DEVOTIONAL: His stripes have made us whole!
God is our healer! He is a healer of our broken bodies, our broken hearts, our broken relationships, and our broken minds. There are so many who are dealing with brokenness in one of these forms and I believe God wants us to seek Him more than ever to heal us, to heal others, and to heal our land. Finding the healing and comfort in God begins with a deeper walk with Him. When we dwell in His presence it brings peace, renewal, and healing.
God is aware of the wounds that people, circumstances and yes, our own sin has caused us in our lives. He knows what you are struggling with that is keeping you from living the abundant life He has chosen for you. God desires to heal all the wounds that are keeping you bound and unable to fulfill His purpose in your life. If you will wait on the Lord and open your heart, He will do what He has promised He will do and heal you. He has promised us all healing, transformation, and a life of complete abundance. You must open your heart and receive His gift of healing through the Holy Spirit. Through Christ we can experience the physical and emotional healing because the bible says in Isaiah 53:5 “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed.”
The most powerful thing we have in our lives is the word of God! Proverbs 18: 21 puts it this way: “The tongue has the power of life and death.” The stakes are high. Your words can either speak life, or your words can speak death into your life. That is why we must know the word of God and we must speak His word into our lives. Speak words of life! The word of God can heal your body, your mind and your soul and is able to make you whole! When doctors have walked away and others have given up hope, it is the word of God that heals.
He sent His word to heal us body, mind, and soul. His stripes have made us whole! In faith, claim your victory as His word begins to heal you. The enemy is roaming and seeking whom He can devour but when you abide in Him and let Him abide in you, the enemy is defeated. One thing God has shown me is that I must know His word and speak it over my life and to speak life in all situations.
It is by the words of our mouth and the meditation of our heart that brings forth whatever type healing we need. If you need a physical, emotional, or spiritual healing take His word and begin speaking it into your life. He is a healer of all things, speak the word of God over your life today and find healing in His word.
I have listed these healing Bible verses, begin speaking them over your life today. Be strong and solid in your faith, be immovable against the enemy and be HEALED!

Dear Heavenly Father I come to you today and ask for complete healing in my mind, body and soul. God you know that I have endured much and I ask that you deliver me and heal me. Comfort me in my suffering as I reach up to you for my healing so that I can be made whole again. Your word says that by your stripes I am healed and I am claiming that healing in Jesus name. Give me peace as I wait on you to bring me the healing that I am praying for. I have faith and trust you with my life. In Jesus name I pray….Amen!
