“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 53:5
Those words from the prophet Isaiah are words we are reminded of when facing sicknesses or other health crises. It’s the first go-to verse others will use when attempting to encourage those dealing with such maladies. Yet, the Bible doesn’t narrow the power and authority of this verse or its meaning to only travel down the avenue of physical pain and/or illness. No, my friend. Its scope and range are mighty for so much more.
Healing is not limited to only what the body is dealing with. As a whole person, we may have other areas that may seem out of whack that need the touch of the Savior’s sacrificing blood to flow toward its troubles and restore, fix, and yes, heal, whatever ails a person.
What’s to stop the power of His sacrifice from flowing into the crevices of relationships or to help in any number of places and with the many decisions we face, along with the hope of health for the body?
The stripes that tore His flesh cannot be confined to just the healing of the flesh. Today, when you think of the word healing, what area of your life instantly comes to mind at this moment? It may be a physical illness that you are dealing with, and I stand in prayer with you over it. But, does something else come to mind? A hurt that is not physical? Resoration sought in another area? His stripes come to heal all areas of our lives, and I pray for the places where you need His healing touch, be it heart, mind, body, life, relationships, or wherever. Don’t limit the power of His sacrifice. Do not limit the impact this great word and promise can have in your life.
Whatever came to mind when I asked you, “when you think of the word healing, what comes to mind?”, even this, even that thing that instantly came to mind, He is able to heal and cure the worst of it.
O Lord, we pray, that You would touch us and keep us under Your healing flow, no matter what issues we may encounter today. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I pray, AMEN!
