When in need of healing there are two things that are very important. And they are the words you take in and the words you speak out. In Proverbs 4:20-23 God gives specific instructions to attend to his words, incline your ear unto his sayings, let them not depart from your eyes, keep them in the midst of your heart. Notice, where it says to keep the word, in your heart. In Act 14:7-10 it speaks of a man that was impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother's womb. It says this man heard Paul speak and Paul perceived that the man had faith to be healed and called out, "Stand upright on thy feet." And the man that was a cripple leaped and walked just by hearing the word. How could that have happened, because in Mark chapter 4 Jesus told a parable of a man that went out to sow seed. The seed was the word and the ground was the heart(spirit) of man. Notice, when the seed fell on good ground the seed yielded fruit. So, while the man was listening seed was being sown in the ground of his spirit. And the seeds that was sown yielded fruit.
That's why Jesus said, "Take heed what ye hear." Because when you hear seed is being sown. And when seed is sown in good ground it will yield fruit. In Proverbs 4:23 it warns you to guard your heart(spirit) with all diligence for out of it are the issues of life. Because, the spirit of a man is like soil. What is sown in it you will have the fruit of it. So, if you sow the seeds of healing you will have the fruit of healing. Notice, in Proverbs 15:30 it says that a good report maketh the bones fat(healthy). What is a good report, it's a report in line with God's word. Notice, in Isaiah 53:1 it says, "Who hath believed our report?" You have to believe God's report. In Numbers 13 Moses sent out 12 spies to spy out the land that God had promised to them and after 40 days they came back to report about the land. Notice, what 10 of the spies said, they said the cities are walled, the people are great, we are like grasshoppers and the whole congregation lifted up their voice and cried and wept that night. They accepted in them the report of the 10 spies. But, notice what the other 2 said Caleb and Joshua, "Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it." "If the Lord delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it to us: their defence is departed from them, and the Lord is with us: fear them not." But, the people didn't accept their report they said, "Would God that we have died in the land of Egypt! or would God that we had died in this wilderness!" They also said, "And wherefore hath the Lord brought us into this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey? were it not better for us to return into Egypt?" And notice God's response, "As ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you: Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me. Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun." Notice, had they received Caleb's and Joshua's report they would have possessed the land. Notice, their words played a big part in what they all received.
And in receiving healing your words play a big part in what you receive. Notice, in Proverbs 4:22 it says God's word is health to all your flesh. That word health is translated medicine, remedy, cure, and healing. And when your words are in line with God's word they will be health to all of your flesh. Proverbs 12:18 says,"But the tongue(words) of the wise is health." Proverbs 15:4 says, "A wholesome(healing) tongue is a tree of life." Proverbs 16:24 says, "Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." So, what words are you speaking. Notice, in Joshua 1:8 it says do not let the word of God depart out of your mouth, it should stay in your mouth. Make his words your words. Like, Hebrews 10:23 says, "Let us hold fast the profession/confession of our faith without wavering;(for he is faithful that promised). That word confession means to say the same thing. Keep hearing and speaking God's report and you will bring forth fruit with patience (Luke 8:15). What is God's report- Surely he hath borne our griefs(disease,sickness) and carried our sorrows(pain,affliction). The chastisement of our peace was upon him and with his stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:4,5). Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes we were(past tense) healed (1Peter 2:24). He sent his word and healed them (Psalm 107:20). Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases (Psalm 103:1-3).
