What if there was a way to be well without taking drugs? Is it possible?

In our mindset, we think drugs are the answer to most problems, but what if there was another way? Is what we think and say important where our health is concerned?

Man times, I have had symptoms that seemed to indicate I had a serious health issue. I could have resorted to taking drugs. One time a doctor gave me some drug samples and told me to start taking them. I was not convinced this was the answer. I went online to see what the side effects would be. I found out if I did take it, I would be addicted to it for the rest of my life. I decided not to do that.

Instead, I started saying over and over again that "by the stripes of Jesus I have healed." I went back in a few weeks for a checkup and the doctor discovered that I didn't have any more symptoms and told me I was fine. I didn't need to come back. He was right.

Dr. David Yonggi Cho in his book "The 4th Dimension" has a similar testimony. He was diagnosed with tuberculosis as a teenager and he wasn't expected to live more than a few months. He is in his mid-70s today and has the largest Christian church in the world in South Korea. What did he do to get well? He said "by the stripes of Jesus I have been healed" hundreds of times a day.

Why not try it? What have you got to lose? You don't have to quit taking medications you are on to do it. It doesn't cost anything. It could save your life. He is the savior.
