Psalm 107:20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
Under the Old Testament, the Word that God sent was spoken through the prophets. Under the New Testament, the Word He sent was the Lord Jesus Christ.
John's Gospel says:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. John 1:1-3
Then verse 14 says, "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us..."
The Lord Jesus Christ is called "The Word." So how did God send His Word to heal you? He sent Jesus to take your infirmities and bear your sicknesses (Matt. 8:17). In the mind of God, you're already healed. 1 Peter 2:24 says, "...by whose stripes ye WERE healed."
God sent His Word and healed you. If you need healing, I dare you to hold fast to that confession and not say anything to the contrary. Don't say, "Yeah, but I'm hurting."
I guarantee you that if you'll hold fast to that one confession and not negate it by saying, "But I still have this and I still have that," you'll be alright. Your symptoms will disappear.
Now it won't work if you try it for a day or two. God's Word works by acting on it confidently and consistently.
God's Word works by being a doer of it. Act like God's Word is so, because it is! Since He sent His Word and healed you, count it as done in your life and act like it!
