willing to lay aside our opinions or convictions because the reality is that they are usually based on our experience or what comforts us in our circumstances. Healing is no different. The Word of God isn't always convenient or lines up with our convictions. As one preacher asks, "Do your beliefs get in the way of the Bible?". So, ask yourself, are you willing to Believe what God's Word says - even if it seems impossible? The sooner we realize that the Father really did give us everything we need for life and godliness, the sooner we'll be able to receive everything that Jesus gave us through His Blood. Healing is a gift to us through the Blood of Yeshua (Jesus). It's been done. The issue we run into is increasing our capacity to receive the promises that are ours and learning to live by the Spirit and not by the flesh. We will always see healing? No. Why? Lots of reasons but one of them ISN'T God teaching us a lesson or that He is glorified in it. God is GOOD. He desires that we be in health and prosper. Healing has been given out. Healing is the children's bread. Let's seek God to learn how to grasp it and build ourselves up in HIS Word - and not our own.

There's power in warring with the Word of God. Hebrews understood that meditation meant "mumbling" - repeating something over and over. To mediate on the Word of God is to repeat it, outloud.

MATTHEW 6:30-33 Therefore do not worry and be anxious, saying, What are we going to have to eat? or, What are we going to have to drink? or, What are we going to have to wear? For the Gentiles (heathen) wish for and crave and diligently seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows well that you need them all. But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides. So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble. [AMPC]

PSALM 43: I long to drink of you, O God, drinking deeply from the streams of pleasure flowing from your presence. My longing overwhelm me for more of You! My soul thirsts, pants, and long for the living God. I want to come and see the face of God. Day and night my tears keep falling and my heart keeps crying for your help while my enemies mock me over and over…So I speak over my heartbroken soul, “Take courage. Remember when you used to be right out front leading the procession of praise…So then, my soul, why would you be depressed? Why would you sink into despair? Just keep hoping and waiting on God, your Savior. For no matter what, I will still sing with praise, for living before His face is my saving grace!
My deep need calls out to the deep kindness of your love…all day long God’s promises of love pour over me. Through the night I sing His songs, for my prayer to God has become my life…so I say to my soul, “Don’t be discouraged. Don’t be disturbed. For I know my God will break through for me. ” [TPT]
