If you need healing, but are not sure if God is willing to give it to you, sit back and ask yourself this: If God willingly gave Jesus up for me, would He withhold healing from me? Now, if God withholds your healing after He has already given you Jesus, then it would mean that your healing is greater or more important than Jesus. No my friend, your heavenly Father has already given you heaven’s best. So how will He not also freely give you all things, including the healing and wholeness you desire? With Jesus comes every good thing!
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? (Romans 8:32 KJV)
By Jesus’ Stripes You Are Healed!
Isaiah 53 is proof forevermore of Jesus’ love for you and His desire for you to be healthy and whole. How important is your health and wholeness to Him? It’s so important that He Himself paid the heavy price for you to be able to live healthy and whole.
Majority of us have seen movies or pictures displaying the suffering of Jesus on the cross with some wounds on His body. The truth is that it portrayed only a fraction of what our Lord really suffered. He was actually scourged violently beyond human recognition by the Roman torture equipment. His flesh was shredded to the point His bones were exposed, starkly white amidst the blood and torn muscles. He bore the stripes so that we don’t have to. His body was broken so that ours can be whole. And by His stripes, we have been healed!
Dear reader, instead of focusing on the negative health report from your doctor, focus on the heavenly report that by Jesus’ stripes you are healed. Believe it in your heart. Declare it with your mouth. And begin to experience it in your body!
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:4-5 KJV)
God Is Able And Willing To Heal You
There was a leper who came to Jesus saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean” (Matthew 8:2). This man didn’t have a problem believing that Jesus had the ability and power to heal him. He just wasn’t sure if Jesus was willing to do it for him.
Look at Jesus’ response to the leper and see God’s heart for you where healing is concerned. Jesus answered the leper by touching him and saying, “I am willing; be cleansed” (Matthew 8:3).
Again, what did Jesus say? “I am willing.” Did He just say it and do nothing? No, He stretched forth His hand to the leper and restored the afflicted man to wholeness.
Dear friend, God wants you to know that He is both able AND willing to heal you. Start to realize and believe that He wants you healed!
A Righteous Foundation For Your Healing
Your sins have all been forgiven because of Jesus. At the cross, He bore your sins and was punished to the full by the fiery wrath of God. He did a perfect work of removing all your sins once and for all, that’s why He could cry out, “IT IS FINISHED!”
Dear much-loved by Jesus brother and sister, the wall of sin that once stood between you and God has been broken down by the finished work of Jesus. His blood shed at Calvary has washed away all your sins and released a flood tide of God’s blessings, which include your healing and health.
Today, you have a righteous and rock-solid foundation for your forgiveness and healing—Jesus and His finished work. Your sins have all been righteously forgiven. And God’s abundant supply of grace and healing has been released to you. Simply reach out and receive your healing!
Partake Your Way To Wholeness
When you remember how Jesus willingly came to save you and suffer for your healing at the cross, it will cast out every fear of not receiving healing from Him.
That’s what partaking of the Holy Communion is about. When you hold the bread in your hand, simply remember how Jesus’ body was broken at the cross so that yours may be healed and whole. Say, “Lord Jesus, thank You for bearing my condition on Your own body at the cross. Also, when the lashes fell across Your back at the scourging post, my condition died. It has no right to linger in my body!”
Likewise, when you partake of the cup, remember that Jesus shed His blood to cleanse you. Say, “Jesus, thank You for Your shed blood that has washed away all my sins and made me righteous. Because I am righteous in Your sight, healing belongs to me. I receive Your healing and resurrection life for my body right now.”
For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. (1 Corinthians 11:23-25 KJV)
Treasured friend, remember the Lord and partake your way to divine health!
