No matter how well we know a subject, if we don't continue to practice or review what we have learned, we will forget some things. There are certain subjects we need to continually brush up on, and healing is one of them.

No matter how well we know a subject, if we don't continue to practice or review what we have learned, we will forget some things. A person may have acquired spelling, math, or computer skills, but if he hasn't used them in a while, when he does try to use them, he may discover that his skills are rusty.

The same thing can happen in spiritual matters. You see, many Christians know about the subject of healing, but they're not as proficient in healing as they could be—simply because they haven't practiced what they know. In other words, they don't continually study the subject and act on what they've learned.

There are certain subjects we need to continually brush up on, and healing is one of them.

The Bible teaches that there are many ways to receive healing: through the healing anointing; through a manifestation of the gifts of the Spirit, through the laying on of hands; through the Name of Jesus; and so forth. In this article, I want to study the life and power that reside in God's Word. God's Word is the never-failing remedy for whatever you need. No matter the sickness or disease, God's Word has the answer for you!
My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they [God's words] are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
(Prov. 4:20-22)
According to this passage of Scripture, what is health to all man's flesh? God's words are! Does this passage say, "Attend to My words, for they are health unto your spirit"? No! It says God's Word is health to your flesh!

You see, God is interested in our flesh. He wants His Spirit dwelling in a body that is healthy and whole, because He wants what is on the inside (His Spirit) to be demonstrated or manifested on the outside.

In John 6:63, Jesus tells us that God's Word is full of life—of healing, health, and happiness. It's full of whatever you need at any given moment. God's Word is where your answer is! "The words that I [Jesus] speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life" (John 6:63).

Yes, there are powerful moves of God's Spirit and awesome physical manifestations of God's power. But God's power is also in His Word! Not only does His Word contain power; it contains life.

Proverbs 4:21 says,
Let them [God's words] not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
The phrase "Do not let them depart from your eyes" doesn't mean we are supposed to walk around with our Bible hanging down from our forehead over our eyes! If we did walk around like that, we would bump into things, and we would never get anything accomplished! But that phrase does mean that when we are facing the circumstances of life—sickness, disease, financial lack, and so forth—we are to look to the Word of God instead of looking at the circumstances.

If you've been attacked with sickness, you can probably look at your body and see that an illness is present, or you can feel the presence of that condition. But you aren't to respond to that! Instead, look to the Word of God, which says, "You are healed and made whole" (Isa. 53:5; I Peter 2:24), and respond to what God's Word says!

Many people go to God and respond to His Word in the bad times, but in the good times, they don't respond to God. They don't give God's Word the same attention they did when they were going through a test or trial. Then, when they find themselves in bad times again, they often falter.

We need to respond to God's Word in the bad times and in the good times! In His Word, God tells us what to do and how to act in every situation and circumstance of everyday life. He also tells us how to receive healing and how to stay healed. God's Word instructs us on how to get out of our difficulties and troubles and how to stay delivered!

God has given us His Word, but we have to act on it! If we want to live a successful Christian life, we have a part to play.

There is power, health, and life in the Word of God! We must hide God's Word in our heart (Ps. 119:11) so that when we face a test or trial, we will take the Word of God and walk on through to victory.

The Word has come to heal us and to set us free. Psalm 107:20 says, "He [God] sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions." Healing belongs to us!

We must know what the Word of God says for ourselves in order to appropriate it in our lives. And no matter how much we know about God's Word, we must never forget the basics.

You see, no matter how much we grow spiritually, we will never outgrow the basics of God's Word. And we must continually review what we know on the subject of healing if we want to stay sharp, so to speak, and successfully achieve our objective of walking in divine health.
