Perfect Health (Part 2)

Surely our sicknesses he hath borne, And our pains--he hath carried them, And we--we have esteemed him plagued, Smitten of God, and afflicted.
- Isaiah 53:4 (YLT)

2021 aug 1

The Young’s literal translation shown above renders this verse in a very appropriate manner, showing us that one of the most important benefits of Christ’s redemptive work is total liberation from sickness and pain.

The next verse in Isaiah chapter 53 also elaborates the healing virtues that flow in and through us as we acknowledge the substitutionary sufferings of Jesus in the redemptive process. You see, Jesus suffered every kind of sickness in our place so that we who have chosen to believe the report of the Lord and put our faith in His completed work of redemption do not have to suffer any sickness.

“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 (NKJV)

To “walk” constantly in this manifestation of perfect (Divine) health, we will have to allow our minds to become fully enlightened with this revelation through constant meditation on such redemptive scriptures. It is important that this reality becomes our consciousness and deep-rooted conviction so we are able to resist sickness with a full persuasion concerning God’s will for us to live in perfect health.

Brethren, we must never forget that healing and health are part of our inheritance package in Christ, which can only be appropriated by faith and enjoyed in a sustained manner when we operate constantly in God’s light.

“…giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins” (Colossians 1:12-14).

Beloved, make the decision today to walk in the light of God’s redemptive realities. When we walk in the light of God, the forces of darkness will be unable to cause us any harm. Get ready to step into the life of unprecedented liberty! As from this year, no force of darkness will ever stand successfully against you, in Jesus’ name! Amen
