I started Joyce Meyer’s 30/30 Bible Study Challenge and thought I’d blog at times on the Scripture of the day from her challenge. Today’s is Psalm 107:20: “The word heals and delivers us.”
God has done miraculous healing in my life (emotionally, physically, spiritually) as well as in my family’s and friends’ lives. Whenever I hear someone say, “God doesn’t answer prayer,” I am just astounded. I’ve seen His answers firsthand to prayer again and again in amazing ways. He doesn’t always answer the way we want Him to, but God does answer prayer! He always hears your prayers!
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8). God healed and did miracles in the Bible, and He still heals and does miracles today. You can read some of those powerful healing testimonies in my book, Walking With God. Click here to find out more about it and to get your copy today.

God heals through His word; He also heals through doctors, medicines, surgeries, chiropractors, & other ways today
Recently my father had a very frightening experience. One day he suddenly lost vision in one eye. The vision came back after about an hour. He went to his eye doctor and his regular physician, who had different tests done at the hospital to find out what was going on.
The results were that he had major blockage in the carotid artery going from his neck to his brain. The neurosurgeon said he was a walking time bomb for a major stroke or a heart attack, and recommended surgery immediately. He still had a 2% chance for a stroke or a heart attack during the surgery, but it was much greater without it.
Daddy didn’t want to have the surgery; he was concerned of something majorly going wrong during surgery or even of dying. I didn’t want him to have it, either, but just prayed and asked family, friends, and my intercessor team to pray for him. The surgery was very successful. He’s now doing well, recovering at home! Praise God! Daddy told my sister Maria, “It must have been all those prayers!” Jesus is the Healer!
I don’t believe God always heals. Sometimes people are completely healed by God through death and going to heaven, where there is no sickness, no more death, sadness, tears or pain. But I believe that we are to continue to pray in faith, believing God for healing, up until the very last minute. Nothing is impossible for God! (Luke 1:37) After all, He’s GOD! 🙂 Our job is just to pray, and we need to leave the results up to God.
God’s word heals and delivers.
