If you or someone you know is going thru a difficult time and need a healing scripture or bible verse, you’ve come to the right place. Today we are looking at 10 bible verses about healing. Use these in prayer or to help reframe your perspective and draw closer to God
Day 5 Lent – Today marks the fifth day of my Lent Experiment where I am faith blogging thru the 40 days of Lent. As I said in the beginning, this is just something I felt called to do in addition to my Lent Fast.
Sunday – Day of Rest
Since Sundays technically don’t count towards the 40 days of Lent – and well, I typically do try to at least not work during the day – there was no Lent blog post yesterday. We have friends that we have been trying to get to move to our little town. It might just happen! At least, sometime in the future – as they spent the afternoon house hunting in our area. We went to lunch and the kids played.
Good conversation over chips and salsa is always good for the soul.
Let’s Talk Healing
So healing, yeah – this is a hard one. I know so many people – including myself that want God to just heal themselves or someone in their lives.
“Why did God do this?” or “Why isn’t God healing her?” This subject is a difficult one and I wish I had the right answer to give you. I’ve included links below to other blog posts discussing the topic.
A Year to Heal
Last year, my husband was going thru a crazy experience, having his colon removed. There were so many unknowns, challenges, changes and hospital stays. OMG – the awful hospital stays were the worse. During that time – prayer was how I survived. And knowing now how many people were praying for him – I am convinced that’s how he survived.
My husband is still healing. It’s been a year since his first surgery and 8 months since his last surgery. The doctors all says that it takes a year for him to heal to a level of normalcy. So we continue to pray, we need him as normal as possible. (Even though he really was never normal. :))
10 Healing Scriptures – Bible Verses About Healing
Whatever your story is, maybe it’s you who needs healing or someone you love. Here are 10 healing scriptures to use when meditating or praying. I’ve included both the NIV and MSG versions of these bibles verses about healing. I always like reading different translations as sometimes one translation can sometimes spark a whole new understanding of a bible verse.
Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
He heals the heartbroken and bandages their wounds.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
God, treat us kindly. You’re our only hope. First thing in the morning, be there for us! When things go bad, help us out!
LORD, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress.
There’s an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth: A right time for birth and another for death, A right time to plant and another to reap,
A right time to kill and another to heal, A right time to destroy and another to construct, A right time to cry and another to laugh, A right time to lament and another to cheer, A right time to make love and another to abstain, A right time to embrace and another to part, A right time to search and another to count your losses, A right time to hold on and another to let go,A right time to rip out and another to mend, A right time to shut up and another to speak up, A right time to love and another to hate, A right time to wage war and another to make peace.
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
That’s the place where God set up rules and procedures; that’s where he started testing them. God said, “If you listen, listen obediently to how God tells you to live in his presence, obeying his commandments and keeping all his laws, then I won’t strike you with all the diseases that I inflicted on the Egyptians; I am God your healer.”
He said, “If you listen carefully to the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you.”
God, pick up the pieces. Put me back together again. You are my praise!
Heal me, LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.
O my soul, bless God, don’t forget a single blessing! He forgives your sins – every one. He heals your diseases – every one.
Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases…
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Jesus said to her, “Daughter, you took a risk of faith, and now you’re healed and whole. Live well, live blessed! Be healed of your plague.”
He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”
Believing prayer will heal you, and Jesus will put you on your feet. And if you’ve sinned, you’ll be forgiven – healed inside and out.
And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.
