If you feel a dull ache in your soul or need to cry out and scream for help, have no fear! God is there to bring compassion and comfort – whether in the form of scripture or through others.

Healing Scriptures to Stand On

Healing scriptures are a powerful tool that can change your life. The ultimate goal with healing scriptures is to remove the obstacles between you and Christ so that life is no longer a struggle but a place where your spiritual desires are fulfilled.

I have provided you with 23 healing scriptures to stand on that can help heal and protect your body from disease and other harmful conditions. You can use these scriptures as daily inspiration to improve your health.

Psalm 107:20 – Healing power comes from God.

He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

Psalm 107:20 NKJV

Psalm 107:20 - Healing power comes from God.

He sent His Word, and it was enough for him to say, “Go, and the disease shall be removed from you,” and the illness vanished.

As it was in the life of the Savior, who frequently cured the sick with a “word,” recovery from the disease now often seems to be accomplished as if a word had been spoken by someone in authority, commanding the infection to disappear.

Also, healing power comes from God, who controls every situation, regardless of the method used. Therefore dear reader, align your faith to the Word of God and see your health perfected.

James 5:14-15 – We have the privilege of being heard when we pray.

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. 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.

James 5:14-15 NKJV

James 5:14-15 - We have the privilege of being heard when we pray.

Christian believers have the great privilege of being heard when they pray; this gives them access to the throne of Grace, where they can find mercy. And the “prayer of faith” marks the beginning and conclusion of the book of James.

In addition to being urged to pray for others and ourselves, no matter what we are dealing with, we are also told to request prayer when in need.

Dear friend, requesting prayers from other church members will help because when you are weak and can’t stand in for yourself, it is the mediation of others that may help. And in so doing, you obtain mercy and forgiveness from sin.

Isaiah 38:16 – Look out for the promises of God.

O Lord, by these things men live, and in all these is the life of my spirit; restore me to health and let me live!

Isaiah 38:16 AMP

Isaiah 38:16 - Look out for the promises of God.

The idea behind the phrase “these things” is that people are only kept alive in the land of the living by gracious interpositions. The term refers to God’s promises and their fulfillment.

It was not because people could save themselves; instead, God intervened during a crisis and granted them health when there was no chance they could do so on their own.

Look out for the promises of God about you written in His Word and hold on to it, and see the salvation of God in healing you.

Isaiah 53:4-5 – He purchased for us the Spirit and Grace of God.

Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains (of punishment)…
And with the stripes (that wounded) Him we are healed and made whole.

Isaiah 53:4-5 AMP

Isaiah 53:4-5 - He purchased for us the Spirit and Grace of God.

These verses give a description of Christ’s sufferings as well as their purpose. Our Lord Jesus endured suffering in our place and for our sins. All grievances and sorrows, even the most severe ones, are due to our iniquities.

By placing our sins on Christ, we are delivered from the destruction to which we become subject due to corruption.

He purchased the Spirit and Grace of God through His sufferings, enabling us to mortify the distempers of our souls—our corruptions.

Therefore, by His stripes, your healing is perfected. Remind yourself of these words, and they will be so onto you.


1 Peter 2:24 – He was humiliated so that we might be complete.

who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.

1 Peter 2:24 NKJV

1 Peter 2:24 - He was humiliated so that we might be complete.

The Lord Jesus showed humility by accepting the harsh punishment in His own body and dying for our sins.

He endured scourging, lashings, beatings, and humiliation in our place because He was crucified for our sins and pierced for our disobedience.

He was humiliated so that we might be complete—spiritually, physically, and in health. He endured the whipping to free us from sin, death, and separation from the Father’s curse.

When sick, remind yourself that Christ has borne your sickness on the cross so that you may be free.

Exodus 23:25-26 – Have confidence. 

And I will take sickness away from the midst of you. No one shall suffer miscarriage or be barren in your land; I will fulfill the number of your days.

Exodus 23:25b-26 NKJV

Exodus 23:25-26 - Have confidence. 

We can pray to God for healing because we are His children. If we follow Him, He is our Healer and has promised to protect us from the terrible diseases of this world.

He assures us that He is the One “who pardons all your sins and heals all your diseases.”

The assurance of God to us is to fulfill the number of days on earth by taking away sickness from our lives.

Have this confidence and when you are sick, remind him that he promised to fulfill your days, and by faith, watch him grant you healing.

Matthew 8:17 – Christ came to die for our sins.

He Himself took (in order to carry away) our weaknesses and infirmities and bore away our diseases.

Matthew 8:17 AMP

Matthew 8:17 - Christ came to die for our sins.

Do you know that it is not God’s intention that we should be in sickness? Christ came to die for our sins, but in the cause of his death, He took our disease away because He did not want us to suffer in our health.

Every child of God hopes to know their ill health has been taken away. So declare these words to your body.

Isaiah 41:10 – He has told us not to be afraid.

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Isaiah 41:10

Isaiah 41:10 - He has told us not to be afraid.

Our verse encourages and reassures us not to be afraid of whatever situations we find ourselves in but to trust in Him, and He will give us the strength to overcome.

God has made this promise to His children because He is more than sufficient. All God asks of us is that we trust Him and believe what He says.

As humans, we are constantly confronted with terrifying situations that cause us to fear, but He is a faithful God who is our ever-present help in times of need.

God has told us not to be afraid because He is always with us, even until the end. As a result, He has stretched out His arms to comfort us from life’s worries and anxieties.

Psalm 30:2 – Give thanks.

 “LORD my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me.”

Psalm 30:2

Psalm 30:2 - Give thanks.

In this Psalm, we hear David rejoicing in the Lord and extolling His goodness and Grace as he sings a song of thanks and praise for restoring him to health and strength.

When we have been restored to health and strength, we owe our Heavenly Father unqualified thanks and grateful praise.

Are you sick, or do you have someone suffering? God is your helper, call on Him, and He will answer and help you.

We all have wounds that need to be treated. All of us have experienced some harm, whether it was psychological, spiritual, or physical. Everybody has lifelong hurts, vices, and hangups that must be repaired and healed.

Today, I want to encourage you to seize God’s promises in these verses. For you, it was written. Make a strong claim over your life in it. Say it aloud and allow its force to sweep over you.

Healing Scriptures for Health and Strength

There are many promises of healing in the Bible, and we can stand on these verses in faith, believing in our complete restoration. We can also use these scriptures as a point of agreement in prayer for our healing.

If you or someone you know needs healing, here are some powerful scriptures to stand on for complete physical, emotional, and spiritual restoration.

Isaiah 40:29-31

 “He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength…Those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”

Isaiah 40:29,31

God may not instantly and miraculously change our challenging circumstances, but He does give us the strength to face whatever is currently in front of us.

Do you struggle or endure pain? Those who humble themselves before God receive a fresh supply of spiritual—supernatural—strength and faith.

We frequently fail and grow weary, unable to bear the burden when we attempt to overcome challenges in our strength. But as long as we continue to rely on God, He will give us strength and power that surpass our own.

1 Peter 2:24

 “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.”  

1 Peter 2:24

Along with dying for our sins, the Lord Jesus demonstrated humility by taking severe punishment in His own body.

The fact that He was crucified for our sins and pierced for our disobedience meant that He had to endure scourging, lashings, beatings, and humiliation in our place.

For us to be whole—spiritually and physically —He was humiliated. He has taken away your sickness; declare it to your sick body.

Psalm 119:50

. “This is my comfort in my affliction, that your promise gives me life.”

Psalm 119:50

The Psalmist discovered that the unfolding of God’s Word serves as a place of refuge during difficult times and imparts wisdom and understanding to the simple.

The Psalmist describes the immense comfort and consolation that result from reading God’s Word in this verse.

He shares with us how God’s Word has grown to be a comfort in trying times and how it renews and revives him when he feels worn out and discouraged.

Dear believer, find your strength in your comfort in Christ and let His Word heal your soul.

Exodus 15:26

 If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

Exodus 15:26

In times of intense trial, true believers will be tempted to worry, doubt, and complain. However, we should pour our hearts before the Lord in every practice and cast our care upon him.

When that happens, we’ll discover that having a submissive will, a clear conscience, and the comforts of the Holy Spirit will make even the worst trial bearable, if not enjoyable.

God had promised that He would not cause diseases to come near us if we kept His instruction.

Are you honoring God’s instruction and yet facing health challenges? Talk to God and remind Him of His Word.

Psalm 118:17

 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.

Psalm 118:17

There is no need to ask what exactly was the condition of David that could lead him to make this prayer. David must have been in distress, seeking life at the point of death.

Here David showed a level of faith through his declaration. You, too, can be like David in showing belief in sickness. Say it like David ‘ I shall not die, and do it in confidence, knowing that God will help you.

Strength is discussed in this verse. God reassures us that He will always be by our side in this passage. He tells us not to be afraid because He will support us with His righteous hand, enabling us to stand firm.

Putting your faith in God can be challenging because you never know what is on the other side of the bridge when He tells you to go.

Nevertheless, God calls for your trust in Him. To let Him walk with you, He wants you to build up your confidence and fortitude.

Aside from that, isn’t it wonderful to realize you’re not facing your difficulties yourself? And to be aware of someone’s willingness to stroll alongside you across the bridge.

Healing Scriptures on Healing

When we are ill, it is often our first instinct to turn to modern medicine for a cure. However, a long tradition of healing in the scriptures predates modern medicine.

We will see how these texts can help us understand and deal with illness physically and spiritually.

We will also learn about some of the essential principles of healing. So, if you are interested in learning more about scriptures on recovery, read on.

Psalm 103:2-3 

Bless the Lord O my soul and forget not all His benefits; Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases.

Psalm 103:2-3 NKJV

The fact that God cares about our physical well-being is a beautiful bonus, and he gives us physical and spiritual healing during this lifetime.

The benefit of healing is one of God’s gifts to man because He wishes that you may be in good health above all things.

Be encouraged in the Lord, dear believer, and praise God for these attractive benefits.

Proverbs 4:20-22

“My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.”

Proverbs 4:20-22

This is the Lord’s Word. Because His Word brings life and health, He wants us to pay attention to him and his Word. Spend some time hearing what God has to say to you. Not only by His Word but also by his voice.

Keep the Lord foremost in your thoughts and prayers. Always keep God’s Word close at hand. When you do, this will prepare you to protect your heart because it is the source of all life.

Proverbs 17:22

“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”

Proverbs 17:22

God created us in a way that makes joy and humor essential components of who we are.

There is no denying the link between our emotional and physical health, and a happier and more upbeat outlook dramatically increases the likelihood of having better physical health.

What, then, should we do to ensure that we are emotionally and physically strong? The answer is that we should work to be physically and mentally strong and healthy.

Regularly laughing out loud and maintaining a happy, upbeat attitude benefit our bodies, and our emotions will also benefit from keeping healthy, active bodies.

Isaiah 38:16-17

“…You restored me to health and let me live. Surely it was for my benefit that I suffered such anguish. In your love you kept me from the pit of destruction; you have put all my sins behind your back.”

Isaiah 38:16-17

This chapter visits those sick and will amuse their thoughts, guide their devotions, and strengthen their faith and hopes while physical afflictions confine them. God does not allow us to suffer in sickness or destroy us by it.

He allows it because it is to our benefit, and what is this benefit? It is to learn to trust in Him. Most times, it is to bring us to correction and bring forgiveness for our sins when we ask for mercy.

Therefore friend, rejoice in God when in sickness, for He will not allow you to see corruption but restore your health.

1 Peter 2:24

 “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.” — 1 Peter 2:24

The Lord Jesus showed humility by punishing us severely and dying for our sins.

He had to endure scourging, lashings, beatings, and humiliation in our place because He was crucified for our sins and pierced for our disobedience.

He stood in our place so we could be whole—spiritually and physically. Confidently declare that Christ has bore sickness, bringing healing to your body. Amen!


What’s more, if we can live with Christ, the author, and giver of life, and learn to abide in Him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, we will be healed.

There is forgiveness and restoration fellowship for us to receive from the Lord Jesus Christ, but only when we have turned to God in faith. It is never too late, but healing requires this turn. God wants us healed today.
