TAKE YOUR MEDICINE DAILY – Then Give It Away

God bless you in that name above all names, at which every knee shall bow, our Lord, Jesus Christ! Pastor Bee here. For this edition of “Be For God”, we will focus on one of the greatest healing realities, for the most part, NOT known to mankind — God’s Word!

My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep thine heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life

Proverbs 4:20-23

God’s Word is life and health to those who are diligent to keep its precepts in their hearts. The word “health” in these verses, is translated as remedy, heal, cure, sound, wholesome, profit, sound of body and mind. The Chaldee Lexicon defines the word as “refreshing of the body and of the mind”. We keep or guard our hearts like a military guard by being diligent to keep God’s words in our hearts, our deepest thoughts, and His words become healing, soundness, and refreshing to our bodies and our minds. God’s Word is a cure and a remedy for our bodies and minds. That sounds a lot like a “medicine” to me. It is not bitter medicine either. “Pleasant words (God’s Word) are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones”. (Proverbs 16:24). I know these are almost unbelievable statements, but our Father is the guarantor of His Word.

For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: so shall my word be that goeth out of my mouth; it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Isaiah 55:10-12

God’s Word — all of it, spoken or written — will absolutely come to pass. Our Lord used Scripture to back down the devil when he was tempted in the wilderness. “But he answered and said, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4). “In the beginning”, Genesis 1, God commanded order out of chaos by the power of His spoken word when He SAID, “Let there be … and it was so”. He spoke and it came to pass. We too, have power in what we speak. “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof” (Proverbs 18:21). We bring to ourselves the new birth by our confession.

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Romans 10:9

The word for “saved” is the Greek word “sozo”, meaning “to save a suffering one (from perishing), i.e., one suffering from disease, to make well, restore to health”. When we confess with our mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in our hearts that God raised him from the dead, we tap into the power of the resurrection and receive to ourselves the total health and wholeness that Jesus suffered and died to bring to us. It then becomes our choice whether we allow the Word of God to dwell in us richly to the extent we speak life not death from our mouths. “A faithful ambassador is health”. “The tongue of the wise is health”. “A wholesome tongue is a tree of life”. “For as he thinketh in his heart so is he”. What are we thinking about? What are we talking about; the daily news, the drama at work, any number of distractions and negatives we see and live every day? Or do we speak and confess the Word of God on lips of believing? “He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions”. (Psalm 107:20)

A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil; for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

Luke 6:45

(For the word of God is quick (living, alive) and powerful (effectual, from labor, work) and sharper than any two-edged word, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12

Do we allow the word of God, which is living and effectual (the in-dwelling power to get things done), to be the guide, the critic, of our deepest and most intimate thoughts, cares, and concerns? Do we allow it to saturate our thoughts down to the core of our being to the end it is what we speak and manifest in our lives? Every time we read the word, every time we speak the word, it brings wholeness to us and to those to whom we speak. It is absolutely God’s will for us to manifest His healing wholeness in our lives and share it with others. “Beloved I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth” (3 John 1:2). We know that health and total wholeness is available. Now is the time to share it with a world that is dying to know also. Jesus himself gave us the commissioning. “Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give” (Matthew 10:8).

And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

Matthew 10:1

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations”, … “and lo I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen”.

Matthew 28:18 & 19

This was not just a one-time commissioning for his disciples only. It also is for us today: for those born-again believers with fire in their souls who are willing to take up the sword of the spirit and wield it with the power and authority of Jesus Christ, who gave us the same power and authority to do the works he does and greater. Will we accept the challenge given to Isaiah when God said to him, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us”?: “Then said I, Here am I’ send me” (Isaiah 6:8).

We have been given the medicine, the pure, unadulterated, healing words of God. We know the Father’s will for our lives is health and wholeness, in every category: spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, financial. WHAT DO YOU NEED? That is what God wants for your life. We have been given the commissioning by the Lord Jesus himself. Now, what are we going to do with it? When we decide to take up the challenge, it doesn’t necessarily mean we will do so without trials, tribulations, or distractions. It does mean, however, in all these things we will be more than conquerors, because God is with us; our Lord is with us for all eternity. We can do all things through Christ which strengthens us. So let’s “Be For God” and take up the wonderful challenge of walking out on the accomplished works of our Lord. Let’s inflict some pain on the enemy as we take back holy ground for the Lord. Let’s heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out devils, and bring God’s medicine to a world that is dying to hear the words of life! Let’s boldly proclaim, “Here am I, send me”!
