Healing Has Already Been Done
|Godís healing power
is always flowing to us because of what Jesus Christ
accomplished on the Cross 2,000 years ago. I Peter 2:24 ends
with, "and by His wounds you have been healed."
The healing has already been done for each of us.
However, we are not always in a position to receive this
healing power flowing freely from our eternal God. Sometimes
there are blocks to our receiving this healing in our minds,
bodies and spirits.
Two major blockages
There can be two major blockages to our healing.
The first is that we donít really believe the healing
Scriptures which God has put in His Word. We need to learn
Scriptures such as Isaiah 53:5c which says, "Ö and
with His wounds, we are healed." Another important
healing Scripture for us to learn and believe is found in
Matthew 8:17 which says, "He took our weaknesses and
bore away our diseases."
Now if Godís Word says that Jesus took our weaknesses
and bore away our diseases, then thatís a fact. Letís
believe this Word and proceed with our healing prayers and
receive the healing.
Keep short accounts
A second major block to our receiving healing from
God also has to do with us! Our own unconfessed sins can
derail Godís healing power in an instant. For thirty years
I have advised people to "keep short accounts with
By that I mean "confess your sins each and every
day." Donít let the sin load pile up inside your
spirit. Instead, confess and get rid of those sins. By
confessing our sins, we put ourselves in a position to
receive our healing.
Letís keep our inner lives washed clean before the Lord
our God by confessing our sins and repenting of our sinful
actions. Then we can receive all of Godís healing power by
tapping into what God has already provided. Believe you
receive what He has already sent to each of us--His healing.

this aloud several times a day:
thank you, Lord Jesus, that you took my sins upon yourself
on the Cross. I Peter 2:24. I thank you, Lord Jesus, that
you took my sickness upon yourself on the Cross at the same
time. By your suffering I am already healed. I thank and
praise you for that. Amen and Amen.
