Five Healing Scriptures That Every Believer Can Memorize And Personalize
In May 2011 I was informed that conceiving would be close to impossible and that if I conceived, I wouldn’t carry the pregnancy to term. After two years of struggling with symptoms related to fibroid tumors I opted to have fibroid removal surgery. This surgery was recommended to help improve my chances of conception and ultimately improve my quality of life.
The surgery was not as successful as planned and I ended up with scarring which would further complicate my chances of becoming pregnant. I was admitted to the hospital following the surgery which was originally supposed to be an outpatient procedure due to complications. During the stay my childhood Pastor came by to visit with me. She prayed with me and she gave me a CD by Dodie Osteen entitled, “Words of Healing.”
I never encountered the Word in such a way prior to listening to this CD. Dodie Osteen speaks about her healing from cancer but she also speaks about the steps that she had to take in order to claim her healing before she received it. She also talked about the importance of the Word and how she applied it to her situation. Finally she recites multiple scriptures pertaining to healing. I listened to this CD everyday for months following my surgery. It helped me to tune out the words of doubt that were spoken to me and the words swirling in my own mind. I’m sure you know the rest of the story because I have a vibrant three-year old!
I have, however, been met with other health challenges since that time including a diagnosis of Graves Disease in February of 2018. Despite these challenges my faith in God won’t allow me to doubt the promises of God because I’ve seen Him work on my behalf. I know that He is a healer. I know that He is a miracle worker.
Keeping that CD on repeat taught me the importance of speaking the Word of God. I want to encourage you to do the same and to commit scripture that is relevant to your situation to memory. Pray the scripture. Write the scripture down and post it in prominent places. These are all things that I have done and continue to do. The following scriptures stood out to me the most on the CD because I was able to memorize them and personalize them. I would like to share them with you. I have also added the personal twist that I put on each scripture as needed.
