Psalms 103:1-6
Bless and affectionately praise the Lord, O my soul,
And all that is [deep] within me, bless His holy name.
Bless and affectionately praise the Lord, O my soul,
And do not forget any of His benefits;
Who forgives all your sins,
Who heals all your diseases;
Who redeems your life from the pit,
Who crowns you [lavishly] with loving kindness and tender mercy;
Who satisfies your years with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the [soaring] eagle.
The Lord executes righteousness
And justice for all the oppressed.

Psalms 103:3 is one of my favorite verses, it says, "Who forgives all your sins, who heals all your diseases;"
When I first received the revelation that God wants us well and already paid the price for my healing, that was the scripture I quoted most often.  It didn't matter what I saw because the truth was that HE HEALED ALL MY DISEASES!
V3 is a reference to what Christ did for us on the cross- it is already a finished work.  Healing, forgiveness, a redeemed life, loving kindness, tender mercy, a satisfied life, renewed youth, and good things are all benefits that already belong to us as children of God.
Maybe you don't 'see' evidence of those benefits in your life right now, but the more you acknowledge them and receive them- the more you will 'see' them!
I remember looking at myself in the mirror, still bald, saying "By His stripes, I am healed", "I have long, strong, thick, beautiful hair!"
The Bible is true and His Word works!  Don't forget His benefits.
Today, praise the Lord for all He has done!
