"I am the Lord that healeth thee"

Many years ago I was totally paralyzed, but was healed. With all the scare of Covid going on and the threat of things getting worse, I thought it might be helpful to gather some scriptures that you can cut out of the paper and use to believe for your own healing. Healing doesn't have to be just physical. Many people need emotional, spiritual, mental and social healing. Whatever kind of healing you need, these scriptures can be your comfort.
When I was paralyzed, I can remember the devil trying to plant fear inside my mind. As my husband picked be up out of the front seat of our car to carry me into the hospital, I heard a very plain and distinct voice that said: "You'll be in a wheel chair the rest of your life". Immediately, I said, (out loud), "No, I won't. God will heal me". By his grace, I was healed. When I left the hospital nine days later, my doctor who said he didn't believe in God, walked me to my car and before I got inside he said, "Well, I have to admit there was someone besides me who healed you. I never thought it would happen, but it did. There must be a God."
I will never forget that doctor or what he said. Most of you will remember cassette tapes. Well, at the time, I had a cassette tape with nothing but healing scriptures on it and I listened to it day and night. I couldn't move a muscle, but someone put it on "repeat" and if it ever stopped I'd have them start it back up. I believed those scriptures and I still believe them. So, if you're sick, or at dis-ease for any reason, call on Jesus because He is an ever-present help in the time of need.
Following are some scriptures I think you'll find helpful.
"Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise" (Jeremiah 17:14).
"Faith comes by hearing, and hearing comes by the Word of God" (Romans 10:17).
"When I am afraid, I will trust in You" (Psalm 56"3).
"I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand" (Psalm 40:1-3).
"... If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee" (Exodus 15:26).
"Who forgives all thine iniquities; who heals all thy diseases" (Psalm 103:3).
"Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise" (Jeremiah 17:14).
"Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him" ( James 5:14-15).
"Beloved, I wish above all things that thou may prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth" (3 John 1:2).
"He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds" (Psalm 147:3).
It's easy to be overwhelmed when we are sick or distressed, but God has given us his Word as something tangible to hold onto. Don't give up. God will be your strength and your comfort as well as your healer.
