Exercise Your Faith

John Hagee

THE LORD IS ON YOUR SIDE! With God on your side, sickness, and disease have no power in your life. The same power Jesus had to cast out demons and raise people from the dead, you have today!

Matthew 4:23 records, “Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.” Jesus didn’t just heal some diseases and sicknesses. He healed every kind of disease and sickness. And that healing is still available to believers today.

Are you sick in your body? Do you need a divine touch from the Lord? Start working your way through the Bible, speaking His promises out loud over your body. When you speak the Word of God out loud, you are literally releasing the blessings of the Lord to infiltrate every part of your existence. You are putting God in charge of the situation and putting the devil on notice that you are a child of the Living King!

“O LORD my God, I cried out to You, and You healed me.” Psalm 30:2

Our God is a miracle-working, life-giving, healing God! Declare there is a sufficiency in your house today through God’s promises. Declare God’s healing over sickness and disease. Declare His restoration power over relationships that are broken.

Declare that God is more than able to bring change to your life and the lives of your family members. The God who created heaven and earth is the same God who can heal you today...heart, soul, mind, and body.

Don’t minimize what God can do by thinking of Him through the lens of human limitations, expecting Him to only operate in ways that can be logically understood. Impossible medical cases are no match for Jesus.

When Jesus walked this earth, He cured the incurable, including a woman who had been hemorrhaging for 12 years. Mark said she had spent all her money on doctors, and instead of getting better, she got worse (5:26). Luke, who was himself a doctor, diagnosed her as incurable. “No one could heal her” (8:43). No one except Jesus, that is.

Is your earthly physician giving you the worst-case scenario, telling you that there is no hope? Don’t fret because all things are possible with God! He is an all-sufficient God, the God of all hope. He is the Resurrection and the Life. Start reaching for the hem of His garment and get ready.  

As you wait upon the Lord, He will restore your health and refresh your spirit. He will give you a new song in the darkest midnight and turn your mourning into dancing. There is no limit to what God can do in your life once you turn Him loose.

When you cry out to God, you can be confident that He hears you. He knows the pain in your heart. He sees you as you cry in your room late at night with the door closed. When the world is continuing on and you feel forgotten, He is collecting your tears. On the good days and the bad, He is working all things together for your good, and for His glory.  

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28

When we are armed for battle with the Word of God, Satan and all the demons of hell must flee. Sickness and disease must flee. But where do we turn when the doctor hands us the most horrifying diagnosis we never saw coming?

Turn to the Word of God. Begin to absorb it into your heart, mind, soul, and body. Read through Psalm 91. Verses 1 and 2 start like this, “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress; MyGod, in Him I will trust.’” Verses 9-11 promise, “Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.”

Are you in the middle of a storm? There is no better place to turn than the Great Physician. And there is no better way to prepare for the battle than to read the Word and speak life into your body. Deuteronomy 30:19 says, “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live…”

Remember though, that God’s timing is not always our timing. In fact, it rarely is. We cannot simply send up a prayer and ask God to do our bidding. That is not how faith operates. You may receive your healing instantly (that’s called a miracle), or you may receive it gradually (that’s a gift of healing).

Are you praying for healing in some area of your life right now? God is ready to heal you. He is ready to touch that area of your life that seems to weigh on you so heavily. He is ready to heal your physical body. He can also heal your relationships, your business, your finances…any area of your life when you are willing to turn it over to Him.

If you don’t know what to pray, ask the Holy Spirit to intercede for you. Let the Holy Spirit be your Partner in faith and lead you every step of the way to your miracle.

“Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” Romans 8:26

God is going to touch your life in a way that is so spectacular you could not have possibly thought of the answer coming your way. He is going to maneuver things in such a way that it is all going to come together in a moment that will completely bless you to the core.

It’s time to let go of your doubt. All the healing miracles recorded in God’s Word are available for believers today. Have faith that God wants to heal you and is going to heal you.


–Exercise your faith. When you start praising Him and putting Him first, His hand will reach out to you in the darkness and place your feet in what the Word tells us is “an even place.” And when God has you in His hands, no enemy can defeat you. Turn your situation over to Him and remember that the victory is already yours through Christ Jesus our Lord.
