Seeing Yourself Whole
When the Word of God is allowed to be engrafted into you, it creates in you an image of what is already reality in the spirit realm. When you speak that Word from your heart, then faith gives substance to the promises of God. Those images become stronger every time you speak your faith.

God's Word and your continual affirmation and agreement with what God has said create a healing image in you. The Word of God perfects that image until you begin to see yourself well. The Word engrafted into you is infusing its life into you (John 6:63; Romans 8:11).

This was demonstrated by the woman with the issue of blood, who followed Jesus saying, "If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole" (Mark 5:28). The verb tense is made more clearly in The Amplified Bible, which says, "For she kept saying, 'If I only touch His garments, I shall be restored to health.'"

This woman hoped to be healed as she pressed through the crowd. She continued to speak until she saw herself well. Her hope was that she would be healed, although she didn't feel or look healed. But she began filling her hope with faith-filled words: "I shall be restored to health…I shall be restored to health…I shall be…I shall be…."

I'm sure her head demanded, "When? You don't look any better." So she answered human reasoning by filling her hope with a faith image: When I touch His garments. Those words penetrated her spirit and she began to see herself well.

Images of despair and defeat gave way to faith-filled words. When she touched Jesus' garments, her touch of faith made a demand on the covenant of God and on the healing anointing that was upon Jesus. As faith gave substance to her hope, healing was manifested in her body.

Hope is a goal setter, but it lacks substance until it is filled with faith. Faith gave substance to her hope, laid claim to what was hers according to the promises of His covenant, and brought manifestation of her healing. "Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole." Jesus told her (v. 34). "Whosoever shall say...he shall have..." (Mark 11:23). These are Bible principles of believing and calling for things that are not yet manifest.

The Language of Health
The words you speak are vital to your health and well being. I believe there are some diseases that will never be cured unless people learn to speak the language of health that the body understands. That language of health is the engrafting of God's Word into you by giving voice to His Word with your own mouth.

Your words become either a curse or a blessing to you. I am convinced from my study of the Word of God that your own words can change your immune system for better or worse. (See James 3:2-7)

Proverbs 18:21 tells us that "Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof." In a recent study, men and women sixty-five and older were asked to rate their health as excellent, good, fair or poor.

The study showed that those who rated their health as poor were four to five times more likely to die within four years as those who rated themselves as excellent. This was true even when examinations showed the respondents to be in comparable health.

People who have an image of themselves being in poor health will talk about poor health. Even though they may be in good health, they seem to live out the reality of the image they have of themselves even unto death.

On the other hand, I believe that people who continually affirm the Word in faith will build into their immune systems a supernatural anointing that is capable of eliminating sickness and disease in a natural manner.

Give It Time
It takes time to develop faith to operate in these principles, so don't let anyone put you under condemnation for going to doctors or having an operation. You must operate on your level of faith, but don't stay on that level forever. Continue in God's Word until you develop faith in the healing power of God's Word.

Confess the promises of God's Word concerning your health and healing daily. Confess the Word audibly over your body two or three times a day. Confess it with authority. Confessing God's Word is a way you can fellowship with the Lord and increase your faith at the same time.

Take God's Word on a regular basis, just as you would take any other medicine. Practice God's medicine; it is life to you and health to your flesh.
