“Isa 53:5 NIV: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.”
The promises of God in his word are yea and Amen. God never declares what he won’t do. He is the Jehovah Rapha (The Lord our Healer). That is who our God is. He can heal you from any infirmity, physical sickness or emotional distraught.
For consistent readers of the Bible, you would discover a recurring character about God. The character of goodness. God is good at all times, in all seasons and in all situations. God wants the best for us. He never harbors any other thought apart from thoughts that concerns our welfare.
“Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
The thoughts of God concerning us are those that leads to our peace and good health. God desires that we prosper in all things even as our soul prospers. So, you would understand that when you fall sick, God doesn’t want that for you. He wants you to be healthy in body, soul and spirit. There is no doubt about that, God wants you to be wholesome and healthy.
Therefore, when you feel that fever in your body – your body throbbing with pain, or that headache coupled with malaria, I want you to know that God wants you to be healed. He has taken up all our sickness and has given us perfect health in place.
I am a partaker of the healing power of Jesus. I have experienced it in my life. A vivid encounter with the healing power of Jesus was when I was sick during my compulsory service year. It was like I was going to die, I was taking all the drugs and they were not working, I was weak and tired. And I called on the name of Jesus. I called him to help me and he sure did, my cry for his help kick started my healing process.
“Matthew 7:11 (KJV) If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?”
A father will always want what is best for his children. If we being human can give our children the best resources we have, how much more God? He would give all you need to you according to His will. He would give you good health, he will grant you quick recovery and freedom from all forms of diseases and infirmities. Have you sought his face? Have you called on his name for healing? I have all assurance and faith that he will answer you.
Prayers for Healing:
Lord you are my maker, touch every part of my body needing healing and make me whole in the name of Jesus
God, deliver me from the spirit of sickness and grant me perfect health in Jesus name
In Jesus name, Lord, let me live the rest of my in perfect soundness of mind and spirit that I may serve you with all I am.
