And sometimes it seems even worse for Christians who believe in healing, because we know our covenant rights. We know Jesus Himself took our infirmities and bore our sickness (Matt. 8:17), and we know that by His stripes we are healed (2 Pet. 2:24), but we're still sick!

If that’s you, I want to encourage you today and remind you of these four things:

1) God is, and always has been, a healing God.

Under the old covenant, your Heavenly Father said, “I am your healer” (Ex. 15:26). Under our new and better covenant, Jesus bore all sickness for you and healed you on the Cross 2000 years ago. You could say God sealed His promise of healing in Jesus. Healing is His nature – it’s always His will for you. You are not “the sick trying to get well." Your covenant, bought by the blood of Jesus, says you are the healed, just the same as you are the righteousness of God in Him (2 Cor. 5:21). You’re not waiting to be healed. To God, it’s a done deal. Already bought and paid for.

2) It’s easy for God to heal you, whether from a cold or cancer.

What’s hopeless or incurable to humans is never hopeless or incurable to Him. He knows exactly how to heal, and He always wants to do it. Settle this is your spirit once and for all.

3) He just wants you to believe Him.

Healing is appropriated by faith (by believing what He has said in His Word). That’s the fight of faith – to believe what He has said more than what you see or feel. It’s not hard, but it requires more Word than circumstances. Symptoms don't change the Word of God or your covenant of healing.

4) You have the power!

It’s so easy to “talk sick” when you feel horrible or you’re facing a scary diagnosis. But you can choose your words – right here, right now! The Bible says your tongue is a mighty force (Prov. 18:21, James 3:5-6), that you can have what you say (Mark 11:23), and that you can call for what God has promised (Rom. 4:17). Start saying what you want, not what you have! This is how to release your faith for healing. You must agree with God by saying what God says. I have written a new Declaration Series book to help you do just that: “Speaking God’s Word over Your Health & Healing.”

Be encouraged today! You are not even close to being defeated! In all these things, you are more than a conqueror through Him who loves you and paid for your healing (Rom. 8:37). Greater is He that's in you than all the symptoms in the world! (1 John 4:4).

Today’s situation is temporary. Keep believing God. Do everything you can in the natural to rest and fortify your body, but that's not the only arsenal you have. You have a healing covenant, and you have faith in God.

Today, I called you healed in Jesus’ Name!
