This word about the “Tree of Life” is for all—but especially for those who have endured illness, or an ongoing emotional or mental battle.

It may relate to you, a person close to you, or someone you have been praying for.

In times like these, the enemy accuses us:
“You are broken. You are flawed. You are inadequate. You lack faith.”

Today, hear Jesus say,

“You are my beloved. You are whole and perfect in my sight. Receive My faith!”


A Vision of the Tree of Life

I was cooking dinner recently, when someone I was praying for to receive healing came to mind.
So, I asked, “Father, is there anything you want to show me?”

And in that moment, I had a vision—an impression. I saw the Tree of Life growing on the inside of her—like the actual trunk of the tree being at the center, at the very core of her being.

I knew in that moment, that tree was symbolic. I was seeing a representation of Christ and His finished work!


Fruit of Eternal Life

What is remarkable about the Tree of Life, is that its fruit gives eternal life to the one who eats it (Gen 3:22-24).

Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.” (John 11:25-26, NKJV)

Christ, who is Life, and is the source of eternal life, lives in you, by His Spirit. [1]
He dwells in and occupies you.

And by faith, you can partake of His life—His fruit— every day.

“Like an apple tree among the trees of the woods, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down in his shade with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.”
(Song of Solomon 2:3 NKJV)


Your Home is the Delight of God

Delight!
In the beginning, the Tree of Life was located at the heart of the garden of Eden.
The name Eden means pleasure, or delight. [Strong’s H5731]
It’s a reminder that your home, now and in eternity is “Delight”—for “in His Presence is fullness of joy” (Psalm 16:11).

More than that, “Delight” is your identity.
It’s who you are to God.

The Lord says, “I am giving you a new name, and you will be known as “my delight is in her (him).” (Isa 62:4)

The Holy Spirit is removing shame, and unbelief. He is infusing you with joy and anticipation.
Hear God say, “You are more than a conqueror” (Rom 8:37).


You are an Overcomer

Jesus invites His overcomers: “Come, eat of the Tree of Life that is in the midst of paradise!” (Revelation 2:7).

In Genesis, the Tree of Life was at the heart of Eden
In Revelation, we find it at the center of paradise.

The Lord wants you to know that you are an overcomer (1 John 4:4).
It’s who you are, to the very core of your identity!

Your track record doesn’t define your victory.
Jesus’ finished work defines your victory. (Gal 3:10-14)

Having a battle or issue of ill-health, is not a contradiction to the truth that Jesus is your Healer.

  • Instead, it becomes the lightning rod—the landing place—for God’s healing power.

You are Ready for Every Journey

When the people of Israel left the slavery of Egypt, there was “none feeble among them” (Psalm 105:37b).

The elderly, the broken—those whose bodies had been abused through hard labor and slavery—
No one left that first Passover supper physically weak.

They walked out through doorways painted with the lamb’s blood—applied by branches of hyssop!
And they emerged, healthy and strong.

Perhaps the enemy has been saying, “You are unable to do what God has called you to do. You don’t have a testimony.”

Jesus says, “You are ready for every journey I have for you!”

  • Affliction or weakness does not define you
  • Your identity is that you are a loved child of God.

You are marked by God, for God.


He says “I am the Lord Who Heals You”

At Marah (meaning bitter) the Israelites came across a spring, but its waters were undrinkable. (See Exodus 15)

Moses cried out to God, and the Lord showed him a tree!
He cast that tree into the waters and a miracle took place.
Those waters were healed.

It speaks of the power of the cross—applied by faith.

At Marah, God declared His covenant name, “I am the Lord who heals you” (Ex 15:26).

Divine Healing is not an event that “sometimes” happens.
Healing is a Person, who is the same yesterday, today and forever (Heb 13:8).


You will Bear Fruit, and You will not Fail

“Freely you have received, freely give” (Matt 10:8b)

“Beloved”, the Lord says, “I have appointed you to bring healing to nations.
And you will be a giver of life to many.”

The Tree of Life appears in the closing chapter of the Bible—in the great finale!
It grows on the banks of the river that flows from the throne of God.
The tree bears twelve kinds of fruit, and its leaves are “for the healing of the nations”. (See Rev 22:2)

The Lord adds in Ezekiel’s vision of the trees by the River of Life,

  • “Their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail.”
  • “Their leaves [will be] for medicine” (Ezek 47:12) [2]

Even as you age, your expectation can be, “Jesus is in me, and His power is working to bring life and healing to my body.
His love and power is being released to others through me!”

Let this word resonate in your whole being today:

“I will not fail!
I will bear fruit, and I will not fail.”


His Power is at Work in Your Body

I believe God is delivering people from fear associated with physical conditions.
You have feared the work of death, but from now on, you will perceive LIFE at work.
For the nature of a tree is that it grows!
It is alive; it transforms; it bears fruit.

Many times, our focus is on unfinished business.
But we can celebrate His finished work:

“By His stripes you were healed”. (1 Peter 2:24)

See by faith, His healing power at work inside of you.
His power is at work in your body.

He is giving life to your soul; life to your will to live.

And you can declare today:
“…the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in me!
And He who raised Christ from the dead is giving life to my mortal body, through His Spirit who dwells in me.” (Based on Romans 8:11)

  1. Praise King Jesus,
    Battles at home and work have intensified, i found out that i was supposed to chased away from work after the dream of having no work station in office. a lady along with the boss have been fighting me to a point that another office in another country have promoted me after 7 years though my boss is still acting towards me as if he has no idea of the promotion, he even went to an extent of not including the group mail in the promotion email.
    i’m applying for a job with a similar job description of the work i’m currently doing. Please stand with me so that i can get that job by Gods grace and favour.
    God bless you, Keep you and make his face shine upon you woman of God.

      1. I receive this prophetic word it’s very relevant to my situations. I’ve been sick for almost 24 months. I’ve done 3 operations already but still bed bound. This has brought a new understanding. I claim my healing today. Please pray for my children who have turned their backs on God and my son has moved out. I claim the promise of family salvation and the returning home of my son.

    You’re marked by God for His purpose and nothing can stop His progress, no matter how long a battle has been going for:

    And having an issue of ill-health is not a contradiction to Jesus being your Healer.
    Instead, it becomes the lightning rod—the landing place—for God’s healing power.

  5. This word so fresh in my spirit, soul and body. I feel energized to declare the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Indeed I will not fail, I will bear much fruit. This is my season. Thank you so much Helen

  6. This whole prophecy spoke directly to me ! I’ve been telling the Lord how broken I feel and repenting for my lack of faith as I’ve cried buckets of tears this year. I now know that is a lie from the enemy. Jesus says, You are my beloved. You are whole and perfect in my sight. Receive My faith!” This touched me deeply and I will repeat it often! I would also appreciate prayers. I have dealt with health issues for 40 years. I also have a 15 year old daughter that has been completed incapacitated for over a year with anxiety and a mystery illness and for the last 4 weeks, my 10 year old daughter has been battling a mystery illness and can hardly get out of bed. I’m trying to remain hopeful and not get discouraged. Thank you!

    1. Hi Lisa, I’m praying for a Divine infusion of His power and strength to touch your household now, in Jesus Name. Healing. New joy, fresh wonder, Your tangible presence Lord. Amen
