HIS BODY IS FOR OUR HEALING

HIS BODY IS FOR OUR HEALING

1 Corinthians 11:23-24 (NKJV) For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”

Our Jesus not only went to the cross for our sins, the Bible also tells us that other parts of His suffering were for us.  Look with me at Isaiah 53:4-5 (YLT): “Surely our sicknesses he hath borne, and our pains–he hath carried them, and we–we have esteemed him plagued, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 And he is pierced for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace is on him, and by his bruise there is healing to us.”

You see, every stripe that came on Jesus’ body was for our healing.  When they put the crown of thorns on His head, we were then able to receive peace in our minds.  God does not do things just for a show.  Everything that He does is for a purpose, and every wicked act that they put on the body of Jesus had a purpose.  If you are like me, I want all that Jesus did for me!

When you receive Communion and you have that piece of bread in your hand, remember all that He did for you at the cross.  Remember His sacrifice.  Speak to your Heavenly Father, and thank Him that by the stripes of Jesus, you are healed.  Thank Him that your family has healing in their bodies.

The devil wants us to be weak and sick, but it is God’s will that we live good, healthy lives.  Now this is not going to come without a fight, because the devil does not like it when you start confessing who you are in Christ Jesus and what God has provided for you.  You need to put your foot down, lean on the power of God (which is so much stronger than anything that the devil might bring against you) and watch the victories come into your life and your family’s lives!

CONFESSION: Jesus already paid the price for my healing, so I receive it today.  Communion is my declaration of God’s provision for me!
