Receive The Word God Has Sent 2 Heal U

Psalm 107:20  -  He sent His word and healed them, AND delivered them from their destructions.

Your Bible will do u no good if u leave it on your bedside table, gathering dust. It will do u no good if u hold it like a teddy bear when u are facing your “giants”. But God’s Word will do u a lot of good when u RECEIVE it as Truth and SPEAK it as Truth! Then, u will see your healing and deliverance from every evil condition that has been sent 2 destroy u!

The Bible says that “He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions”. Now, when God wants 2 heal u, what does He do? He sends His Word. Before God delivers u from your destruction, He sends His Word.

Are u still waiting 2 experience the blessing of healing that Jesus died on the cross 2 give u? Don’t feel condemned. Your Father in heaven loves u and wants u well. But how does your healing come? By u receiving His Word on healing that He has already sent u. His promises of healing are all there in your Bible. But have u received them?

During one of our church services, a lady took out her cell phone and started sending text messages of every scripture and almost every key point that I was preaching that day 2 her friend who was at home dying of cancer. I was telling the congregation 2 keep CONFESSING the healing scriptures over their bodies, no matter how bad their conditions were. I pointed them 2 Isaiah 53:5, which says, “By His stripes we are healed.” The lady got so excited that she told her friend 2 keep believing and confessing it every day! 

Her friend, on reading the text messages, simply received the Word of God and confessed it by faith. That very same week, when she went back 2 the doctor, the doctor could not find a single trace of cancer in her body!

Never underestimate the power of God’s Word. The lady’s friend was healed bcoz she received God’s Word by faith. She gladly read the messages that her friend had sent her, was encouraged by the Word, confessed it and received her miracle. God sent His Word and healed her, AND saved her from her destruction!

Nothing Shall By Any Means Hurt U!

Luke 10:19 -  Behold, I give u the authority 2 trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and Nothing shall by any means hurt u.

Years ago, while traveling on a domestic flight in the United States, I was seated next 2 a woman whose whole body was tense with fear. Concerned, I asked if I could help her in any way. Between sobs, she told me about her fear of flying. I told her, “Don’t worry. I am on board. Nothing will happen 2 the plane.” I did not say it with pride. I said it knowing that the Lord was on board the plane with me and that I would have a safe journey bcoz He has promised that “nothing shall by any means hurt u”.

Once, when Jesus was in the boat with his disciples, He told them, “Let us cross over 2 the other side.” (Mark 4:35) Believing that they would cross over 2 the other side, He fell asleep in the stern. A great storm arose, but it could not rouse Him from His sleep, only the cries of His terrified disciples did. They had forgotten what Jesus had said about them crossing over 2 the other side. They had also forgotten that with Jesus in the boat with them, there was no possibility of them going down. Nothing could by any means hurt them bcoz Jesus was with them.

Even being thrown into a fiery furnace could not hurt 3 young Hebrew men bcoz they believed that God would deliver them. They had proclaimed 2 the heathen King Nebuchadnezzar, “... our God whom we serve is able 2 deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king.” (Daniel 3:17) And in the midst of their fiery trial, their deliverer not only walked with them in the fire, He also delivered them from all harm. King Nebuchadnezzar even said, “Look! I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.” (Daniel 3:25).

Beloved, in the midst of your storm or fiery trial, bcoz Jesus is with u, nothing shall by any means hurt u!
