“I AM the Lord God who healeth thee.” I heard this verse spoken to me over the weekend when I was battling the symptoms of the flu. My husband prayed for me and the symptoms were gone within hours. I believed the report of the Lord.
Have you heard the good news that “By His stripes, you were healed?” (Isaiah 53, 1 Peter 2:24) I have been sent to tell you the GOOD NEWS, Beloved Child of God. That sickness, that disease does NOT belong to you, Beloved. So never claim it as yours . It belongs to the devil, the father of LIES. I see the outline of a born again Believer. I see a virus, a bacteria, a disease trying to come onto that Believer’s body. I see a line of demarcation. It is the Blood of Jesus that stands between you and the works of the devil. The devil cannot get through this Defense, Child of God. NO, he cannot! Hallelujah!
So although we live in this fallen world, DO NOT ACCEPT the world’s report, but ONLY BELIEVE that what your Father has spoken WILL come to pass. That Jesus took that infirmity on HIS body. Yes, the pain is real and the symptoms hurt. No one denies that.
Believe me, I have a long list of things that I have had to overcome through the years just as you have. But here is what I have learned. We are OVERCOMERS in Jesus. WE overcome By His Blood and by the WORD our testimony. No matter what it looks like or feels like, we make up our minds to believe the report of the Lord. We HAVE to. It is the last days.
Our enemy goes about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
There is NO other Name which is above the Name of Jesus. At His Name, that sickness, that disease HAS to bow. Do you believe this? By Jesus’ stipes, you WERE healed. It is finished. Our Father does not lie. He cannot lie. Keep fighting the good fight of faith Beloved. ONLY BELIEVE. You will win. You have already won. You fight FROM victory. Don’t say the word “but” anymore. grin emoticon Do not claim that disease as “yours”.
STAND, STAND, STAND and watch your enemies fall! Your LORD will not fail you! STAND and see the salvation of the Lord! You are the REDEEMED of Lord! Join in the parade as we march in triumph over our defeated foe, the Lord Jesus leading the way!!

“Who has believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? Surely He (Jesus) has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. 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” Isaiah 53:1-5.
“and Jesus, while being reviled, did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously; and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you WERE healed. For you were continually straying like sheep, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls”1 Peter 2:23-25.
“but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord”1 Corinthians 15:57-58.
“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world– our faith. Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?1 John 5:4-5.
