How To Apply God’s Power To Your Soul And Body

Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones. (Prov. 16:24 NKJ)

Applying God's Word to your body and soul

Medical science has transformed our understanding of physical and mental ailments. We’re truly grateful for this God-given blessing of medical knowledge. When someone is unwell, we turn to medical solutions—medication or therapeutic procedures—to foster healing. Yet, the Bible reveals that God’s power offers a unique and unparalleled healing for both body and mind. So, how can one channel God’s power for such healing?

God’s medication is His Word. As articulated in Proverbs 16:24, kind words nourish the soul and body. Proverbs 4:21-22 reaffirms this, portraying God’s words as life-bringing and health-boosting. And as Psalms 107:20 attests, His Word has the power to heal.

When God gave us the Bible, He gave us His prescription to solve human spirit, soul, and body ailments.  But how can we take God’s medication? We must embrace this heavenly pill just as we did during salvation to benefit from it. The process involves hearing the Word, understanding its message, believing in it, and then proclaiming it. By internalizing God’s Word—understanding and believing in it—we can proclaim or prophesy its healing power over our minds and bodies.

As a medical doctor, I recognize the importance of adhering to prescriptions. I see most of my patients diligently follow their medicinal regimen, which is commendable. If believers could show the same dedication to God’s Word as they do to medical advice, His Word would undeniably become our life force, rejuvenating every part of our being. His medication has no side effects; rather, it has desirable side effects. Imagine taking a medication that produces joy and peace as a side effect( Jeremiah 15:16). Who doesn’t want these?

Will you embrace God’s heavenly medication today?

NB: It’s essential to understand that the insights shared here do not recommend disregarding your doctor’s advice. I’ve observed many believers forsaking medical guidance under the guise of faith, but this is not faith—it’s a misinformed choice. Medications don’t hinder God’s power; our hearts can become barriers. If and when divine healing manifests, the need for medications naturally ceases. Please get in touch with me if you have any concerns or questions about this perspective.
