Healing School 101: Sickness Can’t Keep Us Down!

Healingby Leigh Ann Merrell Soesbee

How important it is for us to realize that receiving our healing is easy—it’s simple. Jesus is the Healer, and He took, bore, and carried every sickness and disease so that we wouldn’t have to (Isa. 53:4–5; 1 Peter 2:24). It is not the will of God for us to be sick but for us to walk in life and divine health.

Right now, whether it feels like it or not, healing and wholeness are ours. In the natural, we’re hooked up with our five senses. We’re moved by what we see, feel, and hear. We’re moved by this natural realm because we’re human. But God wants us to be moved by what we believe—by what His Word says (2 Cor. 5:7).

The moment we were born again, the Spirit of the living God came to dwell in us (John 14:17; Rom. 8:11). And the more we hear the Word, the more aware we’ll be of God’s faith, ability, and healing power on the inside.

God is—love, joy, peace, strength, and health—He is in us.

He should be more real to us than anything else in this life.

When I became the Coordinator of the Prayer and Healing Center, wouldn’t you know the devil attacked me! (When God promotes you, the enemy is going to try to stop you.)

I was in excruciating pain from a ruptured disk and sciatic nerve problems in my right leg. If you’ve ever had back problems, you know that you can’t even move, let alone walk. There were times I just wanted to go home to be with Jesus because it hurt so badly. We’ve probably all been there at some time!

But I had to make a decision. I had to decide that no matter what I felt like, I was healed. When I made that decision, and when I began to stir up the life of God in me by speaking the Word, every pain disappeared!

The devil will knock on our door, and He’s going to try to get us to look out the window at that sickness and disease. He’ll try and put pain on us. But the whole time he’s doing that, deep on the inside of us where God lives, there’s life! There’s healing, and it’s ours for the taking.

We’re not meant to live an ordinary life; we’re meant to live a supernatural life in Christ.

The Bible says that when we walk, God walks. When we talk, God talks. God is bigger than who we are in our natural bodies, and He wants us to live in a place of light and revelation—a place of divine health.

It’s time for us to speak what the Word of God says and get a revelation of Who is in us. We can walk triumphantly through any situation, because we have God Almighty dwelling on the inside. There’s no problem—no sickness or disease—that can keep us down!

Healing Testimony

“I developed a kidney stone and was unable to work. The pain was excruciating, and I had an appointment with my urologist to schedule surgery. On the day of the appointment, I came to morning Healing School. During the private ministry time with the healing technicians, the pain I experienced while sitting went away. We agreed that the stones would dissolve and pass, and that there would be no more pain and no surgery.By 2 p.m. part of the large stone—which was prompting the surgery— had passed from my body. According to an X-ray, the rest of it had passed to my bladder. The urologist pronounced me out of harm’s way, with no further need of surgery. Glory to God! I am so grateful.”
