God’s Word Is Medicine To Your Flesh

Paul PayneTeaching Resources

The Word of God Is Powerful

Hebrews 4:12 – “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword…”

1 Peter 1:23 – “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.”

The Word is incapable of being destroyed by sickness or any other Satanic force.

1 Thessalonians 2:13 – “For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye hard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.”

No word of God is void of power.

God’s Medicine

This is God’s prescription for life and health.

Proverbs 4:20-23 – “My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh” (vv.20-22).

To fill God’s prescription, you must put the Word of God first place and allow it to be final authority.

Matthew 8:5-10.

This man allowed the Word to be his evidence.

There is no limit to the amount of God’s medicine you can take.

You cannot get an overdose of God’s medicine. The more you can take, the more powerful you will become.

Attend to My Words

Attend: to give time, thought, meditation, and action

Joshua 1:8 – “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”

Isaiah 26:3 – “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”

Your mind will be free from doubt when you keep your attention on God’s Word.

Consider the Word.

Romans 4:19-21 – “And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about a hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.”

Hebrews 3:1 – “Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus.”

To consider Jesus is to consider the Word.

Incline Thine Ears

Put your physical ears in position to hear the word of faith.

Romans 10:17 – “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”

Listen to what is being said with your spiritual ears.

Mark 4:23-25 – “If any man have ears to hear, let him hear” (v.23).

Acts 14:7-10 – “The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed, Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked” (vv.9-10).

Let Them Not Depart from Thine Eyes

Keep your eyes trained on the Word.

Do not look at circumstances.

Matthew 6:22 – “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.”

The eye is the gateway to the body.

If your eye is on darkness (sickness), your body is full of darkness.

Psalm 119:130 – “The entrance of thy words giveth light…”


Keep Them (God’s Words) in the Midst of Thine Heart

The portion of God’s Word that you act on is the portion that is living in you.

Matthew 12:34 – “…for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.”

God’s Words Are Life And Health

Continually attending to God’s Word with your eyes, ears, and heart will cause you to live in divine health.

At the first sign of symptom, take a dose of God’s medicine.

1 Peter 2:24 – “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.”

Matthew 8:17 – “That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.”

Galatians 3:13 – “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.”

3 John 2 – “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
