Do you need healing? Do you long to be healthy and fit? Then there is good news for you: Jesus is your healer!
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 53,5
If you are sick, that is the truth you need to claim for yourself. By Jesus wounds you are healed! The doctor may have given you a negative report, maybe he even robbed you of any hope that it will ever get better with you. Jesus also gave you a report, namely that you have been healed by his wounds. Now you have to decide which report you believe: the report of the doctor or the report of Jesus? Sometimes it is hard for us to believe the invisible. Having the disease in sight and feeling all the symptoms often seems so much more real than the fact that by his wounds we are healed. But faith is about believing what you can not see yet.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Hebrews 11,1
Faith sees the invisible. If you can see something you don’t have to have faith for it. Believing for healing means to accept the truth of Jesus and to turn your eyes away from the sickness and towards Jesus. You consider Jesus’ word as true that by his wounds you are healed. You claim healing for yourself by thanking Jesus that you are healed. The same way you receive a gift from someone and thank the person for it, you receive healing from Jesus and thank him for it. And when doubts arise, you place yourself on the foundation of the word of God and speak out the truth over your situation.
Jesus replied, “What is impossible with man is possible with God.” Luke 18,27
There are no hopeless cases with God! The doctor may have told you that there is no hope for you. But Jesus tells you that it is not a problem for him. The doctor can not, but Jesus can! You can not, but Jesus can! When facing sickness, turn your eyes to Jesus and believe his report. By his wounds you are healed! Hold on to it and refuse to let go. Everything is possible with Jesus and he knows how to restore your body. You don’t have to know, understand or fulfill it, your part is to believe Jesus. Do not stress, rest in the knowledge that by Jesus’ wounds you have been healed. And then you just thank him for it. Healing is not a work that you have to fulfill, but a gift that you receive. Gifts are received by saying thank you. Thank Jesus that by his wounds you are healed!
