Heal -“Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick” (Luke 9:1-2).
God has given us the authority in the Name of Jesus to issue decrees with daring audacity and have them established. That’s why we can speak and act with boldness because of who we are in Christ. For example, when you study the Scriptures, you’d realize that God never asked us to pray for Him to heal the sick; rather, He says we should heal the sick.
Exodus 23:25 And you shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless your bread, and your water; and I will take sickness away from the middle of you.
In Matthew 10:8, Luke 9:2, Luke 10:9, Jesus charged the disciples to heal the sick; He didn’t ask them to pray to Him or to the Father to heal the sick. In Mark 16:17-18 He said, “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” Jesus made it clear that we have been given the authority in His Name to heal the sick.
Peter, addressing the lame man at the gate of the temple called Beautiful said, “…Silver and gold have me none; but such as I have to give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk” (Acts 3:6). He was conscious of the authority he had and knew that though he couldn’t give the man money at that time, he could ‘give’ him healing in the Name of Jesus.
When you pray for the sick, make bold decrees! Command the devils responsible for the sickness to come out and that the sick healed in the Name of Jesus.
