Medical science aids healing through physical means by administering medicine into the physical body. God's divine healing is spiritual. It is administered through the human spirit (1 Cor. 2:9-12).

Psalm 107:20 tells us that God sent His Word and healed them. Notice that it didn't say that God sent His Word to heal but sent His Word and health. God considers it done. God is no respector of persons, but He does respect faith in His Word.
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 are life unto those that find them, and healing to all their flesh.
(Prov. 4:20-22)
First of all, notice that God's Word is life. It is also health, or medicine to all your flesh. God's Word will heal your body, but it does it through spiritual means. Healing can be received into the human spirit through the Word. Once it is conceived there, it permeates the physical body.

Just as you would take medicine into your physical body to aid healing by physical means, so you must receive God's Word concerning healing into your spirit for supernatural healing.

The Engrafted Word
God's Word is perfect spiritual law (Ps. 19:7). It is supernatural medicine. It works through the human spirit and is a spiritual cure, but like any other medicine, it must be applied on a regular basis.

You must speak God's Word to your individual circumstance or situation - someone else can't do it for you. James 1:21 admonishes us to receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. Once the Word of God is engrafted into your spirit, it produces results in the body as well.

Jesus said, If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye shall, and it shall be done unto you (John 15:7). When God's Word becomes engrafted or infused into your spirit it has become a part of you.

It cannot be separated from you! It is not only your thought and affirmation, it is you! The Word made flesh. Then your flesh will reflect the life of that Word. When God's Word concerning healing takes root in your flesh, it becomes greater than disease and healing is the result.

The image that the Word creates in you is already a reality in the spirit realm. When you speak God's Word from your heart, then faith gives substance to the promises of God. Your faith frames your words daily. Jesus made it very plain - "a good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things..." (Matt. 12:35).

In the first Chapter of Genesis you will notice that every time God spoke, creation took place! Words are the carriers of faith! The worlds were framed by the word of God (Heb. 11:3). Without words, there wouldn't have been any creation. Your words create images and eventually you will live out the reality of that image.

Every time you speak your faith, it creates a stronger image inside you. If it is healing you desire, the healing image is created by God's Word and your continual affirmation and agreement with it. Eventually that image will be perfected by the Word of God and you will begin to see yourself well. When the Word is engrafted into you it infuses its life into you (John 6:63; Rom. 8:11).

Faith Possesses Reality
An example of this is found in Mark 5:25-28, where the woman with the issue of blood said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. She continued to speak until she saw herself well!

This woman hoped to be healed as she pressed through the crowd. The Amplified Bible says: "For she kept saying, 'If I only touch His garments, I shall be restored to health.'"

That hope was her goal, but she didn't feel healed, and she certainly didn't look healed. But she began filling hope with faith filled words, "I shall be restored to health. I shall be restored to health. I shall be...I shall be…."

I am sure her head said "When? You don't look any better; you are not any better!"

Then she began to answer human reasoning by being more specific - "When I touch His garment I shall be restored to health."

She was filling her hope with a faith image. She set her own point of contact to receive her healing. Her words penetrated her spirit and she began to see herself well. That "grow worse" image of despair and defeat had to give way to the faith filled words that came from her own mouth.

When she touched His clothes, her touch of faith made a demand on the covenant of God and the anointing that was upon Jesus.

What she was saying was her faith talking. When she acted out what she said and touched His garment, that faith that was in her became the substance of her hope, and her words became a living reality.

Faith Gives Substance to Hope
Notice it was her faith that made a demand on the healing anointing that was upon Jesus. Faith gave substance to her hope and healing was manifested in her body.

Faith is the substance of things hoped for (Heb. 11:1). Hope is important but hope lacks substance until filled with faith. Hope is only a goal-setter. Her hope was to be healed, but hope didn't heal her! Faith gave substance to her hope.

Her faith gave substance to and brought about the manifestation of healing that was already hers because of the covenant. But she had to call for it. Look at the words of Jesus:

• All things are possible to them that believe...(Mark 9:23).
• If you had faith as a seed you should say...(Luke 17:6).
• He that believeth hath...(John 3:36).
• Whosoever shall say, he shall have...(Mark 11:23-24).

It is the Bible principle of believing and calling for things that are not yet manifest. The words of Jesus ring very clear concerning this matter. Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole...(Mark 5:34).

Giving voice to your faith in God's Word can also make you whole.
