I want you to know today—I am praying for your healing and health. I proclaim the power of God’s Word and promises over you, even if I don’t know you by name…God does.
Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
—Proverbs 30:5 NIV
I don’t claim to understand why some are healed and some are not; what I know for sure is that God wants us to trust Him for healing. If I’m wrong about that, nothing else in the Word makes sense—but since I know I’m right, everything makes sense. As a believer completely healed of Stage 4 Non-Hodgkins lymphoma, I know that God still does the hard stuff.
He wants us healed and understands our interest in our healing not taking forever.
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.—Proverbs 13:12 NIV
The enemy’s words are always the opposite of what God says. And the enemy uses fear to block our healing and our blessings. Be assured today that things are happening in the spiritual realm that we cannot see or measure. Consider, for example, what happened after Daniel prayed (Daniel 6). In the lion’s den, lions acted like lambs. An angel of God gave them lockjaw—(look that up; it’s a real pathological ailment.)
I’m confident that everything God promised, everything He has ever said to me will be given to me. I believe I will accomplish everything the Lord said about me. I believe I possess all that the Lord said that I have. This is the level of faith I claim for you. Be confident; your deliverance is on the way!
Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today…”—Exodus 14:13a, NIV
Reach up your right hand, at this very moment; allow God to take hold of you. This gesture is not about you holding God’s hand…for you might let Him go…but He will never let go of your hand.
For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, “Do not fear; I will help you.”—Isaiah 41:13 NIV
So don’t be afraid. You are worth more than many sparrows, and sparrows, as small as they are, fear absolutely nothing. (Matthew 10:31 NIV)
