Healing From the Word - By Pat Stanton


God sent His Word - the written and Living Word to heal! "Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching, preaching the good news, and healing every weakness and infirmity among the people" (Matthew 4:23).

 

Psalm 107:20, "He sent His word and healed them and delivered them from their destruction." He is still unlimited, unchanging, and all powerful!


God has not changed His mind about healing. His thoughts and ideas for man are the same. "For I am the Lord, I do not change..." (Malachi 3:6). "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever" (Hebrews 13:8).

 

I love the truth about healing in Exodus 15:26. The Lord declares to His people that "He is the Lord that heals." This same message is given in Isaiah 53:4,5 and in 1 Peter 2:24.


Aren't we glad that God's truth is still enduring to all generations! This is expressed in Psalm 33:11, "The counsel of the Lord stands forever, and the plans of His heart to all generations."

 

God also states that the "authority of His word is settled and established in heaven and that His faithfulness endures to all generations" (Psalm 119:89,90). We should all give thanks that we can receive healing and help from the written and the Living Word!
