“He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his stripes you have been healed.” (1 Peter 2:24 ESV)
“But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace and with his stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5 ESV)
I was listening to Joy FM the other day. They have this segment where you tell your story in 99 seconds. This lady was talking about having bipolar disease. She said she will have it the rest of her life. She must not read the Bible or have very little faith. Doesn’t she know Jesus died for us? Doesn’t she know by his stripes we are healed?
Jesus died for our sins. By his stripes we are healed. I guess I should have called this having faith enough for healing. Because that is what is needed. All you need is mustard seed size faith. If your faith is that strong, God can work with it. But you have to take the first step. Step out in faith. Ask God to heal you then believe He has done it and start praising him for your healing.
It may take awhile but remember it’s God’s timing, not ours. If it was our timing it would be done yesterday. But then how could you grow your faith? There would be no need for faith if everything was done instantly.
So exercise your faith and put your needs in God’s hands. He is still on the throne and still doing miracles.
