The word of God is like medicine
Proverbs 4 – 20 – 22
20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
The word health in verse 22 – means medicine.
If you go to the doctor and he would prescribe medication, would you take it?
I think nine times out of 10, you would. Most likely, you would get the prescription filled before you even head back home.
If you look in verse 20 where it says that we are to attend to my words, this is just as a horse or donkey pricks up its ears to listen, so we need to prick up your ears to listen to the word of the Lord.
One of the things that God did is that he made us with the ability to tune in to the ear of our hearts, and we can hear the things that are important to God, and we can turn a deaf ear to things that are not important.
Most of our lives we have been trained to listen to negative things. We can choose to think about the things that God wants us to. If we have been around negative things all of our lives, it can seem like it’s impossible to think about the things that God wants us to. I can tell you today from experience that it is possible. We have to meditate upon the things of God. God is not going to do it for us.
I believe one of the reasons that we failed to receive our healing or for that matter anything from God it’s because of the words that are speaking.
The Bible says that death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Proverbs 18 –20-21
- A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.
- Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Every word that we speak we need to make sure is in verse 20 says that we want to reap the harvest of the words that we’re speaking.
Proverbs 18 – 21, says death and life are in the power of time. In Matthew 12 – 36 – 37, it says that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words shall be justified, and by thy words thou shall be condemned.
If you look at the fact that most people don’t realize the power of the words they are speaking, because they are speaking themselves to death. A lot of times, individuals speak the things that have been told, such as a bad report from a doctor. The doctor says you have cancer, and that’s the first thing that you tell people that the doctor says you have cancer you have six months to live. Then some people post this on every prayer chain that they can imagine and find. However, you don’t know how those people are praying. There are a lot of people who don’t know that it is God’s will that we walk in divine healing.
As we get into this study on healing, I challenge you to have an open heart and ask God to reveal you the truth from his word.
3 John – 2
2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
Matthew 4 – 23 – 24
and Jesus went all about all about Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. And his fame went throughout all of Syria: and they brought on to him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatic, and those that have the palsy; and he healed them.
