We are still looking at the fact that God loves you and has made provision for your healing in the death of His Son Jesus Christ.
Today, we will start from where we’d left off yesterday. If God loves me, then why am I not healed in my body?
To answer that, let’s remind ourselves what we said yesterday: in the sight of God, you are already healed.
Your healing has been paid for by Christ. It’s all yours to enjoy. However, what we have given to us by grace, we must receive by our personal faith. Faith in Christ’s sacrificial death. Faith in our healing in Him.
The Spirit of God through apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians 2:8 that,
“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.”
What God has given to us by His grace, we take a hold of it by our faith. By our faith, we reach out and grasp our healing, which has been paid for in full by Christ’s grace.
Faith is a personal responsibility. You can grow your own faith by taking time to labor in the Word of God. Spend time meditating on healing Scriptures, and God’s love for you. I have discovered that, faith for anything else, becomes a lot easier, when our focus is on God’s boundless and and unconditional love. When we know just how greatly God loves us, it becomes easier trusting Him for our healing and every other thing.
God loves you and dearly prizes you. And has provided for your healing. So reach out in faith and receive it, that Christ may be glorified in your body.
I remembered a long time ago, when I took ill with fever. I was shaking all over and my body was really hot. This continued for three days. So on Sunday, after everyone had left for church, I decided to watch Mel Gibson’s Passion of the Christ. For no obvious reason, I decided to play the second disc instead of the first. And the first thing I saw was the scene where Christ’s flesh was been torn by the Roman whip. Something powerful jerked inside of me. I got up from where I was sitting, and with such fury, I told myself that if Christ went through all that for me, then I had no reason being held down by fever. My faith rose up. And that was it, the fever left me.
It’s my prayer that you will have your focus on Christ’s unfathomable love for you and the healing He has made available for you through His death.
