Whether you are ailing physically, mentally or spiritually you can find comfort in the scriptures. You can know that God wants to heal you. He wants you to be healed.
All suffering and healing begins on a spiritual level and completes its manifestation in the physical realm. As such, no matter what you’re battling, it helps to affirm what God’s will is for you by beginning at the spiritual level.
Here are 7 bible affirmations that you can repeat several times for healing…
At the end of these affirmations is a link to a guided meditation that uses these same affirmations.
God himself is the one who heals me
(Exodus 15:26) God makes it clear that he is the one who initiates and completes your healing.
The Lord restores me to health and heals my wounds
(Jeremiah 30:17) The fact that the Lord restores you to health indicates that health is your natural state. When you get a wound, what does it do? It heals! In your natural state you are healthy and whole. The Lord brings you back to that place.
By his wounds I am healed
(Isaiah 53:5) In a very poetic turn of phrase, Isaiah brilliantly demonstrates that our healing – whether it be physical or spiritual – begins with the healing work of Jesus. Jesus was a healer, and it is through his redemptive work on the cross that we can begin to understand what healing is and experience it to the depths of our being.
The Lord heals all my diseases
(Psalm 103:3) No matter what is causing you dis-ease, to not be at ease, the Lord heals it ALL. He’s not just interested in your spiritual condition. He demonstrated that through Jesus when he went around healing every disease and sickness (Matthew 4:23).
God strengthens and upholds me
(Isaiah 41:10) God is like a magical elixir and crutch. He does whatever he needs to do to get you back up on your feet. He’s there every step of the way, and he knows sometimes those steps can be difficult.
I use wise words to speak healing
(Proverbs 12:18) You can do your part in helping yourself and others heal by speaking words of healing rather than dwelling on illness and disease. Instead of saying, “I’m sick”, you can say words like, “I feel like my body is fighting off something.” Your words can bring healing to your own physical body and to your relationships as well!
A joyful heart is good medicine
(Proverbs 17:22) You can do a lot to assist and speed your healing by focusing on being positive, fun and light hearted. It’s more difficult to do when you’re not feeling well, but it is possible. The human spirit can endure a sick body, but who can bear a crushed spirit? (Proverbs 18:14)
