Good Monday morning my brothers and sisters! We are going to look at some more promises that are for you today and everyday. Last week, we looked at we are world overcomers and that we now can live our lives by “the faith of Jesus Christ” and that we are redeemed from the curse and because of that, we can live in the blessings that were promised to us.
Today, if you need healing, or know someone who does, settle it in your heart that it is God’s Will for you to be well. The following verses should be seeds that you let get deep into the garden in your heart!
Matthew 8:16 & 17
16 When evening came, they brought to Him many who were under the power of demons, and He drove out the spirits with a word and restored to health all who were sick.
17 and thus He fulfilled what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah; He Himself took [in order to carry away] our weaknesses and infirmities and bore away our diseases. (This was Jesus showing us what was in our redemption when He would go to the cross, that He would bare everything that was fallen in us, so we can be all that He is and purchase back all that we were created to be)!
I love that Jesus showed us while He was here on earth that this is what His Father’s will was and still is for His people to live in health, even as their souls prosper. 3 John 2
Isaiah 53: 4 & 5
4 Surely He has borne our grief’s (sicknesses, weaknesses and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy]
5 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 verses above are what was prophesied of the Messiah. How wonderful that it all came to pass and still is today!
1 Peter 2:24
24 He personally bore our sins in His [own] body on the tree [as on an altar and offered Himself on it], that we might die (cease to exist) to sin and live to righteousness. By His wounds you have been (were) healed.
Here is the promise now after the cross of Christ. I love in the Passion translation it says, ” Our instant healing flowed from His wounding”!
2 For the law of the Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of the our new being] had freed me from the law of sin and death.
We are not bound to the law of sin and death. We live under a new law, called the Law of the Spirit of Life and that Life lives in you!
11 And if the Spirit of Him who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
The meaning of the phrase “give life” also means to “preserve” life in your mortal (physical) body that you live in right now.
Let these Words build the foundation in your heart that it is always God’s will to heal!
Remember, you are Loved, you are Righteous and you are His!
