Jehovah Rapha: The Lord, Our Healer. There are dozens of Bible verses about healing Scriptures and I have come to take solace in these over the years as my loved ones and I have battle health conditions. They have brought up comfort, hope and have built up our most holy faith to believe our Lord for a miracle!
With that said, there is a practical application to all of this. The Lord has gifted your body with the remarkable ability to heal itself under the right conditions. You need to feed it wholesome food, drink clean water and breathe pure air. Sadly, finding these things is all but impossible in our fallen world as toxic chemicals have overtaken our soil and atmosphere. In spite of our efforts (and great expense) to purchase essential products for a healthy home, we still get sick and God is here to bless you with His healing touch when you need it. The healing Scripture below testifies to that!
Cry out to Him and seek this precious gift today! Come before His throne with confidence and courage.

Scriptures for Healing – 40 Bible Verses to Read
Before I share my 40 favorite Bible verses about healing Scriptures, we need to put what God’s Word says about health into context with these two scripture passages.
- “Later Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, ‘See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you.’” John 5:14
- “Faith without works is useless.” James 2:20
Essentially, once God does His part, we must do our part! He heals us and we maintain the healing!
Personally, I don’t view sickness as a sin issue. From what I can in the Scripture, neither does Jesus. Otherwise, why would He say this in 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.”
The point that I think our Lord is trying to make is that, when we sin, we put ourselves in harm’s way. Reckless behavior, misuse of medicines and deliberate poor food choices (i.e. all “sins”) can and oftentimes damages our bodies and will make us more susceptible to get sick.
This is why it’s so crucial to put faith to our deeds and put deeds to our faith!
My hope and prayer is that these 40 Bible verses about healing Scriptures inspire, encourage and build up your most holy faith. As you seek God for healing, I suggest you do your best to learn how to be healthy and make the proper abundant life-giving choices.
Using natural therapies God gave us like essential oils can help and I wrote a report about the 10 most healing that you can find here.

The Bible Verses About Healing Scriptures Challenge
As I read, and reread Bible Verses About Healing Scriptures, I am often filled with a sense of reassurance to see how the timeless principles within its pages ring true in my life.
One lesson in particular, that we reap what we sow, has all but defined my Biblical health experience and my favorite Bible verses about healing Scriptures conveys this profoundly. In its simplest form, we reap sickness because of what was sow into our bodies. Along our healing journey, we are all confronted by the same fork in the road and, we all have a choice.
No amount of prayer, no amount of meditation, and no amount of counseling can turn things around until we are willing to change. Yes, these 40 Bible Verses About Healing Scriptures are absolutely abundant life giving, but we need to also stop doing the things that are causing the damage in the first place, which then gives our bodies an opportunity to heal. At the same time, we need to learn how to take care of ourselves and regain control of our health.
Can you relate?
- Have you pledged to regaining control of your health in a way that honors your body as the temple that it truly is?
- Have you determined to feed your temple nutritious foods and avoid toxins that cause disease?
- Have you committed to stop running to the pharmacy for every little thing, and have you embraced the power of using natural therapies like essential oils instead?

Practical Steps to Health
Now that we’ve meditated on 40 Bible verses about healing Scriptures, let’s switch gears a little and focus on giving your home a “make over” to support a new healthy lifestyle to maintain your healing!
Usually, you’ll quickly discover that you need to replace many of the staple pantry items considered unsafe like white, bleached sugar and flour. Then you’ll notice that you need new kitchen gadgets to prepare all those fresh ingredients and DIY projects on your to-do list. After you’ve made over the kitchen, you start to think about other essential products for a healthy home like body care, household cleaners, and all kinds of stuff!
Rest assured that this is completely normal, so don’t get stressed out about the transition. Take it all in baby-steps, focusing on the lowest hanging fruit. Like first trying to memorize Bible verses about healing Scriptures, as you do what’s easiest to implement at first, you’ll find that you can master the basics quite quickly. Then, next think you know, you’re picking fruit on top of the tree that you once thought was impossible to do!

Must-Have Items to Stay Healthy
You can technically live without reading your favorite Bible verses about healing Scriptures, but why would you want to!?!
Food on the hand is not negotiable.
Humans can live without food for a few weeks, without water for a few days and without air for just a few minutes.

Scriptures About Healing
“Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.”

“To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. Blessed is the one who considers the poor! In the day of trouble the Lord delivers him; the Lord protects him and keeps him alive; he is called blessed in the land; you do not give him up to the will of his enemies. The Lord sustains him on his sickbed; in his illness you restore him to full health.”
“Behold, blessed is the one whom God reproves; therefore despise not the discipline of the Almighty. For he wounds, but he binds up; he shatters, but his hands heal.”
“And Peter said to him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you; rise and make your bed. And immediately he rose.”
“He touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she rose and began to serve him.”

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”
“Behold, I will bring to it health and healing, and I will heal them and reveal to them abundance of prosperity and security.”
“Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,”
“Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise.”
“It happened that the father of Publius lay sick with fever and dysentery. And Paul visited him and prayed, and putting his hands on him healed him.”
“Then Abraham prayed to God, and God healed Abimelech, and also healed his wife and female slaves so that they bore children.”
“Then he stretched himself upon the child three times and cried to the LORD, “O LORD my God, let this child’s life come into him again.” And the LORD listened to the voice of Elijah. And the life of the child came into him again, and he revived.”
“And the king said to the man of God, “Entreat now the favor of the LORD your God, and pray for me, that my hand may be restored to me.” And the man of God entreated the LORD, and the king’s hand was restored to him and became as it was before.”
