Lord Heal Me! "I'm Sick"

Psalm 103:2,3  Praise the Lord, I tell myself and never forget the good things he does for me.  He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.

I.  God is a healer


How do we know? 4 ways:
  • We see it in His character
Jeremiah 17:14  Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.

Exodus 15:26b  for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

  • The Ministry of Jesus
  • The Ministry of Apostles
  • Through promise of eternal life
Revelation 21:1a, 3-4

How does God heal?

  1. Through natural creation (the body has the ability to heal itself)
  2. Through spiritual renewal (being healed from faith alone)                     I Corinthians 11:28-30
  3. Through gifted people (the Lord puts people in place to aid in the healing. Doctors and nurses)
  4. Through supernatural means (God intervenes and heals, the power of prayer is DIVINE)!
  5. Through ultimate victory (holding on to God's faith and knowing the best is yet to come).
II.  Sickness is real and very much of our reality until the END.

7 Things to do when you're sick

  1. Take care of your body and spirit.  (Do what you CAN do. Eat right, don't smoke or do drugs because your body will begin to reject it).  I Corinthians 9:26-27a:  Discipline your body because it's a gift from God.  Take care of it, your body is your temple and where the Holy Spirit dwells.
  2. Confess your sins (it's those 'secret sins' that make you sick)  James 5:16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.  The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
  3. Ask God to heal you.  Psalm 6:2  Be merciful to me, Lord, for I am faint; O Lord, heal me, for my bones are in agony.
  4. Ask people to pray for you  (people are afraid to ask for prayer because they 'dont want people in their business' or they are 'private'.  Are they private or prideful.  Humble yourself for God.  James 5:14-15  14 Is any one of you sick?  He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord.  15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up.  If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.
  5. Let other People help you
  6. Trust God's character and power (remember, in the process, he will heal or deliver you in His time)
  7. Be grateful for your healing  Ephesians 5:20 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, ALWAYS give thanks for everything to God the Father.

PEOPLE, WE LIVE IN AN ATMOSPHERE WHERE WE ARE APPRECIATIVE OF NOTHING!  BE THANKFUL TO GOD, BE THANKFUL FOR EVERYTHING YOU OWN, RENT, HAVE, USE, BREATHE, EVERYTHING!  THANK HIM IN YOUR THOUGHTS, IN YOUR PRAYERS AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, IN YOUR FAITH
