Faith Filled Friday: Bible Verses for Healing

April 22, 2022

As Christians we often pray for healing, sometimes for ourselves and sometimes for others. There are plenty of instances in the Bible when Jesus healed someone. Since I have multiple medical problems I decided to compile a few verses that I could read to remind me that God still heals.

Psalms 30:2 O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

This verse was particularly reassuring to me since I have occasionally been rather loud and angry at God. Thankfully, he still listened to me.

Psalms 146:8 The Lord openeth the eyes of the blind; the Lord raiseth them that are bowed down; the Lord loveth the righteous.

Psalm 147:3 He healeth the broken in heart and bindeth up their wounds.

It’s reassuring to know that God can heal a broken heart as well as our physical ailments.

Jeremiah 17:14 Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me and I shall be saved, for thou art my praise.

I think the word ‘save’ in this verse means to keep us from our worries, fears, problems, and so on. We only need to ask for salvation of our sins and allow Jesus to come into our hearts one time in order to be saved.

Matthew 9:35 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.

I’m not sure what diseases and illness were most prevalent back then. It’s comforting to know that Jesus could heal any and all of them.

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy and laden, and I will give you rest.

God will carry our burdens so we can have some rest. However, I tend to lug my burdens around instead of letting him do the heavy work.

Mark 5:35 He said unto her, ‘Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace and be whole of thy plague.’

Luke 6:18, 19 And they that were vexed with unclean spirits and they were healed. And the whole multitude sought to touch him; for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all.

The word virtue means power. Does that mean healing was very tiring for the Lord to do?

1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness; by whose stripes ye were healed.

A verse to remind us of giving our thanks to the Lord.

Psalm 30:12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee forever.
