I have prayed and believed God to heal me, but I have not yet seen the healing I desire for my body.
As you are trusting in the Lord, know without a shadow of doubt that as surely as Jesus has borne your sins, He also bore your diseases (Isaiah 53:5, New Living Translation). God loves you so much, that He sent His son Jesus to give you abundant life (John 3:16, John 10:10)—wholeness in body, mind, relationships, finances and health. In the same way earthly parents desire the best for their children, God, who is our loving heavenly Father, wants His children to be healthy, happy and whole. It is His will that you may prosper in all things and be in health (3 John 1:2)!
When He was on earth, Jesus, God's perfect will in action, healed all who were brought to Him (Matthew 4:23–24). Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is still willing and able to heal and restore wholeness to your body today. The Lord does not, and will never, withhold healing from you.
The Lord is not just willing for you to be healed and delivered from all physical afflictions (Psalm 103:3), but He has also, through His sacrifice at Calvary, already paid the full price for your healing. At the cross, He bore not just our iniquities, but also all our infirmities and sicknesses (Matthew 8:16–17). He was bruised, crushed and scourged, so that by His stripes, we are healed (Isaiah 53:4–5, New Living Translation). Jesus was made a curse on the cross so that the curse of sickness cannot prevail in our bodies. In exchange, we received His abundant, resurrection life and the blessings of Abraham when we put our faith in Him (Galatians 3:13–14).
So, regardless of whatever symptoms you might be experiencing in your body, come boldly to the throne of grace, and claim your healing from all sickness and disease. Even if the healing breakthrough you desire does not manifest immediately, rest secure in the perfection of Jesus' finished work and confidently expect to see your breakthrough come to pass. He is, today and always, "the Lord who heals you" (Exodus 15:26)!
As you wait upon the Lord, we encourage you to focus and meditate on Jesus' love for you and His finished work. To help you along, please visit
