SICKNESS IS NOT a blessing and it is not God’s will. God wants His people well! If you need healing, renew your mind to what the Word says about it. Constantly think on these scriptures and speak them over yourself. God’s Word is medicine to all our flesh. That means there’s nothing it won’t cure. So take your medicine! His Word can become life and health to you!

Thank You, Father, that Your plan of redemption provided not only forgiveness for my sins but also healing for my body.

Because Jesus bore my sickness and disease, I am healed. I am free. I am well now! I believe that in my heart, so I say it with my mouth. I am healed!
