Healing: The Priority of the Word and Praise

Friday November 16, 2012

In Acts 4:23 we see healing as a response to political persecution. Our country needs a healing revival. We start by hearing and receiving the Word of God on healing. The Word of God must be a priority in your life. It’s your responsibility to find it for yourself, because the Word is life and healing to you (Luke 5:15; Luke 6:17; Prov. 4:20-23). Step 1 is to get your priorities right by preferring the Word over current events, the doctor’s report, or whatever is coming against you. Pastor Dale shares a powerful testimony  of two miracle healings as a result of a woman’s hunger for the Word. The Word must be in your daily life so that you have life and health. Another step is to not be anxious, but to pray and supplicate with thanksgiving, letting your requests be made known to God (Phil. 4:6-8). Meditate and think on the Word and good things, not on things that won’t help you. Praise, thank, and worship God until the peace of God comes that will guard your heart and mind. Even a “little bit” of the Word can bring life and healing to you. The crippled man in Acts 14:7-8 had faith to be healed, but it wasn’t until he acted on it that the man was healed. Get the Word for yourself, thank and praise God, and then act on the Word.
