Do you shy away from Jesus as your healer? A trace of shyness would reveal a lack of confidence with Him. Scriptures tell us in Hebrews 4:16, “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” He desires us to be bold and confident around Him, not shy and timid. And this boldness will be developed within you as you come to know Him for who He really is.
The enemy wants to keep you in bondage to his lies, that you cannot trust Jesus to heal you. And that somewhere in God’s plan of redemption, Jesus the Healer, and His supernatural healing was done away with. Let’s look what the Word of God has to say about these two lies that might cause you to shy away from your Healer, Jesus.
The Prophet Isaiah prophesies about Jesus Christ being our healer by the great suffering He would bear to heal us in Isaiah 53:4-5, “But [in fact] He has borne our griefs, and He has carried our sorrows and pains; Yet we [ignorantly] assumed that He was stricken, struck down by God and degraded and humiliated [by Him]. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was crushed for our wickedness [our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing]; the punishment [required] for our well-being fell on Him, and by His stripes (wounds) we are healed.“
Maybe you struggle with this because someone told you He does not heal today. But Numbers 23:19 tells us the difference between this someone and our God in Numbers 23:19, “God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?” He said in Isaiah 53:5, that by His stripes you were healed. He said it, He set in motion His plan of action for your healing, and He is not changing His mind, or going back on His healing promise.
The New Testament verse makes a clear statement concerning Jesus Christ in Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” He was the Healer back then, and He is still the Healer today.
As I share in my new book, The Healing Creed, the Spirit of God revealed to the prophet Isaiah that there would be great controversy today concerning healing that’s why he asks us a very prophetic question, “Who has believed our report?“ Isaiah 53:1.
In order to seek Him as your healer, you need to learn to believe God’s Word that He is just that –your healer. He tells us in Exodus 15:26, “I am the Lord who heals you.”
I have given you something to ponder upon, “Are you shy and timid when it comes to Jesus being your healer?” Now, allow me to teach you to be bold and courageous, fully confident that He is your healer, and is fully willing and able to heal you too in my new book, The Healing Creed.
