Step 10




BE AS WISE AS THE WISE MEN THAT CAME TO SEE JESUS AND SEEK FIRST HIS KINGDOM: Seek God first in all we do and then see healings. Seeking the world first will give you the world, but seeking God first will bring you the Kingdom of Heaven and all its promises!


The first thing we must do is to place God first in our lives. That means approaching God in everything we do and considering Him first in all we do. Then, the things of the world can fall into place as God allows. This is quite contrary to the normal way of life where we live for ourselves, then give God a little time. We think doing our service to God will satisfy Him, however, when you study the Bible you will find it to be quite the opposite. And, it’s not a matter of satisfying God, it’s for our own good. In other words, it’s a path to receiving the rewards of Gods Kingdom here on Earth. Why? Because we belong to Gods Kingdom not Satan's. Remember, Satan can't touch you unless God allows it (see the book of Job) so don't give God a reason to allow it! 

Do not get frustrated. Follow these principals a little at a time, the same way God gave the promised land to His people one city at a time! God is long-suffering, and thank Him for that! Be long-suffering for others as He is to you.


Matthew 6:33

But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things (food, clothing, provision, protection, desires etc.) will be added to you.


Psalm 105:4

Seek the LORD and His strength;

Seek His face continually.

NOTE: The verses and precepts herein are spiritual in nature. Practical applications, like proper foods etc., are not covered. The main point to be made is that the taking care of the spirit man will enable one to follow and change the practical things of life, which is why Jesus says we can do nothing aside from Him. Do the spiritual work and the practical will naturally flow.


Do not rely on your own strength:


Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.


We are not to act like the world or carry on the business thereof as they do. Jesus was praying to the Father in John 17, starting with verse; 13 But now I come to You; and these things I speak in the world so that they may have My joy made full in themselves. 14 I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth. 18 As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19 For their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth. 20 “I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; 21 that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.

Take Courage

Psalm 31:24

Be strong and let your heart take courage,

All you who wait for the LORD.

Haggai 2:4

But now take courage, Zerubbabel,’ declares the LORD, ‘take courage also, Joshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and all you people of the land take courage,’ declares the LORD, ‘and work; for I am with you,’ declares the LORD of armies.

Matthew 9:22

But Jesus, turning and seeing her, said, “Daughter, take courage; your faith has made you well.” And at once the woman was made well.

Mark 10:46-52


46 Then they came to Jericho. And later, as He was leaving Jericho with His disciples and a large crowd, a beggar who was blind named Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, was sitting by the road. 47 And when he heard that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” 48 Many were sternly telling him to be quiet, but he kept crying out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” 49 And Jesus stopped and said, “Call him here.” So they called the man who was blind, saying to him, “Take courage, stand up! He is calling for you.” 50 And throwing off his cloak, he jumped up and came to Jesus. 51 And replying to him, Jesus said, “What do you want Me to do for you?” And the man who was blind said to Him, “Rabboni (my master), I want to regain my sight!” 52 And Jesus said to him, “Go; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he regained his sight and began

following Him on the road.


Be careful how you speak, that is, speak good things about yourself and your health and do not own your sickness, ever. This is VERY IMPORTANT!!!:


Proverbs 18:21

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

NOTE: Speak the Word about health and healing on yourself whether it is seen or not…that would be what we call FAITH, “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”

But sometimes we need to take what we want by force:


Matthew 11:12

From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force. [Sometimes we have to get angry and take what is ours in Christ!]

Remember this important passage from God:

Deuteronomy 30:15-20

15 “See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity;16 in that I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and multiply, and that the LORD your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it.17 But if your heart turns away and you will not obey, but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them, 18 I declare to you today that you shall surely perish. You will not prolong your days in the land where you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess it.19 I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life [and speak life] in order that you may live, you and your descendants, 20 by loving the LORD your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”



God says in Psalm 139:13-14:

13 For You formed my inward parts;

You wove me in my mother’s womb.

14 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully (in awe) and wonderfully made;

Wonderful are Your works,

And my soul knows it very well.


Therefore, we must know that we are fearfully (in awe of what God has done) and wonderfully made way before being compromised by the world and its ways and stresses. It seems many times we are in faith that we are healed but our bodies are being compromised by some of the things we are doing outside of Gods realm and therefore possibly defeating our healing. Here are some things to focus on.

Focus on These Things for Good Health…

Previous chapters identify areas to work on in your life, namely, building faith that God has healed us, understanding spiritual warfare, humbling ourselves (getting rid of pride and trusting the Lord), understanding and learning from trials, hoping in the Lord by believing what He says in the Word, overcoming sin with Gods help while at the same time not feeling condemned and actively speaking/praying to God about everything and not piercing ourselves with many sorrows by pursuing things and money of the world over God.


1 Timothy 6:6-10

6 Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. 7 After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it. 8 So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content. 9 But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows.


NOTE: Our culture focuses much on money and belongings (materialism) and in many situations making money the root of their decisions: however, much study must be done in the Bible to see God’s way of life…which results in victory.


Philippians 4:8-9

8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. 9 The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you. COMMENT: Satan corrupts the world and wants us to dwell on it to destroy us in our souls, so don’t let him win, rather dwell on the things above.


Proverbs 16:24

Pleasant words are a honeycomb,

Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.


Galatians 5:22-23

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.


Proverbs 17:22

A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.


NOTE: Very important to study how to get joy in your life because it is “good medicine”. The Book of Psalms especially tells us how to obtain joy. Read it and receive its message.


Proverbs 14:30 NLT

A peaceful heart [full of love, forgiveness and mercy] leads to a healthy body; jealousy is like cancer in the bones.


Ephesians 4:32

Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.


Mark 11:25 NLT

"Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you your transgressions.”


Matthew 18:21-22

21 Then Peter came and said to Him, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” 22 Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.


1 Timothy 4:8

...for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.


Luke 6:27-29

27 “But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. 29 Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also; and whoever takes away your coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either.

Romans 12:14

14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.


NOTE: Do these next three things (even though against your nature) and your life will be changed for the good according to the Word of God!!!


Proverbs 23:17-18

17 Do not let your heart envy sinners, but live in the fear of the LORD always. 18 Surely there is a future, And your hope will not be cut off.


Luke 6:37

“Do not judge, and you will not be judged; and do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; pardon, and you will be pardoned.


Proverbs 3:1-2

1 My son, do not forget my teaching,

But let your heart keep my commandments;

2 For length of days and years of life

And peace they will add to you.

And of utmost importance, we must speak out that we are healed with any verse you wish in this book or another one that applies to you in the Bible…to speak sickness on ourselves will certainly confirm that sickness. To speak something like “I am healed in the name of Jesus, renewed like the eagle” will keep it in your mind and heart.

Walking in the way of the Lord is important


All of Psalm 119 is extremely important…Go to your Bible and take some time to read it quietly and thoughtfully.


Isaiah 56:1-3 (The Way)

Be just and fair to all, the Lord God says. Do what’s right and good, for I am coming soon to rescue you. Blessed is the man who refuses to work during my Sabbath days of rest, but honors them; and blessed is the man who checks himself from doing wrong. And my blessings are for Gentiles (non-Jews), too, when they accept the Lord;


Isaiah 58:13-14 (The Way)

If you keep the Sabbath holy, not having your own fun and business on that day, but enjoying the Sabbath and speaking of it with delight as the Lord’s holy day, and honoring the Lord in what you do, not following your own desires and pleasure, nor talking idly--- then the Lord will be your delight, and I will see to it that you ride high, and get your full share of the blessings I promised to Jacob, your father. The Lord has spoken.
