ROLE OF THE BIBLE IN RESTORATION
Physical Healing Scriptures!
Some men are infected with STD’s as a result of sex with many women.
Others are obese and extremely overweight. Others have a history of disease that is generational.
When a man is in restoration, he is there to be healed from head to toe.
If he is suffering from an ailment or disease or other physical discomfort,these physical healing scriptures can be a salve and a source of inspiration and hope.
Because Isaiah 55:11 says God’s Word will not return void, it seems reasonable to believe that God, Jehovah Rapha, (The Lord who heals) is still in the healing business.
Thus, it will be important to share these passages in whatever context you provide for you male clients.
All Bible references are from The Amplified Bible. Many people believe that God is able to heal them but they aren’t sure whether He will heal them.
If that’s you, then I want to encourage you to carefully read each of these scriptures.
Notice how much God wants to heal His children. You don’t have to do something to earn His love or His healing touch—just believe what He says and do what He tells you to do.
Start by speaking these verses aloud. Meditate on them. Believe them. That’s how we release God’s power to heal—by speaking His Word and trusting His ability and His willingness to heal all of our diseases.
