21 Days of Prayer & Fasting
Topic: #PRAYFIRST | SUPERNATURAL HEALING
Isaiah 53:5 (NKJV) - But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.
Healing in our bodies is a part of the work of the cross. Jesus did not just die for our sins, but for the healing of our body, soul, and spirit. Just look at what the verse says in the book of Isaiah.
1. Wounded for our transgressions.
Our sins wound us in the depths of our soul. They separate us from God. The work of the cross changed that. Jesus was wounded for our transgressions so they would not be able to wound us anymore.
2. Bruised for our iniquities
Bruises can happen on the inside of us. Each of us have wounds that we carry on the inside of our emotions. Jesus was bruised so we did not have to carry the emotional pain anymore.
3. Chastised for our peace
Separated from God we can find no peace. Jesus came to bring peace to our lives.
4. By His stripes we are healed
Jesus' body was beaten and bore strips on His back for us. His body was broken so ours could be healed.
According to this verse everything that we need to receive supernatural healing is found in the work of the cross. Jesus gave His life so we could receive healing.
Our job is not to manage the outcome, but to pray the prayer of faith.
James 5:15 - And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.
We don not fully understand why some people do not receive physical healing. Our job is not to understand, but to stand on the Word of God and believe for healing.
In 2018 I want us to be a church that believes Jesus still heals people's bodies. When we encounter a person that is suffering from sickness let's be committed to believing God for supernatural healing.
Jesus is still in the business of healing people. In 2018 let's make up our mind we are going to pray and believe for God's healing power over people. Our prayer is that it would be a testimony to the power of the cross and the goodness of Jesus.
