Topic: God Wants You Healed [TREM Devotional Friday June 1, 2018]
“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5
The text above tells us the reason why Jesus passed through all that He did; it was for you and I. On His way to the cross, He was beaten, bruised; His entire body was lacerated, so that you and I can live healed. As a child of God, divine health is part of your salvation package, and you are to accept nothing less. Christ paid the price on the cross, so that you can be free from sickness and disease. Throughout the gospels, there were several incidences where Jesus healed people. Acts 10:38 says “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him” (KJV).
Sickness is not of God; it is an oppression of the devil, and Jesus came to set you completely free. Beloved, do not tolerate any work of the adversary; wherever you see it in operation, you must resist it in every area of your life, do not give him any room. The price has been paid, you have a right to be healed and to live in divine health, therefore, do not put up with any sickness or disease; command your body to obey the Word of God. It does not matter what the sickness is called, the Bible says there’s a name above every other name, Jesus the Son of the living God.
Therefore, in the name of Jesus, I command every sickness, disease and infirmity to leave your body right now; from the crown of your head to the soles of your feet, let every part begin to function in the perfection to which God has created it. I declare that you are made whole, in Jesus’ name. You will enjoy divine health, it is your heritage.
