Continued from Article 6 of Scriptures on Healing
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 only 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."

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 may need to practise resting in that blessing....
...Although I am writing here about how to claim your healing by faith, please know that the relationship I have found with God is far more important to me than my 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 to wake up, not to create a really comfortable dream for ourselves.

Imagine how you would feel if you were healed right now.
What would you do? – Picture yourself doing it.
What would you see? – Imagine seeing it.
What would you hear? – Imagine hearing it.
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. 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 so as to see a different result.
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...
Can I say 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.
