Health is a complete state of physical, mental and emotional well-being. For a man to say he is healthy, he has to be complete physically, emotionally, mentally and free of diseases or sicknesses. Just as the way God is interested in our spiritual growth and our walk with Him, He is also interested in other areas of our lives particularly our health.
God cures, mends, or make whole or restores to health. He is also called the Great Physician. We all have many physicians known as doctors around us, but they only treats temporally. That is why hospitals will keep having patients, but God gives permanent healing from any kind of sickness or disease. No wonder why in Heaven, there is no form of sickness or suffering. Also, we usually hear doctors say that we care, God cures”.
God heals through His word. Psalms 107:20 says
“He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions”.
God’s word both rhema and logos can act as a means for healing. A practical example is Luke 7 when Jesus healed the Centurion’s servant which he told Jesus to just say the word and his servant will be healed. The Centurion was a man of authority, and he understands the power in words and in giving commands. He understood that Jesus is also a man of authority and that He has the power to say the word and his servant will be healed.
God has placed you in Christian families as a medium for emotional healing. Our Christian families are not only our immediate families but our fellow believers in Jesus Christ. Humans are social beings. We tend to function well when we are among people who encourage and motivate us – people of like minds. That is why the Bible tells you not to forsake the gathering of the brethren (Hebrews 10:25; James 5:14).
The Great Physician has given you guidelines to follow in Exodus 15:26 to walk in good health. It says,
“And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee”.
