It never ceases to amaze me at how easily we can lose our focus for healing and become sidetracked by the enemy. And he's a master at getting us off-track with good things. Hmm ... What do I mean by this? When we are in need of divine healing from God, we need to build up our faith to believe for it from His Word concerning healing. But I see it over and over again that as we start to study the healing Word, we get drawn to other things, like finances, for example.
Now there isn't anything wrong with studying finances from God's Word; it's just that the timing is wrong. And vice versa, if we need a financial breakthrough we would need to study God's Word concerning finances and not healing. But now we need a miraculous healing from God, and so we need to remain focused on God's healing power and study His Word concerning healing.
The Bible is clear when it tells us that, "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God" (Rom. 10:17). If we need to build up our faith to believe God for something, we need to enter into a time in the Word concerning that topic until our faith is strong enough to trust God and believe. And in this case, we need to remain in the healing message of God's Word until we are encouraged in the faith and can actually believe and receive our supernatural healing from Him.
During your healing journey, keep His healing Word nearby. Keep your Bible open to Isaiah 53:4-5 (AMP), "But [in fact] He has borne our griefs, and He has carried our sorrows and pains; yet we [ignorantly] assumed that He was stricken, struck down by God and degraded and humiliated [by Him]. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was crushed for our wickedness [our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing]; the punishment [required] for our well-being fell on Him, and by His stripes (wounds) we are healed." And in my book, The Healing Creed I teach you the Hebrew meaning of these words to end the doubt and confusion the enemy has caused in God's camp concerning supernatural healing from Jesus.
I also have written up a confession of faith to declare over yourself from God's Word. Take this Healing Creed card and confess it over yourself over and over. Confessing God's Word over yourself is very powerful and reaps results.
Write notes to yourself with your favorite healing verses and place them around your home or office. These serve as gentle reminders of God's healing promises to you. I have compiled 100 healing verses for you available free on my website to choose from.
Whatever way you choose to use to stir your faith with the healing Word is up to you, but the point is to stay focused concerning the healing message. Don't get sidetracked—remain in the healing Word during this time in your life.
