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. 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

  2. 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 ? ❤️

  3. 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.

  4. There is a book by Andrew Wommack entitled, “God Wants You Well”. If you go to his website http://www.awmi.net, 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.

  5. I have a question. If anyone can shed light, I would so appreciate.

    I’ve had a horrifying “incurable” sickness in the past. Of course God healed me, but it took a few years because I had to learn that it WAS ALWAYS God’s will to heal me (and everyone). I’d been taught it was God’s will for me to suffer, so that stronghold had to come down. I was suffering excruciatingly 24/7, confined to bed (no big deal), but the excruciating non-stop torment was a big deal. Hard to learn, battle, do anything in that condition. Many people with same affliction I had, commit suicide. I wanted to, but was afraid of hell.

    Here is what I now believe, and no one can persuade me otherwise! This truth has roots that aren’t going anywhere but deeper. It is ALWAYS God’s will to heal everyone, and He will never turn down anyone who asks Him. And it is ALWAYS his will to do it immediately. Both are based on Scripture (not on circumstances I see around me). It’s just based on the simple truth that Jesus is the revealed will of God. He never did anything apart from the Father. And the two things I stated are both true of Jesus.

    I know someone has an answer to this question. So I keep asking bc it’s SO important for the people I am ministering to. God’s will is to always heal immediately. My friends’ wills are to be healed immediately. That only leaves the enemy, and he has been completely defeated. So for a person who is saved and has repented for any and all sin and is living in holiness daily to the best of their knowledge, WHAT is causing long delays? not days or weeks, but months or more. I cannot find anything in Scripture that would indicate there should ever be a delay. Not if we’ve taken care of everything I’ve mentioned. The only delay I see defined–which had nothing to do with healing–was in Daniel 9 and 10.

    Ken E. Hagin always had 100% healing (unique ministry). They had Rhema school of healing in the 80’s–for 2 weeks, full-time. Many, many times. Only sick people could attend. He taught how to get healed and keep it. And if anyone was having difficulty obtaining it for themselves, he would have healing lines, pray for anyone who hadn’t received yet, and they would receive. IF they didn’t receive, then God gave his wife a word of knowledge as to what was standing in the way. I’ve heard some of the stories, and they are unusual things that I wouldn’t guess could hold up a healing (not giving tithe for instance).

    This unique ministry was going on 40 years ago. I’m thinking the kingdom advances, and surely there is some place I can get words of knowledge (when I’m not receiving them myself) to help these hundreds of people (thousands soon) receive the healing Jesus paid for. There is just something “stuck”, and I’m looking for someone who can help me. Thank you Jesus. I believe what I’m asking for is according to your will, therefore I believe I’ve received. YAY!!! Looking forward to seeing the answer.
