- Healing -
Is sickness God punishing me?
No. Sickness is from the devil. Healing is from God. (John 10:10, Psalm 100:5, 1 John 3:8
Does God want me healed?
Yes, He loved us so much He sent His son who went about healing all who were sick. John 3:16, Acts 10:38
Healing is in the Bible but is it for us today?
Yes. Jesus bore our sicknesses and diseases and God’s promises to His children are forever.
1 Peter 2:24, Acts 2:39, Luke 1:50
Why aren't all people healed every time they pray?
There are many issues that inhibit manifested healing, such as unbelief, unforgiveness, bitterness, fear, and not walking in love. Matthew 13:58, 1 John 4:18
Why do so many people get healed then the sickness returns?
Because they do not continue to apply the word of God and protect what they hear, say and do. Romans 10:17, Joshua 1:8
Do I believe the doctors report as truth?
No, accept the doctor’s report as fact. Then pray, believe and speak the Word of God, which is truth. When truth is added to facts, the facts have no option but to change.
John 8:32, John 17:13

Is God really concerned about our health?
Jesus spent as much time healing as He did preaching. God loves us. As our Creator He knows what it takes to keep us healthy. Matthew 4:23 - "And Jesus went about all 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."
Why is our health so important to God?
God wants our bodies to be His holy dwelling place; providing Him a clean wholesome place for His residence. (1 Corinthians 6:19, 20 – Your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost...therefore glorify God in your body.)
What is the basic Bible principle for healthful living?
We should try to live lives that glorify God and bring honor to His name, not just in what we eat or drink but in our words, thoughts, and actions as well. (1 Corinthians 10:31 – So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.)
