Psalm 41

Psalm 41

A Page about Healing


Verses 1-3

~ ~ ~ 

An Astonishing message from God.


Psalm 41:1-3 NLT

Oh, the joys of those who are kind to the poor!
    The Lord
rescues them when they are in trouble.

The Lord protects them
    and keeps them alive.
He gives them prosperity in the land
rescues them from their enemies.

The Lord nurses them when they are sick
    and restores them to health.


Those words




full of




God is saying that:


you do those things,
you will be
if you do not. 


you will get rescued from more things.


you will have more prosperity than if you did not.


For the rest of the page,

I will focus on

the topic of

Healing the Body.

And consider visiting out page:

Healing Steps

God's Word is Healthy for our Body.

It is similar to -

eating healthy foods and getting enough rest. 

You can't just buy the healthy food. You have to eat it.

And you can't just have a Bible. You have to read it.

My understanding is that...

if you often speak out Bible verses and often read them,

it activates the promises in the Bible

in some way.

Proverbs 4:20-22

is Amazing...

My child, give attention to my words;
Incline your ear to my sayings.
21 Do not let them depart from your eyes;
Keep them in the midst of your heart;
22 For they are life to those who find them,
health to all their flesh.

Proverbs 4:20-22


Scriptures such Isaiah 51, tell us that

God wants us to speak out

His Words.

God said,

"And I have put my words in your mouth
 and hidden you safely in my hand.
 I stretched out 
the sky like a canopy 
    and laid the foundations of the earth."
Isaiah 51:16 a NLT


Now to be clear,

we live on earth

(not in heaven)

so Bible verses

do not promise us perfect health in this life

or perfection in any area of our life.


God promises that it will be much better for you
- you will be more blessed - 
if you do these things
if you do not.

And God's words in

Psalm 41

are very similar to verses in Isaiah 58.

One of my favorite Bible verses


Isaiah 58:10-11 TLB.

It has similar promises to Psalm 41:1-3.

It says...

Feed the hungry!

Help those in trouble!

Then your light will shine out from the darkness,

and the

darkness around you shall be as bright as day.

11 And the Lord will guide you continually,

and satisfy you with all good things,

and keep you healthy too;

and you will be like a well-watered garden,

like an ever-flowing spring.



Isaiah 58:10-11

and Psalm 41:1

God has instructions attached to the promise.

We are to 

Feed the Hungry and Help those in Trouble.

I often speak out Isaiah 58:10-11.

And I make a goal of

Feeding the Hungry and Helping those in Trouble.

I have seen a difference

in my health and in all areas of blessings from God

as I have done those two things.

I take the Words of God seriously.

Note that;

I give no guarantee to you - just my personal experience.


Love God

Love His Word



Isaiah 58:11

 - in the Hebrew language - 

the idea is to

strengthen the


For example, in the NASB translation

Verse 11 b says...

And give strength to your


And you will be

like a watered garden.


I have noticed that




healthy bones to a healthy body

We see this in the Scriptures below.


I pray for my bones and

speak out these Bible verses to bless my bones.


Pleasant words are a honeycomb,

sweet to the soul and

healing to the bones.

Proverbs 16:24

(Here God is advising us to speak pleasant words.)


Do not be wise in your own eyes;

Fear the Lord and turn away from evil.

It will be healing to your body and

refreshment to your bones.

Proverbs 3:7-8

(Here is our page explaining Fear of the Lord.)


 A merry heart doeth good like a medicine:

but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

Proverbs 17:22 KJV

(God is advising us to cultivate a merry heart.)


The light of the eyes rejoices the heart,

And a good report makes the bones healthy.

Proverbs 15:30 NKJV


A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh,

but envy makes the bones rot.

Proverbs 14:30 ESV


There is no soundness in my flesh Because of Your anger,

Nor any health in my bones Because of my sin.

Psalm 38:3 NKJV

(God is informing us that sin can sometimes make us sick. )


Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am weak:

O Lord, heal me, for my bones are troubled.

Psalm 6:2 NKJV

Bible verses on Facing Death

 If you are facing literal death

from some kind of

sickness, disease or injury,

I would suggest reading and speaking out

Psalm 41:1-2

Oh, the joys of those who are kind to the poor!
    The Lord
rescues them when they are in trouble.

The Lord protects them
    and keeps them alive.

I would also suggest you speak out


Bible verses

on that topic.

See the verses

I have written out further down.



There is

no guarantee

if you regularly speak these verses out 

that you will be healed.

But note:

God's Word is Healthy for our Body.

Like - eating healthy foods and getting enough rest  

Perfect healing is only found in heaven.


I shall not die, but live,

And declare the works of the Lord.

Psalm 118:17 NKJV

I prayed to you, Lord God,
    and you healed me,
 saving me
from death and the grave.

Psalm 30:2-3 CEV

You, Lord, have saved my life from death,
    my eyes from tears,
  my feet from stumbling.

Psalm 116:8-9 CEV

For You have delivered my life from death,

yes, and my feet from falling,

that I may walk

before God in the light of life and of the living.

Psalm 56:13 AMPC

"You will live a long life and see my saving power.”

Psalm 91:16 CEV

My child, if you listen
and obey my teachings,
    you will live a long time.
11 I have shown you the way
    that makes sense;
I have guided you
    along the right path.
12 Your road won't be blocked,
and you won't stumble
    when you run.
13 Hold firmly to my teaching
and never let go.
    It will mean life for you.

Proverbs 4:10-13 CEV
