Topic: Healing By The Word

Memory verse
Psalm 107:20 – He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

Fire Scripture
Matthew 8: 5-10

The word of God is your best health insurance. You must, therefore, pay attention to the word for it to do you good. You must focus on it and you must concentrate on the part of it that has to do with your situation. This word of God is powerful. It is medicine, health-giving, life-giving and an effective cure-all.

Most of us underestimate the power of our words. When we fall sick, we talk about the sickness as if we own it and claim ownership of it. We say, “My headache, my stomach ache, my back ache.” All these expressions are powerful and they reinforce whatever it is that is wrong in our body system.

Beloved, I want you to take a look at the Fire Scripture for today. When the centurion said his servant was grievously tormented, Jesus said, “I will come and heal him.” Then the centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof, but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed” (Matthew 8: 6-8).

The centurion must have heard about Jesus. He knew that just a simple word from Him would heal his servant, and when Jesus actually spoke the word, it was so. We can also activate our healing by believing totally in the word of God. Today’s memory verse says, “He sent His word and it healed them, and delivered them from their destruction” (Psalm 107:20).

The word is packed with healing, restoration and life. God wants you and me to receive our healing through His word as a result of the finished work of Jesus Christ at Calvary. Arise and shine. That bed of sickness will not swallow you. The word of God on the pages of the Bible is as potent and wonder-working as the word Jesus spoke to heal the centurion’s servants and many others in His earthly ministry.

I encourage you to rise up in faith, gather as many healing scriptures as possible, begin to pray with them, claiming all the healing promises for yourself or the person you are interceding for. If you have faith, you will surely see the glory of God!

Motivational Quote
The great concern is not whether you are sick, but whether you are content with your sickness.

Prophetic Word
As the Lord lives, that bed of affliction shall not be your grave, in the name of Jesus.

HYMN: He Healeth Me, O Blessed Truth

1. He Healeth me, O blessed truth,
His mighty Word renews my youth,
By His own pow’r from sickness free,
My precious Saviour healeth me.

He healeth me, He healeth me,
By His own Word He healeth me;
His faithful witness I would be,
For by His Word He healeth me.

2. Sometimes thro’ testin times I go,
Dark seems the way, and full of woe;
But in the furnace tho’ I be,
My great Physician healeth me.

3. Lord, I would spread this truth abroad,
The mighty power of Thy word;
It’s just the same, the blind now see,
And demons at Thy presence flee.

4. For sin and sickness doth depart,
When thou dost reign within the heart;
And I from all the curse an free,
Since Christ, my Savior, healeth me.


1. Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed, in the name of Jesus.
2. Save me, and I shall be saved; for thou art my praise, in the name of Jesus.
3. Agents of sickness in my body, die, in the name of Jesus.

4. Power of the Holy Ghost, fall upon me and make me whole, in the name of Jesus.
5. By the word of the Lord, I receive my healing by fire, in the name of Jesus.
6. Thank you Jesus, for sending Your word to heal me, in the name of Jesus.
7. Any evil arrow in my body, get out and die, in the name of Jesus.
