What the Bible says regarding healing
Healing is the children bread
Matthew 15:26-28 “But he answered, “It is not appropriate to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.” But she said, “Yes, Lord, but even the dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.” Then Jesus answered her, “Woman, great is your faith! Be it done to you even as you desire.” And her daughter was healed from that hour.”
I do not know what you or someone close to you is passing through right now, but one thing is sure- we are entitled to divine healing, and if only you believe the healing power of Jesus, which flows through the Scriptures, your healing is sure.
Before you dive into the healing word of God, you need to know these essential things about healing.
Jesus heals always! Luke 6:19- “All the multitude sought to touch him, for power came out of him and healed them all.”
Remember to ask John 14:13-14 “Whatever you will ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you will ask anything in my name, I will do it.”
Be sure you forgive. Mark 11:25 “But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against.”
Believe that you are healed. Isaiah 53:5- “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds, we are healed.”
God has a plan for you Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

Deuteronomy 7:15 “The Lord will take away from you all sickness, and will afflict you with none of the terrible diseases of Egypt which you have known, but will lay them on all those who hate you.”

Jeremiah 33:6 “Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them; and I will reveal to them abundance of peace and truth.”
It is our birthright as the children of God to have access to divine healing, however, wisdom is profitable to direct.
Just because we are entitled to divine healing, does not mean we should leave everything concerning our wellbeing to God. James 2:20 “Faith without works is useless.” Basically, we have to do our own part, while God does his own part. This means, when He heals us, it is our duty to maintain the healing.
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.”
Encourage Yourself In the Lord
The above scripture proves that sin can cause to lack our bread (healing). We cannot live a reckless life and expect us to remain in good health. Misuse of medicine, deliberate food choices, gluttony, etc can hinder us from enjoying divine health; these habits can make us get sick.
