1 Peter 2:24 says’ He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.
Isaiah 53:5 says”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.
When it comes to healing many saints struggle and here is the reason why. They don’t trust the Word of God. I am sure there are other reasons but this is the main reason.
When it comes to healing we must first understand that healing does not come from you and I, but that it comes from the Lord. We have to have enough faith to believe the Word of God. Often times when a person prays for healing and they don’t see the manifestation of it right away they assume God is not healing them, (why is it that we must see first in order to believe)? Right there if we must see it in order to believe that God is healing us than we don’t have faith in the Word of God, which immediately tells the Lord that you don’t believe He can heal you. If a person don’t believe in the Word of God than why ask the Lord to heal you?
During Jesus ministry when people asked Him to heal them Jesus asked them one question” do you believe “ theirs responds was “yes”, and they were healed and Jesus told them go and sin no more. Now let’s look at something here shall we? These people who came to Jesus did not have the luxury that you and I have today of reading the Bible, they only heard of Jesus through word of mouth and so they became curious about this man who raised the dead, healed the sick, open the eyes of blind men. Notice that once they saw Jesus and heard Him speak they never doubted that He could not heal them. Why?
Because all their lives they have had the same situations and they needed something to change so they immediately said yes to faith without wavering. This is how we are to respond when we come to the Lord, our faith is not to waver we are to believe He can do it.
Often times we don’t receive because we don’t believe and when the Lord heals us we don’t see it as being healed because we have already placed in our minds how the Lord should heal us and when the Lord chooses to heal us differently than what we expected we say, God did not heal. When in fact the Lord did heal you, He did it His way not your way.
Whatever you are seeking from the Lord don’t put stipulations on the Lord, when you do that you miss your own blessings, God is Divine It’s His Perfect Will not our will okay.
