Your healing was paid for by the Blood of Jesus!
Just because Jesus paid for our healing, doesn’t mean you will automatically manifest the benefits. You need to reach out and receive what Jesus did for you by faith! Jesus died for the sins of the world, but that doesn’t mean that the world will be saved, because they didn’t reach out with faith and receive what Jesus did for them!
How to receive your healing
Know what is rightfully yours: You need to understand that you, as a child of God, are fully entitled to your healing through the blood that Jesus shed when He was whipped (“By His stripes!”). If you don’t know it’s God’s will to heal you, then you’re going to lack faith, and faith is how you receive what Christ did for you. Just like when you were saved, it was by faith you received Christ into your heart and life. Same is true with healing, it is by faith that we receive the promises of God.
Repent of unconfessed sins: 1 John 1:9 tells us to confess our sins. Unconfessed sins can be sins lingering in our lives, and need to be addressed. We need to confess and forsake our sins, and when we do that, God graciously forgives us, and those sins can no longer hinder or block your healing. Once you confess and repent of your sin, your heavenly Father welcomes you with open arms (Luke 15)!
Release unforgiveness from your heart: If there’s somebody who you are holding grudges or bitterness against, then you need to release that hurt and bitterness from your heart. If somebody has wronged you, and you still think about their wrong whenever you think of them, then it’s time to give those feelings the Lord, and leave them there. Release the hurt from your heart that they have caused you, for unforgiveness can come between you and God and prevent your own sins from being forgiven (Matthew 6:15), and can give the enemy a legal ground to bring trouble upon you (Matthew 18:23-35), such as spirits of infirmity, sickness, diseases, etc. Make the choice today to release those hurt feelings, and pray something like this out loud, “Father, I have been holding bitterness in my heart against _______ because they did _________ to me, and I regret not forgiving them as you have asked of me. Forgive me for not forgiving them as I should have. I now release those hurt feelings to you in Jesus’ name, Amen.” (Repeat prayer for different people and situations if necessary.) Forgiveness is a choice, and when you make that choice, God can help you heal and release those hurt feelings in your heart against that person(s)
Speak a word in faith: Jesus gave you authority to heal and be healed, therefore speak to the part of your body that needs a healing, and command it to BE HEALED IN JESUS’ NAME! Just like Jesus and the early church did: John 5:8, “Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.” And in the early church: Acts 3:6, “Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.”
Do you have faith to receive your healing?
Here are a few scriptures for healing, but remember, if you don’t possess the faith to be healed, you are merely uttering words with no power…healing power is in the blood of Jesus according to your faith…
(Jer 33:6 KJV)Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth
(2 Ki 20:5 KJV)Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the LORD
(Psa 103:3 KJV)Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
(Psa 30:2 KJV)O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me
(1 Pet 2:24 KJV)Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed
(Mat 4:23-24 KJV)And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people….And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them
