Continued from Article 6 of Scriptures on Healing
“One of them [a leper], when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan.
“Were not all ten cleansed?
Where are the other nine?
Was no-one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?”
Then he said to him,
“Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”
(Luke 17:15-19, NIV, I am healed scripture)
All the lepers had been healed and yet only one comes back and hears the words "your faith has made you well”.
Was Jesus saying that this leper had a different kind of wellness, a wellness more important that physical health?
Or perhaps he was saying that it was his (Jesus') own connection with Source which had allowed the others to heal and that illness might come to them again, but the one who followed him had drawn on his own faith for healing and therefore was healed for good.
For me the implication of this healing Bible verse is that when we receive physical healing without strengthening our relationship with God, we have missed out on the true blessing that healing can bring.
I love the phrase that Kenneth Copeland uses in his healing ministry:
"I am not blessed because I am healed.
I am healed because I am blessed."
(Click to go through to read an
I am blessed bible verse)
"Does this mean that if you are not healed, you are not blessed?"
My goodness, NO!
Illness has no power whatsover to separate us from God.
We are One.
I am blessed,
you are blessed,
we are all blessed.
What it may mean is that you may not know you are blessed;
you may not have accepted that blessing;
you (and I) may need to practice resting in that blessing....
...Although I am writing here about how to claim your healing by faith, please know that I believe the relationship I have found with God is more important than my improvement in physical health.
Whatever state of health you are in, you are blessed. Knowing this is more important than physical healing. If you know that, even a little, you are rich.
To paraphrase A Course In Miracles, the important thing is not to create a really comfortable dream for ourselves but to wake up.

How do you practise believing 'I am Healed'?
You can use your God given imagination.
Do you sometimes imagine how ill you will feel if you do something?
Do you sometimes imagine getting more ill or even dying?
I know I did. When living with severe chronic illness, it is natural to do so.
But we are not concerned here with doing what is natural to the world. We are learning to do something that is unnatural to the world.
If you can imagine an unwanted outcome, can you perhaps imagine a wanted outcome?
Below is a short version of a visualisation exercise used in the Law of Attraction and in the modality of NLP.
But long before there was a name for either of the above, this concept was shared in the following scripture on healing.
“we walk by faith, not by sight”
(2 Corinthians 5:7, KJV esword)
1. How would you feel if you were healthy right now?
What would you do? – Picture yourself doing it.
What would you see? – Imagine seeing it.
What would you hear? – Imagine hearing it.
2. If any of your comments are phrased as what you don't want,
for example "I don't feel pain any more",
change them into a positive statement.
for example "I feel comfortable and free".
3. Put your statement in the present tense.
What is your visualisation for health?
Here is an example for me claiming "I am healed, I am healthy"...
I'm off for an energetic walk around the block.
I put on my shoes.
I open the gate.
I see the flowers in people's gardens, the evening light.
I hear the wind, people in their houses....
I hear my breath and the swish of my trousers.
I find a smile on my face.
My body moves easily and enjoyably.
My body loves to exercise.
I know that I am doing my body good by taking a joyous energetic walk.
Below is a prayer for healing based on the idea of walking by faith . It includes a reference to the following additional scripture on healing:
"For I know the plans I have
for you,” declares the Lord,
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future."
Thank you God for the gift of my marvellous imagination.
I use it now to imagine feeling healthy.
I know this in line with the good you wish for me... the good that you long for me to claim as my own.
I use my imagination to clear the channel of any thoughts and feelings that keep you out.
I let the riches you wish for me pour into my life.
I name one of these riches now.
HEALTH HEALTH HEALTH.
I let the word be imprinted in my DNA.
Thank you that You Are.
Thank you that whether today or another day, I will remove the blocks and let in your Love...
Why? Because this is what you will for me.
Your will be done.
So What Do These Scriptures on Healing Tell Us About How To Heal?
The scriptures on healing on this and earlier pages can really help you to claim the words 'I am healed' as a reality.
If we don't believe these things, that is OK. It is entirely normal. When we live with chronic longterm illness our society doesn't teach us that we can be healed.
If we want to believe them, then...
It has been such a pleasure writing these articles on faith healing for you.
Many of the promises in these scriptures on healing have been manifest in my life. I am so grateful, and so aware that I still need these healing Bible verses to grow my mustard seed faith, both on my own behalf and on behalf of others.
Thank you for reading these scriptures on healing.
As you claim these bible verses over your life, may they bless you as they have blessed me.
