10 Life Support Scriptures To Fight The Spirit Of Infirmity

There are life support scriptures that can help us to fight the spirit of infirmity.  In this blog post I want to share with you 10 Bible Verses that will most definitely help you as you deal with your own infirmities. These scriptures will not only remind you of the power you have over illnesses but they will also help you to activate this power.

Isn’t it amazing that if God is for us then nothing or no one can be against us? What sweet Gospel when we learn that Christ gives us everlasting life through His death and resurrection. Perhaps you can be encouraged by the fact that our God is a consuming fire who gives life to the lifeless and extends His tender mercies to all who call on Him. Indeed, it is ravishing that in our deadness our good God breathes His breath of love to resuscitate us. Take a deep breath and ponder on the reality that God who is rich in love is also rich in grace. As we are faced with the fact of our infirmities we can find solace in the Holy presence of our ever present God.

We live in a world that is filled with diverse types and levels of sicknesses and diseases. It will not take us long to figure out that illnesses have come to take our lives away. Yet the Bible says that Christ has borne our infirmities and carried our diseases.  There are some instances where God allows these agents to affect us for a while to prove His power in a greater way. In fact what the enemy meant for our harm God can turn it for our good. This means that even in the midst of our infirmities God can work His goodness, for His name’s sake. 

Yet, this doesn’t take away the fact that satan wants to use the spirit of infirmity to snatch away the life of God’s people. Nonetheless we have power over every spirit through the grace and power of our living God. As we believe we will receive healing from the His hands.

Believing is Healing

The Book of Hebrews teaches us a lot about faith. It says that faith is the substance of the things hoped for and the evidence of the things not seen. This means that if we hope for healing by faith we can have evidence of our healing though we have not yet seen it. In other words, as we believe in our healing we will receive it through our faithful God. It doesn’t matter how impossible our situations might seem, as we trust God, the impossible becomes possible.

In Mark 5 we learn about a woman who had been bleeding for 12 years. The Bible says that as Jesus passes by the woman touched His garment and was healed in that very moment. This woman believed that even if she touched the tip of Jesus’ garment she would be healed, and by faith she touched Him. As this woman touched Jesus, He said to her “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” This scripture proves that our faith can heal us. As we believe in the healing of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the scripture will fulfill in our lives that says “Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

Confessing You Sins In Your Sickness

Confession is a great part of our healing process. We must confess our sins to God, and to one another, that we might be healed. The truth about sin is that it is a hindrance to our healing. It will both cause us to become sick from the first place and then hinder us from being healed. As a result, our first step to healing is to confess our sins in order to remove this blockage. 

The Bible says that the wages of sin is death and so if we play with sin too long it will eventually kill us. Yet as we confess our sins to the Most High God He will resurrect us with renewed power. Consider that the way to eternity is confession.


The following is a list of ten life support scriptures that will surely help you as you struggle with any for of infirmity. Don’t ever forget that healing is available to you. Reach out and touch Him. Let’s have a look.

1. "Surely he has borne our infirmities and carried our diseases; yet we accounted him stricken, struck down by God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the punishment that made us whole, and by his bruises we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have all turned to our own way, and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all"

Our caring Saviour has taken our diseases on Himself in the greatest act of love. He has foreshadowed our suffering and has made a way through His grace. As we suffer with our infirmities we should be reminded that He was wounded for our transgressions. We should also know that it is by His stripes that we are healed. This is great hope for us, as we travel through our sicknesses. Don’t be discouraged. If God is for us then no sickness or disease can be against us.

2. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

When we endure to the very last mile we can be assured that God will eventually wipe away the tears from our eyes. This is the hope in our infirmities that in the end our sorrows will be gone away. We should seek to endure our infirmities, regardless of their severity, knowing that as we endure to the end we will receive our crown of healing. There is a heavenly Kingdom in which there will be no more sickness or death. As we walk through the valley of the shadow of death let us hold to this hope, that with God every little thing will be alright.

3. He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

One of our greatest weapon is the Word of God. The Word is powerful enough to heal us. In our sicknesses we must both take in and spew out the Word of God. We must declare with confidence the power of the Word of God. As we do this we can be assured of our healing, knowing that the every Word of God is pure.

4. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all.

Our afflictions might be many but God’s grace is more than sufficient. As we believe in God and trust in Him, He is faithful enough to heal us. Many times our afflictions are so many that we wonder if there can ever be a way out. Yet Christ is the Way out of every sickness and disease. We must resolve that even in death we can be assured of a heavenly home where there will be no more pain, or weeping.

5. Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

This is one of my favourite scriptures and one that offers us great hope. Imagine that our God is always with us, regardless of the infirmities that wound us. In this we can be assured that our great physician will heal us at the appointed time. There is a time when we must endure our infirmities and there is also a time for our healing. We must be assured of this as we experience our suffering.

6. This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. 51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”

7. Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.

Even though we might long for physical healing, but our great healing is in the Spirit. Jesus Christ said that we must not fear the one who can affect our physical bodies but rather Him who is able to cast our souls into hell. As we travel with our infirmities we can be strengthened with the reality that our true healing is eternal life. We must be opened to the fact that the outward body must perish in order for the Spirit to truly live. This means that even if we dies in our infirmities we have a greater hope which is eternal life in Christ.

8. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

As you believe in God you will never perish. Your reward will be eternal life. This life is greater than every sickness and disease. This doesn’t mean that we won’t be wounded, it only means that we will always overcome. For sure it is not by might, nor by power, but it is by the spirit of God that we will overcome.

9. The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, To turn one away from the snares of death.

10. "You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world."

As we battle our infirmities, our great victory is in the One that we walk with and Who lives inside of us. The fact that we are from God means that we have overcome all our enemies (including our infirmities.) This is because God is greater than all. The scripture says that at the sound of the name of Jesus every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. The spirit of infirmity will have to bow down at the feet of Jesus. This is why our safe haven is in the arms of Jesus Christ, the conquering Lion of the tribe of Judah. 

Concluding Thoughts

There are life support scriptures that can greatly help us in our infirmities. These scriptures can trigger healing in our outward bodies but more importantly in our souls. Our true healing is when we are saved from the eternal damnation of death. As a result we must not only seek healing in our physical bodies but we must also seek spiritual healing.

Don’t be discouraged. Be assured that Christ has taken our sicknesses upon Himself in the greatest act of love. He has also swallowed up death with His resurrection power. We can therefore hope in the fact that the victory for our healing has already been handed to us by His grace.

Regardless of the infirmity you experience, you can be confident that no sickness, or disease, can prevent you from experiencing His eternal Life. May God continue to bless you, and heal you as you believe.
