Isaiah 53:5 states that “....with his stripes we are healed.” (King James Version) When we pray for healing, we really are not asking God to do something new. That brutal scourging that Christ took had meaning in every painful moment. God knew the diseases, injuries and illnesses we would face before they occurred in our lives. Just like He had a plan to save His People, He made a way for those who would live after Jesus’ time to be healed. We do not have to have mountain moving faith to believe that Jesus was wounded and bruised and beaten. The Word tells us so. God knew the needs of man that would come after His Christ, so He provided the solution before it was necessary. The idea is to tap into what has already been done for us so that the healing can manifest in our lives. The price been paid for us to be physically, emotionally and mentally well. God does not have to come up with a means to heal us. We need merely to receive the gift that Jesus gave to us through His suffering so many years before and allow it to be applied to our lives today.
