Bible Verses For Healing [10 Powerful Scriptures]

10 Healing Scriptures To Help You Walk In Divine Health

Post date:




You may be surprised at me posting a list of healing scriptures.

As those that know me are aware, I am no lover of the way some in our modern society present healing or their use of it for financial gain. I do not believe in faith healing. I believe in divine healing.

However, that in no way causes me not to believe in Christian healing or the heart and desire of God to heal.

As I read the biblical narrative of the gospels and the book of Acts, I see healing as being integrally tied to the effectiveness of evangelism.

I hope as you read and meditate upon these Bible verses for healing that you will see that although a man may have perverted the intent of this gift, that the heart and desire of God has never changed. And you will be open to allowing God to use you with this gift, or if you are in need of healing, allow Him to heal you by His power.

So take your time, meditate upon these Bible verses about healing, and bookmark this page so you can memorize them. I am sure you will see God do the miraculous in your life as He has done in mine.

Top Ten Healing Verses

#10 Exodus 15:26

26 and said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.

#9 Psalm 103:3

3 Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases,

#8 Isaiah 53:5

5 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.

#7 Jeremiah 17:14

14 Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; Save me, and I shall be saved, For You are my praise.

#6 Matthew 4:23

23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people.

#5 Matthew 8:5-13

5 Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him, 6 saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.” 7 And Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.” 8 The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” 10 When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel! 11 And I say to you that many will come from east and west, and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. 12 But the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” 13 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.

#4 Acts 3:1-10

1 Now Peter and John went up together to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour. 2 And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms from those who entered the temple; 3 who, seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked for alms. 4 And fixing his eyes on him, with John, Peter said, “Look at us.” 5 So he gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them. 6 Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” 7 And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. 8 So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them—walking, leaping, and praising God. 9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God. 10 Then they knew that it was he who sat begging alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.

#3 Acts 10:38

38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

#2 James 5:13-16

“13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed.”

The Most Powerful Healing Scripture

#1 Luke 5:12-16

12 And it happened when He was in a certain city, that behold, a man who was full of leprosy saw Jesus; and he fell on his face and implored Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.”13 Then He put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately the leprosy left him. 14 And He charged him to tell no one, “But go and show yourself to the priest, and make an offering for your cleansing, as a testimony to them, just as Moses commanded.” 15 However, the report went around concerning Him all the more; and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by Him of their infirmities. 16 So He Himself often withdrew into the wilderness and prayed.

Final Thoughts On These Healing Scriptures In The Bible

The reason I posted the verse from Luke as the last of my verses about healing and made it my #1 verse is because of the words of Jesus “I am willing.”

Many question whether or not it is the will of God to be healed. Jesus is no respecter of persons. If He was willing to heal the leper, He is ready to heal you.

Hebrews 13:8 says

“Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever.”

He hasn’t changed.

You will find nowhere in the Bible where a person who came to Jesus and asked to be healed, that was not cured!

And you will see that healing happened not just when Jesus was walking the earth, but it happened after as well.

And it wasn’t just a gift for the Apostles, because the Apostle James told you to call for the elders of your church to pray and anoint you with oil and you would be healed.

Now, do I understand why, or what prevents some people from receiving the healing that is available to them?

No, I am not God.

But I know what God said, and I know that reading healing scriptures help people receive their healing.

Mark 16:14-18

14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover. ”

Healing is supposed to follow the believer, and it is tied to preaching the gospel to every creature. That is why it is so important that you get these verses about healing down into your spirit.
