Jeremiah 9:23 Thus says the LORD:

​​​“Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,

​​Let not the mighty man glory in his might,

​​Nor let the rich man glory in his riches;

24 ​​But let him who glories glory in this,

​​That he understands and knows Me,

​​That I am the LORD, exercising loving kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth.

​​For in these I delight,” says the LORD.

There are those who “believe” HE is and there are others who know HE is and I fall into the latter group.  There are those who believe FATHER can heal but I know HE heals at a personal level.  In 1984 I contracted hepatitis from shellfish, specifically shrimp I had eaten at the Hilton Hotel in New Jersey while on a business trip.  It turned out to be the worst case the doctor had seen.  I sought FATHER about why I got sick since I had been believing HIM for Divine health and HE replied “You are void of My Word.”  Huh?  I studied Scripture, read Christian books, listened to teaching tapes yet I was void of HIS Word?  HE responded, “When was the last time you studied My Word in the area of healing?”   Oops, too long.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. 9 The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

FATHER’s Word has the power within itself to cause itself to come to pass and I had not exercised faith in the area of health and healing for some time.  We can become dull of hearing if we allow ourselves to become lazy in meditating on the wondrous works of Our Heavenly Father.  We can get caught up with our daily affairs and forget the importance of meditating on HIS Word day and night.

Romans 10:17  So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of GOD.

I repented of my failure to meditate on HIS Word in this crucial area.  In response, HE instructed me to focus on healing Scriptures, read Healing the Sick by T.L. Osborn, and listen to a tape on ‘healing’ that I had in my library.  In 11 days I was cured of hepatitis.  The doctor had expected it to take at least 8 weeks to recover (if I didn’t die first).  I learned a valuable lesson-  You can’t operate in faith unless you know HIM in the area of your need.  HE and HIS WORD are ONE.  If you don’t know HIM as your Healer, you will probably not be made whole beyond the natural means.  If you don’t know HIM as your Provider, then you will only do as well as your financial value to the current system.

My doctor could not explain the miracle but did not want to discuss the Spiritual.  The people I worked with were surprised and amazed.  Most of all, I was grateful for HIS loving kindness toward me.  Some people believe HE is a Healer, I know HE is.  As Psalm 103 declares:

1 Bless the LORD, O my soul;

​​And all that is within me, bless His holy name!

2 ​​Bless the LORD, O my soul,

​​And forget not all His benefits:

3 ​​Who forgives all your iniquities,

​​Who heals all your diseases,

4 ​​Who redeems your life from destruction,

​​Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies,

5 ​​Who satisfies your mouth with good things,

​​So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Jesus Who is the expressed character of FATHER confirmed FATHER’S Divine Intent of Love by doing the same:

Matthew 4:23   And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.

In addition, Jesus empowered the disciples:

Matthew 10:1   And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

As we take on the fullness of FATHER’S Divine Nature, we should expect the same opportunity and results.  Talk about changing the healthcare paradigm….
