What You Have Is Healing
Almost ten years ago, God dropped a thought about healing into my spirit and I held onto the thought for a while and then, as many things in my life, I let the knowledge slip and when I really needed it, I only had head knowledge about healing, because it wasn't rooted in me and I went through some medical challenges that were unnecessary.
Heaven Doesn't Have Sickness to Give
A few years ago, I found myself really needing to understand what God says about healing and He reminded me what He'd already told me and then He added to it. God speaks to me through my fingers, so as He spoke, I wrote and here's what He said.
A Message to Me From God
It just hit me (by You, Lord) that when someone says they have XX because the doctor said they have XX, that their confession should NEVER be to come into agreement and also say, “I have XX”.
I used to think I'd figured out how to respond by saying, "I was diagnosed with XX”. But what just came to me was to say, "I was misdiagnosed with XX," because my true diagnosis is healing. Why do I believe that? Because heaven doesn’t have a sickness to give.
Jesus, through His grace, has already made everything available to me when He conquered the grave over two thousand years ago. He's not getting back up on the Cross and doing it all over again, nor did He die for just some sicknesses but others are just too powerful. No, His death paid the price for ALL sickness and disease.
I do not deny what I feel, but rather, I’m denying its right over me. I’m denying its power. God said, I am healed, and I’ve established within myself that God can’t lie.
Healed is who I am. It’s what I answer to and it should be the name you answer to as well.
I am Monica and I receive the benefits of being Monica - meaning because I am Monica, am able to drive her car, live in her house, enjoy her family.
I am healed - meaning I am able to enjoy the benefits of being healed which is enjoying health in my body and living a long life free from pain.
But if I say, “I am sick”; which is pain and suffering, maybe turmoil, maybe death, then I am now breathing life into the very thing I don't want and living a life with less peace than what God says I can have.
God says several times that we are healed, and His word never returns void. It accomplishes what He pleases and it pleases Him for us to be well. When His Word appears to return void, it’s not His fault. He did His part when He sent Jesus. But did I do my part and receive it? Or did He have more faith in His word that I did, and I couldn't receive it?
Jesus Has Made Healing Available to You
Change the Scenario
A Typical Scenario
The doctor says, “You have XX” and you are in disbelief and you repeat the doctor's words. You say, “I have XX? I have XX. Oh my God, I have XX."Now, the thought has begun to take root inside of you and it's being powered by fear.
You immediately tell someone, “My doctor said I have XX”. And your friend/spouse says “What?! You have XX? I can’t believe you have XX.”
Then you say, “I am sick” - and the cycle continues for your defeat.
Your New Scenario
If a doctor says, “You have XX”, let your first words be, “that’s a misdiagnosis. What I have is healing. I am healed and I walk in the healing that Jesus died to give me.”
You may not believe your words in that moment and that’s okay. God says words have power and that the power of life and death is in the tongue. So, speak the healing that you don't see as though it's already happened. Be consistent and you will begin to believe you can have what you say.
Your words will disarm the fear that tries to attack you.
Who pardons all your iniquities
Who heals all your diseases— Psalm 103:3
And maybe, just maybe, don’t tell anyone! This is between you and God. Where two or three are gathered, God is in the midst of them, so if you have at least one person who understands healing and the power of God's Word, then tell that person. But, please, do not tell anyone who will worry because worry is disbelief in God and belief that what God promised He’s not going to provide.
Keep Your Battle Off Social Media
Definitely don't tell the world. You are now in a battle and you don't want several people or all of your Facebook “friends” saying, “Oh my God, I can’t believe you have XX”.
Find one or two scriptures that speak to you and say them over and over again until you believe they're true for you.
Psalm 103 is a Great Start!
1 - Bless the LORD, O my soul,
And all that is within me, bless His holy name.
2 - Bless the LORD, O my soul,
And forget none of His benefits;
3 - Who pardons all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases;
4 - Who redeems your life from the pit,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;
5 - Who satisfies your years with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.
6 - The LORD performs righteous deeds
And judgments for all who are oppressed.
7 - He made known His ways to Moses,
His acts to the sons of Israel.
8 - The LORD is compassionate and gracious,
Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness.
9 - He will not always strive with us,
Nor will He keep His anger forever.
10 - He has not dealt with us according to our sins,
Nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11 - For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
So great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear Him.
12 - As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
13 - Just as a father has compassion on his children,
So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.
So, that’s it. That’s what God shared with me and I am excited.
Years ago, I heard a pastor say share his story. His doctor said he had some form of cancer and as soon as he heard that he knew his next words were critical - and he did not breathe life into that cancer. Instead, he went into prayer, didn’t really tell anyone, and immersed himself in teachings on healing. He did that until he knew without a doubt that he was healed.
That message has always remained with me. I have no idea what you may be going through right now, but I hope this has given you some encouragement. Always remember that when you say, “I am___”, that you are further defining who you are.
So, let your confession be who God says you are and God has called you beautiful, talented, healthy, blessed, prosperous, and amazing.
Believe that and walk in it!
Be Blessed and Have A Fantastic Day!
