Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole (The Amplified Bible).The last phrase of that verse means a great deal to me. I love the fact that it says, “We are healed and made whole.” It doesn’t say that one day we will be healed and made whole. It doesn’t say that possibly, if it’s the will of the Lord, we might be healed and made whole. It says we already are! If you have sickness in your body today, you might be tempted to argue with me about that. You might say, “Hey, I’m hurting right now. I’ve been to the doctor and he says I’m sick. I even have X-rays to prove it. How can you say I am healed?” I’m not the one saying it. God is the One who said it in His Word—I’m just quoting Him. He’s given us the good news that the price for sickness (which entered the world through sin) has been paid! So if you’ve given your heart to Jesus, you don’t have to pay the price of sickness anymore. Your healing has already been provided. You can simply receive it by faith and go! In Part 2 of this series, I’m going to teach you how to receive your healing by faith. You can be healed from heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid disorders, depression, bi-polar disorder, autoimmune disease, irritable bowel disorder, cancer or any other disease the enemy has put on you…in fact, by faith you already have been!
