Never have I known the power of that scripture “by His stripes we are healed” until I took ill for most of last week and all I kept repeating was that scripture.
I tell you, there’s power in the spoken word of God! Especially when you believe it wholeheartedly.
While I was ill with low iron, lack of concentration feeling lethargic most of the time at work and I was taking my supplements well!! What could have been the problem? I really did not know but what I did know was that, this had to be fixed by God.
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. [Isaiah 53:5]
I told God, “you live in me, this is your body, you’ve got to fix it” and while reciting that verse of healing in my head and through my mouth, the healing happened. Every time, the enemy told me: “you are still ill” and I felt ill, I recited it to myself and it increased my faith.
Did I get healed? I definitely did. It didn’t happen immediately as some may think but it did take a lot from me. I had to lay it all down and my little faith began growing through that process.
Don’t stop confessing it, until you completely believe it!
