Posted on 10/12/2012 12:03:36 AM PDT by Frank Broom
One of the most important things people overlook in dealing with sickness is what they speak out of their mouth. You can't just speak anything because your words have an effect on your body. In the book of James he says, if you offend not in word, you are able to bridle your whole body. He also goes on to say your tongue is like the rudder of a ship, so if you want to go from sickness to healing then you are going to have to set your tongue to healing and not sickness. In 1Peter 3:10 he says, if you want to see good keep your tongue from evil. That's a principle so you could also say, if you want to see healing keep your tongue from sickness. And the best way to do that is to put God's word in your mouth concerning your healing. Because Proverbs 4:22 says, God's word is health(medicine) to all your flesh. God's word in your mouth is medicine to all your flesh.
Now somebody might be saying prove that with the word, remember Abraham and his wife Sarah the scripture says, he was old and his body was dead(not functioning in a manner to have a son) and his wife Sarah was barren, but God said they would have a son together and that Abraham's seed would be as numerous as the stars in the sky. How did God change their bodies to carry out what He spoke, He changed their names. He gave them something to say that was in line with what He spoke. Abraham means-Father of a multitude and Sarah means-Princess of the multitude. Notice what Psalm 103:5 says, He satisfies your mouth with good things; so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's. Notice that scripture doesn't say He satisfies you. He gives you something to say to change your body.
Somebody may be saying, yes, but I need a miracle, well in Luke 1 the angel came to Mary, a virgin, and told her she was going to have a son and they talked for a little while, but notice that angel didn't depart until Mary spoke in line with what he said, "Be it unto me according to thy word". It wasn't until Mary spoke that the miracle took place. Now, you can't deny that the word has a lot to say about your words having an effect on your body. Especially God's word and some say they don't believe in speaking God's word when the Bible says, it is powerful and has the power to save. That word save in the greek also means heal. That's why the word is medicine, because there's healing power in the word of God. So, I encourage you to see what the word has to say about your healing like-"By whose stripes ye were healed" 1Peter 2:24, or "Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law" Galatians 3:13, or Himself took my infirmities and bore my sicknesses (you have to make it personal). And put your hope and faith in what God says and don't give up it is going to take time. But, you have to start somewhere.

Thanks Frank. I needed to refocus; your post helps.
My mother and I have both used this principle to be healed of cancer. I had surgery and my mom had no treatment at all. Both of our situations baffled the doctors.
God’s Word is powerful. The biggest obstacle I dealt with was fear. Sometimes my prayers were for healing; other times they were to overcome the fear and for increased faith.
God is good.
Thank you plsjr for taking the time to read this article and I’m glad help was a help to you. Thanks!
Thank you alnick for sharing that, I have experienced healing also by the word and just wanted to share it. Thanks for reading and for your comment. Thanks!
Thank you Auntie Mame I’m glad you enjoyed it. Thanks!
I can not say that you are wrong in your idea but i think James was talking about the fact that if a man can control his tongue it would also help him to control his fleshly sins.
It is a sin to see some one who is thristy and not give them something to drink.
So if you are cussing some one because they are not up to your standard it would be much easier to pass them by even though you should stop and help them.
You can see that James was referring to what Jesus had already told us about helping others.
We can claim to have all kinds of faith but if we can not do these simple little things that Jesus said to do then maybe that faith is not really faith.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
It is our hearts that need the healing, our bodies will soon be just a pile of dust.
