We will all face temptations.
And when we do, we must pray for God’s healing power.
Sicknesses are one of those temptations we may face.
For about a week, I noticed a spike in my blood pressure.
This has never happened before, and as usual, I am concerned.
But that’s the aim of the devil.
He strikes us with diseases to shake the foundation of our faith.
If you are dealing with any form of illness, remember Hezekiah.
Hezekiah was the ruler of Judah. He served God faithfully for years.
And then he fell ill.
God, through Isaiah, told Hezekiah that he should prepare to die.
And immediately, he prayed to God.
He said, “Remember, Lord, how I have walked before you faithfully and with wholehearted devotion and have done what is good in your eyes.”
And God heard his prayers and added 15 more years to his life.
If you are struggling with one illness or the other, there are numerous bible verses for the sick and dying.
God is able to make a change to your health status in a second.
As a medical doctor, I have seen the effect of prayers over sickness.
I have also seen God’s power over many of my patients.
Irrespective of what condition you are dealing with, meditate on bible verses about sickness.
God will come to your aid (Amen).
I have compiled this reassuring Bible verses to strengthen you.
Healing Bible verses for Sickness
He said, “If you listen carefully to the Lord your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, who heals you.”
When this had happened, the rest of the sick on the island came and were cured.
12 so that even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them.
The Lord will keep you free from every disease. He will not inflict on you the horrible diseases you knew in Egypt, but he will inflict them on all who hate you.
When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases,
Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
News about him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed; and he healed them.
He went down with them and stood on a level place. A large crowd of his disciples was there and a great number of people from all over Judea, from Jerusalem, and from the coastal region around Tyre and Sidon, 18 who had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. Those troubled by impure spirits were cured,
and Jesus healed many who had various diseases. He also drove out many demons, but he would not let the demons speak because they knew who he was.
At sunset, the people brought to Jesus all who had various kinds of sickness, and laying his hands on each one, he healed them.
Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.
And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil
Surely he took up our pain
and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
stricken by him, and afflicted.
5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.
Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed;
save me and I will be saved,
for you are the one I praise.
2 Corinthians 12:10
That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Healing scriptures for the sick and dying explained with faith
1. God can heal any disease
Most times, when we are faced with temptations, we become scared
Our hearts become heavy, and we are wondering what’s the next thing to do
Whatever disease you are dealing with from infections, cancer, high blood pressure or high blood sugar, Always remember the case of Hezekiah
It was evident that he was going to die (because God has allowed him to)
But quickly, he ran to God and prayed
He prayed for God’s mercy over his life, and God heard him
Then the word of the Lord came to Isaiah: 5 “Go and tell Hezekiah, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of your father David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will add fifteen years to your life. Isaiah 38
What if he didn’t pray?
Or what if he did not pray quickly?
Don’t be scared of prayer. God can make a miraculous turnaround to your situation
2. Repent and serve the Lord faithfully
Serving God does not make us immune from temptations
In fact, when you do, the devil tries to hurt you and throws even more trials on your path
God has never promised that we would not face persecutions
In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted
And that’s true.
But there is still hope in God’s word that he will rescue us from trials and temptations when we call on him
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13
But that’s not all
Serving God make this promise even easier
God fulfills his word when we serve him with all our heart, soul and body
He is even happier when we hearken diligently to his voice and obey his commandments
And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee
May our heavenly father heal your pains and diseases, and through his grace, return you to good health.
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
