KEY SCRIPTURE: Galatians 1:4 KJV ” Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father”:
In our last study we saw that to be free from some of the troubles of this life, one must doggedly take a stand with the word of God. Sicknesses and diseases are a big threat to human comfort and existence. Our world has been totally altered today, because of diseases. The grace of God gives us answers, even for sicknesses that science and human effort could not solve. The principle is the same. We are saved or healed by grace through faith. The work of grace is what God did for us through His Son Jesus Christ. The Lord Jesus through His stripes have borne our sicknesses and diseases (Isaiah 53:4&5)
OUR healing from God’s point of view is a concluded matter. When Apostle Peter made reference to this, he said, by whose stripes you were healed. (1 Pet 2:24.) How do you appropriate this great act of grace? 1.Believe that what the word of God has revealed is true.
2.Declare what God has said or done for us. (Proverb 15:4)
Stick to what God says. Don’t accept any other contrary evidence. Thank God for healing you. Please you are not saying it, to be healed, no, that is not an act of faith. You say so because Jesus has already taken away our sicknesses according to the scriptures. He is not yet to do it. It has already been done.
THIS is the grace of God answering the trouble of diseases. Get the picture of grace well. The Lord Jesus conquered diseases for us. He is presently our true identity. As He is, so are we in this world. (1st John 4:17) If he conquered diseases, we have likewise conquered diseases too. Let the word of God be fully settled in your heart. Focus on that finished work. By his stripes you were healed. Say what God says, and keep at it. Proverbs 18:21 KJV” Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof”. Let your tongue create life for you by saying what God has done for you.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for taking away my sicknesses and diseases. By faith, I do not bear them anymore. By your stripes I was healed. Thank you, Lord.
Matthew 8:16 & 17 KJV” When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses”.
Proverbs 15:4 KJV” A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit”.
