A Look at Healing from two points...positional and experiential

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who FORGIVES ALL thine iniquities, who HEALS ALL of thy diseases, who redeemeth thy life from destruction…” (Psalms 103:1-4)
God has provided healing through Redemption, and is the standard God has set for ALL His children to experience here on earth. Jesus paid the price for our freedom: spirit, soul and body, and the responsibility falls on us to come into agreement with the revealed will of God for our lives. (2 Tim. 2:15) (Amos 3:3)
In order to experience “that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” for healing, it is imperative that we find out what God has to say about a subject near and dear to His heart, as His name is also Rapha, our Physician. Proverbs 4:20-22 reveals that God’s words and sayings are life and health to all our flesh. The word health is “marpe” in Hebrew, which comes from the word “rapha”, which comes from the word for physician. To this day in Israel, when a person goes to the doctor, they say they are going to Rapha. (Romans 12:2)
In the mind of God, we have already been forgiven, already been healed, already been redeemed from destruction. He has provided everything we need to reach the position He has placed us in, and our part is get the seed planted. For the word to grow, we must hear, read, meditate, speak out the word and become a doer of the truth we hear. (Isaiah 53:5; Mt. 13:3; 23; James 1:25)
By being a doer of the word, we will begin to experience what God has for us. As we begin to speak the same thing He has revealed about who we are, and who Christ is in us, and the position He’s placed us in concerning healing, we will find ourselves walking more and more in the divine health He has provided through the whipping post. (1 Peter 2:24)
James 1:25 says that as we look into the perfect law of liberty, and continue therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
Recently I visited a little church, and the woman who plays the piano there is someone I have prayed for before. I saw her walking with a limp, and so after church I was talking to her about it. I told her we could have that leg grow out immediately, and she said, “I know that God can do that standing right here.” I saw the same look on her face when she didn’t want me to pray for her knees so she wouldn’t have to go through knee surgery. Then I remembered that she didn’t want to be healed. She actually loves the attention and benefits that her sickness gives her. Her experience has hindered her from reaching the position God has already placed her in.
In my own personal life, I had an accident one day while toting a big storage crate and my little finger hit the door frame and bent it backwards. The pain was excruciating, and I found myself holding my finger. Suddenly I heard a loud voice telling me about a broken finger, the ER, the bruising, the swelling, and the numbness, until I remembered, “hey, this is not who I am!” I began to open and close my hand while at the same time proclaiming, “The righteous suffers no broken bone, there will be no bruising, no swelling, no numbness” as each of these symptoms appeared in my finger. There was no bruising in the finger, the numbness left, and the finger did not swell, though it did “feel” swelled. The next day I was yanking kudzu vines down out of a tree that had been there for years. In writing this story, I realized I have positioned myself for healing by believing and acting on the good and acceptable and perfect will of God for healing.
