The Bible says, "ALL scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine..." (2 Tim. 3:16).

Webster Dictionary defines the word "doctrine" as a belief held or taught. He is saying that "doctrine" is what we believe. This scripture tells us that God's Word is what we should base our doctrine or our believing on.

When it comes to physical, emotional or mental healing, we should base our believing on the written Word of God. The Bible is God speaking to you and me. So let's see what God has to say to us as His children concerning healing.

The word "all" that we just read in 2 Timothy 3:16 is very interesting. Someone once did an analytical study of the word "all," tracing it back to its roots. Guess what he found? After studying the Greek and the Hebrew, the word "all" literally means "all." That tells us that all of what God said in His Word concerning healing is true.

One thing we must realize is that we are to base our faith on the written Word of God, not on the things we may have heard, nor on the tradition of men. Neither are we to base our believing on someone else's experience. We must always look to, and base our believing on, what the Bible says.

There are several reasons why we know it is God's will for us to be healed.

Reason #1: God Does Not Change
Malachi 3:6 says, "I am the Lord, I change not." Hebrews 3:8 says, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever."

What was Jesus doing yesterday? He was healing people! What is Jesus doing today? He is still healing people! What is Jesus going to be doing tomorrow? He is still going to be healing people!

Why? Because He is the same! Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever!

Do you know people who change? I know some people like that. You can talk to them one day and they are excited, you can talk to them the next day, and they have changed. But, thank God, He doesn't change. His Word is still the same.

Reason #2: It Is God's Will
The second reason we know that healing belongs to us is because it is His will.

In the eighth chapter of Matthew we read a story about a man with leprosy. He wanted to be healed of his terrible disease, but he wasn't sure it was the will of God, so he asked Jesus if it was His will for him to be healed.

Jesus answered the question by saying it was His will. As a result of hearing that it was God's will to be healed, the man received his healing immediately (Matt. 8:1-3).

When you know it is God's will to do something in your life it is easy to believe Him for it. When the man with leprosy found out that it was God's will for him to be healed he could believe God for his healing.

Sickness Is of the Devil
Where does sickness come from?

Many people today blame God for sickness, disease, and tragedy. They think that for some reason God brings these things about in their lives to teach them something.

However, when you study the scriptures you will find out that this way of believing is a lie straight from the devil himself! "How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power; who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him" (Acts 10:38).

Jesus went about doing good! Healing is good. These people were oppressed with sickness by the devil, not God. Let's read another scripture.

"The thief [Satan] cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy; I [Jesus] am come that they might have life, and that they might have it [life] more abundantly" ( John 10:10).

Jesus came that we might have life, abundant life. Being sick, having cancer, arthritis, or any other ailment is not abundant living. That is why Jesus came, so we could be free.

Reason #3: We Have Been Redeemed from the Curse
Let's take a look at the third chapter of Galatians.

"Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith" (Gal. 3:13-14).

We read here that you and I are not under the curse. To find out what the curse of the law is, you must go back to the first five books of the Bible, which is called the Pentateuch.

When you read about the curse of the law you will find three major things we are redeemed from.

One is spiritual death, another is poverty, and the third is sickness. I want to encourage you to read the twenty-eighth chapter of Deuteronomy.

As you study Deuteronomy 28 you will find all kinds of sickness and diseases mentioned. Among the list you will see heart attacks, skin problems, allergies, blindness, fevers, tumors, arthritis, tuberculosis, and numerous other diseases.
You need to keep in mind that we have been redeemed from every one of those diseases mentioned. Glory to God!

Deuteronomy 28:61 covers every sickness and every disease. Jesus paid the price so we can be healed. Jesus redeemed us from the curse of sickness! So don't listen to the devil and his lies. Do not be discouraged.

Healing belongs to you as a child of God. We read in God's Word that healing is the children's bread (Matt. 15). That means you! Healing is yours today!
