“But now, thus says the Lord, Who created you, O Jacob, and He formed you, O Israel: ‘Fear not, for I have redeemed you, I have called you by your name; you are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you.” Isaiah 43:1-2
Those suffering with sickness and disease can find encouragement and comfort in what God says in this portion of scripture.
“But now, thus says the Lord, Who created you, O Jacob, and He formed you, O Israel…”
God created your body and He can certainly fix it! God’s plan for your life does not include sickness and disease. His plan and will for your life is for you to be perfectly whole in spirit, soul and body. (See 3 John 2.)
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you…”
On the cross, Jesus legally paid the price for your healing. (See Isaiah 53:4-5.) Healing is a FINISHED work of the cross. You have been redeemed from sickness and disease. Healing is not something that God gives today. According to 1 Peter 2:24 we WERE healed over two thousand years ago!
Let this truth sink deep into your spirit: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE SICK ANYMORE! Healing belongs to you because of what Jesus did for you at the cross. We do not have to wait on God to heal us because He already has! Today, God is waiting on us to receive the healing that He has already provided.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned.”
You are not in this alone! God has not forgotten you. He has not forsaken you. In Hebrews 13:5 God promised, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” It may not look like everything is going to be OK right this moment, but God said that you will, “PASS THROUGH the waters.” He said that you will not drown in the river. And He said that when you “WALK THROUGH the fire, you will not be burned.” In other words, if you will hold onto your confession of faith in His healing promises, you will come out on the other side, healthy and whole!
Confession: I have been redeemed from sickness and disease. Divine health and healing is my legal right through Christ Jesus.
