The Bible says that the services of doctors are necessary (Luke 5:31; Jeremiah 8:22). Through them He treats the sick and heals them. Whenever we undergo sickness, it breaks our hearts. Christ knows this pain; to heal our sicknesses, He bore all our diseases when He suffered on the Cross. Matthew 8:17 says, "He took up our infirmities and carried our diseases."
The Lord was crucified for every one of our diseases and infirmities. His whole body was bruised for us. A crown of thorns on His head, nails piercing His hands and feet, bleeding wounds all over His body caused by Roman soldiers’ merciless flogging- all these led to His most torturous and shameful death. When we cry out in our sorrows and sicknesses caused by our sins or brought by the devil, there is only one to hear us and help us. He is the compassionate Christ. No one else can live their life for us. Only Lord Jesus died for us.
We went to Guntakal to conduct a prayer meeting. During the witnessing time, a man came running to the stage without his shirt. He said that he had a terrible disease in his chest. His chest had been cut into two. When we preached about the stripes of the Lord and prayed that His nail-pierced hand should touch the sick, he saw a hand descending down. There were the marks of the nail on that hand. The hand sutured the cut in his chest like a skilled surgeon and the wound was perfectly healed! I saw the sutures and thanked God. The Lord had performed a miracle all in a moment. His healing stripes are sufficient to give us miraculous cure even today.
The Bible says, “He sent forth His Word and healed them” (Psalm 107:20). The Word of God has the power to heal all kinds of sicknesses. When you place Your faith in His Word, His healing power will work in you bringing you health and life.
Loving Lord Jesus,
You bore all our sicknesses on the Cross. Your Word has the power to heal all kinds of sicknesses. I place faith in Your Word and seek divine healing for me. Your healing stripes are sufficient to grant me a miraculous healing. Please touch me with Your nail-pierced hands and heal me by Your stripes. Let Your healing power work in me bringing me health and life.
In Your matchless name I pray.
