What the Bible Says About Healing
There is a practical application to all of this. The Lord has gifted your body with the remarkable ability to heal itself under the right conditions. Fact is, you need to feed it wholesome food, drink clean water and breathe in pure air.
Sadly, finding these things is getting more challenging in our fallen world as toxic chemicals have overtaken our soil and atmosphere. In spite of our efforts (and great expense) to purchase natural products for a healthy home, we still get sick. But, take heart, God is here to bless you with His healing touch when you need it! The healing Scripture below testifies to that.
Cry out to Him and seek this precious gift today! Come before His throne with confidence and courage.
Before we meditate on our favorite Bible verses about healing Scriptures, we need to put what God’s Word says about health into context with these two key passages.
- “Later Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, ‘See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you.'” John 5:14
- “Faith without works is useless.” James 2:20
Essentially, once God does His part, we must do our part! He heals us and we maintain the healing!
We should NOT see sickness and disease as a sin issue. From what Scripture tells us, neither does Jesus. Otherwise, why would He say this in John 9:3?
- “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “But this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.”
The point that our Lord is making here is that, when we sin, we put ourselves in harm’s way. Reckless behavior, misuse of medicines and deliberate poor food and drink choices (i.e. all “sins”) will damage our body and will make us more susceptible to get sick.
This is why it’s so crucial to put faith to our deeds and put deeds to our faith!
Our hope and prayer is that these Bible verses about healing Scriptures inspire you, encourage you, and help build up your most holy faith. As you seek God for health and healing, do your best to learn how to live a well-balanced life and make the proper abundant life-giving choices.

Journey Toward the Abundant Life & Bible Health
Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it ABUNDANTLY!” ~ John 10:10
Living the abundant life is your God-given privilege, and helping you experience it was Christ’s driving purpose behind His ministry. And it has been one of our driving passions since becoming Christians to better understand it. The deeper we go into God’s Word, the clearer things become, and we keep going back to this concept of “Biblical Health.”
The World Health Organization defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” This, of course, is coming from a secular and medical establishment. So, it shouldn’t surprise us that it lacks mention of other key components to our lives. Namely, the spiritual component, which is at its core the very foundation of our physical, mental and social well being.
Of course, there are other areas to our lives that all play a vital role in our overall health. In fact, we believe there are SEVEN areas and that it is our moral duty to take care of them all. By doing so, we unlock what we refer to as “Biblical Health,” the state of enjoying balance and prosperity in all aspects of life.
We believe that every area of our lives fall into one (or more) of these categories, and, YES, it should be your goal to master every discipline.
- Spiritual Abundance – Living with divine purpose and enjoying a thriving relationship with your Creator.
- Physical Abundance – Maintaining a strong, healthy body free of disease and chronic symptoms.
- Mental Abundance – Being intellectually sound and having the Mind of Christ.
- Emotional Abundance – Enjoying peace and experiencing a balance of positive feelings.
- Financial Abundance – With your needs being met, not living in debt and having extra to be BIG givers.
- Occupational Abundance – Finding purpose and truly enjoying the work of your hands.
- Social Abundance – Fostering deep, mutually beneficial relationships on a daily basis.
Each of these are connected to each other and, like a chain, you are only as strong as your weakest link. If your physical body isn’t performing how it should, it’s going to weigh you down emotionally and cause strain in your relationships. If your job isn’t going well or you aren’t working up to your full potential, your financial health will be impacted and your mental health will be strained by raising your stress levels.
REMEMBER: Great habits are formed daily and require consistent commitment. So, make it your determined effort to press through, no matter how hard it may seem or how many times you fall!
Final Thoughts & Prayer
If there is one thing we have learned in life, it is to be patient with ourselves. When reading Biblical truths like this don’t get overwhelmed with the mountain of to-dos.
Take each day as it comes. Celebrate successes – no matter how small or seemingly insignificant they may be – and give yourself a little more grace.
We don’t expect all that much of babies. Do we? Gradually, we add on responsibility (and accountability) to our children and we should do the same for ourselves.
Our hope and prayer is that you and your family truly experience the Abundant Life in every area and remember to enjoy the journey. Life is all about the experiences, not about the end destinations! Shalom!
