Healing And Deliverance: 44 Powerful Bible Verses

By David Small •  Updated: 02/10/22 •  11 min read

Healing and deliverance are two major aspects of our salvation experience.

It is God’s pleasure to heal you of all your illnesses and deliver you from the enemy’s grasp.

Faith in God is one of the ways we activate these salvation benefits in our life.

Even a mustard seed of faith has the power to move mountains of sickness, disease, and demonic tyranny out of our lives.

However, there is such a thing as strong faith, and we build this strong faith by hearing God’s Word.

God has given us His Word in the Bible, which we can use to build a foundation of faith. Every moment we open God’s Word, we have access to His healing and delivering power.
