The Battle was Already Won
Duane Vander Klok
Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
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.
Now, you can know about healing, blessing, and favor, but if you do not apply your faith and receive what God wants to give you, you will not see it happen in your life. You may believe in healing, but are you believing for healing in your life? God has promised that by His stripes you were healed – Jesus already won that victory on the cross.
One of the enemy’s favorite lies to tell you is that you do not deserve God’s blessing, healing, or promises. He condemns by telling us that we are not good enough, we’ve messed up too many times, or that we are just too far gone. Take care not to fall into his trap! God says that you are redeemed by the blood of Jesus, and His blessing, healing, and promises are for you today!
2 Corinthians 5:18-19 says, Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Our past and our mistakes no longer follow us – they have been washed away through Jesus’s sacrifice. When you accept Jesus as your Lord, you receive all the blessing of being a son or daughter of the King!
In order to pray and walk in God’s will for your life, you have to know what He wants for you. Know that God wants you to be healed and whole and believe for healing in your life!
