Power to Heal

Today’s 333 Devotional: “Power to Heal”

One of the great needs of our day is that of healing, which isn’t just physical in nature, but also emotional and spiritual, and they are all interconnected, and for all three to take place we must go to the ultimate healer, Jesus, and what He provided, His blood.

Now this doesn’t discount our need for doctors, but have we taken our need and request to the Lord first? Have we prayed about it?

Concerning the coming Messiah, the prophet Isaiah in 53:5 said, “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.”

Peter said, “Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness–by whose stripes you were healed.” (1 Peter 2:24)

If there had been no blood in those stripes, there would be no healing.

The word “healed” translated from both Hebrew and Greek can mean either spiritual or physical healing. But the contexts of Isaiah 53:5 and 1 Peter 2:24 make it clear they are referring to spiritual healing.

But God had more in mind. Right before our verse in Isaiah 53:5, the prophet says, “Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows.” (Isaiah 53:4a)

In Matthew’s gospel it says, “They brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: ‘He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses.’” (Matthew 8:16-17)

The Bible says that not only does God forgive our sins, but heals all our diseases.

“Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits — who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases” (Psalm 103:2-3)

So it’s the blood Jesus shed that not only forgives sins, but also brings healing.
