God needs all of His children to have strong and healthy bodies to fulfill His plans on Earth. There are those with illnesses, ailments, and injuries that have done great things for the Lord but I believe we can do more with a healthy body.
There is a medicine so powerful that it can bring healing and health to every part of the human body.
It has no dangerous side effects.
It is safe for children, adults, and those with current sick conditions.
It can double the dose or even take massive doses and the side effects are awesome.
You don’t have to call your Doctor for a prescription for it.
You don’t have to drive to a pharmacy to pick it up.
All you must do is reach for your Bible and follow the instructions you find there.
Here they are:
Proverb 4:20 My son, ATTEND to my words; INCLINE thine ear unto my sayings.
21 LET THEM NOT DEPART from thine eyes; KEEP THEM in the midst of thine heart.
22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health (medicine) to all their flesh.
23 KEEP THY HEART with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
24 PUT AWAY FROM THEE a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.
God’s Prescription for healing and health is:
- ATTEND – take time with the Word
- INCLINE – Take heed how you hear
- EYES ON THE WORD – Keep your attention on the Word not symptoms
- GUARD YOUR HEART– protect what goes in your heart
- TALK RIGHT– talk in line with the Word you are believing
Psalm 107:20 also connects healing with God’s Word when it says, “He sent His Word and healed them and delivered them from their destructions.” The word for healed is the same word translated health in Proverb 4:22. It is the Hebrew word “marpe” and means to heal diseases of all kinds; a cure or curative; a remedy; and medicine.
The reason the Word of God is health and medicine is because of what it contains according to John 6:63 and Hebrews 4:12
John 6:63 It is the spirit that QUICKENETH; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are SPIRIT, and they are LIFE.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is QUICK, and POWERFUL, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
The Word of God quickens or makes alive, gives life, or causes things to live because it is full of spirit and life. Life like God breathed into Adam in Genesis 2:7 in the past and like He will breathe into the two dead witnesses of Revelation 11:11 in the future who will come alive.
The Word of God is quick or full of life, having vital power in itself, and able to exert the same; it is powerful or active, operative, effectual, and full of energy.
Remember, God’s Word, like medicine, is:
- A healing agent.
- Will work for whoever takes it.
- Must be taken according to directions.
- Takes time to work.
