What Does Proverbs Say About Healing?

We probably all know someone who's suffered from chronic disease or another ailment. When you're sick, you can get desperate - ready and willing to try any remedy that you hear works. 

The Book of Proverbs offers a powerful healing cure: God's Word.

My child, pay attention to what I say.

Listen carefully to my words.

21 Don’t lose sight of them.

Let them penetrate deep into your heart,

22 for they bring life to those who find them,

and healing to their whole body.

Proverbs 4:20-22

So How Can You Let God's Word Penetrate Deep Into Your Heart?

1. Read It Daily

The Book of John shares the life of Jesus - with many stories of miraculous healing. That is a great place to start!

2. Read It Out Loud

The Bible says several times to keep the word of God on our lips - to speak it out loud, believing every word. It may feel funny at first, but try it out. Start by simply reading the verse above out loud and asking, "God, will you do this for me?"

3. Memorize It

Memorizing Bible verses means that we can recall them to memory when we really need them - like a loved one's phone number that we'll never forget!

4. Share It With Others

When we share the Bible with others, often our faith and our knowledge of scripture is strengthened too.
