The First Step To A Healing
THE FIRST STEP TO A MIRACLE AND HEALING IS SPEAK GODS WORD TO YOURSELF:
Pastor Tim P.

How many times has someone said something negative to you like: your stupid, dumb, arrogant, self-centered, and the list goes on and on.
How many times have you said to yourself, your stupid, poor, lazy, sick, can’t do anything, will never amount to anything? We get what we say!
It is time to stop speaking negative faith and start speaking positive faith – which is: What does God say about you and your situation? Speak What you want not what you feel and see.
This is what the woman with the issue of blood changed her life with.
Romans 10:8-10 NKJV
“But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach):
9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
(all that we need is in our salvation)
“For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.”
I. GOD STARTED EVERYTHING BY SPEAKING IT INTO EXISTANCE:
“Then God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so.”
“Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so.”
“Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years;”
“Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
“Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
· God started this world with speaking it into existence.
· God said to Himself let us make man in our image (the Godhead – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) we have a spirit, soul, and body – three in one.
· God blessed all humankind by speaking over them His blessing and authority. (we are like God in that we are to speak what is not as thou it is, and it will come to pass.
II. WE CONTINUE EVERYTHING BY SPEAKING IT INTO EXISTANCE:
“Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need.
29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.
30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.”
“He also taught me, and said to me: “Let your heart retain my words; Keep my commands, and live.”
“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.”
“Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you.” And his servant was healed that same hour.”
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.”
(as it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;”
This woman could have made a negative statement instead of a positive one. She could have said, “there’s no use. I’ve suffered so long. All the best doctors have given up on me, I might as well go ahead and die. And that would have been what she received.
But she made a positive statement of faith – and it came to pass.”
I have what I say. I speak positively – and I receive accordingly. What I say is my faith speaking. And what I say makes me whole.
Scriptures of faith
Philippians 4:13 – Succeed
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
Philippians 4:19 – Supply
“And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
Isaiah 53:5 - Healing
“But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.”
Psalm 91:5-8 – safety
“You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, 6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.
8 Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked.”
Acts 2:21-24 – Salvation & Miracles
“And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be saved.’
22 “Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know—
23 Him, being delivered by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God, you have taken by lawless hands, have crucified, and put to death;
24 whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it.”
