The word of God is living and active
For the word of God is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and is able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
This scripture is particularly beautiful in the Amplified Bible which brings out the full, rich meaning.
For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 Amplified

Jesus has already paid for our healing
Who his own self bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live to righteousness; by whose stripes you were healed.
1 Peter 2:24
The Bible verse of the day is a scripture on healing. It is also a Bible verse on peace and grace.
There are Christian believers who have taken this scripture by faith and have been healed of physical diseases and sicknesses. By believing and praying in faith that this scripture would be a reality in their lives healing had manifested in their bodies. Other Christians have taken communion affectionately remembering the Lord’s body that was broken for us. Others have had the elders of their church anoint them with oil. Other believers have hands laid upon them.

A prayer to know Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour
Dear Father God in Heaven
I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Romans 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me!
In Jesus’ Name I pray.
If you have prayed this prayer sincerely you have been born again. This means that God, now your Father, sees you as His child. He also sees your past erased and your sins forgiven because of what the Lord Jesus did on the cross for you. This is what grace means – undeserved favour from God. You now have confidence towards God and have nothing to fear when you die because to depart the body is to be forever with the Lord.
Now, would be a good time to find other Christian believers – a church that preaches the Word of God. Also, it may not be easy to understand at first, but, read the Bible and the Holy Spirit will enable you to understand more and more each day – it’s a lifetime’s joyful study for all of us. A good place to start is John’s Gospel and then Paul’s letters to the Romans. Also, you can pray to the Father in the Name of Jesus and He will hear your prayers. You can also ask for the Holy Spirit to baptise you in his power and love – this will enable you to understand the Bible and strengthen you in your daily walk with God. There is so much more to be said about the Holy Spirit but Jesus promised that when He returned to the Father the Holy Spirit would come and comfort and help the believers until the Lord’s return.
