God’s healing is present and available for you this very day. The Lord Jesus Christ loves you; and He desires for you to enter into His healing presence and touch for your life. The Bible says; “But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5) NIV
This means that when Jesus died on the cross, He not only took the sins of the world upon Him; but He also took the pain, heartache, and bodily affliction of every individual as well. You don’t have to walk in defeat in your life. You can have victory and be an over comer. You can have joy, peace, prosperity, and emotional and physical stability. The devil comes to bring discouragement and destruction upon every person. Jesus said; “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10) NAS
How can you have healing, peace, and abundant living? The first step is welcoming Jesus Christ into your life and accepting Him as your Lord and Savior. You don’t have to be a perfect person, only a willing one. The Lord knows your innermost thoughts, desires, and shortcomings. Yet He is still willing to accept you and love you just as you are. All you have to say is “Yes Jesus, Yes, I accept You into my life and heart.” It is in this decision, and at the feet of Jesus that your healing and transformation begins.
The second step is building a relationship with the Lord. How do you do this? You do this through prayer and fellowship with the Holy Spirit; He is the Spirit of God. You do this through listening for His voice and opening your heart up to the things He has to say. You do this through reading God’s word and allowing the Holy Spirit to guide you and bring to life the scriptures before you. And you do this through obeying God’s voice and yielding yourself to His will and purpose for your life; leaving behind the former things, and pressing on to the future that the Lord has destined before you.
A perfect example of God’s healing power is found in the scriptures. It says; “Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind Him and touched the edge of His cloak. She said to herself, “If I only touch His cloak, I will be healed.” Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” He said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed from that moment. (Matthew 9:20-22) NIV
This woman put her faith in Jesus and knew that He would make her well. It was through her faith and belief that she moved the heart of Jesus and received healing for her life. She knew that if she could reach out and just touch His cloak that His power and presence would touch and transform her life. This woman believed. She believed in Christ and believed that His healing touch was relevant and present for her life.
This day, put your faith in Jesus Christ. Reach out and touch the hem of His garment. He is there. He is waiting. And His Healing presence and power can touch your life in this very moment. All you have to do is believe. Believe and say yes; “Yes Lord, I choose You.”
You can start by praying this prayer aloud to Him;
Dear Lord Jesus,
I ask that You would forgive me of my sins and wash me clean with Your blood. I choose You this day, and I say yes. Yes to You and Your will for my life. I ask that You would come into my heart and be the Lord of my life; and I ask that You would heal me this day. Transform my life and make me whole. I thank You for all these things.
In Jesus Mighty Name I Pray,
