Re: Healed By His Wounds
Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.
Isaiah 53:4-5 NIV
Isaiah Chapter 53 is further proof of Jesus’ love for us and His desire for us to be healthy and whole. He Himself paid the heavy price for you to be able to live in perfect health.
He was bruised and scourged violently beyond human recognition by the Roman torture equipment. This he had to endure for us to enjoy peace.
He was physically wounded for our sake. He was disgracefully crucified. He bore our shame and took our pain. He was carrying our sin and its consequences in his body. The curse of sin died with Him and He rose to give us victory.
Glory to God.
He paid the heavy price for our peace, healing and wholeness. Sickness has no right to be in your body! 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!
Beloved, 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!
My Father, My Father.. Your word is clear about my health. Sickness has no place in my body. I receive the blessing of sound health now in Jesus name.
