October 21, 2009, "My Healer"

"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 ~

"...who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness--by whose stripes you were healed."
~ I Peter 2:24 ~

My husband and I were cooking and eating together early evening yesterday; when it seemed out of nowhere the 'chills' started on my back. My mood was immediately moved by the chills as it was a signal to my brain, "You're getting sick." Immediately, because I am learning of the promises of God it became an all out WAR!

I was being convinced by my body that I was getting sicker by the moment. Yet in the same moment I was being reminded in my spirit, as I was reminding my mind that I am not to be moved by what I feel or see, but to be immovable because of the Word of God.

I'm sure my husband received great validation of how much crazier his wife is, when I started jumping up and down by faith rejoicing that I was healed. I was envisioning my body healed (faith). Well, it seemed the more I did it, the more my body convinced me I was truly crazy and still really sick! Haahaaahaaa! At the same time I saw that this was also a result of a lack of rest.

Around 7:30 pm I went to bed and was awakened shivering cold at about 9:45 pm. I got up out of bed to say, "Good night" to the kids and saying our prayers with my husband. I made a quick phone call and texted a few messages and went back to bed, as my body was soaking in the rest like a sponge. I was going through this great unwavering state where I knew what God said, but I knew what my body was saying too. I can't 'feel' or 'see' God many times, so I usually go with what is tangible, and that can be quite deceiving and dangerous.

This morning, I awoke and slowly but surely got showered, 'put my face on' and styled my hair. My head was starting to fill up with pressure as well as my ears; my throat was slowly becoming sore by the minute. I looked into the mirror and reminded myself, "I am healed in Jesus name." "I praise You Lord that I am healed."

Now please know that I didn't feel like doing any of this. I just wanted to curl up in my bed and go to sleep. Suddenly, what came through me were these words, "Sickness is like depression; when it is entertained, it will overtake you." I held onto those words. I was reminded of the promise in Isaiah and I Peter that by the Stripes of Jesus we are and were healed.

I had to think back on the movie, "The Passion of The Christ", by Mel Gibson. I remembered the horrific scene in which these barbaric Roman soldiers violently by great force using their barbaric whips tore Jesus' back apart. When I was reminded of that, I said, "I know Lord You did not do that in vain, I receive my healing from You right now. I know the healing was there before I was even born, and I receive that now in Jesus name, for by Your stripes You made sure I was healed." For me personally, I held onto that, and guess what? I am not kidding, within minutes, the healing of God overtook my body and not the sickness. Don't think doubt hasn't tried to come against me since that time. I must remind myself by the convicting of the Spirit of God that doubt has no place when faith is present!

Some may call it a 'happenstance', some may call it the 12 hour bug; BUT I choose to believe and call it being healed by my Almighty Physician; Who was, is and forever will be Almighty God, Almighty Healer!

It is difficult not to be moved...but in the end as my pastor said, "Victory is already it becomes a CHOICE whether I walk in it or not."

I must remember that His healing provision was on all three parts. Emotional/Mental (Mind or Soul), Physical (Body) and More than anything our Spirit being renewed and 'reborn' to God through Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit.

I am so grateful for the healing power of God that I have seen be revealed upon my body today. Let His power and strength overtake us with Who He is; The Great Lover, Healer, Restorer and Refresher!


  1. Obviously you have a great gifting of faith. You're strengthening your spiritual muscles! :O)

  2. I am right there with you sister! Praise God for your healing. I experienced this Sunday during our healing service. Just felt the Lord giving and I was receiving - not even knowing what it was, but I received the healing!
