By Rev. John Osteen (Father of Joel Osteen, and Founder of Lakewood Church)

I fear the Lord and I prolong my days. I keep my heart with all diligence for out of it flows the issues of life. (Prov. 4:23; 10:27)

My desire is only of the Lord and it is a tree of life. I fear the Lord and He is my fountain of life. I have a sound heart and it is the life of my flesh. (Prov. 13:12; Prov. 14:27, 30)

I have a merry heart and it does good like a medicine. My belly is satisfied by the fruit of my mouth, and with the increase of my lips I am filled. Death and life are in the power of my tongue. I speak the life-giving words of God and I receive life and health in my body. (Prov. 17:22; Prov. 18:20-21)

Jesus Christ has borne my sicknesses and carried my pain. He was stricken, smitten of God and afflicted for me. He was wounded for my transgressions and He was bruised for my guilt and iniquities. The chastisement needed to obtain peace and well-being for me was upon Him, and with the stripes that wounded Him, I am healed and made whole. I now have perfect health in my body. (Isa. 53:4-5; 1 Peter 2:24)

The will of God is done on earth as it is done in heaven. There is no sickness in heaven; therefore, I am not sick at all on the earth. Jesus was never sick on this earth. Jesus is in me and His life flows in me. As He was in the world so am I in this world. I am healthy as Jesus was healthy upon this earth. (Matt. 6:10; Gal. 2:20; 1 John 4:17)

Jesus destroyed the works of the devil, which were diseases, sicknesses, and bodily infirmities; therefore, all the works of the devil upon my body are destroyed and I have perfect health in Jesus Christ. (Matt. 8:17; 1 John 3:8; Acts 10:38)

I am justified by my words. I have the faith of Jesus Christ in me, for Jesus is in me, and He is the Author and Finisher of my faith. I speak unto the mountains of sickness and disease and they obey my words and leave. I have authority and power over all disease and sickness; I command them to leave and they obey my words. I lay my hands on the sick and they recover. (Matt. 12:37; Heb. 12:2; Mark 11:23; Matt. 10:1; Mark 16:18)

I believe in God and all His promises, and all things are possible unto me. All the promises of God are Yes unto me for Christ has paid the price for all of them. (Mark 9:23; 2 Cor. 1:20)

I believe that all those things I say shall come to pass. All things which I desire, when I pray, I believe that I have received them and I have them. (Mark 11:23-24)

Whatsoever I ask in the Name of Jesus, Jesus himself does it that the Father may be glorified in the Son. When I ask for anything in the Name of Jesus, Jesus says He will do it. (John 14:13-14)

The Father loves Jesus Christ and gives Him all that He asks. The Father loves me as much as He loves Jesus and gives me everything that I ask. (John 16:23-27; 17:23)

All authority in heaven and earth is given unto Jesus Christ. I have faith in the power and authority of the Name of Jesus Christ and through His Name I am made perfectly whole. (Matt. 28:18; Acts 3:16)

The Spirit of God who raised up Jesus Christ from the dead dwells in me, and He who raised up Jesus Christ from the dead, also quickens and gives life to my mortal body through His Spirit who now dwells in me. (Rom. 8:11)

I confess with my mouth the Lord Jesus Christ and believe in my heart that God has raised Him from the dead and I am healed. For with my heart I believe unto righteousness and with my mouth confession is made unto healing and health. (Rom 10:9,10; Mark 5:23; Acts 14:9)

My health springs forth and the glory of the Lord is revealed in me. The Lord brings me health and cure, and reveals unto me the abundance of peace and truth. (Isa. 58:8; John 17:22; Jer. 33:6)

I sow to the Spirit and reap of the Spirit life everlasting. I sow words of health and healing every day and daily reap health in my physical body. (Gal. 6:8-9)

Jesus has destroyed Satan and spoiled all his principalities and powers, and they no longer have any power in me. In the Name of Jesus, I have power over them and over all their works of sickness and disease. (Heb. 2:14; Col. 2:14-15; Mark 16:17-18)

The word is near me, even in my heart and in my mouth; that is the word of faith which I speak. (Rom. 10:8)

It is the will of God that I should prosper and be in perfect health even as my soul prospers. (3 John 2)

My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and all the fullness of God dwells in me. I glorify God in my body and in my spirit which are His. (1 Cor 6:19-20; Eph. 3:19).

    1. Marie
      Jesus bore pain and sinusitis on the cross so you would not have to bear it. Therefore you ARE HEALED Keep your faith on that Truth and continue confessing healing scriptures In Jesus Name. Remember you are not the sick trying to get healed. You are the Healed maintaining your healing. ??

  4. I had hands laid on me and I believe that I’ve received my healing and I am recovering in the mighty name of Jesus! Amen!
    Thank You Heavenly Father for healing me! In Jesus’ name amen!

    1. Where to buy printed copy of theses meditions and confessions for health and healing? Thanks addtess 655 montrose ave se Roanoke va. 24013

      1. The article states that these confessions came from a book entitled ‘Spiritual Food For Victorious Living’ by John Osteen.

  5. It takes boldness and aggressive faith to stand against what you don’t want in your life. Boldness is the rule over intimidation, the devil just want to intimidate you by making you to suffer health challenges. The truth of the matter is that sickness is caused by the devil except on punishment from God for the disobedients.

  6. May God bless each one of you in need of healing. If God is for you no devil in hell can win. God said he would never leave you or forsake you. Even though your problem is hard , it is no match for God. You can do all.things through Christ Jesus who strengthens you. Bless his HOLY NAME. BY HIS STRIPES YOU ARE HEALED. In Jesus name I pray amen MERCY

  7. Please continue to pray for me

  8. Hey Madeline

    Thanking God for your refreshing testimony. It just edifies to see the same hand of God manifesting in different people alike.

    To address your question, the answer may not be as simplistic in identifing exactly what is wrong in the situation of delays.

    So many possibilities…

    Understanding – The extent to which they understand the principles of healing in Christ
    Faith — To what extent does the person believe?
    Works-. How much does his/her actions align with the expectations?
    Confessions- what are they saying?
    Satan – very stubborn and slow to relent and so there is a doggedness that is required to go through the process.
    Timing – I stand to be corrected on this, but I don’t think all healings have to be instant. Some go through their process (which may be a necessity in God’s, scheme of things. When people expect it to be instant, they walk away with reduced zeal to fight through if they don’t get it immediately.

    Most significantly, we must start with the truth that God is infallable. If anything goes wrong, its certainly not God. That leaves it to us; some omission or misunderstanding of technicalities.


  9. I hope that this helps. You already have your healing. Faith is now. When Jesus died you were healed. It never changes in the heavenly realm. You are always healed. Our bodies might change but Gods word never does. This came by revelation to me and can only come by God showing you plus you have to keep meditating on this truth to get down deep in your heart. Andrew Womack has a series you can find on YouTube called ‘you’ve already got it’. It is a series of 5 or 6 teachings which will bless you.

  10. In Mark 4, the sower sowed THE WORD.
    In Luke 17, Jesus spoke of FAITH AS A SEED.
    Paul said, “I have planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase.
    The more we read, hear and speak Gods word, in expectation, the more we renew our mind. There are many things we hear and see each day that are not faith in God. The seed of Gods word is planted in our hearts. When we read, hear and speak Gods word aloud, we are planting, and watering.
    Keep doing that, and God will give the increase. You will see the fruit of healing in your body.
    Galatians 6:9

  11. I am wondering the same thing. I have been standing and believing for years and still the same. I know the problem is on my end not Gods , but I know know what it is. I have prayed and prayer for God to show my what I’m missing but i still don’t know. Help anyone ? ❤️

  12. Madelaine, Jesus said, “According to your faith let it be done unto you.” Jesus never holds out on us so it must be something we are doing or saying that is contrary to what we want Jesus to do or we are not acting on the Word with our thoughts, words or actions. Sometimes people believe Jesus still heals but aren’t sure He will heal them. Sometimes people are so used to acting like they are still sick that they don’t act on the Word. I would have been confined to a wheel chair if I hadn’t woken up and realized that as I acted on The Word, healing would come. I walked back and forth in my room one afternoon, while still in pain and kept repeating out loud to myself, “Healed people can walk without hurting and I am healed in the Spirit and it is manifesting in the flesh now, in the Name of Jesus!” and I quoted healing scriptures out loud too. And I kept thanking Jesus for everything that wasn’t hurting. It wasn’t long before it didn’t hurt to walk and I’m still healed. Satan will come and talk to my mind or bring a pain symptom but I respond out loud and don’t receive it, cast the lying symptoms away and remind him that I am healed, in Jesus Name, amen.

  13. There is a book by Andrew Wommack entitled, “God Wants You Well”. If you go to his website, you can request a copy. You can also find this teaching on YouTube, and I heartily recommend listening to it. I truly believe it will give you answers.
