5. 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. KJV.
We all know this scripture and have quoted it many times for our healing. But do we really realize the depths of His suffering for us that we might live and be healed. He was despised and rejected and oppressed, yet He opened not His mouth. He carried all our griefs and sorrows. How many would that be? His face was marred more than any man.
Yet sometimes we do not even receive healing from Him. We go to man and have them put their big flashlight inside of us to see what the problem is. We are to have faith which is what is not revealed to the senses. And yet we are not content to wait for Him to heal us His way. We want to know that we are okay, and we want to know it right now. That is not His way of faith or patience.
He tells us that by His wounds we have been healed, 1 Peter 2:24. This is past tense. He has already done it. He does not give us the details like a doctor would. He chooses not to give us the details. If He says we have been healed, that should be enough for us to go our way singing His praises thanking Him for our healing.
When the devil brings sickness upon us at first, he brings a symptom. The symptom is meant to inject fear in our soul. How do we respond? If we believe by His wounds, we have already been healed, then we will not fear. We will believe the Word of God is truth and we will not believe out symptoms.
When we believe we have been healed, then we will resist any and all symptoms regarding them as temporary expecting healing. If we let the pain overwhelm us, then fear can get into our soul. It is always a battle especially in our children.
We are always to resist the devil and his lies and works and he will eventually flee. I know I have had certain things wrong that if I had gone to a physician, I would have given them the opportunity to give me a death sentence. I did not go, and I am still here.
We must put all of our trust and faith in the Mighty Power of the Cross and His stripes and the magnitude of His suffering. That is what we have been called to do. If He says, “By His stripes you have been healed,” then we have been healed. If we act contrary to this, we are basically calling Him a liar.
1 Peter 2:24 He personally bore our sins in His own body to the tree as to 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 healed. Amp.
